DA wants probe into Deloitte over Steinhoff role

South Africa’s main opposition Democratic Alliance (DA) said on Friday it had requested an investigation into Deloitte, the auditors of retail group Steinhoff, after accounting irregularities were uncovered. "The resignation of Markus Jooste, Chief Executive Officer of Steinhoff International Holdings NV, and the announcement that “accounting irregularities” would require investigation, may be one of the biggest corporate scandals ever in South Africa," DA shadow minister of finance David Maynier said in a statement.
