JOHANNESBURG – International consultancy group McKinsey is accused of ignoring warnings of the risks associated with Gupta-linked Trillian.
Reuters reported on Wednesday that two former employees claim McKinsey was made aware of the problems as far back as 2013.
The consultancy is said to have ignored the advise as it sought to secure a contract with Eskom.
Mckinsey maintains it cut ties with Trillian last year after determining the company was unfit. It has since denied any wrongdoing and has launched its own internal investigation.
Corruption Watch has indicated it will lay criminal charges against McKinsey in the United States.
