Media personality Betty Kyallo invited former first lady Ida Odinga for the launch of her salon, Flair in Kilimani's Rose Avenue.

In her speech, Betty said,

"I have been dreaming of this day. I cannot believe it is here. I was telling Mama Ida that we left this place at 5:30am this morning we were here organising things for you guys to see this. It has been three months of working on this."

Mama Ida Odinga who is a former first lady was the guest of honour at the launch.

Giving her speech, she said,

"The most amazing thing is that they are all young people thank you for working with."


"Most times people see ladies like Betty and they think they are just for the cameras they don't realise they can also do other things on their own and people mistake them that they don't so things on their own. Betty I'm glad with your own brain, hands and mind you worked out this thing. Girls This can be done. It can be done. God gave us equal brains. God did not give us different gender brains."

In conclusion, Mama Ida advised,

"Keep off drugs. And advise little sisters and brothers tell them no one has ever succeeded for taking drugs."
