Dennis Okari reacts after quack doctor Mugo wa Wairimu jailed for 11 years

Most times when I write about Dennis Okari, I normally do so while also mentioning his more famous wife, Betty Kyallo.

But this story is different as one can infer from the title that led you here. The NTV Investigative reporter and news anchor Dennis Okari has opened up after the quack doctor he exposed in 2018, Mugo wa Wairimu was sentenced to 11 years in jail.

In a post seen by Classic105, Okari who himself is a devout Christian had revealed that he had investigated the fake doctor for about 3 months, and painfully watched videos of the heinous acts he did to the women who visited his clinic for treatment.

Okari stated that the penalty that Mugo had received, gave left him with a sense of satisfaction.

“I investigated this quack doctor Mugo wa Wairimu for nearly 3 months in 2018. After painfully watching his deranged activities and what he did to women, finally justice is served. 11 years in prison/ pay fine of Sh1.4M #QuackClinic @ntvkenya,” said Dennis Okari.

Love magic! Secret love formula between Dennis Okari and new bae

Dennis Okari popped the question on Saturday asking Joy Naomi if she would love to spend the rest of her life with him.

Pundits are now drawing comparisons between his first engagement to Betty Kyallo and this recent engagement.

Here are some of the pointers.

The second proposal was top secret not to be publicised.
Okari proposed to Joy Naomi in a surprise dinner where only family and very close friends were invited.

His first proposal to TV queen Betty Kyallo was carried out during a holiday in Mombasa.

According to sources,

“Dennis took her to Mombasa. They went to south coast’s Swahili Beach Hotel. He informed everyone about it and for two days tourists were just staring at Betty. He proposed at the poolside as a Maasai moran accompanied by two white twin girls carried the plate of roses surrounding the ring. It was mind blowing,” said our source.

Later the media reports indicate that the couple did gush about their engagement.

“I will not deny nor confirm this story but I will let you know soon,” Betty told a section of the media..

Dennis on the other hand hinted the possibility of the wedding but declined to give more details.

“We are still planning and we will let you know as soon as all is ready,” he said.

The traditional wedding went swimmingly without any drama

Okari’s traditional wedding in ukambani – Joy Naomi’s parents home – is said to have gone smoothly. No hitches at all.

That was not the case with Betty’s ruracio.

“When we started preparations for the traditional wedding, the cracks started to show. A week and a half to the ceremony, certain things about me were said by my partner’s family, and my family found out. They weren’t happy,” Betty narrated to True Love.

Adding, “I needed to find out what time their entourage would arrive. But he did not pick up my call. I tired calling him again after an hour and once again it went unanswered.”

Betty’s parents tried to contact Okari which saw their calls go unanswered too.

“At 3pm, when we tried to call again, all their phones were off. By the time the sun was going down, it was obvious that I had been stood up on my traditional wedding.”

Radio presenter’s son talks about struggle to finish school

All this time, Betty’s mother had invited almost 250 friends from her chama, they had used lots of money to prepare for the traditional wedding.

“My dad wanted to go and tell everyone what was happening, but i told him that i would go. I started by thanking them for coming and then i told them that things did not work out. I would sense that nobody understood what I was talking about, but I let them know that I was grateful to have them home since we had not connected for a long time.”

Parents love the new fiance

Going by the attendance at the engagement dinner, both Okari and Joy Naomi’s family seem to get along.

Again, this was the missing ingredient in Betty’s love life with Okari.

Everybody in her family wanted her to break up with Okari after what he had put her through. Three years down the line, pregnant Betty Kyallo would then go back to Okari as she talked to him behind her family’s back.

The two agreed that when their daughter turned one year, they would do a second traditional wedding even though Betty felt that she was not being protected by Okari when it came to his family’s side.

This time round, the traditional wedding was attended by only ten people. Betty explained,

“We then decided that when Ivanna turned one, we would have the wedding. The second traditional wedding leading up to this day was attended by only 10 people. My mum and dad were the only ones present from my from of the family. But ultimately, it was not the marriage ceremony I had dreamed of.”

