45 year old Lazarus Okoth, resident of Sesera-Maundo village in the outskirt of Nagongera Township, Tororo district could not hide his happiness. Okoth who last year emerged as one of the 10 million winners in the on-going MTN Kaja initiative has invested the money for the good of his family.
When a team of MTN officials visited Okoth to assess the impact of the win in his life, Okoth proudly showed a two acre piece of land, a residential house nearing completion in his village and a pork joint business in Nagongera town.
“I will forever remain grateful to MTN for this opportunity that God bestowed in my life. How else was I going to achieve all these in such a short time? I entered this game not knowing how it would end but see me today. I’m testimony to the fact that a company like MTN can change ordinary lives through meaningful initiatives such as MTN Kaja” Okoth said.
Prior to his win, Okoth says he lived an ordinary life of a peasant, tilling his small piece of land at his village. However, he now testifies that with the acquisition of the additional acres of land, he is going to start producing food for the market.
While sharing MTN branded gifts with a group of Boda-Boda men in Nagongera town, Okoth who now enjoys a near celebrity status; appealed to residents of his area to embrace MTN and experience the value its services offer, adding that his win is testimony to the fact that MTN has the potential to change its customers lives for good.
