Hadebe, Mr TZ to ask the Minister of Environmental Affairs

(a) How does her department plan to enforce the separate source initiative mentioned in the Operation Phakisa: Chemicals and Waste Economy and (b) what will happen to those who refuse/fail to comply?

Reply:

(a) The Department is putting Norms and Standards for waste separation at source in 2018/19. The administrative and criminal enforcement would be carried out by Environmental Management Inspectors as empowered by the National Environmental Management: Waste Act, Act No 59 of 2008. However, municipalities that have made separation of waste at source mandatory as part of their by-laws have enforcement powers that they can also exercise accordingly.

(b) The Department is bound by the Constitution to support those that fail to meet the Norms and

Standards however criminal enforcement can be considered as a last resort in keeping with
co-operative governance.

In terms of the co-operative governance approach, the Department will endevour to assist those to come into compliance. Enforcement will be considered as the last resort to ensure compliance with the Norms and Standards.

Lekota, Mr M to ask the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs

What steps has he taken to ensure that all three spheres of government work in the spirit of cooperative governance to mitigate and to prepare coherently for the current and worsening water crisis in the City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality?

Reply:

The Department of Cooperative Governance (DCOG) established a multi-sectoral structure that coordinates the drought and water scarcity situation in the country. The National Joint Drought Coordination Committee (NJDCC) is operational and responsible for the coordination of drought and water scarcity conditions, response and intervention measures. The committee is made up of the following key stakeholders:

    • Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA),
    • Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF),
    • Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS),
    • Department of Rural Development and Land Reform (DRDLR),
    • Department of Health (DOH),
    • Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA),
    • Department of Labour (DOL),
    • Department of Transport (DOT),
    • South African National Defense Force (SANDF)
    • Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) and
    • South African Weather Service (SAWS)
    • Provincial Disaster Management Centres

Additional to the NJDCC, the Provincial Intervention Task Teams (PITT), which comprise relevant organs of state within the three spheres of government, were established to directly engage and consult provinces and municipalities to interrogate their mitigation and response plans and also mobilise resources in line with each organ of state’s mandate. The Western Cape Province was visited and engaged to mobilise resources to address the drought and water scarcity situation. It is important to indicate that the Provincial Disaster Management Centers participates in the NJDCC to ensure proper coordination within sector departments, support to the municipalities and provide progress reports on the situation.

The NJDCC reports to the Inter-Ministerial Task Team (IMTT), led by the Minister of Cooperative Governance, Mr Des Van Rooyen, on drought and water scarcity conditions for political oversight and guidance response and recovery measures within the country. The department further coordinates and ensure integration through the MINMEC structure.

Profile picture: Mileham, Mr K

Mileham, Mr K to ask the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs

(1)Whether any appointments of (a) municipal managers and/or (b) senior managers reporting to municipal managers have been blocked by any provincial Member of the Executive Committee (MEC) for co-operative governance and traditional affairs since 3 August 2016; if so, in each case, (i) which municipality was affected, (ii) what is the (aa) name and (bb) proposed position of the manager who was blocked and (iii) what was the reason for the relevant MEC’s decision; (2) whether the specified positions have subsequently been filled; if not, in each case, (a) why not and (b) by which date will the position be filled; if so, in each case, (i) on what date was the appointment made and (ii) who was appointed?

Reply:

The information requested by the Honourable Member is not readily available in the Department. The Department has, however, engaged the Provincial Departments responsible for Local Government to obtain the relevant information from the municipalities. The information will be submitted to the Honourable Member as soon as it is available.

Dreyer, Ms AM to ask the Minister of Public Works

(a) What are the details of the procedures currently employed by his department when employees apply for and are granted leave (b) are manual or automated systems used and (c) what procedures are in place to ensure that all leave taken by employees is captured and granted timeously?

Reply:

a) The Determination and Directive on Leave of Absence in the Public Service as prescribed by the Department of Public Service and Administration is utilised. An employee must submit his/her application for annual leave in advance, unless unforeseen circumstances prevent him/her from doing so. If confronted with unforeseen circumstances which necessitate the utilization of annual leave, the employee must personally notify his/her supervisor/manager immediately. A verbal message to the supervisor/manager by a relative, fellow employee or friend is only acceptable if the nature and/or extent of the unforeseen circumstances prevents the employee from informing the supervisor/manager personally.

An employee must submit an application for annual leave personally or through a relative, fellow employee within 5 working days after the first day of absence. If the employee fails to submit the application on time or compelling reasons why an application cannot be submitted, the supervisor/manager must immediately notify the employee that if such application is not received within 2 working days, the leave period will be regarded as unpaid leave; and inform the Human Resource division.

