How to pay for Motor Third-Party using the New Mobile Payment Platform in Uganda

Motor Third Party in Uganda

It is mandatory that every car owner in Uganda should pay for Motor Third-Party insurance despite the Global Pandemic. In order to ease the process the Insurance Regulatory Authority (IRA) of Uganda has introduced a Mobile Payment Platform that allows motorists to buy Motor Third Party Insurance using their phones. Initially this service is only available for MTN Uganda and Airtel Uganda subscribers. 

This platform will ensure that motorists pay for their Motor Third Party Insurance premium using their phones. The IRA Uganda has come up with an anti-insurance fraud team that has been receiving many complaints which require investigation and attention and they have discovered that Motor Third Party stickers are sold on Black-Market to unsuspecting drivers. The issue comes in when an accident happens and the driver goes to make a claim, only for the IRA to discover that the Motor Third Party issued sticker is not genuine. This calls in for the IRA to introduce the MTP Mobile Payment Platform to help in cutting down the spread of forged MTP Stickers.
