Towards the end of last year a First National Bank branch in Randburg got hit by robbers who stole a number of safety deposit boxes.
Soon after the FNB Parktown branch also got hit.
On 7 September FNB emailed heist victims to inform them that some items have been recovered.
FNB allegedly kept the items for 10 months; this is the first time the bank has put a process in place to return them.
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Kelly Fraser, spokesperson for the robbery victims, and Lee-Anne van Zyl, CEO at FNB Points of Presence.
