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

Whether the Central Johannesburg Technical and Vocational Education and Training College has sufficient equipment to teach practical skills in all fields; if not, what (a) are the details of all the equipment that is in shortage and (b) plans have been put in place to address all equipment shortages; (2) Whether her department is aware of any cases where the specified college awarded students marks for the practical component of a course where no actual practical teaching took place; if not, (3) Does she have any intention of investigating whether such practices take place at the specified college; if so, what are the relevant details; (4) Whether any equipment was lost due to theft at the specified college (a) in the (i) 2015, (ii) 2016 and (iii) 2017 academic years and (b) since 1 January 2018; if so, what (aa) are the relevant details, (bb) steps have been taken to apprehend the thieves and (cc) action has been taken to replace the stolen equipment?

Reply:

1. The Central Johannesburg TVET College offers a range of business, engineering and services-related programmes. The Principal of the College has indicated that not all workshops and laboratories used for the teaching of practical skills across the various fields are fully equipped with machines, tools and relevant equipment.

a) The kitchens for the Hospitality programmes need to be refurbished as this programme was relocated to the old Wits Hotel School from the Smit Street campus as the previous building was expropriated and demolished for the Gautrain project.

The ICT infrastructure needs recapitalisation and modernisation.

The key concern for the Engineering programmes is the procurement of Learning and Teaching Support Materials (LTSM).

The Fitting and Motor Mechanic workshops require replacement of tools and machinery due to it being missing or obsolete.

b) The College included the refurbishment of the kitchens in its 2018 Strategic Plan, pending the availability of funds.

The College is in the final stages of a tender process for the recapitalisation of its ICT infrastructure. This project, once completed early in 2018, will have addressed all ICT related issues across all campuses and programmes.

The College Council recently approved that campuses may procure LTSM to a maximum of R30 000 to expedite the provision of LTSM.

Since 2016, the College has procured some tools and equipment for the Motor Mechanic workshops. Earlier this year, the Ford Motor Company donated three new vehicles to the College for teaching and learning purposes. The College is also in discussions with ABB South Africa for similar donations to its Alexandra campus.

2. The College and Department are not aware of cases where students were awarded marks for the practical component of a course where no actual practical teaching took place.

3. If more detail is provided on the incident, the Principal and Department will investigate and take appropriate action.

4. According to the Principal, who assumed office on 01 April 2016, some staff members verbally alleged that some equipment was lost/misplaced/unaccounted. To date, no evidence has been provided by these staff members.

(a) (i) Detailed information regarding allegations of lost/stolen assets are not readily available for 2015 and 2016. The Department will investigate and revert back in due course.

(ii) The Principal’s report indicates that in 2016, a staff member made allegations against a Campus Manager at the Ellis Park Campus involving two missing sofas and a lawn mower. This was investigated and evidence was provided that the sofas were being re-upholstered. The service provider would not release the sofas as there was a misunderstanding regarding the quotation. Payment was effected and the sofas were returned to the College.

The service provider who repaired the lawnmower wanted payment before releasing the machine. Payment was effected and the lawnmower was returned to the College.

The above report was provided to the complainant but he was not satisfied with the explanation. The Principal has requested the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) specialists deployed at colleges to investigate this matter. The College is still awaiting this report.

(b) The College had three incidents of armed robbery and theft of computers at the Crown Mines campus over a 12 month period.

The College also had an incident of an armed robbery at the Troyeville campus during the early hours of 6 November 2016 where approximately 150 computers were stolen.

(aa) The armed robberies apparently involved groups of 10-12 heavily armed men who overpowered the night guards and locked down the sites.

(bb) These cases were reported to the South African Police Services.

(cc) The College has revised its security arrangements and is in the process of installing updated surveillance and monitoring equipment, and improving access control. The College has also replaced all the stolen computers.

Stander, Ms T to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

(a) What is the total number of persons who have been (i) charged, (ii) prosecuted and (iii) convicted for female genital mutilation in each province (aa) in each of the past three financial years and (bb) since 1 April 2017 and (b) what are the details of the sentences handed down in each successful conviction?

Reply:

I wish to inform the Honourable Member that female genital mutilation is currently not defined in terms of the South African common or statutory law as a criminal offence.

The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development, as well as the National Prosecuting Authority therefore do not have any such charges and convictions on its statistical databases. An accused person may however, be criminally charged with an offence, for example, of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm, if female genital mutilation was inflicted. Such cases would however not be reflected separately in the statistical data bases.

