The County Government of Taita Taveta will partner with the Insurance Regularly Authority (IRA) to offer a two day training to over 60 residents from across the county as champions of the insurance.
Speaking at the county headquarters Mwatate when they paid H.E the Deputy Governor Majala Mlagui a courtesy call, the IRA team led by the head of consumer education Anne Chegat said the aim of the training is to equip residents of the county with knowledge on how to insure their investments.
“Famers’ cooperatives especially from Taveta have assets which need to be considered, we have cooperatives for boda boda operators who when trained can be our ambassadors out there. We also have miners who understand the need for insurance but the mechanism within which they should either purchase it or implement it across their working groups has been difficult.
It will be good to see what trainings you can give them as well as how you can start looking at them by identifying the type of products to be packaged for them.” Deputy Governor Majala Mlagui has said.
The training is scheduled for March this year and will bring on board different groups including the youths, women and people with disabilities, KNUT, the interfaith, cooperatives among others.
