The Yvonne Okwara debate

10 December 2014, 15:13 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Just recently, the KTN TV presenter Yvonne Okwara got married to –we would like to assume-the love of her life Andrew Matole.

And barely have a few days passed after the nuptials and already there is a lot that is coming up about the man. Not good stuff though, and the first thing I just had to ask myself was whether there was something wrong with our beautiful anchors. Because she clearly is beautiful and not just her but all the others that have gone down the same route, we hardly need a reminder when we have Esther Arunga, Cynthia Makuyu, Lillian Muli, Linda Oguttu. the list is just endless. Rumors may just be that but always remember that where there is smoke there is fire.

So I sit down and ask myself, these women are beautiful, are at the top of the careers, are making their own money-basically they have what most women would like to have going for them. So why do they settle for bad seeds. This is not meant to sound like a judgment call because at the end of the day, the heart wants what it wants. And I am sure I am not alone in my musings, because it really does baffle the mind when you hear that one you think has her head screwed on correctly had to change her wedding venue three times just so that the man’s past women would not catch up to them. It makes the whole affair clandestine. So why settle? It cannot be because there is a shortage of men, because I doubt there ever will be that. If it is about money, I am sure Yvonne has had her pick of them and surely many with less baggage coming with them. So really, is there something wrong with our local TV presenters?

Theirs is out there because they are in the limelight but women can be the worst decision makers when it comes to relationships. The rest of us may be out looking in, and clearly see that something is off but the woman in the relationship will bend over backwards just to either keep up appearances or maybe she really is just head over heels for the man.

Put it down to desperation and the guy being there at the right time, she is up there in the ladder and the biological clock is ticking, the only thing missing is family and the guy just had the right opportunity as compared to those who came before.

Then there are the ones who are taken in by the man’s illogical character. Let us just say that when they are together, he gives her enough excitement to last enough screen time. Both on and off it. No matter how you will try to convince her otherwise you are instead pushing her into the man’s arms.

Being an anchor is hard work, you have to be prime and proper 24/7, so when there is that person who is the exact opposite of what you are, then that is where the attraction really lies and maybe that is what these women really crave and run after.

But then again we have the models of propriety  to look up to like let’s say Julie Gichuru and Caroline Mutoko.
