The African National Congress
in the Western Cape
has welcomed the improvement overall of municipal reports for the past
Auditor General Kimi Makwethu
on Wednesday presented to Parliament the results stating that 17 municipalities
and municipal entities achieved clean audits.
The Western Cape, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal are the three top performing
provinces with the most municipalities with clean audits.
ANC’s Cobus Grobler said it is
good to do the ticking of the boxes with book keeping and it looks all well and
there is no problem there, but the real issue for municipalities are services
it renders to its people.
Grobler added that especially
the poor people that live in poverty and they have inferior services there.
“How do we get to those people
to help them? That is the real test.” Grobler concluded.
