Policeman Lucky With Safaricom Promos Wins 5-Bedroom House

by biasharadigest

Safaricom on Friday 24th January handed over the first apartment in the Lipa Na M-PESA Do More promotion. Turns out, Reuben Keitany has a lucky streak as in 2017 he also won an expensive smartphone in a similar promotion.

Mr Keitany, the Officer Commanding Police Post (OCCP) Samburu Police Post under Taru Police Station, in Kinango sub-county of Kwale County, became the first winner of the three-bedroom apartments located in Nairobi’s Riruta neighbourhood.

“I have been a Lipa Na M-PESA customer for long due to the convenience and affordability of the service when paying for my shopping and when depositing and withdrawing from my bank account,” Mr Keitany said. “Emerging as the first winner of the three-bedroom apartment has come as a sweet surprise and is a great way to start 2020.”

He said he would keep the house as a family home for his wife and 5 children.

It is second time lucky for Reuben who previously won a Neon 4 smartphone in a Safaricom promotion in 2017.

Safaricom also rewarded more than 40 Lipa Na M-PESA merchants with tuk-tuks as part of the promotion, with five businesses in each across the eight regions named among the winners.

“Lipa Na M-PESA has become the most popular and widely accepted alternative to cash in the country due to the convenience of the mobile phone. The promotion seeks to reward our customers for using the service and also seeks to encourage more Kenyans to switch to cashless payments in the war against cash,” said Mr Nicholas Mulila, Chief Corporate Security Officer, Safaricom.

The promotion began on 8th January 2020 and will run to 5th March 2020. Both customers and businesses stand to win more than 600,000 prizes worth hundreds of millions for making and receiving payments on Lipa Na M-PESA. Customers and businesses will receive one entry for every KES 100 paid or received through Lipa Na M-PESA.

Customers also stand to win one of six three-bedroom apartments in weekly draws, while one customer in each of the 8 regions will win a tractor with plough and trailer in the grand draw.

Five businesses in each of the eight regions will win tuk-tuks to boost their business in the weekly draws, while one business in each of the eight regions will win a 12-tonne Mitsubishi Fuso FI truck in the grand draw.
