The Public Investment Corporation's Daniel Matjila was on the line talking about the costs of Nene's firing on their investments and how they managed to recover once Pravin Gordhan was reappointed.
We didn't lose R100 billion. The portfolio dropped by R100 billion from 9.11 to 10.11...it was paper losses, and the market recovered quite considerably. By December, the portfolio had fully recovered those paper losses.— Daniel Matjila, CEO PIC
