(b) Outcomes of the meeting:

OUTCOME 1: IDENTIFICATION OF GAPS AND AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION

In relation to the expected outcome of identification of gaps and areas of improvement in entrepreneurship education, it was reflected that the approach to entrepreneurship education can be broadly categorized into two major approaches, the first being “education for entrepreneurship” and secondly “education about entrepreneurship”. The former has a practical focus on entrepreneurship education and the goal is to equip the learner with entrepreneurial skills. The latter focuses on the theoretical aspect of entrepreneurship education and its goal is to provide the student with knowledge pertaining to the various schools of thought around entrepreneurship. The gap that was identified is that the bulk of higher education learning around entrepreneurship has mainly focused on the theoretical approach which is education about entrepreneurship without necessarily equipping the leaner with practical skills that are required for entrepreneurship. Therefore there is a need to further engage institutions of learning on how the two approaches to entrepreneurship education can be brought into alignment with the country’s priority to train and develop an increasing number of entrepreneurs and to improve the skills base of existing entrepreneurs for business sustainability. Consideration will be given on the approach as the discourse around embedding entrepreneurship education into curricular continues.

OUTCOME 2: A PLAN ON HOW DSBD CAN COLLABORATE WITH ACADEMIA, GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS AND DEVELOPMENT FINANCE INSTITUTIONS TO ENSURE THE DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP

The second outcome speaks to the outlining of a plan on how the DSBD can collaborate with academia, government departments and Development Finance Institutions to ensure the development and growth of entrepreneurship. It emerged from the discussions that there were already efforts that had been taking place between various institutions and different sections of the public sector. It was established that because these efforts were fragmented and the impact thereof has been limited and minimal. A need for greater collaboration between all the stakeholders was identified. Going forward, it was determined that DSBD would have further engagements with higher education institutions and other government departments as a step towards coordination and collaboration. An invitation from DHET to DSBD was extended to attend their upcoming workshop on entrepreneurship education. This received a positive response from DSBD as DHET has already established a network of stakeholders around entrepreneurship education. It was generally agreed that stakeholders would share information on any new and ongoing programmes with regard to entrepreneurship education.

OUTCOME 3: THE ROLE OF DEVELOPMENT FINANCE INSTITUTIONS (DFIS)

The third outcome was concerning the role of Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) in entrepreneurship education. It was highlighted that efforts to promote entrepreneurship within institutions of higher learning often lacked the necessary financial resources which is an inhibiting factor for entrepreneurship education. It was suggested that there is a need to get commitment from various institutions to provide some type of financial investment towards entrepreneurship education. Therefore, the final plan on how the Department will collaborate will be drafted once existing collaborations have been determined in order to avoid duplication.

OUTCOME 4: GENERATION OF A DEPARTMENTAL-INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION RESEARCH PROTOCOL AND FRAMEWORK THAT WILL KEEP GOVERNMENT ABREAST OF THE IMPACT OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF SMALL ENTERPRISES.

The fourth outcome was in respect of generating a Departmental-Institutions of Higher Education research protocol and framework that will keep government abreast of the impact of entrepreneurship education on the development of small enterprises. It was reiterated that the promotion of research within entrepreneurship should be prioritised and that the already existing body of knowledge should be shared with the Department. It was discussed that some institutions made deliberate efforts towards updating research methodologies and strategies and therefore a connection between the Department and them would be of great benefit.

OUTCOME 5: DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH-LEVEL FRAMEWORK WITHIN WHICH MULTI-STAKEHOLDER SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT SUPPORT PARTNERSHIPS WILL BE ESTABLISHED WITHIN INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION TO ENSURE THE COMMERCIALISATION OF INNOVATIVE IDEAS AND PROVISION OF INTEGRATED SUPPORT SERVICES (CO-LOCATION)

The fifth outcome spoke of the development of a high-level framework within which multi-stakeholder small business development support partnerships will be established within institutions of higher education to ensure the commercialisation of innovative ideas and provision of integrated support services (co-location). It was discussed that some institutions were already implementing such arrangements particularly with SEDA, lessons on best practice around co-location would be shared among the stakeholders.

(c) Feedback that influenced policy direction on the Department

One of the main emerging points from the roundtable discussion was a need for the Department to be more intentional in its collaboration with institutions of higher learning regarding the promotion of entrepreneurship. The DSBD has an approved research agenda in place that reflects its thematic and priority areas of research around small, medium micro enterprises and cooperatives. A draft research plan has been formulated for the financial year 2018/2019. The Department is engaging higher education institutions with a view to entering into partnerships around research on SMMES and cooperatives.

