Finweek English Edition - - In Brief -

The South African So­cial Se­cu­rity Agency (Sassa) has re­ceived a qual­i­fied au­dit due to it amass­ing R1.712bn in ir­reg­u­lar ex­pen­di­ture, re­ports Busi­nesslive. Ac­cord­ing to the busi­ness web­site, the im­proper spend­ing was mainly due to non-com­pli­ance on pro­cure­ment and con­tract man­age­ment. On tabling Sassa’s an­nual re­port in Par­lia­ment, au­di­tor-gen­eral Kimi Mak­wetu said the agency, which is re­spon­si­ble for giv­ing grants to mil­lions of poor peo­ple, failed to take any dis­ci­plinary ac­tion against the of­fi­cials who were re­spon­si­ble for the ir­reg­u­lar spend­ing.
