JUBA, 17 August 2012 [Gurtong] – The graduates completed a 24 day intensive training on auditing and are expected to address the challenge of skilled labour and human resource in the institutions. 

In a statement to the press, Auditor General Stephen Wondu said the training of the new recruits will go a long way in boosting the work of the chamber.
 
“It is a new team of auditors whom we have recruited. We are strengthening the Audit Chamber,” Wondu said.

He said the move is aimed at achieving the President’s call which demanded auditing of all the government’s accounts by the end of this year.

“So we are struggling very hard to make sure that the President’s promise is fulfilled,” he said.

Wondu also urged the office of the President and the National Legislative Assembly to ensure that there is a law, which guarantees the independence of the Audit Chamber in executing its roles.

He urged for cooperation from all the government institutions to underscore the importance of the chamber’s work.  

Wondu pointed out inadequate finances as national challenges and appealed for continuous efforts of the international community to support and fill the gap that has been created by the austerity measures.

The Auditor General has so far presented four audited reports on the governments’ accounts.

The latest reports of 2007 and 2008 that were presented to the National Parliament, revealing millions of public money been spent by the various government institutions without satisfactory explanation.
