We're looking at AI, machine learning... the kinds of jobs we believe are critical to go forward.Gerrie Fourie, CEO - Capitec Bank

Fourie notes that before the recent unrest, Capitec had actually been looking for close to 600 people.
Due to the unrest quite a few of our branches actually closed and we're redeploying staff until these are rebuilt.Gerrie Fourie, CEO - Capitec Bank
We've lost close to 80 branches, of which 11 haven't been badly damaged... so there are about 70 that have been destroyed... and 100-150 ATMs destroyed on top of it...Gerrie Fourie, CEO - Capitec Bank
