On his part, Mwaura noted that his wife supported him throughout the journey even when he thought that the journey would never end.
"God done did it. M.A. in Communication (Media Studies). What a journey this has been, one I thought would never end (story for another day). But here we are. So many people to thank. My beloved @joyceomondi for all the support through this journey. My family who encouraged me to never give up.
“A very helpful group of people at Daystar University. The PhD students who pushed me on. And to anyone I may have forgotten-thank you. As Malcolm X once said, Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. #ClassOf2023 #FaithfullisOurGod." Mwaura wrote.
Mwaura resigned from Citizen TV in May 2023, bringing his impressive career spanning more than 14 years at the Royal Media Services-owned station to an end.