The bride-to-be is sure of her decision

Joy Naomi was sure of her answer to Okari when she said, “Yes!” and hugged him tightly as the room burst out in cheers and ululation. The engagement dinner saw Okari get vulnerable and ask Joy:

“The answer that I will get today will be etched in my memories for as long as I live.
I will love you with all the wisdom that God will give me and not just to love you but also to love Him as well and to serve His people.”

Mystery of man accused of killing wife, ‘We don’t know how he was suddenly got rich!’

As for Betty, she had doubts from day one. She didn’t want the wedding nor the marriage but because of the “power couple” image they had created for the public, she agreed.

Betty said in a past interview:

“I felt it was still very premature and we had no story to tell. I was just learning the ropes and the idea of getting married was also just settling in. So I wasn’t sure if our story would have depth. You can imagine being engaged at 23, what do you know? But when you are in love, you easily get influenced by what your partner thinks and feels. And so Dennis managed to convince me to take the opportunity.”

We wish the happy couple the best in their impending nuptials.

‘We stood with you in your lowest time, stand with us’ Kenyans tell Uhuru over covid funds expose

On the Monday morning conversation, the topic was on the minds of many Kenyans after watching NTV expose on the misuse of Covid-19 funds.

The investigative piece by Dennis Okari showed how some Kenyans are making money from covid 19, while the disease continues to ravage the country. The profiteering from KEMSA and the Ministry of Health is incredible to say the least.

Maina called on Kenyans to speak openly to Uhuru Kenyatta.

We are addressing one person and one person alone.

Talk to Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta. After what we saw on Tv yesterday you know as I watched it, and thank you Dennis Okari and the entire TV crew, the one thing that I kept thinking about was for how long are we going to keep listening to nonsense and nothing is done about it. There you are struggling complying with the law, paying the taxes, then there are people who walked into KEMSA and walked out with grossly inflated tenders? For how long? We are going to make Uhuru Kenyatta act, we have to, we can’t go on like this, we lose a third of our GDP to corruption, do you know what a trillion shillings is? What the hell, oh he’s gonna listen whether he acts or not that is his decision, but we shall make it known, the hashtag is Dear MR President, and just give him a message,

These messages will get to him, what he chooses to ignore or acts upon what you are feeling that is his choice now, but talk to him we must. #DearMrPresident.

I felt so defiled it was crazy what I watched on NTV. Now let’s talk to the President, whether he chooses to act or not that’s his decision.

Caller: I’m talking to the one who took covid funds, your kids will pay, its painful, people are not going to work, instead of you helping you are eating Kenyans money, huyo mtu he doesn’t have a heart, Maina what is happening? I’m so mad right now

Caller: Dear MR President the big fishes are outside there stealing and nothing is being done, nothing is happening just because the big ones have not humbled your self, you are going to be responsible

Money
Money

Caller: It’s very sad that some of these things happen in our country sometimes you wonder where the leadership is. They are out of touch with what we are going through. Choices do have consequences.

Caller: Dear President, we are really tired, punda imechoka na hii serikali yako ya ufisadi, people are suffering my friend, and what is going on at KEMSA, people should not tell you they don’t know where the funds went, everyone has to be held accountable and the buck stops with you

Okari shows off cooking skills as he prepares delicious meal for wife

The advent of feminism the past half a century has changed the way the genders deal with each. Old gender roles have been turned on their heads with women and men doing things that were only reserved for one of the genders.

One of the roles that was (and still is in some cultures) reserved for women was doing the housework-which included keeping the home clean and cooking the meals for the family.

But that role is not exclusively being done by women anymore, as the Kenyan context shows. Our very own Dennis Okari is a man who has wholeheartedly embraced these changing roles and has jumped feet first into traditionally feminine roles with fervor.

Okari recently took to Instagram to show his awesome cooking skills to the joy of all of his fans and followers. The NTV presenter didn’t even stop there as he also shared photos of the meal he had prepared and the recipe.

Okari explained that he had come home late from work and he decided to help her in the kitchen cooking a sumptuous meal of pan-fried fish Tandoori.

I want a chunky and divorced man – Betty Kyallo discloses ideal husband

If one was to look at Betty Kyallo’s life in the month of October 2015, it would look like it had been penned by the great Walt Disney himself.

