A total of ¢17.4 billion in financial irregularities were flagged by the Auditor-General in its latest report submitted to parliament for the 2021 financial year.

This represents a 36% rise compared to that of 2020, following an audit of the accounts of at least 101 institutions.

Similar audit reports conducted on institutions in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 show irregularities to the tune of ¢12 billion, ¢3 billion, ¢5.4 billion and ¢12.8 billion respectively.

Meanwhile, scores of citizens are calling on the Auditor-General to take punitive actions against persons and institutions who were implicated in its recent findings.

According to the concerned stakeholders, this will deter others in the future.
