BREAKING NEWS: Interest Rates Kept Unchanged by SA Reserve Bank - Prime Rate Remains 11.75%

The South African Reserve Bank's (SARB) Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) on Thursday, 21 September voted to keep interest rates on hold.

The announcement will have come as some relief to South Africans, particularly those with home mortgages.

The country's repurchase rate will remain at 8.25% while the current prime lending rate stays at 11.75%.

The vote was not unanimous with three of the five members voting to keep the rates on hold, while the two others preferred a 25 basis point hike.
