An artisan in Gikomba market was on Friday handed the keys to a brand new house worth Sh7.8 million.

Thirty four year-old James Njagi walked away with the two bedroomed house located at Richland apartments in Kahawa West in the ongoing Safaricom promotion Maisha ni M-Pesa Tu.

The father of one becomes the first winner of the competition in which the telco company will be giving away six more houses.
