Local Government's in Tanzania ignore answering audit questions
Accountable governance of public resources means less audit queries that are not resolved. Many local government administration's in Tanzania clearly fail in this area. The 2009/10 report of the Controller and Auditor General shows that money implied in audit questions that are not addressed in LGAs have hit 122 billion shillings, its highest in five years. Only five Councils did well by addressing all audit questions from previous years in 2009/10 (Iringa Municipal Counci, Njombe Town Council, Kilolo District Council, Chato District Council and Songea Municipal Council). These are not shown here. Check out which councils ignored audit questions in 2009/10.
Making data accessible has never been easier. Google has launched a Public Data Explorer which makes it easy to explore large datasets. Within a matter of minutes one produces a chart like the one below that compares growth in per capita income for Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda with that of the World average. It also shows growth in per capita income for South Korea, a country that in the 1960s was a rich (poor) as any of the East African countries.
