Profile picture: Bozzoli, Prof B

Bozzoli, Prof B to ask the Minister of Higher Education and Training

(1)(a) Which public technical and vocational education and training colleges did not receive all the results of the November 2018 examinations from Umalusi during the bulk release of marks early in January 2019 and (b) what subjects were affected in each case; (2) (a) which results were still outstanding for each subject at each specified college as at 31 January 2019 and (b) what were the main reasons for the specified delays?

Reply:

1. All the centres that complied with the rules of examination as encapsulated in the policy on the conduct of examinations received their results on 31 December 2018. The tables attached as Annexure A provide the lists of subjects, and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges that did not receive all their results from Umalusi for the November 2018 examinations during the bulk release of marks on
31 December 2018.

2. (a) Annexure A also provides the lists of outstanding results for each subject at each specified college as at 31 January 2019.

 (b) The bulk of the outstanding results were released on 04 February 2019, following the first mop-up process by the Department and Umalusi. The main reason for this delay was that TVET colleges had failed to submit their Internal Continuous Assessments (ICASS) and some of the external marks timeously, i.e. Report 190-N1, National Certificate (Vocational) levels 2 and 3. The Department has written warning letters to college Principals for not submitting their ICASS and the external marks on time. During May to June 2019, Departmental officials will be visiting non-compliant colleges to audit the control measures and systems related to the management of internal assessments.

Mente-Nqweniso, Ms NV to ask the Minister of Finance

In light of the fact that the Nugent Commission of Inquiry Into Tax Administration and Governance by the SA Revenue Service (Sars) completed its work and issued a final report on 14 December 2018, (a) on what legal basis is the Commission continuing to be active at Sars after completion it completed its work and (b) on what date was the official last day of the Commission?

Reply:

a) The Commission has operated at all times in terms of a Presidential Proclamation (no 17 of 2018, published in Government Gazette 41652 of 24 May 2018) which set out the terms of reference for the Commission supplemented by regulations set out in Proclamation no 18 of 2018 (published in Government Gazette 41713 on 15 June 2019), as amended. There is no end-date for the Commission, but the terms of reference required a final report by 14 December 2018. Having met this deadline and issued its final report, the Commission is no longer active at this stage in terms of further hearings or reports, but Judge Nugent is concluding logistical arrangements like the cataloging and archiving of the Commission’s work or attending (where required, with other members of the Panel or evidence team) to requests like that of appearing before the Standing Committee on Finance on 13 February 2019. This logistical process commenced after delivery of the final report, and takes place at the premises that SARS made available to the Commission for its work.

b) There is no last day of the Commission, even though it is not actively functioning in terms of hearings or fact-finding. The President is expected to respond shortly to the recommendations of the Commission, and to provide clarity on a formal end-date for the Commission.

Alberts, Mr ADW to ask the Minister of Finance

Whether he would consider issuing appropriate regulations in terms of section 168(1) of the Municipal Finance Management Act, Act 56 of 2003, to ensure that payments by consumers for electricity from Eskom are placed in a separate ring-fenced account, in order to ensure that local authorities do not use it for other unauthorised expenditure?

Reply:

In terms of section 160(1) of the Constitution, a municipal council, makes decisions concerning the exercise of all the powers and the performance of all the functions of the municipality. The Municipal Finance Management Act 56 0f 2003 (MFMA) was issued to provide municipal councils with the financial management legal framework to enable decision making, which includes amongst others, the management of the municipality’s bank account. The MFMA is applicable to both municipalities and municipal entities. The MFMA enables municipalities to open more than one bank account provided that initial allocations to the municipalities flows through the municipality’s primary bank account. The legislation is however silent on the issue of “ring fencing”, however, nothing stops the municipal council from adopting a written policy which enables the ring fencing of funds for purpose of defraying liabilities due towards Eskom.

An Inter-Ministerial Task Team, made up of officials from the National Treasury and the Department of Cooperative Governance, has been established to look at strategies to address the failure by municipalities to pay, amongst others, Eskom and Water Boards.

Over and above the Inter-Ministerial Task Team, both the national and provincial treasuries are assisting financially struggling municipalities to prepare financial recovery plans for implementation. This will assist towards ensuring that the municipalities are financial sustainable. It is also important that issue of regulations are also looked at in the context of the Constitution referred to above, namely, that the executive authority at local government is vested within the municipal councils. The National Treasury can therefore regulate to provide a framework for decision making, but the ultimate and final decision vest with the municipal council.

