How to Hack your Boyfriend’s / Girlfriend’s WhatsApp Account in 1 minute

First things first, if you feel like you have to hack your partner's phone to know what s/he's been up to, you probably should be working on your trust issues or walking away from the relationship. With that said, I am pretty sure that you'll still find a way whether I show you or not so here goes... :-D


Hacking your Girlfriend/ Boyfriend's Phone Using Whatsapp Web

  1. Go to web.whatsapp.com on your computer
  2. You will be prompted to scan the QR code
  3. Go to WhatsApp > Menu > 'WhatsApp Web' on the phone you want to hack
  4. Click on the '+' button on the top of the screen to access the QR code reader
  5. Now use this code reader on the target's phone to scan the code we had on the computer in step 2.
  6. Congratulations. You are in!

The Most Honest Matatu Conductor/Tout in Kenya

Just when you think that the world is a dark ugly place to live, some amazing person goes out and does something that restores your faith in humanity.

We all like to share tragic news but there are stories that, in my opinion, need a lot more airplay anda little more sharing.

Like what would you do if you came across someone else's Ksh. 30,000? Do you secretly thank God for finally answering your questions or do you try and find the rightful owner?

Daniel Mwaura went with the later option and you can read about this incedible story in the facebook post below...


What do you think?

The Process of Buying Land in Kenya

I came across this post by one Innocent Ratemo on the process of buying land in Kenya and I just had to share. He breaks it down step by step and it is impressive.



If you are buying land from an individual or a group, please follow the following steps:
  1.  Ask to see the title deed or copy of title deed. Then do a search at the ministry of lands to confirm who the real owners are or if the title has any Caveat on it. The search will cost you kshs 520.
  2. Do a search with the local authorities to check of any unpaid land rates. If any, agree with the seller on who will settle the debt. Nb: land can't be transferred if there are unpaid land rates.
  3. Go to the ministry of lands and buy 2 maps, one showing the exact measurements of the piece u are buying (called mutation) and the other showing the neighbouring lands. Each costs Ksh 350
  4. With your 2 maps and a surveyor (you can even do it yourself) , visit the land you are buying and verify the details on the map. Check out all the beacons.
  5. Sit down with ua seller and bargain the price. Write down an agreement. The agreement can be done before a lawyer or yu may decide to do it yourself. It's not a must to be written by a lawyer. According to LSK, if the value of the land is below 1 million, you pay the lawyer 3k. If above 1m, yu pay 8k for the agreement.
    The spouse MUST BE present! Ask me why the spouse must be present.
  6. Pay some amounts or as per your agreement. Don't pay everything, hata kama unazo pesa.
  7. Book a meeting with the lands control board(LCB). They meet once a month. It will cost you kshs 1,000. But there is a special LCB meeting which yu can book at 5k. LCB will issue consent for the land to be sold.
  8. Pay the remaining balance after getting consent from LCB.
  9. With the consent from LCB, a recent search(not more than 6 months), clearance form from County land rates, your 2 maps, the agreement, KRA PIN, 2 Passports and copy of the title deed, go to the ministry of lands to change ownership. Cost kshs 5000.
  10. At this stage, you no longer need the seller. Now go and pay stamp duty ie according to the value of the land.
    4% of sale value in municipalities
    2% " " " in reserves
  11. Now the land belongs to you. But before celebrating, go to the ministry and do a search to confirm if it really reads your name.
