A lady from Nairobi has been ordered by Milimani Small claims Court to pay her boyfriend ksh. 23,750 after spending the ksh.3000 that he sent her.
According to the man, he had sent the lady ksh.3000 for taxi fare. The lady was supposed to use the money as transport to visit the man on his birthday. To his disappointment the lady did not show up.On trying to reach her, the lady had switched off her phone number.
According to Netizens, it is the norm for Kenyans ladies to “eat” fare. Many have reported that after sending the transport money, most Kenyan ladies switch off their phones or stop responding to calls and text messages from the person who had sent the money.
The man felt offended and that is why he decided to report the matter to Milimani Small claims suit. He filed his statement and even went ahead tp present evidences.
The evidences were the M-pesa statement clearly indicating that the lady did receive the money.He also included the whatsapp texts that they had been communicating and the kind of agreement they had made.
After sending the money, the lady ignored the man’s messages and calls and further disputed to switch off her phone.The lady in question has been ordered by the court to refund the money to the man with an interest of ksh.750.
Most people are suprised that the matter can actually be reported to a court of law and someone can actually be fined over the same claims.
The milimani small claims court went ahead to fine her ksh.20,000 to compensate for the emotional torture the man had received after the lady spent his money and failed to show up to his event.
The lady has been detained as she awaits her family to pay the man a total of ksh.23,750.