What (a) amount has been designated for the purposes of (i) creating jobs and (ii) addressing unemployment in the Government’s national budget for the 2019-20 financial year and (b) are the details of each programme and/or department or entity that will benefit from these designations?

What (a) amount has been designated for the purposes of (i) creating jobs and (ii) addressing unemployment in the Government’s national budget for the 2019-20 financial year

Public employment programmes are key components of the government’s drive to alleviate poverty, inequality and unemployment in South Africa. These programmes have a large multiplier effect on vulnerable communities by combining the social, environmental and economic objectives of employment generation, income support, and asset creation. Government has allocated a total of R15.4 billion in the national budget for the 2019/20 financial year towards addressing unemployment. This is mainly comprised of two public employment programmes, namely, the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) (R14.6 billion) and the Jobs Fund now called the Employment Creation Facility Fund (R800 million).

The table below displays the breakdown of funds designated for the purposes of creating jobs in the 2019/20 financial year.

Additionally, government launched the Youth Employment Service (YES) initiative in March 2018. This is a business-led initiative supported by government. It offers a quality one-year work experience to participating youth, coupled with training (both technical and behavioural) as well as boosting the access to networks relevant for finding the next job. It is complementary with government incentives such as the Employment Tax Incentive as well as custom Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment recognition work to further bolster the programme’s impact. The YES directly contributes to employment creation but does not have a direct allocation from the government.

 

(b) What are the details of each programme and/or department or entity that will benefit from these designations?

Within the EPWP, there are two main modalities through which public employment is funded. The first is through direct budgetary allocations, where public employment is an explicit part of the purpose. The second modality is where focus on employment is not the primary or stated aim of a given programme, but where there is scope for labour-intensive work as part of the programme design. Part of the rationale for the incentive grants is to encourage public bodies to look at their programmes through this prism.

The incentive grants of the EPWP were initiated to expand job creation in specific focus areas, where labour-incentive delivery methods can be maximised. The grants are made up of the following components:

In provinces:

  • Infrastructure sector
  • Environment and culture sector

In municipalities:

  • Social sector
  • Environment and culture
  • Infrastructure

At national level:

  • Environment and culture

While each of the grants vary slightly in terms of design, they share the following purposes:

  • To strengthen job creation outcomes in specific focus areas
  • To maximise the use of labour intensive methods
  • To incentivise increased job creation efforts within public bodies by linking budget allocations from the grant to performance.
  • To use the grant to incentivise increased use if core budgets and other conditional grants for the purposes of job creation.

The EPWP is carried out by the following government departments: Labour, Public Works, National Treasury, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Tourism, Environmental Affairs, Cooperative Governance and Rural Development and Land Reform. The Department of Public Works leads and coordinates the expanded public works programme, as articulated in government’s medium term strategic framework and the national development plan whilst the Jobs Fund is run directly by the National Treasury.

Complementing government’s broader job creation programmes, the Jobs Fund is a specific grant financing instrument that uses public funds to catalyse innovation and investment in activities that contribute to job creation initiatives and longer term employment growth. In March 2018 the Jobs Fund issued its eighth call for proposals which it hopes to complete by the first quarter of the 2019/20 financial year.

(1)Whether, with reference to her reply to question 2633 on 17 October 2018, she is now in a position to indicate whether her department's higher education language policy, of which the concept was published in the Government Gazette of 23 February 2018, has already been finalised; if not, what (a) processes are still outstanding and (b) is the timeframe for finalisation; if so, by what date will it be published; (2) whether her department has received and considered the submissions of (a) the SA Academy for Science and Arts, (b) the Afrikaans Language Board and (c) Afriforum; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details in each case; (3) whether, if the specified policy has not yet been finalised, she will consider holding a symposium to fine-tune it; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (4) whether she has found that the policy is in compliance with her obligation under subsection 6(4) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, to manage and monitor the use of the official languages by means of legislative and other measures, since subsection 27(2) of the Higher Education Act, Act 101 of 1997, has the above as underlying basis; (5) whether she will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

1. The Department has not yet finalised the Language Policy for Higher Education, which was published in February 2018 for public comment.

