Nine KPMG South Africa senior partners, including Trevor Hoole, Ahmed Jaffer, Mike Oddy and Muhammad Saloojee, quickly left the global giant once news broke of the company’s dodgy relationship with the Gupta family and its complicity in compiling a “misleading” report about a so-called rogue unit at the South African Revenue Service. KPMG will not discuss what they were paid.
