After a racial email from an alleged MiWay Claims Administrator, Aarthi Roopnarain, started circulating on WhatsApp platform, Twitter users attacked insurance company MiWay.
The email reads: “Good day Nobu, This is a reminder of yesterdays managers meeting. The final decisions was to reject 90% of claims made by black people as from 1 August 2017. They are an easy target, its also a great opportunity to save money and also punish these black baboons”.
Now MiWay has found itself in hot water.
