There is an old saying that fortunes favours the brave and this befits a medical doctor Braxton Ogolla who became the first Kenyan to sit in a brand new Volks Wagen (VW) Vivo after Lotto’s Power-draw last Sunday.
Ogolla who has been an emergency specialist doctor for the last 20 years is swimming in the life-changing fortune with his lucky ticket number 87269227890.
The windfall came hot on the heels of a Sh 150 prize he had won the previous week and which he used to purchase the ticket that did wonders.
This is enough evidence that such a paltry sum (Sh 150) can lead to life-changing Jackpot, in this case the brand New VW Vivo that is among the sleekest vehicles in the Kenyan market.
Braxton was convinced to come to Nairobi from Bungoma, where he lives, and which is one county away from his work station in Kakamega, on the pretext of a Lotto appreciation party for Lotto players and winners.
When he arrived to his happy surprise, he found out that it was indeed a party that had been convened in his honour as it was at the juncture that he was handed the prize, a fully loaded brand new VW Vivo.
Granted, the new road machine will serve to improve the quality of life for Braxton besides providing his wife with an opportunity to use the only car the family had in their possession.
Braxton, a 58-year-old EMT Doctor who is still very active in the career intends to use the vehicle for his personal practice as well as seeing patients in remote areas.
As he goes with his usual business, his wife will savour the opportunity to have the other car all to herself having retired as a registered nurse. Six of the couple’s children are all grown-up and dependent on themselves save for two who are in university and standard 1 respectively.
