The bank account is now operational. Apologies for the delay this week. It was a technical error on the side of the bank and has been fixed.
Payments will be done by early tomorrow morning.
I think a bunch of banks were experiencing technical faults this week and it may be worth your time to inquire as you might be viable for compensation. A friend told me this:
>> my bank called and they still haven't figured out why my transfers were rejected
>> my bank manager passed it on to customer relations for "obvious compensation" because the technical faults department have been handling similar issues for a week without giving him a reason.
