PSMAS board survives dissolution

Attempts by some disgruntled Premier Services Medical Aid Society (PSMAS) members to have the current board dissolved were overturned at the annual general meeting which resolved that they can no longer interfere with a matter that is now before the courts of law and set to be heard this Friday. Zimbabwe’s largest medical aid society by subscription, PSMAS held its annual general meeting in Harare this Tuesday amid a number of challenges haunting the medical aid society. A few days ago a group of dissatisfied members filed an urgent application with the High Court seeking an order compelling the society to table proposals for the dissolution of the current board on the agenda of the AGM. When the AGM met this Tuesday, it resolved that the matter can no longer be discussed in the meeting as it was now before the courts. The unhappy members are accusing the current board of presiding over deteriorating service delivery and mismanagement of the society’s funds. The current board chaired by Mr Jeremiah Bvirindi is being accused of procuring vehicles valued at half a million dollars for its three top executives at a time the medical society’s members are failing to access services at health institutions due to non-payment of over US$200 million owed to service providers. PSMAS communication and brand manager Mr Arthur Choga said besides the dissolution of the board, other...
