_☺︎kilunda@briankilunda says: Back in 2018 after receiving my KCSE results and scoring a good grade my dad cashed me 15000 First time to handle such amount. Nikaingia Olx the then jiji kusaka camera ndio nikue nawakunywa. I got a deal with a guy from voi he had a Canon camera I cannot recall the exact model.

It was. But mnyama ulikua sawa after a quick google search about the product. He had posted a price of about 21000 so after negotiating we agreed at my 15000. Since I was in Mombasa Old Town at then we agreed that he should send me the camera using Coast bus.

I was to pay so as he could send me the camera. Mimi huyo nikatuma pesa zangu zote. The guy sent me some neatly packed pictures of the box which had my camera it had my names and phone number on it. I was to pick the parcel at the morning…

At around 10 a.m nilifika booking office and showed them the parcel picture to which I was to pick.

Wakaniambia hakuna parcel imefika inakaa hivyo lakini wameona jina yangu kwa kaparcel kengine.

Nilipewa baasha zile kubwa za ten Bob. That was my parcel nikaambiwa hivyo.

Sema kushtuka. Camera gani inaeza toshea kwa baasha. I quickly tore the envelope only to find ceiling cuttings hapo ndani. Nikajaribu kureverse dooh lakini wapi

Hapo ndio nilijua kwanini wahenga hawakutupaka mafuta kwa mgongo sijui wa nini
