Third party insurance for South-Africa

Hello,

I finally arrived from Egypt through Africa in South Africa. In Ethiopie i got me insurance for lots of country's. In Botswana I had to by one on the border and payed me roadtax. When i arrived at border South-Africa the officials said i dont need an insurance. I am insured by dieseltax?
Is that true or am i uninsured now?

Thanks in advance for answering

3rd party vehicle insurance is not compulsory in South Africa.

A portion of the fuel levy is contributed to the Road Accident Fund, which is a government run fund set up to compensate people injured in motor vehicle accidents.

It doesn't cover damages you might cause to other vehicles, so some people take out 3rd party insurance to cover this risk.

Thanks for answering so fast. Good to hear injuries are covered with the R.A.F. Just have to take care not mistakenly hitting one of those fast blinking white cars ;-)

Anyone know who will insure a motorbike for South Africa. I've had a look online but haven't found anyone who will cover a motorbike.
