North West - 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 chairman 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 five percent of the country's municipalities obtained clean audit reports in the financial year 2011/2012, the Auditor General revealed on Monday. - Sapa
