Mofokeng, Ms JM to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

Regarding the legislation which will be dealing with gender-based violence and femicide (GBVF)(details furnished), what (a) progress has his department made with regard to drafting the legislation and (b) will be the classification of GBVF in the Schedule?

Reply:

a) In September 2019, President Ramaphosa announced a 5-point emergency plan to tackle gender-based violence and one of the key elements is enhancing the legal framework in order to strengthen the response of the State to GBV.

With this in mind, Department of Justice and Constitutional Development is intensifying the fight against GBV and femicide and have prepared three pieces of draft legislation. The three Bills were approved by Cabinet on the 5th of August and will be introduced into Parliament soon.

The Bills are aimed at amending a number of Acts to prevent and combat GBV and offences committed against vulnerable persons, and to provide for additional procedures to reduce secondary victimisation of vulnerable persons in court proceedings. These Bills are -

1. The Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act Amendment Bill:

This Bill seeks to give further effect to the 5-point emergency plan by, amongst others, introducing a new offence of sexual intimidation.

Currently the law provides that there is an obligation to report to the police the commission of a sexual offence against a child or a person who is mentally disabled. A person who has “knowledge” that a sexual offence was committed against a child must immediately report such knowledge. On the other hand, a person who has “knowledge, reasonable belief or suspicion” that a sexual offence was committed against a person who is mentally disabled must immediately report it to the police. The Bill now aims to ensure that the reporting duty is the same in respect of both groups.

With regards to the National Register for Sex Offenders (“the NRSO”), the law currently provides that the particulars of persons who have been convicted of sexual offences against children and persons who are mentally disabled, are to be registered on the NRSO and it prohibits persons whose particulars are on the NRSO from working with or having access to children or persons who are mentally disabled.

The Bill expands the scope of the NRSO to include the particulars of all sex offenders, in other words not only sex offenders against children and persons who are mentally disabled. It expands the ambit to include other vulnerable persons, such as female persons between the ages of 18 and 25, persons with disabilities and persons who are 60 years of age or older who, for example, receive community based care and support services.

It also makes provision for certain particulars of persons who have been convicted of sexual offences to be made publicly available and increases the periods for which sex offenders’ particulars must remain on the NRSO before they can be removed.

2. The Domestic Violence Amendment Bill

In 1999 the Domestic Violence Act was lauded as a progressive tool in the armoury against the abuse of women, but since then challenges relating to implementation of the Act have been identified.

This Amendment Bill will amend the Domestic Violence Act, in order to address practical challenges, gaps and anomalies which have been identified in practice during the implementation of the Act. It aims to optimise collaboration between relevant functionaries to streamline the provision of services to survivors. Interventions included in the Bill are the mandatory reporting of cases of domestic violence, screening, counseling, a referral to suitable shelters and the provision of medical treatment.

It also introduces electronic applications for protection orders which will allow for applications for protection orders to be made outside of ordinary court hours, thereby giving complainants of domestic violence speedy relief.

It also extends the protection for domestic violence to the elderly, places a duty on anyone who is aware that an act of domestic violence has been committed to report it, provides for mandatory arrest and prosecution where there is physical violence or a weapon is used, and increases the penalties for convictions for offences emanating from domestic violence.

Alcohol abuse fuels domestic violence. The Amendment Bill obliges a court to order the seizure of any weapon, recognises the role that alcohol plays in violence and enables the court to hold an enquiry whereby a perpetrator can be referred for treatment. It further aligns itself with mirror provisions in the Protection from Harassment Act.

3. The Criminal and Related Matters Amendment Bill:

This Amendment Bill seeks to amend numerous Acts intended to address GBV and offences committed against vulnerable persons and aims to reduce secondary victimization of vulnerable persons in court proceedings.


Currently, the intermediary service is available to a child witness or complainant in criminal proceedings. The intermediary service is currently not available to any other witness or complainant who may be exposed to similar undue mental stress or trauma. The proposed new amendments aim to extend the intermediary service.

It provides that a presiding judicial officer may appoint an intermediary in order to enable a witness under the biological or mental age of eighteen years, a witness who suffers from a physical, psychological, mental or emotional condition, or a witness who is an older person to give their evidence through that intermediary, if it appears to the court that the proceedings would expose the witness to undue stress, trauma or suffering if he or she testifies.

The Bill further provides that in respect of an offence against a person in a domestic relationship an accused may not be released on bail before his or her first appearance in a lower court. The definition of a "domestic relationship" is wide and provides for many different types of relationships.

