Through your newspaper, allow me to warn the public about the increasing number of counterfeit products sold by hawkers in Kigali City. Last week, I encountered a man near the Kigali city centre mosque with several Nokia phones. He approached me and he was willing to let it go for a paltry Rwf20, 000.
Excited by the cheap offer, I bought it. But a few days later, when I tried to call, the battery went off. When I tried to charge it, it jammed. I bought a new battery but this too, could not help!
I realised I had been duped. So, my warning goes to unsuspecting Rwandans who might fall for this same trap. Watch out what you buy.
