Zondo Commission: Zwane basically threatened banks for not attending meetings

Nedbank CEO Mike Brown told the state capture inquiry that he felt threatened by former minister of Mineral resources Mosebenzi Zwane.

Brown says this happened when he attended the inter-ministerial committee meeting looking into why the banks closed the Gupta family's bank accounts.

Zwane went on to threaten basically as Brown puts it that government issues licenses for banks and it would be not in their interests not to appear and not come to these meeting that government has called.
