Migori based pharmacist wins Sh11 million SportPesa Mega Jackpot bonus
A Migori based pharmacist is the latest winner of the Sh11 million SportPesa Mega Jackpot bonus.
El Adel Wambita bagged the amount after correctly predicting 16 of 17 matches at the weekend.
The 35-year-old could have won an even bigger amount, probably twice as much as he did, had he correctly predicted the outcome of the 17 matches.
But as it turned out, he wrongly predicted the outcome of the crunch English Premier League clash between Tottenham and Liverpool.
Tottenham won the match 2-1 in controversial fashion, with Liverpool, the visiting team, denied a clear goal by a dubious officiating move before being reduced to nine matches.
“I really feel good about it. The first thing I will do (with the winning money) is to give 10 percent as tithe.” said an elated Wambita accompanied by his wife Effie Wambita.
Wambita says he received the news while with his family in Nairobi.
“I have previously won Sh35,000 and Sh10,000 so I was a bit shocked but composed when I received the news,” he explained while receiving the dummy cheque at Greenspan Mall in Mombasa.
Wambita who hails from Homa Bay and works in Migori, revealed the cash will help him as he has had to go through a period of financial challenges in the recent past.
Part of the winnings will be channeled towards paying school fees, said Wambita, a student at Amref International.
“I prayed before placing this bet and since God saw me through, tithing will be the first thing I will do.”
Meanwhile, Wambita, an ardent Manchester United fan, is vouching for Gor Mahia to beat AFC Leopards in an eagerly anticipated Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League match. The clash is set for the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani. The clash is slated for October 4, 2023.
Gor and Leopards are approaching this assignment with shaky form following draws versus Bankers KCB and Shabana respectively at the weekend.
