Cebekhulu, Inkosi RN to ask the Minister of Communications and Digital Technologies

What are the details of the steps that his department has taken to ensure that more black youth makes a breakthrough into the technology industry?

Reply:


There are a number of initiatives that the DCDT, working with its State-Owned Companies and the private sector, are rolling out to ensure more black youth enter the technology industry.

The following projects are being implemented to aggressively provide opportunities for Black youth in the ICT subsectors:

  1. The SA Connect programme, whose primary aim is to expand digital infrastructure through broadband network deployment, intends to empower SMMEs and create jobs;
  2. To support the digital economy and encourage innovation and entrepreneurship, the DCDT aims to train 90 000 beneficiaries on cellphone repairs, software development, cloud technologies, Web/App development and podcasting, amongst others. These areas are prioritised as they have the potential to increase the employability of young people and empower them to create cooperatives so as to provide services in their local areas;
  3. The Youth Internet Service Provider Project has a long-term goal of having more young people and youth-owned SMMEs being fully-fledged Internet Service Providers. Young people are trained as domain name resellers and, later, are upgraded to become domain name registrars. The project trains 50 young people per province;
  4. The department is involved in the Digitization of Youth Enterprises, which is a pilot project with 30 enterprises, focusing on the impact and requirements for digitization by youth enterprises to fully participate in e-commerce. It also seeks to maximize their digital online presence;
  5. A pilot project to create The Digital Media and Film Indaba is presently being finalised by the DCDT. It has targeted over 300 young people from rural areas. Umsinga was identified as one of the areas that has seen several popular short films and telenovelas (e.g., Isibaya) being shot in different sites;
  6. The DCDT has, through NEMISA, integrated Digital Entrepreneurship training in some of its programmes to enable young people to start their own businesses. In the Creative/Audio Visual Industry, the following programmes are being implemented in the current financial year:
  1. 2D Animation Bootcamp: Digital Literacy, and Design Foundation (SABC Campus: Gauteng)
  2. Graphic Design Bootcamp: Digital Literacy, and Design Foundation (SABC Campus: Gauteng)
  3. Interactive Media Bootcamp: Digital Literacy, and Design Foundation (SABC Campus: Gauteng)
  4. Drawing Workshop Eastern Cape: Non-accredited workshop (Cortex Hub: Eastern Cape)
  5. Radio Project: Radio Production (SABC Campus: Gauteng)
  6. Film Project: Film and Television Production (SABC Campus: Gauteng)
  7. Radio Project: Radio Production (Mpumalanga: Nelspruit)
  8. Radio Project: Radio Production (NWU Free State & Northern Cape)
  1. And, finally, the DCDT, in collaboration with SITA, developed a South African digital marketplace portal referred to as DigiTech. The purpose of the DigiTech Programme is to collate data about digital products developed locally with the aim of supporting the products’ technology enablement, promoting, and expanding their market reach. The DCDT is forging partnerships with global and local ICT companies who have existing sponsorship and mentorship programmes to support DigiTech SMMEs. The industry companies will also support the DigiTech SMMEs with technical vetting and categorisation of their digital products and SMME Development Support (access to funding, markets and skills development).


Thank You.

Graham, Ms SJ to ask the Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure

What progress has been made on the sale of the existing Head Office building of the Independent Development Trust?

Reply:

The Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure

Considerable progress has been made to date, albeit the process was delayed by having to obtain a recent Valuation Report, as the last valuation was outdated. The IDT has received a Valuation Report with a validity of up to 31 December 2023. The next step would be to table the Head Office Building Submission to the Asset Disposal Committee; inform the National Treasury; and request approval of the sale of the Head Office Building from the Executive Authority. However, these processes have not been undertaken, as the Board did not approve the proposed Head Office Lease Agreement, as explained in the response to National Assembly Question number 918 of 2023.

(e) Steps taken by the SACAA to improve air safety in the Western Cape?

The responsibility to reduce the number of accidents in general aviation is not the sole responsibility of the Regulator but of the industry who are required to comply to the standards set by the Regulator. The Regulator develops regulations, technical standards and guidance material to assist the industry to comply. At appropriate times and where negligence and non-compliance are evident, the Regulator takes enforcement actions against those affected operators and licence holders.

In terms of the number of accidents, the Western Cape accounts for the second largest number of accidents in the country. Over and above the safety recommendations issued by investigators to relevant operators and parties, the SACAA developed a General Aviation Safety Strategy (GASS) with industry to reduce the number of accidents in the general aviation sector where the above accidents are prevalent.

The solutions and activities undertaken by the Regulator and industry include developing educational guidance material to address the most pressing and common causes of accidents as informed by the investigation reports, publishing articles in a special publication developed for this purpose and undertaking a number of safety awareness and promotion events such as seminars, workshops, etc. with industry.

The reduction in the number of accidents realised just in the past two financial years i.e., 2021/22 and 2022/23, is an indication that the efforts of the GASS are bearing positive results for example, there has been a reduction in the number of accidents country-wide by 15% and a reduction of 25% in fatal accidents as well as a 29% reduction in fatalities meaning that fewer people perished as a result of aircraft accidents in the GA sector in the past financial year.

Profile picture: Hlengwa, Mr M

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

Amid widespread calls and protest action to close the Israeli Embassy in Pretoria, what (a) is the Republic’s official position on hosting the Embassy and (b) are the relevant details and reasons for taking such position?

Reply:

South Africa cannot have normal relations with Israel, as long as the latter is unwilling to sincerely negotiate a peace plan without preconditions with Palestine. South Africa cannot be a party in any way to Israel’s plans and actions that would see the ideal of Palestinian statehood reduced into balkanised entities devoid of true sovereignty, without territorial contiguity and with no economic viability. However, breaking of diplomatic relations with Israel will be counterproductive as it will also affect our Representative Office in Ramallah, Palestine and by implication weaken the meaningful role that South Africa can play in the Palestinian cause.

The Government of South Africa will be considering the various calls made to further downgrade its diplomatic relations with Israel given the flagrant breaches of international law, including war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. South Africa has called on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate these crimes which fall under its jurisdiction. A decision to downgrade will, further, need to consider whether it may impact negatively on South Africa’s ability to maintain a diplomatic presence in Palestine, which is the only link the country has to the Occupied Palestinian Territories, including Gaza. Nonetheless, the demands for a downgrade have merit. South Africa will discuss this with all relevant stakeholders to assess the approach the country takes to our diplomatic relations with Israel given the current situation in the region.

