SportPesa Winners: How woman won fifth SportPesa Jackpot with 2 Bets

The count of 2016’s SportPesa winners included a new millionaire in town, Kakamega town to be precise…all thanks to SportPesa East Africa, and two SportPesa jackpot bets worth Ksh 200.

The SportPesa jackpot was won for the fifth time by a Kakamega sales lady. She pocketed a cool Ksh 22,049,424 after correctly predicting 13 matches. Her name is Elimah Khanaitsa. The SportPesa jackpot winner is an AFC Leopards and Arsenal fan. She was also the first woman ever to win the SportPesa jackpot. This is in addition to being the first SportPesa jackpot winner of 2016.

The mother of two was yet to decide on how she and her husband, Ezekiel Besa, would spend the cash. She was, however, very excited to have won the elusive SportPesa jackpot with only two bets that totaled Ksh 200. Like most women, Elimah is not into sports betting. She would rather cook for her family. She didn’t even believe that SportPesa was the real deal.

That was her opinion of the then biggest and most popular online betting website in East Africa, SportPesa East Africa – until she became an instant millionaire and joined the list of SportPesa winners. Lady luck smiled on the couple who run their Golden Tea Traders, a Kakamega based limited company that deals with selling of tea leaves on wholesale prices.

Kasarani MP Ronald Karauri was the CEO of SportPesa in 2016. He introduced financial advice sessions for all SportPesa jackpot winners, beginning with Elimah. The business ideas and investment advice was provided by various SportPesa financial partners.

This was in a bid to ensure that SportPesa winners invest their millions well. SportPesa East Africa wants their SportPesa winners to change their lives with the money they win.
