Former finance minister Trevor Manuel has asked where the governance is when everybody is involved in the corruption cesspool.
Manuel was talking to Karima Brown about corporate responsibility in the era of state capture.
The longest serving former finance minister says whilst KPMG has been condemned for corruption, they are not the only firm.
When KPMG withdrew from the Guptas, their accounts were taken over by SizweNtsalubaGobodo… we are in a position where we can’t dispense with external auditors because they have to provide that assurance.— Trevor Manuel, Former finance minister
Asked if he has faith in Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba, Manuel encouraged the minister to be courageous.
Go out there and prove your detractors wrong. Show commitment and show courage because that courage is what the country need to know that there is hope in building our future.— Trevor Manuel, Former finance minister
