Kenyan graduates work as online writers for international students to support their survival.

Kenyan graduates write for international students online to earn money to support themselves. Kenyan graduates are seeking refuge in the warm embrace of academic writing rather than endure the agony of the nearly futile pursuit of nonexistent work.

Even people with full-time jobs have been known to quit and move fully to internet writing since the pay is occasionally so fantastic.

Ms. Sharon Nekesa, a former full-time teacher in Soi, Trans-Nzoia County, resigned from her position after three years when she discovered internet writing and began making more than treble her teaching pay.

“The purpose of work is to earn money so that you can meet your necessities. That is what I have gained through writing online. I can now more easily pay my debts and yet have money left over to invest and save,” she said to Nation.

Nation got up with two other experienced instructors who had made the switch; their knowledge of English literature is a crucial talent for online essay writing.

Kenyans are so prolific in this industry that they sparked a controversy in South Korea in May 2022 over an academic paper that was rumored to have been produced by a Kenyan and was the subject of debate at a parliamentary session.

The paper sparked an argument amongst Korean lawmakers during the plenary session when Han Dong-hoon, the nominee for justice minister, was being cross-examined by the House. Some lawmakers asserted that the nominee’s daughter employed Kenyan writers to create an impressive résumé.

Democratic Party senator Kim Nam-Kuk questioned the prospective justice minister, saying, “You said that your daughter did not receive any outside help in writing the paper, but there is evidence that a ghostwriter in Kenya actually wrote it.”

The nominee defended himself by pointing out that the paper was authored by a high school student and wasn’t meant to be used for admission to a university.

According to data from the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS), two-thirds of the country’s unemployed people are young people, and their unemployment rate has been rising at a particularly rapid rate since 2020.

According to additional information, the number of young people who are unemployed while not being in school or training has grown by 68% since 2019.

Academic writers want to be left alone to continue their trade, despite it being morally and legally contentious.

Derrick Omusolo, the owner of an online writing business, has had no regrets since starting his business in 2015, when he was still a second-year Moi University student. He makes between Sh1 million and Sh3 million each month, which is enough to cover his expenses and the salaries of the about 54 young employees on his staff.

The figures he provided to Nation are easily verified by a quick look through his PayPal account. The account held a surplus of US$40,000 (about Sh5.6 million) at the time of the interview, and the trail of transactions shows how successful the business is.

His adventure began when he was introduced to academic writing by an older student. His job was to write academic essays on various subjects, such as history and literature, for pay ranging from Sh300 to Sh500.

He acquired his first online writing account called “My Homework” after saving some cash and becoming an expert in the craft within a year.

He began making Sh200,000 per month through this site, which he continued to use to pay a few others who assisted him with the assignments.

He purchased other accounts throughout the course of the months, including My Study Pool, and searched for more chances to produce research papers. Essayshark, Writerslab, Edusson, Writersbay, Essaypro, Uvocorp, Writerszillas, Coursehero, and many more are more writing websites.

Additionally, there are a number of creative, tech-savvy Kenyans who are now developing websites where foreign students may advertise their employment openings and connect with anyone qualified for the position, where they can negotiate the terms of payment. The owner of the website receives some of the money directly.

On the condition that the name of the website not be disclosed out of concern that the State may shut it down, one such developer gave Nation a glimpse of how the account functions.

Stem assignments—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—earn more than arts assignments. In contrast to education assignments, which pay between Sh150 and Sh300 per page, physics, chemistry, and biology tasks can pay as much as US$25 per page (or about Sh3,540).

According to Mr. Dennis Onyango, a five-year industry veteran, “if the arts or education assignment is an emergency, meaning the deadline is rapidly approaching, you can charge between Sh350 and Sh400 per page.”

Six separate online writing accounts are used by Mr. Omusolo. On one of these accounts, which he purchased in 2020 for Sh300,000, he received so many tasks that he quickly recovered his investment.

Sadly, this account was terminated a few years ago after the US government reported the website for being used to aid exam cheating by kids.

Despite how promising it may seem, this business strategy is not sustainable. One of them is the payment system, particularly PayPal, which is becoming stricter and will shut down any accounts it suspects of carrying out questionable transactions. Many online authors use this system to send funds, and once a transaction is reported, PayPal suspends all activity. Accessing the money can occasionally take six months or longer.

The advent of Chat GPT, which is currently used by millions of students worldwide to accomplish the majority of their college tasks, is another difficulty aside from the payment method.
