A lucky man who won the Sh12 million Jackpot after placing a bet with a top gambling Kenyan firm, BetYetu on Wednesday left members of the fourth estate in stitches, when he claimed that he dreamt of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory in the August 8 elections.
Speaking during his unveiling as the BetYetu’s pioneer jackpot winner after predicting 13 football matches results correctly, Edwin Kiarie Muniu revealed that he had dreamt that he was going to win big cash, and also President Uhuru’s win in the upcoming polls.
“This is a dream come true. I actually dreamt that I had won a lot of money. I even shared this with my wife, ask her,” Kiarie, who was accompanied by his wife Maureen and 10-year-old daughter Melissa, said.
Kiarie added: “I also dreamt that President Uhuru (Kenyatta) had been re-elected and he was there taking oath of office again, same to (Mike) Sonko and (Ferdinand) Waititu. At the time, I was wondering what kind of dreams they were. But now it is making lots of sense.”
President Kenyatta is seeking to be re-elected for another five year term in the August 8 general elections on a Jubilee Party ticket and will face his main rival Raila Odinga of the National Super Alliance (NASA).
Senator Mike Sonko and Kabete Member of Parliament, Waititu, are separately vying for the Nairobi and Kiambu gubernatorial posts respectively.
