Former TV anchor Louis Otieno now claims that he is being victimised and singled-out in the late Careen Chepchumba’s inquest.
In a letter to the DPP, Otieno says he is apprehensive that his rights to equal protection of the law is being compromised.
Through his lawyer Norman Magaya, the now ailing ex-anchor says that he is willing to cooperate with the DPP’s office in order to unravel the truth on who killed Careen.
Otieno says that Senior Principal Magistrate Charles Ondieki singled him out when he ruled that he should produce his fingernails and phone records for investigations in a judgement issued at the Kibera courts two weeks ago.
“Based on the said ruling we note that the learned magistrate interestingly singled out our client for investigations as per the recommendations,” Magaya said.
Otieno further noted that despite the procedural lapses and the conclusion of the investigations, the magistrate directed the DPP to reopen the inquest after investigations are complete.
He argues that the recommendations given by the magistrate to the DPP is contrary to the constitutional principle of the office of the DPP as stipulated in the law.
In an interesting twist, Otieno has told the DPP that he will provide all that is required including his DNA and phone as long Careen’s family are also directed to provide the same samples to the authorities.
” [My client] is willing to cooperate with your office as may be required of him so as to unravel the truth and ensure the ends of justice are met,” Magaya added.
Otieno’s career came to an end when his name came up in the murder of the late Carreen.
Careen was his neighbour and said to be Louis’ lover.
Former KTN presenter Joy Doreen Biira’s decision to embark on a natural hair journey was the best decision, according to a confession she is making.
She has embraced the natural hair for a while. She has added major length to her hair,
Here are the changes she has made to her natural hair routine while pregnant.
I’ve been asked what hair products I use? And if my hair is Natural? How I maintain the mane? Yes my hair is natural (did the big chop in 2014 and several other mini chops before I let it grow again). Before I say what hair products, let me state here when I’m pregnant🤰🏽my hair grows fastest in its natural form – Don’t know if it’s the supplements (pregnacare with omega3 and folic acid), the plaiting to avoid the hair dryer or genes…its volume is healthiest and bouncy during and after pregnancy (Baby is now a little over a month old).
Now to the products and maintenance question; I treat my hair depending on what I think it needs at a given time.
I KEEP IT REAL SIMPLE – I oil my scalp 1-2 times a week with Shea butter from Ghana🇬🇭 or Uganda🇺🇬 (the Scented one as I don’t like the smell of the Shea butter) or scentless coconut oil 🥥 (Made in Kenya🇰🇪). Once a week Or once every two weeks I will part hair and sprinkle avocado oil 🥑 to keep hair moist. I visit the salon once every two weeks to wash, condition (I’m not so much a do-it-at-home Naturalista like the many I admire here I can’t keep up 😊). I do natural hair treatment once a month (using whichever natural hair treatment the salon has at the time as I’m not too particular with with shampoo or conditioner or treatment as long as the pH levels are balanced and there are no sulphates in the ingredients. I plait it when I think it’s starting to thin out (braids, cornrows or a kinky weave) to regain its body. I blow dry hair once or twice a month. I go to the same salon and use the same stylists, they know my routine and understand my hair texture. I plait two knots in the evening , use hair cap and comb them out in the morning, it gives me super curls 👌🏽 Finally I trim ends of hair and layer it once a year. I think that’s pretty much it 😊. How do you maintain your natural hair? .
PS: don’t let your stylist blow dry your hair to a point you can smell it or see it “smoking”. It thins the hair very fast. Also make sure when your hair is washed, shampoo is completely washed out else it breaks when not washed thoroughly well.

Being a celebrity, one has to be on top of fashion trends lest they’re caught unawares by paparazzi. Just like the type of car you drive, your handbag also tells a lot about the kind of person you are and Betty Kyallo is among the women who carry around classy handbags.

When will people ever learn that you cannot take down Lillian Muli. The Citizen TV news anchor is a formidable force to any troll, hater and/or ninja’s biting disses or savage criticisms.
