Tribute to South African Auditor-General Kimi Makwetu

Issued by Archbishop Thabo on November 12, 2020:

“A great ethical, principled and courageous moral leader has died. Outgoing Auditor-General Kimi Makwetu's service to South Africa is unparalleled in its commitment to the values of good governance and his determination to make the country accountable for public spending.

“It is a great pity that despite his and his staff's work, the number of qualified audits remains so high, and that so much money is wasted on expenditure which does not serve the common good. I call on all South Africans, and especially those running municipalities, to commit to serving all of our citizens with integrity.

“Kimi Makwetu addressed Anglican formal events and our Synod of Bishops on a number of occasions and always pressed home the importance of honesty, integrity and courage. We will miss him and send our condolences to his family and loved ones.”
