Popular thespian David Mwabili, popularly known by his stage name Inspekta Mwala, has implored the youth folk to adopt financial discipline if they are to achieve their financial goals.
In a video posted on his official Facebook page, the entertainer challenged the youth to embrace savings for their futuristic benefit.
Mwala posited that savings of as low as Ksh50 per day can amount to a lot after a particular period of time.
“Nataka kuongea na vijana. Kumekuwa na hii tatizo ya vijana eti hawajui savings. Ukitaka vizuri kuishi maisha mzuri, maisha ambayo hayana mushkil, maisha taratibu. Fanya kitu ambayo inaitwa savings. Na savings, si kitu ngumu. What you do, unakuwa ukideposit kidogo kidogo. Ata kama ni 50 bob. Na mwisho utapata uko na kitu,” Mwala said.
Sonko endorses newly launched insurance firm
The thespian’s advice comes against the backdrop of similar advise to youths by former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko,
Sonko endorsed fast-rising insurance cover, Base Yetu. Sonko said that it is important for families to consider taking insurance covers since they come in handy when death or illnesses befell their family members.
The former county head narrated that he has been to several fundraisers and has seen how vulnerable Kenyans can be when unexpected accidents, illnesses and deaths occur.
“Juzi nimekua harambee fulani ya matanga enye watu wengi walisusia. It got me thinking about how vulnerable our people are when unexpected accidents, illnesses and deaths occur. Kitu ikifanyika ndio unagundua uko pekee yako na familia yenu haina marafiki, unless wewe ni dynasty,” Sonko stated.
He announced that his Sonko Rescue Team will now partner with Base Yetu to help provide insurance coverage for people from low-income areas. He pledged to pay covers for 200 families, 100 in Mombasa and 100 in Nairobi.
Base Yetu, a community program focused on empowerment and smart savings to care for tomorrow’s eventualities, helps Kenyans secure their future and that of their loved ones.
The Base Yetu Covers enable you to insure 5 of your loved ones with as little as Ksh. 5,000 per year, and they will be entitled to benefits that cover permanent disability, funeral expenses, and next-of-kin payouts.
