Whether Nigeria has followed through on their alleged demand for compensation for Nigerian citizens who suffered losses during the looting and violent attacks on foreign nationals in recent weeks; if not, why not; if so, how will the compensation be calculated?

Reply:

Nigeria has not made a demand for compensation for Nigerian citizens who suffered losses during the looting and violent attacks on foreign nationals that took place in September.

During the State Visit of President Buhari on 3 October 2019, South Africa and Nigeria agreed to establish an Early Warning Mechanism, which is a joint structure that will serve as a preventative and proactive monitoring body.

As the two Heads of State, we instructed four national departments to expeditiously finalise the Terms of Reference of this Mechanism within three months. The four departments are International Relations and Cooperation, State Security, Police and Home Affairs. The Early Warning Mechanism will also consider issues related to trafficking of drugs and human trafficking.

With reference to his reply to question 567 on 16 September 2019, what is the total amount that his department paid in remuneration to each of the 10 suspended employees who are currently facing disciplinary action?

Reply:

I am advised that the suspended employees referred to in Parliamentary Question 567, received payments totalling R5 867 579.

I noted in the previous reply as follows: Clearly, it is necessary to review the systems relating to disciplinary matters to enable a fair and expeditious process of completing such cases, as lengthy periods of suspension of staff on full pay is not in the interest of the public nor of the employees concerned. I have asked the Director General to consider appropriate ways, within the legislative framework and prescripts to avoid lengthy suspensions in future.

What (a) is the relationship between his department and provincial departments responsible for the various world heritage sites to ensure maximum tourism attraction to the sites and (b) processes, procedures and/or mechanisms exist to maintain and upgrade the world heritage sites?

Reply:

a) Relationship between his department and provincial departments responsible for WHS to ensure maximum tourism attraction to sites?

The Department of Tourism has signed Memoranda of Understanding and Agreements (MOU and MOA) with the relevant Management Authorities of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in each province, to unlock the potential and competitiveness of tourism in these World Heritage Sites (WHSs).

b) Mechanisms to maintain and upgrade world heritage sites

Through the aforementioned partnerships, the Department of Tourism has provided support for tourism infrastructure development and maintenance (i.e. Destination Enhancement Initiatives) such as tourism signage, construction of Visitor Information Centres (Interpretation Centres), Accommodation Facilities, Walkways and Hiking Trails, and tourism infrastructure maintenance in order to improve the quality of product offerings in WHSs to enhance the visitor experience.

This work has been completed in partnership with Management Authorities at the Robben Island Museum (WC), Cradle of Humankind (GP), iSimangaliso Wetland Park (KZN), Maloti Drakensberg Transfronteir Park (KZN), Mapungubwe Cultural Landscape (LP), Khomani Cultural Landscape (Kgalagadi Transfronteir Park - NC), Barberton Makhonjwa Mountains(MP), Richtersveld Cultural Landscape (NC), Cape Floral Region (WC & EC) and Vredefort Dome (FS). This joint work has also included the upskilling of guides at various WHSs.

As part of a pilot project to retrofit iconic tourism attractions with renewable energy solutions, the department also installed a solar photovoltaic (PV) mini-grid system at Robben Island that integrates a 666.4 kilowatt peak (kWp) solar PV plant with battery back-up and the existing diesel generation system of the island to significantly reduces the island’s reliance on diesel and lower operating costs.

Profile picture: Van Staden, Mr PA

Van Staden, Mr PA to ask the Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure:

(1) Whether there are any Government departments that have outstanding rental payments for accommodation provided by her department; if so, (a) what is the total outstanding amount of rent owed by each department and (b) for what period has the rent been outstanding; (2) What measures has she and/or her department put in place to collect the outstanding debt from the specified departments that are in arrears; (3) What steps will she and/or her department take if the specified departments do not adhere to the specified measures; (4) Whether she will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

The Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure:

  1. Yes, in the course of its operations, and given its operating model as approved by National Treasury of incurring expenditure and claiming it from client departments, there are government departments that have outstanding rental payments for accommodation provided by the Department. See attached Annexure A herewith which provides details with regard to (a) detailed information on total outstanding per government department and (b) the period the rental has been outstanding.

