Chaka Ranch is owned by Wachura Waruru, a veteran journalist and Royal Media Services Group Managing Director.

Waruru has served as the business’ chairman since its establishment in 2016.

The RMS MD is the son of late former Nyeri member of parliament Waruru Kanja.

He went to Lenana High School for his High School education, and later joined Kenyatta University where he pursued a Bachelor of Education Degree.

After University, he picked media over his teaching profession and started working for the Nairobi Times focusing on business related topics.

Unfortunately, his successful career was cut short after the newspaper was sold to KANU, which had no desire to work with a journalist they considered an anti-establishment radical.

Waruru went ahead to start his PR and consultancy firm which landed him Group Editorial Director job at Standard Media Group.

He later joined state broadcaster KBC as the Managing Editor where he worked for five years and left to join Royal Media Services in 2007.

Shortly after joining the station, he revolutionized Citizen TV by investing in high quality local drama programs that elevated the station to greater heights.

The restructuring of Citizen TV and coming up with insightful news bulletins and stories produced and executed with efficiency made the channel the power house it is today.
