Parliament: What have we benefited from Third-party Insurance?

Chegutu West legislator Dexter Nduna has asked the government to bring a ministerial statement explaining what the country has benefitted from Third-Party Insurance.

Most vehicle owners pay for Third-Party Insurance every quarter when renewing their vehicle licences.

However, a lot of people do not know the purpose of the insurance as they have not used it or benefited from it.

This has seen Honourable Nduna demanding that government clarify the use and benefit of the insurance to the country.

Speaking in the National Assembly, Honourable Nduna said the insurance generates a huge sum of money and citizens have a right to know what happens to it.

‘’This point of privilege is based on the Third-Party Insurance that resides with all the automobiles of about 1.5 to 2 million vehicles, which are crisscrossing the width and breadth of Zimbabwe.

‘’If it pleases you Madam Speaker, if the Minister of Transport and Infrastructural Development, as the recipient of this ubiquitous and copious amount of money from automobile or from unsuspecting innocent drivers, if he can couple a Ministerial Statement as it relates to the exact use of this Third-Party Insurance and what people have gained from that insurance and from the Passenger Insurance, which resides with the passenger services vehicles.

‘’If he can couple his Ministerial Statement with the Third-Party Insurance and Passenger Insurance so that the citizens can get to know why they are paying Third Party Insurance and Passenger Insurance?  What it is that they have to benefit from that?

In her response to Honourable Nduna, the Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Tsitsi Gezi promised to inform the minister to bring the ministerial statement.

‘’On the second one about the Third-Party Insurance and the Passenger Insurance, we will convey the message to the Minister of Transport so that he will bring in the Ministerial Statement,’’ she said.
