It is widely believed in Africa that a person’s name determines their destiny. And this seems to be true for Bahati Muriga, 40, a resident of Ukerewe in Mwanza whose name Bahati, means good luck in Swahili.

The mother of three recently scooped the 2014 Female Food Hero Award (Mama Shujaa wa Chakula) and went home with Sh 30 million in total.