2. The DPWI has intensified its debt recovery management through the following actions:

  • Meetings with government departments are ongoing to resolve all outstanding balances;
  • Letters of demand are issued to defaulting departments on a monthly basis;
  • Letters were issued by the Minister to the Ministers whose departments have outstanding balances;
  • The Billing Agreement has been developed to address billing in advance, recovery within 30 days and dispute resolution.

3. The following are the steps that the department takes if the specified departments do not adhere to the specified measures:

  • Interest is charged on all outstanding debts;
  • National Treasury intervention is requested.
  • The Department will request National Treasury to withhold allocation of funds for those defaulting departments after all recovery efforts have been exhausted;

4. I want to appeal to all government departments and entities to pay timeously, because it’s causing cash flow problems for DPWI. If we want communities to pay their bills then government must lead by example.

Ismail, Ms H to ask the Minister of Tourism

(a) How does the Tourism Indaba perform in comparison to other Indabas both locally and internationally, (b) what were the costs of the Tourism Indaba in the past three financial years, (c) how are the returns to the tourism sector calculated and (d) what were the returns derived from the Tourism Indaba for the past three financial years?

Reply:

a) How does the Tourism Indaba perform in comparison to other Indabas both locally and internationally?

The tourism trade show landscape is categorised as either a business or leisure trade show. Within the arena, there are International, regional /continental and national shows. Indaba is uniquely positioned as the premium leisure tourism show on the African continent, which is purely inbound, with the exception of some African products. While the exhibitor mix for each show is specific to the scale and individual show positioning, the buyer and media pool remains finite globally, as these are trade specific. Indaba as a platform is a mandate-driven entity, and is not commercially driven.

Other international tourism trade shows are far larger in size, rendering a skewed direct comparison as these shows showcase a full spectrum of global products across numerous countries. They feature both inbound and outbound whereas Indaba centres only on inbound. In drawing a comparison to similar shows, the following insights have been gathered against potential direct competitors, given that even these shows operate differently.

Hereto, Indaba has long-standing equity being a home-grown show that is inbound-focussed, and geared purely towards the growth of the exhibitors and is the only continental leisure show that is not commercially driven.

Due to its scale it still largely remains the biggest tourism trade show on the continent, compared to WTM Africa, We Are Africa (WAA) and Magical Kenya (MKTE). The scale is attributed to the number of exhibitors, buyers and media in attendance. Indaba has also demonstrated a strong imperative of transformation with an annual increase in SMME product participation. Floor-space rates are considerably cheaper than MKTE and WAA. WTM Africa rates are not published.

The primary success factors of Indaba remain the continued and loyal exhibitor base, the quality of buyers (hosted and non-hosted) based on the stringent qualification and selection process, and the number of meetings that are facilitated by means of a sophisticated online diary and matchmaking system.

b) What were the costs of the Tourism Indaba in the past three financial years?

**2019 Revenue currently unavailable as audit is underway; due end October 2019

The objective of Africa’s Travel Indaba in line with SA Tourism’s mandate is to create a platform for South African Tourism and the industry/exhibitors to meet and formulate sound business opportunities with local and international buyers. Therefore, Africa’s Travel Indaba is not aimed to be a revenue driven tradeshow, the business model is to offset the production costs with the revenue collected from exhibitors, to minimise the costs for South African Tourism. By doing so SAT support SMME’s ( Hidden Gems)

c) How are the returns to the tourism sector calculated?

CALCULATION: RETURN ON INVESTMENT(ROI) NOTIONAL (Quantitative)

Using overall averages of reported investment and transactions to calculate ROI for exhibitors. Calculation is derived from Average financial gain vs average financial investment of exhibitors.

d) What were the returns derived from the Tourism Indaba for the past three financial years?

The returns to the tourism sector / participants to the show are quantified, in respect of the meetings that are conducted at the platform, 2018 was the first time that the study was undertaken, and a similar methodology for 2019 which is currently underway, is being applied.

