DA: Gauteng govt overspends on overheads
Johannesburg - The Gauteng government should spend less on overheads and more on actions that benefit the public directly, the DA in the province said on Monday.
MPL Mike Moriarty said that according to an SA Institute of Race Relations survey, five provinces spent more than they were allocated for employees’ salaries.
"Gauteng overspent by the most, followed by Limpopo, the North West, the Eastern Cape, and the Northern Cape. Gauteng spent R33bn on personnel, which was 105% of the budget allocated for expenditure on employees and 53% of total expenditure.
"This survey proves that far too much money is spent on overhead activity and not enough money is spent on actions that serve the public directly," he said.
