Hlengwa, Mr M to ask the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation

Since assuming office, (a) what number of official international trips has (i) she and (ii) her two Deputy Ministers undertaken with officials or staff of her office, (b) to which country or jurisdiction, (c) for what purpose and (d) what was the total cost of (i) air travel, (ii) accommodation and (iii) all other specified expenses of each trip?

Reply:

The details of international trips undertaken by my two Deputy Ministers and I are attached as Annexure A.

However, the information requested is currently being audited and as such the total cost of air travel, accommodation and other costs will be provided once the audit process is completed. The Honourable Member would appreciate that being an International Relations and Cooperation Department, international travel is a part of its core mandate and the verification process takes time. This is further compounded by the fact that all accommodation and land transport are arranged by various embassies across the world.

Alberts, Mr ADW to ask the Minister of Transport

With regard to the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences Act (AARTO), Act 46 of 1998, on what policy basis and other considerations it has been decided that the AARTO testing phases in Johannesburg and Tshwane were successful; (2) whether he has found that there is a reduction in the number of motor vehicle accidents; if not, (a) why does he find that AARTO has not made a difference and (b) why the implementation of AARTO nationwide will deliver a different outcome; (3) whether the Road Traffic Infringement Agency (RTIA) has the operational efficiency to effectively deal with the adjudication of offences; if not, why will the RTIA function more effectively in the adjudication of offences, especially as the volume of offences will increase drastically; (4) whether he has found that the collection of fines was better than before AARTO was established; if not, why will the implementation of AARTO nationwide definitely ensure that the collection of fines will improve with regard to the previous system and the creation of AARTO courts across the country that currently do not exist; (5) whether he has clear evidence that the implementation of AARTO nationwide will make the roads safer; if not, why are they continuing to implement the system; if so, whether he and his department accept personal responsibility if the roads become more unsafe and more people are killed or injured by reckless driving?

Reply:

(1) The AARTO Pilot Report, identified the weaknesses in the implementation and the related interventions that should developed. With the identified loopholes corrected, the implementation has subsequently proven to be successful. The last of the remaining weaknesses relate to the legislative framework and the amendments to the AARTO Act have recently been approved by the Portfolio Committee as well as the National Council of Provinces;

(2) Yes, (a) there was 19% reduction in fatalities in Gauteng, where AARTO is operational, recorded for the 2018 December/2019 January festive season. Enforcement Orders issued acted as a catalyst to ensure that lleged infringers comply with the infringement notices issued and in retun allowed for a compliant road user and a safer road traffic environment.

(b) Intenternational Research indicates that the Points Demerit System substantially reduce the accident rates upon implimentation thereof. It is envisaged that the same will apply with the national implimentation of AARTO, which will include the enforcement of the demerit points system.

(3) Audited performance reports over the last three years shows that the Agency has easily cope with the volumes of representation applications received within an average of 5 days, which is significantly less than the prescribed 21 day period. The Agency adjudicated 87,848 representations during the 2015/16, 96,310 during the 2016/17and 133,790 during the 2017/18 periods respectively.

Furthermore, only a small percentage of infringement notices results in representation applications, since there are currently four other elective options that an infringer can choose from.

(4) In the first instance, the AARTO system is not just based on the collection of traffic penalties. AARTO seeks to decriminalise road traffic violation. It provides for five different options from which an infringer must elect and exercise their right, such as challenging it by submitting a representation, electing to go to court, nominating the driver, making a once-off payment or arranging to pay in installments. Generally, revenue increase has been experienced, given the easier process of payments at additional payment platforms throughout the country, thereby introducing greater convenience for infringers to effect payments where applicable. throughout the country. It would be incorrect to move from a point that AARTO is only about collection of fines.

(5) The implementation of AARTO nationwde will include the Points Demerit System (PDS) and international studies have shown that the PDS has a direct bearing on the reduction of road fatalities. The evidence in this regard is based on the following:

  • Norway - reduction of 10.49% of road crashes when demerit points was introduced during 2009/2010;
  • Denmark - reduction of 16.2% of road crashes when demerit points was introduced during 2009/2010
  • Germany - reduction of 7.24% of road crashes when demerit points was introduced during 2009/2010;
  • A study by Stichting Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek Verkeersveiligheid (SWOV) Institute, Leidshendam, Nederlands dated 2012 on Demerit Point Systems founded that the general effect on the reduction of injury accidents after the introduction of a PDS will be between 15-20% for the first one and a half year after introduction.

