Richard Maina, a boda-boda operator in Nairobi’s Kayole estate and Edmond Cheruiyot a hotelier in Kericho each won Ksh 10, 580,954 of the Ksh 21.6 Million mCHEZA jackpot.
Richard, a father of a 10-month old baby could not hide his joy after winning the money, and vowed to use his winnings to secure his child’s future. Edmond, who runs a small hotel business in Kericho looked forward to upscaling his business with the money he won.
Speaking during the press conference to receive their prizes, Edmond and Robert, both 30 years old, were relatively new to the mCHEZA platform, but appreciated the opportunity to play and win money.
“Since I am not married, I am focused on expanding my restaurant business,” said Edmond.
“I am overwhelmed by the cash prize. I am yet to decide what to do and will need all the support I can get to ensure I invest the money wisely for my baby,” said elated Robert.
