In a country were many are facing challenges financially due to hard times, picking bundles of notes would be a life changing encounter to many but to Paul this was as chance to prove that good people still exists.
Paul captain as he refers to himself on his Facebook account says he collected a bag containing Sh.38,000 cash money after boarding a Kenya Mpya bus along Thika Road at 11.30 am on Wednesday en route to Thika town. This was after several passengers alighted the bus at Witeithie area.
“I saw the bag that was zipped and I dragged it with my leg. On touching it I felt there was something inside. When I disembarked, I went and sat at Uhuru Park in Thika opposite the police station. When I opened it, I found some bundle of notes,” he wrote.
“Something was telling me to keep the money so as to settle some bills I had but I decided to talk to some of my friends. 80% told me not to keep it.”
“One mzee told me, Captain, I know times are hard and maybe today was your lucky day, but still maybe God used you to see this money because he knew it will be in safe hands so you can give it back to the owner. And I agreed with him. I also remembered that my parents told me not to eat what does not belong to me,” he added.