(a) The Department has developed a further draft of the policy taking into consideration all the public comments received. The draft policy will be taken through the Socio-Economic Impact Assessment (SEIAS), which is a necessary process for all government policies, bills and regulations before approval for implementation. Parallel to the SEIAS process, a draft will be submitted to the Council on Higher Education (CHE) for advice, as required by the Higher Education Act (Act 101 of 1997, as amended). These two processes may invariably take about four months to complete (May-August 2019). Feedback from the abovementioned processes may lead to further amendments to the draft policy and will feed into the development of a final draft for publication and implementation.

(b) The policy will be finalised during 2019 once the above processes have been completed. It is envisaged that the policy will be implemented in 2020 when stakeholders, in particular the universities, have been taken through the revisions.

2. The Department received comments from a wide range of stakeholders. Submissions from all stakeholders have been considered taking into account the values of equity and the need to address the historical marginalisation of African languages as provided for in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa (1996).

(a) The Department received a submission from the SA Academy for Arts and Science. The Academy welcomed the revised Language Policy for Higher Education and proposed that specific universities be assigned to develop indigenous South African languages. It called for research to be undertaken to establish guiding principles and procedures for the development of new terminology for African languages. Moreover, the Academy proposed that a core cohort of lecturers proficient in African languages be developed to ensure that there are lecturers who can teach in these languages.

(b) No submission was received from the Afrikaans Language Board.

(c) Afriforum welcomed the review of the policy and called for a funding allocation to be made in support of multilingualism at universities. It underscored the fundamental right of learners/students to receive education in their mother tongue or the language of their choice. It supported the proposed partnerships with the Department of Basic Education in promoting the development of all indigenous languages in South Africa. It further welcomed the explicit reference to Afrikaans as an indigenous South African language in the policy.

3. The Department has already held a number of symposiums and seminars on this matter and is not planning to hold any others before the policy is finalised. However, the Department will continue to engage with universities and other relevant bodies regarding the implementation of the policy once it has been published.

4. The revision of the Language Policy for Higher Education is being done in compliance with the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, and the Higher Education Act (Act 101 of 1997, as amended).

5. The Minister will communicate to all stakeholders once the policy has been published in the government gazette for implementation.

Mulder, Dr CP to ask the Minister of Finance

(1)Whether, in light of the envisaged and widely publicised principle of land and property expropriation without compensation, he has found that there are any economic indications that the specified principle has to date had any negative economic effect on the country’s economy; if not, what are the full relevant particulars as to why no data show any negative impact; if so, (2) with reference to the sectors of the economy that have experienced a negative effect, (a) what steps the Government will take to manage such effect and (b) whether the Government is ready to handle class action claims on a wide front if the value of the assets has decreased because of the specified principle; (3) whether there are any indications that the principle is to any extent going to have a negative effect on future tax income; if not, why no data have envisaged any negative effect; if so, (a) why, (b) what steps the Government is going to take to repair the negative effect and (c) what are the further full relevant particulars?

Reply:

Question 1

1. There are no economic indicators that measure the direct impact of the “land expropriation without compensation” debate on South Africa’s economic performance or its specific impact on the agricultural sector. However, there are indicators that collectively provide insight into the overall performance of the agricultural sector. These include: (i) gross capital formation in agriculture; (ii) profitability (net farm income); (iii) real value added in agriculture, forestry and fishing; (iv) farm mortgages; and the (v) agribusiness confidence index. None of these indicators are able to isolate the direct impact of the “land expropriation without compensation” debate.

1. Real gross fixed capital formation – a proxy for investment – peaked in 2013 and has been on a downward trend since.

2. Net farm income – a measure of farm profitability – has been growing since 2010. The data for 2017 and 2018 are not yet available.

3. Real value added in agriculture, forestry and fishing declined by 4.8 per cent in the first half of 2018 compared with the same period in 2017. Maize production eased following record output in 2017 and the drought continued to weigh down production in the Western Cape. The short-term outlook for the sector has improved due to higher rainfall in the Western Cape. The combined export value of crops such as citrus, grapes and macadamia nuts increased by an annual average of 7.5 per cent over the period 2015 to 2017.

4. New mortgage loans and re-advances granted on farms peaked in 2006 and has remained relatively flat since 2011. At the end of 2017 new mortgages on farms were at similar levels to those observed in 2013.

5. The Agbiz / IDC Agribusiness Confidence index fell to 42 index points in the fourth quarter of 2018 – its lowest level in 9 years. This was largely due to significant declines in the net operating income, general agricultural conditions and turnover sub-indices – suggesting that business conditions are driving changes in sentiment. The capital investment confidence sub-index increased, supported by increases in capital sales (specifically tractor sales which were 9 per cent higher in the first 10 months of 2018 in relation to the same period last year).

