A fortunate man from Kericho is the pleased proprietor of a fresh out of the box new BMW x1 esteemed at Sh4.3 million after the finish of the ‘Red Dot’ consumer Promotion by East African Breweries Limited (EABL).
Franklin Korir, 33, who works at Elgon Tea Industry/ Factory, told CNN News Portal (Wakenya) that he had never thought of winning anything in his life.
The fortunate winner reviewed how a while back he purchased a couple containers of Smirnoff Vodka and in light of the fact that he had seen the ads he chose to attempt his good fortune.
“I am going to give my old car to my wife and I will be driving this state-of-the-art luxury car to Kericho,” said Franklin.
A few days after the fact when he got a call telling him that he was the winner of the promotion, Mr Korir expelled the guest as a fraudster out to con him of his cash.
“The persistent caller kept calling me everyday with the same message that I was the winner of the car. I talked to a few friends who told me to come to Nairobi and find out. It was when I reached EABL headquarters that it finally occurred to me that indeed I was the winner,” Franklin said.
This was the second Red Dot Promotion, which saw more than 11,000 customers winning different prizes. This years promotion pulled in additional than 290,000 individuals that took part in the promotion by trying their luck.
