Business Leadership South Africa (BLSA) head Busisiwe Mavuso has denied the organisation was too soft on Bain & Company South Africa, as critics continue to question why the management and business consultancy wasn't expelled. 

Bain's South African division voluntarily withdrew from BLSA this week, saying it did not want its continued membership to "distract from the important work BLSA does on behalf of the business community". 

The announcement came two weeks after the release of the first part of the State Capture Inquiry report, which found that Bain colluded with former president Jacob Zuma and former SA Revenue Service (SARS) commissioner Tom Moyane to "capture" the tax agency.
