The Auditor-General Mildred Chiri’s latest report shows that a number of ministries did not have an updated risk register and no formal risk assessments were done to cover key processes in 2019 and come up with mitigation measures for the identified risks as required by the law.
“In addition, some Ministries did not have documented and approved risk management policies and tools to identify and mitigate possible risks in their operations,” reads the report.
“This goes against the tenets of good corporate governance which requires a documented and approved risk management policy.”
