Western Cape Best-Governed Province in South Africa!

Late in 2014, the Auditor General told South Africa’s parliament
that the Western Cape is by far the best-governed province in South

In the last financial year, the Western Cape’s 23 government
departments and entities received 18 clean audits and 5 unqualified
audits with findings. This is a much better performance than any
other province and bears testimony to the only province governed by
the Democratic Alliance. The rest of SA’s 9 provinces are run by
the ANC.

The Auditor General singled out the efforts of the DA-run province,
stating about the Western Cape that political and administrative
leadership set the tone for clean audit outcomes at all provincial
cabinet meetings.

In the Western Cape 78% of departments produced clean audits.
Gauteng comes in at a very distant second place with 54%.

These results unfortunately show how the rest of the provinces
under the ANC continue to be mismanaged. Eastern Cape, North West
and Limpopo are in a particularly bad state, with only 15%, 3% and
4% of departments and entities receiving clean audits respectively.

It is of major concern that the National Government, Kwa-Zulu Natal
and Limpopo regressed on their audit findings. The AG cited lack of
internal control, political will and a major lack of consequences
for offending accounting officers, as the reasons for failing to
drive clean audit outcomes in ANC-run departments.

The fact of the matter is that if a government cannot manage its
finances properly, it cannot deliver the services the people need.
