Capricorn District Municipality has achieved clean audit opinion for the financial year 2021/22.
This was confirmed by the Auditor General during an ordinary Council meeting held on Friday 27 January 2023 when Council considered and adopted the Annual Report for the same financial year.
The Auditor General, Mr Matshwenyego Rashokeng told Council that he was happy with the set of financial statements that were submitted for audit, and that clean audit means that every cent that was spent was accounted for.
The chairperson of the audit committee, Mr Stanley Ngobeni said the clean audit outcome comes after the municipality successfully cleared all findings from the previous financial year. He expressed gratitude to Council for supporting the Committee on its mission of the ‘road to clean audit’.
Executive Mayor Cllr Mamedupi Teffo said she was pleased that the Municipality has managed to reclaim clean audit. “This is in line with the commitment I made during the inauguration of this Council to put up remedial audit action plan, tighten internal controls and clear all audit findings from the previous financial year. We commend and thank all councillors and staff for rallying behind this commitment to reposition our Institution as a revered point of benchmark in financial management”, she said.
Meanwhile, Polokwane Municipality has improved from qualified to unqualified audit opinion, while Blouberg Local Municipality and Molemole Local Municipality retained their unqualified audit opinion. Lepelle Nkumpi Local Municipality has achieved a qualified audit opinion.
CDM has committed to assist and support all local municipalities to get things right, clear their material findings, and achieve clean audit in terms of #OperationCleanAudit 2024.
