HARARE -
A Harare City Council (HCC) employee, Grace Maravanyika yesterday got a huge surprise when she was handed over a grand prize of a Chevrolet Spark from Kingdom Bank’s ‘‘Win Big with Smart Money’’ promotion at her Mufakose home.

“I cannot believe my eyes and I did not know  I had won but I really want to thank God above all for this wonderful blessing,” said the 65 -year old mother of one, adding that the prize has given her hope for a better tomorrow since she is still recuperating from a stroke she experienced in June last year.

“The competition ‘‘Win Big with smart money’’ was a way of encouraging our customers to make use of electronic transactions for added convenience as well as cheaper transactions.

‘‘When we conducted the draw during the just ended Harare Agricultural Show Maravanyika’s name was drawn out as the grand prize winner,” said Kingdom Bank head of consumer and business banking, Timothy Chikomo, adding the bank had to make a follow-up after she had failed to claim the prize.

Chikomo said Maravanyika is part of 7 000 HCC employees who opened accounts with Kingdom almost two years ago.

Kingdom Bank’s managing director Francois Molife handed over the prize to Maravanyika.

The bank said it had carried out the promotion to reward its customers using cheaper electronic transactions that include funds transfer, retail point of sale (POS) withdrawal, airtime purchases,
e-banking and bill payments among others.

Kingdom Cell Card provides an integrated mobile payment platform through cellphone, point-of-sale, automated teller machines, (ATM) and Internet and debit card.

It offers the convenience of doing banking anywhere anytime as long as there is a mobile network, Internet connection or a Kingdom service point.

During the promotion, customers were urged to carry out at least two electronic transaction a month and maintain a minimum balance of $150 in their Kingdom Bank account or $20 in the Cell Card account for three months in order to stand a chance of winning prizes that also included tablet PC, smart phones and airtime vouchers among others.
