P.A.Z Calls For The Finalisation of Accident Fund Bill

By Nompilo Mathuthu

The Passenger Association of Zimbabwe (PAZ) is advocating for the passing of the proposed Motor Vehicle accident fund to address compensation of accident victims who use public transportation .

Secretary General of P.A.Z , Mr Paul Makiwa , in an interview with Skyz Metro FM news , Makiwa said in the past many passengers who were victims of accidents were not compensated and it was a cause for concern as most cannot afford to cater for their health bills.

“Due to the high passenger genocide which ca take place on air crash ,shipwreck , rail derailments and road carnages , we appeal to cabinet to have the accident fund bill which will cater for passengers . If the bill sails through it will go a long way to save passengers in case of an accidents “, said Makiwa .

The motor vehicle fund was proposed in 2017 by the ministry of transport and infrastructural development to assist road accident victims and their families .
