2 heists take place every 3 days in South Africa

It’s possible that Tuesday’s audacious robbery of “high value items” at OR Tambo International Airport was an inside job, according to South African Airways (SAA).

The airline dismissed reports suggesting that R24 million was taken.

The heist occurred in a highly secure, access controlled area.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed South African Banking Risk Information Centre (Sabric) General Manager Kevin Twiname.
