Durban - Bartenders, welders, petrol attendants and labourers are among the candidates who have applied for Terence Nombembe’s position of auditor general, it was reported on Wednesday.

Among the minimum requirements for the job are a Master’s degree and several years of auditing and accounting experience, but this hasn’t stopped many of the unqualified hopefuls from applying, The Mercury reported.
Nombembe’s term of office expires at the end of November.

The committee has shortlisted six people who are to be interviewed next Wednesday.

Nombembe’s deputy, Kimi Makwetu, is at the top of the list.

Advocate Nonkosi Cetshwayo, who heads the Office on Institutions Supporting Democracy in the National Assembly, said the 90 applicants had to be divided into an “A list” and a “B list”.

“The A list is the reflection of all the CVs received, but in a summarised version. If you look at them you will see we received CVs from a whole lot of people ranging from matrics, labourers, welders and the like,” Cetshwayo said.

“As the secretariat we then looked at the list with an attempt to assist and facilitate the shortlisting by the members and we came up with the B list, which is made up of six candidates.”
