"I Was About to Borrow But ..." Inooro TV Journalist Reveals Why He Fears Borrowing Hustler Fund

Kenyans have continued to elicit mixed reactions after the president launched the hustler fund on Wednesday, November 30th. Some have supported the move while a majority seem to be disappointed.

While hosting a morning show on Thursday, Inooro TV journalist Kamau Kang'ethe said that he was just about to borrow the hustler fund until something peculiar happened and he boycotted the mission until a clear explanation is given.

Kang'ethe said that he feared entering his Mpesa pin because he felt this was a way of exposing his private financial situation to strangers. According to him, he felt putting his Mpesa pin would put his Mpesa account at risk of hacking.

The TV host asked parliament to push for other alternative methods that Kenyans can use to access the funds without necessarily giving out their pins. He argued that giving out the ID number is much better and safer.

"I was very much interested to know my loan limit so that I can borrow. I followed all the steps until I reached a point where I had to put my Mpesa pin. I boycotted the plan for fear of my financial security. I love everything about the hustler fund but that idea of sharing my Mpesa pin is scaring me," alluded the journalist.
