For the fourth consecutive year the Western Cape once again produced the best results in the Auditor-General Kimi Makwetu's consolidated report for the 2015/16 provincial and local audit outcomes.
According to the report, the Western Cape produced the best results with 85% clean audits. Second in line was Gauteng, where the DA governs two major metros - Johannesburg and Tshwane with 52% clean audits. The poorest outcomes were in North West (9%)' KwaZulu-Natal (8%) and the Free State (6%).
KwaZulu-Natal had the highest amount of irregular expenditure of R7.78 billion (increased by 218%), Free State had R3.49 billion (increased by 181%), Limpopo had R1.545 billion (increased by 150%) and Eastern Cape amounted to R1.14 billion (increased by 92%).
The DA is proud to be leading the way in clean and transparent governance and we will continue to do so. It is clear that where we govern, we bring much needed change. We believe that across South Africa, especially in the ANC-run provinces where our people suffer on a daily basis, the ANC will be rejected and come 2019, South Africans will vote for a new beginning under the DA.
