By Winnie Onyando September 17th, 2022 2 min read

Media personality, Willis Raburu has called out people who have been using his current photo to advertise their natural weight loss products.

In a post in his social media page, the TV presenter said individuals have been using his photos to illegally and unjustly promote their rudimentary, fickle and fraudulent products.

“They have done this without my express permission and are in violation of so many rights and laws,” said Raburu.

He said those using his photos are attempting to dupe very honest Kenyans and advised his followers not to fall for such scams.

“Weight loss is a serious issue and should not be treated with such contempt. Ignore! It is well documented that I did a gastric bypass surgery with Nairobi Bariatric,” said Raburu.

He also said that he is available for consultation about his drastic weight loss.

“I remain available to advise as best as I can and if I don’t I’ll point you in the right direction. Once again I condemn this irreverent act. Stay safe. Stay informed,” said Raburu.

Raburu recently revealed details of his gastric bypass surgery that cost him Sh900,000. Gastric bypass is a type of weight loss surgery that involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting the newly created pouch directly to the small intestine.

Before the drastic weight loss, Raburu revealed that he tried several ways to help him reduce weight but they have not been successful.

“I have gone for vigorous training at the gym. I have done workouts but my weight reduces for a while then it all suddenly comes back. Not that I don’t like the gym, but it did not work for me,” he said.

Before he went for the surgery, Raburu revealed that he was weighing 164 kilograms.
