THE Kellogg Foundation, which had donated R215million in grants to southern Africa in the year to August 2008, and about R2,8billion since 1986, has closed its office in South Africa.
The foundation said yesterday that though the decision takes place against the backdrop of an ongoing forensic investigation into financial irregularities in its South African office, the decision to close the office was made for budgetary reasons.
Sterling Speirn, chief executive of the Foundation, said: "We are trimming budgets in all regions, given the reduction in our overall asset base."
In January Kellogg dismissed its regional director, Mandi Rukuni, while another former employee, Sabina Brand, appeared in court.
It closed its office in Pretoria at the end of October and suspended operations in the region after uncovering significant financial irregularities and other misconduct at its South African office.
