AfriSam Announces Final Bakkie Winner

Harry van der Schyff and Martin Nuttal from Pula BuildIt, celebrating with Pauline Nhlapo.

Pauline Nhlapo from Freestate was blown away when she found out that she won a brand-new Toyota Hilux Bakkie from AfriSam’s “Get Lucky Win a Bakkie Promotion”. The businesswoman has been buying AfriSam All Purpose Cement since early 2019 when she began building a double story house for her family.

Paulina entered the ‘Get Lucky Win a Bakkie promotion’ in March 2020 just before lockdown started by following the easy instructions on the in-store promotional leaflet. During lockdown, Paulina purchased more cement and every time she would follow up to see if the promotion was still on. Months later, in October she received a call from AfriSam, confirming that she was the fourth and final winner of the monthly grand prize- a brand new Toyota Hilux bakkie.

Paulina is the September month winner, following the footsteps of three other winners: Nolubabalo Mboniswa from Libode, East London, Gregory Jerome Kock from Kakamas, Northern Cape and Kalisary Ebrahim from Bellville, Western Cape.

This bakkie will create new opportunities for Paulina who is in the catering business. Paulina is a caterer and supplies to many people and businesses in and around her area. With this bakkie, she will be able to deliver food to her clients without the stress of hiring a trailer to carry heavy loads.

“I would like to thank God and AfriSam for such a beautiful and useful prize,” says Paulina. ‘I can now drive to wherever I want and when I want to extend my house, I’ll be able to carry the cement and materials with my bakkie and not have to pay delivery fees. Also, I can now deliver food and livestock to clients without the worry of hiring a van or trailer to carry heavy loads”, she concluded.

 “At AfriSam, we are grateful that the products we manufacture make a very real difference in our country. But for us it is so much more than just our products or the structures that our products are used for, it is about the possibilities that our products create. We believe in creating concrete possibilities and for Pauline, we hope she can build a big and strong house for her family”, says Michelle Reid, Advertising and Promotions Specialist at AfriSam.

Paulina adds that, “I have heard and seen many people win on radio and television and never thought that one day it would be me. I am profoundly grateful for what the Lord has done for me. May AfriSam continue to host such competitions and reward their loyal customers and clients”.

In the AfriSam Get Lucky, Win a Bakkie promotion, consumers had the chance to win one of four Toyota Hilux Bakkies per month, as well as instant data. The promotion started in March 2020 but was paused at the end of March 2020 due to Covid-19 and the restrictions on construction during lockdown levels 5 and 4. The promotion resumed on 1st July and ended on the 30th September 2020.
