A Kisumu woman was reported to the police after reportedly ‘eating’ KSh 2,000 meant to be her fare to go visit her lover.
According to the woman, the man threatened to send cops on her for receiving the money and failing to show up.

He reported the matter to the police and obtained an OB number which he later shared with the woman insisting on dire consequences.
The woman said the man accused her of fraud, adding that he had already spent KSh 2,800 in tracking her.
“He said police officers would visit me and pick me up like a dog. He also said he dealt with people like me and he had already paid KSh 2,800 to track me,” the woman said.
This came a week after controversial tweep Maverick Aoko blasted womem who receive fare and fail to show up.
Aoko said such women have no difference with thieves who rob people.
“Ukitumiwa fare please show up. If a man sends you fare and you fail to show up it’s equal to a thief. If you kula fare you are not different form the COVID-19 billionaires.
“Some women will say ‘I did not ask you to send me fare’ yet they begged for it and if you can’t show up give a good reason for not doing so,” she said.
