Sulu appointed ambassador

HARARE - Dendera star Suluman Chimbetu has been appointed as the brand ambassador of Corporate 24 Medical Aid.

Corporate 24 chief executive officer Mike Joka said the honour bestowed on the 32-year-old musician was in recognition of the high level of professionalism that he exhibits.

“We have not faced any challenges dealing with him. At the moment he is the only ambassador we have, so you are going to see a lot of him on our advertisements,” said Joka during the launch of the medical aid last Friday.

In line with Suluman’s ambassadorial status, the popular musician and members of his Orchestra Dendera Kings backing band will be provided with medical cover.

“We are going to cover him and the rest of his band. When there are problems, they are going to be our ears,” said Joka.

The combined medical and funeral cover policy is being offered through a partnership between Corporate 24 and CBZ Life.

Packages start from $3 (Star Mini); $6 (One Star), $10 (Two Star), $35 (Three Star) and $50 (Four Star).

Clients subscribing to the various packages will also be entitled to funeral covers ranging from $500 to $2 000.

The Corporate 24 head added that they have come up with a budget package meant to provide cover for low income earners and informal sector players.

“We want everyone, even a hwindi (tout) to get a medical aid they can afford,” he said.

Sulu has promised to do all in his power to meet the expectations that come with the ambassadorial status.

“Dr Joka is my homeboy from Chegutu. He saw me grow up in the farming area and I will not let him down. My dream has been fulfilled because my band is now covered and my family is covered as well,” said Suluman.

CBZ sales and marketing executive Joey Shumbamhini said the Corporate 24 Medical Aid venture was being spearheaded by partners whose commitment is to give clients value for their money.

“Medical aid can be very flashy but the question is will it work? We have seen many (medical aid) members being turned away by doctors. We are saying you should be healthy and if death happens, let us make it less painful to the bereaved,” he said.

Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce deputy president Davison Norupiri, who attended the Corporate 24 Medical Aid launch, praised the new medical aid for providing cover to the neglected informal sector.
