Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary for Defence Ms. Raychelle Omamo said that, this payment was
proof that insurance can help you get through difficult times without having to go into debt

“We tried partnering with various insurance companies in the past for a number of policies,
but they have failed to pay claims. Jubilee Insurance through this payment is a firm

played a crucial role in the continuation and sustainability of the families of the Kenya
