The Auditor-General's report, I can tell you, never fails to reveal all the misuse and abuse of public funds, the inefficiency and ineptness of administration and management, in the various government agencies and departments.
Year in, year out -- it is the same thing. It is unbelievable that the same things are being revealed, exposed, year in, year out.
Almost 30 years ago, as a rookie (reporter) at the NST, I was given an assignment -- which was to work on the AG's report.
I read with shock, all the misuses, abuses...yada yada yada..
You'd think that over the years, the report will give us pleasant surprises.
Well, nope. Same old same old. Like it's copy-pasting with variations and adjustments.
Of course, the AG report highlights all the wrong in government service and administration. So, it should not be misconstrued that all is not well in government management and administration.
There has been vast improvement in public service, that's without a doubt.
Still, reports of a serious lack of accountability, transparency and responsibility in the management of funds in our country's public and government-linked agencies, are shocking.
It is unacceptable that in this day and age, these negative elements in public service still exist.
Haven't we move on, move ahead?
No.. I don't mean to bigger misuse and abuse!
Will it be better, next year? (I dare ask)
The 21st century, and we're still having the same old problems in these agencies.
Say what? performance first?
