Uganda, Kampala, 30th December 2016– Airtel Uganda has today handed prizes worth millions of shillings to lucky winners in third draw of their Tulumbe AFCON campaign. The prize awarding ceremony took place at Airtel Uganda’s office on Clement Hill in Kampala.
Speaking at the handover, Mrs. Remmie Kisakye Kakuru reaffirmed Airtel Uganda’s commitment to football in Uganda.
“Our support for the development of football in Uganda begins at the grassroots with our Airtel Rising Stars platform. That support is further displayed in our sponsorship of the Uganda National Football team; the Uganda Cranes who as you know made history this year by qualifying for the 2017 AFCON tournament.”
“It is upon this win that Tulumbe AFCON was built. Essentially, Airtel is rallying Ugandans to support the Uganda Cranes as they head to Gabon in January 2917,” she added.
Also speaking at the event, Phanindra Nichanametla, Airtel Uganda’s Finance Director congratulated the winners and encouraged the rest of the country to actively participate in the campaign saying, “These winners are from various parts of the country including Mbale, Masindi, Hoima and Bulooba, among others. My hope is that this will encourage everyone across Uganda to participate in Tulumbe AFCON.”
The day’s big winner, Ms. Joan Namazi Sengo took home the coveted ticket for 2 to an all-expenses trip to Gabon come January. Ms. Namazi is also the first female winner of the tickets to Gabon. Barely able to contain her excitement, she expressed her gratitude to Airtel Uganda and support to the Uganda Cranes.
This is the third round of subscribers to benefit from the Tulumbe AFCON campaign.
For one to take part in the campaign, Airtel Uganda subscribers are required to dial *162#, where they have the choice to opt into the campaign by selecting option 1. Customers will then be made aware of their target and will be required to recharge and use Airtel Uganda services up to this target. Upon reaching the targets, subscribers will receive 100% bonus, which, on accumulation, will be rewarded to them as airtime to be used for voice (prepaid), data and SMS.
Participants are entered into a weekly draw where they could win 5 TVs, smartphones, and an iPhone 6 Plus. The grand prize of a pair of tickets to Gabon is awarded fortnightly. Winners will be contacted by Airtel on 0752-600-222.

Miss Uganda 2019 search is on
By Our Reporter
The search for the next Miss Uganda beauty queen is on. This was revealed during a press briefing held at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel on Thursday.
Addressing media, Brenda Nanyonjo, the Kezzi Entertainment director and Miss Uganda CEO, said that registration kicked off on Monday. “We are looking for young and confident girls. On top of the usual attributes like age and height, we will also be keen on personality and character.” She said.
Like the 2018 edition, contestants will be scouted from the different regions across the country. “We will hold regional searches, but because we don’t have ample time, we will be scouting for contestants in two regions on the same day.” Nanyonjo noted.
The lucky candidates will then be heading to boot-camp on July 6th, before the ultimate winner is crowned on July 27 during a ceremony that will be hosted at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel.
Meanwhile, socialite Zari Hassan will return as the Miss Uganda 2019 patron and will also still be one of the judges. The socialite was among the judges of 2018 Miss Uganda beauty pageant where Abenakyo Quiin was crowned. Abenakyo went on to win Miss World Africa crown.
