‘Want to get rich quickly?’ So do the remaining 44+ million other Kenyans. Including tots.

When you are broke and expecting no money, you are likely to come across tempting opportunities that promise a handsome income without breaking a sweat.

You are busy online, minding your own business, or that of others, and then ta-da! A lifetime opportunity presents itself; just like it is written in the good book.

It’s the kind that promises riches with little or no effort.

I believe this is what we call being sold to a dream.

Poor Gullible Kenyans!

The message is always tailor-made for you. ‘Get rich quickly’ or ‘Become a millionaire today’.
