He added that this is the first of several funeral homes that will be opened in the country.

NICO Life Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Eric Chapola, reiterated Mr Mankhusu`s sentiments, adding that NICO Life is prepared to continuously serve its members very well.

“It is often perceived as a taboo to get funeral cover for you or your loved ones. People often see it as ‘preparing for one’s death’. And that is, to a certain extent, what funeral cover is. We want to make sure that you do not shoulder a further burden when a beloved one dies. We are prepared to ease the pressure,” Chapola said.

MASM CEO, Sydney Chikoti, further encouraged people to join the existing scheme and make use of the home.
