Lucky Econet cus­tomer wins M150k prize

Sunday Express - - NEWS - Tokelo Rasephei

THIRTY-FIVE-YEAR old, Nthethe Ts’os­ane, from Ha Le­qele in Maseru re­cently won M150 000 in Econet Tele­com Le­sotho’s ‘ Mat­se­bet­sebe share a mil­lion pro­mo­tion’.

The Mat­se­bet­sebe share a Mil­lion is a pro­mo­tion where cus­tomers stand easy chances of be­com­ing daily and monthly cash and Kwese TV kits win­ners through recharges and SMSes.

There are two ways to qual­ify for the draws. Cus­tomers need to send the word ‘Econet’ to 65100 and play trivia ques­tion and an­swer game. For ev­ery cor­rect an­swer, a cus­tomer col­lects 10 points and 5 point for a wrong an­swer. The points are the cus­tomer’s en­try into the draw and the more one plays, the more their chances of win­ning. Each SMS costs M1.00.

Se­condly, cus­tomers can qual­ify for the draw by recharg­ing air­time onto their phones. Ev­ery M10 recharge gives 1 point and the more one recharges the more the chances of win­ning (ex­cept for air­time trans­fer)

Speak­ing at the han­dover cer­e­mony in Maseru on Fri­day, Ts’os­ane, a sales mar­keter by pro­fes­sion, spoke of his joy in win­ning the com­pe­ti­tion.

He said he en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion by de­posit­ing money into his Eco-Cash ac­count.

“Even though I kept en­ter­ing the Mat­se­bet­sebe pro­mo­tion, I didn’t think I could win so much money,” Tsosane said.

Econet Tele­com Le­sotho’s Prod­uct Man­ager, Tl­haku Mokhethi, said that Econet would con­tinue to em­power its cus­tomers by cre­at­ing plat­forms like the Mat­se­bet­sebe pro­mo­tion.

“The first and sec­ond star prize win­ners have proved that any­one who en­ters the com­pe­ti­tion has a chance to win big prizes,” Mokhethi said, adding, “We hope that the life of the third star prize win­ner will also im­prove”.
