Islamic University In Uganda student Andrew Mugisha has won Shs75 million in the Uganda Breweries Limited’s (UBL) Kyusa Levo Promotion.
Launched in March 2021, the promotion is part of UBL’s 75th anniversary celebrations, giving back to its consumers for their tremendous support in the last 75 years.
Mugisha, a former law student and irish potato farmer, to him, the reaction was utter shock when he found out that he had emerged the ultimate winner of Shs75 million in UBL’s Kyusa Levo promotion.
“It was lunch time when I received the message, and I immediately lost my appetite. I couldn’t believe it. I lost words. I froze, I went back and counted the zeros. They were too many. Then the next day, the brand manager called me to confirm.” he said
Mugisha, whose drink of choice is Uganda Waragi premium, recently finished his law degree at Islamic University in Uganda and decided to go back to Kisoro his home village to engage in small scale irish potato farming as he awaits his graduation.
He plans to invest the cash into his farming project and hopes that 20 years from now, he will still be able to earn from the cash prize.
“I plan to continue doing what I’ve been doing, but on a bigger scale. I intend to acquire more land and grow more irish. My life has definitely changed and I am super excited for that.”
He added, “I would like to convey a very big thank you to the entire family at UBL and to wish them a happy 75th birthday. To the public, I encourage them to continue participating because the promotion is still going on.”
UBL has also provided a financial advisor to guide Mugisha as he embarks on this journey.
Hillary Baguma, UBL’s brand manager for Mainstream Spirits said, “We are very excited to have gotten the winner of the grand prize. So far, we have given cash prizes to over 72,000 winners from all over Uganda as we continue to give back to our consumers for standing with us throughout the last 75 years and also to give them a helping hand following the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
Mr. Baguma said the promotion will go on up to the 15th of July 2021 and consumers can still win cash prizes ranging from Shs5,000 to Shs7,500,000.
