Poor audits worry North West

2012-07-25 15:54

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 Chauke.

"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.

    two years running and the place is up to s&^%t and NOW you want to start to worry? Why was this not addressed in the first place when it all started falling apart? Now you want to have an intervention? How about you just go and clean the damn lot up and stop the corruption and under-delivery?

      Worry? Now do the typical ANC thing. Don't set goals to be achieved. Don't set punitive measures if they aren't. Just talk about it (preferably at a 5-star hotel), and then continue exactly the same as before. It's been the ANC way for nearly 20 years; why change now?

    Worry! You should hang your heads in shame instead of worry! Who are you going to fire because of this? Who?
