Johannesburg- Auditor-General Kimi Makwetu has found that some water boards have not taken action against officials responsible for more than R445 million incurred in irregular expenditure in the 2017-18 financial year.
Makwetu revealed this in the audited financial statements contained in the boards’ annual reports tabled in Parliament.
The audit reports showed that none of the boards was immune from flouting the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA) and National Treasury regulations.
On Rand Water, Makwetu said he was unable to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence that some quotations were accepted as per legislation.
Rand Water disclosed R117m in irregular expenditure was incurred.
