Speaking to Redi Tlhabi, EWN's Barry Bateman sheds light on the Gupta Family's attempt to buy Habib Overseas Bank.
Bateman explains that Vardospan is the company that wants to buy the Habib Overseas Bank.
Salim Essa is the majority shareholder in Vardospan and other Gupta-owned companies.
Bateman says that Vardospan is seeking an explanation from the courts as to why the South African Reserve Bank, the Registrar of Banks and Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan have not yet pronounced on the deal to buy Habib Overseas Bank.
