Speaking after the draw, Airtel Malawi acting sales and distribution manager, Misheck Kavuta, said they were excited that people from all the regions were benefitting from the promotion.
According to Kavuta, since the inception of the promotion the network company has been registering more new customers.
“It feels great that we have made the first four millionaires in the promotion today, we are also excited that we are getting new customers each passing day since the promotion started.
“Considering that our customer base is still increasing, we have introduced a new number range that starts with 098 on top of the usual number range that starts with 099,” said Kavuta.
He further said ‘Airtel Yabeba’ is a consumer promotion designed to reward customers after hitting 5 million subscribers in December last year.
One of the winners, Zebron Chaponda, said he was so happy for being one of the winners as he never expected to win such a huge amount, adding he will venture into business.
In his remarks, acting director of operations at the National Lotteries Board (NLB), Lawrence Chikoko, said it was good that Airtel Malawi decided to give back to its customers through the promotion and emphasized the board will make sure that all the deserving winners have gotten their prizes.
