I rise on behalf of the Economic Freedom Fighters and move without notice:
That the Council-
1) notes the conduct of insurance companies over the past few years that attract millions of black people to take up life and funeral policies with them and then refuse to pay out when people die;
2) further notes that Old Mutual has been the most notorious with this conduct and were recently on the news for badly handling the funeral cover claim of Mr Sfiso Mtshali which led the desperate family of Mr Sfiso Mtshali to take extraordinary steps of taking the corpse to Old Mutual office; and
3) acknowledges that these actions are not to be seen as good in this country and there is a need to revise the law governing these funeral services companies.
Motion agreed to in accordance with section 65 of the Constitution.
