A JOBLESS woman has won a new car after sending 19000 text messages – at a combined cost of R28000 – in a competition.
Nomandiyephi Botha, from Lady Frere in the Eastern Cape, won a Citroen C1 worth about R130000 in the competition organised by the SA Traditional Music Achievement (Satma) Awards in East London earlier this month.
The 33-year-old said she used R11000 she had just received from a stokvel. Her husband, sister and brother also helped by getting her more airtime. – Sapa
