Ford should reimburse owners of Kugas that caught fire

CEO of Ditshego Media, Tebogo Ditshego, says Ford has been insensitive in handling the matter of Ford Kugas that caught fire.

Ditshego says the company could have considered recalling all vehicles that have had mechanical defects and reimbursing customers by proving them with new cars.

Reports suggest that 54 Ford Kuga have burnt since the death of Reshall Jimmy in December 2015.
