South Africa's Auditor-General paints a bleak picture

Auditor-General Terence Nombembe has criticised the government for the weakening of the pillars of governance, Business Day reported yesterday.
Nombembe also expressed concern about the vulnerability of his office in the wake of what he said was a growing lack of support from the government to his warning about this deterioration.
He said management supply chains, service delivery, security of government information and accuracy of government reports were deteriorating.
"Things are serious, and they are even more serious than we thought they were," he said at the opening of business consultancy Deloitte's new building.
"They are more serious because the people employed by the government to do work are the least prepared and equipped to do it. The situation is dire.
". What we are saying is not taken seriously, not by the government, not by ourselves and those who need to do something about it."
