Auditor-General briefs Northern Cape media on his new powers, 4 Mar

Auditor-General of South Africa to brief Northern Cape journalists on the new powers given to the AG by Parliament

We would like to invite you to a media briefing session where Auditor-General of South Africa (AGSA) officials will be sharing results of how the auditor-general’s (AG’s) new powers given by Parliament have been implemented since they came into effect in April 2019.

Among others, the new powers give the AG a mandate to compel government officials implicated in irregularities to pay back money out of their pockets to the state. The aim of the session is to afford you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the additional powers given to the AG.
