The Ebola Tombola event at Ngiru town was eventful this year with many participants getting winning tickets.
“I bought a ticket last year and didn’t win a thing, but this year I got a big prize, it’s called Ebola. I don’t know what that is because I’m illiterate but the medics are treating me real nice,” Aguro Mbeki, 45, said from his hospital bed in Freetown.

Many Ebola Tombola raffle winners are ecstatic with their prizes as it livens up their otherwise dull lives.
“You know, it’s like Russian Roulette, it’s exciting, puts a zing in your step. This Ebola Tombola event has got the whole population excited, so we thought why not bring it to the rest of the world? You can play on aeroplanes, airports and even in the customs checkpoint at the venue of your choosing,” event organiser, Ongogo Mellalologoogoo, from Sierra Leon told the BBC.