The Bill further tightens up provisions relating to the granting of bail in respect of such offences, the placement of a person who has been sentenced in respect of such offences on parole, the powers of the State to appeal inadequate sentences that are imposed for such offences, the ability of the SAPS to arrest, the prescribed discretionary minimum sentences that may be imposed for such offences, and the protection of victims of such offences against victimisation during legal proceedings.

b) GBV comes in different forms, depending on the circumstances of each case. It can therefore take the form of various different offences, such as assault, assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm, attempted murder, intimidation, stalking, various sexual offences and so forth. The different offences will therefore fall under different Schedules in the legislation.

What is important to note is that the Criminal and Related Matters Amendment Bill aims to ensure that the discretionary minimum sentences dispensation would apply, amongst others, to the offences of murder, where the death of the victim resulted from physical or sexual abuse as contemplated in the definition of “domestic violence”.

What assistance is being given to child victims of sexual abuse?

Reply:

The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development offers assistance to child victims of sexual violence in a number of ways.

Over the years, the justice system has moved towards an approach tailored to prevent and minimize any further hardships and trauma often encountered by child victims of sex crimes when seeking redress for violation of their rights.

Since 2013, the Department has been establishing Sexual Offences Courts founded on a best practice model that offers a wide range of child support services. This model seeks to give children a court experience that is age-appropriate, caring, and responsive to their needs for dignity, respect and privacy.

In line with the 2019 Presidential Summit Declaration against Gender-based Violence and Femicide, the Department facilitated a process which, in February 2020, culminated in the promulgation of section 55A of the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act of 2007 and accompanying Regulations. The Regulations provide for required facilities, devices, equipment, and services that these courts have to offer to be a designated Sexual Offences Court.

The Regulations provide for a range of victim support services - amongst these are services for children which include the court preparation service, the pre-trial and post-trial emotional containment service, the child-friendly private waiting room service, the private testifying service, the intermediary service, counseling services, as well as travelling and food allowances. This package also offers support to children with disabilities. The Regulations further incorporate the court support and accompaniment services, mostly offered by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) to children.

The Sexual Offences Courts offer these services in a sequential value process to prevent any incidence of secondary traumatization. The child is kept safe in a private waiting room which is furnished to respond to the psychosomatic needs of the child. The room offers a play area to keep the child entertained, and is also attached to a private toilet facility to protect the child from exposure to the accused person and other court users.

From a private room, the child testifies with the assistance of an intermediary via a dual-view closed circuit TV (CCTV) system. The goal is to save the child from hearing communication directly from the courtroom. The intermediary therefore serves as the conduit between the courtroom and the child, and conveys questions to the child. When the child is tired during testimony, the court adjourns for the child to take a nap on a custom-made sofa-bed provided for in the testifying room.

The Regulations also make provision for the use of anatomical dolls for use by the prosecutor and the intermediary.

Provision is also made for a court preparation programme which is programme developed by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and accredited with the Health and Welfare Sector Education and Training Authority which is aimed at familiarizing complainants and witnesses in sexual offence cases with the court environment, with a view to preparing them to testify in court and providing assistance and support to them.

Services are also offered at the Thuthuzela Care Centres and victim assistance officers are employed on the establishment of the National Prosecuting Authority and attached to a Thuthuzela Care Centre.

The Department and the NPA progressively improve these services to ensure that child victims of sexual offences receive the support they need.

Whether she has been informed of the allegations that some councillors and politicians at the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality are alleged to have taken and kept for themselves the JoJo water tanks which were meant for communities without water; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what action has she taken to recover the JoJo water tanks?

Reply:

No I have not been informed about the allegations referred to in the question. The Honourable Member is requested to urgently report the matter to the nearby police station and the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality. Further, the Member is requested to provide me with details of this alleged crime.

I wish to state categorically that we are enjoined to deliver a service to our people and for a greater good. As public representatives, the duty of our office requires that we must take legal action against the wrong doing when brought to our attention and not wait for sharing such information through parliamentary questions. In doing so, we run the risk of losing crucial evidence that law enforcement agencies might require. If proven to be true, this is a serious offence and it will not be tolerated.

b) The Covid-19 context has posed many challenges for court efficiency with 268 courts having to close down, as at end of July 2020, for days at a time for decontamination when one (1) or more positive COVID-19 cases are detected, leading to self-isolation and/or self–quarantine for a period of time. Due to an increase in the number of positive COVID-19 cases, some of the courts had to close more than once. The same challenges are being equally experienced by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), South African Police Service (SAPS) and Legal Aid South Africa (SA). It must be understood that ‘business as usual’ has not been possible since the declaration of the State of Disaster due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the Department has sought to optimize court efficiency in order to reduce the number of backlog criminal cases. Engagements with the Lower Court Judicial Forums, Regional Court Heads, NPA, Legal Aid SA, SAPS, and Department of Correctional Services have taken place to identify and resolve blockages impeding the processing of criminal cases. These engagements have been formalized under the leadership of the Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development, and will continue to take place on a frequent basis.

