Monica Mwihaki Gichuhi was declared a winner of 1million on the Lotto draw held at 10PM on Saturday 13th October 2018.
The resident of Laikipia West aged 48-year had been playing Lotto for a year before her big win.
Monica had been a teacher for several years before winner testimonials on TV were able to convince her to take a chance with Lotto.
Despite being discouraged by friends and family, the teacher did not lose hope in playing. Her childrens’ constant lack of needs encouraged her further to stay hopeful.
Now the teacher cannot thank Lotto enough and vouches to keep playing, she is now certain that winning is possible.
With the money Monica now plans to buy some land where she can practice farming and cattle rearing. She is now able to provide fees for all her children and still have some to save.
Monica now encourages everyone to play Lotto. She says it is not a dream but a reality. “cheza lotto, atakama haujashinda, unasaidia watu wengini”
