Media personality Betty Kyallo has addressed claims of being snatched an expensive car by former Mombasa governor Hassan Joho.
The politician allegedly gifted Betty a Porsche Cayenne worth Ksh10 million while they were dating a few years back. This was shortly after Betty’s marriage with journalist Dennis Okari ended.
However when their relationship ended Joho repossessed the vehicle in a dramatic manner. According to reports, Betty was driving along Mombasa road when she was stopped by Joho’s bodyguards who took over the car. They are said to have asked her to remove her belongings from the vehicle before handing over the car keys. The car was later used for campaigns during 2017 general elections.
It is also alleged that she was kicked out of Joho’s Kilimani home. A BMW X6 that he had given her was also repossessed.
Speaking to Radio Jambo recently, the former news anchor denied the allegations saying Joho did not shame her to that extend. Betty Kyallo said that their ended their relationship amicably and currently they are good friends.
