(2)(a) The Inspectorate Unit of the department is tasked with tracing persons who remain the country illegally. They conduct regular inspections of places of employment and other institutions. They also undertake tracing projects to locate persons who have overstayed in the country.

(2)(b) Such persons are either charged criminally or deported from South Africa.

(3)(a-b) The department does not allow such persons to apply for change of status in the country. Travellers who overstay the number of allocated days are declared undesirable for a period of 12 months or up to a maximum of a 5 year prohibition depending on the number of days overstayed in terms of s30(1)(h) of the Immigration Act. The determination of the sanction is derived from the Enhanced Movement Control System (EMCS).

In terms of the prohibition, a traveller cannot under any circumstances re-enter the country unless an appeal for upliftment of the sanction is considered and accepted by the department.

(3)(c) For the period 1 April 2016 – 31 March 2017 a total of 39,894 persons were declared undesirable. Due to the department only collating overstay data from 1 April 2016, it is not possible to provide a year-on-year trend analysis. For the period in question the most common reasons cited for overstaying are based on medical grounds or applicants awaiting temporary residence visa extensions.

Kwankwa, Mr NL to ask the Minister of Finance

Whether, pursuant to his statement that any recommendation about the possibility of extending or broadening the mandate of the SA Reserve Bank (SARB) should be brought to his attention in line with his mandate as the Minister of Finance and in light of the need to ensure better alignment of monetary and fiscal policy in the country as a strategy to unlock job-creating growth, the Government has considered the (a) need to broaden the mandate of the SARB to ensure that it also has a socio-economic development objective and (b) possibility of introducing a 1 percentage point tolerance interval over and above the upper band of the 3-6% inflation target in order to mitigate against central bank overreaction in times of sluggish growth or when the economy is in recession?

Reply:

a) No, there is no need to review the Constitution on the mandate of the SARB.

Sections 223-225 of the Constitution outline the primary object of the SARB, which is “to protect the value of the currency in the interest of balanced and sustainable economic growth in the Republic". Section 224 (2) requires regular consultation between the Bank and the Minister of Finance.

The current Constitution and legislation governing the SARB is therefore very broad, and does not constrain Government from adopting (and legislating) appropriate policies to facilitate inclusive growth and job-creation, achieve the objectives of the NDP, and reduce inequality and deliver basic services to all those residing in SA.

Whilst the debate on the role of the central bank is vibrant, both in South Africa and other countries, it is important that those calling for reviews provide the necessary research and motivation for proposing such reviews, including their understanding of the role of both fiscal and monetary policy, and what specific problems they are seeking to solve. The SARB’s monetary policy mandate cannot be separated from Government’s fiscal policy mandate and performance. Any attempt to amend these constitutional provisions without due regard for this relationship will generate unnecessary uncertainty, and impact negatively on growth and jobs.

b) The existing monetary policy framework, through flexible inflation targeting, allows for temporary deviations of inflation from the target in the event of shocks over which monetary policy has no impact. A specific tolerance level around the target would therefore not be necessary. An explicit tolerance indicator may potentially risk de-anchoring inflation expectations, and thereby constrain the SARB’s ability to respond flexibly to an inflation shock.

We are unable to supply individual’s names or firm’s names, as the Board determined per section 51(5) of the APA that publication would be in general terms due to the nature of these transgressions.

However, the committee ordered that should the practitioner re-apply for re-registration with the IRBA at any stage, the case will be re-enrolled for a hearing.

NW4124E

Reply:

(1) In reply to question 816 on 19 June 2017, the Department of Social Development wishes to acknowledge that the Sanitary Dignity policy is driven by the Minister of the Department of Women. It is the Lead Department and has coordinated the development of the draft Policy which is hereto attached. The Department of Social Development is part of the Task Team and participates in all the meetings convened as well as providing support in finalizing the policy, and will also be involved in the identification of indigent girls and women from our database for distribution purposes.

(2) A retreat was not hosted by the lead Department or Department of Social Development.

(3) The framework was presented at the National 'Consultation lndaba convened by the Department of Women. The National Department of Social Development was represented by the Gender Chief Directorate. The Sanitary Dignity Consultative lndaba was held on 13 July 2017 against the background of a draft policy that has been produced by Department of Women (DoW), with the help of a team of three seconded officials from the Department of Traditional Affairs.

There is also a National Inter-department Task Team {NTT) that was established in order to work as a task team that would see to the finalization of the process of policy formulation, led by DoW and comprised of the following national departments:

• Department of Women (DoW);

• Department of Social Development (DSD);

• Department of Small Business Development (DSBD);

• Department of Trade and Industry (DTI);

• Department of Finance (National Treasury);

• Department of Higher Education;

• Department of Basic Education; and

• Statistics South Africa.

Following the presentation of the Policy Framework at the lndaba, it was agreed that the Policy Framework should form part of the Department of Women's Annual Performance Plan, Strategic Plan and Operational Plan. Provinces will be expected to develop their own policies according to their unique environments but keeping to injunctions of the Framework Policy.

Moving forward, the policy will go to the Social Protection, Community and Human Development (SPCHD) Cluster Technical Working Group (TWG), SPCHD DG Cluster, Cabinet Committee on SPCHD and then to Cabinet. It will then be gazetted and further awareness of the policy and solicitation of comments and analysis of those comments will ensue. There will be a final SociowEconomic Impact Assessment (SEIAS) process which will include the costing exercise. It will go to Cabinet for the final decision and then a final gazetting will take place and that product can be shared with Parliament.

Wilson, Ms ER to ask the Minister of Social Development

(1)With reference to her reply to question 2019 on 9 October 2017, in which she gives a breakdown of the number of Mikondzo events that were held in each province, as well as the associated costs, why were 20 events held in KwaZulu-Natal and only one or two events held in the remainder of the provinces, which total to only 11 events; (2) in view of the specified reply which states that the total cost of the specified events amounted to R10 098 290 976, although the budget was only R62 500 000, (a) why did her department overspend billions of Rands on the events and (b) in which budgeted line item were these billions reflected; (3) whether any virements were necessary to pay for the overspend; if so, (a)(i) from which budgeted line item and (ii) in which programmes were the specified virements made, (b) what percentage of the specified budgeted line item was used for the virements, (c) who authorised such virements and (d) were the large virements authorised by the Treasury; (4) with reference to her specified reply in which it is stated that the budget allocation of each event was R2 500 000, but according to the actual expenditure costs the average cost of each event was R325 million, from where did she obtain the specified figures?

Reply:

1. The reply to Parliamentary Question 2019 indicated that there were 11 Mikondzo events held in KwaZulu-Natal. The areas identified for Mikondzo are informed by prevailing social ills, the level of poverty and challenges with access to social services amongst others. As a result, the provinces will not all host the same number of Mikondzo events.

2. Please note that there was an error in the attachment to Parliamentary Question 2019. The actual amount spent on Mikondzo for the financial year, was approximately R100 million, and not R10 billion. The events in Limpopo and Mpumalanga indicated that an amount of R2,5 billion was spent on these events. This should have been R2,5 million, which was in line with the budgeted amount for each event. The funding was allocated from the retained surplus.

3. No virements were necessary, as the funding was allocated from the retained surplus.

4. As indicated under response to question 2, the details in the spreadsheet in the response to question 2019 was incorrect. The budgeted amount for each event was in fact R2,5 million.
