Mr Witness Office, who has been a gardener for more than two decades, last week got the cheque from the Lotto organisers, Mashonaland Turf Club, at a ceremony held at Borrowdale Racecourse in the capital. Despite landing the top prize, Mr Office appeared unmoved as he remained collected throughout the event and indicated that he was not going to abandon his work.“Of course I have won some money, but that is no reason for me to leave my current source of income. The people I work for have money in their accounts, but they still go to work.”
Added Mr Office: “I have not made a proper plan as yet on how I’m going to spend my money, but one thing for certain is that I am going to buy or build a house. At present I don’t have a decent place of my own, but it has always been my wish to have one.”
Mr Office said he only used US$1 to hit the jackpot.
He also hinted on the possibility of buying a motorbike, a move he felt would fulfil his childhood dream of owning such an asset.
The charismatic punter did not disclose his current salary, only saying it was the same as that his counterparts were earning per month.
“All the six numbers I chose have some relevance in my life. For instance, I chose number 32 because that is my postal address. Over the years, I have devised different methods of selecting numbers.”
