Reply:

CCIFSA have since responded as follows:

(a). Yes, board members are getting paid a salary of R30 000 per month. With regards to CCIFSA boards allowances, the organisation conducted research on how other confederations like SASCOC and other institution operates, and the board fees are therefore in line with the industry standards.

(b). CCIFSA is a democratic organisation that accommodates all races, as a result there are members of colour in the organisation; however, the Executive do not have any control on the outcomes of conferences as this was done through an open democratic process. However, the current leadership has already reached out to organisations like TUMSA, SACIA and Visual Arts Network of South Africa (VANSA). The first two organisations are currently associates of the organisation with the purpose of winning their confidence to be fully members of the organisation; and engagements are going on with VANSA with the purpose of finding each other and working together, no formal relationship has been finalized between the two organisations yet.

As the current leadership, we are unable to respond to whether CCIFSA is not representing the creatives. We believe that CCIFSA has played significant role in organising the sector. CCIFSA has managed to create a platform where national organisations are able to engage and discuss challenges of the sector and find ways of resolving them.

(c). The organisation plans to hold an AGM in the next financial year as it needs budget for that, the current budget can only cover administration, and few identified critical programmes. The organisation is doing everything in its power to source more funds including applying to National Lottery to raise more funds to push the work of the federation.

Reply:

No such policy has been made by the Department or the Ministry to remove Afrikaans from the name of the Afrikaanse Taalmuseum en monument. So there will be no name change on the atm. We have charged our entities to ensure that as part of the language development, the entity should take on board at least one indigenous language.

What intervention measures have been put in place by his department to ensure that residents of Ward 5 at Lomanyaneng in Mahikeng have access to adequate water on a regular basis?

Reply:

Lomanyaneng Ward 5 is currently provided with water from the Mahikeng Water Treatment Works and from seven (7) boreholes situated in Majemantsho Village. The current water supply of 5 Ml/d does not meet the demand of 7Ml/d in the area.

According to the Ngaka Modiri Molema District Municipality (DM), which is a designated Water Service Authority (WSA), funding of R 55 million was made available for ground water augmentation project in Lomanyaneng. The project scope includes drilling and equipping of nine (9) boreholes and refurbishment of a booster pump station. Upon completion of this project, it is expected that additional 2.4 Ml/d will be supplied into the system. The project commenced in November 2021 and is expected to be completed in July 2022.

Furthermore, the Ngaka Modiri Molema DM is currently implementing a Bulk Water Supply Project in ward 31 at Dithakong Village which will also augment the supply to both Ward 35 and 5 once commissioned.

What contingency plans have been put in place by his department to alleviate the challenge of water shortages in the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality where residents have been informed to use water sparingly?

Reply:

My department is working closely with Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (NMBM) and other affected and interested stakeholders to manage resources in the Algoa Water Supply System (AWSS). Monthly water use monitoring meetings are held to ensure that all users adhere to the restrictions imposed by my department.

The Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) has developed a model to determine the percentage water restrictions that must be implemented to try and ensure that NMBM as well as the whole Algoa water supply system which includes Koukamma LM, Kouga LM as well as the Gamtoos Irrigation Board does not run out of water. This model is run on an annual basis to determine the domestic as well as the irrigation restrictions that must be implemented to ensure that the whole Algoa system does not reach day zero.

Restrictions were set at 40% of the water resources from the Western side of NMBM. The NMBM could not bring down their water use to the total restricted water use of 222Ml/day. The municipality could only reduce water use to 280 to 290Ml/day despite implementing several projects such as awareness campaigns, leak repairs, pressure management, increase in water tariffs, installation of water use restrictors to reduce the water use.

Interventions already being implemented include the following:

  • The DWS previously provided drought funding to the metro to increase the capacity of the Nooitgedacht WTW (Phase 2) to supply more water from the Fish-Sundays River water supply system.
  • The DWS further funded the Nooitgedacht Coega Low Level Phase 3 scheme which entailed the construction of a 45Ml/day balancing reservoir, an additional section to Water Treatment Plant of 70Ml/day to augment the current water supply from 140Ml/day to 210Ml/day. This project reached practical completion at the end of March 2022, which means that an additional 70Ml/day can be supplied to NMBM.
  • Support to the NMBM to apply for drought funding to COGTA to augment the pumping capacity of the Motherwell and Stanford Road pumpstations and pump additional water to the Western side. COGTA has allocated R58 million drought funding towards this project and the DWS is part of the implementation team
  • The DWS has allocated funding since 2019 towards the development of groundwater in the Kouga Local Municipality to reduce the water requirements of Kouga LM from the NMBM supply dams

The DWS is engaging the NMBM, GOGTA and National Treasury to discuss other possible solutions to ensure that the Western side of NMBM does not run out of water. One of the solutions under consideration is to pump more water from the Eastern side (where unrestricted water is available) to the Western side of the Metro.

Discussions have also been held with the Strategic Water Partner’s network to establish a Nelson Mandela Bay / Gqberha Water Partnership. This entails possible funding from the Private Sector to assist with interventions such leak repairs, water demand management as well as appointing experts to assist with the management of the water crisis. This will be managed by the Strategic Water Partner’s network in collaboration with NMBM and the NMB Business Forum.

Be assured that my department takes the current situation in NMBM serious and will assist the Metro to try and ensure that there will be water supply to the customers.

In 2015 and 2016 respectively, the DPSA issued Circulars (17/3/P) to all government departments detailing the manner in which the implementation of migration to the new housing allowance should occur.

In addition to previously issued Circulars, the Director-General will again communicate with Directors-General and Heads of Departments of the affected departments and provincial administrations regarding the importance of migrating employees to the new housing allowance system. The Circular will be issued in June 2022.

