"Here we’re reflecting into the sectors on human settlements, on health, on public works, on transport on sanitation, and they are the ones if you look at them, only 6 percent of them have clean audits,” she said.

"On paper, there’s been a significant reduction in irregular expenditure from R167-billion in the previous year to R51-billion in the period under review."

Maluleke says greater focus and energy need to be put into performance, planning and management in government.
