Various stakeholders within the legal fraternity say the Road Accident Fund is in chaos. They have called on government to urgently intervene in what they have described as the deteriorating situation at the fund. The stakeholders have cited long queues, unprocessed claims and badly administered settlements. To discuss this further we are joined by Road Accident Fund CEO, Collins Letsoalo.
Members of Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts have called for a full-scale forensic investigation into the Road Accident Fund. MPs have conducted an oversight visit at the RAF operations centre in Pretoria, where they were left shocked at the piles of boxes of claims, and the lack of working tools to help staff promptly deal with the claims. The RAF has a statutory duty to settle claims and ensure justice for road accident victims. But over time, it has experienced payment backlogs. Scopa also wants the RAF Board fired.
Road Accident Fund CEO, Collins Letsoalo, says some law firms have been making billions of rands from RAF claims, while road crash victims continue to suffer. He was addressing the Black Lawyers Association in Polokwane in Limpopo, about the RAF’s financial turn-around strategy. Letsoalo says he wants to ensure that road accident victims are paid within 120 days.
