Lucky Telecel subscriber wins a house
A lucky Telecel subscriber was presented with the keys to a brand new house after winning one of the three houses in Telecel’s Win A House promotion which is offering three new houses as grand prizes as part of its ongoing SMS and recharge based promotion.
19 year-old teenager Ms Fadzai Jeche who lives in Mkoba, Gweru, is the first subscriber to win one of the three houses in the promotion which also has airtime and weekly cash prizes as consolation rewards for subscribers.
“I am very excited to have won this house and it came as a surprise to me and my family as I had not expected to win,” said the excited teenager.
Telecel’s Communications and Branding Director, Obert Mandimika, while speaking at the prize handover ceremony for the house encouraged subscribers to continue to take part as the promotion was still on going and there were still two more houses and other consolation prizes to be won.
“I am happy to be handing over this house to our lucky customer and I would like to take this opportunity to encourage the rest of our customers to take part in this promotion which is still on-going as there are two more houses to be won amongst other prizes,” said Mr Obert Mandimika
There are also cash prizes of $100 each for 10 participating and winning subscribers awarded every week of the promotion. There is also up for grabs airtime awarded to 50 subscribers daily for the duration of the promotion.
Winners of the daily and weekly prizes were announced during the course of the promotion.
Telecel subscribers wishing to take part in the promotion opt-in by dialling *33330# to register. Once they are successfully registered for the competition they will receive a notification confirming their competition enrolment. Registration for this is free.
