NGOs are demanding that grants made by the National Lotteries Board (NLB) during the past three years be subjected to a forensic audit and that board members be subjected to a lifestyle audit.
The demands are contained in a memorandum, which is due to be handed over when representatives of NGOs are expected to march on the NLB offices on 27 January 2012.
In the memorandum the NGOs ask that grants in excess of R5 million be fully disclosed to the public, and that applications for grants can be submitted all year round, instead of once a year.
Meanwhile, lottery spokesperson, Sershan Naidoo confirmed that they have received notification of the planned march.
