Dr Terence Nombembe to lead State Capture Inquiry
STATEMENT by The African Women Chartered Accountants (AWCA) Forum- 03 March 2018
The AWCA wishes to extend its well wishes and congratulations to SAICA CEO Dr. Terence Nombembe on his secondment to the Judicial Commission on State Capture.
The AWCA believes that the request for Dr. Nombembe to join the Commission is a vote of confidence not only in him but in the Chartered Accountancy profession and indicates that the profession continues to play a pivotal role in upholding ethics and good governance. Furthermore, in light of the recent scandals that have plagued the profession, the trust bestowed upon Dr. Nombembe reaffirms our belief that the acts of a few do not define the entire profession and this is one more step in the right direction for chartered accountants to restore public trust.
The AWCA further congratulates Ms. Fanisa Lamola on her appointment as interim CEO during Dr. Nombembe’s absence. While we recognize that this is an interim measure, we commend the SAICA Board for this transformative move which can only bode well for future gender parity within the organization and the profession as a whole.
We wish you both well and have no doubt that you
will fly the CA (SA) flag high.
