Correctional Services Minister Sibusiso Ndebele on Thursday vowed to turn around the financial management of his department.

"The ministry... has noted issues raised by the Auditor General... The department is currently implementing a turnaround strategy and plan to ensure improved financial management with respect to the identified weaknesses," he said in a statement.

Correctional services received a qualified audit opinion from the AG in its recently-tabled 2011/12 financial statements.

According to the AG, the basis for this opinion was the result, among other things, of inadequate asset management and a failure of its asset control system.

Ndebele said he had "made it abundantly clear" to the department's senior management that he wanted a solution to the problem.

"We are working hard, and we are confident that our collective effort[s] as a department will result in better financial management," he said.