For 2018, and in respect of the above-stated ROI Calculation, please find ROI for Indaba 2018, detailing average financial gain vs average financial investment of exhibitors:

Profile picture: Mhlongo, Mr TW

Mhlongo, Mr TW to ask the Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture

(1) Whether, with reference to the Eminent Persons Group (EPG) on Transformation in Sport, (a) he has found that the transformation measurement tool utilized by the EPG is working after six years in use; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2)(a) On what basis did the EPG set a 50% mark for transformation targets, (b) why are the set targets not being reached by other sports federations, (c) what steps does he intend to take with regard to sports federations that fail to achieve the targets, (d) does he intend to withdraw government funding and/or revoke the rights to bid for international tournaments of sports federations that fail to meet the set transformation target of 50% and (e) what plans are in place to deal with federations that reject or resist transformation?

Reply:

(1) In 1994 South African sport was demographically untransformed, a situation that remained unchanged for 17 years because of the absence of policy guidelines. This changed in 2011 with the introduction of the Transformation Charter based on the achievement pre-set, one-size-fits -all federation targets guiding the sport system towards the common objective of an ‘Accessible, Equitable, Sustainable, Demographically Representative and Competitive sport system’.

The implementation of a measurement system from 2011 to 2015 to measure, monitor and report on transformational change in eighteen defined Charter categories from 2011 to 2015, institutionalised the process in most audited federations. In the process an awareness and understanding of the major factors impacting rate and extent of transformation was developed and the validity of the adopted tool proven.

Identification and deeper understanding of the transformation process led to the introduction of the penalty based ‘Barometer’ process in 2015/16 focused on adding to and improving on the initial one-size fit-all target approach. In the Barometer process a federation sets and project forward (10 years) its ‘own’ targets as informed by its own unique circumstances with respect to, among other, its current structural demographic profiles and resource (human capacity, facilities, equipment and finance) situation.

(2) The substantial number of barometer categories in which performance are measured resulted in a 50% pass mark being decided upon as an initial benchmark to measure transformation progress (or lack thereof) on an annual basis.

Most federations are struggling to come to terms with the challenge of projecting forward meaningful transformation targets against the background of the major impacting factors influencing rate and extent of transformation as defined. These factors effect different codes differently and include the impact of population demographic change, a dysfunctional school sport system, inequality of opportunity and the impact of poverty and inequality on equitable access.

More than half of federations have achieved their self-set targets whilst the other half, particularly those with the predominantly White demographics, is making satisfactory progress (some against great odds).

Based on the insight and understanding developed to date all federations have just completed a review of their forward projected targets to 2030 and based on this imposition of penalties for non-achievement of targets will be rigorously pursued in 2019. These penalties will include the withdrawal of government funding and/or revoking of the right to bid for or host international tournaments as per the MoU with SRSA and SASCOC.

Of the 19 federations being audited everyone has advanced to the stage where there is excellent understanding and appreciation for the need for change from a strategic perspective - longer term sustainability and competitiveness. This is a momentous change in prevailing attitudes from 1994 to 2015.

Reply:

  1. A letter dated 27 September 2019 was received from Solidarity requesting a meeting to discuss matters relating to the Sol-Tech College.
  2. I am looking forward to meeting and engaging with them and any other institution on matters relating to higher education and training.

I welcome the explanation and clarity provided in their letter that Sol-Tech as a private college is fully committed to the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa and all legislative frameworks pertaining to education and training in the country, and as such, rejects all forms of discrimination based on race. My Ministry will engage with them further as we have an obligation to make sure that no South African is denied access to any educational institution in the country based on race, language or culture.

3. The Department acknowledges and upholds Afrikaans as one of the 11 official languages of the Republic of South Africa, which is duly protected by the Constitution. However, any form of discrimination or exclusionary practice based on language will not be tolerated as it goes against the spirit of the Constitution and the imperatives of social cohesion and nation building.

4. The Department’s position is very clear and consistent over the years that in post-apartheid South Africa we will no longer have exclusive Afrikaans, Zulu or Xhosa institutions, but rather institutions, which are open to all South Africans that upholds the values of our Constitution.

