Nairobi - AFC Leopards sports club has launched two customized insurance products to benefit its massive fan base spread across the country.
The products, dubbed 'Ingwe personal accident cover' and 'Ingwe final journey cover' were a result of the team’s partnership with APA Insurance Limited and Rapid Communications.
Speaking during the launch, AFC Leopards Chairman, Alan Kasavuli, said that the loyalty exhibited by its members will go a long way and this will boost the entire AFC fraternity.
“The Ingwe Insurance cover is an all round cover that will cater for the club members contingencies both in and out of the pitch, while the Ingwe Final journey cover can be extended to a player or fans’ immediate family members," said Kasavuli.
He said that the personal accident cover is accessible on both Safaricom and Airtel mobile networks.
In case of accident, subscribers will get a permanent disability benefit of KES 100 000, as well as death, hospitalization and funeral expenses.
A payable premium of KES 1,690 per year is charged but however, to enroll for the funeral cover, one must not be older than 70 years.
APA insurance Principal Officer, Suresh Kumar, noted that this was a product that was long overdue since Kenya’s football industry has grown by leaps and bounds thus the need to mitigate any eventualities that could jeopardize the growth.
