SportPesa Kenya records that the newly-unveiled house is Ogada's second home as he also owns another one in Kitengela which he bought a few years ago.

The Manchester United fan underpinned that he chose to build a rural house that was of the same standard as what he owns in Nairobi.

“My wife and kids can be as comfortable no matter which house they are in, for that I will forever be grateful to SportPesa,” Ogada noted.

The father of three, who is also working on a project in Ngong, reiterated that he is into real estate and there will be more investments unveiled in the coming years.

Pompous ceremony attended by community

The ceremony was graced by members of the community who have been huge beneficiaries of the millionaire's windfall.

This is due to the fact that Ogada's millions have helped pay school fees for children from disadvantaged backgrounds in the area as well as improving the living standards of the elderly.

“These are things I only used to dream about but now by His grace, I can welcome my friends and the community to break bread with my family as we celebrate this achievement,” he said.

Ogada is currently on a new CSR project of digging a borehole that will provide water for the people of his community.

“I got it at KSh 12 million (N43,438,620), cash money, and it serves me well to date. It has no loan,” he noted.

He admits that for a long while, he struggled with making the right decision over what he was going to do with the money. Having grown up in a dilapidated house, Cosmas channelled some KSh 2 million (N7.2m) towards constructing a new permanent house in the village.
