Former K24 TV anchor and social media personality Betty Kyallo has responded to reports that she flew to Dubai alongside Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and Suna East MP Junet Mohamed to visit ODM leader Raila Odinga on Thursday, July 9.
Odinga travelled to Dubai for medical purposes and underwent a surgery to treat a nerve disorder that had affected one of his legs.
A bag noticed in several photos shared by Junet and Joho aboard a private jet were compared to an old photo of Betty Kyallo clutching a brown handbag, leading to the conclusion that she had tagged along.
Other netizens based their assumptions on an apparent friendship between Joho and Betty KyalloBetty Kyallo poses in her new Porsche Cayenne. June 2, 2020.
"Hey people, I hear that I travelled to Dubai. Anyways, I am not in Dubai and I am going to enjoy lunch with my friend. We are going to get some Nyama Choma delicacy," Betty responded.
She further asked her fans to be calm and stop spreading the rumours as she was in Kenya and had a business to run.
In the response video, Betty Kyallo was dressed in a maroon dress as compared to the pink one which had raised doubts about her whereabouts.
She also engaged her friend as a witness to her sentiments, proving that the two were enjoying each other's company.