Reply:

  1. In terms of Clause 14.5.1 of the Eskom’s Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI), the Chairperson of the Eskom Board is appointed by the Minister of Public Enterprises (Acting Chairperson included). The latter Clause does not preclude the Minister from appointing an Executive Chairperson nor does it prescribe that the Chairperson should be an Executive or Non-Executive Director. Notwithstanding that Clause 14.5.2 of the MOI entitles the Board to designate an Acting Chairperson until the Minister appoints the Chairperson of the Board, the Minister retains exclusive powers to appoint the Chairperson of the Board.
  2. Pursuant to Clause 14.3.1 of the Eskom’s Memorandum of Incorporation read with sections 1 and 63(2) of the Public Finance Management Act 1 of 1999, the Minister of Public Enterprises has exclusive powers to appoint the Chief Executive Officer (Acting CEO included).

(1) Whether, in view of the fact that the former Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries was unable to resolve the matter of the long-term fishing rights in the abalone commercial sector since 2016, her department has made any progress with regard to the Fishing Rights Allocation Process (FRAP 2020); if not, by what date does she expect the (a) FRAP 2020 to be completed and (b) abalone fishing allocations to be finalised In order for harvesting to commence; if so, (2) has the abalone fishing sector been included In the FRAP 2020; If not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

(1)(a) On 04 September 2019, Cabinet endorsed the recommendation to extend the timeframes for dealing with the fishing rights in 12 commercial fishing secto11 which ~ due to expire on 31 December 2020. The FRAP process will therefore be extended until 31 December 2021.

During this time, the Department will conduct Socio-Economic Impact Analysis studies on the General Policy on the Allocation of Commercial Fishing Rights as well as the 12 sector-specific polices. The Department will also appoint a number of service providers ~ manage and observe the Rights Allocation process; to develop and manage the database; to assist with adjudications, and to conduct forensic Investigations and audits on the information provided by the applicants. The Department will ensure that the awarding of all the tenders as well as the actual decision-making during the allocation process Is open to public scrutiny. The Department will also use the additional time to ensure that the decision making is supported by credible scientific and sock>«:onomic information on all the fishing sectors due for reallocation.

(1)(b) The abalone fishery Is currently operating under exemption. A further exemption will be granted for the 2019n020 fishing season in order to allow for the harvesting of this resource.

(2) The Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries decided to postpone the allocation of fishing rights in order to allow the time to engage meaningfully with interested and affected parties, with the aim of developing a roadmap and turnaround strategy involving a range of local and International stakeholders for the future sustainable management of fishing. To this end, we will appoint a special task team with speclflc terms of reference to take the process forward.

Total number of educators who received advisory letters for using corporal punishment by the SACE disciplinary tribunal.

2017/18

2018/19

229 advisory letters sent out for corporal punishment

233 advisory letters sent out for corporal punishment

194 advisory letters sent out for corporal punishment

Source: SACE

Advisory letters are letters that are forwarded to an accused educator at the discretion of Council instead of proceeding with a disciplinary hearing against such an educator. These letters are issued in cases of corporal punishment. Once an advisory letter is issued by the SACE and ratified by the Ethics committee, the file is then closed with the proviso that the same educator does not repeat the misconduct. Should the educator repeat the misconduct; disciplinary proceedings get instituted and the file with the advisory letter gets reinstated and prosecuted. Advisory letters are issued only in instances where an educator has already been disciplined by a provincial department of education and a sanction imposed against such an educator by the employer.

RESPONSE TO NATIONAL ASSEMBLY QUESTION 442

The sanctions varied from removal of the names of educators from the roll and which removal was suspended for certain periods with conditions that the educators not be found guilty of misconduct during the period of suspension. These educators were further given fines that were to be paid over different timeframes, but not exceeding 12 months. Same educators' names were removed from the roll of educators where severe injuries were inflicted upon learners.

(2) (a)

The Department of Basic Education has trained District Safety Coordinators on a Protocol to Deal with Incidences of Corporal Punishment in Schools.

