Auditor-general reports an overall, encouraging five-year improvement in local government audit results
PRETORIA – The auditor-general (AG), Kimi Makwetu, today reported an encouraging improvement in the audit results of South Africa’s municipalities over the past five years.
Releasing his report on local government audit outcomes for the 2014-15 financial year, Makwetu revealed that municipalities have shown an encouraging improvement in their audit results over the past five years from 2010-11 to 2014-15. He said the number of municipalities that received financially unqualified audit opinions with no findings (commonly known as “clean audits”) had increased from 13 to 54. However, 18 additional municipal entities also achieved clean audit status, taking the total number of clean audits to 72 in the current period.