Projects are underway to facilitate court processes through digitalization, and many of these are at a developed stage which will soon proceed to roll-out. Protocols have been developed to ensure that courts operate as optimally as possible in the current Covid-19 context, and these include guidance on when and for how long court closures should take place.

A national plan to manage these backlogs is in the process of being developed in order to address the backlog.

Cachalia, Mr G K to ask the Minister of Public Enterprises

(1) What are the relevant details of private shareholders who (a) have held shares in the SA Express Airways SOC Ltd (SA Express) since it was established and (b) currently hold shares; (2) What are the relevant details of shares traded during the life of SA Express, including the details of the (a) shares traded, (b) share sellers, (c) share purchasers and (d) amounts paid for shares? NW1502E

Reply:

 

  1. (a) In 2007, Transnet divested its interest in SA Express when the airline was established in terms of the SA Express Act (No. 34 of 2007), promulgated in December 2007, which provided for the transfer of SA Express shares and interests from Transnet to the state. The Act further granted the conversion of SA Express into a public company with share capital. In 2009, Government took 100% shareholding in SA Express.

 

The Company is a pre-existing company as contemplated in Item 2 of Schedule 5 of the Companies Act, (No 71 of 2008), as amended, and was incorporated in accordance with the Legal Succession to the South African Transport Services Act No. 9 of 1989 to and, in terms of its enabling legislation.

(b) There are no private shareholders who currently hold shares in SA Express. The company is also subject to the provisions of the Public Finance Management Act, 1999, (PFMA) as amended. The government is the sole shareholder of the shares in the company and the rights attached to those shares are exercised by the Minister of Public Enterprises.

 

  1. The Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI) provides that the company is authorised to issue 1000 (one thousand) Shares. The 2013 MOI provides that the shares in issue are 452 (four hundred and fifty two) ordinary shares, all of which are held by the shareholder, as represented by the Minister of Public Enterprises.
    1. shares traded where 102 shares
    2. share seller was Transnet

c). share purchaser was Government, represented by the Minister of Public Enterprises

d) amount paid was R140 million.

The company received a total of R1 549 000 000.00 during the 2018/19 and 2019/20 financial years. The company was required to provide the Minister with a commensurate request to increase the authorised and issued shares, accordingly. The process was not finalised and the provisional liquidator will only be able to address the matter, subject to prescribed requirements.

Breytenbach, Adv G to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

What is the current status of the special Covid-19 Anti-Corruption unit; (2) whether the specified unit has been set up; if not, why not; if so, (a) to whom does it report and (b) what number of cases are currently under investigation and/or being prosecuted?

Reply:

1. No dedicated COVID-19 Anti-Corruption Unit has been established.

2. Instead, the President has requested the Justice, Crime Prevention and Security (JCPS) Cluster to consider establishing measures through which corruption emanating from COVID-19, both in terms of procurement as well as the implementation of the COVID-19 stimulus package announced by the President, could be dealt with.

a) The NatJoints Command Centre which comprises Directors-General in the Security Cluster and the Directors-General from other Departments directly affected by COVID-19, including National Treasury, have discussed measures meant to prioritize measures aimed at COVID-19 Anti-Corruption cases. The coordination is done through the Anti-Corruption Task Team (ACTT).

The Special Investigating Unit (SIU), the Financial Intelligence Centre and the National Prosecuting Authority, are members of the ACTT.

b) In addition, the SIU has requested that the President issue a Proclamation to enable the SIU to investigate COVID-19 related corruption.

It can therefore be deduced from the work under way that the existing law enforcement agencies have the ability and the competence to deal with COVID-19 related corruption.

Therefore, there is no compelling reason for the establishment of a Special COVID-19 Anti-Corruption Unit at this stage.

Msimang, Prof CT to ask the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services

Whether, in view of the recognition of customary law and its practice in sections 211 and 212 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, any steps have been taken to codify this law for the sake of common understanding and common application; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. Customary law is mostly unwritten, with no dedicated body of persons tasked with making rules or with the authority to define its norms. This body of law covers all matters regulating personal and family life, and only certain aspects of customary law have been codified, for example the recognition of customary marriages, and parts of the law on succession, especially that dealing with the abolition of the principle of primogeniture. Often, this codification emanates from court orders on disputes lodged with the courts.

