Zimnat, one of the leading players in the Zimbabwean life assurance and short-term insurance industries since 1946, has donated funeral services worth $10 000 for the burial of 10 of the miners killed in the Battlefields mining disaster.

The group has made the donation through Mashonaland West Province Minister of State Mary Mliswa to assist the families of 10 of the miners who lost their lives in the disaster.

The funeral services will be provided by FSG Zimbabwe, which is a subsidiary of Zimnat Life Assurance.

Zimnat Life Assurance is one of the Zimnat group's four business units. The others are Zimnat General Insurance, Zimnat Asset Management and Zimnat Microfinance. The group is also associated with Sanlam, which is the largest non-banking financial institution on the continent.

The deceased miners were among at least 32 trapped in a shaft at Bazter and Cricket mine when the shaft was flooded as a result of heavy rain.




Eight of the miners were rescued after four days of rescue efforts. The bodies of the 24 who lost their lives in the flooded shaft have been recovered.

"This is indeed a sad and tragic incident. We at Zimnat felt we should do something to help those who lost relatives in this national disaster," said Zimnat group chief executive Mustafa Sachak.

"While nothing can replace their relatives, we hope that our donation of funeral services will help make their lives a little easier. It is a gesture of solidarity with them in their time of grief," he said.

FSG Zimbabwe is a funeral services company that offers a unique combination of funeral assurance and funeral services. It combines Hospital Cash Back Cover, Total and Permanent Disability Cover and Funeral Services in one product. All the insured benefits are underwritten by Zimnat Life Assurance Company.
