A lucky winner of Sh20 Million jackpot chased away his wife after she came crawling back to him.
Mr Joseph Onywera, 62, who hails from Kisumu County, won the Betway Company jackpot in early June after correctly predicting the outcome of 13 football matches.
Mr Onywera says the wife Ms Anyango abandoned him in 2010 over money issues but came back after she heard of the money he had scooped.
“I saw her come into my compound and I wondered. She had told me to my face that she would only return after I die. So I told her to go away since I am still alive,” Mr Onywera was quoted by the Nation.
The 62-year old lamented that his wife, who is believed to be married to another man in Tanzania, never turned up after both of his parents died.
“Ever since she left, several incidences have happened that would attract her attention. My mother died but she did not turn up for her burial. My father also died and I had an accident, but she did not bother to check on us,” Mr Onywera said.
The jackpot winner has now decided to marry another woman who stood by her side while he struggled.
Mr Onywera has used the money to build himself a new house which is under construction and bought two new plots that he intends to develop.
In his village, he is not only the latest millionaire but practically a “private developer” as some of his village mates now call him.
