Stanbic Bank Head of Personal and Private Banking (PPB), Nelson Muhau said the state-of-
the art cash deposit machines can be utilised without a bank representative or teller by
simply following the promptings once one starts the process of depositing.
Muhau said the institution is amongst the first in the country to rollout these devices that
can take deposits 24/7, 365 days a year.
“The game changing machines have a variety of benefits, chief among them being 24 hours
and 7 days (24/7) access to deposit; safe, fast and effective bulk deposit services with real
time updating of one’s balance, convenience and support through our various 24-hour

Nkomo and Belmont Branches); Gweru and Mutare.
Muhau said the machines will be available 24/7 with the exception of Borrowdale and
Belgravia branches where they will only be available during branch operating hours from
