Man picks envelope containing 50,000- looks for the owner in Nairobi CBD

By Brian shrappoet | May 1st 2018 | 2 min read

'Mama bongas' keep running here and there for safety from 'kanjo'. It is this early stages of Friday night. People are moving from one place to another, doing this and that. 

A man, let's call him Tom, has just alighted from a matatu. I find him standing a few meters from Magic Tuskeys Supermarket, OTC area. He has some envelopes in his hands. He keeps asking people whether they had seen a fellow passenger who had alighted the same vehicle as him. 

"Hii pesa ni mob! But nikimwona ntamjua. "(This is a lot of money! But if I spot him I will definitely know him)", he said. 

From a close observation, the envelope contains bundles of notes. On top, it is written KSH 50,000.There are no other details on the picked envelope and the whereabouts of the owner remains a misery. 

Incidents like this have been observed recently. At one time a conductor of a matatu kept a luggage of a passenger until she came asking for it. In another occasion, the dean of students of a certain university sent students an email informing them if any one of them had dropped a five hundred shilling note near the school cafeteria to go for it. 

Such incidents show a high level of maturity. Tom tries to seek the whereabouts of the owner. He shows care and concern. He knows it might be hard to find him, but he tries hard. Being dishonest is expensive, try something more appealing like being honest.
