A week ago the mega sportpesa jackpot was won by one 28 years old Abisai.
Kenyans still remains the same when it comes to minding other peoples business and in that case many have been planning on how they were likely to spend the amount if they were the once awarded.
Photos of Abisai shopping for a new car, a Mercedes Benz, have already flooded online.
While Sportpesa CEO Ronald Karauri promised that the betting firm will help Abisai manage the money. others have been speculating how Abisai will spend his cash.
Former radio presenter, Ciku Muiruri, explained to Kenyans how that money isn’t a lot
“KSh 221 million sounds like a lot of money but it really isn’t,” said the radio presenter. “Have you ever gotten a new job and gotten double your previous salary? You find that after a few months you are still waiting for the end of month in much the same way as you did with the previous salary. “Why? Simply because of demand and supply. The more supply you have of cash, the greater your demand for things and possessions that you never bothered with before.” She went on to explained why Abisai shouldn’t be ‘happy’ and, unexpectedly, many agreed kind
“Let me break down this money for you. 30 per cent of 221 million goes to KRA. Our friend who has never paid taxes in his life (he was under the tax threshold) all of a sudden, is introduced to Caesar who takes his portion and leaves him with Sh 154, 700,000,” she said.
“My point? Relax, my friend. Once you realize it’s not that much cash, you won’t go crazy. If you want to build a sports facility, make it a business and give scholarships to talented, under privileged kids. But most people who attend should pay for the facilities, it’s just not practical to have it all free.” She concluded.
This elicited all form of reactions from Kenyans with many telling her that a man with money cannot be controlled and that was just but her mere thinking.
