On 4 January the bank distanced itself from the comments made by Hart.
Standard Bank's Chief Executive Officer Sim Tshabalala sent the following note to staff, which was published in the Rand Daily Mail”:
Black South Africans are in fact fully entitled to a decent quality of life and to redress for Apartheid. To suggest that this means that they are ‘entitled’ in the negative sense is simply wrong and often amounts to racism.— Sim Tshabalala
