Set to climax in the third week of July, another lady from Entebbe grabbed herself a new Toyota Wish as the 22nd lucky winner of the car in the on going Tukonectinge campaign courtesy of Crown Beverages Limited (CBL).
Surprised, was Falidah Namukabire a resident of ‘Abayita ababiri’,Entebbe as she never expected to own a car in her life though she is self employed. Falidah operates a mobile money business and a video library.
Upon recieving the car keys on July 11, “I operate a mobile money business and run a video library at the same time. However, owning a car was something I have never anticipated to achieve in my life,” said Falidah.
To be this lucky, she said she “couldn’t recall the number of times” she sent the Tukonectinge codes. Fortunately she “had hopes to be called for any random gift” in the weekly TV draws.
In the past, Crown Beverages limited has established and managed such successful promotions among others; Motozela, Chamuka Keys, Mirindarific, Sala Puleesa, Twangula in which consumers of; Pepsi, Mirinda and Mountain dew have won cars and lots of prizes.
“This year’s promotion aimed at deepening the existing relationships and creating new ones across the country, through the Tukonectinge promotion,” narrated Liz Ruth Adong, Entebbe sales manager, CBL.
“Today we are handing over the car to Namukabire, while yesterday we handed over the other car to Nabembezi in Makindye,” Ruth added.
The campaign has seen Pepsi giving out cars to individuals in different parts of the country, among others; Lira, Kole, Kyenjojo, Rukungiri, Mbarara, Mubende, Jinja, Busia, Aleptong, Ibanda, Rubaga, Namugongo and Masaka. Of 22 car recipients, 13 are male and 9 are female. The 24 car is to be given to CBL soft drinks consumer with the highest number code shares, and the 25th car will be won by the participant with the highest number of codes sent. Apparently, one can as well win as an individual sender without pairing.
