Former Batallion Signal Officer Titus Koech wins BetYetu jackpot

For Titus Koech, a father of four girls, the dream of winning a jackpot never faded even when people ridiculed his repeated efforts.

Accompanied by his eldest daughter, Cynthia Chelimo, the former Battalion Signal Officer  said he will use part of the earnings to pay school fees for his kids and also start a yet to be named business,

“I thank God that my life will be diffeent going forward,” Koech added.

Cynthia, who will be in third fourm in January,  at Friends School Lukhokho girls could not hold back tears while she too crediting God for the big win.

“My dad could not have achieved this on his own, I know it is God working through him, we are so proud of him,” the composed youngster who wants to be a lawyer remarked.

Speaking at the event, BetYetu public relations officer Levi encouraged Kenyans to participate in responsible betting noting that it provides an opportunity to analyse and support a sport while winning cash prizes at the same time.
