On Friday, John Bosco Nsabamana has become the latest winner of an expenses trip (for two) courtesy of telecommunications giants Airtel Uganda to cheer the Uganda Cranes in Gabon at the 2016 Africa Cup of Nations.
Nsabamana joined the two earlier winners David Stanley Golooba and Joan Namazzi Ssengo who won in the promotion code named ‘Tulumbe AFCON’.
This was during the last awarding ceremony for the last winners held at Airtel Uganda headquarters along Clement Hill street in Kampala.
The “Tulumbe AFCON” campaign has concluded officially with the official prize giving ceremony for the last group of winners.
The lucky winners walked away with smartphones, TV sets and two air tickets to watch the Uganda Cranes play in Gabon.
Six winners will watch Uganda versus Ghana as the national football team returns to the continental championship ( Africa Cup of Nations tournament) for the first time in 38 years.
Launched last December, “Tulumbe AFCON” has built even more support for the Uganda Cranes who make their historic appearance at the tournament next week.
Speaking at the handover, Airtel Uganda Managing Director, Anwar Soussa, congratulated the winners and thanked Airtel customers for their enthusiasm for the campaign and support for the Uganda Cranes.
We launched “Tulumbe AFCON” at the end of last year, which as we all know was a memorable year for Ugandan football and this exciting campaign had two main areas of focus; our customers and the National football team, the Uganda Cranes.
With “Tulumbe AFCON, we have been able to reward our customers for their loyalty to our brand and support for the National football team.
I believe that the motivation of football fans across the country has been instrumental in securing the excellent performances from the Uganda Cranes that we have all been witness to
Anwar further echoed Airtel’s support to the growth of football in Uganda saying the Company believes in the nurturing of local talent right from the grassroots level.
Our love and commitment to football is well-known; from our annual Airtel Rising Stars program to our sponsorship of the National team.
Our belief is that these programs and sponsorships provide platforms for both new and existing talent to showcase their skills.
“Tulumbe AFCON” gave us the opportunity to increase support for the Uganda Cranes while also reaching those who support them and are our customers.
I therefore thank all our customers who have been part of this campaign.
Anwar concluded by wishing the team the best of luck in their AFCON endeavors.
Remmie Kisakye Kakuru, the Airtel Uganda’s Head of Brand and Communication, congratulated the day’s winners.
I congratulate everyone who has been a part of this campaign.
Tulumbe AFCON” has attracted participation from across the country.
We have had winners from Isingiro, Mbale, Masindi, Hoima, Masaka and Kampala.
This goes to show the wide reach of both our subscribers and the support for the Uganda Cranes.
Over the course of the campaign, Airtel Uganda has given out 60 Smartphones, 5 iPhones, 28 television sets and 6 air tickets to the first Uganda Cranes game in Gabon.
