South Africa's tax agency said it will launch legal proceedings against KPMG for reputational damage caused when the auditor released details of a confidential report it had compiled for the tax office.

The legal action is another blow for KPMG, which on Friday cleared out its South African leadership en masse after damning findings from an internal investigation into work done for the Guptas, businessmen friends of President Jacob Zuma.

South African Revenue Services (SARS) commissioner Tom Moyane told a news conference the agency would report KPMG to Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba with a view to blacklisting the auditor for its "unethical" and "unlawful" behaviour. It will also ask parliament to investigate the firm.
