GARDEN ROUTE NEWS - Knysna and Bitou municipalities have been handed an unqualified audit opinion by the Auditor General of South Africa (AGSA), which while not a clean audit, is still a positive outcome.
In a statement issued by provincial environmental affairs minister Anton Bredell, the AG's findings show a positive outcome for the province.
“Overall we are pleased to note that 25 out of 30 municipalities in the province received unqualified audit opinions," Bredell said.
"Our local municipalities (Bitou and Knysna), as well as the Garden Route District Municipality, all received an unqualified audit opinion from the AGSA, along with 10 others in the province.
"In short, an unqualified audit opinion means that the financial statements "contain no material misstatements"."
