As the probe into financial mismanagement and corruption at the National Develoment Agency (NDA) comes to an end, a new board of directors has been appointed to inject new direction and energy into the Agency, reports the Mail and Guardian.

The new board intends to bring stability to the NDA and is focussing on establishing strong management systems.

The NDA has been plagued by allegations of financial mismanagement and is currently the subject of a forensic audit ordered by the Minister for Social Development, Zola Skweyiya. Despite all the difficulties, however, the NDA interim administrator, Vukani Mthintso, points out that the NDA has approved 27 new projects since November 2003.
