Annette Nambi his cousin was also quick to add to his statement that the tomatoes and cabbage farmer is to be the first person in their family to drive.

Byansi was given his Toyota Noah on Wednesday at Namulesa Market along the Jinja- Kamuli road. Just like those that won before him Byansi participated in the Sala Puleesa promotion and on the Sunday night of November 13th, 2016, he was called during a live draw and given news of him win.
“I was planning to go to bed, that’s when I received a call and I was told I had won a car. At first I thought it was a lie until this caller insisted. And because I had watched a show where they call people to pronounce them winners, I could recall the voice. I just sat down and for a number of minutes, I could not talk until they called me back to ask me about my details, “said Byansi.
Byansi says he is going to use the car to make money to enrich his tomatoes and cabbages farm.
“I have been looking for resources to help me improve my farm, and look God has answered my prayers, he has brought the opportunity though Sala Puleesa, thank you Pepsi,” added Byansi.
