BLANTYRE, (CAJ News) –– A Malawi tea-estate employee will be the first person in the country to drive a luxury Nissan vehicle.

Harry Assima has emerged the winner of the luxury Nissan Qashqai for correctly voting the Africa Cup of Nations 2015 Goal of the Tournament fan competition.

The automaker said the conclusion of the competition comes after Nissan, the official automotive sponsor of AFCON 2015, presented the Goal of the Tournament trophy to Ghanaian left winger Christian Atsu for his stunning strike against Guinea in the quarter-final of the tournament.

The winner of the fan competition was randomly selected from 16 000 entries after Atsu was named winner of the Goal of the Tournament trophy.

The competition ran throughout the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations tournament and allowed fans to cast their votes for the best and most exciting goal on the SuperSport website.

Once CAF announced Atsu as the Goal of the Tournament scorer, all votes for this goal were entered into a draw and the winner was randomly selected.

Assima, a stores controller at Lujeri Tea Estates in Mulanje, won the stiff contest.

The vehicle will be handed over to Assima in Mulanje later this month.

He is thrilled.

“This is the first car I’ve owned. I will treasure it, as it was my first stroke of fortune and consider this my marriage present as we have only been married for three months,” he said.

“I will use it to go on journeys and drives with my
wife. I am always in town over the weekends so I will have an experience with the vehicle.”
