New KPMG boss to appear before Scopa
Chief executive Nhlamu Dlomu says she will be accompanied by two senior officials to answer Scopa’s questions.
PRETORIA - Embattled auditor KPMG has confirmed it will appear before Parliament's Standing Committee on Public Accounts on Thursday.
The firm has come under significant scrutiny since it removed its top management and withdrew its controversial Sars report.
Wits University announced on Wednesday morning that it won't renew its contract with the company, just days after Parliament announced it too was cutting ties.
In a statement, KPMG chief executive Nhlamu Dlomu says she will be accompanied by the firm’s public sector head and the board’s interim chair to answer Scopa’s questions.
Dlomu says they remain committed to cooperate with the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors in its investigation.
She’s also confirmed that the independent inquiry announced last month will be led by two experienced senior counsel.
Dlomu says the scope of the inquiry, terms of reference and timeframes will be announced next week and she’s confirmed the findings will be made public.
