According to Facebook posts on Five Star Car Rental and Mark Ngwazi pages, the competition will run from 1 to 31 July 2022 and two winners will walk way with $50 each and a corporate t-shirts.
One of Mark Ngwazi’s managers Norman Theodore told 263Chat that they are only reacting to what their fans had already got rolling.
“With the #Nyaradzoyababachallenge, we found ourselves conceding to what our fans had already started on their own. It became an amplification and continuation of a challenge that was sparked by our South African fans in early 2021. Our analysis shows that these international fans are mainly from the Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces. As you may be aware, Njanja Express ichurch yepanze, our international fans went into this challenge more than a year before the official release of Nharo Nezvinenharo.

Five Star Car Rental has emerged as one of the best car rentals companies on the market.
“Exellence is in our DNA. We want the best for our clients,” Marwizi added.