In this regard, the Department intends utilising post-graduate students that are engaged in research commensurate with the thematic areas of the approved DSBD research agenda. Moreover the proposed partnership/s will allow the DSBD to conduct research in a cost effective manner and afford post-graduate students access to data and respondents for successful implementation and completion of research projects.

To date the Department has engaged with several academic institutions with the aim of forming research partnerships. The response from the academic institutions has been positive however at this stage formal Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) are yet to be finalised. The latest of these engagements was on 01 June 2018, wherein the Minister addressed the South African Commerce Deans Association of all South African Universities at the Turfloop University, in Limpopo. The Minister addressed some of the issues raised in the October 2017 Colloquium with the Deans at this engagement, to which the Deans noted the input and later agreed among themselves to set up a team to follow up and implement some of these proposals.

The Department received a memorandum from the unions requesting intervention to resolve the protracted strike. The memorandum is being responded to.

12. University of South Africa

Pretoria Campus
14 - 16 February 2018:

Registration disrupted.

Pietermaritzburg Campus 17 - 24 January 2018: Registration disrupted.

Late payment of NSFAS allowances.

Wage negotiations

None.

13. Tshwane University of Technology

29 January 2018 and
8 February 2018:

Soshanguve Campus
closed.

Four residences were still under renovation, and as a result, a number of first-year students could not be allocated accommodation. Students demanded that the affected students should be provided with alternative accommodation.

None

It should be noted that the Department monitors the stability of the sector during the registration period by requesting regular reports from institutions. However, in the majority of cases, the oversight role of the Department does not extend to intervention, unless there is a specific request from an institution, or unless the Department decides that a fact-finding visit is necessary. The Department is usually informed of the disruption and monitors the situation, engaging with the Vice Chancellor where necessary. In cases where disruptions were linked to NSFAS issues, the Department engaged with NSFAS, students and institutions to assist in resolving the challenge. Major challenges experienced relate to the system integration between NSFAS and institutions, which has had a significant impact on the exchange of registration data. The focus has been to ensure that students who qualify receive allowances and that the agreements are generated and signed.

Profile picture: Marais, Mr S

Marais, Mr S to ask the Minister of Defence and Military Veterans

(1)With reference to reports on 7 May 2018 (details furnished), how does the dilapidation of the SA Army Special Infantry Capability (SAASIC) unit impact on the defence abilities of the SA National Defence Force (SANDF), taking into account that the objectives of the SAASIC are to contribute to land border patrol and safeguarding our borders; (2) whether she has found that the SANDF breached the memorandum of understanding that was signed with the National Council of the Societies for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in 2013 and 2016; if not, what are the reasons that animals were allegedly subjected to severe neglect by the commander of the SAASIC base; if so, (3) whether an investigation has been commissioned into the allegations of maltreatment and negligence of the care of the horses; if not, why not; (4) whether any disciplinary steps have been taken against (a) the base commander and/or (b) any other SANDF member; if not, in each case, why not; if so, what disciplinary steps have been taken against the unit commander and other implicated staff members?

Reply:

1. The alleged dilapidation of the SAASIC Unit does not have any adverse impact on the Landward Defence of the Republic of South Africa as a total of 208 horses are currently maintained by SAASIC and only 40 horses are employed in Operation CORONA (Border Safeguarding) in the Musina vicinity (Limpopo Province). A portion of the rest of the horses at SAASIC is used for training purposes and a further platoon of horses (circa 40 horses) has been identified to relieve the horses currently on the border.

2. There is currently no proof that the Memorandum of Understanding between the SANDF and the NSPCA has been breached, by either party. The reason(s) for the alleged neglect is the subject of an investigation, recently concluded.

3. Positive. A Board of Inquiry was constituted and has concluded its investigation.

4. The Board of Inquiry was recently concluded and its findings and recommendations are under review. Disciplinary steps – if any – against (any) individual(s) will be taken if so warranted after the review.

Kalyan, Ms SV to ask the Minister of Public Enterprises

Whether complaints about certain persons namely Mr Bagus and Ms Kellerman, and also about the appointment of a certain company namely Scarlet Sky Investments were lodged with the Public Protector by a certain person namely Mr Duncan Korabie, and later withdrawn; if so, (2) whether one of the specified persons namely Ms Kellerman was thereafter appointed to do an internal investigation into the affairs of Alexkor; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what was the outcome? NW1298E

Reply:

REPONSE BASED ON INFORMATION RECEIVED FROM ALEXKOR SOC LIMITED:

(1)

Alexkor were informed by Mr Korabie about the complaint he lodged to the Office of the Public Protector during 2015.