This unknown girl had made it in this cold and harsh world-making it first as a media darling on KTN, to dating and getting married to one of the most eligible men ion Kenya in Dennis Okari.

Her life story seemed to be pitch-perfect at that time with everything going well for her. The modern trope having it all springs to mind.

But things were not as great as they seemed on the surface as 6 months after their glorious grand wedding the couple separated ignominiously with a daughter the result of the short marriage.

Some governor who shall remain unnamed was named as a possible cause of the split. Sine then Okari has moved on and got married last year in another grand wedding while Betty has been linked to various men who she keeps behind a veil.

But it seems that Betty’s appetite for grand weddings is done and she has revealed that her next marriage will be a two-people affair; just her and her man.

Miss Kyallo revealed this to in an up-close interview with Billy Miya,

“Especially now I don’t want a big wedding. Just me and him at the AG’s office, we have our rice at the next restaurant, got home and start life. Honeymoon is fine but this thing of feeding 5,000 people at your wedding, is crazy. When things go wrong in your marriage, you will look for this 5,000 people and they will be nowhere to be seen.”

For Betty, there was no sense in struggling with a failed marriage when you clearly can tell it shall never see the light of day.

“You don’t need to put a brave face in public but behind closed doors, you two are not okay. I chose to be happy and I’m even happy for him (Okari).

She added,

“The thing about marriage, at that time I was young, I didn’t want marriage as such and I didn’t see its meaning. But right now, I have grown as a woman, I understand myself and I now know what I want. I’m ready to mend my ways so that I also get my ring. But now I’m not in a hurry, whoever God will send my way is who I will settle with.”

And who might that ideal man be?

“I want a chunky man and I feel like for a man who is divorced, we can understand each other better. People have been chasing me but right now I am not in the mood and I just want to love myself.”

Mercy Kyallo explains why she missed Betty’s salon relaunch and her relationship with Okari

Betty Kyallo’s younger sister, Mercy Kyallo might be much less popular than her but that doesn’t mean that her movements aren’t closely monitored.

Mercy, who not only closely resembles her older sister, also has a stubborn and fierce personality to her that compliments Betty’s calm and bubbly demeanor.

The two are as thick as thieves and know intimate details about each other that I think would make some blush. But that isn’t the point of all my blathering.

What is? Why wasn’t the Yallo Leather CEO at her niece Ivanna’s birthday or the re-launch of Betty’s star-studded salon launch? That is something that keen observers noted and wondered whether the sisters were beefing?

Don’t go chasing marriage! Mercy Kyallo tells trolls hounding her

During a recent interview with Massawe Jappani, Mercy came clean saying that support was given in various ways that the public might not be privy to

I was not able to come. But at the same time, support is given and support is shown in so many different ways especially in the family dynamic. I know our lives are very public and there is so much that goes on away from the public eye and people never know.

As regards the massive war between her and Dennis Okari and his friend Ken Mijungu, Mercy said that it had been some time since she talked to him but clarifying that everything has since settled.

“Well, I haven’t spoken to him in such a long time. But there is no bad blood. I’m happy to see him in our lives and the life of his child and it is obviously so encouraging and beautiful.”

First photos together in years! Okari and Betty Kyallo enjoy daughter Ivanna’s birthday

Yesterday was an odd coincidence for Dennis Okari. The Nation TV anchor spent Father’s Day on the same day he celebrated his daughter, Ivanna’s 6th birthday.

In images shared on Betty’s Instagram page, one could see the former couple serenade their daughter Ivanna as other guests looked on.

The change in relations between Betty and Dennis is quite fascinating considering the cold war that was waged between the two earlier this between their proxies.

Betty’s sister Mercy and Okari’s friend Ken Mijungu went at it on social media after Betty failed to thank Okari after her daughter left the hospital after a long stay.

‘I prefer dating a divorced man,’ Betty Kyallo reveals marriage plans

Media personality Betty Kyallo has described the type of a man she is looking to get married to and start a family with.

Speaking on her YouTube channel, Betty says she prefers getting attached to a divorcee.

You all remember that she has gone through divorce and that is the very reason she wants to marry one.

