Sedibeng Clean Audit

Executive Mayor, Cllr. MS Mofokeng is flanked by Minister of CoGTA, Pravin Gordhan and Deputy Minister Andries Nel at the GCIS offices in Tswane as the AG of South Africa presented the Consolidated general report on the audit outcomes of local government for 2012/2013.
  The Executive Mayor of Sedibeng was amongst a handful of Mayor’s from all of South Africa invited by the Auditor General of SA, Kimi Makwetu,  to attend a media briefing on the release of the 2012/2013 Consolidated General Report on the audit outcomes of local government. The AG’s report, his first since his appointment last year, covered the audit outcomes of South Africa’s municipalities and municipal entities – these have a combined total expenditure of R268 billion for the  financial year under review (2012-13). This expenditure was made up of R62 billion for employment  cost (including councillor remunerations), R166 billion for goods and services, and R40 billion in capital  expenditure.

Across South Africa, out of the 319 audits completed, 22 municipalities and 8 municipal entities achieved clean audits. Sedibeng District Municipality was amongst this notable group. This constitutes an overall 9% as compared to the 5% obtained in 2012. And, amongst the 30 clean audits, 13 have sustained this achievement since 2011-12.  Makwetu said that auditees in this category had demonstrated impeccable levels of discipline and  oversight in their financial management and operational activities.  “At these auditees, the breakdown of controls is easily detected and corrected timeously. Such environments are characterised by readily available documentation. Most importantly, they have accountable managers and leaders who are able to provide explanations and additional evidence in support of the transactions they are reporting on. They also have the support of strong oversight by mayors and councils that back the efforts of municipal managers and chief financial officers.” Also in attendance, and addressing the media, was Minister of CoGTA, Pravin Gordhan and Deputy Minister Andries Nel.
