The Auditor General found that government has wasted at least R296 million at national, provincial and local government levels over the past five years.
Unauthorized, irregular, fruitless and wasteful expenditures incurred resulted in huge money losses the last years.
There was a 121% increase in irregular expenditure, and a 68% increase in unauthorized expenses.
About 236% increase in fruitless and wasteful expenditure is a clear proof of reckless management and incapacity.
The culture of “no consequences” has been established by the leadership and it leads to violations by followers who do not express sense of responsibility.
The consequences of mismanagement lead to court cases and claims against government where almost a third of departmental claims face.
Claims that can cover almost 10% of certain entities budget for the coming financial year.
