A 51-year-old Kenyan man has become the latest millionaire in town after winning Sh31 million SportPesa Jackpot bonus.
Fred Tonui predicted 16 out of 17 games in the SportPesa Mega Jackpot to walk away with a winning of Sh31,736,374.
“I can’t believe I have won this money. I placed two bets on Mega Jackpot which is usual for me. I was following the games keenly as I always do and was pleasantly surprised when one of the bets was doing extremely well,” he said during the presentation of the check.
He fell short of the total Sh156,489,885 prize after failing only one out of the 17 matches in last week's Mega Jackpot. The father of five said he will not quit his job despite the windfall.
“I’ve worked at the Londiani Sub-County Hospital for almost 30 years now and I am not ready to leave yet. I love what I do there and I’d like to continue my work, at least for now,” he said.
In February this year, 30-year-old Gordon Ogada won Sh230 million SportPesa Mega Jackpot after correctly predicting all the 17 fixtures.
