Educating the future generation with Lotto Kenya – Lotto Story of the 44th draw
Chipson Shikot received a call while he was doing an errand, but he didn’t know it was from LOTTO, so he didn’t pick up. After all, who picks up calls from strange numbers in Kenya anymore?
Then he got a text saying, congratulations, Chipson, you have won KES 500,000!
And at first he didn’t believe it. But when they called him again he stated to. ‘Walinipigia na nikakosa kubelieve lakini sasa nimeanza kubelieve (They called me and I didn’t believe it, but now I have started to believe it).’ The errand he was doing is one of the many things he regularly takes on to support himself as a student of IT. ‘Nafanya certificate saa hii, halafu nitafanya diploma na niendelee (I am currently doing a certificate, then I will do a diploma and continue),’ he tells us. ‘Na bado ntacheza LOTTO, sijatosheka (And I will still play LOTTO, I am not yes satisfied)!’
Educating the future generation with Lotto Kenya
Alice Kihuha views the LOTTO as a blessing from above. She lives in Mombasa and has two children, one of whom was driven out of school for not having school fees. ‘Sasa nikipata hizo pesa, napatia kanisa na nasomesha mtoto wangu. LOTTO imenisaidia sana (So now when I get that money, I will give some to the church and then I will take my child back to school),’ she says determinedly. Her plan was set out as soon as she got the call telling her that KES 500,000 was coming her way.
The final winner of the week was Naomi Manoti, who won KES 75,000. ‘I felt very good, obviously!’she told us, laughing. And she should definitely feel good, because she plays LOTTO every single day. ‘There isn’t a day I miss, because I am now aiming for the one million.’ And what will she do with the one million shillings? ‘Have more happiness, of course!’ Naomi has prioritized everything for her potential winnings – with her last scoop, she bought an electronic she had been eyeing. And with the next one, she will put some money into her construction project. She’s got it all planned out, because she isn’t giving up on LOTTO.
And we aren’t giving up on you, either! What projects do you have planned? Make these projects a reality for only 50 shillings. LOTTO draws are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:00 pm during the Lotto Live show on KTN. KES 100,000,000.00 up for grabs – Kenya’s biggest jackpot ever.