The track focused on two of the key challenges facing SMME’s, namely; a lack of access to markets for SMME's and limited support for commercialisation of innovation by SMME’s. These deliberations yielded numerous outcomes with proposed delivery dates which will be driven by a task team.

De Freitas, Mr MS to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

(a) What is the total number of cases of (i) child abuse and (ii) child murder that have been recorded in each province and (b) of those cases, how many have led to successful convictions in each province in the past three financial years?

Reply:

a) (i) and (ii) The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has informed me that the NPA only records conviction rates of verdict cases on all murder prosecutions, and a further breakdown according to the types of murder as well as child abuse, is not available. NPA is therefore not able to provide the information in the detail requested.

I have further been informed that the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development`s (DoJ&CD) Integrated Case Management System (ICMS) does not at present, provide for victims details yet, and therefore the Department would not be able to specify if a criminal charge of murder is linked to a victim such as a child. Efforts are however in place to address this gap. Thus far, a data collection tool for the details of all crime victims, including children, has been drafted, and is now being taken through the stakeholder- consultation process.

The Department can therefore unfortunately not respond in respect to data on child murder charges but in the future the Department will be able to report on it from the Integrated Justice System (IJS) transversal system data.

The Honorable member is therefore advised to request this information from the South African Police Service, in terms of criminal matters.

In terms of Children’s Court-matters involving child abuse and neglect, data on matters relating to child abuse, was not collected previously (for the 2014/15 to 2016/17 financial year. With the roll-out of the Integrated Case Management System (ICMS) this year, the Department is able to provide mid-year statistics for 2017/18 as shown below.

Carter, Ms D to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

What (a) was the rationale behind the directive from her department to Umgeni Water in terms of section 74(1) of the National Water Act, Act 36 of 1998, to establish a desalination plant in the City of Cape Town, (b) were the legislative provisions she relied on when the directive was issued and (c) are the details of the progress with regard to the establishment of the desalination plant since the directive was issued?

Reply:

a) The Minister of Water and Sanitation can use the Department of Water and Sanitation and the Agencies/Entities reporting to her to be deployed in emergency situations such as a drought disaster. In the case of the Drought Disaster in the Western Cape and the City of Cape Town in particular, Umgeni Water has both the capacity and the expertise to execute an emergency desalination project and also to perform the operation and maintenance of the plan. Section 74 (1) of the National Water Act, 1998 (Act No. 36 of 1998) provides distinctively for directive relating to a power which already resides with the institution and a power which the institution does not have at all but same assigned or delegated to it by way of a directive. The directive requires that UW performs both water resource and water services functions. It is in this regard that Section 74(1) of the National Water Act, 1998 was utilized as part of the Department of Water and Sanitation intervention.

b) Considering the nature of the services (scarce resources) to be provided by Umgeni Water to another organ of state, which will fulfil the right to access to sufficient water in terms of section 27 of the Constitution Act 108 of 1997 but also foster cooperative governance as per section 41 of the Constitution. The fact that the performance of duties assigned to Umgeni Water by the Directive are not in the business plan of Umgeni Water cannot be a legal impediment to enforce the Directive. In fact the purpose of the Directive is to assign or delegate those powers that are not in the business plan or allowable in terms of section 30(1) of the Water Services Act, 1997 (Act No. 108 of 1997) to Umgeni Water.

c) Yes. Following meetings between the Mayor of the City of Cape Town (CoCT) and Minister and the request by the Mayor for assistance, Minister issued a directive to UW on 11 December 2017 to procure a 10MLD plant as an emergency intervention for CoCT for siting in the harbour.

  • Umgeni Water has concluded their procurement process and has identified a preferred service provider.
  • The City of Cape Town have however recently requested that Minister delay the implementation of the desalination option so that they can assess the ground water availability once drilling has been completed, and also to find an alternate site for the plant.
  • A number of meetings have been held during the past 10 days to deal with the following issues:
    • Finalisation of the site for the establishment of the plant;
    • Electrical supply;
    • Connector infrastructure (sea intake, brine discharge and connection to the CoCT water supply system);
    • Regulatory requirements; and
    • Off-take agreement.

(ii)The total value of services paid to various hospitality industry players through Travel with Flair was R202 826 036.