It is difficult to isolate the impact of the “land expropriation without compensation” debate on the agricultural sector or the broader economy on the basis of these indicators. Furthermore, the information revealed by these indicators about the agriculture sector is mixed and there are a number of other factors that influence sentiment in agriculture, including the cost of doing business, weather expectations and market conditions.

The government has allocated resources to conduct a general agricultural census (currently underway), to collect information that will provide further data on the dynamics in the sector to better inform policy making and support a viable, inclusive and productive agricultural sector.

2. As indicated, it is not possible to empirically isolate the impact of the debate on “land expropriation without compensation” and therefore not possible, at this stage, to presume any negative impacts on the economy.

3. In light of the above, at this stage it is not possible to assess the potential impact on tax revenues.

What are the details of the policy certainty that the Government has strengthened as alluded to in the 2019 Budget Review?

Reply:

Progress has been made on key interventions to restore policy certainty as outlined in the 2019 Budget Review. These include:

1. Visa amendments and immigration reform: Gazetted amendments to the Immigration Act (2002) will waive the requirement of an unabridged birth certificate for children traveling from certain countries. Revised requirements for business visas clarify the documentation and accreditations required. An e-visa system will be launched with New Zealand as the pilot case. It will then be rolled out to other countries. The scarce skills list will be updated by March 2019.

2. Mining policy: Government issued a new Mining Charter. The Minister of Mineral Resources has signaled that controversial amendments to the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act (2002) are no longer in keeping with the policy intent. Separate legislation for the regulation of oil and gas is being developed and consultations with various stakeholders are under way.

3. Administered price review: The Department of Energy has invited the public to comment on the basic fuel price review until 31 March 2019. Stakeholder consultations are under way to identify ways to improve the efficiency and reduce the costs of ports and rail, making the country’s exports more competitive.

4. Procurement: The Public Procurement Bill is being finalised. It will consolidate various procurement laws into one national legislative framework. Provisions in the bill will encourage participation from black-, youth- and women-owned businesses in state procurement.

5. Telecommunications spectrum: The impasse on licensing has been resolved and licensing for high-demand spectrum will commence this year, with the process expected to be completed in 2020/21.

Prior to this, the 2018 Medium Term Budget Policy Statement reported progress on longstanding policy issues including:

1. Renewable energy: Eskom’s conclusion of 27 outstanding power-purchase agreements with independent power producers.

2. Energy planning: The reestablishment of a sustainable approach to energy planning by updating the Integrated Resource Plan for consideration by Parliament.

3. Land reform: Creating a panel to advise government on measures to effect fair and equitable land reform that will increase agricultural output and build self-sufficiency in food production.

Government is also acting decisively to mitigate the risks that Eskom poses to the economy and the public finances. The restructuring of the electricity sector and state support for Eskom’s balance sheet are central to a transparent and credible reform of the utility’s business model. This forms part of government’s broader agenda to restore good governance and financial stability at public institutions and state-owned companies.

Collectively, these efforts illustrate the progress made in providing policy certainty.

What has been the impact of manipulation of the Rand on revenue collection?

Reply:

We have no evidence of the manipulation of the Rand, and invite the Honourable Member to provide any evidence he may have of such manipulation. The currency market is a deep and liquid market, and it is difficult to determine any material or long-lasting impact of any one transaction on the level or value of the currency. I am therefore not able to respond to the question on the impact on revenue collection.

It is important to differentiate between the impact of any transaction on consumers and the impact on the value of the rand – current cases before the Competition Commission appear to be related more to the conduct of bank traders towards clients, rather than providing evidence of affecting the actual value of the rand, but let us await the outcome of that investigation before making any conclusions.

(1)Whether he has found that currency manipulation plays a role in illicit financial flows; if so, (2) whether he has found that banks who take part in currency manipulation should have their licences revoked; if not, why not?

Reply:

1. No I have not, since the National Treasury does not have any evidence on whether there is any form of currency manipulation and hence not able to assess the impact of any alleged manipulation on illicit financial flows. The National Treasury has also checked that the South African Reserve Bank likewise does not have such evidence, and would like to invite the Honourable Member to provide any such evidence if she has any.

