SPEAKER HOSTS GAUTENG SPEAKERS FORUM WORKSHOP
Yesterday, The Speaker of Council, in the City of Ekurhuleni, Cllr. Raymond Dlhamini hosted the Gauteng Speakers forum workshop on Improving the Audit Outcomes of Gauteng Municipalities, alongside the Speaker of the Gauteng Provincial Legislature, Hon Lentheng Mekgwe.
The 2021-2022 Audit Outcomes of the Auditor General South Africa recorded a decline of Audit Performance quality in Gauteng Municipalities. Out of 11 Municipalities, only the City of Ekurhuleni and Midvaal have consistently received clean audits.
A clean audit outcome occurs when submitted financial statements are free from material misstatements and there are no material findings on reporting on performance objectives and non-compliance with legislation.
“As the City of Ekurhuleni we are pleased to have been part of hosting yesterday’s workshop, which included all speakers of municipalities in Gauteng and the Department of Local Government, we look forward to paving a way forward towards good and clean governance through improved oversight on financial and non-financial performance reporting and compliance with relevant policies and legislation.”
