Mlanjira received monetary token and a certificate of recognition after he underwent a virtual training on insurance reporting by Sanlam, NICO’s partner based in South Africa.
“This is an honor to me. The training was most useful for me. At my old age, undergoing a virtual training, it made me to start thinking beyond the box.
“I have learnt how to tell a story differently and how to do things post-COVID-19. The events that NICO hold are of public interest and the training has sharpened me to better report on such,” said Duncan.
NICO General Insurance Chief Executive Officer, Donbell Mandala, says his company is committed to train more journalists on insurance matters.
“NICO Group is a financial service provider. I think it is one of the largest in Malawi. By training journalist on our financial services and solutions, it will help them to report correctly and objectively on issues that affect our industry.
“We though by training them, we are equipping them with the right equipment for them to be able to analyze our numbers or our objectives in the system,” he said.
The recognition has been held today in Blantyre at an event where twenty lucky winners in the Yendani Mofewa Promotion were drawn.
The promotion started early April and was closed on 30 April, 2021 and winners received fuel worth K60, 000.
According to Mandala, the objective of the promotion was to give back to customers during the Easter month whilst promoting some of the company’s products offered on the market.
