2 July 2020 8:48 AM

Yesterday just before the end of our show we received a disturbing call from a distressed Phumla who identified herself as a nurse working for the City of Johannesburg.  
She told us that she is self-isolating at home after testing positive. She made claims that city of Johannesburg Management is telling staff members to keep their covid 19 status to themselves because they don’t want them to face stigma… She also raised concerns around patients that she came into contact with prior to receiving her test results. She is worried that they might have been exposed and no contact was made with them.

Now in the third year of this administration, there was again a regression in the audit outcomes. Over the three-year period, 76 municipalities have regressed with those of only 31 improving.

Irregular expenditure now sitting at R32,06 billion; R4.2 billion lost to fruitless and wasteful expenditure, R1, 26 billion spent on consultants to assist with financial statement preparation. And according to the Auditor-General, government cannot afford to lose money because of poor decision-making, neglect or inefficiencies. What of the R20 billion allocated to municipalities in COVID-19 emergency relief funds if municipalities lack financial controls and nothing is improving?

Bongani joined by Kimi Makwetu, Auditor-General of South Africa.
