Few months ago Kenya went crazy over the SportPesa mega jackpot winner that walked away with Kes 221 million.
Immediately after winning the young man by the name Samuel Abisai became the internet sensation in he country.
Abisai’s every move was reported back on social media and his heavy spending started brewing controversies. It later alleged that he bought a machine worth millions while his father was still going on with his rope business back at home in Kakamega market.
Reaching (source) to get a word from Abisai’s father on his current living the old man had this to, “My son had travelled to China with his friends for some business engagements. He called me two days ago to inform me that he is back but we didn’t talk much. He has been away for long but I hope to meet him and discuss with him the big plans he has for me and the family. There are things he promised the community back home and I hope he will address that too,”
“At first it was poor tailor winning jackpot when am not even one. Then I was in France when I was in (a) neighbouring country for charity work. Then (buying a) KSh 33 million Benz yet I got a Premio. I travel the world for work. I had a life before the jackpot. Thanks dad for telling them what they wanted to listen to. We as a family will invest when we got the right thing to invest to, not because we want to make crowds happy. We don’t buy mandazi on the road because they look yummy. We buy they them because we need them. We won’t invest because of windfall money, we will invest with purpose. We will take our time as family. even if it is a year,”