2. As stated above, neither the National Treasury nor the South African Reserve Bank have any evidence that any bank has taken part in currency manipulation. We are aware that the Competition Commission is investigating a case of price fixing and market allocation in the trading of foreign currency pairs involving the Rand, which it has referred to the Competition Tribunal for prosecution. The currency market is a deep and liquid market, and it is difficult to determine any material or long-lasting impact of any one transaction on the level or value of the currency.

It is also important to differentiate between the impact of any transaction on consumers and the impact on the value of the rand – current cases before the Competition Commission appear to be related more to the conduct of bank traders towards clients, rather than providing evidence of affecting the actual value of the rand, but let us await the outcome of that investigation before making any conclusions.

(b) The entire panel is considered when a new instruction is received.

(c) The specific representative was first appointed in 2006 to represent PRASA in the Rail and Road Assessing / Mkhonza matter. In 2009 the representative was appointed to represent PRASA in the Mukoma Technologies matter.

(d) The total amount paid to Ranamane Mokalane to date, amounts to R10,116,561-32.

(e) See table below.

(f) See table below.

Name of Counterparty / Nature of matter

Brief synopsis of the issues in dispute

Status of the matter

Rail & Road Assessing (“RRA”)

Claim for alleged professional services rendered and not paid for in the amount of R3 466 000.00

Matter currently pending before South Gauteng High Court – this matter was placed on the roll and later removed after the plaintiff (RRA) failed to produce documents that it was required to produce at the hearing of the matter and that were required to properly assess RRA’s claim. Because of this failure, the matter was removed from the roll.

Mukoma Technologies (“MT”)

MT was engaged to repair, service, maintain and install CCTV cameras at various train stations on an as-and-when basis. MT has claimed for loss of earnings in the amount of R27 353 474.90

The court of first instance found against MT and granted leave to appeal to the full bench. The full bench denied the appeal. The application for leave to appeal is currently before the Supreme Court of Appeal.

Department of Public Works

PRASA is the plaintiff in this matter and it relates to services rendered to the Department of Public Works. PRASA is claiming R24mil

Matter currently pending before the South Gauteng High Court and the parties are engaging in settlement negotiations

Internal disciplinary hearing for employees alleged to have been engaged in jobs-for-sale

Ranamane Mokalane Attorneys are acting as initiators in these proceedings

Two of the matters have been finalised. Three other matters are nearing finalisation

2. One of the requirements for attorneys to be placed on the PRASA panel of lawyers is a fidelity fund certificate issued by the relevant office of the law society. In this case, the firm had a fidelity fund certificate at the time of appointment.

3. Refer to (2) above.

4. PRASA is still represented by Ranamane Mokalane Attorneys and the attorney working on the matters is Mr Grayne Sekhasimbe. On 12 March 2019, PRASA learned that a criminal charge of fraud has been laid against Mr Grayne Sekhasimbe. This is viewed in a serious light by PRASA. PRASA has started engagements with the necessary persons, including the investigating officer in the case to ensure that PRASA’s rights are not imperilled. PRASA will take a decision on the relationship with Ranamane Mokalane Attorneys and Mr Grayne Sekhasimbe by 20 March 2019.

RTMC

a) www.rtmc.co.za

The client server encryption was not implemented to this web service as this is purely an information website and no login services are present.  Any available documents to download have to be completed and forwarded per mail and not uploaded to the website itself, which could compromise confidential information.  The RTMC is currently upgrading the website to a latest content management platform and is in possession of a verified wildcard SSL certificate if the need arises to implement on this web service.

www.aarto.gov.za

The aarto.gov.za web service also corresponds to an informational website apart from the service querying fines and submitting elective options to the National Contravention Register (NCR).  The NCR functionality has been implemented using SSL within an iframe running within the web service to eliminate any confidential information being sent across the internet unencrypted. 

b) (i) & (ii) The RTMC manages the www.aarto.gov.za. As per following link https://knowledge.digicert.com/alerts/ALERT2562.html the SSL certificate expired due to a discrepancy between the governing bodies with regard to SSL certification of SSL Certificates. A delay was experienced in reissuing the new SSL Certificate free of charge as the Certificate Authority did not recognize the Corporation as the owner due to the fact that the certificate was procured by the erstwhile NaTIS Contractor. The details have since been updated.

c) The matter has been addressed already and certificates have been replaced.

d) The RTMC ordinarily tracks the expiry of the certificates and follows internal processes to ensure the service is not interrupted. In this instance the SSL certificate did not expire by ordinary effluxion of time but was no longer recognized. The Corporation has implemented a process to monitor the recognition status of all SSL certificates monthly to proactively react to any possible disruptions.