Response from the National Prosecuting Authority:

1. The NPA had a contract with Travel with Flair (TWF) during the period May 2009 to November 2011. In this regard,

(i) The NPA procured travel management services (air flights, accommodation, car rental and shuttle services)

(ii) The total amount paid to TWF during the contract period was R 78 375 960.52, detailed as follows:

R 34 915 174,72 – 2009/10 financial year;

R 27 517 371.09 – 2010/11 financial year;

R 15 943 414,71 – 2011/12 financial year

2. The Service Level Agreement entered into with TWF included services related to international travel.

 (i) The total amounts paid to TWF during the contract period for international travel on behalf of NPA officials amounts to R 5 323 373.65, detailed as follows:

R 2 577 591,87 – 2009/10 financial year;

R 1 499 002.88 – 2010/11 financial year;

R 1 246 778.90 – 2011/12 financial year

I have been informed by the National Prosecuting Authority that due to the fact that the contract expired more than five (5) years ago, the level of detailed breakdown required in the question would require an extended effort and time to find in the archived records.

Response from the Office of the Chief Justice

The Office of the Chief Justice did not procure any services from Travel With Flair (Pty) Ltd, therefore, the above questions are not applicable in this regard.

Profile picture: Stander, Ms T

Stander, Ms T to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

(a) What is the total number of persons who have been (i) charged, (ii) prosecuted and (iii) convicted in terms of the Prevention and Combating of Trafficking in Persons Act, Act 7 of 2013 in each province and (b) what are the details of the sentences handed down in each successful conviction?

Reply:

(a)(i)(ii)(iii) and (b)

To give effect to South Africa’s obligation to the UN Protocol on Trafficking in Persons, the Prevention and Combating of Trafficking Act 2013 (Act No. 7 of 2013) was passed in July 2013. The Act seeks to fulfil four main objectives, namely to:

  1. Provide for an offence of Trafficking in Persons (TIP) and other offences associated with trafficking in persons;
  2. Prevent and combat TIP within and across the borders of the Republic;
  3. Provide for measures to protect and assist victims of TIP; and
  4. Provide for the establishment of the Inter-sectoral Committee on Prevention and Combating of TIP.

The Prevention and Combatting of Trafficking in Persons Act came into operation in August 2015. Prior to the enactment of Act, trafficking in persons for sexual purposes was criminalised through other pieces of legislation such as the Sexual Offences Act and trafficking in children through the Children’s Act.

For ease of reference and in order to provide a more detailed response, below is a schedule with a summary of cases dealt with under section 4(1) of the Prevention and Combating of Trafficking in Persons Act, 2013 (Act No. 7 of 2013).

         

Prevention and Combatting of Trafficking in Persons Act, 7 of 2013.

What (a) plans has her department put in place in respect of the augmentation of existing and the development of new bulk water infrastructure to mitigate the effects of climate change on the provision of bulk water in the Western Cape Province and (b) is the status of the (i) plans and (ii) financing thereof?

Reply:

(a) My Department is working on the implementation of the Berg River-Voelvlei Augmentation Scheme (BRVAS). This project augments the Western Cape Water Supply System that serves the Cape Town Metropolitan and surrounding smaller urban areas as well as irrigators in the area. In addition to the BRVAS project, various surface water schemes (e.g. the Michell’s Pass Diversion, Further Phases of the Vloevlei Dam Augmentation, Upper Wit River Diversion, Molenaars River Diversion and the Raising of the Lower Steenbras Dam) are at various stages of investigation for further augmentation of the system in the medium- to long-term.

(b)(i) Planning work for the BRVAS project has been concluded and environmental authorisation is expected by May 2018, if there are no snags with appeal process. However, considering the severe drought situation prevailing in the region, I have whilst awaiting the approval or finalization of the environmental authorization appointed the Trans-Caledon Tunnel Authority (TCTA) to secure funding and implement the project on a fast-track basis. The TCTA is currently engaging the City of Cape Town and other potential users of the water to finalize off-take agreements.

(b)(ii) The TCTA is currently engaging the National Treasury to obtain approval on a funding mechanism and the required guarantees.

The outreach programmes were held in various districts and wards throughout the country which form part of the 1 300 poor wards that experience undue hardships in a form of drought or other natural disasters. The outreach programmes were spread throughout the financial year.