A female fan wrote her an open letter titled ‘Dear Kenyan Female Celebrities Please Stop Using Pregnancies And Babies To Stay Relevant’
IN THE LETTER, THE FAN SAYS, “I PERSONALLY RESPECT MOTHERS WHO DECIDE TO KEEP THEIR PREGNANCY AND BABIES PRIVATE, THAT IS A SACRED PART OF THEIR LIVES. HOWEVER IF SOME FEEL COMPELLED TO SHARE INFORMATION THIS IS OKAY EXCEPT STARTING A WHOLE SHOW LIKE LILIAN MULI CALLED “PREGNANT WITH LILIAN” IS SO IRRELEVANT.
Beside Lillian, Janet Mbugua also has a vlog about her life and it was launched with a bang when she announced that she is expecting baby number two. Also read more here
THE LETTER ADDED, ” TRYING TO STAY RELEVANT BY POSTING PREGNANCY PHOTOS AND BABY PHOTOS IS JUST ANOTHER WAY OF SAYING YOU LACK SUBSTANCE… SO DEAR CELEBRITY MOTHERS IT IS GREAT THAT YOU ARE PREGNANT AND WE HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT EXPERIENCE, BUT SUCH CONTENT IS TIRING, OVERRATED AND DOES NOT NEED THAT MUCH ATTENTION.”
Lillian Muli may or may not have read the post. But in the past she has shown us how much she has paid for a pair of red bottom shoes for her litto one.
Lillian has no apologies for living her life as she sees fit.
The screen siren ordered online for an expensive pair of Christian Louboutin’s designer baby shoes from the ‘Loubibaby’ line. The adorable Mary Jane booties have the designer’s signature red soles — and signature sky-high price tag, costing $250 (Ksh 25000) per pair.
LILLIAN WROTE: “FOR ALL YOU MUMMIES AND DADDIES OUT THERE WHO HAVE BABY GIRLS CHECK OUT THESE #LOUBIBABYSHOES. HOW CUTE AND CLASSY, RED BOTTOMS FOR BABY.”
Lillian shot back at haters saying,
“I see so much beauty in those who wish others well. I however pity those who thrive on poisonous thoughts and slanderous tongues.”
ADDING, “I CAN’T AND DON’T INTEND TO PLEASE EVERYONE BUT FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN SUPPORTIVE AND EVEN CRITICIZED CONSTRUCTIVELY GOD BLESS YOU. I FOCUS ON THE POSITIVES ALWAYS. “EVERY BRICK THEY THREW AT ME I USED TO STAND ON.” IF YOU DON’T KNOW BY NOW I’M A SURVIVOR!”
Betty Kyallo is no joke when it comes to salon business.
From Posh Palace, which has since been closed down to Betty by Flair, the sultry KTN presenter is a smart-indeed, businesswise. Betty Kyallo’s new salon is one of a kind and from the comfy seats, decorations, sound systems, to equipment, it’s a classy one.

“If you have a heart beat there’s still time to achieve your greatest dreams. Never give up. Keep going, hustle hard, keep positive people around you and most importantly Pray. Love and light to you dreamers. Mad respect.”
KTN’s Yvonne Okwara is a great example of hard work pays. The sexy TV siren, who prefers a low life away from the limelight, is giving her counterparts a run for their money.
Yvonne Okwara has created a name for herself in the flooded media industry and just like many, she also has a story to tell.
The 35-year-old lady has revealed that her first job was a waitress and earned sh150.
“FIRST JOB WAS AT WALKER’S RESTAURANT AT REINSURANCE PLAZA. WAITRESS. EARNED 150BOB A DAY!,” OKWARA TWEETED.
Yvonne Okwara’s revelation has left many by surprise and just like they say, life is a journey.
Okwara’s follower by the name Disco Volante responded to her tweet and he wrote:
“THE TRENCHES IN HOSPITALITY CAN BE UNFORGIVING! 150 BOB, HII NAIROBI?!”
The sultry media personality went ahead to explain how she would stay till late to clean up the restaurant.
