Technical team to explore lifestyle audits modalities

Friday, August 31, 2018

Deputy President David Mabuza says a multi-stakeholder technical team has been set up in the Presidency to explore ways of conducting lifestyle audits in the public service.

He said this when he fielded questions in the National Assembly on Thursday.

“The President established a technical team under the leadership of the Director-General in the Presidency to explore various options in the conduct of lifestyle audits.

“The team consisting of various key stakeholders in the law enforcement, public service and taxation section, is currently seized with the matter,” he said.

Mabuza said he has been advised by the Director-General in the Presidency, Cassius Lubisi, that a stakeholder roundtable was scheduled to take place by the end of September.

The aim of the stakeholder roundtable is to finalise recommendations that will be presented to the President for his consideration, Mabuza said.

“Given that this process is still underway, once it is finalised, the public will be informed of its implementation by the President,” he said. –
