Dennis Okari responds to Betty Kyalo’s claims he is a deadbeat

Published

on

Media personality Dennis Okari has responded to allegations that he is a deadbeat dad.

Speaking to Word Is on the phone, he said,

I will not discuss family now, but at some point I will speak because so many things have been written about me, but people who say those things don’t know me well.

The public first learnt that Okari and ex-wife Betty are not co-parenting in July last year. The drama started when Okari called out Betty for exposing their daughter Ivanna on social media.

My daughter does not deserve the kind of publicity she has been getting. She deserves to grow up quietly and no one, including myself as her father, should interfere with her rights to privacy, he said.

Betty took a subliminal shot at him, implying he is a deadbeat dad, while replying to a fan who was narrating how he was raising his children as a single parent.

I have a son age 4 and a daughter age 2, their mother ran away and as a father, I took full responsibility to make sure my kids are growing up in a good environment. And every day when I wake up I look at them, kiss them and I get motivated and the urge to hustle more so they won’t feel the absence of their mum, the fan wrote.

To which Betty said, “I love this. Much love for you and your kids. I resonate with you because I’m all my daughter has.”

In the recent interview with Word Is, Okari said, “I have friends who know me very well and they get concerned when they read these things.

The question about me being a deadbeat is what has been said or what has been written, but a lot of it is not true. One day you will come to know about these things.

As a media personality, Okari is one person who receives trolls on a daily basis, but he says he takes the positive criticism and sidelines the negative ones. “You can never live without critics,” he said.

I chose what I take because people may troll you out of jealousy while others may mean well and they want you to improve on what they are criticising you about. I take the positive ones seriously and that has helped me improve so much in life because I am not perfect.

Okari added that one cannot live a life of impressing people because one may end up struggling. “Some people just want to vent and to unleash that on you through trolls, because we are living in a world that is so cruel and hurting,” he said.

Pressure mounts on Citizen TV to stop airing ’10 over 10′ show

Published

on

“A national television station such as Citizen TV should not bring a show which is more of a discotheque with all sorts of pornography, nudity and sexual provocation being promoted” said Kioko.

The director of Kenya Films and Classification Board Dr Ezekiel Mutua has in the past raised similar concerns about the show.

However, Dr Mutua says it’s impossible to cancel the show because it is comes on air after the watershed period.

The show, which is hosted by Willis Raburu, airs on Citizen TV every Friday night.

Here are some of online comments about the show:

Dr. Ezekiel Mutua, MBS

@EzekielMutua

I am very happy to see the campaign against 10/10 – the obscene crap run by @WillisRaburu on @citizentvkenya. Sometimes I wonder whether the owners of the station care about morality. Would they let their kids watch the discotheque on TV. Shame on the managment & owners too!

An amateur video is making rounds on social media showing a police helicopter rescuing a man who is stranded on the rooftop of a house in Joska.

The man seems to have climbed to the rooftop following floods that are being witnessed in the area due to the ongoing heavy rainfall.

In the video, the helicopter is seen descending above a house marooned in flood waters.

It then stops mid-air to allow the man to get on board.

In the background, people are heard shouting as they praise the pilot for saving a life.

“Today Ndung’u has boarded a plane and he does not have a passport,” a man is heard saying.

On Wednesday the meteorological department warned that the rains pounding several parts of the country will persist until the end of December.

The department asked Kenyans to be on the lookout for overflowing river banks and landslides.

Western Kenya, the Lake Basin, and Rift Valley were named as areas that will experience more rainfall.
