Geography, History and Economy

Area: 3 698km²
Description: Mahikeng Local Municipality (previously known as Mafikeng Local Municipality) is located in Mahikeng (Mafikeng), the capital city of the North West province, and is the seat of the Provincial Legislature and the majority of the National State Departments regional offices. Mahikeng Local Municipality was brought about by the new Local Government transformation in South Africa. It is a Category B municipality established in terms of section 12 of the Municipal Structures Act (MSA). Nestled next to the Botswana border, Mahikeng is just a three-hour drive from Johannesburg and about 294km from Pretoria. Its rich and diverse history dates back to 1852, when the town was founded, and 1899 to 1902 during the Anglo-Boer War, the Mafikeng Siege. Its town is home to the Mahikeng Museum, with its antique steel ceiling, old town clock, Sol Plaatje’s history, and display of rock species. The municipality is considerably bigger than the other four local municipalities located within the area of jurisdiction of Ngaka Modiri Molema District Municipality. The neighbouring local municipalities that border the Mahikeng Local Municipality are: Ramotsere Moiloa Local Municipality (Zeerust Local Municipality), Tswaing Local Municipality, Ditsobotla Local Municipality and Ratlou Local Municipality (Setla-Kgobi Local Municipality). The Mahikeng Airport, situated 5km west of the Mmabatho CBD, boasts a landing strip of 4.6km, one of the longest runways in the world.

Financial Audit Outcomes

The objective of an audit of financial statements is to express an opinion on whether the financial statements fairly represent the financial position of the auditee at financial year-end and the results of its operations for the financial year.

The Auditor-General can express one of the following audit opinions:

Clean audit outcome: The financial statements are free from material misstatements (in other words, a financially unqualified audit opinion) and there are no material findings on reporting on performance objectives or non-compliance with legislation.

Financially unqualified with findings: The financial statements contain no material misstatements. Unless the Auditor General expresses a clean audit outcome, findings have been raised on either reporting on predetermined objectives or non-compliance with legislation, or both these aspects.

Qualified audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements in specific amounts, or there is insufficient evidence for the Auditor General to conclude that specific amounts included in the financial statements are not materially misstated.

Adverse audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements that are not confined to specific amounts, or the misstatements represent a substantial portion of the financial statements.

Disclaimer of audit opinion: The auditee provided insufficient evidence in the form of documentation on which to base an audit opinion. The lack of sufficient evidence is not confined to specific amounts, or represents a substantial portion of the information contained in the financial statements.
