GREATER Kokstad Municipality (GKM) received an unqualified audit opinion from the Auditor-General for the 2016/2017 financial year.

GKM mayor Bheki Mtolo said the outcome shows clean governance and dedication by the municipality.

“For the past five years the municipality has received unqualified audit opinions and it shows there has been improvement.

“The municipality has developed policies and internal controls in the last financial year to assist in achieving a clean audit opinion,” said Mtolo. He said the municipality has filled critical posts and carried out capacity building for employees. Municipal CFO Thando Mketsu said the municipality is going to be strict when it comes to debt collection and will do its best to get a clean audit outcome in the next financial year.

“The municipality has promised the Auditor-General they will perform even better in the next financial year,” said Mketsu.

Municipal manager Lulamile Mapholoba said the municipality is working hard to do its best so that investors, ratepayers and businesses have confidence in the municipality.
