Joseph Mugambi Gitonga was declared a winner of 500,000ksh during the Lotto Saturday night draw on 17th March 2019.
Joseph who is currently a resident of Meru, grew up and schooled in the neighboring Nyeri county.
As pastor and farmer, he has worked hard over the years to provide for his wife and children.
He could not shy aware from his excitement and curiosity when he would see Lotto winners on television. This was enough for the man of two professions to start playing lotto.
On the day of his win, Joseph had actually expected to enter the Friday evening draw but was entered for the next day draw.
Luck had it that he would miss the Friday draw only by minutes and be entered for the bigger Saturday draw.
‘The money will go to my children, school fees. I will also open a business for my beloved wife’ said the resident of Meru County when asked his next step.
He chose to finish with some encouraging words for Kenyans. ‘Just try lotto, this is the thing, the way to go’
