The Democratic Alliance has welcomed the improvements in the local government financial audit results for the 2013/2014 financial year.

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.

The DA’s Yaseen Cresle said the audit results are very telling and Minister Pravin Gordhan needs to ensure proper systems are in place to get rid of public officials who are looting the public purse.

Cresle said we believe we can and should be more responsive to the needs of the people, we believe we can be more transparent and accountable to those we serve.

“The fact of the matter remains that with some of these municipalities that cannot manage finances properly, it cannot deliver the essential services the people in our country need” Cresle added.
