Half term chronicles
By Paul Barasa | March 7th 2017
Faith, not his real name, a form one student from one of the girls’ schools in western Kenya has revealed on how a fellow student found her seated outside the bursar's office and convinced her that she was the school bursar.
Faith further explained that the student told her that she should give to her the pocket money her parent had given her for safe keeping.
Given that Faith’s mother had instructed her to give the bursar her pocket money so that she can be taking it in bits for proper budgeting, she gave it to the stranger.
“I gave a certain girl my pocket money thinking that she was the school bursar. She was dressed differently from other students and a thought that she was telling me the truth,” Faith said.
According to her, the student took advantage of her being new in the school to con her.
She only discovered that she had been conned when she went to the bursar’s office to ask for some money for her use.
To her rude shock, she found a new face in the office, that is when it dawned on her that she had been conned.
