THE Umzumbe Municipality has once again received its fourth consecutive clean audit opinion (CAO) for the 2016/2017 financial year.

Umzumbe spokesperson Sabelo Ncwane said the news was announced in council at the end of the financial year.

Ncwane said the Auditor General shared with council the good news and said the necessary evidence from the municipality was submitted and thoroughly scrutinised.

The AG said congratulations are in order for the municipality for maintaining a clean audit status for the fourth time.

Umzumbe Mayor Cllr Sizwe Ngcobo applauded the municipality and said he is delighted that Umzumbe, being a rural municipality with limited resources, receives such good results.

“Achieving a clean audit is difficult, but maintaining it is even harder. I would like to thank council for an outstanding job overseeing all processes.

“Their dedication has been excellent for the past four years. I would also like to congratulate our administration department and managers for its sound financial administration. If it wasn’t for them we would have not achieved this.

“Our finance department, led by our chief financial officer Kush Audan, has worked tirelessly, educating all of us on the pros and cons of financial administration,” he said.

Umzumbe matched its clean audit opinions with many other achievements, including projects like the Ntashana access road, among others.

The municipality says though, certain roads still need some work, especially those that are affected by heavy rain, but assurance was given that at a later stage the municipality would look into developing those roads.
