Institute of Directors in SA says ineffective governance a major problem in municipalities

# The Institute of Directors in South Africa says ineffective governance lies at the heart of municipal dysfunction. The Auditor General, Tsakani Maluleke’s Material Irregularities in Local Government report, reveals that municipalities accrued almost 5.2-billion-rand in material losses. This is due to irregularities that include non-compliance with financial regulations and suspected fraud. The institute’s CEO, Parmi Natesan, says appointments made on political or other improper grounds are the root cause of the challenges hamstringing the state at all levels.