“I KNOW, RIGHT? RESTAURANT OPENED AT 9AM. WE HAD TO BE IN AT 7AM. CLOSED AT 8PM. STAYED TILL 10PM TO CLEAN UP. ALL FOR 150BOB. BUT I LEARNED A LOT. TO RESPECT WAIT STAFF AND DEALING WITH PEOPLE! SMILE GOES A LONG WAY. EARNED MORE IN TIPS THIS WAY!”
Responding to another follower, Yvonne Okwara says that Hard work and humility is key
“MUNGU NI MKUBWA. HARD WORK. HUMILITY. PASSION. PLUS USING EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN IS WHAT IS KEY. THERE IS A LESSON IN EVERYTHING.”
The senior KTN news presenter is married and has in the past interviews talked about her marriage to an older man and ailing brother.
Former KTN journalist John Allan Namu left many talking for days after he married a woman slightly older than him. The two met at KTN for the second time where John Allan Namu was an intern and Makena an editor.
John Allan Namu revealed that in 2008, that’s when things became serious and in 2010, they tied the knot in a colorful wedding ceremony. Eight years down the line, the power couple whose parents were family friends before Makena’s parents passed away is happily married with four children.
In a recent media interview, Namu and Sheena spoke about their love story and it’s an interesting one.
They spoke about their age difference and John Allan Namu:
“I don’t feel the age difference. Sometimes I feel like I’m the older one. Age difference has never been a factor.”
Age is just a number and Makena explained that:
“Age difference is really not something that we think about. We only remember when filling forms or asked about our age. we think more of the same.”
The investigative journalist revealed that he was in a relationship, but it wasn’t working out and when he met Sheena, she redefined love to him.
“I was in a long distance that wasn’t working quite well as I wanted it to. Sheena and I always had a good time together and I missed that in my previous relationship.,” he said.
“I usually don’t like talking about my relationship with my ex-girlfriend. That’s a slippery slope and I don’t want to come off as if I’m blaming my ex for the state of our relationship but it was what it was.”
“Makena was always supportive of me and my work that’s why I fell in love with her.”
A few months after dating, Makena got pregnant and John Allan Namu had no other choice but disclose the information to his family and ex-girlfriend as well.
“When I got pregnant, THAT PERIOD was a bit tough because we weren’t handling it well. There was the girlfriend and me. I didn’t want to be seen as an orphan hoping all over the place. There was uncertainty,” Makena narrated.
“At the time she got prehgnant. I Had to come clean with my girlfriend and family and it was very tough but was also cathatic and that’s when I knew who my real friends were. It sought of shook me and solidified me. the Circle of people who I have around me today, probably by and large are the people who told me I messed up but this is the way to go and they are our friends today,” explained John Allan Namu.
John Allan and Nyali MP Mohammed Ali were forced to go into exile for one month that year and while abroad, he shopped for his baby’s stuff and upon coming back, he decided to settle down with her.
“I told Makena I’m willing to work things out and be part of our child’s life. We went for an ultra sound at 20 weeks and when i was told we were having a boy i was really excited. This was one of the points in our relationship that really cemented who we are today.”
Tero Mdee aka Nancy Namtero Hebron is back in ?Kenya, years after silently exiting her TV job.
Tero, in an interview on KissFM, opened up about rumors that she hooked up with her pastor husband while he was in another relationship, and allegations on strained family relations after she married the man.
She dismissed those rumors she broke up his relationship, noting that,’ There was so much drama surrounding my dating him. Yes, he was with someone else when we hooked up, but their relationship was ended.’, she adds.
She continued to defend dating him at the time saying,’ She left him because he was going through a difficult financial issue and you know how some people marry for money? Yeah, she went through a rough patch and she left him and hooked up with someone else.’
He was my brothers friend and I guess it was God’s plan .
She also opens up about a family rift because they were opposed to her relationship with him.
“The reason they were upset is because I didn’t inform them in time, I didn’t think I needed their consent on whom to date. Once you put your foot down there’s nothing they can do. The fact that I had not involved them during my transition to Christianity brought problems, but when I explained they were good.”
Joy Doreen Biira is set to welcome baby number two pretty soon. She already has a son, Ty.
In a past interview with True Love she gushed about baby number two.
