A Nairobi lady was ordered by the Milimani Small Claims Court to pay her boyfriend Kshs 23,750. This was after he sent her Ksh 3,000 to pay for a taxi to attend the man’s birthday party. But the lady did not show up and instead switched off her phone.

The man went to the small claims court and filed the suit together with evidence which includes his M-pesa statement and WhatsApp chats between him and the lady before and after sending the money.

The lady was ordered to refund the man Ksh 3,000 plus interest of Kshs 750. And a further Ksh 20,000 in damages for the emotional anguish he went through.She was also detained awaiting payment of the damages by her family.

DCI warning

Police had previously warned women against receiving or demanding money from men in exchange for love.

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti, specifically cautioned leading in Universities and Colleges that men who are quick to offer money at times turn out to what he described as ‘predators’.

The DCI strongly warns and cautions the female youth particularly those in the Universities, Colleges, and other tertiary institutions to be wary of predators whose bond of love is premised on monetary cords that are meant to temporarily win their affection,

These cords suffer monetary volatility which lead to suicidal & animalistic psychological attacks. Take time to know him & do due diligence. Said Kinoti in a statement on social media.

Unfair. Because these ‘damages’ mean he wanted to sleep with her sometimes against your will. Why can’t they be also jailed for using money to coerce? You will find he’s way older. Has it come to all women are expected to give sex without marriage? Enyewe rules by men for men because this makes no sense. She can return the money and he leave her alone. Women are so oppressed it’s not even funny
