A businessman from Nairobi is swimming in a Sh10 million fortune courtesy of placing a wager on Lotto just for fun. Peter Kiburi Kangau who is a man of many words said he did not expect the life-changing fortune in his widest of dreams.
This is not just now that he has won himself the amount, as he is always popular where he works and lives.
Perhaps these are the traits that have enabled the 57-year-old multi millionaire to do well in his business that has a lot to do with tourists. Peter is an accomplished artist who ekes out an honest living selling portraits, a career which spans for about 44 years with his market target being tourists.
Having been a trader in the market for a lengthy time, Peter concedes that his past-time was betting and was quick to add that his passion is incomparable.
In his own words, Peter says that he loves to try out and where he is convinced that his money is not going to waste, he will place a wager countless times.
It is this conviction that Peter had when he first learnt about Lotto through the electronic media and he vowed to play whenever time allowed him.
“I played without expecting a win and I must say that Lotto is real. But I must advise those who want to bet to do it responsibly,” said Peter. Peter Had been at his shop in Nairobi when the news that he had won a cool Sh 10 million filtered in. It was some minutes 9.00pm when a call came from Lotto and which would change his life for good.
“I received a call from Lotto advising me to keep my phone on and then watch Lotto live on television during the prime time news. That was a turning point in my life and I must thank God for the mind-boggling fortune,” said Peter.
Even before he could inform his wife who had left to visit his ailing father, the children had already done that and even teased her to goggle the information of the win if she was in doubt.
