Lipa Na M-Pesa Winner: Edward Opiyo Oluoch, a Mathematics and Geography teacher at Nyamonye Girls Secondary School in Bondo is the fifth winner of a three-bedroom apartment located in Nairobi’s Riruta neighborhood. Mr. Opiyo won the house in the ongoing Lipa Na M-PESA promotion.

The 39 year old father of three joins Reuben Keitany, Samuel Gathiru, Salma Mohammed and Joseph Kipkurui who have so far won apartments in the promotion.

“This is the first time I have won in a promotion, and I am very delighted to be the owner of this three bedroom apartment. I use Lipa Na M-PESA a lot to pay my bills and shop for my family,” said Edward Oluoch.

Edward has been teaching at Nyamonye Girls since 2011 and has over the years earned the confidence and trust from students, teachers and the non-teaching staff. Most parents often send him pocket money to give their children while at school. His wife Sheila Wekesa is also a teacher in the same school where she teaches History and Kiswahili.
