Her brother, Albert Okwara, was born deaf-blind close to 50 years ago.

She got her foremost job at walkers hotel, where she was expended a mere Ksh 150

several provincial and international conferences, including the Conference of African Finance Ministers in Abuja, Nigeria, in March 2014.

She was about 10 years old when she began hosting the KBC’s children’s variety show.

In 2008, she evolved a Radio Talk Show Producer of QFM.

Nation Media extended up QTV, and she again signed on as a producer, but in November 2012, she transferred to KTN.

On 22 April 2018, Yvonne Okwara finished her contract of 5 years with KTN and joined Citizen tv in June 2018.

But where did her love for the screen begin? Her passion started when she was only 8 years old back at KBC. She introduced a Children’s Variety Show and did a mixture of voice-overs. No, she is not a successful journalist yet since she is continuously improving. But she is not there yet.

On the prospect to be one of the critical interviewers during the 2017 Presidential Debate, she acknowledges it was one of the most excellent chances she thanks God for. Talking about the whole experience, Yvonne admits that she was anxious, which was a good thing was since the adrenaline trained her to put her best foot forward. Luckily for her, she had met nearly all the – forehand during KTN’s “Meet the President” show.


Many individuals meet their soulmates in somewhat unique situations, but Citizen TV anchor Yvonne Okwara’s devotion story is fantastic.

In a sit down with one of the local dailies, the poised anchor disclosed that she met her husband, Andrew Matole, in his office when she had brought her sick pet for treatment.

Okwara was 31 yrs old, while her soulmate, a veterinary surgeon, was almost 47.

She tries to keep their union lowkey was, however, vain. Shortly after she got married, people began trolling her demanding an explanation why she wedded a man who was over a decade her senior.


Andrew was 47, and Yvonne was only 31 when they married in 2014. The KTN anchor was questioned about the considerable age distinction, and she said that it was not a bother to her.

Yvonne Okwara swapped vows with her husband Andrew Matole in December 2014. However, her marriage was shrouded in secrecy & people speculated it was because of the other woman.

Andrew Matole was earlier married to one Alice Manyola Matole, and they have three kids together. However, Andrew is 16 years older than Yvonne Okwara, which has been a point to critics.


Talking of her background, not much is known about her parents. However, she reveals in her biography that she is the last born of three kids of Ms. Esther Ambale Sande.

In 2018, the Citizen TV Presenter, Yvonne Okwara, was bemoaning the death of her elder brother, Albert Okwara, aging 50, living with a disability as a deaf-blind person. Okwara took it to social media to share how they had a powerful bond, but now he is finally gone.

Following a long touching post last year, 2019, titled ‘My Journey with Albert Okwara’ on social media, the TV anchor flared up on living with her brother, who was disabled.

Yvonne All- Did you ever feel the pressure to get married before you did?

Yvonne Okwara-No. Never. I don’t live my life like that. Never have. I do what I desire to do when I feel the time is right. I don’t pay awareness to such things.

Yvonne All: Do you feel any force to have children?

Yvonne Okwara-Not at all. It will happen if it’s suggested to occur. I, honestly, don’t take to any societal coercion. Ever. Because I’m such an ingrained person, if there’s ever any force, it would have to be from myself, never from the outside world.

Yvonne All-For the people who don’t desire to get married or don’t want to have kids and are clear about that but resume dealing with societal pressures, what would you imply to them?


She is from the Luhya tribe

citizen TV Anchorperson Yvonne Okwara had to resort to her vernacular to calm down an excitable caller during Viva Africa’s live sports show.

The caller remembered only as Christine, had won Ksh 10,000 after answering queries posed to her by Mike Okinyi, another reporter.

The caller had fallen to answer the maximum questions needed to have won the amount, and another reporter Francis Gachuri stepped in for her. Gauri worked to answer eight questions, thus winning the cash on Christine’s behalf.

However, the Karen-based guest demanded that the journalists send her the money, to which Okinyi refused, insisting that she had to pick the funds by herself on Wednesday. Christine refused to give in to their demands, and she recommended Yvonne persuade her fellow journalists to transmit the money.
