“I have called this place home, when I came here, I was a young man, who did not even have a family then. All my major milestones have happened. Now I have two families, my wife and kids and as well as the Royal Media Services (RMS) family that includes my colleagues, our viewers, listeners, and readers” Gachuri added.
He on the other hand thanked the Media outlet owners, chairman SK Macharia and Vice-Chair Mrs. Macharia together with the Managing Director Wachira Waruru and other directors including Linus Kaikai, Fred Afune, Latifah Ngunjiri, Moses Karanja, Micheal Ngugi, and Carol Wanyama for being an integral part of his career.
