They say honesty is the best policy and Neema Grace's story of how blessings came her way after returning a large sum of money that was wrongly sent to her Mpesa gives credence to this famous saying.

A couple of years ago, Grace was going through a tumultuous time as her mother was suffering from cervical cancer and had been hospitalised at the Kenyatta National Hospital.

Speaking to, the lady said in that time of not only emotional but also financial distress, a total of KSh 49, 556 was mistakenly sent into her Mpesa account by one Hussain Ali Hussein.

Minutes later, the stranger who had sent the cash called her and pleaded with her to return the money with fear audible in his voice as he was not sure whether she was willing to return the money to him.

"I had Fuliza and thus when his money came into my phone, about KSh 2,500 was deducted and I was left with 47, 000 which I gladly returned to him," she said.

Her honesty impressed Hussein and from then, a friendship that would later turn her life around for the better began.

They would talk to each other from time to time and a few months later, her mother succumbed to cancer.

When Hussein learnt of her loss, he sent her a whopping KSh 100,000 along with his message of condolences.

"During the time burial, he also offered me his five-seater vehicle to help in the transport arrangments," she recalled.

Grace would later learn that Hussein is actually a son of a prominent person in the country and he later connected her to a job in which she is currently working with him as her boss.

In a separate story, it was also reported about a young lady who shared an inspirational story via social media to highlight how a traumatic situation was turned around to increase her faith in humanity.

Margot Vorster visited a shopping centre in Randburg and lost her wallet.

To her surprise, a kindhearted stranger named Mlungisi found the wallet and went the extra mile to track her down.

She and her father, Chris, were so impressed by Mlungisi's honesty and kindness that they shared the news on Facebook to honour him.
