Denis Otieno

Business Reporter

My name is Denis Otieno. I am in my early thirties.

I have always been passionate about journalism and connecting with the people around me. Getting to the bottom of things, knowing the truth and informing people; these are the reasons that led me to this job. I love my career.

I joined Citizen TV in the year 2009 as a trainee. You will not believe this. I always thought I would be a Sports Journalist because during my time in campus, I thought that is the direction I should take. Things changed when I was given an opportunity to train at the Business Desk. I learnt a lot and quickly began to enjoy business reporting, though it is a complex and somehow a specialised segment of journalism.

I am a senior business reporter today, with a bias in stories touching on agriculture. I have a segmented feature running every Wednesday night on Citizen TV that explains all this. It is called Smart Farm.
