Winnings enable man to send son back to varsity

2016-10-26 06:00

A CELL C subscriber from Port Elizabeth will be able to send his eldest son back to university after winning R500 000 in the Cell C Mega Hour competition.

Nzamo Goduka (52) had to withdraw his son from university due to financial constraints. Thanks to Cell C, he is now able to put his son’s future back on track.

Goduka, who works at a removals company, has been with Cell C since 2004 as a prepaid customer and played Mega Hour whenever he had airtime.

“I am thrilled with my winning and will use the money to buy a house and take my two children to university. I am very pleased to be able to take my eldest son back to university as he had to drop out last year due to financial constraints,” said the overjoyed Goduka.

Muneer Abader, Senior Manager: Regional Commercial Sales, said at the cheque handover, “Cell C have had six grand prize winners from various backgrounds over the past four years, varying from R500 000 to R1 million.

“From a breadwinner looking after her family, to a retired husband and father whose business had closed down, the prize money has been life-changing for all the winners. Like Cell C, Mega Hour is also about changing lives and giving back to the community.”
