Kenya: EABL Have My Bike - Thika Trader

A businessman in Thika has slammed East African Breweries for failing to give him the prize he won in a competition held last year.

Stanley Wanyoike participated in the Imarisha Maisha Na Senator Keg and won a motorbike on December 7.

Speaking at his work place on Wednesday, Wanyoike said he was called and told that he had won a motorbike at a draw that was conducted in Mukiriti bar, Thika town.

He said he was not in Thika that day and had to go to the Senator Keg Engen deport in the town on the following day.

Aggrey Agoi, who was the emcee at the event in the bar, said Wanyoike was the winner of the motorbike and it was confirmed by the officials who were present.

"I was in charge of presenting the winners with their prizes. There were those who won cash. Those who won motorbikes were two including Wanyoike who was not present at that time," he said.

Geoffrey karanja said he was called to pick a card randomly and he picked one that had Wanyoike's name.

"They would call a person and blindfold him after which he was directed to pick a card from the draw pot. I was called to pick one for the motorbike winner. The emcee told me to read out the name on the card and it was Wanyoike's. The emcee confirmed as well some officials from Senator Keg," he said.

Wanyoike however said when he went to the deport he met the area promotions manager, Nancy Rita, who told him that there are no motorbikes left but he could carry home a generator as it was one of the promotion's prize. He declined the offer and he was told to wait until December 21 when another draw was to be conducted in Murang'a.