Should the employee default on the notification the relevant authority shall approve such absence as unpaid leave. The employee’s supervisor/manager/ Head of Department and/or his/her delegate must within two working days from receipt of the leave application form recommend/not recommend and/or approve/disapprove this leave application and submit to the relevant Human Resource division in the department.

b) Manual system for submission of leave is utilised. The capturing of leave and the management of leave credits are done on PERSAL (Personnel and Salary Administration System).

c) Each Unit has a leave administrator that submit on a weekly basis leave forms to HR with a leave register. HR checks the leave forms and registers as well as the leave captured for compliance with the relevant legislation. Reminders to submit leave timeous to HR are send every quarter to the whole Department to ensure that the system is always updated. Units that submit leave late are informed and repeat offenders are reported to Branch Heads. Disciplinary action can in terms of the Determination and Directive on Leave of Absence be taken against the employee and manager.

Dreyer, Ms AM to ask the Minister of Public Works

(1) (a) What has been the vacancy rate in his department (i) in each of the past three financial years and (ii) since 1 April 2017, (b) how many of the vacancies are considered critical and (c) what are the reasons for not filling the vacancies; (2) whether he has found that the vacancies have a negative impact on the mandate of his department; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1(a). The vacancy rates of the Department for the past three financial years are as follows:

(i) 2014/15 - (21.6%)

2015/16 - (15.3%)

2016/17 - (16.03%)

(ii) As at 01 April 2017 the vacancy of the Department was 16.03%

(b). The department is currently in a transition; migrating from the old to the newly approved organisational structures and is therefore not able to provide the current and accurate number of vacancies for critical occupations. However, the number of critical vacancies as at 31 March 2017 was as follow:

Critical occupations

Number of posts vacant

Architects town and traffic planners

13

Chemical and physical science technicians

3

Civil engineering technicians

9

Electrical and electronics engineering technicians

3

Engineering science related

38

Engineers and related professionals

28

Mechanical engineering technicians

0

Quantity surveyors and related professionals not classed elsewhere

10

TOTAL

104

(c) The non-filling of positions was as a result of the scarcity of skills and the review of the organisational structure. The organisational structures were approved 30 September 2016 and the Department is finalizing the migration processes in terms of matching and placement.

2. Yes, critical vacancies have a negative impact on the mandate of the department as they hamper on service delivery. The department is employing retired professionals to close the skills gaps and provide mentorship to candidate professionals.

Notes: Reasons for delays with settling the invoices

Nemisa

The reasons for the delays relates to dispute of invoices between supplier and end user; procurement documents not made available to finance to support the expenditure; dispute of rental to be paid as charged by Landlord

BBI

The 52 invoices are primary made up of 43 Tourvest invoices of which invoices have queries and once resolved will be paid.

SAPO

The invoices have not been paid due to the constrained cash flow position of both SAPO and CFG.

USAASA

The invoices not paid for more than 30 days relates to travel agents. The delays are as a results of the prolonged time to resolve queries with the service providers relating to i) lack of supporting documents provided by service providers, ii) rates charged on invoices not agreeing to quotations. The amount outstanding relating to rental of office printers was withheld due to non-completeness of services.

SENTECH

Invoices under query due to dispute over contractual assessment rates, Invoice under dispute due to rate of exchange, Invoice under dispute due to rate of exchange, Pre- payment Unreconciled due to price fluctuations in diesel, Refund from Avusa, Current invoice to be paid end of November, Incorrect Posting SAP, Masterdata (banking details) under query,

SITA

Note 1: 43 invoices amounting to R166 625 437.65 relates to Microsoft Ireland that SITA procured on behalf of consumers. SITA only pays Microsoft once the money is recovered from the customers. Of this 15 invoices amounting to R128 812 016.37 is about 120 days.

This arrangement is in place as part of SITA’s cash flow management in order to align cash inflows with cash outflows.

Note 2: 107 invoices amounting to R75 703 394.57 included in the amount over 120 days relates to disputes that are subject to formal investigations and are therefore disputes.

Payments are only processed after the formal investigations are finalized and any related disputes are resolved in line with best practice and also to ensure compliance with the PFMA.

Note 3: 580 invoices included in the amounts over 120 days amounting to R73 703 694.23 relates to disputes with suppliers that are in the process of being addressed with the specific suppliers

This relates to various disputes with specific suppliers. Invoices related to these disputes will be paid as soon as disputes are resolved in line with pest practices and also to ensure compliance with the PFMA.

Note 4: The rest of the invoices relates to operational reasons that are being addressed. The balance of invoices outstanding for longer than 120 days are 80 invoices amounting to R14 000 408.80. This small number of invoices requires further follow-up and verification before they can be paid.

With reference to the impending water shortage disaster within the City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality, what were the circumstances and motivation that informed the National Disaster Management centre’s refusal to provide R500 million to the specified municipality to assist towards mitigating the disaster?

