Auditor-General (AG) Tsakani Maluleke believes government departments achieving clean audit statuses is a building block to better performance, and not evidence that services are being delivered.

"I think a clean audit is not all what we ought to achieve. It's a building block towards achievement and sustained achievement. For us, that is how we see it does not necessarily mean that they have delivered services."

In an interview with News24, Maluleke said while clean audits were imperative, it was not the silver bullet to bring about better services.
