Each month we want to introduce you to a new member of our amazing team!

Thami Nxumalo has been at VUM from the beginning. He has worked in underwriting and claims. He has applied his exceptional mind to Taxi Claims and has consequently risen to become the claims manager.

Thami hails from Nongoma in northern KwaZulu Natal. He still has strong ties to his community and visits Nongoma often. In his spare time, Thami is active in his church, enjoys reading and studying and supports the Mamelodi Sundowns (which nobody at VUM can understand). Above, Thami is photographed with his son, Sanele.

VUM was invited to attend a SANTACO KZN Gala Dinner at which we were honoured to receive an award of gratitude for being a consistent business partner. Above are Mike Machiya and Thandiwe Gwina receiving the award.

Remote Jamming

Remote Jamming is an increasingly common phenomenon in which criminals block a vehicle’s locking function as the driver is walking away. After this, thieves will steal items from the car. Thefts that happen in this manner will not be covered by VUM as there is no evidence of forcible entry to the vehicle. Please make your clients aware of this risk, especially if they have cover under Business All Risks, Goods in Transport or Electronic Equipment with the Extended Theft extension taken on our AssetSure policy.
