A Moi University student is the latest winner of Ksh1 million in the ongoing Shukrani Kochokocho Kenya Nzima promotion being run by Safaricom.
Steve Ngoje, the 23-year-old Electronics and Electrical Engineering student, is studying for his last semester of his at the Kesses Campus. He says the money will help him settle in life after clearing university. He plans to pay for his Master’s in electrical engineering and take care of his sister’s education.
“I am very happy to have won a million shillings at this stage of my life,” Mr Ngoje said. “I am completing my undergraduate studies with a promising beginning. I am going to enroll for a Master’s Program in Electrical engineering as soon as I get my results. The money will also go a long way in advancing my younger sister’s university education.”
Mr Njoge was born and bred in Kamagambo, Migori County. He is the fourth born in a family of five and has two sisters and two brothers. Their education has been a struggle due to financial constraints.
Other week six millionaires include: Kangwere Mutemi, a 68-year old farmer from Kitui County, Eastern Region; Consolata Gakuhi Njoroge, 43, who works at a flower farm in Thika, Central Kenya region; Bramwel Osogol Emongole from Bungoma, Western region; Jared Mwai Kichia from Migori, Nyanza and Keziah Wambui Irungu from Githurai, Nairobi Region. Coast and North Eastern winners will be announced in the coming week once the winners are reached.
Close to four million customers across the country have been awarded with weekly cash and daily airtime prizes worth over Ksh200 million shillings as the promotion enters its seventh week.
