South Africa’s parliament cuts ties with auditor KPMG

South Africa’s parliament said on Wednesday it has terminated its contract with KPMG, citing reputational risks after the global auditor was caught up in a scandal involving business friends of President Jacob Zuma.

Parliament said this termination includes a contract KPMG has with a medical aid scheme for Members of Parliament.

KPMG cleared out its South African leadership en masse this month after damning findings from an internal investigation into the Guptas, accused by a public watchdog of improperly influencing government contracts.
