Safaricom awards seventh apartment winner as M-PESA Tu promotion ends


27-year-old Eastleigh resident is the final winner in the promotion that has seen thousands of customers rewarded

Nairobi, Kenya – 29th August 2018… Safaricom (NSE: SCOM) has today handed over the seventh apartment worth KES 7.8 million as the Maisha Ni M-PESA Tu promotion draws to a close.

Omar Hassan Muhumud from Eastleigh is the latest homeowner of an apartment located in Nairobi’s Kahawa Estate. The 27-year-old bachelor works as a supervisor at a slaughterhouse in Lucky Summer, Ruaraka.

“I had just arrived at work and I was alighting from a bodaboda when I received a call. I recognized Safaricom’s official number from the advertisements that have been running but I did not know what to expect. Once I was informed that I am the winner of the final apartment, I was excited beyond measure. I have heard about the promotion on radio but I never expected to win anything,” said Muhumud.

Once he receives the keys, Muhumud says he is likely to move in with his family, including the five relatives he currently lives with in Eastleigh’s 12th Street.

M-PESA is an integral part of his life as he uses the mobile money service for both work-related and personal expenses. He uses M-PESA to send his mother, who lives in Mandera, money to cater for her upkeep and medical care. He also uses the service for shopping, making payments and work related purposes such as banking proceeds from sales.