The complaint was withdrawn by Mr Korabie subsequent to a meeting between DPE and the Alexkor-CPA during November 2015, to allow the Department to investigate the matter internally. The investigation was done by the ARC Committee of the PSJV and the outcomes have been communicated with the Department.

 

(2)

Alexkor is not aware that Ms Kellerman was appointed to investigate the internal matters of Alexkor SOC. However, Ms Kellerman, as Chief Legal Officer at the time was instructed by the then Board of Directors to institute the forensic investigation into allegations made against the then CEO, Mr Percy Khoza. SizweNtsalubaGobodo (SNG) was appointed as an independent entity to conduct the said forensic investigation.

The technical nature of the irregularities were such that it was not obvious to the current Board whether it was appropriate, or not, to initiate any disciplinary action against the CEO. The Board subsequently commissioned Mkhabele Huntley Adekeye Inc. (MHA) to evaluate the SNG report in terms of the possible disciplinary actions available to Alexkor.

The finding of Mkhabele Huntley Adekeye Inc was that the CEO took “a cavalier approach to financial management of the entity, which exposes the entity to risk”. The report continues that: “based on the evidence before us, we are of the view that the Accounting Authority has reasonable prospects of securing a dismissal at arbitration”. The Board considered the Mkhabele Huntley Adekeye Inc reports and decided that a “reasonable” prospect of a successful dismissal was insufficient to warrant further action. Furthermore, the Company had embarked on a restructuring process during which the CEO put himself forward for voluntary retrenchment, which offer the Board accepted, as a simpler and more cost-effective option to disciplinary action.

Ntlangwini, Ms EN to ask the Minister of Public Enterprises

(1) With reference to the hearings hosted by the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) for the coal independent power producer (IPP) generation licence applications, where Eskom indicated that it did not support the coal IPPs and warned of the harm that the coal IPPs would cause for Eskom (details furnished), (a) does Eskom intend to sign the power purchase agreements with the coal IPPs; if not, at what stage will the specified requirements be assessed; if so, (2) has Eskom ensured that the Regulation 9 requirements of the New Generation Regulations, 2011, have been met, including that the power purchase agreements would be value for money; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

According to the information received from Eskom

(1)

Eskom understands that all future IPP programmes are on hold until such time as the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) has been concluded.

(1)(a)

Eskom is obliged to implement Government Policy. Should Government instruct Eskom to continue with this programme Eskom will engage on the impact on Eskom and its requirements for the programme.

(2)

Eskom has not agreed to sign the IPP contracts and therefore the Regulation 9 requirements were not assessed by Eskom.

Should Government instruct Eskom to continue with this IPP programme, Eskom will then assess the Power Purchase Agreements against the Regulation 9 requirements of the New Generation Regulations 2011. A matter which requires further clarity and certainty is what constitutes a correct technical risk transfer to the new coal IPP in terms of Regulation 9 of the New Generation Regulations, 2011. 

The full regulation document is attached.

Who nominated (a) (i) Mrs H B Matseke, (ii) Mr T Haasbroek, (iii) Ms McMaster and (iv) Mr T Matona for their positions as board members of the Alexkor SOC Ltd. Board and (b) Mr V Bansi for Acting Chief Executive Officer of Alexkor? NW 1296E

Reply:

(a) (i), (ii), and (iv) In terms of the Board appointment process, names of potential candidates for the database may be submitted through various means, including:

  1. Submission by the individual of his or her Curriculum Vitae;
  2. Nomination by another person; or
  3. Application or nomination to the annual advertisement to update the database.

From the records it would appear that there are no specific nominations by another person of Mrs Matseke (Chairperson) and Messrs Haasbroek, Matona and Bansi, respectively. These names came through the Ministry during the Board review process. They were appointed as Non-executive Directors (NEDs) of the Board of Alexkor by former Minister of Public Enterprises, Ms Lynne Brown, at a Special General Meeting held on 14 August 2015. The appointments (with the exception of Ms McMaster who was never appointed as a Director to the Alexkor Board), were done in accordance with clause 13.2 of the Alexkor Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI) which provides that the Shareholder (the Minister of Public Enterprises) shall appoint the Directors of the Company, as well as in accordance with terms 13.11 of the Alexkor MOI which provides for the rotation of Directors and the filling of vacancies on the Alexkor Board.

The appointments were done in accordance with clause 13.2 of the Alexkor Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI) which provides that the Shareholder (the Minister of Public Enterprises) shall appoint the Directors of the Company from time to time and in so doing shall endeavour to ensure that the Board shall be appropriately balanced in terms of executive and non-executive Directors, with the majority being non-executive, and shall be representative of gender and race demographics, on the grounds of their collective knowledge, experience and appropriate skills.

