From the Greatest News Anchor to a Husband Snatcher- Kenyans Turn the Heat on Yvonne Okwara


(KDRTV) – Citizen TV journalist Yvonne Okwara has just moved from hero to zero in a matter of hours following her remarks on the online trolls directed towards Brenda Cherotich, Kenya’s first patient of Coronavirus.

Brenda has been on the receiving end of social media trolls after her name was revealed following her recovery from the dreaded virus. Her friend Brian who also recovered from the virus joined her for a video call with President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday. Brenda was also interviewed on NTV and Citizen TV.

However, most Kenyans led by influential bloggers and politicians poked holes into a story and concluded that she wasn’t sick but was just a Public Relations stunt.

The trolls didn’t stop there, as an unknown person leaked her alleged nude photos on social media.

Yvonne Okwara claimed that Brenda was targeted because she is a woman.

“It is absolutely shamefully how we behaved on social media. This is proportionately targeted at women. We are not hearing all these vile things being said at Brian. All these are being said at Brenda because she is a woman,” Yvonne said during Thursday’s #NewsGang session.

However, Kenyans have questioned why she would raise the gender topic when she didn’t speak after a woman exposed alleged nudes belonging to West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo.

Cyberbullies also took advantage and dug into Yvonne’s past and exposed cobwebs.

We hope Yvonne is strong enough to overcome these trolls.
