EXECUTIVE MAYOR CALLS FOR RESTRAINT AS AG REPORT REMAINS DELAYED
I am fully aware of the fact that the 2022/23 audit report has still not been tabled in Council. I appreciate that the delayed delivery of the Auditor General’s report is frustrating for the work of Council.
I also understand that many Councillors might be finding it hard to remain patient at this pressing time as the current situation might be causing challenges in operating the City’s financials. However, I need to emphasize that this matter is being attended to by a team from both municipality and the AGSA in order to expedite the release of the report.
I appeal to all political parties serving in our Council to exercise more patience and give space to the teams to finalise their work. At this time all of us as Councillors must ensure that service delivery happens on the ground and that our residents are prioritized.
