Betty Kyallo’s former nanny has given her side of the story following the News anchor’s accusations.
The nanny whose name is Consolata Wawira from Embu also accused her of being an absentee parent and a bad employer.
A few days ago, Betty ranted on her Instagram stories calling upon bureaus to vet their employees before releasing them to people’s houses so as to avoid such incidents.
“Aren’t there bureaus that can vet nannies and support you even when you employ them to ensure they are doing right by your home and children? Mums and dads we need to wake up and protect our children and homes,” she wrote.
Betty disclosed the salary she gave her nanny, warning other employers that money would not prevent their helps from stealing from them. “Don’t be fooled. Sh18,000 but still they rob,” she concluded.
However, Ms Wawira who is a mother of two in an interview with Tuko dispelled the accusations saying that she stole nothing from her. She added that she had been persevering hardships while working the TV siren.
She narrated that she got the job through a bureau in Nairobi and was assigned to Betty’s house in May 2019.
She reported to work when Ivanna, Betty Kyallo’s daughter, had just been discharged from hospital and was tasked primarily to look after the four-year-old.
“Ivanna still had pipes in her, even the food pipe. She couldn’t do anything for herself, she couldn’t lift herself, and she couldn’t walk. My job was to carry her everywhere. Even therapy I’m the one who used to take her to therapy with a taxi.”
“I sometimes never used to see her mother. But I was looking after that child with my all, more than even my children. I used to stay up at night to change her and regularly check on her,” she told Tuko.
Betty’s allegations, she says, have tarnished her reputation making it difficult to find a job since her work relies mostly on trust.
Consolata who said she loves Betty’s daughter Ivanna and swears that she took good care of the child alleged that a new nanny from Uganda brought in after she left for December holidays set her up.
Fans have since gone ahead to bash the mother of one for treating her help badly as well as call her out on living a lavish lifestyle on social media whilst in her house things are sadly different.
