Banking as it should be

Since opening my Capitec account I have earned about R284 in interest and spent R199 in fees, including the R125 for the security code generator dongle thing. So actually only R74 in fees.

Admittedly I don't have my debit orders moved across yet (I'm actually waiting for the promised switching regime to be finalised because I want to test it - we asked them about 18 months ago to craft one) but I've done plenty EFTs and ATM withdrawals since March this year. And besides debits cost like R2.50 each or something.

Must read on SA politics

Finally some clarity on the NGC. Thank goodness for Anthony Butler.