Profile picture: Zondo, Mr  S S

Zondo, Mr S S to ask the Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure

Whether he has any actionable immediate plans in place to give effect to the restructuring of the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) to ensure sustainable employment; if not; why not; if so, (a) on what date were the plans adopted by the Government, (b) what are the details of what has been implemented thus far and (c) what is the total amount of the budget that has been allocated for the implementation of the restructured EPWP?

Reply:

The Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure:

Three priority areas have been identified for implementation starting from the 2023–24 fiscal year in order to introduce urgent actionable plans to give effect to the restructuring of the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) for ensuring sustainable employment. Projects in these priority areas will be implemented with an emphasis on improving participant skills and entrepreneurial outcomes through training.

What are the relevant details of the challenges surrounding the contract of the Small Claims Court rooms which are on the premises of the Diepsloot Police Station that are not operational due to a contractual dispute and (b) on what date will the specified court rooms be operational again?

Reply:

The Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure:

a) The challenges were as a results of the absence of a governance document which outlines the responsibilities of the two user departments in shared accommodation.

The MOA was finalised on the 17th of October 2023. A round robin approach has been proposed to get signatures of the 3 accounting officers.

b) The date on which the court rooms will be operational, will be informed by the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement by all parties.

  • •At the Project level the focus is on ensuring ;

-that PSP appointments are being made;

- that planning and design processes are progressing;

-that the appointment of contractors is progressing, that construction is progressing satisfactorily, [i.e. on programme, on budget, at acceptable quality…];

and that projects are being handed over and closed out and that final accounts are being wrapped up.

(b) Monitoring can be conducted through various means as follows:

-Ministry and DG Infrastructure meetings; Meetings with individual implementing agents; DG meetings with CEO's of implementing agents and operational meetings with implementing agents

Reply:

a) The table below shows the number of foreigner related payments processed for the period by regional office.

b) The table below shows the value / amount of capital paid to foreigner related claims for the period by regional office.

c) The RAF is unable to indicate the status of documented and undocumented claimants that have been paid in the last three years as requested, as no such an indicator exists in the claims system.

However, the RAF has in line with Section 17(l) has to ensure that the accident happened “… at any place within the Republic”. The RAF has issued a directive to ensure that every foreigner submits a stamped passport indicating that they were in the Republic when the accident occurred.

Furthermore, Section 44 of the Immigration Act compels RAF as an organ of state to “ascertain the status or citizenship of the persons receiving its services and shall report to the Director-General any alleged foreigner or any person whose status or citizenship could not be ascertained”.

d) The RAF has, however, implemented controls to confirm foreign claimants’ mortality status prior to payment release. This process requires verification of passports, or asylum confirmation documents to ensure that only documented foreign claimants are compensated.

(1). what is the total number of public recreational and/or sports swimming pools i(a) the republic and (b) each (i) province, (ii) town and (iii) suburb. (2). what number of the specified pools are (a) operational and (b) not operational in each specified(i)province,(ii)town and(iii)suburb?

Reply:

(1). A reliable response regarding this question is dependent on the availability of the existence of a national sport facilities database that can filter data as per the required variables such as province, towns, and suburbs, schools, and coordinates of the exact site where the facility is located.

As a department, we have previously made efforts to ensure establishment of such database by trying to mobilise resources required to conduct a facility audit that will, among others, identify locations of all sport facilities in the country, including in terms of province, towns, suburbs, and schools.

These efforts included engagements with provinces to allocate resources from their budgets for this purpose, but budget availability was also a constraint for them. Another effort included submission of a request for R20 million under the second wave of Presidential Economic Stimulus Programme (PESP) to conduct this audit and use

it to drive employment creation among young people, but unfortunately that application was not successful.

As a result, national department has not yet conducted this audit and does not have the information as requested. However, it has engaged with Swimming South Africa (SSA) to establish a possibility of availability of this information.

Fortunately, the Federation provided a report for an audit of swimming pool facilities in Mpumalanga province conducted in 2015 which, at the least, give an idea of the minimum number of facilities that exist in the province. While the other limitation of the report is that it does not provide information to a level of town and suburb, but it gives

the total number of swimming pools in the province, as well as the district and local municipalities where they are located.

In summary, by 2015 Mpumalanga had 61 swimming pools that are accessible to the public. For a provincial distribution of these facilities kindly refer to the attached Swimming Facility Audit Report of Mpumalanga. Department is still awaiting reports covering other provinces from the Federation and they will also be shared as soon as they become available.

(2). As indicated in the response above that due to lack of facility audit conducted by the department, reliance was placed on audit conducted by Swimming South Africa, and they have so far provided a covering Mpumalanga province only. However, report reveals that of the total sixty-one swimming pools in the province, only fourteen are in good conditions and fifteen are not usable. The remaining twenty-six was in average conditions and six in poor conditions, respectively.

Mogale, Mr T to ask the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture

What (a) has he found to be the reasons for the slow pace of towns and street name changes across the Republic, particularly in the Free State and (b) measures has he taken to speed up name changes”

Reply:

(a). The slow pace of change to the names of our towns, cities and streets can be attributed to many factors. The South African Geographical Names Act 118 of 1998 does not provide for government at national level to actively propose name changes as the Minister has to take decisions on names submitted to him by applicants. Local communities are prioritising service delivery matters like housing, employment, water, and electricity over the transformation of our naming landscape. The cut in the budget allocations for the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture makes it increasingly difficult to conduct major public awareness campaigns on radio, television, and the social media.

(b). The pace of name changes in the Free State has been very slow. The South African Geographical Names Council held an awareness campaign in Bloemfontein on the 28 of June 2023.

During the awareness campaign all district municipalities and the Provincial Geographical Names Committee were given information on the process that needs to be followed when names of streets, towns and cities are proposed to be changed. This process includes public consultation with the local communities. This awareness

workshop was livestreamed to the public in the Free State to create community awareness on the urgency to transform South Africa’s naming landscape.

Reply:

(a) Please refer to Annexure A

(b)(i) The farmers were not given any equipment except for the 200 x 2 500 litres water tanks.

