Kenya is one of the countries in Africa which has the most population which reside in overcrowded areas mostly in urban centres. Urban centres in Kenya such as Nairobi has a very high population which even exceed the available resources for the benefits of all the residents. The resources which are overwhelmed by the high population include health facilities and medical centres, better housing facilities and general infrastructure. This overcrowding is therefore the sole reason of unemployment in the urban areas which have become very rampant and the major challenge.
The overcrowding of the areas and the poor housing and medical facilities thereby expose the people to injuries and accidents which may occur in these areas. Overcrowded areas such as slums have poor drainage systems and therefore exposing the residents to diseases and epidemics. There is therefore the need for insurance of the people to damages, accidents and injuries that they are more prone to and/or exposed to. Insurance companies therefore try to insure them to be able to compensate for their losses and other damages that may occur within them.
Insurance companies not only insure people in damage-prone areas but they also insure the general public as accidents are inevitable and have no timing of their occurrence. Insurance companies in Kenya have therefore come up with a lot of initiatives and features to curb and be able to cover all casualties effectively without straining the insured.
