Quintet Nimo Chemei, a 23 year old student and mother of two, just won Ksh31 million after trying out the SportPesa Mega jackpot. She correctly predicted 16 out of 17 matches hence just missed the massive Ksh195 million by just one match.
Ms Chemei stated that she used her friend’s phone to place her bet and the ksh100 she used to place the bet with was lent to her by her father. “I lost my phone hence borrowed my friend’s and placed the bet,” she said.
This is real blessing to Chemei since she was forced to cut short her classes at Eldoret College of Profession Studies due to lack of fees. She will now use the money to get back to school. “I want to first invest in education because it will assist me in future. It is after this that I will plan what to do next,” she said.
Chemei wasn’t the only one. Even a guy by the name Julius Kerich won the same amount of Ksh31 million. He is a father of 4 and works as security guard.
