Gordon Ogada from Kibera slums joined the list of millionaires in the city after winning a SporPesa jackpot of 200 Million shillings.
However to the surprise of many, Gordon now says he does not have the money just a few months after acquiring it.
“There is a misconception that I am moneyed ever since I won more than Sh200 million. Truth is that I don’t have the money. I know it’s hard to believe,” he says.
He says he put his money into long term investment but even that has not prevented him from going broke most of the time.
Just a day after winning the Jackpot, Ghetto Radio exclusively reported how Ogada is a man known by his neighbours as one who is living the lifestyle of a drunkard.

“It’s been five months since I won the money. I put virtually the whole amount into long-term investments. I don’t have money just floating like many people want to believe. I am broke most of the time.The many investments drained me,” he added
Gordon adds that he also used the money to put a roof over his parent’s head.
“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. They think I have loads of cash, when, in real sense, I don’t have a money floating,I also bought a few property here and there. All these cost millions. I’m literally drained,” he said
The young millionaire who was unveiled in January says he is tired of the societal misconception that he has money lying around.
