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.

Nick Mutuma breaks silence over sexual assault claims 

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Kenyan actor Nick Mutuma has broken his silence, 4 years after he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a viral Twitter thread.

In a statement posted to Twitter on Monday, Mutuma said the resurfacing of the 2016 allegations had presented a week-long nightmare to him and his family.

“The allegations that came out against me in 2017 have since resurfaced and have taken a toll on me… they have affected my family and sadly continue to affect the people in my personal and professional life,” his statement reads.

He acknowledged that although he had had his own share of imperfections, he was not the monster a section of Tweeps had portrayed him to be.

“I do not want my silence to be interpreted as guilt or complacency, yet I do not want to speak and have my words misrepresented, I have been tried at the court of public opinion and ruled guilty by persons with malicious intentions,” he added.

According to Mutuma, a section of social media ne’er -do-wells were hell-bent on tearing down a career that he has fought tooth and nail to build for the last 10 years.

“They have been trying to discredit all my hard work, and they have done their best to see that my dreams never come true,” he explained.

“I would like to categorically state that I am against any form of abuse against women and I have always been,”

Rachel Mwangi whose partner has written the viral thread has since clarified that the matter- whose truth has been subject of online debate- was put to bed in 2017.

“In 2016, there was an incident between Nick Mutuma and I, that my partner KoomeGitobu posted on social media in November 2017, Mutuma reached out to us shortly after, and we resolved it amicably and privately in 2017,” Ms Mwangi wrote on Twitter.

Mutuma is currently riding the coattails of the global success of two of his films- Disconnected and Sincerely Daisy- which recently premiered on Netflix

My children saved me from suicide, reveals YouTuber Maureen Waititu

Published

on

There is no beating around the bush – lawyer and YouTuber Maureen Waititu has beaten depression and is off medication,  a year after sinking into an ensnaring dark web of lifedraining sadness. Bravely opening up about her battle with depression, while explaining the peaks and troughs that come with the mental health condition, Waititu disclosed that she seriously considered suicide, twice.

“See that smile?” posed the mother of two as she drew attention to a photo she posted to her over 339,000 Instagram followers where she detailed in the caption what helped her get through it. “That smile was covering severe sadness and depression, in fact, the following day I attempted suicide for the second and last time ever! One year later, I’ve beat depression, got off depression medication, fought several silent battles and won, fought off cyberbullying and saw my life change right in front of my eyes as I achieved things I never even imagined would be possible.”

She explained, “A lot of people ask me how I did it but mostly I have no answer as this is a very personal journey. However, looking back to this period, I remember I was driving back from Murang’a and I heard my baby Kai who was only a year few months old say ‘mama’ for the first time. Lexi on the other hand was days to turning 4 years old – this child is an angel I tell you. He saved my life over and over again and the thought of leaving my precious boys allowed me to snap out of my suicidal state- and fight for my two boys and myself even though I felt like my world was coming to an end, weh! Never again.”

Waititu then revealed that seeking treatment actually saved her life. She stated, “It wasn’t easy, some days were dark, some hopeful. I took the healing journey extremely seriously and without shame, I took my medication and saw my psychiatrist religiously and without fail. But guess what? My faith and trust in God, my determination to heal, self-education, a good support system and keeping an open mind accelerated my healing. I never thought that I’d say this but I have seen the other side of healing and it’s beautiful!”

The personality went on in the October 17, 2020 post to offer comfort, recommended being kind to one’s self, and pleaded for access to mental health treatment, safe spaces to talk and development of support structures. “For anyone feeling lost and broken, trust me when I tell you this, better days are always ahead. Just don’t give up on yourself and accept help where it’s offered. Pray, pray pray! God is always listening and He is aware of our pain and in Faith, He always comes through… I hope this encourages someone. Let’s normalize addressing mental health and let’s support and be kind to each other,” she wrote.
