Airtel Uganda has announced a 90-day Airtel Money promotion during which subscribers sending money within the network will enjoy a major discount in tariffs.

The new tariffs have been streamlined up to 60 per cent with three prices respectively; Shs100, Shs500 and Shs1,000 across all bands effective today. The reduction applies to sending money (Person To Person).

In the promotion dubbed SUUKUMA CASH, 22 customers and 3 agents stand a chance to win Shs500,000 daily upon sending money worth any amount in the 90-day duration.

In addition, 10 subscribers will stand a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to watch the Uganda Cranes live at AFCON in Egypt.

According to the Airtel Uganda Managing Director, Mr. V.G. Somasekhar, the promotion is an addition to the convenience and instant solutions the platform offers especially during this Ramadan Season.

“Airtel Money subscribers can conveniently and instantly do so much more in a reliable and secure manner using their mobile phones. By lowering the cost of these transactions, an increased number of Ugandans will get access to affordable and basic financial services. We are as well simplifying alms giving (Zakah),” Mr Somasekhar said.

Mr Somasekhar, however, noted that withdrawal tariffs among other fees, will remain unchanged during the promotion period.

Castle Lite, Africa’s biggest premium beer brand is, in 2020, welcoming an epic new era which looms for the Castle Lite Unlocks experience – the most notable Hip-Hop experience in Africa.

As Castle Lite Unlocks returns for a hallmark edition in 2020, the brand has taken a bold and unprecedented move in a bid to do things differently this year and truly Unlock Extra Cold Refreshment for Hip-Hop lovers.

Renowned for being the biggest supporter of the Hip-Hop movement in Africa, Castle Lite will release a limited number of Early Bird tickets this week. These tickets will begin selling at the jaw-dropping price of R50 and will increase by an additional R50 every 30 minutes. So, the longer you wait to snatch up your tickets the more expensive they will become. But there is a catch!

Devoted fans of the Castle Lite Unlocks movement will have to purchase these Early Bird tickets prior to finding out who this year’s headlining act will be. This dynamic pricing model gives our consumers the ultimate opportunity to experience Unlocks for a fraction of the regular cost while relying on the concert’s reputation to bring the biggest stars in the world to South Africa.

In case you’re wondering who the 2020 headlining megastar will be, you need only wait a few more days. All that the brand can reveal at this point is that the flamboyant multi award-winning and record-breaking artist who yields a global fan base and reach will not only bring their unique flair to Mzansi, but they will also mark a big shift in the way Castle Lite has done things before.

Be sure to get your hands on the special Early Bird tickets at www.castlelite.co.za on Thursday, 20 February starting from R50 at 15:00. The tickets will then increase in price by R50 every 30 minutes until 19:30 when the brand will reveal the international headliner. Once done, fans will have to buy regular Castle Lite Unlocks 2020 festival package tickets at a later stage.

“Castle Lite Unlocks is in its 10th year now and has seen a decade of extraordinary musical talent, a celebration of a culture which has captivated the world and also brought African Hip-Hop to the fore. It is now time to step things up and take Unlocks to new heights while paying homage to the culture of Hip-Hop in Africa,” said Castle Lite Brand Director, Silke Bucker.

“And what better way to usher in the next decade for Unlocks than to give our consumers the opportunity to be the first to purchase tickets at an unprecedented price to the biggest Hip-Hop experience in Africa, headlined by their favourite international act,” she continued.

NSSF MD Richard Byarugaba

By Our Reporter

The National social security Fund has asked all its members (employers and
employees) in the Western region to embrace and skillfully utilize their available technological innovation especially their online channels and platforms. This was accentuated during the NSSF western regional employer meeting which was held at Hotel Triangle in Mbarara on Tuesday.

This meeting was the fourth in the Western region and the second of its kind to take place in Mbarara town. The NSSF Western belt is comprised of districts like Masaka, Mbarara, Bushenyi, Kanungu, Kabale Kisoro and Fort portal.

“We must accept that the environment of doing business has changed due to the sophisticated technological progressions that are happening now, we as NSSF, have pushed for a paperless economy in all our branches, therefore we request all our customers to appreciate our e-services for a better service delivery,” Managing Director, Mr. Richard Byarugaba said.

The Fund’s current statistics show that 70% of their members access their services such as self-registration, clearing remittances and checking balance statements via their online portal whereas only 30% are still visiting the branches for services.

According to Mr. Geoffrey Ssajjabi, NSSF Head of Business, this percentage is promising but it’s not their target, therefore, for them to be able to hit their intended target of 100% e-services, members have to appreciate the existing Fund’s online channels and interact with them more often.

Mr. Byarugaba highlighted the key importance of the online tools such creating customer satisfaction, saves money and time, staff and customer convenience.

Members in the Western region have expressed their sincere gratitude to the fund for always being transparent and interactive with its members on issues that need clarity.
