123rd Draw and more winners!
Lotto in changing Kenyan lives has a particular focus on transnational moments, many of which have been witnessed through 1,366,510 winners, 111 millionaires and 15 multimillionaires topped off by Geoffrey Kungu Ngige, who is the first 100 million shilling winner in Kenyan Lotto history concluding the GROUNDBREAKING 100 MILLION GUARANTEED POWERDRAW which was launched on November 25th 2016 as the single largest guaranteed jackpot ever to be paid to an individual Kenyan.
The first transformational moment seems to have fallen upon the shoulders of Jecinta Muthoni Kamata, who on Saturday January 7th 2017 became the second Lotto millionaire of 2017 winning Lotto’s 123rd draw with her selected numbers 35, 23, 20, 3, 28, 12 (1) 1 against the draw numbers 20, 28, 3, 47, 12, 35 (1) matching five numbers and the bonus number to receive her million dollars.
In a household where Jecinta’s husband of 22 years Wilson Kagomo Kimiti, is outnumbered three ladies to one, by Jecinta’s own admission a lot of jubilant ululating happened. Not that he minded as he was happy to see his wife blessed with such fortune after all the support she had given as he pursued his career in the civil service. Having her family around as she received the good news was special as they prayed together and gave thanks to God for a mid life blessing and second chance at Jecinta’s own personal dream.
Born in August 1971, Jecinta spent a majority of life in Nyahururu, before moving to Nairobi in 2012 with her family. Committing to the role of home administrator, Jecinta raised their two daughters and maintained a hospitable home for all of her family, ensuring the older of her two daughters navigated through primary and secondary school to be set to launch off to University.
With more time available to herself and with the support of her husband along with Lotto’s winnings, Jecinta will be able to pursue the entrepreneurial lifestyle she had sought to embark on many years later and plans to open a Salon and beauty care centre for ladies.
It will be interesting to see what name she gives the salon, considering that Lotto could possibly be somewhere in the forerunners. Whatever she calls it, one can be sure she will be as equally dedicated to it as she is to her family.
Her message to other Kenyans interested in playing the Lotto was to continue playing Lotto and not give up as Lotto is truly changing lives, a happy certainty that she can affirm having only started playing Lotto since July 2016, a total of 69 times with 8 tickets purchased for Lotto’s 123rd draw.
