The latest millionaire in town is Gordon Ogada Paul following his correct predictions in betting company SportPesa’s Sh230,742,881 million mega jackpot.
The winner announced himself on Tuesday on Facebook, before the planned official unveiling scheduled for Wednesday.
The new millionaire created a new Facebook page with one photo captioned: “My God has shown me his glory today, for winning mega jackpot 230m.”
Ogada, whose home is in Migori County, correctly predicted the outcome of 17 football matches to win last week’s jackpot.
The betting company was to announce the winner of the Sh230,742,881 million mega jackpot on Wednesday.
