A Fortebet winner is all smiles after bagging UGX 422 Million from a 2,000shs stake. Whatever praise you may want to heap on to this ticket is in no doubt very much deserving.

Three weeks ago, this winner (identity withheld for security reasons) tried out placing this ticket, not knowing that it will be his life changer.

He says that he was at home, about to go to bed, and decided to place the bet before sleeping off and forgetting all about it. “I placed this ticket at midnight. I wanted to sleep but had no sleep, so I said I should just try out selecting some matches. From that night, I even forgot all about this ticket,” the winner said in an interview.

He went on to add that; “I have been placing ticket for the last 2 years but without a single big win. This is the first time I am winning”. The first matches on his ticket (number 8020866558999999) were played on July 28 while the last on August 13. His 2-match ticket had 13 home wins, 3 away wins, and 4 over 2.5 goals. His ticket was a mixture of fat odds like Arsenal’s win over Chelsea in FA (odd 3.20) and as small as 1.30.”

Talking about how he felt immediately after winning, the winner said; “The Atalanta-PSG almost made me faint because the score was 1-0 upto the 90th minute yet I bet on over 2.5. Unbelievably, PSG scored in the 90th and 93rd minute to earn me the result I wanted.”

Fortebet paid out this win (422, 254, 752/=) to zero balance in cash as the winner wanted.

“I have always dreamt of becoming a big modern farmer and I think this is my time,” he explained on what he will use the money for, while he advised fellow bettors never to lose hope.

By Our Reporter

Have you ever tried to shop online from let’s say Amazon, or eBay for your favorite products and found out that the sites don’t ship to Uganda? It is frustrating.

Shopping from abroad usually involves a lot of red-tapism and this often discourages many from purchasing the things they love, when they want them. Instead they resort to sending friends, family and colleagues that often travel.

With 2Gule, an online shopping platform, that headache of buying goods from aboard could be over. The new platform is promising a cheap, fast, and reliable way to shop from your best international store(s) and have the goods shipped in with a click of a button.

2GULE is here to help you buy what you want, when you want, at the best price and have it delivered straight to you.  They will help you get what you want from the USA, UK or Canada as well as getting around shipping restrictions.

How 2Gule works

When an online retailer doesn’t ship to your country, just use 2GULE.

All you have to do is go online & look for the products you want then visit the 2Gule socials (@2guleofficial) or website (www.2gule.com) & send a link to your product, or just a simple description of the items you want to buy from USA, UK & Canada.

Afterwards, they will send you a quotation with the total cost including; Cost of product, shipping costs & taxes on arrival. You will then be required to pay 60% of the total price after which they buy, ship & pay for your taxes on arrival. You can then pay the 40% after receiving your product from 2GULE.

They will email you as soon as your goods have arrived at their offices in the USA and you can then either choose to have them delivered to you when they get to Uganda, or pick them up from their office.

In the event that you already bought your goods OR have items still stuck in the USA/UK or Canada, they can still help you ship them into Uganda, pay the customs fees and have them delivered them safely to you. Fees range from $8 to $9 per pound of weight (includes shipping fees & tax on arrival).

Aijukwe added, “We are very satisfied with how this close collaboration – a true partnership with the Bushenyi district- has enabled numerous interventions in such a short time, bringing tangible benefits throughout. Our initiatives aim to contribute to the care of the sick as well as to be a sign of appreciation for the exceptional work of those on the front lines: the doctors, nurses and staff who provide essential services, to whom we are so grateful.”

Several people have lost their sources of livelihood due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While many struggle to make ends meet as they grapple with the unprecedented financial disruption, MTN Uganda through its mobile money promotion, is giving back to its customers, in the third edition of its annual promo, MoMo Nyabo.

Dubbed MoMoNyabo together, this promotion seeks to help MTN MoMo customers rebuild together with their loved ones through encouraging them to share their MoMo prizes with their loved ones.

Every weekday, two lucky people win up to Ugx 5,000,000 million shillings while more 250 people win Ugx 50,000 shillings directly on their phones.

Dorothy Kahubire, 30, is one of the lucky people who won Ugx 5,000,000 shillings. The Administrator who was recently laid off at her workplace had been stranded at her friend’s place in Gulu during the lockdown.

When contacted by Zahara Totoo and Patricko Mujuuka, Kahubire was hesitant to believe that she had won Ugx 5,000,000 shillings just like that in such trying times. She however called MTN’s customer care to inquire on whether the number that called her was the official MoMo Nyabo number. It was indeed the official MTN MoMo Nyabo number and the unemployed Kahubire was a millionaire.

This year, MTN has granted its winners the opportunity to share the money won with another person. In this case, Kahubire chose to share her win with her mother. As she took 3,000,000 Uganda shillings, her mother was given 2,000,000 Uganda shillings.

The happy Kahubire shared the money with her mother, Joy Nyabimbiri. “She is my role model and to be able to share this with her is my way of giving back to her,” Kahubire said. An overjoyed Nyabimbiri thanked her daughter for her kind gesture over a phone conversation.

Upon receiving the Ugx 2,000,000 shillings on her Mobile Money account, Nyabimbiri said that she would be able to pay off her debts.

Kahubire is going to invest her share of the money in farming. “I have always wanted to start rearing pigs and with this I will be able to acquire the pigs that I need to start farming,” she said.

Kahubire said she has always used her mobile money to order for things online, buy airtime, and pay for her OTT tax.

Chicken Xpress won 2 million shillings in the MoMo Nyabo draw.

By Our Reporter 

MTN Uganda through its MoMoNyabo Togerther promotion is giving back to not only users of the mobile money service but also businesses that avail their customers the opportunity to pay for products and services using MTN MoMo Pay. The promotion dubbed MoMoNyabo Together is aimed at helping Ugandans rebuild following the financial disruption caused by the Covid 19 pandemic.

Businesses like hotels, pharmacies, fuel stations, supermarkets and more, can take part in the MoMo Nyabo Together promotion by enabling customers to make payments for their goods or services using MTN MoMo Pay.

Chicken Xpress, a fast food joint in Naalya won 2,000,000 UGX worth of mobile money owing to the fact that the business offers its customers the opportunity to pay for their meals using MoMo Pay.

Jemimah Mukimba, one of the Chicken Xpress staff said that most of the Chicken Xpress customers, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resorted to using mobile money to pay for their meals; “In a day we can have over 30 payments through MoMo Pay,” she noted.

While handing over the cheque, MTN’s Merchant payments officer Farouk Lwanga congratulated Chicken Xpress and encouraged other business owners to incorporate the use of MoMo Pay in their payment collection.

He further added that it is safer and convenient especially during the unprecedented times of COVID-19 where handling physical cash is discouraged as it goes through many different hands.

Lwanga also encouraged the general public to embrace the convenience that comes with paying for goods and services using MoMo Pay.

“All you have to do is dial *165# and follow prompts. Alternatively, you can download the MyMTN App so that you can access the MoMo Pay service,” Lwanga said.

Additionally, merchant handlers are winning vouchers for enabling customers to pay using MTN MoMoPay at their outlets.

Customers can use Mobile Money to pay for everything including airtime, data, voice bundles, yaka, water, television subscription and so much more.