“I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT IT’S ACTUALLY HAPPENING. I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TWO BABIES AND I GUESS THIS IS GOD’S ANSWER TO IT. THOUGH I REMEMBER HOW BAD MY LABOUR PAINS WERE AND THAT’S THE ANXIOUS BIT,” JOY DOREEN SAID.
Joy Doreen reminisces on when she met her hubby, saying that it was through a mutual friend at a party. Due to their busy work schedules they did not manage to really meet and bond, but in 2013 they went on vacation to Uganda together.
Shortly there after they moved in together and a year later they welcomed their son Ty into the world.
She says he proposed much much later when their son was three months old.
“IT WAS IN MARCH 2015, AT HEMINGWAY’S IN NAIROBI. IT WAS ON HIS BIRTHDAY AND OUR SON WAS JUST THREE MONTHS OLD, SO I THOUGHT WE COULD HAVE DINNER, JUST THE TWO OF US. AND BANG, HE’D MADE ARRANGEMENTS WITH THE TEAM THERE TO DO THE NEEDFUL. AFTER DINNER, HE WENT DOWN ON ONE KNEE AND PROPOSED,” SHE TOLD TRUE LOVE.
Joy Doreen shared a beautiful video of her son kicking…
Here are photos of Joy Doreen dressing her baby bump in a stylish manner.
Before calling it quits at KTN, Cynthia Nyamai was and still is regarded as among the top news anchors the country has ever produced. Her composure, intelligence and her jounalistic skills were unrivalled.
The beautiful businesswoman quit the Kenyan media industry to focus on her own career, starting her own PR firm and so far, it has taken her to great places.
Though many admire her success, a majority of them would never understand the struggles she had to put up with immediately after she quit KTN.
On her Instagram post, Nyamai narrates how she sold her only car back in 2012 for capital in her quest to start her own public relations firm. This meant that she would walk on a daily basis to her offices something she was not used to.
In her post, Nyamai attached a photo of her in a private jet for the very first time in her life moments after signing a lucrative deal in Nigeria.
Little did she know it was the beginning of many more rides.
After all the struggles she went through in years of trying to realize her dream, she signs off by encouraging budding entrepreneurs that indeed ‘Entrepreneurship is an interesting adventure’.
Check her post below.
2014, my first time on a private jet. 2years earlier I had sold my car for capital to start my PR firm and I would walk to my office. Fast forward I’m smiling in this photo because I had just signed a contract in Nigeria that catapulted my career and my client let me use his private jet. Entrepreneurship is an interesting adventure. #TBT#BringingAfricaTogetherThroughTrade
Dennis Okari, the estranged husband of Betty Kyallo, is in currently in Asia and just like they say when you go to Rome, do what the Romans do. The multi-talented media personality visited the Wailing Wall to speak to his Maker.
The Wailing Wall is an ancient limestone wall in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is considered holy due to its connection to the Temple Mount. Because of the Temple Mount entry restrictions, the Wall is the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray, though it is not the holiest site in the Jewish faith, which lies behind it.
Okari posted a photo of him praying and captioned;
“Just presented my petition before God. #wailingwall #israel #israeltour #holyland”
Many are speculating that Dennis Okari visited the place to ask God to give him a God-fearing and great wife after parting ways with sexy screen siren Betty Kyallo barely six months into marriage, but only the father of one knows what he prayed for.
Okari was also in Turkey for war journalism training a few days ago, and he revealed that it was one of the toughest trainings he has undergone.
“36 hours of no sleep and rest with Özel Harekât, Turkish Special Forces survival training in war journalism. It’s the toughest test of endurance in the world,” he wrote accompanied by the photo below.
Check out reactions from Kenyans after Dennis Okari posted a photo at the Wailing Wall

Timothy Otieno’s eloquence and his mastery of the Queen’s language has enabled him to gain a huge fan base across the East Africa region.
The young reporter always leave us glued to the screen just to watch him update us on the current affairs. The multi-talented Otieno, is without a doubt among the most influential and inspirational media personality to the younger generation.
Timothy Otieno was lucky to cover the just concluded 2017 Kenya general election for the first time ever after graduating in 2015 and he was part of the squad that worked a,, round the clock to give Kenyans credible news during the August 8th election.
