Home Affairs gets first clean audit

Pretoria - The home affairs department achieved its first unqualified audit opinion in 16 years, its minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said on Thursday.

This was a historic day for her department and in line with its commitment to the public, she told reporters.

"This is not a miracle, but a result of consistent hard work."

All necessary financial management mechanisms had been in place during the 2010/11 financial year, she said.

"In our walk towards an unqualified audit opinion, the department of home affairs has become a normal department simultaneously achieving improved levels of service delivery."

Dlamini-Zuma hoped this would inspire officials to do more in building a new department.
