GA Insurance Limited has published a list of vehicle models that they won’t underwrite on comprehensive basis.
In a memo to its business partners, the insurance company explained that they had incurred losses while covering such vehicles.
The company noted that these vehicles’ usage has been misemployed and turn out to be a challenge when settling claims.
GA stated that the decision is to ensure smooth running of the business.
The vehicle models are Toyota Probox, Toyota Succeed, Toyota Sienta, Toyota Passo, Toyota Porte and all Suzuki models valued below KSh 1 million.
“We count on your support and understanding in the implementation of these changes,” the company said in part.
