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
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
