Ken Mijungu has called out Betty Kyallo, Dennis Okari’s ex-wife barely a day after she took to social media to narrate how her daughter battled with a rare disease.
As another year once again comes to an end I can’t help but reflect and look back as this year has been a special one; difficult and extremely challenging to me and my family. It took a lot of convincing for me to share what I am about to share due to its sensitivity and privacy in nature, however I feel I won’t have done my duty to thank God for not abandoning us If I decide to be silent about it. If at the end of this message I will give heart to someone going through the same challenge, anxiety, fear and Loneliness I’ll sleep better. Early this year my sweet lovely daughter Ivanna was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease. It was marked by a sudden widespread attack of inflammation in the Brain and spinal cord called ADEM (acute disseminated encephalomyelitis)…t she had to be taken to ICU and put on life suppport for a whole month,’ Betty wrote in part.
After almost 4 months of hospitalization starting from February to Mid June including one month in ICU My daughter Ivanna celebrated her birthday at home on June 22nd. She restarted school in September this year doing so well. She has fully recovered her mobility, vocal ability and all other cognitive abilities that she lost. She’s even bolder, more confident, talks too much, more intelligent and it’s nothing short of a miracle. God has truly come through for me and my family in big way. That’s why I couldn’t fail to Glorify Him through this post. I saw my blessing and miracle.
‘You don’t need to thank Okari and Ivanna’s grandparents but at least be honest,’ Ken Mijungu tells Betty Kyallo
Betty Kyallo only thanked the nurses, doctors, her family, new man, friends, and colleagues for standing with her during the difficult period. She didn’t mention the baby’s father, Dennis Okari.
I want to both give thanks to God and the people who’ve been there for me and in the process hopefully encourage someone going through the same or worse time, not to give up and despair as God always comes through and day by day you’ll get through whatever you’re going through. Apart from the doctors, both ward and ICU, the nurses especially Nurse Judy who stood by Ivanna and worked so hard to give us hope and good treatment, the hospital support staff such as the security guards, the valet parking attendants, the admin staff, the catering staff who ensured we ate even when we forgot to! I have nothing but eternal gratitude and pray for all of you that God shows you the same kindness you’ve shown us. To my family and partner, I can never say thank you enough because you shielded me, made me laugh, supported me and even made sure I never missed a bulletin or Upclose shoot throughout. You always reminded me to smile on air and keep my energy up when shooting Upclose even after waking up from hospital. Baby, you dropped me to work and picked me every working day and even made crucial decisions for Ivanna even when I was too weak to. Thank you Mum Mercy, Gloria for always being at Ivanna’s side, singing to her Moanas songs and talking to her when she was in a coma. Brian for your complex articles trying to help me understand what ADEM was. To all my friends who never got tired even when I didn’t answer your calls but kept coming, to all my friends that gave me financial support, to all friends who cried with me. Thank you. To Ivannas occupational therapists who made it their own goal to see she talks and walks, David thank you. The teachers Njenga and Tony I appreciate the work you do for Ivanna.My nannies who loved her as if she were your daughter thank you. My Flair By Betty team for always praying for me. Thank you. My boss Peter, K24 family that understood my battle and always called to check in and supported me to the very end. Thank you.
This did not go well with Ken Mijungu, Okari’s friend, who shared a screenshot of the chats between him and Betty during the time when her daughter was sick.
He told the K24 sexy siren to be honest and tell her fans who was there for her daughter when she was hospitalised for four months.
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 know it’s a huge glass cubicle. You don’t need to thank Okari and Ivanna’s grand parents 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.
