Hotel Cleaner Recovers KSh 1 Milion Forgotten in Room, Hands It to Manager

A hotel cleaner has been praised after handing over KSh KSh 1.1 million she recovered inside a client’s room to the facility’s management.
The attendant, Joan Nasubuga, at Brovoda Sands Lodge in Uganda, was cleaning the room immediately after an Eritrean tourist left.
In the Monday, March 7, incident, Nasubuga found the huge amount of cash inside the tourist’s wallet and did what so many would not, gave it out to the management.
Speaking to the country’s New Vision publication, the woman said she could not take away the money as she was brought up in a Christian family.
“I have worked here for five years and I believe my employer has treated me well. I saw no need to take a single coin from the wallet because we were brought up in a Christian family,” said Nasubuga.
To appreciate the lady for her integrity, the hotel management handed her KSh 3000 and thanked her for her kindness.
