• Peter Salasya took a loan of KSh 165,000 from a Sacco when he was still working at the Diamond Trust Bank, Kakamega branch
• MP Peter Salasya immediately defaulted in his repayment, a move that forced the Sacco to go for the guarantors
A Kenyan man has come out to show Kenyans that Mumias East MP Peter Salasya is not a good person as he purports to be.
The man, who goes by Polycarp Nyonje recently exposed MP Peter Salasya for defaulting on a Sacco he had taken part in as a guarantor alongside two other individuals.
According to Polycarp Nyonje, Peter Salasya took a loan of KSh 165,000 from a Sacco when he was still working at the Diamond Trust Bank, Kakamega branch.
Polycarp and two other members of the Sacco played the role of guarantors in the transaction.
However, MP Peter Salasya immediately defaulted in his repayment, a move that forced the Sacco to go for the guarantors.
Polycarp who publicised the issue with the help of activist Boniface Mwangi disclosed that their hard-earned savings amounting to KSh 40,000 was debited by the Sacco, something that dealt their borrowing power a major blow.
Polycarp revealed that efforts to get Peter Salasya to pay up the KSh 40,000 have been futile with the MP giving them stories day in day out.
“I’m Polycarp Nyonje from Kakamega and l want to expose Mumias East Constituency MP, Hon. Peter Salasya. In 2017, Hon @P_Salasya took a Sacco loan of Ksh 165,000 while he was working with Diamond Trust Bank, Kakamega Branch. I acted as his guarantor, together with two other members. He immediately defaulted on the loan and each time we spoke in person, or on the phone, he kept on promising that he would repay it. He continued to promise us that he would repay, right up to the time he became a member of parliament. I approached the National Assembly @NAssemblyKE and the office of the Ombudsman @KenyasOmbudsman but didn’t get any help from either. I have tried engaging Salasya on social media platforms but he never responds. Our hard-earned savings were debited to the tune of Ksh40,821. This affected our borrowing power in the Sacco. When I try to reach him nowadays, he doesn’t respond to my calls, or even texts. I also approached his party, DAP-Kenya Party but they didn’t assist us.” Polycarp told Boniface Mwangi via his DM.
The fearless human rights activist shared Polycarp’s plea on his Twitter page and for the first time in ages, Peter Salasya responded.
In a quick rejoinder, Peter Salasya while responding to both Polycarp and Boniface Mwangi through Twitter agreed to pay up the KSh 40,821 he owes his three guarantors.
“@bonifacemwangi hehe 🤣🤣 let me assume niko na deni nao but pia they have my shares equivalent to the amount anyway thanks so much for marketing me that am also learned and a banker🤣.Its a win win for me and thanks for trending me on twitter. Ambia akuje ofisi nimpe 40K zake,” Peter Salasya tweeted.
News about Peter Salasya’s failure to repay monies he owes people did not settle down well with a throng of Kenyans on Twitter (X).
Many netizens dragged Salasya on social media, specifically Twitter with a multitude calling him out for pulling such an embarrassing move, considering his social status.
