Pwani Life Staff get together and let their hair down at the 2017 Founder’s day

The family that plays together stays together. Pwani Life knows this and therefore, every year the entire Pwani Family meets for a fulfilled day in Mombasa to celebrate its founders. The Chairman, Mr Ramesh Malde hosts an annual party and this year the venue was the Wild Waters park in Nyali, Mombasa.


This day also marked Mr. Chairman’s birthday where he celebrated with all Pwani staff. The day was filled with engaging activities, water games, skits and recognition of various staff from different departments

When it comes to fun, you can never go wrong with food, games and water. No wonder Pwani life has such long serving staff like … who has seen POPL evolve from humble beginnings and has no plans for leaving anytime soon.

Judging from the energy at founder’s day, 2017 will be a great year for Pwani. Long live the founders!


Ending 2016 Pwani style by celebrating it with Loyal customers

At Pwani life, we value our customers and know that when the customer comes first, a customer will last. Therefore, we always take it upon ourselves to reward loyalty each year.

In October 2016, POPL extended a promotion whereby any customer was required to uplift a specified amount to products within the 3 month promotion period (Oct-Dec) to stand a chance to win. This was done with the aim of creating binding and empowering partnerships which in turn open up business and employment opportunities to Kenyans of all walks of life.


Therefore by creating these opportunities, Pwani awarded an assortment 10 vehicles ranging from canters, proboxes, tuktuks &motorbikes.


On 11th March, our commercial director Rajul Malde hosted the winners at a luncheon at our Kikambala factory premises, where the vehicles were flagged off to the rightful owners.


What a wonderful way to end the year on high note. The POPL family is growing stronger and the sky is the limit. When you take care of your people, your people will take care of your business.
