Farmer – Final Shujaa Millionaire

The tea Farmer. The Millionaire

We travel to the depths on Nandi County, Kapsabet Town, Chesumei Constituency, Kosirai, & settle at Kaptiltil village.

The air is fresh, plantation blossoming, sky blue & the atmosphere so joyous.

It’s the homestead of Mzee Benjamin Kiprotich Keino that hosts us this hot noon.

Song after song/ hymn after hymn/ Melody after melody/ Praises after praises, fill the air Kaptiltil.

There’re lot’s of villagers ready to receive us – a tent for visitors – a public address system for communication – & family – to rejoice with their brother Ben.

The women – at the far most corner of the tent are outdoing each other with vocals.

From a driver – business woman – Fish monger – watchman – Mashujaa Jackpot finalizes on a Farmer.

Lotto – for the month of October only – has made 5 normal citizens – Multi Millionaires! It’s the LOTTO MASHUJAA JACKPOT!

Gladys Chepkorir Keino – the winner’s wife – while holding their daughter – Joy Chepkemboi – confesses;

I always felt my husband was wasting money & being Frauded

Now I believe it!

This win will enormously boost us livelihoods

Gladys would then resolve to try play the game & more to it – teach others how to –

Ben’s neighbours who were puffed with joy and unbelief at the same time were full of congratulatory messages and eager to know how to participate in the game.

Ben ajipange vizuri na hio pesa

Asiitumie kiholela holela

edvised his gathered neighbours
Ben and Kaptiltil villagers break into celebration

LOTTO MASHUJAA JACKPOT came to a finale on the 30th of October making the winning call to one – Benjamin Kiprotich Keino.

It was his previous 500/=, 300/=, 50,000/=, 100,000/= wins respectively that got him to believe the 1.5Million win!

I started playing in 2015

I always looked forward for a bigger amount

revealed Mzee Benjamin

The tea farmer will now comfortably pay his kids education & finish his construction.

100/= won Benjamin 1.5Million.

Be encouraged!

Watchman Turned Millionaire!

Security guard Tarus on receiving his cheque

From a distance, you would gaffe Mr. Kibiwot Tarus for an insurance broker. His sharp look, bright eyesight and clever judgement –

No wonder he’s been appointed security overseer at the posh Eldoret Town home.

In a matter of 2 – 3 days

I will honourably part ways with my employer…

then set up my own farm with 2-3 employees

Mzee Kibiwot’s confession.

Surprised … right?

You see – For the month of October – Kenya celebrates it’s heroes

@lotto you are our hero – that’s why we award 1.5M to every living hero.

It is the morning of 30th October when PB 777 000 is pressed on Kibiwot’s phone – He chooses his 6 numbers, Account – KASS, Amount 150/=.

It is not until 10p.m in the Lotto Live show that Kibiwot Tarus receives his winning call.

Deep in the slopes of Kemeloi – Barsombe – Cherenganyi Constituency – Trans Nzoia County we find Mzee Tarus.

The wheat & maize farmer is an adamant gamer with Lotto since 2016.

His unwavering spirit has since won him 10K & 25K previously.

Watu wa Kemeloi – Lotto ni ukweli mtupu

Si mmeniona leo kwa TV?

1.5M To Fish Monger!

The newest Millionaire in town

Tricky ; Eiiish bachelor , sasa utapata bibi haraka very fast

Lawrence ; [laughs uncontrollably]

Judging at first sight Lawrence Otieno strikes like [flash back] that Chemistry teacher that you loved to repel – the stern one? Yes

It could be the Hard, harsh, or severe facials.

Once the interview kicks off the judgement is completely errored by a soft spoken easy man.

Along the Northern Corridor that links the Mombasa port to the Kenyan coast to Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo we find Lawrence Otieno – at the Busia border – selling his fish – as is norm.

27 year old Lawrence Otieno only started playing Lotto this year and would then go head to make it a routine.

It is the night of October 25th that completely gave his emotions a turn around

I almost missed that golden call

I had just won myself a clean 1.5Million

narrated the excited fish monger

Lotto Mashujaa Jackpot comes to it’s peak – Producing 3 winners in a row.

  • Pius Maingi Mulwa – 1.5Million
  • Lilian Bukachi Elizabeth – 1.5Million
  • Lawrence Otieno – 1.5Million

Lawrence – being the youngest of the 3

The remaining prizes range from 1.5M to a brand new Toyota Hiace Van.

The bachelor first saw the Lotto Ads on TV – but it’s only upon witnessing his close friend play – that the drive came.

Lucky man!

He’s since won prize money of Ksh.400 before the Millionaire move.

I am definitely taking my fish selling business online

it got to grow

Lawrence is quick to note that he will build his desired home and well … maybe get a wife now

[Tricky bursts into laughter]


Hope Kept On Lotto

Lilian Bukachi on receiving her 1.5M cheque


I kept hoping that one day I will win

Lilian started off the interview.

For a 54 year old business woman who’s been playing since the 2015 Lotto onset – one would’ve expected her to give up 6 years later. On the contrary!

At first glimpse, madam Lilian Elizabeth Bukachi strikes as a stern / aversed lady. Not the type to mess with – she however breaks the judgement with a;

”I’m so happy to meet Mshamba. I only see him on TV.”

I didn’t believe this win even on the Live call

only until Mshamba called my name

confessed madam Lilian

She’s accompanied to Nairobi’s Michuki Park by her 15 year old son – who by this hour we can’t catch sight of anywhere around the interview environs – common of teenages.

”He’ll just come by” brushes Lilian

Lilian Elizabeth Bukachi is Lotto’s Shujaa this October

She becomes the 2nd multi millionaire after Pius Mulwa Maingi

Driver wins a lot …

Born in Nairobi’s South C area, originally from Luanda – Western Kenya, currently habiting in Rongai area but with a permanent home in Eldoret – Soi – the mother & business woman can noticeably engage us on how Lotto has already changed her life with the particular win.

It is my first time to win such money

I’m motivated to now grow my business

Lilian on her plans

The 1.5 Million winner has an autistic son who she can now pay fees comfortably for.

She won with keyword K24 – maybe that’s a lucky charm – you can borrow it & wake up a millionaire. You just never know!

It is 10p.m albeit the curfew restrictions the 60 year old is struck so hard by the news that he just sits in the car shaking upon the unexpected change of events.

Pius you are first Mashujaa winner of 1.5Million!

announces Mshamba & Bev of the Lotto Live

“I was unsure/uncertain/unmoved/mixed with emotions.” confesses Pius

The Kibera based driver first heard of Lotto on radio & saw it on TV when he commenced on playing.

He’s since won Ksh.250/= four times on different winnings – making him get more reason to play.

cheekily revealed Pius Mulwa

Pius – who fathers his late sister’s orphaned kids – can now pay their fees comfortably, take care of all their needs, buy a plot & finally finish constructing his ongoing family home.
