KPMG appoints new chair and independent director

Audit firm KPMG has announced the appointment of Prof Wiseman Nkuhlu as chairperson of the board, and Ansie Ramalho as independent director on the board, in a move to 'strengthen the governance and leadership of the firm'.

The organisation has come under fire since the Gupta leaks revealed its questionable role in helping the controversial family use state funds to pay for a lavish wedding at Sun City.

They both start and assume their roles effective on the 1st of March.
