To resolve this issue, you can open the widgets file in the \wp-content\themes\dw-focus\inc\widgets folder.
Find the following code:

                            if( isset( $instance['cat'] ) && $instance['cat'] ) {
                                $categories_list = get_the_category_list( __( ', ', 'dw_focus' ) );
                                    if ( $categories_list && dw_focus_categorized_blog() ) :
                                <span class="cat-links">
                                    <?php printf( '%1$s', $categories_list ); ?>

Then replace with the following code:

<span class="cat-links">
<?php $sep = '';
foreach((get_the_category()) as $cat) {
    echo $sep . '<a href="' . get_category_link($cat->term_id) . '"  class="cat-' . $cat->slug . '" title="View all posts in '. esc_attr($cat->name) . '">' . $cat->cat_name . '</a>';
$sep = ', ';

Right now, you can use class cat- to change the Categories color.
Eg: your categories: Blog / Business / Entertainment.

Your Class:

.cat-blog {...}
.cat-business {....}
cat-entertainment {...}

Hope this helps !
