Betty Kyallo takes legal action against blogger for tarnishing her name

Media personality Betty Mutei Kyallo has decided to take legal action against blogger Edgar Obare in an effort to protect her reputation.

On July 8, Betty posted on social media, expressing her frustration with people who have been defaming her without any solid evidence.

“I have decided to take legal action against people who defame me and my brand without any factual information. There have to be consequences for such malicious actions. I will no longer tolerate such spiteful, evil-intentioned, fake, and false stories against me,” she asserted.

Betty shared a demand letter on her social media channels, detailing her grievances against Obare. According to the letter, Obare published false information about Betty and her boyfriend, Charlie, on July 7, 2024.

The post, shared on Obare’s blog and social media channels, accused Betty and Charlie of running away from a hotel without paying their bill. The post read:

“Betty Kyallo and her Ben 10 Charlie Jones allegedly ran away with another bill at Silverstone Hotel. We give you all the receipts on #bnnpremium at the Link on Bio.”
