Steinhoff ex-CEO to appear in parliament next week over accounting scandal

CAPE TOWN, Aug 29 (Reuters) - The former chief executive of crisis-hit Steinhoff is due to appear next week before a committee of South Africa’s parliament, which is probing an accounting scandal that has rocked the retailer, Themba Godi, a co-chair of the panel said on Wednesday.

Markus Jooste, who is under fraud investigation by the South Africa police, resigned in December when Steinhoff uncovered accounting irregularities that sent its share price crashing.
