Mourice Makhoha from Busia County is the latest millionaire in town after emerging the seventh lucky winner of Kshs 1 million in the ongoing Funga Mamilli na Coca-Cola FIFA World Cup campaign.
The 20 years old casual laborer could not believe his luck when he received a call from the campaign team to disclose the pleasantly surprising news.
“I had just arrived at my work place at a flower farm in Isinya as usual when my phone rang, it’s not often that I get calls, so I was surprised. The caller asked my name and whether I had played the ongoing Funga Mamilli na Coca-Cola promotion, after answering the caller’s questions I was given the good news that I am the winner of Kshs. 1 million in the Funga Mamilli na Coca-Cola promotion,” an excited Mourice narrated.
Mourice has been working at a flower farm in Isinya Kajiado County as a casual laborer to raise money for college where he plans to pursue an accounting course.
“I bought a Coca-Cola and did not throw away the bottle top, I sent the number on the bottle top to 40111 then forgot about it. I could not believe what the caller was saying. When they called me again I did not pick the call I thought these were the con-men who steal money from people. I thank the Coca-Cola team for being persistent and following up through their teams in Isinya that I believed the news,” he said.
