Kenyan woman jailed for using money wrongly sent to her M-Pesa

Published

on

Are you tempted to use the money sent to you via Mpesa wrongly sent to you by another Mpesa user? Think again!

A woman has been jailed for six months for using Ksh 27,140 that was accidentally sent to her Mpesa account. Margaret Njeri was unable to pay the Ksh 40,000 fine for the offence and was taken to Embu prison to start her sentence.

Njeri is accused of stealing the money which Richard Mbui sent to her by mistake on December 7.

Mbui asked her to return the money but Njeri went on to withdraw and use the cash and switched off her phone to avoid being traced.

She pleaded guilty, saying she had some pending commitments and she used the money on it.

The accused pleaded with resident magistrate Jean Ndegeri to be allowed to pay it back in installments of Ksh 2,000 a month. But Ndegeri said such an arrangement would take too long. She said the complainant will be reimbursed from the Ksh40,000 fine.

Some mobile phone subscribers spend money sent wrongly to their accounts instead of waiting for the send to reverse the transaction. Often, culprits often get away with it as Safaricom refers victims to report the matter to the police for investigations and prosecution.

Our Thrilling Two Hours Tour at Victory Gardens Phase 3, 4 & 5 on the 18th of September 2020

Published

on

It was a very electrifying afternoon as we mentored our social media followers on how to build positive and remarkable relationships.

We touched on various life issues including how to laugh with a confident and deliberate abandonment, how to build extraordinarily positive relationships in families, workplaces, with God and in our social lives.

We also spared a cool 30 minutes to point at plot beacons for our customers, showing them how trees at this gated community are flourishing plus showing customers how Optiven has done the drainages.

Oh! We even had great fun crawling through one of the drainage culvert, which easily accommodated Optiven Team Leader as he easily crept to the other end. You can catch up with the Facebook Live here: (https://web.facebook.com/watch/?v=776150606288508&extid=GOZRywQJbqSrzSDM)

You can also catch up with the entire episode on You Tube right here: https://youtu.be/apZ14dvBg_g

What’s more, we prayed and prophesied for more customers to start building their dream homes in this gated community; to live victorious, joyfully and peacefully, in this extraordinary project that is located at the heart on Kitengela in Nairobi Metropolis.

If you want to join this remarkable and amazing project or to refer someone, just get in touch with us today. (Every person who refers someone will be mentioned on our next show)