“Will be covering my 1st election as a reporter and I’ve talked to God; He’s told me I’m ready!!! ‘ Otieno tweeted.

Well, below are photos of Timothy Otieno, go through;
Former KTN presenter, Nancy Hebron popularly known as Tero Mdee has made her comeback after five years of disappearance after getting married to a pastor in Tanzania.
The former Str8 up show presenger, who is Vanessa Mdee’s sister has released her first gospel song Taa ya miguu yangu which talks about how God has stood by her and how He saved her from the evil deeds of the world.
She changed her name to Nancy Hebron after marriage. She was one of the most fashionable people I knew back then and her style was always splendid in Kenya.
Tero quit her job in 2012 and went back to Tanzania where she got married without her family consent. She ditched her flashy lifestyle and married pastor Hebron Kisamo before becoming a pastor herself.
Kenyan boy band Sauti Sol are in Berlin where they are set to perform tonight. During their stay there, they caught up with former KTN news anchor Edith Kimani.
Well, it seems Chimano could not help but show the world how he feels about Edith Kimani as he was spotted romantically planting a kiss on the cheeks of the beauty, as she smiled and ran with the flow.
The two enjoyed the beautiful moment together as other Sauti Sol members watched. Is there something the Internet needs to know about these two?
But then, we’ve seen Chimano have friendly times with many ladies, let’s just say he enjoys having good times with lasses.
Betty Kyallo, just like every human, has had friends or colleagues who have given all sorts of advice. But the latest one she has revealed is in regards to her voice.
According to SDE, Betty stated that she was advised to take whisky and smoke so as to have a good voice for TV. This sounds absurd, but she also added that she was also told to take yoghurt. Confusing right?
She said, “I was told that whisky would make my voice husky and that smoking would make it deeper. But of course these were never an option for me. James Karani (former KTN anchor) convinced me to take yoghurt before going on air to make my voice softer. I do not know if he was being serious or playful because I ended with my mouth being full of saliva. I had to pause and swallow in between sentences while reading news.”
Betty has also been rumoured for the longest time to be dating a top government official and she finally decided to clear the air about it in an exclusive interview with True Love Magazine.
On her relationship with Hassan, she told the magazine, “It wasn’t until May (2016) that I became close to Hassan. He was going through the same thing, a separation, and we connected on that level. We tried to have something and it gave me comfort because we understood where we were with each other. He was easy to talk to, hang out and have fun with.”
She continued, “But after a few months I decided that this was not what I wanted for myself. We had a culture clash and a religious clash. I also wanted to be a strong woman; I wanted to make something of myself and my daughter. I wanted to start a business because I am young and energetic. But he wanted someone who was chilled; there was conversation of me quitting my career and just staying at home. We did not see eye to eye on this. It was a painful discovery, and I knew it was going to hurt once again, but I had to walk. I left with what was mine and gave him what was his and we parted ways peacefully in December 2016.”
A casual labourer identified as Robert Kihara has tasted freedom after well wishers and former KTN reporter Saddique Shaban bailed him out.
The middle aged man became a visitor of the State after being handed a two month jail term by an Eldama Ravine court for stealing a piece of cabbage worth Kes 40.
It is said he stole the cabbage from a garden owned by the Mercy Mission Hospital in the Catholic Diocese of Nakuru where his brother Father Francis Mugo serves as a priest, and was arrested as he was leaving the gate.
Father Francis defended his action saying he had Kihara put behind bars as a way of rehabilitating him due to his ‘bad manners’.
Kenyans upset at what they termed an ‘injustice’ came together to bail him out , after news of his arrest went viral on social media.
Father Francis, who was in the court on Tuesday when well-wishers freed his brother, fled through the fence of Eldama Ravine court after realizing that a crowd had gathered and the situation could be dangerous.
While speaking to the media after his release Kihara said that although he had forgiven his brother, he was not ready to go back to live in the church compound. Saddique Shaban and other well wishers present bought him new household items for him to start a new life.
Robert says that this is the first time he has been involved in such crimes.