 

2. The Recognition of Customary Marriages Act,1998(Act No. 120 of 1998) defines customary law as the customs and usages traditionally observed among the indigenous African peoples of South Africa and form part of the culture of those peoples. Section 211 protects those institutions that are unique to customary law. It follows from this that customary law must be interpreted by the courts, as first and foremost answering to the contents of the Constitution. Specifically, section 211(3) of the Constitution orders the application of customary law by the courts, where this law is applicable. Customary law is protected by and subject to the Constitution in its own right, and may be tested only against the Constitution, and not the common law or legislation. While many South Africans subscribe to and live according to customary law, sections 30 and 31 of the Constitution provide for the right to cultural diversity. The recognition and application of customary law rests on the right to culture of the particular community. Customary law in South Africa is tied to ethnicity, therefore the law regulating the lives of people will differ across communities, ethnicities and provinces.

3. Living customary law exists in the system of living norms that regulate everyday lives of people who live according to customary law. This type of customary law is seen as dynamic, evolving and context specific as it changes in the beliefs and circumstances it applies to.

4. Also, in Pilane and Another v Pilane and Another 2013 (4) BCLR 431(CC) the Constitutional Court confirmed the notion of living customary law as follows:

‘the true nature of customary law is as a living body of law, active and dynamic, with an inherent capacity to evolve in keeping with the changing lives of the people whom it governs’.

5. Since the advent of democracy, the Department has through the South African Law Reform Commission, codified certain Branches of customary law, and this includes Customary Marriages and the Law that relates to the Customary Marriages Act.

6. The Traditional Courts Bill which seeks to create a uniform traditional court system, is currently with the National Council of Provinces, after having been passed by the National Assembly.

This is part of the ongoing Project of Transformation of Customary Law, because customary law is living law. Codification is not do-able in a once-off project.

Ngwenya, Ms DB to ask the Minister of Social Development

The SA Social Security Agency has reported that over 7 million Social Relief of Distress grant applications were received from May 2020 with just over 5 million applications approved and out of the 5 million approved applications, only 4 million applicants have been paid out, by what date will she ensure that all the approved applications are paid out?

Reply:

For the month of May the following represents the applications received and paid:

Many applications and queries were received after the special relief grant was announced, but after all duplicate applications were removed, 6 605 445 applications remained that represented a single, complete application per applicant.

These 6 605 445 applications were all validated against databases such as UIF, NSFAS, IRP-5, National Population Register, Social Grants, and Correctional Services. After reconsideration, 2 180 725 applications were rejected as they were found on the aforementioned databases as provided by the relevant Departments.

SASSA approved 4 424 720 applications to receive the grant.(The just over 5 million approved in the above question is only from June 2020). Clients whose applications failed as the personal information did not match that held by Home Affairs were then requested to correct their personal details (it must be reflected as per the National Population Register) and to provide their banking preferences. Once the clients provided their banking preferences the bank details are verified through National Treasury with the Banks. The delay in providing either updated personal details or banking details delays the payment process.

A number of clients requested their money to be paid into the accounts of other people (family members or spouses). SASSA can only pay into an account which is registered to the client. In an attempt to expedite matters, SASSA requested Post Bank to open accounts for the clients where the account details could not be verified.

Challenges experienced with the provision of banking details include the capturing of incorrect banking details (wrong account numbers, which could be attributed to finger faults or wrong account types). Unfortunately this delays the process of being able to pay the clients.

To date SASSA has paid 4 423 387 clients of the 4 424 720 approved for May. There are currently 1 333 clients who qualify for payment for the month of May which SASSA still needs to pay. The breakdown of this number is as follows:

826 clients who have recently provided SASSA with their banking details are with National Treasury for account verification with the banks.

The 507 remaining clients for May have been sent to a team of SASSA officials who are currently actively assisting these clients to provide SASSA with their banking details and correct personal details. They will be paid as and when the required information has been received and verified.

It is extremely important to note that the number of May applicants who are approved and paid for the grant might still increase as more applicants correct their banking information or even as SASSA proceeds with its reconsideration process. It therefor does not mean that SASSA did not pay all people months later, but should rather be seen as SASSA being able to increase the accessibility to the grant as SASSA assists these clients through reconsideration.

The validation process for every application is redone monthly, to ensure that everyone paid does indeed qualify for the grant.

