POST In­sur­ance (mo­tor) held its first termly draw of the Post In­sur­ance spin and win pro­mo­tion where three cus­tomers from dif­fer­ent prov­inces won cars in Bu­l­awayo yes­ter­day.

The Post In­sur­ance is a col­lab­o­ra­tion of Zim­post and Ni­coz Di­a­mond that was of­fi­cially launched in May 2018 as a mo­tor in­sur­ance ser­vice that caters for both third party and com­pre­hen­sive in­sur­ance cov­ers.

Deputy Min­is­ter of In­for­ma­tion, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Tech­nol­ogy and Courier Ser­vices Jer­i­fan Muswere who was guest of hon­our said mo­tor in­sur­ance was im­por­tant for every cit­i­zen in pos­ses­sion of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle.

“The im­por­tance of mo­tor in­sur­ance can­not be overem­pha­sised, in the event of an ac­ci­dent, in­sur­ance pro­vides com­pen­sa­tion for in­jured oc­cu­pants of ve­hi­cles as well as the re­pair works that may need to be un­der­taken to re­store the ve­hi­cles to their orig­i­nal road­wor­thy sta­tus,” he said.

The min­is­ter ap­plauded Post In­sur­ance not­ing that it was in line with Gov­ern­ment prin­ci­ples.

“I note with sat­is­fac­tion that the Post In­sur­ance prod­uct is con­ve­niently ac­ces­si­ble through­out the 230 post of­fices in the coun­try. This authen­tic and af­ford­able ser­vice is sup­port­ive of the Gov­ern­ment of Zim­babwe’s thrust to fi­nan­cially in­clude the gen­er­al­ity of the pop­u­la­tion of Zim­babwe.

Min­is­ter of State for Bu­l­awayo Metropoli­tan Prov­ince, Cde Ju­dith Ncube also con­curred say­ing the ser­vice would help peo­ple to ac­cess in­sur­ances.

“This is a clear demon­stra­tion of the Gov­ern­ment’s com­mit­ment to the de­vel­op­ment of postal ser­vices in the City of Bu­l­awayo in par­tic­u­lar. The mo­tor in­sur­ance makes it easy and cost ef­fec­tive for the peo­ple of Zim­babwe to ac­cess in­sur­ance ser­vices,” she said.

Zim­post Act­ing Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Mr Si­fundo Moyo said they de­cided to part­ner with each other as their ser­vices are na­tion­ally ac­cepted.

“Zim­post is one of the old­est and trusted courier ser­vices provider in Zim­babwe while Ni­coz Di­a­mond is one of the big­gest com­pa­nies in the coun­try when it comes to in­sur­ance ser­vices and this is an added ad­van­tage to cus­tomers as both com­pa­nies are a re­li­able source,” said Mr Moyo.

Ni­coz Di­a­mond Act­ing Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Mrs Gugulethu Ng­wenya said the in­sur­ance pro­mo­tion is a short term ser­vice which was started in May and ends next year in April.

“We are go­ing to have three draws and this is the first draw, we are tak­ing into ac­count those in­di­vid­u­als that have bought their in­sur­ance from 22 May to 31 April 2019 that was the data­base that we used to­day to con­duct the draw, we have is­sued close to 8 000 cover notes,” she said.
