Unhappy union: Betty Kyallo drops hubby’s name
In what could be the clearest hint yet on speculations about her troubled marriage to investigative journalist Dennis Okari, KTN presenter, Betty Kyallo, has dropped her husband’s name on her Twitter handle and reverted to her maiden name.
The move by the renowned news anchor has become a trending topic on social media with many Kenyans online taking it as a confirmation that the marriage of the two media personalities is indeed on the rocks.
The couple got married late-last year in a lavish ceremony that was hyped by the media as Nairobi’s 2015 wedding of the year.
Thereafter, the two lovebirds flew off to various holiday destinations overseas from where they kept their online followers abreast with pictures and videos of their expensive excursion.
But just six months later, speculation is rife that their marriage has hit rock bottom.
Things started going south in January this year when Betty hosted popular Kenyan rapper Prezzo in her weekly show Friday Briefing with the musician appearing drunk on set.
Mr Okari would later openly criticize Prezzo for flirtation with his wife live on national TV while the musician’s mother reportedly apologized to Betty on her son’s behalf.
Since Friday when Betty changed her Twitter handle from @BettyOkari to @BettyMKyallo, Kenyans on Twitter have weighed in on the debate with the hashtag #BettyWedsDennis trending, as was the case when the two got married.
