Dozens of financial and performance auditors from Ghana, Tanzania and Kenya have joined the Sierra Leone Audit Service to carry out a forensic audit on the activities of the government of Ernest Bai Koroma as recommended by the Government Transition Team (GTT) report and upheld by President Julius Maada Bio. The GTT report alleges widespread corruption and cronyism under the former administration.

A press release from the Audit Service says the 43 auditors who are supported by DFID have already started work which will last for one month, and will target the social security agency (NASSIT), the energy, telecoms and civil works sectors and will cover January 2016 – July 2018.

Sierra Leone’s Deputy Auditor-General in charge of special audits, Tamba Momoh said 11 entities within the four sectors would be audited.

He said that even though the audit service was not subject to the direction of any individual or body in the discharge of its duties, section 119 (7) of the country’s constitution allowed for such request because the law did not “preclude the President, acting in accordance with the advice of cabinet, or Parliament from requesting the Auditor-General in the public interest to audit at any particular time, the accounts of anybody or organisation”.