According to Betty Kyallo, after her divorce with ex-husband Dennis Okari, marriage was a no for her but it’s something she has been thinking about. She is considering getting married again and get another baby

She started the conversation saying all the hustles she is doing are for her daughter.

“For all people who say that we have sponsors, broo we hustle hard. I am out here hustling for Ivanna. I dont think am out here hustling for myself, coz me nimekula life and that is what we are here for, we go through life and then at the end of the day, is about our kids. Na nataka kengine so if there are potential bachelors,” she said.

Betty Kyallo smiling

Betty added;

“I am not sure if I actually would want a divorced guy, a single man or a widower. I am always pulling on that direction of a divorced guy because I think tunaelewana. Because I have been through it. I feel like when you have someone divorced is almost like they know when things go wrong and so they try and avoid them. But I know there are nice guys as well. But tutaona tukiendelea,” she said.

My biggest mistake was getting married too young – Betty Kyallo reveals

She then paused a question to other divorced mums asking who they would rather go for.

“A widower would try to replace you with their wife. A new person, will have so much expectations, nataka unipikie, sahii nimetoka kwa nyumba, I will be late back. And a day like on a Friday, will be working upto 10:00 pm, what time will I cook? I think a divorced guy, tukielewana we will be like usinichezee. You are a guy what do you think?

Tunatafta so guys come leteni applications,” she concluded.

Betty Kyallo smiling

Previously, Betty has always pointed out that she knows the things that went wrong in her previous marriage and she knows what she needs to look for in a partner.

“For a long time, I didn’t want to get married after the divorce, but I think I know what went wrong and I know I can be better. I know what I need to look for in somebody. So, I’m starting to warm up to the idea of marriage because for me it was a no. But for now, I find myself thinking okay, inaweza,” she said.

Adding that she would like to have more children because she wants her daughter Ivanna to have siblings.

“I want more kids because if I don’t give Ivanna another brother or sister atakuwa like yeah mommy talk to my hand because my ears ain’t listening.”

My biggest mistake was getting married too young – Betty Kyallo reveals

Betty Kyallo is one of the most popular celebrities we have in Kenya. The two reasons I can think of for that are her high-flying career and her personal life that has kept tongues wagging since she entered the spotlight.

Betty, who is rarely ever in a sad or down mood, has a persona that draws Kenyans to her – something that contributes to their desire to learn a lot about her life and the life lessons she has learned as a result.

Betty Kyallo smiling

Yesterday, the K24 anchor who has been offering anecdotes about her life, dished out more information that showed the self-reflection that she must have done about her life.

She responded by saying it was getting married at a young age. “I think it was getting married a bit young. I was 26 and I think I hadn’t seen my full potential, I hadn’t lived life, I hadn’t explored life by myself and there is no issue with that.”

“It wasn’t a mistake, mistake but if I was to redo that part of my life, probably, I would have waited a bit. I should have chilled, I should have waited,” she added.

Betty Kyallo in green

Betty, however, decided to allay any fears that because hers didn’t work out did not mean others couldn’t.

“These are things for me. If you want to get married at 26, I mean, do you. I think now I’m more mature, I am more in touch with myself and now it’s easy to let in somebody because I have understood who I am,” she continued.

Al Shabaab had planted a bomb for us! Dennis Okari reveals about Somalia visit

You are the most amazing woman of God – Dennis Okari tells wife

Dennis narrated how a journey to Somalia hunting for a story could have been his last, saying that something seemed amiss the moment they arrived for their interview but as he explains, the soldiers tried to downplay it.

“We went to Somalia Jubaland and we were going to interview the president at statehouse and before leaving camp, we signed some documents and I could tell there was something they weren’t telling me. I knew the soldiers are trained to behave a certain way and I could tell they are trying to be calm but there was something wrong. After the interview, they drove us to an open field,” he explained.

According to Okari, the tension was as a result of a bomb being planted by the Al-Shabaab after being informed of their visit. Luckily, they evaded it and got back safely.

“It was actually a bomb. The previous day I was taking the town shots in one of the roads and they gave me 10 seconds to do that and I think the Al-Shabaab had seen us or somebody told them there were journalists around and because we were going to use the same road to whatever we are doing, they planted it early in the morning. What the military did, they were trying to go through the same route to make sure everything is okay. I was very very scared,” he said.