Reply:

This response is according to information received from the SOC:

(1)(a)(i) As per invoices received "Transaction Fees".

(1)(a)(ii) According to Regiments these payments were made for services rendered during the structuring of the transaction. It was found by

the TSDBF that no such fees were payable separately from the fee and cost structure agreed in the original investment management

mandate agreement and as such not allowed.

(1)(a)(iii) R 228millon.

(1)(b) The TSDBF Board of Trustees appointed Regiments Capital in terms of a detailed duly legal and approved investment agreement.

No blank mandate was given (supporting documents attached).

(2) The decision of the Trustees was in terms of the authority vested in terms of the Rules of the TSDBF.

(3) The decision of the Board of Trustees was not ultra vires but in terms of the authority vested in The Rules of the Fund.

(a) What are the details of his plan to deal with the problems regarding the coal independent power producers (IPPs) for Eskom, in particular the fact that Eskom (i) will have to close certain of its own coal plants early to meet the offtake requirements of the coal IPPs, and even earlier in a low greenhouse gas emission scenario and (ii) will be faced with having to sell electricity at very high prices in circumstances where more and more electricity consumers are defecting from the grid and (b) what steps does he intend to take to mitigate the impact on Eskom?

Reply:

According to the information received from Eskom

BACKGROUND

Eskom has not approved the signing of the coal independent power producers (IPPs) agreements. No approval nor instruction has been given by the Department of Public Enterprises to Eskom to sign such agreements.

Eskom understands that all future IPP programmes are on hold until such time as the Integrate Resource Plan (IRP) has been concluded. Eskom provided these IPPs with budget quotations for connection to the grid as is required by the Eskom transmission license, but has made no other allowances for these IPPs in the Eskom production plans and price applications.

(a)(i)(ii)

The impact of new capacity as well as the low greenhouse gas emissions scenario on the electricity system and the Eskom generators must be considered in the development of the IRP. The IRP also considers price impacts.

Eskom will provide comments on the IRP when it is given the opportunity to do so, and any impact on Eskom’s generators, costs and prices to consumers will be addressed in these comments.

(b)

Government together with Eskom and other key stakeholders are in the process of evaluating the socio-economic costs of decommissioning of mines that have reached their end of life. A transitional plan will be developed that will support the integrated Resources Plan (IRP).

With reference to the annual reports of Alexkor which indicate that the specified company incurred expenditure amounting to R225 406 938.00 in the 2012-2017 financial years, what value has the company gained by this expenditure?

Reply:

 

The response is based on information received from Alexkor SOC Limited.

The breakdown of the expenditure incurred for Alexkor’s Corporate Head Office amounting to R225 406 938.00 during the period 01 April 2012 to 31 March 2017 is detailed in the table below:

 

SPEND CATEGORY:

R    1 687 360

The amounts include Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives as well as bursaries awarded to learners in the field of mining, geology and environmental management

2. Corporate Costs

R   47 442 391

Salaries of employees and head office operational costs

3. Mining Operations

R   14 846 968

4. Town Maintenance

R   85 988 049

The DoS directed that once the township had been established, the municipal engineering services are to be upgraded and Alexkor is to hand over the municipal services to the Alexander Bay Municipality; however, that has not yet occurred. Alexkor has assumed the responsibilities to maintain the Township of Alexander Bay as if they are a municipality.

5. Discontinued Operations and Other

The discontinued operating cost of R9.7 million relates to the cost of transferring the farming operations to  the community.

What was the process by which Mervyn Carstens was selected to take up the Alexkor Pooling and Sharing Joint Venture CEO position, specify (a) when the post was advertised, (b) who were the other candidates who applied, (c) who were the other candidates shortlisted or interviewed, (d) who was on the selection panel, and (e) what relevant qualifications Mr Carstens possesses?

Reply:

The response is based on information received from Alexkor SOC Limited.

According to Alexkor, Mr Carstens was appointed by the Board of Alexkor/PSJV following a recruitment process for the position in question. The process was as per the PSJV recruitment and selection process.

(a)

The position was advertised in the Sunday Times on Sunday, 27 May 2012.

(b)

The names of the candidates whom applied for this position have been disclosed to the Department. However, due to the confidential nature of this information, no further details will be disclosed.

(c)

The names of the candidates shortlisted or interviewed have been disclosed to the Department. However, due to the confidential nature of this information, no further details will be disclosed.

