Iyasa dazzles at Coca-Cola draw

BULAWAYO - Award-winning Bulawayo dance group Iyasa enchanted the big crowd that witnessed 49 people walk away with prizes worth $14 900 during the Coca-Cola Summer Splash Grand Draw held in Bulawayo on Saturday.

The well-travelled group, which blends comedy, dance and music, delivered a well-choreographed performance that went some way in proving why it has become the favourite of many in Zimbabwe and beyond.

Iyasa’s colourful and captivating performance added lustre to a special day in the City of Kings on which 25 people won $100 each with 13 walking away with $300 each.

The prize-laden day, also saw five lucky Bulawayo citizens pocketing $500 each while six very lucky ones went home with a thousand dollars each.

The Bulawayo event, part of a series of Coca-Cola Summer Splash draws that began on November 1 last year, also saw scores of people who graced the event winning free drinks, T-shirts and caps.

Coca-Cola country manager, Honest Marandu told the Daily News that the competition was a thank-you to Zimbabweans for supporting his company’s brand.

“Today Coca-Cola celebrates the success of the $80 000, Summer Splash promotion, a campaign which was geared towards assisting Zimbabweans with cash, thereby enhancing their new year,” he said.

“The promotion system is one reason to affirm our belief in Zimbabwe and indeed, in Africa’s potential.

“Central to the promotion is the simple notion of enjoying an ice-cold Coca-Cola and taking a small break from the day to connect with family and special friends while winning prizes,” Marandu said.

To date, ever since the draws began on November 1 last year, over 86 consumers have won $100 each, 39 have pocketed $300 each with 21 winning $500 each.

In grand draws held in Mutare, Harare and in Bulawayo, 17 consumers won $500 each with 20 lucky customers pocketing $1 000 each.
