“Ngĩribotera Inooro TV, njĩtagwo Mũitĩrĩri wa Wangarĩ.” (Reporting for Inooro TV, this is Muitiriri wa Wangari).

Muitiriri’s journey to journalism did not take the typical career path. Straight from high school, he knew that he wanted to be journalist, inspired by the likes of Jack Oyoo Sylvester and Ali Salim Manga. But the level of poverty was to high thus forcing him to seek enrollment in forces.

And after a few years dabbling as a farmer and a construction worker (kanda ya moko), Muitiriri got the opportunity to join the Kenya Police in 2004.

Muitiriri wa Wangari
As reported by a Kikuyu bulletin(Wandindi) Mũitĩrĩri wa Wangarĩ had to save bit by bit to enroll at Kenya Institute of Mass Communication.
In his three years of schooling, he shuffled between living with friends, renting a shanty in a slum and almost missing his final exam due to outstanding fee balances.

He states that nothing comes easy in life urging Kenyans not to give up.
“I faced a lot in life especially in the forces but that didn’t shutter my dreams of achieving my passion of Journalism,’he said.
