Bodaboda man to Become a Millionaire After Banks Blunder

A bodaboda operator is a lucky man after he was awarded a 2 million shillings after a top bank in Kenya made a mistake of using his personal picture for advertising purposes. The motorbike taxi operator who had been distressed by the advert decided to sue the bank for the picture that had been posted on billboards countrywide.

According to digital news media platform, Rafiki Microfinance Bank was ordered by a magistrate in court to compensate the man for causing him much distress. The operator which on court papers named him as Mutuku Matingi says that the billboard pictures caused him untold suffering and subjected him to ridicule after being placed on the adverts as a man who was given his motorbike on loan.

The bank did not consult him and wondered how they got a picture of him without seeking prior permission to use it for commercial purposes. Mutuku was awarded 2 million in the litigation law suit after the company was found to have been liable for the damages.
