The Automobile Association (AA) is shocked and saddened by the news of the death of Malcolm Kinsey. Malcolm passed away in KwaZulu-Natal yesterday.
Since the late eighties, Malcolm has produced the Kinsey Report on parts prices of vehicles available in South Africa. In 2019 Automobile Association began its partnership with Malcolm and began producing the AA-Kinsey Report.
“Malcolm was an institution in the motoring industry. His annual report was an authoritative and respected publication. He was passionate about the report and was meticulous in putting it together ensuring all the detail could be verified and cross-checked. He was always open to talk about his findings, was humble in accepting accolades, and was, above all, genuinely concerned about giving consumers useful information. He will be missed by the entire motoring industry, and especially those who were privileged to have worked with him. We are devastated by the news,” says Mr Willem Groenewald, AA CEO.
The AA extends its condolences to Malcolm’s family, friends, and industry colleagues.
