Lack of accountability shows in MFMA audit results

The 2016-2017 municipal audit results, released by auditor-general Kimi Makwetu, paint a picture of an overall deterioration in compliance with the Municipal Finance Management Act. Some municipalities put pressure on AG staff to suppress poor results – but if audit outcomes are not as desired, Makwetu says, energy should be directed to addressing the problem and not to threatening the auditors.
