Betty Mutei Kyallo, the Kamba belle everyone seems to be obsessed with. If she’s not radiating her beauty on our television screens with her choleric melancholic personality, she’s probably in her high end salon catering to her endless clients who support her hustle. A lot can be said about the beauty from her entrepreneurial skills to charitable works but just like other celebrities, her negatives outweigh the positive. There seems to be a new story out every other time about the popular news anchor Betty Kyallo.
Her ex beau got hitched again not too long ago and instead of people being happy for him, a couple of haters had to run to Bettys page to “update” her about the latest couple in town , something which is uncalled for and a sign of just how low some people can stoop. In a bid to sell a good story, former colleague Steve Muendo ran with an old interview that Betty had done last year in order to stay relevant. As predicted, Betty was not too pleased with the move and called him out. The story was manipulated and made as though it was a recent interview.
‘What a shame Pulse Magazine. You used an interview I did 7 months ago just to make a story relevant now. How unprofessional and uncouth. Steve Muendo we did an interview August last year, but in this article you deliberately decided to make it sound like we did the interview recently which is misleading and a lie, Even fabricated lies about what I said in the last one week just to make a connection to unrelated event. What a shame for a publication like yours.’
The story that was published recently was a slap to Bettys face given she used to work at KTN before branching out to K24 where she is currently practicing. As journalists sometimes one can get a little bit desperate to run a story without verifying it and that is why other publications picked it up. Goes to show just how fast “fake news” as Donald Trump popularly calls it, travels.
From her tone, Betty expressed her disappointment in who she thought was a friend.
“Desperate to sell copies by using my name. Some of the pictures you used were from a recent event I attended, you referred to a trip and supposed relationship that I’ve never discussed with you. I just want to tell the public that I didn’t comment recently on any of the things in this article and that the writer Steve whom I actually considered a friend fabricated a lot of this article. The last time I spoke to the writer on a professional level was in August 2018 during a previous recorded interview but he’s used that to fabricate a story relevant for now. Just unfortunate and disappointing!”
At the end of the day, there is a thin line between being ethical, saving a friendship and business, as a journalist, which one are you on?
