Sportpesa CEO sets the record straight on Sh3.8 billion private Jet
The CEO who is known for his flashy lifestyle comes clean
The retired Pilot has refuted the claims, stating that the images doing rounds on social media, were taken during one of his tours around the world and people decided to share them with allegations that he had bought a private jet.
“Some people have simply picked photos I took, while travelling, and added theirs to say I have a private jet. It’s not true,” Ronald Karauri told the Nairobian.
A brand new Gulfstream G450, retails at a price of Sh3.8 billion to Sh4.3 billion while a 10-year version will cost between Sh1.5 billion to Sh2.5 billion depending on its usage, maintenance and level of upkeep.
Photos of the retired Captain, who is known for his flashy lifestyle, had raised Eyebrows on whether he has gifted himself a private jet Gulfstream G650.
Karauri, owns a 2016 Mercedes Maybach S600 and a 2016 Range Rover Overfinch both with synchronized number plates, ACE 888 and ACE 777.
He got his inaugural piloting drill in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. He became a co-pilot for six years and captain extraordinaire for five, summing up a decade-long career at Kenya Airways, from 2004 to 2015.
He joined Sportpesa in January 2015 as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
