Don't blame the dividend per share.
Look at the number of issued shares.
Look at the earnings per share.
Look at the total amount of dividend as a percentage of the profit after tax

CIC's proposed div payout stands at 54%; 2017 FY payout was about 65%.

The payout is good; it's profitability that's the problem. To pay better dividends, the insurer's net profit should be playing in the billions range, not millions, considering the capital employed. The return on equity is about 7.9%... return on assets at about 1.9%...

Not easy but a good strategy for the long-term.
Even WB talks about underwriting profits being extremely desirable even while he uses the float to generate investment income.

Growth in underwriting profits gives the company opportunity to pay higher dividends and returns to shareholders
