Ex-student leader blasted for complaining over a Kenyan supermarket that refused to take dollars

Published

Former University of Nairobi student leader Irene Kendi has found herself on the receiving end after she  ranted on Facebook group ‘Buyer Beware’ about her efforts to make payments at a Kenyan supermarket in dollars.

She explained how she was in the supermarket with a foreigner and asked if she could pay using dollars after the foreigner’s credit card failed.

The cashier directed her to the manager who still told her it would be impossible.

“They said they don’t take dollars so I had to look for the manager who responded the same. In embarrassment, we returned everything and walked out. My question is, whose mistake it was? Customer’s ignorance of not knowing a dollar is not a transacting currency in such a big supermarket or the supermarket management policies?” Kendi wrote.

Her efforts to expose the supermarket on Buyer Beware, bounced with some users asking her why she couldn’t rush to a bureau and convert the dollars to Ksh.

“Why didn’t you rush to a nearby Exchange Bureau and get the Kenyan currency, come back, pay for your items and leave? Was it too much or you were trying to fault find? So, why didn’t you use your cards to withdraw cash at nearest ATM?” a user questioned.

“This is funny. You are funny. There a bank right outside the supermarket that might take you 15 minutes at most to withdraw your money in Kshs but no, it had to come to this. Of course it’s your fault for trying to blame other people for your very minute problems,” another wrote

“USD is not the legal currency of the Republic of Kenya so stop the stupidity and attention seeking. The attendants did not do anything wrong. It was her responsibility to look for an alternative to pay if the card option failed. Such a small issue and she made it turn to a mountain! Spare us please!” a user commented.

“If they accepted your dollars but gave change in Rwandese Francs, would you accept? Things work both ways,” another retorted.

“The trading currency in Kenya is Kenya Shillings. Its common decency to ask if other currency is acceptable before going ahead and “inconveniencing” business owners who will obviously lose some cash value in the exchange. Irene is at fault here!” a user stated.

By JUDITH GICOBI

Billionaire businessman Chris Kirubi says he is yet to see himself as successful because he has not achieved his dreams.

He revealed this in an interview with Business Daily, DJ CK, as he’s popularly known, says in spite of battling a sickness this has not made him streamline his day to day activities as he still holds almost six meetings per day at his home. 

“…I’m not yet successful. I have a dream. I work more now in my home than I worked in the office. Many people come to see me because I’m sick. My people want to come and consult with me. I still run my companies. I’ve never switched off.”

Chris reveals achieving a goal and not money is his primary motivation. Though he considers himself a billionaire, he is yet to know how much he is worth. 

“I don’t know (my worth). I never count. Counting means looking back and I don’t look back,” said the Capital Group Ltd Chairman

All is not well for Terence Creative and wife Milly Chebby after 20-year-old Anita Soina unleashed a damning screenshot.

This explosive screenshot comes months after Terence apologized to his wife for cheating.

He wrote on his social media,

Enemies want us to separate but our love will live forever. Those who wished us to separate are now ashamed. They waited to laugh at us but that’s not going to happen. I fell in love with you and will forever love you.

In the screenshot, it is clear that Terence was trying his best to get in touch with Anita.

This is as late as mid last month.

When he calls and misses her a couple of times, Terence then texts Anita saying,

“Kulenga nayo!”

To this he gets no reply.

Anita unleashed the screenshot after an Instagram account trolled her on Saturday night when she went live while on air with Annitah Raey on her show on Hot 96.

Check out the screenshot below.