(b) (i) (ii)

The question is more relevant to the provincial administration since it is the responsibility of the employer, who in terms of section 3(1)(b) of the Employment of Educators Act, 76 of 1998, is the Head of the Provincial Education Department, to enforce disciplinary code and procedures against all employees employed at the provincial level.

The question should therefore be forwarded to the relevant employer for details and response.

What progress has been made since her reply to question 33 on 04 July 2019 with reviewing the effectiveness of her Department's policies relating to the management of plastic waste?

Reply:

On 11 July 2019, as part of the Department's budget vote, I indicated that the management of waste, in particular single use plastic waste, Is a matter that also requires the most urgent and pressing attention.

The Plastic Bag Regulations and the plastic bag levy are two mechanisms Government has used to influence consumer behaviour and reduce littering. The Department is currently assessing single-use plastic products which include: plastic carrier bags, straws, earbuds, crockery and cutlery. The department will be conducting various stakeholder engagements in this regard.

In addition, the Department of Environmental Affairs Is in the final stages of completing a study on the review of the plastic carrier bag and flat bag policy Instruments in South Africa, with the aim of determining their effectiveness and to provide research evidence that may inform alternative policy instruments.

Strategic partnerships with relevant stakeholders are also important as plastic pollution is a global issue which cannot be solved by Government alone. As a result, I have signed a partnership agreement with the Commonwealth Clean Oceans Alliance. Under the alliance, the Department is working on the implementation of the Commonwealth Litter Programme (CUP) in South Africa through the roll-out of the Source to Sea programme. The programme will be piloted in Ethekwini by the end of this financial year (2019).

The Department, in partnership with Plastics SA and the Consumer Goods Council of South Africa, will be hosting The Plastic Colloquium from 21 to 22 November 2019 in the Gauteng Province. The colloquium is positioned around six key working groups which are already established and Include:

1) Product standards validation/authentication/definition/labelling.

2) Product design, development and innovation.

3) Integration of the informal waste economy.

4) Biodegradable and compostable plastics.

5) Infrastructure.

6) Consumer Education and Awareness.

NW2133E

Reply:

(a) Implementation of a PPP process is dependent on the completion of a preliminary market evaluation. This is to be undertaken through the publication of a Request for Information (RFI). Specifications for the RFI had to be drafted, and this was undertaken by an appointed Bid Specification Committee (BSC). The specifications were approved by the Bid Adjudication Committee (BAC) on 11th September 2019. On the same date the BAC also resolved to support the registration of the PPP with National Treasury (NT).

(b)(i) The resolution of the BAC is that the RFI specifications should be validated with the Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) of NT. Validity means that the specifications are complete and suitable for public gazetting of the RFI.

(b)(ii) The process of registering a PPP is guided by National Treasury Regulation 16 (attached). This process and the timelines attached to it are outside the control of Home Affairs due to the activities that are required such as those mentioned in paragraph 16.2 to 16.8 of the Regulations.

The Department is therefore unable to confirm with certainty on whether the PPP process would have been finalised before the expiry of the current contract. All effort is being made to ensure that any activity that falls within the ambit of Home Affairs in the value chain of this process is finalised within a reasonable time.

1) What total number of cases of (a) domestic violence and (b) sexual offences were withdrawn by the (i) complainants and/or (ii) National Prosecuting Authority (aa) in (aaa) 2017 and (bbb) 2018 calendar years and (bb) since 1 January 2019; 2) whether he will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

a) Domestic violence:

I am informed that the National Prosecuting Authority does not keep statistics regarding domestic violence matters. In this regard it is important to mention that domestic violence is an umbrella term for several offences which can be both statutory and common law offences. For example, if a person is convicted of the common law offence of assault on his or her partner, it will be captured as a criminal offence of assault and not as domestic violence.

1. During the years mentioned hereunder a number of persons were in contempt of the protection order issued against him or her in terms of the Domestic Violence Act, 1998 (Act 116 of 1998). The statistics of these withdrawals are as follows:

Domestic Violence - Criminal

Constitutional Development)

It should be noted that the figures above are projected as financial years rather than normal calendar periods.