In order to address the issue of secondary victimisation, how will his department streamline and centralise reporting, investigative and court processes between the SA Police Service, the National Prosecuting Authority and judiciary so as to avoid repetitive statement-taking from the victim?

Reply:

Every effort is made to minimize and prevent any secondary trauma of the victim and a number of procedures and measures are in place to prevent this.

However, whilst the prosecution guard against additional statements from the same witness, in some instances there may be a need for supplementary statements to be provided and filed in the relevant police docket. This is to ensure that a comprehensive and detailed investigated docket and trial-ready case is put forward for prosecution where a prima facie case exists.

All relevant stakeholders in relation to Gender-based Violence and Femicide (GBVF) matters – such as for the South African Police Service in respect to investigations, Department of Social Development and non-governmental organisations on trauma containment services, the Department of Health regarding forensic medical examinations, National Prosecuting Authority as the prosecution, and the judiciary – all play a crucial collective role towards enhancing a victim-centric approach and minimising secondary victimisation.

The following initiatives, as implemented by the NPA, play a specific role towards minimizing any secondary victimization and ensuring a victim-centric approach in improving service delivery and support to victims of GBV:

The Thuthuzela Care Centres (TCCs) have specifically been established as a mechanism to minimize secondary victimization, as the objective of the TCC model is to provide all related services (medical, psycho-social, statement taking, follow-up services) at a 24-hour One Stop Centre. There are currently 55 TCC-sites nationally, with six (6) additional sites in the process of being added to the list.

Measures such as quality trauma containment assistance to victims, forensic medical examinations, specifically designed court preparation programmes to collectively increase the quality of prosecutions and achieve higher conviction rates all play a role.

 

The current court preparation model provides essential services to all witnesses to appear in courts, and 50% of their focus is specifically on victims of sexual offences.

In addition, the NPA Sexual Offences and Community Affairs (SOCA) Unit has developed a comprehensive training module (as part of the advanced sexual offences training curriculum) dealing with all related aspects on social context sensitivity awareness in a prosecutorial decision-making environment. The training manual specifically includes a module on secondary victimisation, its possible impact and how prosecutors should avoid it in GBVF matters.

Our dedicated Sexual Offences Courts make use of a number of interventions to reduce secondary trauma for victims, such as preparation services, pre-and post-trial trauma debriefing services, intermediary services, private testifying room/closed court services (via a closed-circuit TV system) and private waiting rooms for adult and child victims.

The aforementioned initiatives and activities are specifically aimed at constantly improving service delivery, which includes minimising any secondary victimization.

The recently promulgated Regulations give further impetus to section 55A of the Sexual Offences Act, 2007 and provide for the required facilities, devices, equipment, and services that these courts have to offer to be a designated Sexual Offences Court. All these measures are aimed at reducing secondary victimization.

In addition thereto, we are pleased to inform this House that three new Bills pertaining to preventing and combating GBV have recently been approved by Cabinet for introduction into Parliament and these Bills, once passed, will go a long way in further reducing and preventing secondary victimization.

Sithole, Mr KP to ask the Minister of Transport

Whether his department has taken into account that due to more movement under alert level 3 and the increased number of commuters who will be using the extremely limited public transport system, the percentage limits on buses and taxis remain the same and yet only one train line has been opened in each area with Metrorail; if so, has (a) he found that the percentage limits and limited train lines will meet the transport needs of commuters and (b) the cost discrepancy between taking the subsidised bus and/or train versus the unsubsidised taxis been considered, especially since the poorest members of the public make up the bulk of commuters?

Reply:

a) In Alert level 3 taxis and buses were allowed to carry 100% of their licensed capacity, there were no limitations.

PRASA resumed its Metrorail Operation on 01 July 2020, in all Regions (Western Cape, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu Natal and Gauteng) in line with the level 3 lockdown regulations, governed by the risk adjustment strategy implemented by the Government in an attempt to limit the spread of Corona virus pandemic. The Metrorail services resumed in the following corridors at 30% capacity in line with the regulations:

Western Cape: Cape Town - Retreat (Wynberg)

KwaZulu-Natal: Durban – Umlazi, Durban - Kwamashu

Gauteng Pienaarspoort - Pretoria

Eastern Cape Port Elizabeth –Uitenhage and East London - Berlin

In response to the increase in public transport demand the loading capacity of Metrorail has been increased from 50% to 70% on 22 July 2020.The provision of Metrorail services has, however, been constraint due to the high level of vandalism and theft of rail infrastructure and assets.

Metrorail services will gradually resume in line with the PRASA adopted infrastructure and security plan and in compliance with COVID-19 Directions. The focus will be on corridors with high passenger demand and with less repair work required on vandalised infrastructure and station facilities.

