Waihiga Mwaura Citizen Tv
Speaking of his career, Waihiga grew up like all other kids having different career choices. He initially wanted to be a pilot. When his family moved from Donholm to Westlands, technical sciences piqued his interest pushing him to eventually pursue a computer science degree at Africa Nazarene University.
Having not gone the conventional path of formal media training, media felt far removed. This prompted him to get into acting even as he asked around for media internships and dropped his CV at media houses. After one season of production, he realized that he was also not cut out for acting.
It is during this period that he refers to as a ‘wilderness experience’ that he got his first call to audition for a show at Citizen TV. Unfortunately, he did not get the callback. Always the optimist, he reveals that this period allowed him to trust in God and learn how to survive on little money.
Finally, a vacancy presented itself within the organization after two seasons of Zinduka and he thus joined the Power Breakfast show team, where he worked for two years, becoming a familiar face on TV screens. Around the same time, he also involved himself with the sports desk and when the breakfast show ran its course, he joined the sports desk fully as a producer and anchor. It was here that he would slowly but surely become a household name.
This saw him clinch the CNN MultiChoice Africa Award in 2012 for a story on Maasai Morans who were using the cricket in the fight against female genital mutilation (FGM) dubbed Maasai Cricket Warriors. In 2015, he won the inaugural Mo Amin Award for a story on doping in athletics that was recognized by World Anti-Doping Agency who warned Kenyan authorities against laxity in taking action against the vice.
