Lucas Mokaya Bundi wins the final ticket to Qatar to watch this year’s FIFA World Cup in the just concluded Coca-Cola’s FIFA World Cup Buy and Win Promotion in Kenya.
Mokaya won the last grand prize ticket in Coca-Cola’s national consumer promotion that will see him and four other Kenyans get a chance to experience two live matches of the much-anticipated football tournament scheduled to kick off in November 20th in Doha, Qatar.
The 27-year-old resident of Kayole, in Nairobi County who works as a waiter in a local restaurant, couldn’t contain his excitement over the news and what the opportunity means to him.
He will be joining four other winners of the grand prize: Veronica Maweu also from Kayole, in Nairobi County, Wendy Cherop from Nakuru County, Duncan Wekesa from Meru County and William Maore from Mombasa County, on a fully paid trip to Qatar courtesy of Coca-Cola.
The five winners will each receive a package inclusive of a round trip, four nights’ accommodation, all meals catered for, a ticket to two matches of the FIFA World Cup and on-ground transportation for the duration of their stay.
“I have not travelled outside of the country before, and to imagine that my first trip is going to be to Qatar to watch the World Cup, all-expenses paid, is unbelievable. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity,” said Mokaya.
Miriam Limo, Senior Marketing Manager at Coca-Cola, Kenya said they have had a successful consumer promotion and would like to thank everyone who participated. “Special congratulations to Mokaya and our grand prize winners as we look forward to giving them a life-altering experience with this trip to Qatar to watch the FIFA World Cup. We are privileged to be able to give this opportunity to our consumers, right from the viewing experience of the original World Cup trophy earlier in May to sponsoring five Kenyans to experience first-hand the World Cup tournament in Qatar,” she said.
“We hope to deliver a real magical experience for our grand prize winners in Qatar. Moments like these that bring joy to our consumers make our brand proud. We remain committed to creating more magical moments for our consumers through our products and campaigns such as this one,” Limo added.
