Lilongwe-based secondary school teacher Ishmael Kayera has become the fourth winner of K2 million monthly prize in the ongoing TNM Zampira Promotion.
The Silver Strikers supporter, who teaches at Sendwe Community Day Secondary School (CDSS), correctly predicted Mighty Mukuru Wanderers’ recent 1-0 win over Mafco FC in the TNM Super League in August.
After being informed about his luck through a phone call during the monthly draw in Blantyre on Friday, Kayera said he was excited to be the winner.
As per the rules of the competition, the winner is supposed to get K1 million while the remainder has to be used for the purchase of football equipment for a school of his choice and Kayera has decided to give it to Sendwe CDSS.
“I am glad to have emerged winner in this promotion. I did not expect it. This money has come at the appropriate time when I am in the process of building a house,” he said.
TNM corporate affairs manager Limbani Nsapato said over 1.4 million supporters participated in the promotion in August and the league sponsor is satisfied with the progress of the 2023 edition.
He said the integrated mobile and ICT services provider is impressed with the level of activities in the promotion after a four-month run.
“As a passionate sponsor of Malawi’s elite football league, we introduced Zampira Promotion to actively engage and excite football fans in the sport. We are pleased with the participation as supporters are demonstrating great passion and knowledge of the domestic league,” he said.
Commenting on overall progress of the TNM Super League, Nsapato said the 2023 has come with surprises.
“We are happy to see teams such as Chitipa United showing impressive performance. With at least 10 weeks to go, Chitipa is topping the log table and that is the news we love to hear,” he said.