(ii) The process of selecting beneficiaries was done in two ways. One hundred (100) beneficiaries were food security/ subsistence/ backyard farmers identified by the Provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development through Matlala and Moletji service centres. The focus was on farmers producing at a small scale mainly for subsistence and have no access to water for their gardens. The other hundred (100) beneficiaries were indigent households who were identified by Moletji and Matlala Traditional Councils. The tanks will be used for rainwater harvesting.

(iii) Tents, podium, chairs and the sound system were hired, as well as catering for those who were in attendance.

(c)(i) The Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development (DALRRD) participated in the establishment of the Rural Safety Strategy that is led by the South African Police services (SAPS) and remains an active member of the safety strategy established in line with the National Development Plan (NDP) 2030, under a visible policing programme which is currently implemented in terms of the Rural Safety Strategy. This is an integrated and multidisciplinary approach that aims to mobilize rural communities to create a safe, secure and crime free environment that is conducive to food security, prevention of stock theft as well as social and economic stability. Members of the SAPS stock theft unit have access to DALRRD’s animal identification system, this enables relevant SAPS members to monitor stock theft including verification of animal ownership and sale of animals at auctions.

(ii)(aa),(bb) The Comprehensive Agricultural Support Programme (CASP) provides for conditional grants to Provincial Departments of Agriculture (PDAs) which caters for animal fencing as part of animal production projects. Furthermore, the Department, through its collaboration with the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) provides for agricultural infrastructure such as construct camps, fences etc on communal land to secure livestock in rural areas. However, this work is not exclusively the responsibility of DALRRD; there are other departments and agencies who also play a role in this area.

(d)(i) The supplier of the 200 water tanks is Manekwane Business Enterprise.

    (ii) R 800 000 for 200 water tanks at R 4 000.00 each.

Whether, with reference to his reply to question 3629 on 28 October 2022, in which he indicated that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) does not keep data on criminal offences committed against children specifically, his department has since instructed the NPA to commence with record keeping of (a) child-specific criminal cases as well as (b) the conviction rate for (i) child murders, (ii) attempted child murder, (iii) assault of a child with the intent to do grievous bodily harm and (iv) sexual offences against children; if not, why not; if so, what has been the total number of successful convictions in the above categories for the SA Crime Statistic quarterly reporting periods of (aa) 1 October 2022 to 31 December 2022, (bb) 1 January 2023 to 31 March 2023 and (cc) 1 April to 30 June 2023?

Reply:

A similar request was received by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in 2022 and which response is attached hereto. Since the NPA were not keeping the data, engagements and the feasibility of obtaining the important information has been undertaken.

The NPA has arranged with the South African Police Service (SAPS) in the interim to share information with the NPA from SAPS in order to interrogate and monitor child-specific cases. The Crime Registrar of the South African Police Service keeps record of the relevant information. To have access to the information held by the South African Police Services, a formal request must be submitted to the National Commissioner of SAPS.

As Indicated previously, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) prioritises all Gender-Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF) matters and more especially where the victims are children. The Sexual Offences and Community Affairs (SOCA) Unit within the NPA is tasked with, inter alia, ensuring increased access to justice for victims of GBV as well as optimal management of these matters in a victim responsive manner, in line with the Strategic Plan of the NPA.

This is done by providing pre-trial and court preparation services, often in collaboration with Civil Society Organisations (CSO), at its sixty-three (63) Thuthuzela Care Centres (TCCs) across the country. These one-stop centres provide a variety of essential psycho-social, medical, and legal services thus creating a safe space for child victims to report offences against them and receive services that are empowering them to transform into survivors.

Specialised training is also provided to prosecutors in dealing with child victims and their testimonies. Whilst prosecutors in court are prioritising these matters, data is not kept for offences committed against children specifically. Prosecutors also work closely the investigating officers of these cases and guide the investigations as and when required to do so.

When prosecutors address the court on extenuating or aggravating circumstances, the fact that a child may have been the victim of the crime is one of the various aspects highlighted when the court is addressed before the passing of sentence.

(1).Whether, with reference to the processes to change geographical names, there is a specified threshold of support that is required to implement a geographical name change; if not, on what basis is the decision taken to change geographical names; if so, what is the required threshold of support. (2). Whether a name change is implemented on the basis of one individual application only; if not, what is the basis for determining that sufficient support exists for a name to be changed; if so, what are the relevant details. (3). whether a name change process will proceed if the application for the name change does not comply with the Handbook on Geographical Names in terms of the proposed name; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details. (4). (a) on what grounds will the Protection of Personal Information Act, Act 4 of 2013, be invoked to maintain the confidentiality of the applicant and (b) what is the step-by-step process that is followed, including time frames and minimum adherence requirements that are followed from receipt of the application to the final decision by him as the Minister?

Reply:

(1). The South African Geographical Names Act 118 of 1998 does not specify a threshold requirement for the support for a name change. The Provincial Geographical Names Committees in the provinces where the name concerned is located always host public consultation meetings in the local communities. These meetings are advertised in advance and minutes and attendance registers are kept. The decisions are taken based on the count of a simple majority of people who attended the public consultation meetings where the proposed names are put to the attendees.

(2). Individual South African citizens or a group of citizens can propose a name change in terms of the South African Geographical Council Act, Act No 118 of 1998. The Minister considers the application together with relevant accompanying details including the motivation for the name change, the evidence of public consultation and where applicable, written permission from the family after whom the geographical feature is proposed to be named.

(3). All geographical features approved by the Minister for change are done in terms of the SAGNC Act 118 of 1998. The Handbook is a users’ guide derived from the Act. All names changed do follow the guidance of the Handbook on Geographical Names. In instances where the proposed name is that of a person, written permission from the affected family is required before the name change is submitted to the Minister for his consideration.

(4)(a). The POPIA Act is also invoked when a PAIA request or Parliamentary Question is made to the Department that includes personal details of applicants, informants in relation to a geographical feature application.

