The court upheld a high court decision that Mkhwebane should be personally liable to pay a portion of the costs in a case involving the South African Reserve Bank and Bankcorp, which is now Absa.

"The foundation has called on parliament to initiate the proceedings to evaluate her fitness to hold office,” said the foundation's director, Neeshan Balton.

“I think the Helen Suzman Foundations and others have been forthright, they have actually called for removal but there has been to a process to get through.”
