Just like his father and me before him, Kingsley is now the owner of a “Dollarmite” Bank Account! Back when we ourselves were under the wing of our parents, banks were visited, signatures were signed and bank accounts opened with a deep bow and show of respect to the ‘Bank Manager’, just for us; for our future, and in a bid for us to get to grapple with the importance of ‘saving’.
