A 59-year-old pastor from the Limpopo province is celebrating a life-changing jackpot of R15 million, which equates to around $1 million. The pastor has chosen to stay anonymous because he feels anonymity will help him to better uplift his community.
The winner says that he plans on using his winnings to build a new church and help those closest to him. He also plans on helping to uplift local businesses and to spoil his wife of 20 years.
“I plan to spoil my wife of 20 years as a token of appreciation to her‚ for sticking by my side when the going was tough. People used to tell her to leave me because I was broke. Today‚ I’m a millionaire!" he told the National Lottery commision of South Africa.
