Citizen TV presenter Willis Raburu has issued a statement on his Instagram account requesting media outlets and blogs to address him as a father of two when making reference to the number of children he has.

Raburu said, “It has however come to my attention while reading some of them that I am constantly referred to as a “father of one.” This however is not the case. As many of you know I lost my daughter Adana. For those who have gone through such loss, you know it never leaves you.”

He made it clear that although his first daughter Adana passing away does not stop him from being a father of two, and that being addressed as a father of one is not factual.

“Loss is painful but it can never be negated, no matter what or who thinks so. It is a humble request, not a demand, should you still continue to refer to me otherwise it is okay. I know my truth. That Willis Wayne Edwin Opiyo Otondi Raburu, is a FATHER OF TWO,” the statement read.

He acknowledged that he recently welcomed a baby boy with his girlfriend, Ivy Namu and he sees pure heaven whenever he looks at his son.

Raburu and ex-wife, Marya Prude split up soon after the death of their daughter in January 2021 due to complications that led to stillbirth.
