South African wins M-Pesa apartment

A South African residing in Kenya has become the second person to win an apartment in the ongoing Safaricom #ticker:SCOM Maisha Ni M-Pesa Tu promotion.

Eric Lindenberg, 49, is the second winner of the Sh7.8 million apartment in a draw held on Tuesday.

The interior design consultant, who lives with his wife and two children in Nairobi, says he moved to Kenya just over six years ago.

He described winning the house as “a pleasant surprise”.

“I found the country undergoing exciting times amidst fast growth and a lot of development, which saw me make the decision to join my family here in Kenya,” he said.

“From my first days, I have come to prefer M-Pesa for most of my transactions as I find it convenient to use my phone when paying for fuel, shopping, making payments to other people and for booking the SGR on regular family trips to the Coast.”

James Njagi, an artisan at Gikomba Market, was the first person to win an apartment under the promotion.

She said the promotion will continue for the next five weeks during which the company will seek to reward more customers for their loyalty.
