UMZIMVUBU MAYOR WELCOMES UNQUALIFIED AUDIT OPINION FROM THE AUDITOR GENERAL SA.
The Auditor General has given Umzimvubu Local Municipality an unqualified audit opinion, noting
that the Municipality is in a solvent position and able to meet its financial obligations. The audit
outcome follows a qualified audit opinion obtained for the past 4 consecutive financial years. The
Auditor General has also found that Umzimvubu is able to continue providing quality basic services
to its residents which is a significant improvement from the previous financial year.
Umzimvubu Local Municipality hails the unqualified audit opinion and whilst there is still little to
improve on, the Municipal Council will continue to exercise its oversight role by monitoring the
implementation of the audit turnaround strategy.
“The audit opinion comes at a time when our institution is undergoing political and administrative
transformation. Allow me to applaud the efforts of the previous council and pledge that we will only
improve from here onwards. This outcome is significant, and I can only be proud of all the officials
that were involved in ensuring that we indeed achieve these results. We will continue in our concerted
efforts to manage our cash flow and generate cash backed surpluses to fund future capital
expenditure” said Umzimvubu Mayor, Cllr Zukiswa Ndevu.
“The municipality previously had material findings on assets, revenue and receivables amongst
others, however this outcome has demonstrated a significant improvement from the previous
financial years. As this Municipality, we remain cognisant on the path to deliver basic and quality
services to our communities. A new dawn is upon us” concluded the Mayor.
