Supply chain management in Nelson Mandela Bay is in utter disarray, having led to over R1.3 billion in irregular expenditure – one of the country’s worst offenders.
NMB accounts respectively for 48.6% and 40.9% of all 8 South African metros’ fruitless/wasteful and irregular expenditure.
The Auditor-General yesterday requested that respective councils consider his findings and investigate where necessary.
Thus, the DA will call for a credible, independent forensic audit of NMB’s Supply Chain Management to stop the rot in this department.
The Auditor-General’s scathing findings of financial mismanagement in the Bay have left the country reeling as it comes to light that the ANC metro government misspent over R2 billion through irregular, wasteful, fruitless and unauthorised means.
The DA can win Nelson Mandela Bay at this year’s local government election to usher in a clean government. Once in government, the DA will conduct forensic audits of all directorates and discipline anyone found to be implicated in fraud and corruption.
The DA is committed to stopping corruption in Nelson Mandela Bay once and for all. This is the change we need to NMB move forward again.
