Safaricom awards 16 winners with Sh1m each in customer loyalty campaign

Nairobi, Kenya, Mar 18 –  Vincent Munga from Bungoma is among sixteen millionaires announced in the ongoing “Shukrani Kocho Kocho Kenya Nzima” consumer campaign by Safaricom.

“The Sh1 Million will be of great help to me. I struggle so much to keep my siblings in school while depending on the income from my small shop.  It is a great cushion. I thank Safaricom for celebrating me as a customer,” said Munga.

Other week one winners of Sh1 million include: Makori Mogoa Ayienda- North Eastern, Rolyne Kageha Mukunza- Coast, Belinda Atieno Nyang’or- Nyanza, Esther Awino Amoth-Nairobi, Ernest Kaunyangi Nkubitu- Eastern, Daniel Makali Kilobi – Central and Mary Nyambura Mbugua – Rift Valley.

Week two millionaires includes Sofia Mohamed Ali- North Eastern, Japheth Okari Mokua- Nyanza, Nathan Kibiwott Suter- Rift Valley, Naomi Wanjiru Gichoya – Central, Somo Halake Hapicha – Central, and Abraham Agesa Makenzi – Nairobi and Julius Dzuwa Kalume – Coast.

“The money will change the fortunes of my family. I will put up an electronic shop in Mombasa town because that is what I am experienced in. I have been an employee in an electronic shop for over ten years and for once I will be my own boss. I thank Safaricom for celebrating me as a customer,” said Julius Kalume, week two winner from Coast.

Additionally, more than 1.5 million other customers from across the country have already been awarded with weekly cash and daily airtime prizes worth over Sh78M.

Winners from every region are randomly selected through weekly draws with more than 500,000 customers expected to win cash prizes of Sh1,000 and above while more than 5 million other customers stand to win daily airtime prizes.

“We are glad to be celebrating with our first winners of the promotion. Over 100 more Kenyans are still expected to be Millionaires in the nine remaining weeks. The aim of this promotion is to celebrate and reward our more than 29 million customers for their continued loyalty over the years. We believe this will transform lives,” said Sylvia Mulinge, Chief Customer Officer, Safaricom

The ten-week promotion seeks to reward more than 5 million Safaricom customers across the country with more than Sh250 million in prizes. The campaign is in its third week.
