How to participate in the Safaricom Shine Kenya Shinda Mamilii Kama Bingwa Promotion

Safaricom has launched a new promotion dubbed ‘Shine Kenya Shinda Mamilii Kama Bingwa Promotion’ to
celebrate customers with daily and weekly cash prizes.

The eight-week promotion will reward over 2.5 million Safaricom customers across the country with a range of prizes and support community projects.

Beyond individual prizes, the weekly millionaires will receive an additional KES 250,000 each, and the grand prize winner will receive an additional KES 1 million courtesy of the Safaricom Foundation to support any community initiative of their choice. This ensures that the benefits of the promotion extend beyond individual winners to uplift entire communities.

“The Shine Kenya Shinda Mamilii Kama Bingwa promotion seeks to celebrate and reward our customers for their resilience, continued support and determination during these challenging times. We are committed to providing affordable solutions and empowering communities, ensuring that true success is shared success,” said
Peter Ndegwa, Chief Executive Officer, Safaricom PLC.

The promotion will have regional launches featuring Nairobi, Greater Western region, Coast/Eastern region, Rift region, and Mt. Kenya/North-Eastern region, engaging customers regionally and ensuring broad participation.

There will be one millionaire weekly from each of the above regions for a period of five weeks, spreading
excitement and rewards across the country. Additional prizes include, instant M-PESA cash prizes, content (Baze Radio and E-Newspapers) and GSM (data, voice, SMS) bundles.