1. The 2018 NSC Business Studies, as with all other subjects, are remarked by all nine (9) Provincial Education Departments and not remarked nationally or in specific provinces. Only in the case of the selected subjects that were marked centrally by the DBE, was the remark also done centrally by the DBE.

2. The remark process is an appeal process that can be utilised by any candidate who wants to confirm his/her marks in the written examination. As such, it is the candidates and not the DBE or the Provincial Education Departments that request the remarking. Candidates are also allowed to request a re-check of their scripts and they could further request to view their scripts after the remark request has been processed.

3. Individual requests for remarking of Business Studies were made. There were a total of 6685 individual requests for the remark of Business Studies that were made.

Whether she has found that educators who are not members of teachers’ unions are disqualified from consideration to become markers of National Senior Certificate examinations; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

All educators that have the appropriate qualification and the relevant grade 12 teaching experience are eligible to apply to mark. Markers are then selected in terms of the criteria listed in the Personnel Administrative Measures (PAM).

Membership to a Teacher Union is not a criterion for appointment as a marker and no educator has ever been disqualified from the selection process due non-membership to a Teacher Union.

Whether, in light of the current water consumption rates, his department commissioned any study to determine whether the country will have enough water to sustain the population, economic growth and development by (a) 2050, (b) 2075 and (c) 2100; if not, why not; if so, what are the details of the findings of the study?

Reply:

a) The Department undertakes various planning studies over 25-year horizons, including the period to 2050 to ensure water security for the country. Such studies include (i) Water Availability Assessment Studies (WAAS), which generate base input information for planning, (ii) long term water resource reconciliation planning studies for large and small demand centres, and (iii) catchment-based studies. These planning studies culminate in strategies that address water needs for the country, which are then continuously monitored and updated every 3 to 5 years to ensure that they remain current and relevant. The outputs of the studies inform the National Water Resource Strategy (NWRS), the instrument by which the minister gives effect to the National Water Act, as well as the master plans that emanate from the NWRS. The studies are available on the DWS website, at http://www6.dwa.gov.za/iwrp/projects.aspx..

(b) and (c)

For the perspectives 2075 to 2100, the planning horizon is longer, and this is accompanied by a high degree of uncertainty. The studies conducted as mentioned in (a) above provide indicative directions of strategies for the country’s water security, which are continuously firmed up on a progressive basis to make them dynamic high level water resource plans that address uncertainty.

Are any microchips produced in the Republic; if so, (a) where are the microchips produced, (b) what is the value of microchips produced and (c) what number of people are employed in the production process?

Reply:

Microchips are produced mainly in Asia and the United States for the global market by companies such as Samsung, Intel and Taiwan Semiconductor manufacturing company. Due to economies of scale considerations, coupled with the quantum of investment required, the capability and the capacity to produce microchips anywhere else in the world is limited. There are therefore no microchips produced in the Republic.

Profile picture: Dreyer, Ms AM

Dreyer, Ms AM to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

Whether any investigations have been conducted into the continuing sewerage overflow at 25 Quinine Street, Glen Marais, Kempton Park; if not, (a) what steps will be taken to resolve the matter, (b) by what date will the specified matter be resolved, (c) what is the estimated cost, (d) what number of complaints has the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Council received regarding the matter and (e) why was the matter not resolved earlier given the number of complaints; if so, will he furnish Mrs A M Dreyer with a copy of the findings of the specified investigation?

Reply:

According to information received by the department from the City of Ekurhuleni, findings of an investigation were that the sewerage overflow is as results of storm water ingress, especially when it is raining. Furthermore, building owners in the area have connected rain water gutters and are channelling storm water into sewer lines; which worsened the problem.

a) To resolve the problem at 60 Quinine Street specifically, the CoE has already installed non-return valves to prevent the backflow into the house. The plan is to install valves at all the other properties affected by overflows and back flows in the aftermath of rain.

The City of Ekurhuleni (CoE) is planning to send building inspectors who will assist in investigating illegal connections to the municipal sewer system. Furthermore, the CoE, through its Water and Sanitation Division, will facilitate the disconnection of all illegal connection pipes and also install non-return valves at critical affected areas.

For further information relating to (b), (c), (d) and (e); the Honourable Member is requested to refer the questions to the Minister of Corporative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA) who will be in a better position to respond to specific details relating to the timelines to resolve the problem, costs and the number of complaints received by the Municipality with regard to this matter.

