Tender Corruption Part II

2012-07-23 20:02
The ANC has created a run-away-train like we have never seen in the history of this country. Corruption may be an issue they lightly brush over, but they seem clueless on how they are digging their own grave.

This is an extract from a news report on News24 today.

“According to his report, only five percent of municipalities obtained clean audit reports in the financial year 2011/2012.

Procurement to the value of R3.5bn could not be audited because municipalities had not provided the required information or documentation.

In 46 percent of the audited municipalities, contracts were awarded to employees, councillors, and other state officials. A total of 65 percent of municipalities used unfair or uncompetitive procurement processes.

Nombembe said there were errors in information about finances, skills shortages, and service delivery.

"About 91 percent of municipalities employ consultants in areas where they have people employed to do the job.

"There is also the area of IT and controls, where the bulk of information at local government is housed and the controls to access and security of that information are very important."

None of the municipalities in the Eastern Cape, Free State, Gauteng, Northern Cape, and North West received clean audit reports.

None of the country's metros received clean audits, with financial statements not submitted in time for auditing by 13 percent of municipalities”.

What amazes me is Gorhan’s casual don’t care attitude. In a previous article I mentioned that he promised accountability on 22 February 2012. Please tell me when you have shocking statistic like this in front of you, how long do you need to send in people to correct these matters?

We sit in this country with hundreds of thousands of white people with expertise that have all been retrenched or given packages. Those were the people that once held these positions in government and municipalities. If he had any intentions of saving the country from complete destruction at the hands of these thieves, why not bring those people back into service and help all of us back on our feet again?

I am sad for the land of my birth. This is heartbreaking to see this magnificent country wash down the sewer in this manner.