Hlengwa, Ms MD to ask the Minister in The Presidency for Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities

Whether, given that not much has changed between this year and the last in terms of the gender-based violence (GBV) cases reported in the Republic, her Office has taken any additional steps at monitoring incidents of GBV in order to protect the most vulnerable members of society, which is also aimed to yield different results; if not, why not; if so, what are the full relevant details?

Reply:

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a social ill which continues to plaque South Africa and Government and civil society have to remain committed to making our country safe for women across ages, gender and sexual identities, disability and geographic location. Cases of GBV are reported to service delivery departments such as the South African Police Service (SAPS) and the Department of Social Development.

In March 2020 Cabinet approved the National Strategic Plan on Gender-based Violence (NSPGBVF) and the Minister in the Presidency for Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities was tasked to Chair an Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) on the implementation of the NSP on GBVF and the National Council for GBVF (NCGBVF). Further, the IMC also include the Ministers of Justice and Correctional Services, Police, Pubic Service and Administration Social Development and Finance.

The IMC is responsible for providing leadership, enforcing and coordinating all efforts towards the implementation of NSPGBVF by all government departments. The Departments of Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities and Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation have put in place a Monitoring and Evaluation Plan which ensures that weekly reports on GBVF are provided to the President.

Through the Emergency Response Action Plan (ERAPP) that was launched by the President towards the end of 2019, the number of shelters and care centres for GBV survivors were increased, the capacity of the police to deal with crimes of sexual violence as well as services to women who have to go through the criminal justice system were improved. All efforts are contributing in protecting the most vulnerable members of our society.

Since May 2020 the IMC have started implementing the NSPGBVF and all government departments will be accountable to Parliament on implementing the NSPGBVF.

(1)(a) How many tonnes of ammunition that is currently stored at 97 Ammunition Depot in De Aar have become old and less accurate, have reached the end of their shelf life-span and/or the explosives have supposedly begun to crystallise, (b) what are the calibres of the specified ammunition, (c) what number of each type of ammunition is at the depot and (d) what are the manufacturing dates of the ammunition; (2) whether her department intends to take steps to remove the ageing ammunition; if not, why not; if so, (a) what steps and (b) how long will it take to complete the specified steps; (3) whether the lightning conductors at the specified depot is serviced annually; If not, (a) why not and (b) what number of ammunition depots’ lightning conductors (i) have been fully serviced and/or (ii) must still be serviced this year; (4) whether the security of the area complies with all requirements for ammunition depots; if not, why not; if so, who is responsible for the security?

Reply:

(1) Most of the ammunition at the depot is old, but the ammunition is however not unstable. The life cycle of ammunition is not given in years, and it cannot be predetermined when ammunition reaches the end of life, or even when it will start to become unstable. For that reason annual inspections and functional testing are executed by the South African National Defence Force (SANDF). Various factors however influence the time span on how ammunition age and potentially become unsafe. The two worst case environments for explosives are heat and humidity, and therefore the controlled storage inside the licensed ammunition warehouses is. Annual inspections and testing are executed against specifications, designed for each type and configuration of ammunition to ensure both functioning as well as safety. Furthermore unserviceable ammunition is ammunition that is not functioning within specification, but it is still safe for storage, handling and transport. There are serviceable and unserviceable ammunition in the depot, where the backlog on disposal is on the unserviceable ammunition. There is no unstable ammunition in the depot. As soon as there is an indication from the annual testing and inspection that the possibility of ammunition become unsafe is there, these ammunition is destroyed or even sold back to the original equipment manufacturer before it could become unstable, in order to ensure that there is no safety implication from old ammunition in the depots.

At 97 Ammunition Depot there are approximately 8 000 tons (Nett Explosive Content) of unserviceable ammunition, measured in the explosive weight of the ammunition. This is primarily made up of small arms ammunition, mortar ammunition, hand and rifle grenades, aircraft bombs, artillery shells and medium calibre ammunition. The tonnage changes on a daily basis as ammunition is sold or destroyed, or as ammunition are regraded due to the inspections and dynamic testing. The phase out of weapon systems also has an influence on these tonnages.

(2) Ammunition is stored according to predetermined safety groupings in various designed for and licenced ammunition warehouses. These are designed to contain a possible explosion to those specific warehouses, and are thus traversed with a minimum safety distance to the next warehouse. The licence of each warehouse will indicate what types of ammunition can be stored there, as well as the maximum quantity of each type, in order to ensure the containment of a possible explosion. There are also an outside safety distance, taking into account all ammunition and explosives in all warehouses, to ensure the safety of personnel and infrastructure outside the depot. There is furthermore no ammunition or explosives stored in field storage, which could nullify this safety distances.

