Joan Namazzi Sengo took home the coveted ticket for two to an all-expenses paid for trip to watch the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations finals in Gabon come January.

Airtel Uganda on Friday handed prizes worth millions of shillings to lucky winners in third draw of their ‘Tulumbe AFCON’ campaign.

The prize awarding ceremony took place at Airtel Uganda’s office on Clement Hill in Kampala.

Speaking at the handover, Remmie Kisakye Kakuru re-affirmed Airtel Uganda’s commitment to football in Uganda.

Our support for the development of football in Uganda begins at the grassroots with our Airtel Rising Stars platform.

That support is further displayed in our sponsorship of the Uganda National Football team; the Uganda Cranes who as you know made history this year by qualifying for the 2017 AFCON tournament.

It is upon this win that Tulumbe AFCON was built.

Essentially, Airtel is rallying Ugandans to support the Uganda Cranes as they head to Gabon in January 2017

Phanindra Nichanametla, Airtel Uganda’s Finance Director congratulated the winners and encouraged the rest of the country to actively participate in the campaign.

These winners are from various parts of the country including Mbale, Masindi, Hoima and Bulooba, among others.

My hope is that this will encourage everyone across Uganda to participate in Tulumbe AFCON

How to take part in the campaign:

For one to take part in the campaign, Airtel Uganda subscribers are required to dial *162#, where they have the choice to opt into the campaign by selecting option 1.

Customers will then be made aware of their target and will be required to recharge and use Airtel Uganda services up to this target.

Upon reaching the targets, subscribers will receive 100% bonus, which, on accumulation, will be rewarded to them as airtime to be used for voice (prepaid), data and SMS.

Participants are entered into a weekly draw where they could win 5 TVs, smartphones, and an iPhone 6 Plus.

The grand prize of a pair of tickets to Gabon is awarded fortnightly.

Winners will be contacted by Airtel on 0752-600-222.

Airtel Uganda is the proud official sponsor of the Uganda Cranes.
