Johannesburg - The poor audit performance of North West
municipalities is worrying, the province's standing committee on public
accounts (Scopa) said on Wednesday.
"We have called on the auditor general's office to do a
formal presentation to the committee on all issues raised on the audit
outcomes, and also to help us come up with interventions that will
assist these municipalities to improve," said committee chairperson Hlomane
"We want to make both political and administrative intervention," he said.
For the second consecutive year, none of the 24 local
municipalities and four district municipalities in the province had
received a clean audit.
The Bojanala Platinum district municipality and Ratlou local municipality received unqualified audit opinions with findings.
Only 5% of the country's municipalities
obtained clean audit reports in the financial year 2011/2012, the auditor general disclosed on Monday.
