A boda boda rider Cosmas Kabole became Lotto’s 186th millionaire and 20th multi-millionaire after winning Sh5m in the third Power draw held last Saturday.
The euphoria was shared by two other winners, Samuel Maina and Petro Kiplagat, who split a Sh1.2 million windfall, with each taking home Sh600,000
Kabole, who is happily married with a two-year-old son, received the amazing news while preparing dinner as his wife had travelled up-country.
The 28-year-old was taken aback with the news and couldn’t hide his excitement as he immediately shared it with his wife who was in Kakamega at the time.
He is thinking of buying a plot and building a home. He also hopes to assist his wife to pursue a career in hairdressing.
