"I do think there are bigger implications for the country", Lamberti said at the company's Johannesburg headquarters. Veihmeyer this week apologized for "what went wrong in KPMG South Africa" before requesting the meeting with Gordhan.

The Guptas and Zuma deny wrongdoing and say they are victims of a politically motivated witch-hunt.

Moses Kgosana, the former CEO of KPMG's South African unit, resigned as chairman of Imperial's audit committee two weeks ago.

KPMG is the third major firm involved in the controversy from dealings with the Gupta family's group of businesses, after London-based public relations firm Bell Pottinger fell into administration this week.

KPMG said it would donate the $3 million it earned in fees from Gupta-controlled firms to charity and refund $1.7 million it earned compiling a controversial report for the South African tax agency.

The Democratic Alliance, the main opposition party, has led calls for companies that dealt with the Guptas to be investigated and penalized.
