Johannesburg - Municipalities must work together to achieve clean administrations, Auditor General Terence Nombembe said on Tuesday.

"It is clear that if... we continue to work in isolation, the chances of us achieving greater mileage in local government are going to be compromised," he told a SA Local Government Association (Salga) conference in Midrand.

He suggested regular meetings of local government leaders to find ways to work together.

The arrangement should include Salga, provincial treasuries, the AG's office, provincial government departments and district municipalities.

"So that from time to time we do get together and say, what would be the ingredient... to achieve sound financial governance in local government," Nombembe said.

"This does not happen at the moment," he said.

A recent report by Nombembe found that only 13 out of 343 municipalities in South Africa achieved clean audits in the financial year 2011/12.
