An irish potato farmer named Andrew Mugisha is the latest winner in the Uganda Breweries Limited’s Kyusa Levo promotion.
Mugisha, who recently graduated with a law degree from Islamic University in Uganda and decided to go back to his home village Kisoro to practice farming, will collect Shs75 million.
“It was lunchtime when I received the message, and I immediately lost my appetite. I couldn’t believe it. I lost words. I froze. I went back and counted the zeros. They were too many. Then the next day, the brand manager called me to confirm,” the farmer whose favorite drink is Uganda Waragi premium, said.
According to Mugisha, the money will be injected into expanding his project.
“I plan to continue doing what I’ve been doing but on a bigger scale. I intend to acquire more land and grow more irish. My life has definitely changed and I am super excited for that,” he said.
“I would like to convey a very big thank you to the entire family at UBL and to wish them a happy 75th birthday. To the public, I encourage them to continue participating because the promotion is still going on.”
Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) has also provided a financial advisor to guide Mugisha as he embarks on this journey.
The promotion, which was launched on the 9th of March, is part of UBL’s 75th-anniversary celebrations as the company gives back to its consumers to appreciate them for moving with them through the last 75 years.
Hillary Baguma, UBL’s brand manager for Mainstream Spirits said, “We are very excited to have gotten the winner of the grand prize. So far, we have given cash prizes to over 72,000 winners from all over Uganda as we continue to give back to our consumers – for standing with us throughout the last 75 years and also to give them a helping hand following the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
He added that the promotion will go on up to the 15th of July 2021 and consumers can still win cash prizes ranging from UGX 5,000 to UGX 7,500,000.
To participate, customers who purchase a 200ml bottle of Uganda Waragi, Bond 7 and V&A should check under the closure for a code, then dial *255*23# and follow the prompts to stand a chance to win.