(b). When a geographical feature or place name is proposed for change, a prescribed South African Geographical Names Council application form needs to be completed by the applicant who must be a South African citizen. The application form is submitted to the relevant Provincial Geographical Names Committee (PGNC) in the relevant province. The PGNC will do desktop research to check if the proposed name is a

national feature, is not a duplication of an existing name, is not undesirable in terms of race, gender. The PGNC will then put out local advertisements in community radio stations and local print media informing the local community of public consultation meetings with details like the dates, venues, and times for the public consultation meetings. The PGNC will host the public consultation meetings during which the community will discuss the proposed name changes. Attendance registers and minutes are kept during these meetings. In instances the new name is the name of a person, the family of the person after whom the geographical feature will be named, written permission from that family is required. It is desirable that the local municipality concerned is also consulted in order for it to indicate its support for the name change.

A simple majority of meeting attendees is required for the name change to be supported at the local community level. Once the PGNC is satisfied that there is community support for the name change and that all required documentation like proof of community meetings, with attendance registers and minutes, the information is submitted to the South African Geographical Names Council. The SAGNC sits once a quarter to consider all geographical names applications submitted to it. The SAGNC reviews all the documentation including the application form, evidence of public consultations, attendance registers and minutes of meetings. The SAGNC will also require PGNCs to provide evidence that public consultation meetings were advertised to local communities.

Letters from affected family members will also be reviewed. Once the SAGNC is satisfied that the due process was followed and that all documentation is provided, it will recommend the name change to the Minister. The relevant documentation will be submitted to the Minister who will apply his mind before taking the decision to either approve or not approve the name change application. Once the Minister has taken a decision, the name is put in the government gazette for public information. The public has thirty days after the gazetting of a name change to submit objections in writing to the Minister. This is in terms of section 10 of the SAGNC Act 118 of 1998. The Minister

will consider all objections and respond to all objectors in writing whether to reverse the name change or sustain his initial decision to approve the name change. This concludes the process.

Myburgh, Mr NG to ask the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture

(1). What are the details of the programmes that his department has put in place to promote nation-building and reconciliation amongst all South Africans regardless of race, ethnicity and/or political persuasion. (2). Whether he has found that the promotion and singing of songs such as Kill the Boer, kill the farmer in fact undermines nation-building and the fostering of a shared vision for the future amongst all South Africans, if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details? NW4314E

Reply:

(1). Insofar as nation-building and reconciliation do not imply preserving the inherited vestiges of the unjust society characterised by racial discrimination, repression, and flagrant violations of human rights against the majority, or ignoring the necessity of guaranteeing that race, ethnicity, and/or political persuasion is not a determining factor in the material conditions of South Africans as they did in the past, the Department of Sport, Arts, and Culture continues to spearhead and coordinate the Government’s Priority 6 Social Cohesion Programme of Action as part of a rallying call to transform the material conditions of our country in order to foster conditions that are favourable for genuine reconciliation, social cohesion, and nation-building.

As should be expected, the Department, through its various Departmental programmes, contributes significantly to nation-building and reconciliation among South Africans of all races, ethnicities, and other social enclaves. Among key programmes coordinated under this Priority Area is National Days Programme through which the Department continues to pursue social cohesion, reconciliation, and national

unity. This has been accomplished by deliberately making sure that the National Day is observed not just on its actual day but also for the entire month that it falls within.

This has made it possible for the National Days Programme to be diversified throughout the month by including a range of build-up or post-national day initiatives such as dialogues, seminars, and sports and arts activities. In this manner, even South Africans who do not prefer the traditional rally format in stadiums which is ordinarily employed for National Days are accommodated and do fully participate in the celebrations and are involved in the discourse around nation-building that comes at the back of our National Days given their link to our liberation history.

Additionally, the Department also utilises its Public Entities to reach as many South Africans as possible through the National Days programme. Utilising initiatives such as theatre, exhibitions and dialogues, the Public Entities play a significant role in the National Days programme by making sure that the programme reaches their niche audiences, thereby contributing significantly to the diversity of reach of the programme. This guarantees that National Days are celebrated on an intercultural basis fully inclusive of all South Africans and serve as a platform for introspection on our past and current concerns around nation-building, freedom, unity, and reconciliation.

The Department also implements several established community engagement initiatives that are designed with the express purpose of reflecting and mobilising our communities in the efforts of our country to address numerous challenges related to social cohesion and nation-building. These programmes include:

  • The Social Cohesion Advocates Programme – This programme consists of a cohort of eminent persons in our society who create platforms to promote unity, peacebuilding reconciliation, and social cohesion in our communities. Given their expertise as, among others, peacebuilders, facilitators, and general experts in promoting social cohesion, nation-building, and reconciliation, the Social Cohesion
  • Advocates continue to work with various stakeholders such as civil society, faith-based organizations, and Traditional Leaders throughout our country to promote
  • peaceful coexistence and respond to events that put the stability of our communities and country in jeopardy.
  • Community Conversations programme – This programme is meant to bridge existing divisions, among others, along race, class, gender, religion, culture, and other social contours to foster social integration and inclusion. The Department has adopted the Community Capacity Enhancement approach to Community Conversations, which promotes the use of dialogue and deliberation skills by communities in response to challenges rather than the recent wave of violent protests and social eruptions. This programme also deepens understanding of the “other” and fosters intergroup connections, all with the aim of strengthening social cohesion, nation-building, and reconciliation in our communities and country.

To guarantee that nation-building, social cohesion, and reconciliation are not merely theoretical concepts without the potential to impact inherited racial inequality, the Department remains steered by the recommendation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to redress the past inequities, whilst integrating the previously marginalised heritage to cultivate the prospects of authentic reconciliation and social cohesion. To this end, the Department carries out the Heritage Legacy Project, whereby the Department has constructed several heritage sites and erected monuments and statues in pursuit of the transformation of the heritage landscape. For this MTSF period, these include the Sarah Baartmann Center of Remembrance; Winnie Mandela House in Brandfort; OR Tambo Legacy Project; JL Dube Amphitheatre.

The Department has further repatriated and reburied the human remains of several South Africans who were victims of our racist and brutal past such as Sarah Baartman, J B Marks, Moses Kotane and Klaas and Trooi Pienaar.

Through the South African Geographical Names Council, the Department continues to standardise the geographical names in South Africa to redress, correct and

transform our country with major towns recently changed such as Gqeberha from Port Elizabeth, Kariega from Uitenhage, Qonce from King Williamstown, and Winnie Mandela from Brandfort, and major airports having been recently changed that include the King Phalo from East London and Chief Dawid Stuurman from Port Elizabeth.

