Johannesburg - Only 5% of the local government entities in Gauteng received clean audits, the auditor general's report showed on Tuesday.

The report, presented in the premier's office, showed that 71% of municipal entities in Gauteng received unqualified audits with findings.

It also showed that 24% of the province's municipalities received qualified audit reports without findings.

The City of Johannesburg was the only metro in the country to receive a qualified audit opinion in the 2010/2011 financial year.

However, the country's biggest economic hub did show some improvement, with none of the audited entities receiving disclaimers this year - 7% did in the previous financial year.

Premier Nomvula Mokonyane said the provincial government had already taken action to tackle problems identified during the audit process.

This included setting up a forum to address municipal officials and the training of officials.

"I'm sure that Johannesburg will not be in the same situation in the next audit," said Mokonyane.
