Yvonne Okwara is one of those celebrities that like to keep a low profile on social media especially when it comes to her private life.

Her privacy has been interpreted by some as secrecy especially when it comes to her husband Andrew Matole.

The Citizen TV news anchor was recently forced to respond to claims that she hides her husband.


This was after a fan asked “Will you ever share the pictures of your husband Matole? You seem to hide him so much.”

“Hahaha, I don’t hide him. He is a grown man! He can put up his pictures when he wants to. I don’t control his social media! This is my page, not his!” Yvonne responded.

Yvonne Okwara’s love story with respected Veterinary Surgeon Andrew Matole began at his office when Yvonne went to take her sick pet.


A love story which culminated in a low-key wedding held at Nairobi's Crowne Plaza hotel.

Despite their attempts to keep their wedding as private as possible, people had their noses in the wedding between the then 31-year-old TV bombshell and the 47-year-old veterinary. And the bone of contention was the 16 year age gap between the lovebirds.

Speaking during an interview with a local daily, Yvonne addressed all the foul talk that hounded her marriage at its infancy stages.

“People talked. People said things. That’s what comes with having a job in the limelight, but again, no one lives my life but me. My husband is my best friend, we get along incredibly well, and none of these other issues have ever mattered,” Yvonne affirmed.
