Kakamega town recently gave a heroic welcome to one of their newest richest people after giving a big welcome to Samual Abisai, the guy who won Ksh221 million from the SportPesa Mega Jackpot.
Abisai was first taken into his former humble home where he grew up with his 11 siblings in Lurambi which is 10 minutes away from Kakamega.
“The last time I visited here last December, I was walking with my father towards town when he pointed a construction site that was being put up by a young man and told me I should do the same,” said Abisai, “It’s an emotional moment for me after all the poverty we went through and my aim is to empower my family economically. It’s better to teach a man how to fish than to feed them fish.”
His mother could not hide her joy and gave out this statement: “I’m crying with joy because Abisai is named after my father. I’m so happy for this win and I pray he will have the wisdom and humility to spend his fortune in the right way.”
Afterward, a huge ceremony was held at Bukhungu Stadium.
