Africell presents prizes to Ramadan promo winners
Winners in the ongoing Africell ‘Find the Hidden Treasure’ Ramadan Promotion were presented with their cash, material and consolation prizes at the company’s 1 Pivot Street, Wilberforce Headquarters. A total of sixty-seven winners were rewarded for their loyalty by Africell on Wednesday 25th August 2010. The company has however increased the star prize in the ‘Cave’ from Le20m to Le40m. This is because nobody has been fortunate to win the previous Le20m last week. According to Africell’s Media Relations Supervisor, Tom Terry Coker, the company will make another increase to Le60m if nobody wins the Le40m that is currently in the Treasure Cave.
As one of Sierra Leone’s number one GSM operators, Africell Lintel (SL) Limited continues to make development strides in the country’s history. In spite of the fact that they were awarded as the best GSM Company by the organization, All Works of Life (AWOL), the company has positioned itself in developing Sierra Leone.
After extending ‘Zakat’ (Alms giving) to the Muslim community in Port Loko, a similar donation was made on Wednesday 25th August 2010 in Moyamba by Africell’s Head of Research and Intelligence Unit, Abdul Sannoh.
