Essack, Mr F to ask the Minister of Public Enterprises

Whether he intends to place a temporary moratorium in his department on the recruitment regulation of the Public Service, including the broad-based black economic empowerment requirements, to enable Transnet to recruit skilled personnel, in light of the contribution that poor leadership, crime and a skills shortage had on the current operational crises at Transnet; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?


According to the information received from Transnet

The Cost Containment measures issued by National Treasury on August 31, 2023, to assist National Departments, Public Entities, and Provinces do not apply to Transnet. Nevertheless, Transnet is aware of fiscal challenges and is implementing prudent measures in this regard. There is no moratorium on the recruitment of critical skills in Transnet.

Remarks: Reply: Approved / Not Approved