To create a national identity that is inclusive of all people and transcends racial, ethnic, religious, and other aspects of social identity, the Department has specific programmes to popularise national symbols such as the flag in every school project, the #IamtheFlag campaign, and workshops that raise awareness of national symbols based on our Passport of Patriotism. These initiatives, just to name a few, insofar as heritage is concerned, offer genuine prospects for genuine nation-building and reconciliation, and an overarching national identity that is based on the iconography that accurately reflects the demographic dynamics of our country.

The Department has specific Sports and Arts - in particular performing arts – programmes that are geared towards uniting people and building a cohesive nation where race, ethnicity and other social enclaves are not a determining factor to the life circumstances of South Africans. Sport brings people of different cultures, languages, religions, and ages together to celebrate one event, one sport, or just sport. The Department continues to promote sport as a crucial platform for promoting initiatives like prevention of GBVF, promotion of human rights, inclusion, non-racism, non-sexism, and many other important issues in society. In fact, through the Service Level Agreements, the Department has instructed different Sporting Codes to align with the National Priorities.

The results of this can be seen with the Soccer Premier League which has continued broadcasting messages calling for the end of gender-based violence, which has persisted as a worrying plague in our nation.

School sport has also proven to be a very important vehicle for promoting non-racialism and non-sexism as it brings learners from different backgrounds to interact across diverse enclaves of our society. During the MTSF period, over R1 billion has been spent on the School Sport programme, with a reach of over 419 472 learners who have participated in district championships across the country, thus creating an apt opportunity for interaction and promotion of non-racialism and non-sexism.

In the main, the Department takes particularly serious its role lead in fostering social cohesion and nation-building. This work remains critical as the legacy of colonialism and apartheid still lingers on and thus continues to texture social circumstances even in the current context of constitutional democratic order. Through the Mzansi Golden Economy Program, and in keeping with the third objective of the Priority 6 Social Cohesion Programme of Action, which is to promote social cohesion through increased interaction across space and class, the Department continues to support several arts initiatives that aim to draw diverse races and social enclaves of our country, thereby fostering unity, reconciliation, and trust in one another. These initiatives include, among others:

1. Joy of Jazz in Johannesburg, Gauteng

2. Innibos Afrikaans festival in Nelpruit, Mpumalanga

3. National Arts Festival in Makhanda, Eastern Cape

4. Johannesburg Comedy Festival – Johannesburg

These initiatives continue to be crucial in fostering not only interaction but also trust among those from diverse backgrounds. In the main, trust between people fosters the cohesion required for the promotion of genuine conditions for reconciliation and nation building thereby lowering the undesirable instances of, among others, racism, xenophobia, and homophobia.

(2). The South African Constitution has an important principle called the separation of Powers meaning the power of the state is divided between three but interdependent components. In the case of Afriforum vs Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), the court made a ruling on the matter and Members of Parliament advised to be guide by that decision. The singing of the song Dubul’ ibhunu - “Kill the Boer - Kill the Farmer” - was not hate speech, Judge Edwin Molahlehi, sitting as an Equality Court in the High Court in Johannesburg,

Reply:

1. SARS cannot speak to the specifics of a particular case. However, the legal position is that a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) approved by the Commissioner under section 30 of the Income Tax Act, must conduct one or more Public Benefit Activities (PBAs). These activities are listed in the Ninth Schedule to the ITA. In general, these activities must be conducted in a manner referred to in section 30 of the ITA i.e.

  • In a non-profit manner and with an altruistic and philanthropic intent;
  • Should not be intended to promote the economic self-interest of anyone beyond reasonable remuneration; and
  • Should be widely accessible to the general public at large (not small and exclusive groups).

In determining whether a PBO is conducting the activities as required in law, SARS will consider the merits of each case on the facts and within the framework of the legal provisions available.

2. to reassure the Honourable member that SARS addresses all non-compliance irrespective of who the taxpayer may be without fear, favour or prejudice. Again, SARS cannot speak to the specifics of a particular case. However, where it is discovered that any PBO has contravened the conditions of its approval as stated in law, its exemption will be taken on review and, if necessary, withdrawn and subjected to related tax consequences. All other sanctions available to SARS through the Tax Administration Act also apply to PBOs. Such measures available to SARS include conducting of audits and other administrative actions. In executing its legal mandate, SARS deals with all acts of non-compliance by any PBO without fear, favour or prejudice.

What total number of public schools in each (a) province, (c) town and (d) suburb have recreational and/or sports swimming pools?

Reply:

A reliable response regarding this question is dependent on the availability of the existence of a national sport facilities database that can filter data as per the required variables such

as province, towns, and suburbs, schools, and coordinates of the exact site where the facility is located.

As a department, we have previously made efforts to ensure establishment of such database by trying to mobilise resources required to conduct a facility audit that will, among others, identify locations of all sport facilities in the country, including in terms of province, towns, suburbs, and schools.

These efforts included engagements with provinces to allocate resources from their budgets for this purpose, but budget availability was also a constraint for them. Another effort included submission of a request for R20 million under the second wave of Presidential Economic Stimulus Programme (PESP) to conduct this audit and use it to drive employment creation among young people, but unfortunately that application was not successful.

As a result, national department has not yet conducted this audit and does not have the information as requested. However, it has engaged with Swimming South Africa (SSA) to establish a possibility of availability of this information.

Fortunately, the Federation provided a report for an audit of swimming pool facilities in Mpumalanga province conducted in 2015 which, at the least, give an idea of the minimum

number of facilities that exist in the province. While the other limitation of the report is that it does not provide information to a level of town, suburb, and public schools, it however

provides a total of 26 swimming pools for both public and private schools. Unfortunately name of schools, their towns and suburbs are not provided.

Reply:

Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF)

(1) As of the conclusion of the first quarter of the fiscal year 2023/2024, all state departments and public entities participating in the Government Employees Pension Fund have been diligent in remitting their monthly contributions on behalf of their employees to the Fund. The data indicates that 99.90% of the total monthly pension contributions due were received and reconciled punctually as mandated by the relevant legislation.

(a)

(i) The minor discrepancy of 0.10% does not reflect arrears from any particular state department or public entity but rather pertains to adjustments necessitated by various scenarios such as service termination or changes in service conditions.

