A print media Freelance Journalist who banked on his colleagueâ€™s ignorance to pose like a big shot found himself walking all the way home after spending all his savings to fulfil the impression they had about him.
This happened at Nicodemus Joint in Nakulabye.
Confessing to a friend, The New Vision Journalist who is a non-resident student of Makerere University, residing at Kyebando, chose to have an evening out with three female coursemates at campus.
As they got tipsy, talk soon zeroed in on girls and eventually money.
Man, we hear you people at The New Vision have a lot of money. You write only one story and make over sh1m, one of them said, confusing the full-page rates for advertising in The New Vision with the money allotted per story.
The journalist went ahead to prove his point by withdrawing sh50,000 from his ATM account.
Later, when the girls had left him, he discovered he did not have any transport home.
Unfortunately, his friends refused to help out with any money and he had to walk home. Ends
