The latest millionaire in Nakuru town was was handed his dummy cheque on Wednesday amidst joy and jubilation from relatives, friends and neighbours.
The soft spoken Gitahi who separated with his wife over differences says he could not settle after he received a call from a Shabiki.com staff informing him that he was a millionaire.
He called his sister who later assisted him to Google Shabiki.com official numbers and the number that called him was one of them.
“I was confused as I never thought I could win with a short time since I had only three months into the betting game” he said.
Gitahi said that he was introduced to the game by a friend. Even after receiving the call from Shabiki staff and confirming that an official number had been used to call him, he decided to keep the information to himself as he was still not sure whether he would be handed over the cash.
Gitahi said that most of his workmates considered him a fool for daring to bet using his hard earned money. He said that although he dreamt of winning good money, he never thought it would come so fast.
“I will offer 10% of the cash in the church before I plan and make a good investment from the remaining cash” he said.
He also intends to hold a small celebration with his relatives and neighbors.
Gitahi also took the moment to advice those who hold low opinion about betting to always be optimistic and keep trying their luck as they never know when luck will come knocking.
He also thanked Shabiki.com team for honoring their promise.