‘No negative energy’ Betty Kyallo shades haters after Dennis Okari, Ken Mijungu drama

Betty Kyallo seems to have taken shots at social media users after she and her baby daddy Dennis Okari trended on twitter after they invited people inside their personal lives.

She shared a video of DJ Khaled on social media and wrote “Mumesikia? 🔊 Msiniletee negative energy hapa na ma-expert opinion 😂😂😂. Use it yourself 😂😂 I do what I want.”

It started when Betty took to social media to thank all who were there for her when her baby Ivanna was admitted to ICU for 4 months.

Betty thanked the doctors, friends and family but it didn’t go well with Okari’s best friend Ken Mijungu who shared screenshots of a conversation between him and Betty.

“I was crushed!” Betty Kyallo opens up about daughter’s illness

“Okari only came to work when he could and our boss understood for all those months. To deliberately paint him as irresponsible is immoral my friend. You don’t have to correct the impression you have created because the Somali guy is by your side but at-least be honest. We were friends before and one day we shall be friends again. Even though the relationship did not work Ivanna remains part of us and we thank God she is ok. As a friend, I followed up the progress of Ivanna occasionally texting Betty and sneaking in at the ward to see her. Anyone who has been to the ICU knows it’s a huge glass cubicle. You don’t need to thank Okari and Ivanna’s grandparents who visited and prayed with her but at least be honest about it. Ivanna opened her eyes on the 9th of April and we thank God for the miracle.”

Mijungu’s revelation also didn’t go well with Mercy Kyallo, Betty’s sister who responded with a long message;

“This is disappointing, I would urge for all intended purposes everyone attacking, bullying and with no substance coming at my sister Betty to first read and digest what it is that she has posted on her platform. The message that has been lost. That as we wrap up last year & reflect upon it, she chose to give thanks to God and appreciated her tests & accomplishments. 
Ken, you cannot force a thank you, Maybe that is why the old Swahili Saying “ Tenda Wema nenda Zako” You wrote her a disrespectful message asking her why she hasn’t thanked Dennis & you in her post, really? Looks like you are still seriously “keeping up” 
Dennis, I could see your handwriting everywhere, Last time we met, you took over my night shift & offered to sleep over with the baby. We thought to ourselves as a family that – you are a stranger – you & Naomi were both strangers to us but it was your right as a father, a kind gesture & we respected that. But after that you left, not a phone call or a message, yes you gave your contribution to our 9m+ ( yes correction 9m+) bill but never turned back to know if & how we left hospital. We were in hospital for 4months, you came around for 4 weeks then disappeared. 
Ken, It is distasteful that you would take the responsibility to lay public our hospital bill & allude that you (& team) contributed the heavier chunk, which nothing is further from the truth. Do you even know about after-care that is still ongoing?,
we had a home nurse & had a physiotherapist vist everyday (ksh 3000) per day. 
You found us at the ICU having gone through the toughest
– Dennis you had not seen your daughter’s face in years. You left us at the ward, before she could even regain her cognitive abilities never to be seen & heard from again. If you would like to talk about it do it on your platform. Respectfully. 
How dare you CALL THE POLICE , Saying Betty has threatened you TWO MEN. 
after you wrote her such a disrespectful message. Wow. “

He seemed quite uneasy and busy on the phone as he talked to the hotels management crew.
Soon after he went straight to the area reserved for the big moment which was located next to the coffee bar, where everything was set. From the ambience to the well placed table napkins, and the waiters standing strategically, the atmosphere was heavy with expectation.
At exactly 9:35 PM, Dennis with some few friends stood at the entrance of the hotel, and shortly after celebrations filled the place as the lady walked in with some friends.

There was no particular dress code colour as everyone was in their own.
Dennis went ahead to pop the question.
“I can’t wait to do life with you, and I can’t wait to start the journey if only I get the answer that I am expecting. So before all these lovely people, family, friends and our parents here.
This ring is just a symbol of my commitments to the covenant that we are going to make in one of these fine days.
So I want to ask you, Naomi Joy, with everything that I have and everything that I am will you marry me?”
