i) Audit is regarded as a unit despite section 92(1) stating that every District, municipality and Town Council shall have an audit department.This has led to loss of morale of audit staff and migration of audit staff to finance department. This impunity where the law is disregarded is not good and it is contempt of parliament which made the law.
ii) Inadequate funding yet there are many auditable units.
iii) Inadequate staffing due to a very small structure provided for.
