Dafton Njuguna Githinji is 20 years old and probably the youngest Lotto winner. He won himself KES 600,000 and might just see himself achieving his greatest dream which is to enroll into a Journalism School and study Digital Media.
He started playing Lotto in December 2016 and stopped along the way when the win took too long to go his way. Githinji resumed playing in April 2017. He won some bonuses and eventual won 600k.
“Me and my Siblings were born and raised in Subukia Nakuru. I moved to Kisii after elections for a sales job. It was a Sunday and was relaxing in the house when the sms bearing the good news came my way. I had to call someone to interpret it for me because it was unbelievable!” Githinji States
Githinji is the second born in a family of six. His family advised him to relax and wait for it to be confirmed through a call from Lotto. True to their word, he was called and informed that he had indeed won.
“My family and I are very excited because this money will now elevate our lives. I cleared high school last year and was longing to join a college to pursue digital media. This dream will now come true. I will also support my father and my family.” says Githinji
The Lotto winner works in a clothes and shoe boutique in Kisii. Through the sales job he has learnt to communicate with ease. Something he was not able to do in the past.
“My sales job has taught me the art of working hard and strategizing. Since I am paid on commission, I always strive to make a sale or two a day. Without sales I won’t have anything to take home at the end of the day.” he notes
Githinji believes that Lotto unites Kenyans through the money awarded to winners all over the country. Kenyans are also united through the help accorded to the needy through the Lotto Foundation. The foundation’s projects help grow Kenya in general.
“Lotto is a real game and I am a witness and a testimony at the same time. My appeal to all Kenyans who are still in doubt is that, they should not waste their chances. They will never find a very real game like Lotto anywhere else.” he states
In conclusion, the winner wishes all Lotto players and Kenyans in general a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2018 full of Lotto blessings!
