Absa learnt the hard way that Twitter can destroy a poorly thought-out campaign. But the bank is not alone.
The Public Protector has been dogged by a series of odd decisions and controversial reports. These are some of the dodgier moments.
Busisiwe Mkhwebane says her reports are not soft, and that she is here to stay until 2023.
Busisiwe Mkhwebane's Bankorp-CIEX report, in which ABSA was ordered to pay R1,125-billion, was set aside by the Pretoria High Court on Friday.
"It appears as if the Reserve Bank is trying to have Mkhwebane removed from her office."
The Public Protector wants to have her cake and eat it. Not possible, says Absa.
She is accused of being biased against the bank and pursing an ulterior motive.
HSBC reportedly picked up suspicious transactions related to the Guptas and their businesses.
The public protector wants the case heard in March next year.
