Malawi’s mobile and ICT services provider, TNM, has launched a promotion dubbed Tikolole in celebrating the harvest season.
Among prizes, TNM will give out K1 million each to 30 people while 50 people will be winning K100, 000 every month.
The promotion was launched in Lilongwe on Wednesday where the company also unveiled its seven new brand ambassadors dubbed TNM Youth Stars of Malawi below 22 which included musician Eli Njuchi.
TNM Chief Executive Officer Arnold Mbwana said the promotion is in line with the report that was submitted to President Lazarus Chakwera that the country will have a bumper harvest which calls for celebration.
“Our purpose is connecting society, creating possibilities and changing lives. That is why we are happy to make everyone a winner in this Tikolore Promotion and people’s lives shall definitely be changed,” he said.
Mbwana further said every customer that recharges with at least K200 will enter the weekly, monthly and grand draws and stand a chance to win cash.
Every person who recharges with a minimum of K100 will win free minutes, data and SMSs.
Minister of Youth and Sports Ulemu Msungama commended TNM for the noble tasks.
He also commended the company for identifying the young brand ambassadors, saying they will act as role models and inspiration to others.
“The engagement of these youth stars will promote Malawian culture and talent in a way that will inspire others, not only youths but even older people to aspire for more,” he said.
One of youth TNM ambassadors, poet Tamanda Kanjaye said it is a great opportunity that TNM has given her.
The promotion will run from April 1 to July 1 2021.