(ii) Consequently, there are no specific public entities identified as being in arrears with contributions.

(b) Given the nature of the discrepancy, it does not affect a quantifiable number of employees in a manner that would result from arrears in contributions.

(c) The financial impact represented by the 0.10% discrepancy is being analysed and resolved on a regular basis. The administrator conducts a reconciliation process which is a routine and rigorous part of ensuring compliance and accuracy in the contributions made to the Fund.

(d) To rectify the matter and ensure complete reconciliation:

- A robust process of reconciliation is conducted monthly to address any discrepancies and ensure that contributions reflect the accurate service conditions of all employees.

- Any adjustments required are being handled expeditiously, with a standard resolution timeframe of 30 days.

- Continuous monitoring and engagement with all participating employers are being maintained to ensure timely payment and accurate reporting of contributions, thus fostering a culture of compliance and transparency.

(2) No. All the concerned state departments and public entities have maintained a consistent track record of timely contributions, irrespective of the fiscal situation

South African Revenue Service (SARS)

1. From an employer point of view, SARS pays all statutory contributions on behalf of its employees to third parties such as Government Employees Pension Fund, Medical Schemes and the South African Revenue Service (PAYE, UIF and SDL) in full on a monthly basis. The current CC measures has no negative impact on the monthly commitments for the current staff establishment covered by the grant allocation.

From a Revenue Administration point of view, SARS is responsible for the collection of PAYE, UIF and SDL part of the payroll creditors (contributions) from respective employers. Pension and Medical Aid contributions are paid directly to the respective fund administrators.

(a) Of the 5,303 Departments and Public entities, 4,899 (92%) pay their PAYE, VAT and other tax obligation on time. In observing taxpayer confidentially provision of the Tax Administration Act, we are unable to provide any further specific taxpayer information including the list of the defaulting taxpayers as prompted by the question, it should be noted further that the specific entities can provide directly to the parliamentary oversight bodies such information.

(b) SARS information is limited to Employer account and the defaulting taxpayer debt is at an aggregate entity level. Information on the affected Employees is not yet available from the current Tax Administration data.

(c) The balance of 404 entities (from the total of 5,303) owe SARS R5.9bn in debt for the 2023/24 fiscal year comprised of PAYE R2.4bn, VAT R3.5bn. Of the R5.9bn debt R1bn is under dispute leaving a balance of R4.9bn undisputed of which R2.9bn is older than 3 years.

(d) SARS debt collection processes are employed to follow up on defaulting taxpayers and arrangements made to enforce that the debt is settled within reasonable time where feasible. Engagements with National Treasury to deduct from Grants the necessary amounts to settle taxes owed to SARS have been evoked as the last resort following lack of cooperation or lack of positive response from defaulting taxpayers. It is genuinely concerning for State Organs not to comply with the very tax laws that generate revenue that enables them to exist in order to delivery on their respective mandates of rendering public service to SA citizens who are the taxpaying community.

2. Prior to the Cost Containment measures coming into effect, SARS records have over the years noted an increasing level of Departments and SOCs indebtedness to SARS. There is no correlation between the current Cost Containment measures and the increase in the Departments and SOCs inability to pay their tax obligations over to SARS. This will be monitored closely in the coming months to observe trends post the implementation of the Cost Containment measures.

This resulted in improved performance in Quarter 3. In addition, one (1) SMS member was disciplined for poor performance and dereliction of duties and issued with a Final Written Warning.

COMPENSATION FUND

For the current financial year 2023/2024, the Fund routed two separate submissions to the DG to approve the intention to institute progressive discipline action against two Senior Managers found to be performing poorly in their respective responsibilities. As per the disciplinary protocols in public sector the disciplinary letters will inform the employees of the respective charge and will afford them right of reply. The reply will be reviewed and further action will be taken. The compensation fund is awaiting the approval of the submission. The Fund has also had a 50% resignation of Chief directors and Directors end of 2022 before disciplinary action could be taken for poor performance

In terms of the Chapter 7 of the senior management handbook and the Public Service Act. The pieces of legislation do not make provision for the employer to take steps to ensure that no person is employed pending investigation. The only issue that is commonly practiced in the public service is that once the investigation is complete with recommendations to institute disciplinary action against the said officer, the report should be forwarded to a new employer to implement the recommendations or to request that the new employer continue with the investigation if the process of investigation was not completed by the former employer due to the officer resigned. When the former Commissioner resigned there was no investigation into his performance.

Pambo, Mr V to ask the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation

In light of how global solidarity and sanctions played a significant role in undermining the Apartheid project in the Republic, what is the government doing practically to show solidarity with the people of Palestine, except the perceived lip service and empty messages?

Reply:

South Africa and Palestine are currently working on formulating practical strategies towards taking up the Palestinian cause to the ICC and ICJ to declare Israel as an apartheid state. South Africa will directly petition the ICJ to give advisory opinion on the legal consequences arising from the ongoing violation by Israel of the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, from its prolonged occupation, settlement and annexation of the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967.

On the continental level, South Africa was instrumental in lobbying for Israel to not being granted an observer status to the African Union. In February 2023, South Africa welcomed the suspension of Israel’s observer status at the African Union. South Africa objected against the unilateral granting of official observer status by the Chairperson African Union (AU) Commissioner, on 22 July 2021. This action came at a time when the Israeli oppression became more brutal, the oppressed people of Palestine were and are subjected to bombardments and continued illegal settlements on their land, further hampering any efforts to the peace process.

On the global level, South Africa supports Palestinian efforts for membership of the United Nations and the creation of positive, credible, and lasting international mechanisms to address the Palestinian cause based on international law.

On the domestic level, the South African Parliament voted on 7 March 2023 in favour of a motion to downgrade its Embassy in Israel, to a Liaison Office. Since the recall of South Africa’s Ambassador to Tel Aviv in 2018, the South African Embassy in Israel has been headed by a Charge d’ Affaires.

(1) Whether she will furnish Mr N P Masipa with the relevant details about the dysfunctional agri-parks regarding the (a) total amount spent on each dysfunctional agri-park project, (b) reasons for the failures, (c) actions taken against the implementors and (d) total number of jobs lost as a result of the failed projects; (2) whether her department intends to allocate additional money towards the projects; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. There are no dysfunctional Farmer Production Support Units (FPSUs). In the Free State the Springbokfontein Agri-Hub is experiencing conflict within the existing cooperative, which will be resolved by registering a new cooperative. This however does not indicate that the Agri-Hub is a failure or dysfunctional.