The department will carry on with the following steps to manage and reduce the ageing of ammunition. While the under mentioned steps will drastically reduce the old ammunition in the depot during the next 8 years, the ammunition will be able to be stored, handled and transported safely due to the storage conditions and annual management and prioritisation of the ammunition processes :

a. Continue with the annual inspections and dynamic testing in order to prioritise the disposal of potential unsafe ammunition.

b. Continue with the annual surveillance and chemical analyses of the propellant program, as was done for more than 10 years already, in conjunction with the industry.

c. Continue with ammunition disposal of approximately 1000 tons a year by means of sales through Armscor, which include aircraft bombs, 68mm

obsolete rockets, medium calibre ammunition and 90mm redundant ammunition, as well as conventional destruction of all other types of ammunition.

d. The conclusion of the upgrading and maintenance contract of the inert deforming facility, which was done over the past three years, followed by the already planned expansion of the facility to include explosive filled breakdown of ammunition, with the 140mm ammunition as a pilot project, over the next 4 years.

e. The rework of the mortar bombs on a new charge and tail configuration, which will upgrade the bombs from an obsolete and unserviceable condition to a serviceable condition for force preparation and force employment.

f. The placement of a destruction contract for small arms ammunition on the original equipment manufacturer is also in process as was twice done in the past.

(3) All ammunition depots and installations are to meet the requirements in terms of SANS Code of Practice 10313 of 2012, in conjunction with SANS 62305 and IEC Standards. Currently the lightning conductors are not certified. During April 2019 a process commenced to rectify these requirements. A Scope of Work and motivations were submitted to the Procurement Board, and service providers were invited on various occasions during 2020 for quotations in order to certify the lightning conductors. All three ammunition depots’ contracts have been approved for the annual service of the lightning conductors, and contractors has thus already been appointed. All funding has been put in place for these contracts, and all lightning conductors at the various depots will be certified and serviceable after the completion of this process by the contracted supplier. The Department of Defence is in the process of outsourcing the training of members in the assessment, testing, repair, maintenance and certification of the lightning conductors within the Department. The capability would thus be beneficial to the Department in the long term, as all other facilities would also be internally serviced in terms of laid down prescripts. This training should be completed in the next academic year.

(4) At the depot there is an outside perimeter fence, a three tier high security fence, guards as well as a two lock system on each of the ammunition warehouses, with all ammunition locked in warehouses. The high security fence consists of a three tier fence system, of which the middle fence is an electrical fence. The lapse of a maintenance contract entails that electricity of this fence is shut down. The three tier fence, inclusive of the gates, are however still serviceable and in working condition. Additional guards have been put in place to enhance security while the electrical fence is switched off. The maintenance of the high security fence is currently effectively executed by SANDF personnel. Once the project to upgrade the high security fences is finalised, a maintenance contract for the new fences and systems will be awarded again, as the SANDF does not have the capability to manage the electrical fence.

(1)What (a) are the reasons for performing Covid-19 tests on corpses and (b)(i) are the full details and (ii) is the total number of Covid-19 tests that were performed on corpses; (2) whether he has found this practice to be a waste of resources; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

(1) (a)-(b) (i) The testing of deceased persons applies only to persons that have died of natural causes outside of a health facility where their COVID status is not known. The reason for performing this test is to protect the close contacts of the deceased should the person have been positive then the close contacts may be infected. Secondly our death statistics for COVID do not include persons that had died of COVID outside of a health facility since nobody was aware if they were infected with COVID. This data will allow us to include deaths of persons outside of health facilities that are COVID positive.

(b) (ii) The NHLS informs us that there were 86 tests performed on deceased persons to date, of which 13 tests were positive.

(2) The practice cannot be considered to be a waste of resources given that testing a deceased person for COVID-19 would assist in halting the spread of the infection from their contacts to others.

Arries, Ms LH to ask the Minister of Social Development

How regularly does the SA Social Security Agency update its systems to ensure that all persons who receive grants (a) are alive and (b) meet the requirements to benefit from grants?

Reply:

a) All active grants are systematically checked against the Department of Home Affairs on a monthly basis, before payments are extracted for payment in the following month. All deaths which are registered with the Department of Home Affairs at the time of the monthly check result in the immediate cancellation of the grant.

b) Regulation 27(2) to the Social Assistance Act, Act 13 of 2004, makes provision for SASSA to review a social grant

“(a) at any time where it has reason to believe that changes in the beneficiary’s financial circumstances may have occurred;

(b) on expiry of the validity of the identity document of a beneficiary, if the beneficiary is a refugee; or

(c) in case of a foster child grant, on expiry of the court order.”

