A Clinical Officer from Machakos County, Eric Musyoki Musembi is the first winner of the Ksh. 1 million monthly grand prize in the ongoing Gomoka na Go Monthly Promotion by Safaricom.
Mr Musembi says the money will be a great cushion for him during these current challenging economic times. As a firstborn in a family of five, he is tasked with the responsibility of taking care of his aged parents and younger siblings and the money will come in handy when doing that. He will also use the money to finish up personal projects, settle a few debts and possibly start some small income-generating activities in their home.
“When I received a call from Safaricom’s official line informing me I had won, I was excited beyond measure. I heard about the promotion in the media, and I participated by purchasing All-in-One bundles and spinning the wheel. I had won data bundles before, but I never expected to win a million shillings,” said Eric Musyoki.
Safaricom launched the promotion in June this year to empower customers with affordable data packages as well as purely enriched minutes plan and the opportunity to win substantial prizes. These prizes include data bundles; instant M-PESA cash prizes ranging from Ksh. 250 to Ksh. 10,000 with a grand prize of Ksh. 1,000,000 every month. Additionally, customers get more control of their spending, more value for their money and worry-free monthly connection.
So far, more than 186,000 customers have won daily instant cash prizes in the first month of the promotion. The promotion will run until September 18th, 2023.
