Church Elder Confesses Losing GH¢800k To Sports Betting Each Day

Ghanaian church leader Jonathan described how his gambling addiction caused him to lose GHC 800,000. He also described how this debt has followed him throughout his life.

Jonathan claimed that he was a beginner who struck it fortunate the first time and won. But the anticipation of making easy money led him into a deep pit from which he is now fighting to emerge.

“A friend got me started betting, and my initial investment was Ghc 5000. Although I was a beginner, the person who introduced me was skilled in sports analysis, and as a result, I made GHC 3900,” he claimed.

Jonathan claimed that his problems started when he decided to try and get what he had made on the third day, only to lose it all.

He is now a preacher and advocates against gambling addiction.
