@Dmarigiri_·24m : Who advices our government surely? The president knows kenyans are broke, then HELB want to spend taxpayers millions of shillings on publishing Mugshots of broke kenyans. What will this achieve? Anyways most of us haven’t got a chance to appear on the newspaper, Good times ahead. ”
” @_MrAbraham·10m When taking HELB loans, there are (were) NO terms and conditions that stated “IN THE EVENT OF DEFAULTING YOUR DETAILS WILL BE PUBLISHED IN PRINT MEDIA.” That’s violation of privacy and psychological intimidation. OKIYA OMTATA, I hope you’re seeing this unfold. ”
” @bennetowuonda·5m How do you expect a comrade without any source of income to repay the HELB loan by scaring them to publish their images after 30days this some kind of dumbfuckery Give them jobs, they’ll pay the loan ASAP! ”