Profile picture: Carter, Ms D

Carter, Ms D to ask the Minister of Transport

In view of the proposed 71,43% increase of the vehicle licensing transaction fee determined in terms of the Road Traffic Management Corporation Act, Act 20 of 1999, read with its Regulations, (a) what has he found to be the rationale for the unacceptable increase and (b) is he prepared to review this determination in light of the public outcry and representations that have been directed to him?

Reply:

a) The transaction fees were introduced in 2007 by the Minister of Finance concurring with a proposal by the Minister of Transport. The Minister of Finance approved and or indicated a fee structure that provided for a 5-year period ending March 2012 which was to be implemented as follows:

  • for the years 2007/08 the transaction fee would have been R30.00,
  • for the years 2008/09 -2009/10 R36.00; and
  • for the financial years 2010/11 – 2011/12 R42.00.

In 2009, the fee amount, as per the provisions of Section 48 of the Road Traffic Management Corporation Act, 1999 (Act No: 20 of 1999) (the “Act”) read with the Regulations was increased to a fee of R36.00 and brought into effect by publication by the First Amendment of the Regulations in the Government Gazette No. R. 930 on 23 September 2009. The significance of the regulation amendment, was that the Regulations was amended to provide that the Minister of Transport, may henceforth, increase the Transaction Fee amount annually by Notice in the Government Gazette.

Due to various operational and administrative reasons, the transaction fees were not increased in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. In February 2016 the fee amount was increased by R6 to R42, the same amount it should have been in 2010.

Therefore, over a period the Transactions Fees have not been optimally increased to keep abreast with the ever-rising costs associated with operations and personnel. The R30 increase in 2018, which brings the fees R72, is thus mainly informed by the already approved R6 per annum increase and in fact is less than what it would have been if the increase of R6 per annum was diligently implemented. If the increases had been diligently implemented annually, the fees would have been R96 in 2018

(b) There were no public representation received.

Nolutshungu, Ms N to ask the Minister of Transport

Whether the SA National Roads Agency has enough funds to finance the N2 Wild Coast toll road; if not, why has the work began; if so, (a) what is the total amount of funds that is available and (b) what are the relevant details of the sources of the specified funding?

Reply:

SANRAL already has a full allocation for the construction of the Mtentu and Msikaba mega-bridges, which are currently under construction and on tender respectively. SANRAL has also allocated sufficient funds for the construction of access roads, referred to as haul roads, to provide access to the bridge sites. SANRAL has over the past few years improved the brownfields section of the N2 between uMthatha and Port St Johns through its budget allocations. In addition, SANRAL has also allocated funds for community development projects that are intended to benefit communities along the N2 route alignment in the Wild Coast area.

Finally, as of 2017/18 Government has allocated funding for the construction of the greenfields section of the N2 from Port St Johns to Port Edward (see table below). This demonstrates Government’s commitment to the successful delivery of this important project in the Eastern Cape. The Minister of Transport will soon table the proposed toll model for the operations and maintenance of the N2 Wild Coast to Cabinet.

b) The nature of businesses registered on the business register is varied. The attached list of companies on the Skills Development and Empowerment Business Support Unit Register shows what the nature of each of the businesses is.

c) The submitted reports have captured the Province of each business location but has not yet lifted the actual town in the province. It is important to show that most business submissions in the year of reporting have been from Gauteng province. This has arisen out of the proximity of the National office to access for military veterans in Gauteng. Going forward, the data set for collection will be expanded to give the details for the towns of business locations. Further, with the presence of provincial coordinators in provinces, it is envisaged that details for military veterans businesses in provinces other than Gauteng will also be submitted.

Profile picture: Lekota, Mr M

Lekota, Mr M to ask the Minister of Telecommunications and Postal Services

What (a) are the actions, inactions and conduct of the SA Social Security Agency (SASSA) that formed the basis of the request by the Chief Executive Officer of the SA Post Office for the intervention of the Director-General (DG) of the Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) into the process for the implementation of the payments of grants and (b) action has been taken to encourage SASSA’s cooperation?

