Drama between the Kyallo sisters and Dennis Okari continues.
Mercy Kyallo, Betty’s younger sister has come out to share her side of the story and she didn’t spare Okari and his pal Ken Mijungu.
‘You don’t need to thank Okari and Ivanna’s grandparents but at least be honest,’ Ken Mijungu tells Betty Kyallo
In a lengthy post she shared on social media, Mercy expressed her disappointment, terming Mijungu’s sentiments as disrespectful and shameful.
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”’ she wrote in part.
Mercy narrated how Okari and his wife Naomi showed up at the hospital to see his daughter Ivanna but the family wasn’t comfortable.
They felt like they were strangers. She also revealed that the bill was over Sh9 million and not Sh7m as earlier reported by Mijungu.
She stated that despite Ivanna spending four months in hospital, Okari only showed up for a month contrary to Ken Mijungu’s post that he was there for his daughter.
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.
Ken, the “somali guy” took the baby to hospital, made major decisions, while her mother was working. He was there daily, has continued to see her through her recovery in the absence of her biological father, I don’t know what you call father, that is a father to me. On behalf of my family, keep out of our business & shame on you for using such racist words on another Kenyan in this day & age. Its 2020!
Mercy went ahead to defend Betty and echoed her earlier post where she praised the Nairobi hospital staff for being supportive when baby Ivanna was admitted at the facility.
Betty, i’ve seen the remarkable response on all our social media platforms as a family, people sharing messages of hope, others confiding in us about their current not- so hopeful situations. To all those reaching out to us – we thank you & we understand. It is said that in Africa, a single medical bill can spring you to poverty, those are the realities we must begin to talk about & demand solutions for. We saw it with our eyes how good Kenyan doctors & care givers made a difference for us & we want to share that.
Betty I agree the valet @Nairobi hospital knew us all by names and they really came through everyday! So take heart and don’t shy away from sharing your story as you see it.
We love you and we’re proud of you.