The Minister, the Department and all its roads Agencies, firmly believe that road safety is everyone’s responsibility. Thus the strategic position is to show leadership by engaging with all stakeholders and members of the public to ensure full compliance to all road traffic laws, which will ensure the achievement of the goal of increased road safety. We all accept that any road fatality or serious injury is one too many to accept and thus everyone must ensure that we contribute to the success of a safer road traffic environment.

With reference to the reply of the Minister of Environmental Affairs to question 3618 on 14 December 2018, (a) what plans are in place to ban microbeads in the country and (b) by what date will the ban come into effect?

Reply:

The regulations related to the labelling, advertising and cosmetics made in terms of the Foodstuffs, Cosmetics and Disinfectants Act, 1972 (Act 54 of 9172) were published for comment. SAHPRA has reviewed the comments submitted by various stakeholders, including those made by the Department of Environmental Affairs, on the harms and banning of microbeads in cosmetics. The updated evidence and motivations provided on microbeads in rinse-off cosmetics and the stance of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the EU were reviewed and taken into account. The Authority has made a decision to ban the use of microbeads in rinse-off cosmetics, in line with global regulatory jurisdictions. The banning of microbeads in rinse-off cosmetics will follow a phased out approach, taking effect 18-24 months from the date of publication of the regulations.

(1)(a) Why was an amount of R 5,7 billion moved to the SA National Roads Agency Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project in his department’s Medium-term Budget Policy Statement in October 2018, (b) what are the details of the purpose(s) for which the funds will be utilized and (c) why were the funds transferred from the non-toll network’s allocation; (2) whether he has found that the specified transfer of funds was based on a rational decision in the interest of all citizens considering the need for repairs on South Africa’s non-toll road network; if so, what are the relevant details? NW193E

Reply:

1. (a) Due to the SANRAL Toll portfolio experiencing financial difficulty and in order to ensure that SANRAL does not default on its payments to investors, as well as to continue with the maintenance of the toll network across the country, funds were transferred from the non-toll network to the Toll network.

(b) Falls away – refer to (a) above.

(c) Because no additional funding could be sourced from the National Treasury, this was part of a reprioritisation exercise until a permanent solution is generated by Government to deal with the e-Toll challenge.

2. Even though the non-payment by Gauteng road users has a severe impact on SANRAL’s sustainability, an event of default would have even more dire consequences for the country. This would result in SANRAL ‘s full debt of R47bn becoming due and payable to investors. It is however a fact that any money that is diverted from the non-toll network to support GFIP negatively affects road maintenance and improvements elsewhere in the country. This transfer was a necessary intervention while a permanent solution is sought by Government for the e-Toll challenge.

Reply:

This response is according to information received from the SOC:

(1)(a) The companies in the Department of Public Enterprises portfolio have requested the following financial assistance for consideration during the 2018 Adjustments Budget and 2019 Budgeting process:

 

Alexkor

Denel

Eskom

Safcol

SAX

SAA

Transnet

Requested financial assistance

R100 million

R2.8 billion

R100 billion

R0

R1.74 billion

R15.5 billion

R0

The SOCs, with the support of government, are in the process of negotiating the rollover and refinancing of existing debt as well as seeking to secure additional funding to meet the companies’ liquidity requirements. The exact amount, or even whether assistance will be forthcoming from government will be determined by the National Treasury, after consultation with the department of Public Enterprises, and subject to approval of cabinet.

(b) The National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) recently approved the Adjustments Appropriation Bill and the Special Appropriation Bill, which included amongst others an appropriation of R1.249 billion for South African Express SOC Limited (SA Express) and R5 billion appropriation for South African Airways SOC Limited (SAA) respectively.

As the 2019/20 budgeting process has still to be concluded, there is no clear indication of further funding to be provided to the SOCs.

(c) In line with conditions set by the Minister of Finance, these amounts allocated to SAA and SA Express will be used exclusively to settle the airlines’ guaranteed debt.