Reply:

I have been informed by SA Post Office as follows:

a) There were some disagreements on the implementation of the Services Agreement that was signed on 08 December 2017. SAPO required sign-offs in line with the agreed Service Agreement timelines but they were being delayed by SASSA. This was flagged on numerous occasions but still there were no formal sign-offs provided. Only verbal commitments were made which somewhat compromised the governance protocol. In addition, SAPO learnt of the appointment of the work streams to provide technical advice to SASSA. The introduction of this team posed a risk in that the already agreed but not yet signed-off specifications could be changed and therefore delays the implementation process. It was on this basis that SAPO requested the intervention of the DPME DG raising early warning signals about the potential delays that are caused by factors outside of SAPO’s control.

b) The DG of the DPME mediated on the matter between both CEOs supported by the DG of the Department of Telecommunications and Postal Services (DTPS) and contingencies were initiated by SAPO and agreed with SASSA to mitigate any possible delays. In addition, ongoing communications and regular meetings are held through steering committees and focus Area groups. SAPO has since assured that all issues that were outstanding have been adequately mitigated upon and the project is now on track.

1. (a) In the past five years, the Department of Social Development procured goods and services, which were processed in thousands of transactions. The goods and services are classified according to Standard Chart of Account based on their nature as well their type and the expenditure for goods and services is disclosed in the Annual Financial Statements and Annual report tabled in Parliament every year.

Goods and services are procured using the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act and Regulations. The Regulations prescribe the preference points that can be claimed in accordance with the BEE status level of the supplier.

With effect from 1 April 2016, National Treasury implemented an online central supplier database (CSD) where all suppliers and service providers registered and captured their details including their BBBEE status level etc. It has made it compulsory for government entities to use only suppliers registered on this database. The CSD maintains data on expenditure categories and supplier information. All suppliers’ details can be found on National Treasury supplier database (CSD).

2. (a) The goods and services referred to office accommodation, security, cleaning services, stationery, furniture and office equipment, professional services, catering and promotional material etc.

(b) The amount paid to suppliers and service provider depend on the size, nature and type of goods and services procured.

3. (a) The Department of Social Development, has been sourcing goods and services in terms of PPPFA Act No 5 of 2000. The Act provides the Preferential scoring model where all suppliers and services providers who submit their bid proposals were scored and evaluated against the said prescripts, and the award is made to the bidder who scores high preferential points for BBBEE and price.

(b) The Department of Social Development procured goods and services in line with the requirements of PPPFA Act where the BBBEE status of every bidder is considered in the preferential scoring model and as such suppliers were awarded accordingly.

(c) The amounts paid to suppliers and service providers depend on the size, nature and type of goods and services procured.

1. (b) The goods and services procured in the past five years, runs in thousands of transactions. The goods and services are classified according to Standard Chart of Account based on their nature and type. Such expenditure is disclosed in the Annual Financial Statements and Annual report tabled in Parliament every year. Before April 2016, the Agency utilised Historically Disadvantages Individual (HDI) which was the procurement requirements at the time in the application and compliance to PPPFA and BEE. From 01 April 2016, National Treasury established an online central supplier database (CSD) where all suppliers and service providers registered and captured their details including their BBBEE status level etc. SASSA sourced goods and services from suppliers and service providers registered on CSD. All suppliers’ details can be found on National Treasury supplier database (CSD).

2. (a) The goods and services referred in the above paragraph amongst others would be office accommodation, security, cleaning services, stationery, furniture and office equipment, professional services, etc.

(b) The amount paid to suppliers and service provider vary depending on the size, nature and type of goods and services procured.

3. (a) SASSA, like any other government institutions, has been sourcing goods and services in terms of PPPFA Act No 5 of 2000. The Act provides the Preferential scoring model where all suppliers and services providers who submit their bid proposals were scored and evaluated against the said prescripts, and the award is made to the bidder who scores high preferential points for BBBEE and price. Goods and services are procured using the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act and Regulations. The Regulations prescribe the preference points that can be claimed in accordance with the BEE status level of the supplier. This approach is a scorecard approach rather than purely an ownership approach.

(b) All the goods and services procured by the Agency are procured in line with the requirements of PPPFA Act where the BBBEE status of every bidder is considered in the preferential scoring model and as such suppliers were awarded accordingly. The contracts range from cleaning, security etc.

(c) The amount paid to suppliers and service provider vary depending on the size, nature and type of goods and services procured.

Profile picture: Groenewald, Mr HB

Groenewald, Mr HB to ask the Minister of Police

(a) What are the names of the stations that have been excluded from the proposed Firearm Amnesty, (b) in which provinces are the specified stations and (c) why were the stations excluded?

Reply:

(a) The following three police stations are excluded from the proposed firearms amnesty.

