Airtel customer wins MK1 million

Tuesday was one lucky day for Khumbo Kalua , a resident at Moyale Barracks in Mzuzu when he emerged second winner in the Airtel Money Tayale -Tayale promotion conducted in Lilongwe.

The draw took place at Airtel offices and saw Kalua pocketing the MK1 million after he made a transaction of not less than MK1000 through Airtel Money services.

When Airtel personnel tried to contact owner of the number that was beamed on the overhead as winner of the draw, the phone was out of reach after several attempts.

But a search in the system gave details of the owner as Khumbo Kalua residing in Mzuzu at Moyale Barracks.

By the time we went to the press, his phone could not be reached and efforts to get his reaction proved futile.

Speaking at the function, Airtel Money Marketing Manager Tione Kafumbu said Airtel continues the legacy of creating happiness and making a difference in the lives of people in Malawi through Airtel Money’s Tayale -Tayale promotion.

“We are gathered this afternoon to continue our legacy of creating happiness and making a difference in the lives of people in Malawi through Airtel Money’s Tayale-Tayale promotion.

“As of now this happiness has reached out to 6,700 customers who have won daily prizes of MK2, 000 since the promotion started. This totals up to MK13.4 million worth of cash given out collectively,” said Kafumbu.

He added that since the launch of the promotion, numbers of new airtel money users and the level of transaction among the existing users has increased incredibly.

“We believe this excitement will continue growing. To us growing is a clear testimony that our products and services are people centered and we are proud to add extra value to transactions that people do via airtel money, “explained Kafumbu.

Kafumbu urged people to try their luck in Airtel Money’s Tayale-Tayale promotion adding that August is the final month of the promotion and the lucky winner will walk away with MK5 million cash.

All one needs to do is make a transaction with a minimum of MK1, 000 through bill payment, merchant payment or sending money to other people via Airtel Money.

The first prize in the draw that was conducted last week, went to Harry Banda of Mangochi.
