A Kenyan woman’s honest deed has paid off for her as she got cash reward months after returning some money erroneously sent to her account.

Grace recounted how she was going through a challenging time as her mother was suffering from cervical cancer and had been hospitalised at the Kenyatta National Hospital.

In an interview with Legit, the lady said at the time she was going through emotional and financial distress, a total of KSh 49, 556 (N172k) was mistakenly sent into her Mpesa account by one Hussain Ali Hussein.

However, the unknown man who had sent the cash called her minutes later, and pleaded with her to return the money with fear audible in his voice as he was not sure whether she was willing to return the money to him.

In her words; “I had Fuliza and thus when his money came into my phone, about KSh 2,500 was deducted and I was left with 47, 000 which I gladly returned to him.”