(a),(b),(c),(d) Falls away.

The Agri-parks programme is comprised of three legs, i.e, the Farmer Production Support Unit (FPSU), where mechanisation and production inputs are provided; the Agri-Hub where production is collated with a little bit of value addition; and Rural-Urban Markets where the produce is sold. Currently, the Department is implementing only the first leg of the programme, which is the Farmer Support Programme (FPSU). The diagram below depicts a typical Agri-park.

There are two (2) major components in the establishment of a Farmer Production Support Unit, (FPSU) namely: Infrastructure and Operations. The functionality of the FPSU is determined or defined by the FPSUs ability to provide any of the following to producers towards agricultural production and market access:

  • Governance structure;
  • Production inputs;
  • Mechanisation support;
  • Human resources support; and
  • Producer registration.

(2) Yes. Please refer to Annexure A.

Whether, with regard to the matter of the SA National Road Agency SOC Ltd (SANRAL) relating to Farm Biesjesvallei, 149, Portion 106 and a certain person (name furnished), the portion of the farm belong to SANRAL; if not, what is the status of the transfer; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The property in question relates to a historic matter where the landowner signed an agreement with SANRAL and agreed to the transfer of the road portion to SANRAL’s name without compensation. The portion of property falls within the road reserve of N14 section 11 that was taken over from the Province and declared as a National Route in 2006 under Declaration 217 of 2006. The N14 has been in existence for more than 25 years as a provincial road before its declaration a National Road in 2006. The transfer relates to a process where SANRAL transferred the road reserve (between road fence boundaries) of roads that were ceded to SANRAL by the Province or Municipalities. In nearly all instances a lifetime right was acquired by the previous Roads Authority but the road reserve portion (between road fence boundaries) was never separated or subdivided from the original owner’s property. The landowner has no control or use of the road reserve portion (between road fence boundaries) as he cannot lawfully prevent the public from using the road, hence it is considered a bare dominium to him. This is also to the benefit of the landowner as he/she will now pay rates on a smaller portion of land that excludes the road reserve portion.

Landowners are not compensated for the road reserve portion during the transfer process because they were compensated for their land by the previous Roads Authority that ceded the road to SANRAL.

Although the landowner originally agreed, the issue of compensation later became a major contention from the landowner and was never resolved as no agreement could be reached with him in this regard.

Despite numerous engagements, the landowner was unwilling to sign transfer documents and was served with a notice informing him about the matter and that it was going to be referred to the Minister of Transport for expropriation of the road reserve portion (between road fence boundaries) if he did not sign the necessary transfer documents. The matter will be referred to the Minister of Transport for expropriation as per SANRAL Act..

Nolutshungu, Ms N to ask the Minister of Transport

(a) How far is the process of formalising and/or providing subsidies for the taxi industry and (b) what are the relevant details of the time frame to introduce the specified subsidy?

Reply:

1. One of the key problems identified in the current public transport system in South Africa, which is being attended to, is the lack of integration. This is manifested in the current subsidy regime that is still mode specific i.e. rail and bus. Recently, great emphasis has been sought to introduce subsidies for the minibus-taxi operators. Unfortunately, the mode linked operations and subsidy approach prevents the planning for and implementation of efficient services to commuters

2. As a result, the Department is developing a public transport subsidy policy that will locate the subsidisation of minibus taxi users within the wider, multi-modal subsidy framework as part of the public transport funding reforms. The draft subsidy policy proposes a move away from mode specific subsidisation to a position where a subsidised network will be serviced by a combination of modes to minimise the cost of transport. Integrated transport plans will be used to design the most efficient public transport systems irrespective of modes. There are a number of different subsidy models being considered and explored that includes the minibus taxi industry based on applicable integrated transport plans.

3. The draft public transport subsidy policy is being processed for submission to Cabinet for consideration and approval for a public consultation process. Only when the final policy is approved by Cabinet will it be implemented.

What (a) is the significant objective of the 2023 October Transport Month that she launched on 29 September 2023 under the theme Siyakha and (b) does she expect to achieve?

Reply:

a)  The October Transport Month Campaign is a flagship programme of the Department that is implemented every year to celebrate the achievements of the Department, its entities and provincial departments of transport, municipalities and other achievements of the sector. The campaign celebrates contributions that enable the realisation of government’s economic recovery objectives in the aftermath of the ravages of the COVID 19 pandemic, which we have achieved through transport infrastructure build and maintenance projects; this includes improvement of transport services delivered and we celebrate the innovation that improves efficiencies in the delivery of services and/or propels sustainable infrastructure build that is cutting edge, while, highlighting areas of success in transport safety and security, development of transport skills, jobs created and growing transport industries and enterprises.

The campaign also aims to influence perceptions towards the transport brand and deepen awareness of transport policies and plans.

b) Following from the above exposition, what we aim to achieve through the OTM Campaign 2023 therefore, is a better positioning of the department and its entities to the public and our stakeholders, where the positioning implies:

  1. Having fulfilled commitments to deliver transport infrastructure and services resulting in job creation and economic development;
  2. A strong brand with a service delivery track record and the will to attend to challenges;
  3. Increased awareness on the DoT’s programmes and improved public perceptions about our work across spheres and thus growing our credibility as capable of delivering on promises made;
  4. Increased awareness on the measures taken to improve safety and security across all modes of transport; and
  5. Demonstrating work being done to improve the public transport system towards better access, affordability, increased efficiency and reliability of services, and improving overall safety and security across all modes of public transport with better awareness of key policy decisions made to enhance services.

Secondly, the campaign will also have enhanced the direct unmediated interaction with stakeholders, mobilised society and consolidated social partnerships in our work. It will therefore enhance citizen-centred participatory interactions in mobilising social compacts and consensus while showing how we have enabled job creation and improved service delivery.

Thirdly, the campaign would have won over members of the communities, business, and civil society as transport brand ambassadors and it would allow for greater cooperation across all spheres of government.

