Deputy Auditor-General Tsakani Maluleke.


Chapter 9 institutions are critical vehicles that keep South Africa’s democracy on track and the office of the Auditor-General is especially critical for ensuring that at municipal, provincial and national levels public spending and adherence to governance principles are prioritised.
