SportPesa CEO Ronald Karauri has revealed how he invested in SportPesa.

Mr. Karauri revealed that he took a risk by selling his land at Sh. 25 million in order to buy a 6 per cent stake.

Apparently, Ronald Karauri had bought the same piece of land at Sh. 2 million.

“I was in a casino when the idea came about. The casino is very interesting because you meet so many people and I was the only one who was flying. The idea was started by one of the people at the table. I got really interested and told him, ‘you know what, I am really interested and would like to join you. So, initially I was one of the few people who bought the idea because at that time, not many people could see it. Some people joined much later,” said the former pilot.
