According to ConsenSys:

“In consortium with seven commercial banks, SARB partnered with ConsenSys Solutions and Adhara, to build a proof-of-concept grounded in real-world performance, confidentiality requirements, and diverse bank hardware on the blockchain—without a single point of failure. By harnessing a permissioned blockchain network, the Istanbul Byzantine Fault Tolerance consensus mechanism, Pedersen commitments, and range proofs, Project Khoka was able to replicate interbank clearing and settlements in less than two hours.”

Project Khokha is a proof-of-concept interbank payment and settlement system by the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) that is based on the Quorum blockchain. The project is also the first blockchain-based initiative in Africa to receive global recognition.
