Reply:

In line with the 2007 Ministerial Handbook, all travel privileges for former Members of Parliament are administered and paid for by Parliament. I am therefore not aware of any provision in the 2007 Ministerial Handbook which caters for Departments to incur travel expenditure for former Ministers and their spouses, Deputy Ministers and their spouses, Ministers’ widows or widowers and Deputy Ministers’ widows or widowers.

Reply:

(1) The Honourable Member would be aware that the question he is asking is already in the public domain including the communication between my lawyers and the Judicial Commission of Inquiry c haired by Deputy Chief Justice Zondo. The Commission has also been on record to advise that the individuals who are somehow implicated by certain witnesses at the said inquiry would also be given an opportunity to testify and or to give their own account of events. The Honuorable Member is therefore advised to be patient until that particular opportunity surfaces.

(2) This particular question is also likely to form part of the evidence at the said inquiry.

B) See table in (a).

(i) Compensation paid to crash victims and their families:

(II) The primary goal of the courts in enforcing commuters’ common law claims for damages caused, once liability of the rail agency has been established, is to compensate the person who has suffered harm. The courts function under this delictual action is to restore the claimants’ position, as far as is possible, to the position that they would have occupied had the wrongful act not been committed.

Money is considered the most appropriate form of compensation, for both patrimonial loss (including medical costs, loss of income, cost of repairs, which fall under the heading of special damages) or non-patrimonial loss (including pain and suffering, disfigurement, loss of amenities and injury to personality, which fall under the heading of general damages).

The quantification of the exact compensation to be made to a claimant is determined by the production of sufficient evidence to make an accurate assessment. The courts will not make arbitrary awards if sufficient evidence is not led as to how the quantification of the claimants’ damages were exactly computed.

The process of compensation is determined by medico-legal evaluation of the Plaintiff. The purpose of medico-legal evaluation is to determine the following:

  1. The exact nature of the claimant’s injuries;
  2. The extent and severity of the claimant’s injuries;
  3. The sequelae and/or consequences that flow from the claimant’s injuries.

The medico-legal evaluations are carried out by medical professionals that specifically specialise in the field of personal injury litigation.

In personal injury matters against the rail agency litigants claim mainly the following heads of damages:

  1. Past Medical Expenses;
  2. Future medical expenses;
  3. Loss of Earnings and/or Earning Capacity;
  4. General damages.

A due diligence exercise on matters settled above R150,000-00 between 2006 and 2016 revealed that a sizeable amount of expenses are paid towards future medical expenses.

Once the medico-legal evaluation of the claimant has been completed, and the impact of the injuries on him has been assessed, the determination of the exact compensation due to him must be made.

In the case of past medical expenses specified medical vouchers delineating the exact nature of the medical treatment received, as well as showing that such medical treatment is accident related, must be provided.

Due to the once and for all rule in our common law of delict, all damages including potential future damages, sustained by the claimant must be calculated at the time the matter is settled. The future medical treatment required by the claimant as well as his loss of earnings and/or earning capacity must be calculated. This calculation is done by actuarial scientists who take into consideration factors such as medical inflation, earnings inflation, other applicable contingency deductions, life expectancy tables, etc.

General damages awards are awards made for the pain and suffering, loss of amenities, etc. that the claimant has suffered. These awards are made on the precedents set by awards handed down by the courts in previous cases. The courts make their award in the matter before them based on facts and circumstances that are considered analogous to the previous cases. All of the above is available for guidance and direction in the annually published Robert J Kock Quantum Year Book that is widely accepted as the general guide in claims settlement by the legal fraternity including the courts.

What is the lifespan of each of Eskom’s coal mines?

Reply:

According to the information received from Eskom

Eskom directly owns one mine, called Kilbarchan Colliery[1]. Indirectly, the utility owns some equity[2] in the cost-plus mines as a result of ownership of a portion of the mine assets through the cost-plus coal supply agreements (CSA).

Mining houses have the statutory right to mine the coal, and the statutory obligation to rehabilitate the mine. Eskom, through the CSA has the financial obligation to pay for these costs. The reserves dedicated to Eskom, can only be sold to Eskom. In a case where the mining house intends to transfer its rights and obligations, Eskom would have to provide consent. It should be noted that the CSAs do not include BEE ownership requirements as the last cost-plus agreement was signed prior to Eskom’s current BEE Policy.

Eskom does not disclose the lifespan of the cost-plus mines due to the following reasons:

  • Production at some of the cost-plus mines will end before the CSA end date.
  • As part of the life-extension projects, ongoing efforts to recapitalize some of the cost-plus mines will result in the stated life of the mine changing
  • Some reserves in the cost-plus mine complex are not dedicated to Eskom.
  1. Kilbarchan Colliery is recorded in Eskom’s balance sheet under the subsidiary Natal Navigation Colliery. It is recorded at R1, while the associated rehabilitation liability has been fully raised in Eskom’s financial statements.

  2. Eskom’s balance sheet does not include the cost-plus mines because the direct ownership rests with the mining houses and their balance sheets.

Whether the Government intends to continue with its non-statutory forces project; if so, (a) what criteria is being applied to determine the promotions to be effected in terms of the programme and (b) how will (i) these promotions be effected in a fair, meritorious and transparent manner given the rights and aspirations of other members of the SA Police Service and (ii) this programme assist in advancing the need to boost the professionalism and capacity of the organisation?

Reply:

(1) The continuation of the South African Police Service Non Statutory Forces (SAPS NSF) project is currently the subject of a review application which was brought against the South African Police Service by the Solidarity Union in the Gauteng North High Court. An interdict prohibits the South African Police Service to continue with the SAPS NSF project pending the outcome of Solidarity Union’s review application. Once the review application is finalised, a clear Judicial directive will be issued as a court order in this regard.

Whether, with reference to aircraft model Boeing 737 MAX 8 which crashed this month in Ethiopia and over the Java Sea in October 2018, (a) the SA Civil Aviation Authority is undertaking an audit of all aircraft of this model landing and departing any airports in the country, (b) what (i) is being done in this regard taking the recent two crashes into account and (ii) investigations are undertaken and (c) on what date will the results of such investigations be made available?

Reply:

South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA)

The South African Civil Aviation Authority (a) identified one operator, namely Comair that currently has one (1) Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft in its fleet and the second aircraft was yet to be delivered when the accident occurred. Only one foreign operator used and flew this aircraft model into South Africa, namely Ethiopian Airlines.

(b) (i) the SACAA engaged Comair following the Ethiopian airline crash and the operator voluntarily grounded its affected aircraft. Ethiopian airlines also voluntarily grounded its Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleet. Ordinarily, the Department of Transport issues a Foreign Operator Permit, on recommendation of the SACAA, to all foreign airlines intending to fly into South Africa and through this mechanism, the Authority would know the model of aircraft intended to be flown into the country and would implement and enforce any existing national or adopted airworthiness directives, etc. It is important to note that with regards to this matter, the State of design and manufacturing, i.e. the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), has subsequently issued a directive grounding all Boeing 737 MAX 8 & 9 aircraft globally until further notice.

(ii) currently no investigations are being conducted by RSA’s Aircraft and Incident Investigation Division because South Africa is not the State of Occurrence or Registry of the two accidents; RSA suffered no fatalities in the two accidents and RSA has not yet been requested to participate or assist in the investigation.
