(1) The PIC’s Social and Ethics Committee (SEC) has never considered the home loan that VBS Mutual Bank (VBS) granted to former President Zuma. According to media reports, VBS advanced a loan to Mr Zuma in September 2016. The PIC had no knowledge of, nor was it party to, that transaction. In August 2017, the transaction referred to in the reply to Parliamentary Question 2762, was referred to the SEC due to the negative media coverage that followed after VBS granted the home loan to Mr Zuma. The SEC had to assess the reputational risk for the PIC when investing in VBS.
(2) The PIC did not grant any loan to VBS to be used to lend money to former President Zuma.
The rest of the questions fall away.
