Tuesday, January 8, 2008

Sergeant Alhagie Badgie, a police officer attached to Serrekunda Station, has become the cynosure of admiration and attention from many Africell subscribers and non-subscribers alike after having emerged the winner of the widely- and long-sought-after Africell Dream House. Sgt. Badgie clinched the coveted property at the expense of two other draw mates during the final draw last Friday at Brufut Gardens.

Tijan Jarju, a brother, and other family members represented Sgt. Badgie who was bedridden in hospital at the time of the draw last Friday.

Speaking to GRTS later on Mr Badgie said: “Even if I don’t survive I would be happy that my children would be staying in the house.”

The Dream House is a three-bedroom bungalow with a master bedroom, a dining room attached to the living room. The furnishings included a giant television set with satellite receiver, toilets and a refrigerator among numerous other amenities.

Speaking at the presentation held in front of the dream house, Mr. Badara Mbye, Chief Executive of Africell, said that Africell has been the main contributor in bringing communication devices to the country. According to him every Africell subscriber is already a winner.

Mustapha Njie, CEO of Taf Holdings, the builders of the house, thanked Africell for partnering with his company on the project and revealed that the house was constructed in just two months.

Mr. Papa Leigh, Sales Manager of Africell, moderated the grand draw. He reassured that there are no losers with Africell but only winners.

Meanwhile the two other winners, Ida Isatou Secka and Sophie Jammeh, were each given D50,000 as consolation.

Tijan Jarju thanked Africell on behalf of the family of Alhagie Badgie, for changing their lives.

The family members present were taken on a tour of their new house at the end of the draw.
