South Africa's audit regulator has acknowledged that it investigated former SAA board member Yakhe Kwinana for improper conduct four years ago, but dismissed the complaint as there were "no reasonable prospects of success".

Kwinana, a chartered accountant and head of an auditing firm, served as an SAA director between 2009 and 2016. For part of her tenure, she was the head of the airline's audit and risk committee.

The decisions she took during her seven years at the airline were harshly criticised in the first part of the State Capture Inquiry report released earlier this month. Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, who chaired the commission of inquiry, found that Kwinana had displayed a "wanton disregard" for the airline's best interests.
