The winner of the grand prize in the Bandulo Bandulo promotion received her K10 million prize at Airtel Malawi headquarters in Lilongwe yesterday.
Speaking after receiving the money, the winner Grace Pearson aged 24 thanked Airtel for the prize saying it is a dream come true.
Pearson who works at Central Prison offices as a prison warder said she will use the money to further her education after failing to do so due to lack of school fees.
She added that she will use part of the money to start a business and pledged to continue using and buying Airtel bundles since she got the prize after buying 1GB WhatsApp bundle.
Airtel Marketing Director Frank Magombo said it has been an exciting journey since the promotion began on 15th August to 5th December 2018.
He added that they managed to reach 50 percent of their customers across the country.
“Our aim was to encourage our customers to continue buying bundles which they were using to win different prizes during this period and we have also connected and inspired a lot of people,” he explained.
He went on to say that the customers should expect more promotions from the company and encouraged them to continue using Airtel mobile services.
During the promotion, 1000 winners got K10,000 prizes, other winners got 4GB Mifi routers while 28 Airtel customers won K1 million each.
