Of course, you’ve heard a lot about President Zuma 783 charges of corruption but, you probably didn’t know that the charges were based on a KPMG report.
Well, it is. KPMG in September 2016, prepared a forensic report for Zuma’s trial. The report was based on numerous documents Scorpions investigators seized from Shaik, Zuma and other individuals.
Meanwhile, you will recall that the international auditing firm withdrew its report which accused the former minister of finance, Pravin Gordhan of shady dealings.
Most recently, the firm found itself in a difficult place after it was alleged that it has been helping the Guptas to loot state coffers.
Now, the Black First Land First (BLF) movement is striving to get rid of Zuma 783 charges with the things hanging around KPMG’s neck.
To BLF, KPMG has been trapped in its own trap. “Because of greed, it is now forced to withdraw its own report on the main agent of white monopoly capital (Pravin Gordhan).
“What kind of auditing firm is instructed to withdraw its own investigations?” BLF asked and asserted that the scandal against Gordhan has been turned by white-owned media into a scandalous relationship between Gupta companies and KPMG.
“The media has removed from the public the fact that KPMG investigated Pravin Gordhan and found evidence that he had illegally operated a spy unit during his time as head of the South African Revenue Services (SARS),” stated BLF.
With that, the movement promised to intensify its protest against KPMG. Among other things, BLF is demanding that the auditing firm, within seven days, withdraw its report upon which the 783 charges against President Zuma were formulated.
Apart from that, BLF demanded that:
- All audits and investigations by KPMG to be reviewed.
- KPMG apologise for being an agent of white monopoly capital and regime change and;
- Reveal the pressure put on it by Pravin Gordhan and other white monopoly capital agencies to withdraw its report on the rogue unit at SARS.
The movement vowed to start and keep up a non-stop and often surprise protest action against KPMG until a satisfactory response is given to their demands.