Reply:

The National Disaster Management Centre (NDMC) did not refuse to provide R500 million funding request from the City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality to mitigate the impact of the disaster as a result of drought. The NDMC in collaboration with the relevant stakeholders, mainly Western Cape Provincial Disaster Management Centre and the Department of Water and Sanitation conducted disaster assessments in the City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality to determine the drought projects to be funded within the disaster grants. It is important to indicate that the disaster grants are conditional and allocated in line with the grant frameworks and the Division of Revenue Act (Act No. 3 of 2017). The NDMC only funded projects that fell within the grant frameworks conditions. The Western Cape Provincial Disaster Management Centre and the City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality were advised to refer other projects that are not in line with the conditions for the disaster grants to other existing programmes within government.

Additionally, the City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality made a presentation to the NDMC where they indicated that they have reprioritized funds within their internal resources to address the drought conditions. Therefore, the funding request for the City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality was granted based on the projects that complied with the grant framework conditions

Whether he received any documentation from provincial Members of the Executive Council responsible for cooperative governance in terms of (a) section 137(1) and (2) and/or (b) section 139 (1) and (2) of the Local Government: Municipal Finance Management Act, Act 56 of 2003, in each of the past three financial years; if so, in each case, (i) which municipalities were affected, (ii) what was the date on which he received the documentation, (iii) what was the nature of the financial problem and (iv) what steps were taken in each case?

Reply:

(i) According to the records at the disposal of the Department, we only received documentation in respect of interventions in Kannaland and eDumbe local Municipalities in the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, respectively.

(ii) The dates on which the documentation was received were 10 February 2017 and 23 May 2017 for Kannaland Local Municipality, and 30 August 2017 for eDumbe Local Municipality.

(iii) The nature of the financial problem at Kannaland Local Municipality was that the audit finding from the Auditor General for the financial year ending in June 2016 indicated that the municipality received an adverse finding, and that subsequent facts had confirmed that the municipality was experiencing a serious financial crisis which resulted in it being unable to meet its financial obligations. Regarding eDumbe Local Municipality, the nature of the financial problem was that the municipality’s cash flow situation had seriously deteriorated to the extent that there were insufficient funds to pay for critical operational expenditure.

(iv) From the documentation submitted by the Western Cape Minister for Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning, Honourable Mr Anton Bredell, the initial step taken was the resolution by the Provincial Executive adopted on 07 December 2016 to request the Provincial Treasury to prepare an appropriate financial recovery plan for the Kannaland Local Municipality. In addition, his Department and the Provincial Treasury were requested by the Provincial Executive to develop and implement a targeted support package to address the needs of the municipality. Several subsequent steps have since been taken by the Provincial Executive to assist the municipality to overcome its shortcomings, and these include the preparation, finalization and adoption of the municipality’s financial recovery plan which is currently being implemented, as well as the Financial Management Grant funded by the Provincial Treasury.

From the documentation submitted by the KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Honourable Ms Nomusa Dube-Ncube, the step taken was the resolution by the Provincial Executive adopted on 19 July 2017 to intervene at eDumbe Local Municipality in terms of section 136(2) of the MFMA, read with section 139(1) of the Constitution, and to authorize the MEC to appoint a suitably qualified Financial Administrator to draft and implement a recovery plan in the municipality. Another step taken by the Provincial Executive was to issue a directive in terms of section 139(1)(a) of the Constitution to the Municipal Council to authorize the Financial Administrator to, among others, take all decisions in relation to the finances of the municipality and to report monthly thereon to it and the MEC.

With reference to the product design and waste minimisation plans of her Department which certain official’s (name and details furnished) claims will be carried out by raising awareness, (a) what other measures will be taken to reduce waste, and (b) how will awareness reduce waste?

Reply:

a) The following measures will be implemented to promote waste reduction:

  • Developing capacity through a specialised programme which upskills agri-stakeholders to minimise food loss.
  • Compilation and updating of packaging design guidelines with the Department of Trade and Industry, Industry Associations and SABS, and a voluntary grading scheme with marketing value for brand owners can improve the design of packaging and increase collaboration between brand owners and recycling companies.
  • Formalising the packaging industry extended producer responsibility plans to enable and support the unification and alignment around packaging design guidelines and other packaging industry initiatives, a mechanism which formalises Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR).
  • Implementation of packaging design guideline once it has been developed.

b) The awareness initiatives are additional measures to enhance waste minimisation and promote the recycling economy. These measures aim to create a joint platform for communicating messages to improve consumer behaviour and industry practice towards pro-recycling in the waste sector by focusing on specific areas, including:

  • minimisation of food waste by eating ugly fruit;
  • separation of waste at household-level (e.g. promote the incentives and/or Buy Back Centres, re-inforce the benefits of not contaminating paper waste with food waste, etc.); and
  • safe disposal of waste (e.g. promote and create awareness on the e-Waste drop-off centres).

