It is official, my phone is bugged

At first I believed it must be some kind of mix up at the phone company. People who tried calling me when my phone was off told me they got through to someone else who said not to worry he would call me. They then heard the sound of dogs and children’s voice and he never came back on the line. Luckily it was just an old number I hardly used anyways and you sometimes hear of a phone company assigning the same number to 2 people.

Then, yesterday my editor told me it happened on my new number as well. Same guy, same story. Now, what are the chances? So, thank you MTN I certainly believe your assurances you are not helping police wiretap in Swaziland!

I happen to experience the same problem when calling my sister a day before yesterday,the phone kept ringing for a while and i was convinced that the number was correct,on the background i could hear a male voice whispering to a female by then i knew that something fishy is taking place..later i got hold of my sister and told her about what was happening ,she was very currently based overseas..
