The born again Adventist Church faithful Wambita who is a student at the Langata based Amref University said he was delighted to win the elusive mega Jackpot.
” I’m delighted to win this Jackpot. First of all, I thank the Almighty God for rewarding me with this mega Jackpot.

I have passed through major challenges but I thank God for taking me where I am today” he observed after receiving the cheque at the Greenspan Mall in Nairobi’s Dornholm Estate.
