Ever since he met President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2014, Jaro Soja’s life has been filled with good fortune, claims the Gor Mahia superfan.
One of his many favorable outcomes since then is his newly finished home in South Gem, Siaya County. As a result, Jaro has extended his invitation for a housewarming party to the man he believes is behind his good fortune – President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“Since meeting President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House Nairobi in November 2014 – after Gor were crowned Kenya Premier League Champions –, good fortune has been my portion. He opened a myriad opportunities for me. I believe it is God who sent me to meet and interact with the Head of State.
“Before I met the president, I didn’t know I would have such a house. Now, everyone treats me with respect and is ready to assist me because of my closeness to the Head of State. I thank the president for changing my life from a mere Gor Mahia fan to someone with a decent life.”
“Seemingly, he is a symbol of good luck, especially to me. I now take the opportunity to invite him to my Gem home for house-warming, and I will cook him kuku ya kienyeji. I’ll appreciate if he takes notice of my request and give me a date,” Soja said.
As of July last year when Jaro married his longtime girlfriend, Emmer Owago, in a traditional ceremony, he lived in a mud house.
Today, the two-bedroomed house is made of stone and has been painted with the colours of the Green Army – Green and white.