(1)(a) On what date was the Rand Water project, Palmiet RW-06, started and (b) what (i) still needs to be done before the project is completed, (ii) are the reasons that the project has stalled for over a year and (iii) is the expected completion date; (2) (a) what (i) is the expenditure to date and (ii) was the original costing of the project, (b) who were the contractors and consultants on the original project, (c) who is contracted to complete the project and (d) what penalties have been requested and paid?

Reply:

(1)(a) The Rand Water project Palmiet RW-06 started in March 2014.

(1)(b)(i) The overall project is currently 90% complete. The overall scope of work for this project is the construction of a 15km pipeline and the portion now to be completed is approximately 700m which includes pipelaying together with the associated concrete chambers. Thereafter tie-ins/cross connections of the entire 15km pipeline will be constructed and this is dependent on the shutdowns.

(1)(b)(ii) The project experienced challenges which were beyond Rand Water and the service provider’s control as follows:

  • All service providers experienced unsuitable ground conditions which included excessive rock and a high water table. These conditions were not predetermined and as such had to be decided upon within the project time lines which then resulted into delays.
  • During implementation, the pipeline route had to be changed to accommodate third party requirements (i.e. restrictions related to working within the vicinity of high voltage ESKOM powerlines and late approval of Water Use Licence (WULA) by the department). This added in the delays experienced by the project.

(1)(b)(iii) The expected completion date is April 2020.

(2)(a)(i) The expenditure to date is R597 396 518.29 excluding Vat.

(2)(a)(ii) The original costing of the project was R668 556 000.00 excluding Vat.

(2)(b) The contractors and consultants on the original project where the following:

Contractors:

  • M&D Construction Group (Portion A pipe laying – 8km)
  • Lubbe Construction (Pty) Ltd (Portion B pipe laying – 7km)
  • Esor / SBM Joint Venture (Portion B pipe jacking)
  • Mapitsi Civil Works (Portion A pipe jacking).

Consultants:

  • Jeffares and Green (Pty) Ltd.

(2)(c) The service providers listed in question (2)(b) above are all contracted to complete the project. Lubbe Construction (Pty) Ltd is currently completing their scope of work on portion B where they are left with 700m of pipelaying against the scope work of 7km.

(2)(d) Penalties have been applied and are being progressively deducted for all contractor delays.

Whether any computer parts are produced in the Republic; if so, (a) what computer parts are produced in the Republic, (b) where are the computer parts produced, (c) what is the value of computer parts produced and (d) what number of people are employed in the production process?

Reply:

Even though South Africa has capabilities in computer manufacturing, the Intellectual Property (IP) rests with the Original Equipment Manufacturers, all of which are foreign. Companies which are involved in computer manufacturing are mainly involved in assembly and contract manufacturing. There is a huge downstream opportunity in the value chain for some parts which could be sourced from local manufacturers for components which make up a computer. For example, the casings are made of plastic which could be sourced locally.

What budgeted amount, differentiated in capital and operatonal, has been allocated to (a) the National Archives and (b) to each provincial branch of the National Archives for each financial year in the 2019/22 Medium-Term Expenditure Framework; 3. In what ways will the budget allocations for the 2019/22 Medium-Term Expenditure Framework assist the archives in (a) employing more highly trained and qualified staff members, (b) organising documents, (c) digitizing documents, (d) upgrading infrastructure and (e) dealing with the backlog of stolen, lost and incorrectly stored documents?

Reply:

1. (a) The budget allocation for the National Archives for the 10 financial years is as follows:

(b) The National Archives and Records Service of South Africa does not have Provincial Branches. In terms of Schedule 5 Part A of the Constitution, Provincial Archives are a competency of each Provincial Government. Therefore, those nine Provincial Archives report exclusively to their respective legislatures and receive their allocations from their respective Provincial Treasuries through their Provincial Members of the Executive(MECs).

(b) The response to 1b applies as well.

