KPMG South Africa wants an independent investigation into the firm’s conduct to reassure employees and clients after a scandal involving its handling of audits for businessman friends of President Jacob Zuma, its new chief executive said on Wednesday.

“This would be an additional assurance lens, so the public can see,” Nhlamulo Dlomu, who took over as chief executive of the auditor’s South African operations on Friday, told Talk Radio 702.
