JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Premier David Makhura says the Ethics Advisory Council will advise the government on what to do about companies involved in state capture, making specific reference to KPMG a nd SAP.

The council, made up of prominent activists including Corruption Watch's David Lewis And Dr Terrence Nombembe, was set up by Makhura to oversee clean governance.

Makhura has tabled a fourth political report in the legislature on Thursday, highlighting successes and challenges faced by government

Makhura says the civil society led ethics and anti-corruption advisory council already has its hands full dealing with the KPMG issue.

“You know that it is not only KPMG, it is now McKinsey and SAP and they may be several of them that are coming.”

He says the advisory council consists of what he calls ethics ambassadors and will have actual powers.

“You’ll remember SAP also did financial systems, personnel systems. I said to the ethics and advisory council you must have teeth. I can’t ignore that advice.”

Makhura has also officially welcomed former Treasury official Michael Sachs, saying he will be an asset to the provincial team.
