Mercy Kyallo humbled by brother’s alcoholism fight

Published

on

TV presenter Betty Kyallo’s sister Mercy Kyallo says dealing with their brother’s alcohol addiction was a most trying experience.

“One of the lowest moments in our lives and the most humbling was when our brother was battling with alcoholism,” Mercy told Word Is on Sunday.

“We had to take him to rehab.”

The brother is finally alcohol-free, but the whole situation means a lot to her.

“We never talk about that and we never really talk about mental health. And that is something that is close to my heart. He is now perfect and back to himself,” she said.

Adding, “Just that process of taking a loved one to rehab, and dealing with drug addiction, it just really humbled me and is an experience I will never forget. And I will never judge anybody going through such a situation.”

As part of her things to do this year, Mercy says she will be highlighting the issues to do with mental health to inspire more people.

“I respect anybody working with anything to do with the mental health. As a society, we never talk about mental health,” she said.

“Everyone talks about physical abuse or emotional abuse, but no one talks about mental health or even accepts that it is a growing problem in Kenya. It is a disease just like any other.”

Mercy Kyallo is the founder of Yallo Leather Company, an online company.

She was introduced to many on social media by her celebrity sister, Betty Kyallo.

“I did not want to be a celebrity. I did not sign up to be famous. Not many people become famous because of their siblings. And that happened to me. So, I have just been authentic. I don’t pretend to be anything. That is why when I feel like dressing official, I do so, I just do me,” Mercy said.

We were not happy anymore – Lilian Muli speaks on split from ex-husband

Published

on

Days after K24 news anchor Betty Kyallo opened up to her Instagram followers that she is happy that her ex-husband Dennis Okari has moved on, Lilian Muli has taken a cue.

Speaking to Kalekye Mumo, Muli disclosed that her relationship with ex-husband, Moses Njuguna Kanene, came to a slow, grinding halt and they had to go their separate ways.

The Citizen TV anchor narrated that though the relationship was bliss at first, it reached a point where she felt “strangulated.”

She added that they mutually agreed to part ways and still remain friends to date.

I was young, I was a small girl. That seems like a long time ago but it was pretty romantic. He was my friend, he remain my friend to date. He is an extremely romantic gentleman and so he guided me a lot along that process, it is what it is, things didn’t work out. He is a person I respect to date

We were not happy anymore, and we just got to a place where you know we were not friends anymore, and I felt strangulated, I just felt that the Lilian I knew was getting suffocated in this environment and we mutually opted it was not working. We agreed to go separate ways. It is easier that way, there is no unnecessary drama. Once you have a child with someone really that person is your life forever,” Muli told Kalyekye.

Renowned Dallas-based gospel arstiste, Lizz Ndung’u MD is set launch her latest album in Texas this coming weekend (Sunday February 24th, 2019) at Rhema Gospel Church: 2700 Warren Circle, Irving, Texas 76502 at 2:30 PM. 

The forthcoming album is titled “Ndimuirigire”  ( I am guarded) which talks about how God  protects His people by surrounding them with a divine hedge of fire.

Besides being a singer, the former Atlanta resident is also a song writer whose star has continued to rise since she launched her first CD six years ago.

Her first album titled  “kirigiriro” (Hope) was released in 2013 while the second album entitled “Ngai ndarikitie nawe” (God id not done with you yet) was launched in 2016.

“I consider it  a huge blessing to introduce an additional name in my third album, ‘MD’ which stands for my husband. My previous albums only bore my first two names, Lizz Ndung’u, but I have since gotten married and I thank God greatly for that,” said Lizz in a Press Statement sent to KSN this week.

The event, which will be presided over by Rev. Dr.  Solomon Waigwa will be graced by a retinue of fellow gospel artistes with popular Diaspora media personality Jeremy Damaris as the Master of Ceremonies (MC).

She says this new release will touch many in a myriad ways besides being a blessing to those who will watch or listen to it.
