Jeff Koinange wins thousands after winning Rugby World Cup finals bet

Award-winning Citizen TV journalist Jeff Koinange received thousands shillings after winning a bet at the just-concluded World Rugby World cup.

Jeff who was supporting South Africa bet against Bernard Ndong who was supporting England on which team would lift the trophy.

The seasoned journalist had the last lough after a tactical and efficient South Africa walloped England 32-12 to lift the trophy.

True to his word, Ndong sent Jeff Ksh 10112 as agreed via mobile money transfer and shared the message on Twitter.

“Yap, the team I was supporting lost but I’m a man of my word. @KoinangeJeff Bet paid” Wrote Ndong.

The final which was watched by millions across the globe saw the Springboks assert their long-standing dominance and bring the trophy back to Africa.

Tactical South Africa was the better side throughout the encounter, making mince-meat out of their opponents.

Cheslin Kolbe put the icing on the cake to seal Springboks’s victory with six minutes to go, adding to brilliant performance from Mapimpi and six penalties from Handre Pollard who stood out during the encounter, terrorizing England’s squad.

England reached the finals after stunning New Zealand 19-7 while South Africa made it after crushing a determined Wales 19-16.