Our electronic court systems at this point do not provide for a distinction between withdrawals by the complainant and the prosecutor. A request has been made for the system to be amended so that a new field can be populated to provide such information in the future.

*Withdrawal rate = withdrawn cases against total number of disposed of cases.

b) Sexual offences:  

(i) There are instances where the complainant requests the withdrawal of his/her case, and such cases can be withdrawn in court. However, the data reflecting this number of withdrawals, i.e., only by complainants, is not separately kept but forms part of the total number of withdrawals reflected in paragraph (ii) below.

(ii) The NPA reflects its performance data according to financial years. Accordingly, the number of cases withdrawn in the dedicated sexual offences courts for the financial year April 2018 – March 2019 comprised a total of 98 cases. During the first four months of the financial year 2019/20 (April – July), 44 cases were withdrawn. Data is not available for dedicated sexual offences courts prior to FY2018/19. It must be noted that sexual offence cases are also withdrawn in other courts but we do not have the specific data for withdrawn sexual offences only, because while data is kept on the number of cases withdrawn, this information is not recorded per crime type, but for the total number of the cases withdrawn.

Julius, Mr J to ask the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation

Whether there are any plans to complete the Droogheuwel water tower project in Randwest City Local Municipality after the budget for this project was wrongfully invested in the VBS Mutual Bank by the West Rand District Municipality; if not, why not; if so, what are the details of the plans?

Reply:

The Gauteng Department of Human Settlements has advised that plans are well underway to complete the Droogheuwel Water Tower Project. This is a multi-year project with a value of R169 000 000.00 and is currently 91% complete. It is anticipated that by end October 2019, the Gauteng Department of Human Settlements will transfer the balance of R 32 008 863.21 to the Rand West City Local Municipality which will effectively enable the total completion of the project.

I have been informed that the Rand West City Local Municipality has not invested funds in the VBS Mutual Bank. However, should the Honourable Member possesses information contrary to this, I would encourage him to send it to the law enforcement agencies for investigation.

Graham, Ms SJ to ask the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation

Whether her department has put any plans in place to repair the wall in the Nqweba Dam, Graaff-Reinet, as per the agreement concluded with the former Camdeboo Local Municipality; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (a) what are the details of the (i) plans and (ii) time frames for the repairs and (b) will the dam be returned to the Dr Beyers Naudé Local Municipality once repairs have been completed?

Reply:

The Nqweba Dam, formerly known as the Van Ryneveld’s Pass Dam, near Graaff- Reinet in the Eastern Cape is used for municipal water supply to the town of Graaff-Reinet in the Dr. Beyers Naude Local Municipality.

The dam was designed by the Department for Irrigation and was constructed between 1921 and 1925 for the Van Ryneveldspas Irrigation Board. It is a concrete gravity dam with a maximum wall height of 46 m and a capacity of 46 million m3. Ownership was transferred to the Camdeboo Local Municipality in 2002.

Dam Safety Inspection Reports found the structure to be unstable under Recommended Design Flood conditions. This shortcoming is typical of concrete gravity dams designed at a time when flood estimates were based on inadequate hydrological records and when uplift forces in concrete gravity dams were not fully understood. A possible dam-break flood caused by a failure of the dam wall would cause a high loss of life and a large amount of damage.

Following studies which were conducted on the best way to proceed with the rehabilitation of the dam, there was an impasse on the recommendations due to a dispute on the different conclusions reached by the experts. One report indicated that the dam does meet the required factors of safety. The Dam Safety Office, which acts as a Regulator within my department, requested that an independent expert be appointed to carry out a dam safety evaluation of the dam and to review the analysis done in the first report. However, due to budgetary constraints, the DWS was not able to carry out the review as requested at the time. I have since instructed the department to find a budget for this review from the current baseline and reprioritise the existing budget.

To resolve this impasse, I have instructed my Department to procure the services of an approved professional independent person/company with dam safety expertise so that the required rehabilitation of Nqweba Dam can commence in earnest.