 (2)   Based on the information received from Transnet, the settlement discussions between the legal representatives of the pensioners and Transnet are continuing and it is hoped that these will be concluded early in 2019. At this stage, due to the confidential nature of the discussions, it would not be in the best interests of any of the parties to disclose the details, until a decision is taken on the proposed offers and counter offers.             

(3)    No further statement is required at this point

(a) For all the tenders invited in 2018, there we no tender briefing for them.

 

ESKOM SOC

This response is according to information received from Eskom

(a)(ii) and (b)

Eskom complies with its Procurement and Supply Chain Procedure (32-1034) which prescribes the process of managing tenders including records required.  Although Eskom maintains records of tenders issued, our reports are not configured to provide records of which tenders had briefing as well as which briefings were compulsory.

Eskom has records of tenders issued, however to check each and every record of the approximately 1974 tenders advertised for the period 01 January 2018 to 31 December 2018 is an extensive manual exercise which will take several weeks to conclude and verify.

Madisha, Mr WM to ask the Minister of Police

Whether he has found that the widely reported slaughter of an animal on Clifton beach was a lawful act; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, on what lega! provisions are his findings based; (2) on what grounds was the action of the SA Police Service to intervene and allow the slaughter to take place justified when the City of Cape Town officials tried to stop the slaughter from taking place?

Reply:

1. It was determined that the slaughter of an animal on the Clifton Beach, was not unlawful. Section 7 of the Meat Safety Act, 2000 (Act No 40 of 2000), prohibits the slaughter of animals at places, other than abattoirs. However, Section 7(2) of the Act, provides for exemptions and stipulates that the prohibition does not apply to the slaughter of animals for cultural or religious purposes.

Regulation 129, of the Red Meat Regulations of 2004, which were issued in terms of the Meat Safety Act, regulate the slaughtering of animals for religious or cultural purposes. This Regulation requires that a person who slaughters animals for religious or cultural purposes, must obtain prior written permission from the local authority of the area, where such slaughtering will take place.

The Regulation does not contain an offences/or penalty clause and the conduct is, therefore, not criminalised and is merely a prohibition. No other Bylaw and/or Act could be found that criminalises the slaughtering of animals.

2. No employee of the City of Cape Town could advise the senior South African Police Service (SAPS) officers, who were at the scene, of any offence that would be committed if the animal was slaughtered on the beach.

The Mayor of the City of Cape Town, Mr D Plato, informed the senior SAPS officers that a Bylaw would be transgressed. However, to date, no such Bylaw could be provided to the SAPS.

At no stage, did any of the senior officers present, prevent any employee or representative of the City of Cape Town, to act against those that intended to slaughter the sheep. Major General Vearey did, however, advise the Mayor that it would not be operationally appropriate to act. This was based on the fact that there was confusion about the legislation, the risk associated with police action at the time, taking into account, the size and mood of the crowd that had gathered for the event. The risk of creating more violence, outweighed the enforcement of a Bylaw that eventually proved not to exist.

NW318E

Reply:

According to the information received from Eskom

(1)(a)(i)(aa)(bb)(ii)

Annexure A provides group headcount per financial year including fixed-term contractors, the number and percentage of employees per occupational category by race and gender as well as the aggregated percentage of Africans, Coloureds and Indians.

Eskom Company workforce profile is for FY2005/6 to 2017/18 and subsidiary, Eskom Rotek Industries (ERI) is from FY2013/14 to 2017/18. 

Eskom is not in a position to provide data prior to the date mentioned (from 1 January 1994) due to the following reasons:

(i) Eskom submitted the first compliance Employment Equity report for FY2005/6 to the Department of Labour (DoL);

(ii) SAP was only configured in line with the DoL reporting requirements in 2006;

(iii) Eskom Rotek Industries only started using SAP in 2013.

Further, it is to be noted the variances in headcount reported in Eskom Integrated Reports vs headcount reported in Annexure A is due to definition of temporary employees in line with Section 57 of the Employment Act, Act 55 of 1998. 

According to Section 57 of the Act an employee whose services has been procured for a temporary employment service, is deemed to be the employee of the client when the employee’s employment is for three months or longer. 

