NEW AUDITOR GENERAL

must assist municipalities in taking the corrective measures that will ensure a clean audit. Maluleke had an early start, when at the age of nine, she worked on the cashier’s till at the family supermarket in Shoshanguve during the school holidays. It is from here that her love and passion for accountancy developed and grew. At first she wanted to follow in the footsteps of her late father, who was a judge at the Venda High Court. He advised her to study law and after matric she enrolled at the University of Cape Town (UCT) with the intent to study law. However, the pull of accountancy, her first love, was too strong and she changed direction from law to accountancy. She completed her undergraduate B.Com. Accounting degree in 1996, followed by her postgraduate degree in 1997. In 2016 she received a Diploma in Development and Public Management from the University of the Witwatersrand.

experience in the private and public sectors, spanning diverse areas that include auditing, consulting, corporate advisory, development finance, i boards, including the Public Investment Corporation (PIC), the Independent Regulator and the Board for Auditors. She currently serves as chair of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants. She has also served on the Presidential Broad-Based Black Economic Advisory Council, where she led a sub-committee that developed recommendations that influenced key amendments to legislation and regulations relating to BBBEE. In her new position Maluleke must also look at strategic government objectives, programs and initiatives and respond to identified risks in her audit work. Certainly no mean task, but we believe the Office of the Auditor General is once again in safe hands. She is certainly an accomplished and inspirational leader and we wish her well.
