The Auditor-General of SA (AGSA) has been elected as the external auditor of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco). After a rigorous bidding process, Unesco announced SA’s supreme audit institution as its new auditors for the 2024 to 2029 term. IoL reports AG Tsakani Maluleke said she, and the national office, are thrilled at the endorsement of their capabilities and the quality of their auditing. ‘This is good news for our country and demonstrates that we are a global force to be reckoned with. It also recognises the hard work of the more than 3 700 AGSA employees,’ she said. Maluleke said that over the years, the AGSA has built an international reputation as a supreme audit institution with solid auditing and governance systems. In 2021, the World Bank ranked the audit office as one of two national audit offices in the world – the other being Seychelles – that have complete independence to carry out their audit mandates in their respective countries. Parliament’s Standing Committee on the Auditor-General commended the AGSA’s latest feat. It added that it is particularly proud of Maluleke for being the first woman appointed to that position.