To that effect Eskom started to align with the guidelines provided by Section 57 of the Employment Equity Act, Act 55 of 1998 in the FY2009/10.

(2)(a)

Eskom does not use the term ‘key strategic positions’ but instead uses the term core, critical and scarce skills.

Annexure B depicts core, critical, and scarce skills for the period 2014/2015 to 2018/2019 since these were tagged from 2014 onwards on the SAP system.  The numbers provided exclude Eskom Rotek Industries.

(2)(b) 

Annexure B depicts core, critical and scarce skills by race groups for the period 2014/2015 to 2018/2019, since these were tagged from 2014 onwards on the SAP system.  The numbers provided exclude Eskom Rotek Industries.

(2)(c)

As with all recruitment at Eskom, the appointment of individuals in possession of these skills is informed by Eskom’s Employment Equity plan, in compliance to Section 19 and 20 of the Act.

(3)

Yes, Eskom workforce profile has transformed substantially.  Between financial years 2005/6 and 2017/8 there is a 22% change on racial equity and 14% gender equity change, across senior management and professionals.  The table below provides details.

Eskom views transformation as a strategic imperative and within this context, strives to ensure that its workforce demographics reflects the Economically Active Population (EAP) profile of South Africa. 

(3)(a)

At no stage did Eskom compromise its mandate to focus on the transformation agenda. 

Eskom is cognisant of its mandate which is to provide electricity in an efficient and sustainable manner through its generation, transmission, distribution and retail value chain.  Eskom is also mindful of its developmental role namely to promote transformation and economic development. 

Eskom remains a critical and strategic contributor to government’s goal of ensuring security of electricity supply to the country, thereby enabling economic growth and prosperity.  Eskom will always strive to ensure a balance between its core business versus the transformation imperatives of the country.

(3)(b)

Eskom continually seeks to deliver transformation through recruitment and retention using targeted employee value proposition.  Essential to this is attracting and retaining critical skills. 

Eskom uses internal talent boards at managerial and leadership levels to aid with succession planning for critical workforce segments and actively manage talent pools and careers to achieve transformation objectives.

However, there is no doubt that during the “State Capture” period, skilled professionals with integrity – both black and white, were sidelined, victimised or left Eskom. A climate of fear and intimidation was created to ensure that corrupt practices were not challenged or exposed.

This is the damage that is now being remedied. Even these efforts are being subjected to a “fightback” by a coalition of ex-employees and their fellow travelers in various organisations.

In the interest of future generations, South Africans from all walks of life must support the endeavours of the Eskom board and management to restore Eskom, in accordance with the proposed restructuring and new business model, to sustainability.

Whether his department investigated the legal steps that would be necessary to make its intention possible to set a price ceiling for unleaded fuel; if not, why not; if so, what are the findings?

Reply:

In as far as legal steps are concerned, no investigation was required.

The Department is guided by empowering legislation, and in this case the Petroleum Products Act, 1977 (Act No. 120 of 1977) (as amended) is the appropriate piece of legislation.

Section 2(1)(c) of the Petroleum Products Act, 1977 provides that “The Minister may by regulation or by notice in writing served on any person, whether personally or by post, and any person authorized thereto by the Minister may by such notice so served, prescribe the price, or a maximum or minimum price, or a maximum and minimum price, at which any petroleum product may be sold or bought by any person, and conditions under which the selling or buying of petroleum products other than in accordance with the prescribed, maximum or minimum price may take place”.

This section is the empowering provision that would permit the Minister to set a price ceiling for unleaded fuel after a thorough analysis of the socio-economic impact of doing so has been undertaken.

Reply:

No, in terms of Section 4(1) of the Regulation of Interception of Communications and Communication-Related Information Act, 2002 (Act No. 70 of 2002), (hereinafter referred to as the Act) any person, other than a law enforcement officer, may intercept any communication if he or she is party to the communication, unless such communication is intercepted by such person for purposes of committing an offence. In terms of Section 4(2) of the Act, any law enforcement officer may intercept any communication if he or she is:

  • a party to the communication; and
  • satisfied that there are reasonable grounds to believe that the interception of a communication of another party to the communication is necessary, on grounds referred to in Section 16(5)(a) (relating to serious offences), unless such communication is intercepted by such law enforcement officer, for the purposes of committing an offence.

