Musicians Lulu and Edgar ndi Davis were the main acts during the launch of Old Mutual Timba and Tsogolo policies on Saturday at Gateway Mall in Lilongwe.
Lulu, as usual, gave his best performances as he mobilised Malawians to start embracing a saving mentality instead of spending all their money on luxuries. The artists were on stage as early as 10am belting out inspirational songs about culture, love and social evils affecting the society to an audience which included Old Mutual Malawi group chief executive officer Edith Jiya and Lilongwe City mayor Desmond Bikoko.
Edgar ndi Davis as usual mixed music and comedy to drive home messages about savings and planning the future in line with Old Mutual’s two policies to hundreds of people that gathered at the mall.
Jiya said the two products are aimed at instilling a saving culture to ensure that Malawians live a better life and have something to rely on in case of emergencies such as death of loved ones
“Each plan has a long-term pocket and a short-term pocket which allows the policy holder to build up funds for their future financial goals, as well as giving access to your money. It caters for both long-term financial goals and also provide easier access to your money if you need it,” she said.
On his part, Bikoko hailed Od Mutual for introducing policies that will benefit people of all income levels.
If people can have that saving culture, lives in our communities will be transformed,” he said. n
