Broke? Check out bungalow that Dennis Oliech bought his mum

Dennis Oliech’s younger sibling has posted a photo of the family’s bungalow on social media in a bid to allay suggestions the former Harambee Stars captain is broke.

Oliech’s younger sister Elsie posted the picture of the expansive house on her official Facebook page on Thursday night.

She captioned the photo; “Des (Dennis) if worse comes to worse mummy’s 60m house is waiting, kuja ulale kwa basement (come and sleep on the basement).


Nairobi News understands the former French based footballer bought the house for his mum as a gift a couple of years ago at about Sh27 million.

The house in an upmarket suburb is now estimated to be worth at least double the amount.

However, a section of social media users have interpreted Elsie’s message to suggest that indeed there could be something amiss with Dennis Oliech’s current financial standing.

Oliech’s fortunes have been the talk of social media lately after former Harambee Stars coach Jacob Mulee shared a selfie photo of himself and the player on social media.


The photo depicting a relatively slim Oliech with unkempt beard and dry lips prompted speculation that the man who earned hundreds of millions while featuring for top French sides Auxerre, Nantes and Ajaccio could be struggling financially.

The 32 year-old Oliech is said to have recently signed an endorsement deal with a renowned travel agency.

This as a majority of Kenyans and football went overdrive on social media with diverse opinion on this subject.
