22nd June, Port Elizabeth – The Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA) Board Chairperson Phil Goduka today welcomed the confirmation by the Auditor General that the Agency had retained its clean audit status for the 2015/16 financial period, its fourth consecutive such audit result.
On Wednesday (21st), Auditor General Kimi Makwetu announced the audit outcomes of South Africa’s 263 local municipalities and their entities for the financial period 2015 / 2016. The MBDA is one of ten institutions in Eastern Cape that attained a clean audit, being an unqualified audit with no material findings.
Commenting on the outcomes, Goduka says “The Board, management and staff welcome
the clean audit outcome and recognise that this affirmation is only possible through strong leadership, efficient systems and a supportive parent municipality. Strengthening the agency’s operating systems and procedures is one of our key focus areas in future and to ensure that we continuously improve our efficiencies and delivery around our evolving mandate”.
