Ghanaian Man Caught weeping bitterly after blowing money meant for building materials on betting

A man who was sent by his boss to buy building materials couldn’t hold back his tears after he used the money on sports betting and lost.

A video that has gone viral on social media shows the man, in his 20s, breaking down in tears after losing the money.

According to a narration by another person in the video, the young man was sent by his boss to buy building materials for a sum of GHc250.

However, he wanted to double the money quickly and so entered a betting centre to wager the money.

Unfortunately for him, though, his predictions did not materialize and resorted to crying and begging others for help after he lost his money to bet
Last month, a church elder named Jonathan also revealed that his addiction to gambling caused him to lose GHc800,000 to sports betting.
According to the church leader, he once owned three houses and a fleet of cars but lost everything to gambling.
He narrated that a friend introduced him to sports betting and he was winning at first, which prompted him to bet with more money.
Jonathan said he won up to GHc80,000 but wanted more, so he staked a bigger amount on his third attempt, which was the beginning of his gambling addiction.
“A friend introduced me to betting, and my first stake was Ghc5000. I was a novice, but the guy who introduced me was good at sports analysis, so I had a profit of Ghc3900,” he said on Accra-based 3FM.
“The second time, I placed a bet of Ghc3000 and won Ghc5000. On the third time, I staked Ghc20,000 and won Ghc80,000. I asked God, where has this been all this while and I have been suffering.
“I didn’t know there was such an avenue to make me rich, and that day the betting spirit sank deep into my spirit and blood.”
Jonathan said when he started losing the bets, he withdrew his savings and used it to stake another bet.
He added that he even borrowed money from people to gamble, which left him with huge debts to pay.
Having now repented, Jonathan said he now preaches against gambling in order to guide the youth from repeating his mistakes.
