The Auditor-General’s Office is ready to fulfil President Mnangagwa’s stern stance against corruption and is in the process of training some of its staff to carry out forensic audits. Mrs Chiri said they were concerned with failure by some ministries and parastatals to implement recommendations they make in their reports. “That is an issue of concern, that year after year we issue the same recommendations, but they are not implemented,” she said. “So, what we have resolved to do is that for the recommendation that we would have issued in the previous year we follow them up in the progress of implementation and report accordingly in our reports. “If you go to our reports you will find that at the end of each audited ministry we have got a section which says progress in implementation of previous recommendations and we also submit those issues to the Public Accounts Committee so that when they interrogate those accounting officers they ask how far have you gone (in implementing recommendations).”
