Four winners plan to put their K250 prizemoney to good use, although they were surprised by their win.
This week’s The National masthead competition winners are Mary Kome, Richard Roy, Celestine Loua and Daryle Kalo.
Roy said: “I will use the money to hire an ambulance to bring my father to the hospital. He was amputated. So he can’t get out of bed.”
Kome is using the money to buy her granddaughter a second birthday gift.
Loua is using the cash for her baby, who will be four months old.
“He will be baptised on the Easter Sunday. I will use the money to buy his clothes,” she said.
The three said it was their first time to enter the competition.
“I have stacks of The National newspaper at home. I saw last week’s winners in the paper and decided to try it,” Kome said.
Kalo, from Tauruba in Rigo, Central, said he loved reading The National.
“My dad told me to try the draw and I did it for the first time. I attended church and the pastor said this week was going to be a good week and we were going to see blessings in our lives. I believe this was a blessing and I thank God.”
The masthead competition has four winners every week from around the country and gives away a total of K1000 cash each week.
