South Africa’s NCR arm-twists FNBB to cut employees

South African based NCR, a global brand known for ATM manufacturing and support services has put a gun to FNBB’s head to retrench its technical services department workers and outsource the service to Botswana based NCR partner, Tano Digital Solutions Botswana.
