South Africa should seek damages from global auditor KPMG for the role it played in a corruption scandal that saw at least 1.9 billion rand ($130 million) stolen from local bank VBS, a central bank investigation published on Wednesday said.
Africa The SARB commissioned the investigation
The SARB commissioned the investigation into VBS after it was placed under curatorship in March.
KPMG, which audited the bank's financial results, said it had noted the investigation's publication. Earlier this year it announced changes to its corporate governance to try to restore the reputation of its South African business. ■
