Ronald Karauri became a household name as the CEO of what was once Kenya’s most popular betting firm, Sportpesa.
The former captain is now trying to add to his impressive CV and is now vying for the Kasarani MP political seat.
Ronald astonished many people a few hours ago when he stated that he had just received his KCSE certificate from his former secondary school, Mang’u High.
The 44-year-old stated on his Twitter page, “Took a trip back to Mangu High to pick my KCSE certificate that I had never picked up all these years. Very nostalgic and really great effort from the teaching team keeping the standards despite the huge increase in the number of students. #JishindeUshinde #Panthers.”
Ronald then revealed that he had managed to avoid using the original result slip. The large engravings of the CEO’s name on their dining hall can be seen in the background of one of the photos—no minor feat, if you ask me.
In a previous interview, Ronald revealed that he entered the University of Nairobi on a mechanical engineering course.
But in a move he says he later regretted, the father of 3 dropped out in his 3rd year to take up an offer as a graduate pilot trainee at Kenya Airways (KQ).
“The perception of what an engineer when you join, I think I was disappointed because we were given those old computers, so the interest in the course started ending. By the way, anyone coming to me telling me they want to be a pilot the advice I will give them is; to do a degree, finish then fly. Nothing stops you from flying. I regret not having gotten a degree,” he said.
