Botswana Telecommunications Corporation (BTC) continues to make strides to empower communities and Batswana. This week the telco giant awarded a loyal customer, who won the Recharge to Win competition with a brand-new Toyota Land Cruiser over P 400 000.00.
The loyal customer, Ms Tawana Professor, a farmer from Shashe-Mooke participated in the BTC Recharge to win Competition. For one to participate in this competition they have to recharge with BTC airtime worth P30 or more using BTC channels such as Vouchers, Virtual channels, Bank Top up, Nthope, Mobile APP and SMEGA. The higher the recharge frequency, the higher the chances of one walking away with prizes.
Handing over the car, in the presence of the area MP responsible for Gaborone Central, Tumisang Mangwegape-Healey, the BTC Managing Director (A), Aldrin Sivako said BTC celebrating 40 years of progress and anchoring the National economy, would not have made any progress had it not been for its stakeholders especially its valued customers. ‘It is for this reason that as we celebrate our 40th anniversary and our accomplishments over the years that we pause and acknowledge those who have made us who we are.
It brings us great joy at BTC to change the lives of our customers and contribute to the socio-economic development of our country. Even better making a difference during these trying times of COVID-19,” he said.
The competition winner Professor was excited after winning the brand-new vehicle, stating that she was not anticipating it and that the Land Cruiser will help her carry out farming activities, “I am so excited and still can’t believe that I have won. I will now be able to run my business errands smoothly especially at the farm”, she said.
The telco giant which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, has already handed over two of the three cars to its loyal customers. The first car, a Toyota Corolla Hatch was won by Mr Dan Kapeko in June this year. Customers still stand a chance to win a Toyota Legend 50 and weekly cash prizes of up to P4000.00.
BTC continues to empower its customers and Batswana at large through various initiatives. In the past six years BTC Foundation has spent a staggering P6 million developing and supporting various citizen driven initiatives in the country.

The Botswana Public Officers Fund (BPOPF) is now mandated by law to have pension fund administration and investment management conducted by independent licensed entities.
This means that these functions must be fully outsourced. This became necessary due to the enacting by Parliament of the Retirement Funds Act in 2014 (RFA Act) and the promulgation of subsidiary legislation governing the RFA Act by the Non-Bank Financial Institutions Regulatory Authority (NBIFIRA).
Therefore, the outsourcing project name coded Gata Le Rona journey comes to completion as the BPOPF hands over fund administration outsourcing services to NMG Administrators Botswana. NMG Administrators Botswana will be collecting contributions on behalf of the BPOPF, maintain all Member records, payment of claims, permit any excess cash to the BPOPF for investment and manage pensioner payroll. The BPOPF remains committed to building brighter futures together.
Following a significant 19-month long transition journey, the Botswana Public Officers Pension Fund (BPOPF), officially handed over fund administration services to NMG Administrators Botswana, as the outsourcing project comes to fruition. The project, which began in October 2019, commenced following amendments to the Retirement Funds Act (Section 15 (i).
Effective 2 June 2021, NMG Administrators Botswana will collect contributions on behalf of the BPOPF, maintain all Member records, payment of claims, permit any excess cash to the BPOPF for investment and manage pensioner payroll.
Noted CEO of the BPOPF, Mr. Moemedi Malindah, “This is a large-scale project and one we are proud to say was managed with the utmost diligence, with our Members at heart in all that we did and indeed continue to do. The BPOPF continues to engage all key stakeholders to ensure this transition is a smooth one.
Members can be rest assured that their pensions and benefits are not affected as NMG Administrators Botswana takes over the day-to-day fund administration tasks. This is a bright new chapter and we are more than ready and confident in the future.”
NMG Administrators Botswana is a joint venture between Lecha Administration (a company owned 100% by the BPOPF) and NMG South Africa. Lecha Administration owns 51% shares and NMG South Africa owns 49% shares in NMG Administrators Botswana.
“Re a leboga, Batswana, for your patience and support; especially our valued Members. We remain committed to investing in your golden years and building a brighter future together,” concluded Malindah.
