Johannesburg - Not one Eastern Cape municipality has
obtained a clean audit, according to a report on Monday.
The Dispatch Online reported provincial Auditor-General
Singa Ngqwala as stating that municipalities in the province had regressed
further in their 2011-2012 audit outcomes since the 2010-2011 financial year.
Nine municipalities had unqualified audits but with
There were 19 councils with a qualified opinion, eleven
remained unchanged and five improved from disclaimers and adverse opinions.
Local government MEC Mlibo Qoboshiyane said he was disturbed
by the regression and by the fact that once again none of the four
municipalities had clean audits.
He said he would work with all mayors to address the
situation but where there was no alternative he would use the powers bestowed
on him by the constitution and other laws of the land.