(2) what (a) process was followed that led up to the cancellation of the medical benefits and (b) is the total number of employees who have retired and are not receiving the post-retirement medical aid benefits. (3) what is the (a) number and details of employees affected by the cancellation of medical benefits and (b) actuarially calculated cost of the medical aid benefit remaining in force until all specified employees employed before the 1 May 1998 have died; (4) whether she will furnish Mr R A Lees with a copy of the letter sent to employees regarding the cancellation of the medical aid benefits; if not, why not; if so, on what date; (5) what is the status of case number GATW15422-21 that is or was before the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration?

Reply:

a (i), Details of The RAF Post-Retirement Medical Aid Benefit (PRMA);

PRMA is a historical condition of service benefit provided to employees who were permanently employed with RAF (Fund) prior to 01 May 1998.

In terms of this benefit, the RAF would subsidize 50% (fifty percent) towards the medical aid contributions on/and throughout the retirement of such employees until the death of the retired employee or voluntary termination by the employee.

(a)(ii)

The post-retirement medical aid benefit was discontinued due to not only the dire financial status of the Fund but also the long-term unsustainable financial liability that such a benefit would have on the RAF.

The total estimated liability on this scheme has grown from R2 300 000 (two million three hundred thousand rands) (in April 1998 to an estimated R55 609 000 (fifty-five million six hundred and nine thousand rands) as of 31 March 2021 as per the actuarial valuation report.

The 31 March 2021 actuarial valuation report further projected a substantial increase in this liability to sixty-two million four hundred and sixty thousand rands (R62 460 000) as of 31 March 2022 This figure would continue to escalate exponentially considering changes in mortality rates and high inflation.

The RAF management with due and careful consideration of the above factors and the current financial sustainability of the RAF resolved that it was not viable to continue with the benefit.

The benefit was therefore discontinued with effect from 01 October 2021 for all eligible and active employees.

Moreover, this termination further ensures that the provision of benefits is consistently applied, uniformly across the board, benefitting all employees. Whereas only a few employees benefited from this benefit in the past it is now applied equitably and affordably amongst all employees. The Fund therefore sought to apply benefits to all its employees, not just a few.

(b)There is no alternative or equivalent benefit provided to the affected employees due to cost containment measures.

All employees are remunerated on total employee costs (TEC) and this ensures a uniform and equitable pay structure for all RAF employees.

All employees are equally responsible for ensuring medical cover post-retirement.

(2)(a) Upon confirmation of the Fund’s legal recourse in terms of its obligation and rights, an extensive and transparent consultation process was undertaken with affected parties. This included written correspondence with affected parties and consultation with current and those employees eligible for the benefit.

Following that, consultations with individual employees, and notice of termination letter(s) were issued to all affected employees on October 2021.

(2)(b)Of the 107 (one hundred and seven) employees, 8 (eight) employees have since retired post the October 2021 and are not receiving the benefit.

(3)(a) There were 107 (one hundred and seven) active employees who would have qualified and were affected by the cancellation of this medical benefit for the financial year ended 31 March 2022.

Of the 107(one hundred and seven) employees, 8 (eight)have since retired and did not receive the benefit as this was terminated before their retirement date. 3(three) took voluntary severance package, 3(three) deceased, 3 (three)resigned and 1(one) dismissed.

There are currently 88 (eighty-eight) employees in service affected by the cancellation.

There are currently 22 (twenty-two) employees who have the benefit as they retired before the benefit was terminated on 01 October 2021.

(3)(b)The total estimated liability on this scheme has grown from R2 300 000 (two million three hundred thousand rands) in April 1998 to an estimated R55 609 000 (fifty-five million six hundred and nine thousand rands) as of 31 March 2021 confirmed by the actuarial valuation report.

This actuarial valuation report further projected a substantial increase in liability to increase to R62 460 000 sixty-two million four hundred and sixty thousand rands at 31 March 2022.

(4) Letters were issued to all affected employees

(5)The CCMA has postponed the matter indefinitely at the request of the employees. The

matter will be set down only when the employees revert to the CCMA.

Sithole, Mr KP to ask the Minister of Transport

Whether there have been any issues in the pay-outs of the Road Accident Fund in the past two financial years; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The RAF, over the past 3 years, implemented quality assurance processes. These include checking for: i) payments made induplicate, ii) mortality of claimants, iii) foreign claimants are in the country legally and iv) if tax affairs of the claimant representative attorney are in order. Quality assurance processes are in line with the PFMA, the Immigrations Act, Treasury Regulations and any other applicable framework.

Out of this exercise, a number of challenges were identified and are being rooted out.

Also, the RAF obtained Judgement in terms of Rule 45A to suspend all court orders not older than 180 days as a means to have equitable and systematic payment process. In this regard older claims are prioritised.

Implementation of quality assurance processes together with obtaining Rule 45A judgement saw the RNYP reduce to below R10 billion in both 2021/22 and 2022/23 financial years.

RAF has since been able to make payment to all claims which have been quality assured.

Whether, in light of the recent incidents of violence involving Intercape buses in Queenstown, Cofimvaba, Butterworth, Engcobo, Idutywa and Tsomo in the Eastern Cape, where the SA Police Service resorted to escorting buses travelling around those areas as a protection measure, her department has investigated the circumstances that led to the bus attacks; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The matter of intimidation, attacks and violence against Intercape’s operations in parts of the Eastern Cape is currently servicing before the High Court of South Africa, Eastern Cape Division in Makhanda. Intercape argues that it has been deliberately subjected to sustained acts of intimidation and violence allegedly by some taxi associations. They also alluded to the fact that these acts of violence were reported to the South African Police Services for investigation and bringing perpetrators to book. The outcome of these processes would expose the root cause of the problem.

Whether, in light of the water shortage in the Bojanala District, the proliferation of illegal chrome mining and the beneficiation of chrome by plants without water use licenses, he will declare chrome beneficiation via the use of spiral plants as a controlled activity that relies on the provision in Section 38(1) of the National Water Act, Act 36 of 1998; if not, why not, if so, by what date will the process begin?

Reply:

According to the National Water Act (Act No.36 of 1998), [Section 37 (I)], spiral plants are not considered to be a controlled activity. However, Section 38 (1) allows the Minister to declare any activity as controlled if it is deemed to have detrimental impact on water resources.
