Note from the President

As we continually reset, re-adjust and refocus our strategy to make the organisation a leader in the sector and industry, we fully understand that we are planting trees that we may not be able to sit in their shade or enjoy their fruits, hence Vision 2030 is meant to benefit both the present and future generations.

We consider the history of the Institute, the path to becoming an RGA, leadership, and the inspiration drawn as we inaugurate the SAIGA Limpopo region.

Annual Conference: Maqoma gets on board

National president of Abasa Linda Maqoma will join a list of esteemed public speakers, accountants, auditors and thought leaders at the Southern African Institute of Government Auditors (SAIGA) conference.

Maqoma, the founder and chief executive of Nomatshawe Group, will participate in lively discussions and a variety of panel discussions on accounting and auditing issues at the Institute’s 2nd annual conference

Nothing quite moulds a person’s character like adversity. As someone who grew up in the village, the new SAIGA Education Training and Development (ETD) manager, Sello Malatsi, is all too familiar with overcoming adversity, having had to cross rivers to get to school.

Growing up in Makotaseng, a village in Greater Tubatse, it wasn’t hard for Malatsi to quickly understand the need for education in achieving prosperity and success in life.

Tips to beat the winter blues

The country’s interior has been experiencing a cold front sweeping in from the coast, causing temperatures to routinely approach the freezing point.

We are officially on Whatsapp Yay!

It has been long overdue, but the Public Sector Accountancy and Audit Academy (PSAAA) is officially on WhatsApp.

The academy is making this change in an effort to keep up with the fast-paced environment in which we live and to be as efficient as possible.
