70 readers scoop prizes in ANZ's Read and Win competition

HARARE - At least 70 readers yesterday walked away with a variety of prizes from the Associated Newspapers of Zimbabwe’s (ANZ) Read and Win competition.

ANZ are the publishers of the Daily News, Daily News on Sunday and the Weekend Post.

Wellington Kuchocha of Damofalls, the grand prize winner, was in disbelief as he received an  exquisite TN bedroom suite, Strive Lounge Suite and Royal King Size Bed worth $13 500 in total.

“It’s a surprise, I hadn’t checked the list of winners until I received a telephone invitation yesterday but they didn’t tell me what I had won,” Kuchocha said.

Entries were received between October and February. Prizes ranged from household property, holidays, food hampers and bicycles. Charles Kapfupi, who has been winning since the competition started, said the trick lies in tendering more entries.

“Last year I won a couple of prizes including a washing machine and holidays,” he said.

“You don’t need to do anything, just don’t miss a copy. Read the newspaper of the people, it pays.”

Alice Nhewatewa, who won a lounge suite, said: “I prayed and now I can say there isn’t a god like Jehovah. I love the paper which tells it like it is and the prizes are fair.” Winner Douglas Siziba, who won a smart phone, said “Ndasiya kambudzi neiyi yanga ichifreezer nekuda kwekuverenga irori.”

Sharon Samushonga, ANZ chief operating officer, paid homage to all partners contributing to the success of the competition.

“We believe our relationship will continue as will these competitions,” she said.

“I am also grateful for services provided by our sponsors, auditors and Daily News employees who have made this possible. Without you there would not be this competition.”

Pilate Machadu, ANZ general manager sales and marketing,  said the organisation is set to continue enriching the promotion.

“We cannot divulge much but our readers should brace for surprises for the 2015-2016 Read and Win,” he said. “They should keep on reading and supporting us.”

Tapiwa Mazvimavi, TN group marketing officer, said it was inspiring to support a cause that can change a client’s quality of life.

“It’s amazing how many people have walked away with something today, these are the people supporting the Daily News and us as a company,” she said.

“We advertise in the paper because its always sold out.”

Other sponsors include Gtel, African Sun, Grand Foods, Ideal Furnishers, Braidsfield Hair Salon and The Pointe Restaurant.
