Unauthorised expenditures (about 26 bn rand)

October 20, 2011

By de Lange:

“The Auditor-general has uncovered billions of rand in unauthorised, irregular and fruitless and wasteful expenditure in the audit of
government books for the 2010/11 financial year.

Auditor-General Terrence Nombembe and his team identified a whopping R26.4 billion in such spending – up from R22.4bn in the previous
year – which includes instances of tender processes being ignored or subverted, friends and relatives of public servants
participating in government procurement and a lax attitude to monitoring how taxes are spent.”
