    ​  City of Tshwane unqualified audit opinion from the Auditor-General reflects our ongoing efforts to stabilise the City's financial health

    Fri, Jun 24, 2022

    The City of Tshwane has taken note of the Auditor-General of South Africa (AGSA) report on the 2020/21 financial year audit outcomes for municipalities across the country. 

    Previously, I communicated that the City received another unqualified audit opinion from the AGSA for the 2020/21 financial year. The unqualified audit opinion states that the City's financial statements are fairly and appropriately presented in all material respects for the year under review. 

    This means that the City is operating in compliance with the Local Government: Municipal Finance Management Act, 2003 (Act 56 of 2003). 

    Our multiparty coalition government respects the independence of the Office of the AGSA and therefore we have taken note of the points of concern raised by the AGSA during the audit process, which include material water and electricity losses. These are largely driven by ageing infrastructure, illegal connections and electricity theft.  

    We intend to adequately address all AGSA concerns and, in some cases, we have already begun the work. We have boosted our debt collection through the #TshwaneYaTima campaign, and the roll-out of prepaid meters is ongoing. 

    We have also increased fines for illegal connections and electricity theft to R200 000 for individual or household accounts and R10 million for business accounts. 

    Providing stringent financial management and oversight is one of the core priorities of our coalition government. We are truly committed to accountable and clean governance.
