Journalists urged to prioritise financial responsibility

Journalists have been urged to adopt a more financially responsible lifestyle for their own well-being.

Head of Operations at United Civil Servants SACCO (UCSSACCO) Francis Kandonga, made this call during a financial management training by the organisation for members of Nyika Media Club in Mzuzu.

Kandonga emphasised the importance of budgeting, saving, investing wisely, and effectively managing debts.

He further said such skills are essential in transforming the lives of journalists and ensuring their financial stability.

Feston Malekezo, Chairperson for Nyika Media Club, commended UCSSACCO for the initiative and urged fellow journalists to embrace a culture of financial responsibility.

He also highlighted the dangers of overspending, excessive reliance on debts, and lack of investment, urging journalists to prioritise long-term financial health over short-term gratification.

The training was organised as one way of steering journalists away from living paycheck to paycheck, towards a more stable and secure financial footing.
