Geography, History and Economy

Area: 4 758km²
Description: Kannaland Local Municipality is classified as a Category B municipality and is responsible for basic service provision to the towns of Calitzdorp, Ladismith, Vanwyksdorp and Zoar, as well as the surrounding farming communities. Kannaland is situated about 340km north-east of Cape Town along the famous tourism Route 62. It is linked by tarred main roads to all other major centres, such as Oudtshoorn (100km), Montagu (139km), George (160km), Mossel Bay (185km) and Port Elizabeth (420km). Both the administrative and legislative seats of Kannaland Municipality are located in Ladismith, with satellite offices in Calitzdorp, Vanwyksdorp and Zoar. The Kannaland municipal area lies huddled between two mountain ranges, the Swartberge and Anysberg. An impressive mountain peak called Towerkop (2 198m) looms above Ladismith. Another impressive site is Elandsberg (2 128m). Halfway up Elandsberg is a famous landmark, sometimes referred to as Ladismith’s extra star in the galaxy: Stanley's Light (1 500m). The municipality has the smallest population in the Eden District, and also has the smallest economy in the region. Kannaland’s climate is ideal for the production of apricots, peaches, plums, nectarines and grapes. The well-known Parmalat and Ladismith dairy products come from the area. The quaint little haven of Calitzdorp is known as the port-wine capitol of South Africa by virtue of the top quality wines, produced mainly by Boplaas, De Krans, Axehill and Calitzdorp wine cellars. A wide variety of scenic routes criss-cross the area. Kannaland has its own individual building style, which makes it unique. For example, the so-called Ladismith Style is a simplified Georgian design and dates from the 1830s. Kannaland is an integral part of the Eden District, along with six other municipalities, namely Hessequa, Mossel Bay, George, Oudtshoorn, Knysna and Bitou. The Kannaland municipal area shares its borders with the Central Karoo District Municipality to the north and Cape Winelands District (Boland District Municipality) in the east.

Financial Audit Outcomes

The objective of an audit of financial statements is to express an opinion on whether the financial statements fairly represent the financial position of the auditee at financial year-end and the results of its operations for the financial year.

The Auditor-General can express one of the following audit opinions:

Clean audit outcome: The financial statements are free from material misstatements (in other words, a financially unqualified audit opinion) and there are no material findings on reporting on performance objectives or non-compliance with legislation.

Financially unqualified with findings: The financial statements contain no material misstatements. Unless the Auditor General expresses a clean audit outcome, findings have been raised on either reporting on predetermined objectives or non-compliance with legislation, or both these aspects.

Qualified audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements in specific amounts, or there is insufficient evidence for the Auditor General to conclude that specific amounts included in the financial statements are not materially misstated.

Adverse audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements that are not confined to specific amounts, or the misstatements represent a substantial portion of the financial statements.

Disclaimer of audit opinion: The auditee provided insufficient evidence in the form of documentation on which to base an audit opinion. The lack of sufficient evidence is not confined to specific amounts, or represents a substantial portion of the information contained in the financial statements.
