Betty Kyallo’s mother could not help but get emotional after Pulse Magazine ran a controversial interview about her daughter Betty Kyallo on Friday.

The Magazine had published an article alleging to have spoken to Betty concerning her plans to settle down and seeking her comment on Dennis Okari’s wedding.

Betty accused the magazine of using an interview she had done nearly seven months ago with the publication to make a story appear current.

“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. Desperate to sell copies by using my name.” an incensed Betty wrote.

Taking to Instagram after her daughter expressed her disappointment, Julia Ngii wrote “May the hand of God punish those earning out of my daughter’s name. It’s so painful as a mother to read this Muendo.”

Following the outrage on social media, the publication has been pulled down but it is not a good look for the media house as is not the first time Standard Media Group has come under fire over an article on Kyallo. In August last year, The Nairobian Paper ran a salacious article on Betty who once worked for Standard Group’s KTN station.

The paper claimed that after Betty split with Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, he took back a BMW X6, a Porsche Cayenne and the house he had bought for Betty in Nairobi’s Kilimani area leaving her homeless.

Things were allegedly so bad that Joho repossessed the car as she was driving on Mombasa road. “Joho took his house and the BMW. The Porsche Cayenne was repossessed from Betty when she was behind the wheels on Mombasa Road. She was forced to park off the road near Nyayo Stadium and pick her stuff before Joho’s security detail seized it,” an excerpt from the piece reads.
