The executive worked on the banking group’s audit, with over 40 other partners from both KPMG and Deloitte.

The bank, however, says several reviews were conducted on each piece of work completed and has been assured that it was of high quality.

KPMG announced over the weekend, that two senior partners had resigned because of their work on VBS bank.

The two are facing a disciplinary hearing for not disclosing financial interests with the bank.
