47 year-old Mariekie Duncan from Brakpan couldn’t believe her ears when she received the news that she had won a brand new bakkie, courtesy of Afrikaans insurance brand, Virseker and Huisgenoot Skouspel.

“I have been without transport for years. My father, who is a pensioner, always drops me off at work. Once, I jokingly said that I would win us a bakkie. That day has finally come,” says Mariekie.

The Nissan NP200 1.5 dCi SE bakkie is valued at close to R200 000.

“When I received the call from Virseker’s brand manager, Dawid Botha, I thought it was a hoax! I knew I had entered the Skouspel competition, but I couldn’t believe that I was the grand prize winner”, she says.

On 26 June 2013, Mariekie collected her prize from IC Nissan Benoni. She was greeted by a welcoming committee and her bakkie, which was wrapped in a red velvet cloth with a big silver bow around it.

“My dad can finally get rid of his old ‘krok’. He still insists on dropping me off at work, but now we do it in style!” concludes Mariekie.

Huisgenoot Skouspel, proudly sponsored by Virseker, will be taking place on 5&6 October, and 12&13 October 2013 at the Sun City Superbowl. Tickets are available from Computicket.
