Auditor General Junias Kandjeke has begun a forensic audit into the books of August 26, a company that has failed to account for public funds since 1998. Kandjeke on Thursday highlighted that his office has started work in auditing the company’s books and the reports will be published once done. The Namibia Press Agency quotes him as saying, “I will comment further on the matter when the time is right, but yes, we are mandated to audit August 26”. August 26 and its subsidiaries have been at the center of public criticism for their lack of accountability despite the fact that they have been recipients of multimillion-dollar Government contracts.
