WC gets the basics right #100%CleanAudit

The Western Cape government has received a 100% clean audit for the 2015-2016 financial year.

MEC of Finance in the Western Cape, Dr Ivan Meyer, says a clean audit simply means the government in Western Cape is getting basic things right.

Speaking to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies, Meyer further explained the province's day to day operations and its values.

As MEC of Finance my top priority is respect for the tax payers money, act inline with the Constitution.

Meyer says they get it right because they appoint into office people who are fit for the post and have zero tolerance on corruption.

This is the fourth year in a row that the Western Cape has led audit outcomes in the country.

If you appoint people who are not fit, things go horribly wrong like what is happening in the rest of the country.
