Importance of life assurance

HOPE Nyambe.

Analysis: HOPE NYAMBE
“DEATH comes for us all; even at our birth, death does but stand aside a little. And every day he looks towards us and muses somewhat to himself whether that day or the next he will draw nigh. It is the law of nature, and the will of God,” says Robert Bolt.
I wrote my will a few months ago and asked my sister, who has a background in law, to have a look at it and highlight any inadequacies that might be a cause of dispute. Although she didn’t say it directly, I could sense her bewilderment, denial and abomination of even discussing death.
A man of my age and in relatively good health shouldn’t be thinking of dying. This is something that is deeply embedded in African tradition, and is driven by cultural belief intricacies and fear of death.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
