A Lady Served 2 and Half Years Sentence For ¢30,000 'Momo' Error Transaction, And Have To Still Pay

A Ghanaian Mobile Money (MoMo) Agent, who was also a student made an error in a MoMo transaction. Whiles sending Three Thousand Cedis (¢3,000) MoMo for a client, Gifty says she mistakenly sends Thirty Thousand Cedis (¢30,000) but found out rather late in the evening when balancing her books. According to "Crime Check Tv Gh" reports. 

MTN confirms that the recipient has withdrawn the money. All efforts to get him proves futile as he refuses to pick up his calls. A teary Gifty agrees with her poor parents to pay 1000 cedis every month to her boss. Meaning within one and half year she should be done paying the debt. Her boss agrees. She started and pays the exact amount every month for four (4) months to the police, but unfortunately on the fifth month she was not able to pay the promised ¢1,000 she was able to pay 800 cedis. That incomplete payment couldn't go down well with her boss. She says her boss becomes angry and causes her arrest. 

Doubtfully, She claims she couldn't tell the judge she is paying the money because of the shock of being in court for the first time. She was given a two and a half years sentence and still asked to pay the money to the complainant when she is discharged. 

The defendant (Gifty) was discharged yesterday after serving her sentence. Though she enrolled on the UCC distance education for undergraduates whiles in prison, she still had tears flowing freely on her cheeks after gaining her freedom.

Ghanaians has however felt sad for her for crying uncontrollably. Perhaps she is still thinking how she is going to pay such an amount having being in jail for Two and half years. Aww!! So what was the sentence for, if she would serve and still pay for her guilt?
