Vincent Mboya is back again requesting Kenyans to help him offset his debts and arrears after the drama with Jalang’o.
The 21-year old hit headlines after walking the streets of Nairobi with a placard calling upon radio presenters Jalang’o and Kamene Goro to help him clear his Kshs18,0000 rent arrears.
Jalang’o cleared the three-month rent for the young man but he was not pleased with how the comedian told him, so he vowed to pay back the Kshs18, 000.
Jalang’o told him to work and get money instead of relying on total strangers for help.
Keeping to his word, Mboya was later recorded calling upon Jalang’o to send him his location so that he could take the money to him.
Mboya is now saying that he has been pretending that he is financially okay but he is not.
“I owe about Kshs22,000 to the local shop, some mini-supermarket around here, and my chama,” Mboya said.
According to him, it has been difficult for him to resume his hawking job after his story with Jalang’o went viral.
Mboya has now run into debts and he is seeking a job to help him get money so as to put his life in order.
“When I get help this time, I will behave differently from the way I did last time. I have learnt my lesson. I promise I won’t repeat the same,” he said.
He claimed that he has no bad blood with Jalang’o, Eve Mungai and Papa Fred after last month’s incident.
Mboya further said that there are people who have been calling him promising that they will help him, but none of the promises have been fulfilled.
Netizens have however showed no mercy to Mboya this round with some criticizing him for requesting for help one more time after being ungrateful.
“Dear Mr Mboya, kindly make peace with the fact that you are broke. You will live a beautiful life. Thank me later,” a netizen advised.
“Let him continue pretending, even us we are pretending in these streets that we are okay but deep inside we are suffering,” Essy Bosibori said.
While Victoria Sweeney said, “”Once bitten twice shy, the second time shame on you. Where are you getting the audacity to ask for help?”
“We are all hustling and suffering financially but we don’t go around shouting,” Mutai Victor added.
