"We want to ease the issue of cash transaction off the shoulders of our many good subscribers. This is why we brought in this service called the Mobile Money.

"Now it is time to sensitize our subscribers, so we thought it wise to organize these tournaments," he amongst other things added."

Meanwhile, the grand finals of the games were on within press time.
