"Now I can organise a party for my family," SAPS constable Lesiba Christopher Lepadima, 35, pictured, said when he got the news that he was yesterday's winner of our daily R5000 prize.
He said he could not celebrate his 35th birthday last week "because I had no money".
Lepadima bought his copy of Sowetan at a filling station in Sandton early yesterday and decided to enter the competition. He said he usually bought his Sowetanin the afternoons and read it at home after work.
"Thanks, Sowetan. You know it is Christmas time and the money will help a great deal for me, my wife and our three children." - Sowetan Reporter