(d)

(i)

Mr Reginald Muzariri

Chairperson (at the time)

 

(ii)

Dr Roger Paul

Member of the Board (at the time)

 

(iii)

Prof Viola Makin

Member of the Board (at the time)

 

(iv)

Mr Craig Matthews

Representing the RMC

 

(v)

Mr Willem Diergaardt

Representing the RMC

 

(vi)

Mr Melvin Duckitt

HR Manager (at the time)

   

(e)

According to Alexkor, Mr Carstens’ qualifications:

 

(i)

National Diploma : Human Resources (Vaal University of Technology)

 

(ii)

Industrial Relations Development Programme (University of Stellenbosch).

 

(iii)

The Member is reminded that the decision to appoint would jointly have been taken between Alexkor and the Richtersveld Mining Company (RMC) representatives on the Alexkor PSJV Board.

The Board members who appointed Mr Carstens no longer serves on the Alexkor PSJV Board. The names for the selection panel are detailed in (d)(i) to (vi) above.

Therefore, the current Alexkor PSJV Board is limited in terms of its understanding of the process that led to the appointment of Mr Carstens, which at face value seems to be a deviation from the qualification requirements of the position as advertised. However, the current Alexkor PSJV Board can confirm that Mr Carstens has acquitted himself in line with their expectations in running the PSJV operations. The 30 years’ experience that Mr Carstens has garnered in the industry seems to have stood him well.

Minister: The Department is currently reviewing both the governance and operating model of Alexkor.

(1)Whether his department’s victim-offender dialogue programme is a prerequisite for parole applications to be considered; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, how much weight is given to the victim-offender dialogues when parole applications are considered; (2) what number of (a) further profile dates decisions did he take recommending that a victim-offender dialogue be completed (i) in each of the past six calendar years and (ii) since 1 January 2018, (b) parole applications for persons serving (i) life sentences and (ii) other sentences were granted without a victim-offender dialogue in each year and (c)(i) his department’s officials and (ii) other organisation were available in each management area in each of the specified years to facilitate victim-offender dialogues?

Reply:

1.Victim-offender-dialogue programme is not a prerequisite for consideration of offenders on parole. However it is a crucial element in the rehabilitation process to ensure effective social reintegration with more involvement by victims, families and communities.

(2) (a)(i)(ii) (b)(i)(ii)

The current Admission and Release System (A&R) is outdated and the Department of Correctional Services is developing and piloting an Integrated Inmate Management System (IIMS) that will replace the A & R System. This will, amongst others, enable the DCS to manage the admission and release of offenders in an integrated manner. The A & R System was not configured to reflect the requested information and it is therefore unfortunately not readily available.

(2) (c)(i)(ii)

The department has always used its professionals Social Workers, Psychologist Chaplains and even the external partners to facilitate the Victim-Offender Dialogue (VOD) anytime it is required. VOD forums have been established in management areas to facilitate these VODs. Lastly Social Auxiliary Workers have been contracted from 2015 to assist in the implementation of Restorative Justice (VOM/VOD).

(1)What number of times did the parole boards of each management area meet (a) in each of the past six calendar years and (b) since 1 January 2018; (2) what number of parole applications of persons serving (a) life sentences and (b) other sentences were denied in each management area in each specified calendar year due to (i) files that were not properly compiled by the relevant Case Management Committee, (ii) programmes required by the Correctional Supervision Plan that were not completed in time and/or (iii) reports that expired before the parole boards could consider them; (3) what number of (a) cases were instituted against his department in each management area for delays in the processing of parole applications in each specified calendar year and (b) prisoners were represented in each case? NW2225E

Reply:

(1) Parole Boards have been appointed on a permanent basis at all management areas and schedule sitting continuously in order to deal with cases received from Case Management Committees. Currently there are 52 Parole Boards in the country and each Parole Board determines the frequency and number of sittings according to their operational requirements. Unfortunately, the detail as requested is not centrally available.

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

The Admission and Release System (A&R System) was not configured to provide the requested information and it is therefore unfortunately not readily available. However, the Department of Correctional Services is developing and piloting an Integrated Inmate Management System (IIMS) that will replace the A&R System. This will, among others, enable the DCS to manage the admission and release of offenders in an integrated manner.

It is important to note that a quality control mechanism has been implemented by Heads of Centres to ensure that profile reports submitted to Parole Boards comply with the required standards and that files which do not comply are corrected before reaching the Parole Boards. This includes a progress report on the Correctional

Sentence Plan as well as ensuring that reports from professionals are not older than 2 years.

Reply:

For the purpose of this question (a)(i) our statistics will commence from 2011.
