Lolani Kalu, a journalist who was laid off from NTV a few years ago, has just resurfaced on our screens. In spite of his famed “Malimwengu na Lolani” segment, Lolani is currently appearing on Citizen TV’s Sultana soap opera.
Inevitably, everyone loses their job at some point, and it’s important to be prepared for that possibility. Once you reach the age of retirement, you, too, must stop working. The years are flying by, therefore you need to be ready for everything.
You should know that upon reaching the age of 55, most Kenyan companies provide their employees the option of retiring. Workers at large Kenyan companies like the Supreme Court can retire at the age of 70, therefore it’s important for citizens to save for their eventual retirement.
Now that you have some free time on your hands, it would be wise to begin making investments in small firms while you are still employed. You should put money aside in a savings account so that you’ll have something to fall back on in case of emergency. Lolani’s life got difficult once he was laid off from NTV Kenya, where he had worked for 18 years.
It’s important to realize that no job is secure because no employee can predict what their boss will do. It’s possible that he or she is thinking of leaving the employment in order to pursue other opportunities. No matter what you do, you can’t stop him or her from selling the business.
Employees should constantly plan ahead because they have no idea when they might be laid off. After being laid off from their jobs, many people have vanished. There were others who abandoned their families due to financial difficulties.
Companies typically don’t care about their employees, so they won’t think twice about laying you off if necessary.
