MTN To Re-draw ‘Win Beeg’ Promotion

MTN To Re-draw ‘Win Beeg’ Promotion

It was a Fraud, MTN decides to do a RE-DRAW of the competition !
In an effort to restore customer confidence in its promotions, MTN Zambia has announced that it will re-draw a new winner of the 1 billion kwacha under the Win Beeg promotion.

This is follows revelations of fraud in the selection of the grand prize winner of the promotion.
The Drug Enforcement Commission has since instituted investigations against winner of the MTN Win BEEG promotion, Namuchana Sinuma and an MTN IT specialist, Jones Ilukena.

It is alleged that Ilukena, who purportedly had an affair with Namuchana, winner of the win beeg promotion, manipulated the system which led to her winning the grand prize of K1 billion.

MTN Chief Executive Officer Abdul Ismail says the promotion was introduced in good faith and was aimed at genuinely empowering the winner but that it is so unfortunate that such a situation occurred.

Mr. Ismail told a media briefing in Lusaka this afternoon that the re-draw will be conducted after investigations are concluded in the fraud allegations.

He says the telecommunications company will cooperate with investigative agencies over the matter as it has a zero tolerance policy on corruption or fraud of any kind.

Mr Ismail could however not give out more information on the case noting that it is still under investigations.

    You have no guarantee this won’t happen again! the IT man wrote this same programme and knows how to manipulate it and i am sure the other IT people at MTN can also figure it out

    Whatever their terms and conditions say, fraud is not expected from them! Everyone who entered did so as MTNhad solicited and entry was automatic at recharge of K 5,000, so everyone who was entered had a clear chance of winning, but for the fraud! A redraw does not absolve MTN, the best they could do is refund their customers, failure to which the customers should sue them and their auditors for breach of trust.
