FNB’s Jacques Celliers
CITIZEN activism has changed the world. In our little world, a reader spotted the open letter by Nicky Day-Anderson to First National Bank’s CEO Jaques Celliers which we published this week http://uncensoredopinion.co.za/open-letter-mr-jacques-celliers-fnb-ceo-please-help-me/
In the letter, Day-Anderson begs Celliers to help resolve the daylight robbery which saw her being slapped with a R640,000 bill for a house which the bank repossessed and sold for around R854,000 some ten years back. Having auctioned the house, she never heard from them until they sent her SMSes in 2015later informing her she still owed them R640,000.
Mahomed Vawda, Chief Director of investment and development in Gauteng’s Economic Development department read the piece and started a chain reaction that saw the Department Of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the National Credit Regulator intervening. In his letter, among other things, Vawda requests the DTI to communicate with the bank on behalf of Day-Anderson. The NCR’s legal department is now going to investigate the matter on her behalf.
Readers dont always leave their true identities and contact details when they post comments and so I hope Day-Anderson will read this post and confirm her details as she’s now a WANTED woman, in a positive way, by the NCR.
Let’s hope her issue is resolved speedily. Our greatest appreciation to Vawda for reading UnCensored and his citizen activism. Realeboha. Siyabonga.