The awareness raising measures will increase consumer awareness and demand for recyclable products that are packaged in an environmentally friendly manner.

Reply:

1. a) Yes. The participants representing the ewaste sector requested that waste charges be introduced to increase the collection rates of ewaste.

b) The Department will be implementing a policy mechanism provided for in Section 28 of the National Environmental Management Waste Act, Act No. 59 of 2008. This policy mechanism is the Indstry Waste Management Plans (IndWMP).

c) The implementation of IndWMP promotes local beneficiation of waste materail. This will require capital funding to support large infrastructure and technology investments. These will be funded through the waste charges implemented.

2. a) There is no legislation currently in place to compel the end user to dispose of the e-waste in line with the waste hierarchy. The implementation of the levy will enable Product Responsibility Organisations (PROs) to provide financial incentves to encourage the end users to take back any redundant equipment to a buy or taker-back centre or an accredited recycler. The IndWMPs will also contain targets for collection and recycling. The Producer will be legally required to achieve these targets, and there will be adequate public awareness programs as part of these plans as well.

b) The plastic bag levy is collected by the South African Revenue Service and transferred to the National Revenue Fund. The new Industry Waste Management Plan for Paper and Packaging will include measures to collect waste plastics in general, of which plastic bags are a part of. The Industry Waste Management Plan levy will be approved together with the approved plan for the collection of the various plastics, including plastic bags.

Reply:

I have been furnished with a reply by the CEO of the IDC, Mr Geoffrey Qhena, to the question, which follows below.

“There are no known members of the Gupta family that are Shareholders at Foskor. Historically the IDC has not been aware of any links by the Foskor Shareholders to the Gupta family.

Subsequent to the parliamentary question to the IDC, an extensive search to establish any links was undertaken.This search revealed no link to Coromandel International Limited, Sun International (FZE) Dubai, Kopano Foskor Employees Trust (SPV 3) and Ba-phalaborwa and Umhlathuze Community Trust (SPV 2). A link was however established with the Manyoro Consortium (SPV1).

To our knowledge, a possible connection is that of a Ms R Govender, with an ultimate indirect percentage in Foskor of 0,23% of the equity via the Manyoro Consortium. The consortium is a broadly held BEE entity. Ms R Govender is not involved in Foskor operations. Following the parliamentary question we have since established that she serves as a director in companies with Gupta family shareholding.”

(1)How many officials and/or employees in her department were granted permission to have businesses and/or do business dealings in the past three financial years; (2) are any of the officials and/or employees that have permission to have businesses and/or do business dealings doing business with the Government; if so, (a) what was the purpose of each business transaction, (b) when did each business transaction occur and (c) what was the value of each business transaction?

Reply:

(1) Three officials were granted permission to have businesses in the past three financial years.

(2) All three requests for approval were not for business with the state or its organs.

I wish to point out to the Honourable Member that employees are prohibited from doing business with the state or its organs. Incidentally, it was during my tenure as Minister of Public Service and Administration that the Public Administration Management Act of 2013 which introduced the prohibition was drafted, processed through Cabinet and Parliament and was enacted by the President in 2013.

Honourable Member, the prohibition referred to above is currently enforceable through section 13 (c) of the Public Service Regulations. The said section stipulates that an employee shall not conduct business with any organ of state or be a director of a public or private company conducting business with an organ of state, unless such an employee is in an official capacity a director of a company listed in schedule 2 and 3 of the Public Finance Management Act”.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

In terms of the Public Service Regulations 13 (c), “An employee shall not conduct business with any organ of state or be a director of a public or private company conducting business with an organ of state, unless such an employee is in an official capacity a director of a company listed in schedule 2 and 3 of the Public Finance Management Act”;

Further, in terms of the Public Service Regulations 24, “An application by an employee to perform remunerative work outside his or her department shall be in accordance with the process determined by the Minister and in the form issued by the Minister.”

Accordingly, a Directive on Conducting Business with an Organ of State was issued in January 2017 by the Minister for Public Service and Administration.

(c) In accordance with the established practise applicable to parliamentary questions and guidelines contained in the document titled, “Guide to Parliamentary Questions in the National Assembly”, I will not provide names of each contractor appointed for each project. The document referred to specifically states the following:

 

Questions are to be framed as concisely as possible. All unnecessary adjectives, references and quotations are omitted. Names of persons, bodies and, for example, newspapers are only used in questions if the facts surrounding the case have been proven. As the mere mention of such names could be construed as publicity for or against them, it should be clear that this practice is highly undesirable. If a question will be unintelligible without mentioning such names, the Departments concerned are notified of the name (-s) and this phrase is used: ".......a certain person (name furnished)”.