  • Isipingo.
  • Bellville South.
  • Kanyamazane.

(b) These police stations are situated in the following provinces respectively:

  • Isipingo KwaZulu-Natal.
  • Bellville South Western Cape.
  • Kanyamazane Mpumalanga.

(c) These police stations have been selected, based on the following reasons:

Firstly, the following number of firearms have been reported lost/stolen from the Exhibit Management Stores (SAPS 13 Stores) of the respective police stations, during the period 1 April 2016 to 31 October 2017:

Isipingo Police Station - 31firearms.

Bellville South Police Station - 18 firearms.

Kanyamazane Police Station - three firearms.

The reported losses/theft of firearms from the SAPS 13 Stores at these police stations have been tabled as a high risk.

Secondly, the criminal investigations pertaining to the losses/theft of firearms at these SAPS 13 Stores, are still pending and the conclusion thereof needs to be examined, in order to implement preventative measures.

Thirdly, it is in the interest of the firearms amnesty that there must not be any doubt with persons, who wish to participate in the surrendering of firearms during the amnesty period, that such firearms will not be safely kept in the SAPS 13 Stores at police stations.

Fourthly, allowing firearms to be surrendered at the above identified three police stations, may negatively influence the firearms amnesty, which may have a detrimental effect on the success of the amnesty.

It is still the ultimate view and wish of the South African Police Service that the above three police stations must not be excluded from the firearms amnesty but that additional safety measures be implemented at these police stations by the respective provincial commissioners and that an extreme tightened monitoring and auditing system be adopted at these police stations such as daily inspections from the office of the Cluster Commander.

Reply:

1a) The requirements for an appointment or promotion in the South African Police Service (SAPS) are uniform and are contained in Policies or National Instructions. No other specific educational qualifications are prescribed for an appointment as a station commander. In respect of the levels below the Senior Management Service, the requirements are, inter alia; at least a National Qualifications Framework (NQF) 4 (level of Grade 12) qualification, with four years service in a particular rank or a NQF 6 (Degree/Diploma) qualification with two years service in a particular rank. In respect of the Senior Management Service, the requirements are, inter alia; a NQF 6 qualification (Degree/Diploma) with at least three years experience in a particular rank.

1b) With regard to the mandatory on-the-job training which is offered to station commanders, there are mandatory station lectures that are to be conducted in the station environment, which are monitored at station, cluster and provincial level. In the Human Resource Development environment, as part of formal training, the Station Management Learning Programme is offered to station commanders, which is a formal station management training programme presented at SAPS Academy, Paarl. As part of this learning programme, learners also conduct practical service delivery inspections at selected stations, on which they are evaluated.

(a) Which of the 52 countries of the Commonwealth require South Africans to apply for a visa on entry, (b) what are the reasons of a lack of visa reciprocity, if any and (c) what actions are being taken to address this?

Reply:

a) Out of 52 Commonwealth countries, 22 countries require of South African diplomatic and official passport holders to apply for visas. These countries are: Cameroon, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Canada, Dominica, Trinidad and Tobago, Cyprus, Malta, Australia, Kiribati, Nauru, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. In so far as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is concerned, diplomatic passport holders do not require visas, but official passport holders do require visas.

Ordinary South African passport holders require visas to travel to the following Commonwealth countries: Cameroon, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Canada, Cyprus, Malta, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Australia, Kiribati, Nauru, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Tuvalu.

b) In respect of all the countries which require of South African passport holders to be in possession of visas, South Africa reciprocates by requiring visas from their citizens as well, with the exception of Australia, Canada and ordinary passport holders of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. All Australian and Canadian passport holders are exempt from visa requirements, but diplomatic and official passport holders of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland require visas to enter South Africa. Australian, Canadian and United Kingdom passport holders were granted exemption from visa requirements by means of a Cabinet decision dated 4 February 1993. When the authorities of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland imposed visa requirements on all South African passport holders, South Africa reciprocated by imposing visa requirements on that country’s diplomatic and official passport holders. South Africa was later granted a visa exemption for diplomatic passport holders. However, South Africa did not reciprocate by granting the same privileges to British diplomatic passport holders.

c) Former Home Affairs Minister, Mr M K N Gigba, MP, established an inter-departmental task team, with the Department of Home Affairs as the lead department, to review all visa agreements, with a reciprocity approach to be the main objective.
