Lost for words!

That’s Police Corporal Sailosi Vodonaivalu’s first reaction when he received a $50,000 cheque from Vodafone Fiji yesterday.

Corporal Vodonaivalu won the major prize for the Vodafone Christmas Promotion, which was presented at the MHCC Vodafone Outlet in Suva.

Still shocked, Corporal Vodonaivalu said: “I bought a J2 Samsung Prime mobile phone from MH Homemaker in Valelevu, Nasinu, three weeks ago. I received a call from Vodafone last Sunday to bring all my documents and receipt to them.”

“I have never won anything like this before and I’m still shocked.”

The father of one said he was telling his wife this year that his New Year resolution was to get a loan from the bank to buy a piece of land and build a family house before his retirement.

“Today God has heard and answered my prayers. There is no need again to loan money from the bank.”

He also said he was recently promoted as Police Corporal three weeks ago and the win has been a huge blessing on the family.

The 42-year old Police officer also said he was not expecting the big win.

“The Vodafone team did not inform me about this win until today (yesterday). Because I did not think that simply purchasing a phone would give me a $50,000 return.

For his New Year message to the public, he said people need to be honest with their work because God sees everything.

Meanwhile, Vodafone Fiji’s acting chief marketing officer, Nilesh Singh, said 45 prizes were drawn in the duration of their Christmas Promotion from mid-November till yesterday.
