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.”

Her honesty impressed Hussein and from then, a friendship that would later turn her life around for the better began. The chatted with each other from time to time and a few months later, her mother succumbed to cancer.
When Hussein learnt of her loss, he sent her a whopping KSh 100,000 (N347k) along with his condolence message.
“During the time burial, he also offered me his five-seater vehicle to help in the transport arrangements.” she added.
Grace would later learn that Hussein is actually a son of a prominent person in the country and he later connected her to a job in which she is currently working with him as her boss.
