Botswana operations not affected by SA scandal � KPMG


Senior partner at KPMG Botswana, Nigel Dixon-Warren says the local operations are not affected by recent events in South Africa where the audit firm has been embroiled in controversies. One of the scandals include work done for the Gupta family in SA.

In a statement, Dixon-Warren said it was business as usual at the Botswana office, where the company is involved in high profile works such as the liquidation process of BCL Mine as well as KFC Botswana. “Stakeholders of KPMG may understandably be concerned as to whether the developments in South Africa will impact on the firm’s activities in Botswana.

“Here in Botswana, we will continue with business as usual and the firm will continue to service our clients drawing on our pool of over 100 talented staff members, supported by our partners and associate directors, as well as our other colleagues in the region and internationally,” he said.
