51 Capital, a Kenyan online forex trading company that was recently ranked the second-best in Africa in a poll done by Australian forex broker IC Markets has embarked on a massive recruitment drive aimed at teaching people in the region how to trade forex.
The forex trader under the Candy Candy stable is targeting 4,000 participants across East Africa for what is being billed as the largest and most grand forex trading and giveaways in Africa.
51 Capital is also slated to distribute goodies while running the mentorship.
“Since forex trading is one of the world’s biggest million-dollar enterprises, we have decided to teach and train these same people on the business and lucrativeness of online forex trading,” 51 Capital CEO Joe Kariuki said in a statement.
“We have decided to bring back the Christmas spirit and extend the celebrations by way of giving out thousands of goodies, cash, gifts and tokens to thousands of people from Rwanda to Tanzania to Uganda to Kenya,”added Kariuki said in the statement.
According to the chief executive, 51 Capital’s website will guide interested participants on how to proceed in order to be selected for the mentorship.
” It is simple, really. You just get on our website, and under ‘events’, you’ll see a wheel. Just tap on it to spin in. And after it’s done spinning, it’ll give you a number that you will now be required to send over to us, plus your name, e-mail and phone number. Just that. And then sit back and wait for a call from us, ” Gathoni Waweru, the group’s publicist said in the statement.
In November, 51 Capital beat renown forex traders from Nigeria and Egypt to emerge second in the IC Markets poll.
IC Markets’ poll recognized 51 Capital in a packed pool of high-flying forex trading entities across Africa as well as across the Mediterranean.
