AFTER three unsuccessful attempts, mother-of-two Namuina Heina has finally won the The National’s masthead competition.
She will use the K250 prize money for her children’s school needs.
Heina, 42, from Rigo district in Central, said her two children needed uniforms.
“My kids need uniforms and school bags so I will use this money to buy those things for them,” Heina said.
“Term two has just begun and I was quite worried, although I work as a (hotel) house keeper. The win is bonus and relief for me. I buy the newspaper daily.”
Her son is in grade nine at the Tokarara Secondary School and the daughter is in grade three at Ororo Primary School.
Another winner, Bernard Piwane from Hela, said he would use the K250 to buy food for his family and extended family members who get food from his house.
He makes a living by selling items near his home at 6-Mile where he lives with his wife and two children.
He had been entering the competition since it started in January.
