Economy This year's Audit to reflect whether the aspirations of Government are being...

Auditor General, Dick Sichembe has said that the audits to be carried out this year will reflect the aspirations of Government as Outlined in the Seventh National Development Plan.

Dr. Sichembe said that this year’s focus will be assessing whether the goals of the Seventh National Development Plan of transforming Zambia into a middle-income economy were being realized.

And, Dr. Sichembe has called for collaboration between the Office and audited entities stressing that this year, the office will follow strict timelines in the audit process.

He has, however, warned that there will not be any compromise on professionalism and integrity and that his office will uphold the code of ethics.

Dr Sichembe was speaking when he opened the Planning meeting for the Office of the Auditor General in Lusaka yesterday.

Dr Sichembe said that this will be achieved through Performance Audits which go beyond the financial audits by interrogating the Economy, Efficiency and Effectiveness of Government programs and activities.

He reminded senior management to take stock of the strides made in implementing the Office’s 2017-2021 strategic plan and where possible adjust the Strategic direction.

This is according to a statement released to ZNBC News in Auditor General Head of Public Relations Ellen Chikale.

  1. I don’t believe Dick Sichembe. He’s former accountant-general in the Ministry of Finance. Wht was he accounting if someone could build 48 flats and he didn’t hv a clue. Tell it to the marines, Dick.

  2. WE KNOW THE AUDIT WILL BE COOKED IN ORDER TO MAKE THE PF LOOK LIKE KINGS !!! LET’S GET INDEPENDANT AUDITORS WHO CAN LOOK INTO EVERY NGWEE THAT WAS EARNED AND SPENT —- LET’S SEE WHERE THE TAX PAYERS MONEY HAS GONE – HOW MANY POCKETS DID IT FILL. WITHOUT INDEPENDANT AUDITORS TO VERIFY WE WILL NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU COME UP WITH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Nothing much is likely change.Auditor general’s report are a circus as nobody seems to pay attention to their relevance. Colosal sums are misappropriated and misapplied yet nobody faces the chop except for a few selected Tongas and Lozis in the public service.These are lofty statements that blow hot air but nothing comes up.Conduit for misusing tax payers’ money

  4. In 1986, Arsenal had a player by the name of Dick. He got injured and the headlines in the tabloids was ” Arsenal will player without their Dick” Arsenal was very annoyed with this headline. Upon seeing that Arsenal was annoyed they changed the headlines ” Arsenal will be playing with their Dick out” It was surprising that a lot of ladies attended that particular match