3. (a) The department has appointed GTAC to undertake a workstudy exercise for the whole department including the National Archives. The National Archives is a Chief Directorate of the department. The workstudy is a review exercise intended to determine the organizational structure, human capacity, systems and procedures needed for the department to achieve its objectives. It aims to examine the overall functioning of the DAC including aspects such as the organisational structure, systems, operational processes, and employee morale for the purposes of improving service delivery. Also to ensure that the Department stays within the allocated compensation budget ceiling. It is after the results of this workstudy exercise whereby the issue of employing highly skilled and qualified staff will be looked at. It is my commitment to resource the National Archives with skilled staff in order to take the National Archives into the stage of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

(b) In order to make records available for access by the citizens of South Africa it is necessary to arrange and describe the records after they have been transferred to the National Archives Repository. This means that they are sorted in terms of a file system used by the creating office, after which they are listed and a finding aid compiled. This finding aid is then available for researchers to use to identify the records that they are interested in. A new system called AtoM (Access to Memory) has been implemented by the NARSSA to assist the Arrangement and Description Archivists to ensure that the work that they do is available quicker to researchers, not only in the NARSSA Reading Room, but also online.

(c) The NARSSA acknowledges digitisation as strategy for preservation and access. During the period preceeding your question, the NARSSA developed its own Digitisation Strategy which was approved in 2013. The purpose of this strategy was to guide the process of digitising archival material. The first digitisation project implemented by the NARSSA was the Rivonia Trial Records (commonly known as Percy Yutar Papers). The total cost of the project was R161 040.00 The Nelson Mandela Foundation contributed R100 000, while the NARSSA paid R61 040. The project digitised 12 000 pages of records.

The National Automated Archival Information Retrival System (NAAIRS) was revamped from 2014 to 2017 in AtoM. 'AtoM' is an acronym for 'Access to Memory'. AtoM is a web-based archival description software that is based on International Council on Archives (ICA) standards viz. Encoded Archival Description, to make it easy for archival institutions to put their archival holdings online. The total amount for this upgrade was R10, 088, 232.37. Currently the public have access to the digitised Rivonia Trial Dictabelts on the NARSSA Website which is a result of the Revamping of the NAAIRS Project.

(d) The NARSSA has been allocated R160 M for the 2019-22 Medium Term Expenditure Framework for the construction of the new archival building. The allocation received by NARSSA will be utilised for the construction of a new modern and technologically advanced archival building, on the same and adjacent site of the existing Hamilton Street building; and the refurbishment of the existing facilities. Consideration will be given to combining the needs of an Offices of Record, National Film, Video and Sound Archives, Presidential Archives and a Records Centre together with those of the National Archives on the same site that are physically linked together in addition to off-site storage facilities for specialised collections.

(e) The NARSSA is not aware of any stolen or lost records. NARSSA has the following measures in place to ensure the safekeepeing of records.

  • No researchers are allowed in the strongrooms where records are kept
  • No visitors to the building are allowed in the offices of officials
  • No bags are allowed in the Reading Room
  • All strongrooms are locked and only designated officals can access the strongrooms, they are required to sign a register whenever access is needed.
  • Researchers only have access to records in the reading room where they are under constant supervision by staff
  • The Reading Room and other areas in the building are also monitored by CCTV cameras
  • Client Offices (Government Departments) are required to complete a removal permit for records that they take from NARSSA. Client offices can only remove records that they have created themselves.

Over the many years that the NARSSA has operated, some records were misplaced. This is due to various factors including misplacement in incorrect boxes after use by researchers, and audits that are not conducted regularly due to staff shortages. The holdings of the National Archives Repository stretch over 66 000 linear kilometres, it is almost impossible to locate misplaced records, as was shown when six (later 5) interns were appointed to try and locate misplaced records identified by the Public Protector after they received a complaint from a researcher. The interns worked for one year and although they were able to locate a number of misplaced files, one is still outstanding. They were however able to find a number of misplaced files that were not previously known, including records related to Land Restitution e.g. file NA/15/6 parts 1 and 3 created by the magistrate Mapulaneng (Bosbkorand). The contract period for the interns lapsed on 4 March 2019, the work has slowed down considerably due to a lack of capacity.

To rectify the situation the NARSSA will have to invest in an Electronic Archival Tracking System, such as RFID, whereby each file will have to be coded and the system will automatically track the file in the NARSSA (A similar system was introduced in the UNISA Library a number of years ago). This system is also connected to the security system of the building and would alert officials if a file is removed from the building without permission.

It is without a doubt that the NARSSA is keeping its records safe, regardless of all the challenges experienced.

Reply:

The Honourable Member will appreciate the fact that there is so much to be done to better the lives of our people. When honourable Members ask exactly the same question that was asked by another honourable Member from the same Caucus and it was responded to, I find it unacceptable.

Exactly the same question was asked by Honourable Walters of the Democratic Alliance in 2017. It was question number 347 and I responded to that question, nothing has changed.
