Byukusenge said that the promotion campaign looks at BK’s clients who use their BK Mastercard debit or credit cards online or via Point of Sale (POS).
She said that all BK clients who make a single transaction worth Rwf25, 000 and above using their cards online are eligible to win different prizes.
“We are in the final stages of the campaign and more clients with MasterCards should participate to win the grand prize of the car,” she said.

“A client can request and get the card in just one day from the nearest BK branch across the country,” she said.
John Baptist Nkuranga, one of the awarded clients, welcomed the award.
“I use MasterCard in my daily transactions. It was a surprise to me when a staff from BK called me telling me that I had won a motorcycle. This is a timely campaign and the motorcycle will help me in my daily business activities,” he said.
Huguette Uwimana, another winner added: “One day I went to deposit money in BK and the next thing I was selected as a winner in the Mu Munyenga na Mastercard campaign. Since then I committed to use MasterCard more than usual. I am calling upon other clients to participate. BK delivers better service and its clients should leverage it. I am happy to be one of the winners.”
