Blantyre City Mayor Noel Chalamanda on Wednesday attended the unveiling of netball star Mwawi Kumwenda to be the new airtel “it’s now” campaign brand ambassador with the purpose of inspiring Malawians through her success stories.
The ceremony, which was also graced by Business Consult Managing Director Henry Kachanje among other dignitaries, took place in Blantre City at Protea Ryalls Hotel.
Over 3.5 million Airtel costumers voted the celebrated netballer to be the campaign brand ambassador.
Airtel Acting Marketing Director, Charles Kamoto, said Mwawi is someone who has used her potential to reach greater heights by leading the Malawians Queens to several victories.
After being unveiled, Mwawi said she was excited to receive her role at airtel and she hopes that her success stories will bring a positive impact to Malawians.
“I always train and work hard to improve and perfect my game so that I remain on top of my game and above competition and am willing to share this ideology with my new Airtel family,” said Mwawi.
Last year, Airtel unveiled Manchester City and Ivorian national soccer team star Yaya Toure as the campaign’s ambassador.
