    Why not arrest Sikutwa whose companies Madison General and Madison Life that are siphoning off policyholders money and do not comply with Sections 11, 26 and 41, not fit and proper person to be the principal officers, trading while knowing if liquidated today they would not be able to pay policyholders, engaged in money laundering.

    So, the Pensions and Insurance Authority is without top 3 officials. Are they suspended or relieved of their duties? When is useless board of the PIA advertising these jobs? Sikutwa is shivering oh shut, shutting in his pants, thinking he is next
