The excitement was palpable in Mukono and Jinja towns when beverage giant Coca-Cola handed over 30 prizes to lucky consumers as part of the ongoing Samba Ne Coca-Cola promotion.
The handovers which begun in Mukono town on Saturday last week saw six lucky consumers receive brand new Hisense 32 inch TV screens. The winners included St. Paul’s Catholic Cathedral’s Father Paul Sebitoogo who purchased a crate of soda during the Cathedral charity marathon and received his prize immediately.
Held at Kazimingi grounds, the Jinja town handovers attracted traders from the central market, taxi operators from the nearby park and passers-by who were all excited to see over 30 winners receiving their prizes from Coca-Cola. Other winners in Jinja town walked away with brand new t-shirts, balls and crates of soda for taking part in the promotion.
“We still have exciting prizes and money to hand over to our consumers. Keep drinking and checking under the white crown and we shall bring the prize to you,” commented Coca-Cola Uganda Marketing Manager Mrs. Maggie Kigozi.
Samba Ne Coca-Cola was launched in April this year in partnership with World Cup Official broadcaster Multichoice and Global partner HiSense to bring the World Cup closer to consumers all across Uganda. Since its launch, lucky consumers across the country have been winning Television sets, Multichoice Dishes and Decoders, soccer balls, brand new t-shirts, packs of soda and cash prizes. Over five lucky subscribers have already taken home UGX4,000,000 and two have won the UGX 10,000,000 jackpot so far.
To participate in the Samba Ne Coca-Cola promotion, consumers simply have to purchase a Coca-Cola, Fanta, Sprite, Novida, Krest or Stoney 300ml glass or 500ml plastic bottle bearing a white crown and check under the crown for their exciting prize.
