Airtel Uganda flagged off four of the ten AFCON all-expenses paid for ticket winners at Entebbe International Airport as part of the ongoing Sukuma Cash promotion. The four lucky winners travelled to Egypt to watch Uganda Cranes play live during the AFCON games.
The group of four was seen off on Friday night by Airtel Uganda’s Remmie Kisakye, Head of Brands and Communications and Mr. Andrew Rugamba Head of Financial Services ahead of the Sunday game between the Uganda Cranes and Egypt.
The team of four that travelled for the AFCON games hadMoses Ebuku Silver –a mobile money agent from Oyam district, Peter Esele –an Airtel money customer from Kira municipality, Ronald Domu, a dealer in waste papers at Nasser road and Isaac Mawanda, an Airtel money agent from Butambala district left Entebbe airport at 4am (Saturday) for Cairo where they watched the Cranes taking on hosts and record 7-time champions Egypt on Sunday at the Cairo international stadium.
Ronald Domu who works at Nasser road had no passport by the time he received a call from Airtel-Uganda and the excitement ahead of his first flight could not be held back.
“I thank Airtel-Uganda for the opportunity to fly. I had no passport and they helped me get one. I thought it was not real when I received a call that I had won a trip to AFCON but then when I called customer care numbers and I got proof, I could not hold back the excitement. I want to see Liverpool FC’s Mohammed Salah live in action and many other stars,” noted Domu.
“I just used Airtel Money to pay for bills, buy airtime and data as well as sending and receiving money. Then my number was drawn in the ‘Sukuma cash’ promotion to win. Others win cash daily,” he added.
The four will also visit exciting places in Egypt on their tour with all expenses paid by Airtel-Uganda.