Over and above issuing Circulars, Government Employees Housing Scheme conducts information Sessions with Human Resource Practitioners in government departments to engage on issues of compliance with the prescripts of housing allowance for the benefit of government employees.

Reply:

The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Human Settlements (KZNDHS) has during the 2021/2022 financial year, applied for the Provincial Emergency Housing Grant amounting to R102 590 072. This was spent on the construction of 1 592 Temporary Residential Units (TRUs).

For the 2022/23 financial year and in response to the April disaster the National Department transferred R992 million (R733 HSDG and R189 ISUPG) from the current year allocations. The Province reported that out of the transferred funds, it prioritised R515.9 million (HSDG=R367 and ISUPG=R148.96) to respond to the disaster.

The name of the contractors awarded to construct Temporary Residential Units in the Province are:

  1. Stedone Developments
  2. Stefa Construction
  3. Zingaka Mvelo Projects
  4. Chushisanani Mzansi
  5. Isiboniso Project Management
  6. RH Construction
  7. Uphenyo Trading; and
  8. Miands Trading Business Services

A total of 4 983 Temporary Residential Units (TRUs) will be provided to households affected by recent floods in the Province. The TRUs will be supplied to all families affected by floods across 10 Districts, including the most affected Districts and the Metro (i.e eThekhwini Metro, Ugu and ILembe).

The Province together with other stakeholders are planning to complete the process of accommodating households affected by floods as soon as possible, however, this will also depend on the availability of materials from suppliers, site accessibility for material transportation to rural areas, and the identification and planning process on alternative sites.

Whether his department has any plans to honour King Sekhukhune and have a place and/or a monument in his honour; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The Department of Sport, Arts and Culture is the lead Department in the implementation of the Cabinet approved Resistance and Liberation Heritage Route (RLHR) Project. Each province submitted three (3) sites for development under the RLHR. One of Limpopo’s three (3) RLHR sites submitted in this regard is the Tjate Heritage Site. The significance of the Tjate Heritage Site is the battlefield site representing the victory and unity of the Bapedi people under the leadership of the King Sekhukhune, against the imperialistic and colonial forces of both the Boers and the British in the nineteenth century.

As part of the RLHR, the Tjate Heritage Site is one of the many sites currently being subjected to a Feasibility Studies to investigate how to commemorate the legacy of the site in a befitting manner. It is to be noted that already the Provincial Government has installed a statue of King Sekhukhune at Tjate as well of other four (4) kings in other areas in Limpopo province.

The Feasibility Study for the Tjate Heritage Site, which is scheduled for conclusion in 2022/ 2023 will recommend befitting projects in honor of King Sekhukhune. Furthermore, the Department is engaging with its entity, South African Heritage Resources Agency (SAHRA) to conduct an audit of all the Great Palaces and commence on the process of grading and declaring these Places as National Heritage Sites, which will include King Sekhukhune’s Great Place.

Whether he was advised by the SA Geographical Names Council to rename the Afrikaans Language Monument in Paarl; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (a) what are the reasons that were provided to him regarding the proposed renaming, (b) what processes have commenced in respect of the proposed renaming and (c) by what date does he expect to consult with the public and stakeholders in this regard?

Reply:

No such policy has been made by the Department or the Ministry to remove Afrikaans from the name of the Afrikaanse Taalmuseum en monument. So there will be no name change on the atm. We have charged our entities to ensure that as part of the language development, the entity should take on board at least one indigenous language.

Van Dyk, Ms V to ask the Minister of Arts and Culture

With reference to his announcement of the R7 million relief funding for Liliesleaf Trust, of which the staff are effectively in the dark as to whether the funds have been released, and since the announcement of the Trustees of the Liliesleaf Trust, neither he nor the Administrator who has been appointed by the Trustees has convened a meeting with the staff to discuss the relief funding and when they can expect to get paid, what are the reasons that there has been no action on the part of the Trustees to engage with the Liliesleaf staff; 2. whether the funds have been released; if not, (a) why not and (b) on what date is it envisaged that the funds will be released; if so, (i) on what date were the funds released and (ii) into which account were the funds paid. 3. whether it will be yet another month the Liliesleaf staff have gone without being paid, given the specified situation and the fact they have not been paid yet again while it can be reasonably assumed that he would have ensured that the funds would have been released as a matter of priority; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. The Liliesleaf staff have been kept abreast by the Trustees on measures that have been undertaken by the Trustees regarding the stabilisation and the re-organisation of the Liliesleaf Museum. The Liliesleaf Board met with the staff on 19 April 2022, where the staff was informed that the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture has been granted R7 million to re-establish the museum. The staff was also informed that they will be paid 3 months salaries from April 2022. The Department can confirm that staff has been paid their 3 months salaries as agreed with the staff on the 19th of April 2022.

(1)Whether his department is involved in any way in the eight housing projects in the uMngeni Local Municipality that are being held up by the uMgungundlovu District Municipality due to their inability to provide bulk water and sanitation; if not, in what way will his department assist the uMgungundlovu District Municipality in the delivery of bulk services in order to complete the housing projects; if so, what are the full, relevant details of his department’s involvement. (2) whether his department provided funding to the uMgungundlovu District Municipality for the provision of bulk water; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what amount was allocated?

Reply:

1.  The Department of Water and Sanitation is not involved in the eight housing projects. If required, uMgungundlovu District Municipality may apply to the Department for RBIG funding. Alternatively, the district municipality may apply to CoGTA for MIG funding.

2. As no application for RBIG funding has been received from uMgungundlovu Municipality, no funds are currently being provided to the municipality for construction of bulk water infrastructure to service the eight housing projects. The requirements for applying to the DWS for RBIG funding include a detailed feasibility study report, preliminary designs, an implementation readiness study report and a business plan from the municipality.