In terms of Section 1 of the Act, “intercept” is defined to mean the aural or other acquisition of the contents of any communication, through the use of any means, including; an interception device, so as to make some or all of the contents of a communication available to a person other than the sender or recipient or intended recipient of that communication and includes, the:

  • monitoring of any such communication by means of a monitoring device;
  • viewing, examination or inspection of the contents of any indirect communication; and
  • diversion of any indirect communication from its intended destination to any other destination and “interception” has a corresponding meaning.

A “communication” is defined in Section 1 of the Act, to include both a direct communication and an indirect communication.

A “direct communication” is defined to mean an:

  • oral communication, other than an indirect communication, between two or more persons, which occurs in the immediate presence of all the persons participating in that communication; or
  • utterance by a person who is participating in an indirect communication, if the utterance is audible to another person who, at the time that the indirect communication occurs, is in the immediate presence of the person participating in the indirect communication.

An “indirect communication” is defined as the transfer of information, including; a message or any part of a message, whether it is:

(a) in the form of:

  1. speech, music or other sounds;
  2. data;
  3. text;
  4. visual images, whether animated or not;
  5. signals; or
  6. radio frequency spectrum; or

(b) in any other form or in any combination of forms, that is transmitted in whole or in part, by means of a postal service or an electronic communication system1. (Own underlining).

In light of the above, the Act prohibits the interception of audio communications (in other words the interception of what is spoken). Visual images, such as those recorded by closed circuit television, are not transmitted by means of the postal

' The definition of indirect communication in the Act was amended by the Electronic Communications Act No. 36 of 2005”. The definition of telecommunication system was replaced by “electronic communication system”. (Government Gazette No. 28743 of 18 April 2006).

services or an electronic communications system. The actions, gestures or activities of a person, without sound, fall outside the definition of a “direct communication”.

The Act aims to protect the privacy of communications, in general. It is submitted that the prohibition of the Act, does not apply in circumstances, where a person makes an oral communication in circumstances, where there is no reasonable expectation of privacy (for instance in a police station).

In line with the Act, closed circuit television at police stations does not record audio communications but only activities that take place. Body-worn cameras, which have the ability to record activities and audio communications may, however, contravene Section 4(1)(a) of the Act. (Own underlining).

(1)Whether, given the breakdown of democratic processes, the ongoing human rights violations and the humanitarian aid blockade currently underway in Venezuela, the Government will continue its support for the disputed President of Venezuela, Mr Nicholas Maduro; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) what is the position of the Government regarding the ongoing human rights violations and the humanitarian aid blockade underway in Venezuela?

Reply:

(1) South Africa fully subscribes to the principles of international law embodied in the Charter of the United Nations, that is, equal rights and self-determination of peoples, sovereign equality and independence of all States, non-interference in the domestic affairs of States, prohibition of the threat or use of force and universal respect for, and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms for all.

South Africa remains concerned at the attempt by outsiders to evade Venezuela’s constitutional legal mechanisms and electoral processes. South Africa believes that any political grievances or disputes inside Venezuela should be resolved in a peaceful manner through the proper mechanisms and processes provided for in the constitution of Venezuela and its electoral laws, without external influence. This is regarded by South Africa as a standard and indeed best practice in all democracies that subscribe to the Rule of Law. South Africa also calls on all parties in Venezuela to participate in a national dialogue process to ensure unity and reconciliation, and in furtherance of a political solution to the situation.

South Africa is firmly against any attempts at undue or unconstitutional change of government in Venezuela. The UN Security Council (UNSC) should never be an instrument that validates unconstitutional changes of any Government. Instead, the UNSC should promote avenues that create an environment conducive to dialogue and cooperation that would ease the challenges and hardships faced by the people of Venezuela.

(2) South Africa echoes the statements made by the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres in Davos on 24 January 2019, where he urged for a de-escalation of tensions to prevent violence. South Africa further supports the Secretary-General’s call for the “urgent need for all relevant actors to commit to inclusive and credible political dialogue to address the protracted crisis in the country, with full respect for the rule of law and human rights”. South Africa is also concerned about the humanitarian situation in Venezuela and the resultant migration that has taken place and the influx of Venezuelan asylum seekers to neighbouring countries. South Africa calls on the international community, as well as the relevant UN bodies to work with the Venezuelan government and its neighbours to assist those in need.

