Four months after winning Sh230 million Sportpesa jackpot, the highest-ever won jackpot in Sub-Saharan Africa, Gordon Ogada now says he's 'broke.'
Speaking during an interview with the Nairobian, Gordon said he was 'ashamed' of the way he spent the cash.
“After this kind of spending, I honestly feel embarrassed because sometimes I don’t even have a dime. I am no longer able to help my friends and relatives financially,"He said
"They think I have loads of cash, when, in real sense, I don’t have money floating around,” Ogada said during an interview with the Nairobian.
While Samuel Abisai, who earlier won Sh221 million Sportpesa mega jackpot, invested his cash in businesses, Ogada opted to use his cash to seek luxury.
On how he spent the millions, Oganda said, “I bought a house here in the city and a few cars, besides other investments here and there. All these cost millions. I’m literally drained of course. I might have made a few mistakes here and there. But largely, I did fine. I think I would be more responsible."
After being announced the winner of the SportPesa mega jackpot, having correctly predicted seventeen football matches, Oganda was captured dishing out cash to cheering crowds in Kibera, where he had been living.
