Magdalene Atieno @ 5/12/2012 - 09:02

Bonyeza ushinde is game like a poll table game. when you put your money in the table and you start playing, you can win or your college win you and he can win you a million times until you become from something to nothing or the opposite way. What I can help you is that we go on with bonyezaring until the last day of 14th December 2012 trying our best praying to our Almighty father in heaven. This is because it is not our bonyezaring which can make us to win, it is not safaricom, it is not the computer but HE IS ONLY THE ALMIGHTY FATHER IN HEAVEN. About those people asking what people do to have many points, here is the answer; when you finish answering the 5 questions, you go on sending your name as many times as you can and the computer will go on adding you points. Me I have3000 points and I will go on with bonyezaring trying my best and if I will not win, I be satisfyed and wait next time. THANKS FOR YOUR PARTICIPANTION IN THE BONYEZA USHINDE NA SAFARICOM. GOOD TIMES FOREVER.
IGNATIUS NDUNG'U @ 27/11/2012 - 20:05

Stella Siele @ 8/11/2012 - 18:31

i have been participating in answering all the five questions since the promotion started and i have managed to accumulate 1200 points. i have not been missing many questions and am surprised there are guys with more than 2000 points how do they get more points that the maximum of all correct five questions plus 100 registration points. whats the secret to earn more points and then how come some with very few points get the price. personally i have never won even a 100 bob airtime. what the secret behind all this.