South Africa fully subscribes to the Viena Convention’s commitments on the promotion and protection of human rights as adopted by the World Conference on Human Rights in Vienna on 25 June 1993 and all international laws governing humanitarian action which needs to be independent of political, military or other objectives

(a) What are the details of (i) the number of properties that are being rented by the SA Police Service in each province and (ii) each contract that was awarded through (aa) competitive bidding process and (bb) deviation and (b) what was the reason for deviation; (2) what is the (a) agreed-upon rental amount, (b) duration of rental contract, (c) name of successful bidding company or entity, (d) name of each unsuccessful bidder for that rental contract and (e) name of the accounting officer who gave final sign-off for each specified rental property?

Reply:

(1)(a)(i)(ii)(aa)(bb)&(b)

The process associated with the procurement of leased accommoddtion, is initiated by the South African Police Service (SAPS) but is managed by the National Department of Public Works (NDPW). The SAPS is required to submit all the relevant documents, pertaining to the procurement of leased accommodation, to the NDPW.

The NDPW, therefore, manages the procurement process and concludes the lease agreements. It needs to be mentioned that only the NDPW can enter into a lease agreement, on behalf of user departments, in line with the mandated functions of the aforementioned departments.

The table below reflects the total number of leases, concluded by the NDPW, on behalf of the SAPS.

(2)(a)(b)

Given the fact that the NDPW enters into lease contracts on behalf of the SAPS, the rental amounts and periods are agreed upon, by the NDPW and the lessor. The SAPS only confirms the funding of the lease, for the duration of the lease contract.

(2)(c)(d)

The NDPW undertakes the procurement process for acquiring new leases, on behalf of the SAPS. The SAPS is not directly involved in the procurement process and, therefore, does not have access to the requested information.

(2)(e)

The NDPW manages the acquisition process and should, therefore, be requested to provide the details of the officials who have approved leases, relevant to the SAPS.

Whether she has complied with the Constitutional Court ruling in which the court had found her liable for not applying an executive supervising role particularly after the SA Social Security Agency failed to comply with previous orders and instructed her to pay a portion of the legal fees; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

As the member is aware, the legal matter referred to involved a number of legal teams representing different parties. It is through the lawyers that represented me as the then Minister of Social Development that the process will be finalised. I regularly communicate with the legal team that represents me. This far there is no correspondence on the legal fees that has been received from the other legal teams that represented the different parties.

(1)Whether he has been informed that he has been implicated in testimony made under oath and in written documents by Mr Agrizzi at the Judicial Commission of Inquiry to Inquire into Allegations of State Capture, Corruption and Fraud in the Public Sector including Organs of State, chaired by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo; if so, were the allegations made by Mr Agrizzi in respect of him true; (2) whether he declared any financial or material gifts from Bosasa as required by the Executive Members’ Ethics Act, Act 82 of 1998; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. No, I was neither informed, nor did I ever see or hear anywhere where Agrizzi implicates me in any testimony made under oath. However I saw somewhere on social media a list said to have been released by Agrizzi, whereby it says I contacted Bosasa and made enquiries about some systems or services they offer.

The statement that I contacted Bosasa is in fact false. I never contacted Bosasa. What happened was that the former Mayor of Mogale City, Mr Mpho Nawa, contacted me in 2015 and informed me that he had been invited by a company in Mogale City where he is Mayor, to go and view Hospital Information Management systems. He said he told them that he understood nothing about health information systems and at any rate had no jurisdiction over hospitals.

The Mayor then invited me to visit that company. On arrival I discovered that the company was in fact Bosasa. I had thought that Bosasa was only a catering company. But I found out there when they then showed me the systems, that they do many other things, other than catering. However regardless of their systems I was definitely not interested in getting the Department of Health involved with them in any other way because I read lots of stories about their irregularities with the catering contract in Correctional Services.

2. No, I declared nothing because I received nothing in the form of a gift or financial benefit or any other way from Bosasa.

END.
