Mzuzu, January 25: First K1 million winner in the Airtel Malawi’s Kuufira Summer Bonanza in the northern region says he will enable his parents have a feel of living in a decent iron sheet roofed house for the first time.

Speaking Wednesday in Mzuzu during the handover ceremony of the prize money, Chifundo Nanseta based in Chiputula Township in the city said he would use part of the money to buy iron sheets for his parents’ house in his home village in Salima District.

“This is the first time to have such an amount of money at once in my life. I’ll make sure I spend the money wisely so that in future I should be able to point at what I did with the prize money.

“My parents are living in a dilapidated house back home in Salima. So I will buy iron sheets and construct a good house for them,” Nanseta said.

The youthful winner, who passed Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) last year, added that he would use part of the money to further his education.

Airtel Malawi’s Northern Region Zone Business Manager, Gerald Kanthungo said he was excited that the region had produced the first winner in the promotion.

“We are excited that we have produced the first winner of the K1 million here in the north.

“As a company we believe this money will go long way to improve his life and we are excited to hear that he intends to even assist his parents back home,” Kanthugo said.

The promotion started on December 1, 2017 and will finish on March 1, 2018. Every week one lucky winner receives K1 million while five others pocket K200, 000 each.

In the final draw at the end of the promotion, first, second and third lucky winners will pocket K5 million, K3 million and K2 million, respectively.
