JOHANNESBURG, Sept 2
JOHANNESBURG, Sept 2 (Reuters) - The South African Reserve Bank has launched an investigation into failed lender African Bank Investments to determine if it engaged in reckless conduct or questionable management practices, the central bank said on Tuesday.
African Bank Investments, known as Abil, was rescued in a $1.6 billion bailout led by the central bank last month after the unsecured lender was hit by waves of bad debt.
