STATEMENT OF HIS WORSHIP THE MAYOR OF RAYMOND MHLABA CLLR BANDILE KETELO ON THE AUDIT ACHIEVEMENTS ATTAINED BY THE MUNICIPALITY DURING THE 2016/2017 FINANCIAL YEAR.

Raymond Mhlaba Municipality has been informed by the Office of the Auditor General that it's performance during the 2016/2017 financial year has made a remarkable improvement.

The Raymond Mhlaba Municipality has received an unqualified audit opinion and it's entity, Raymond Mhlaba Economic Development Agency has received a clean audit without findings. This is an unprecedented achievement especially if one is considering the bumpy road that we have traversed in which the municipality had a momentous task of merging two erstwhile municipalities, Nxuba and Nkonkobe with two different financial systems.

The municipality had to negotiate serious challenges, not least, a huge historic debt of Eskom and other creditors, a huge deficit, a small revenue base, a huge service delivery backlog, and most of all, political rumblings that sought to dislodge good governance. It is thanks to the stewardship and resolute attitude of our council that we have been able to overcome these challenges.

We want to commend our staff who have spent sleepless nights trying to bring financial order in a new and challenging administrative environment. We have had our fights and conflicts with them, but that was all for the purpose of inculcating good governance. We should also commend the leadership and guidance provided by our Audit Committee and hard work they have invested in their responsibilities.

We are aware of the negative findings identified in the report and we are determined to rectify them going forward to ensure we catch up and achieve the clean audit that our development agency received.