In addition, Regulation 27(8) makes provision for the review of permanent disability grants when there is reason to believe that changes to the medical condition could have occurred.

The above reviews are all done to ensure that the beneficiary continues to qualify for the grant over time. There is not a set period for reviews provided for in legislation, so the discretion is with SASSA. Since we do not have the resources or capacity to review all grants annually, a policy to give effect to Regulation 27 has been developed and is implemented. In terms of this policy, the reviews are prioritised in terms of grants where the beneficiary information is likely to change, for example, financial reviews are done for clients who declared income on application which either affects the amount of the grant they receive, or is near the threshold limit.

Similarly, medical reviews for permanent disability grants are done in accordance with the recommendation of the assessing doctor, who is best placed to indicate if, and over what time frame, a change in the medical condition is likely to occur.

(1) With reference to radio signal interference in the Tygerberg area in the Western Cape, what steps have been taken by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa to address the serious and ongoing signal interference issues on VHF repeaters (details furnished), input frequencies and licence numbers (details furnished); (2) whether any solution has been found to identify the source of the interference in the licensee’s frequencies; if not, (a) what further steps will be taken to protect the licensee’s rights in terms of its licences and (b) by what date will this be done

Reply:

I have been advised by ICASA as follows:

1. The ICASA technical team has responded to the complainant on several occasions and has over an extended period of time tried to resolve the matter. The interference has been intermittent in nature. However, whenever the ICASA team was on site no external interfering signals were observed. Furthermore, the ICASA technical team made a number of suggestions for remedial measures to be implemented by the complainant to mitigate against the interference. The team’s suggestions were not carried out and as such the team could not conclusively find and resolve the fault/s. Around July 2020, at another site visit the ICASA team found an unlicensed system still installed at the complainant’s site. The unlicensed system was removed and there has been no further complaints since.

2. Should the problem persist the ICASA team has recommended a site change given that other measures were not taken by the licensee. A site change would entail the movement of the equipment to another location, the cost implications of which would be borne by the licensee. However, the complainant was not in favour of this proposal.

Reply:

I have been advised by the Department as follows:

(1)&(2) The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has assigned Radio Frequency Spectrum to the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) for the purpose of providing both commercial and public sound and television broadcasting services. The details of the frequencies assigned to the SABC are provided in the table below. The table further outlines the frequencies that are currently being used as well as the number of frequencies unused:

I have been advised by the department as follows:

1. The department will, in due course, be consulting on the Draft White Paper Audio and Audiovisual Content Services Policy Framework: A New Vision for South Africa. It will be worthy to consider the category of individuals and institutions that should be considered for such a relief.

2. The collection of television licence fees is the responsibility of the SABC. The department has not adopted a position in this regard because the SABC has not engaged the department on the issue. As indicated above, this requires discussions and will be raised during public consultations.

Reply:

1. Unknown. The 32 Battalion Trust Fund was under facilitation of the SA Army Foundation for a short duration as a Non-Profit Fund (NPF). This remote connotation with the Trust Fund ceased on 24 November 2005 with the payment of all monies of the Trust Fund to the 32 Battalion Veterans’ Association. The SA Army had no insight nor provided any direction to the Trust Fund management on its financial aspects, including the purposes of the fund and/ or its expenditure, prior to or following this payment and cessation of the relationship.

2. (a) The 32 Battalion Trust Fund was established on 01 April 1993 as a Non-Public Fund (NPF) and was managed by the 32 Battalion Veterans’ Association.

(b) and (c) It is not known to the SA Army what amount of monies were administered by the 32 Battalion Veterans’ Association as the 32 Battalion Trust Fund is not under any purvey of the SA Army since 24 November 2005, when a payment of R954,218.12 was made by the SA Army Foundation to the 32 Battalion Veterans’ Association (in the name of Miracle Mile Investments 39 (Pty) Ltd.). The SA Army was never privy to the management of the 32 Battalion Trust Fund.

Reply:

I have been advised by ICASA as follows:

1. All invoices for the annual Radio Frequency Spectrum (RFS) licence fees for a total of 20,795 RFS licences for the 2020-21 financial year have been issued. This figure includes the licenses held by Monitoring, District Watch and District Bassett and all invoices were finalised and issued by 22 July 2020.

2. (a) A total number of 20 795 radio frequency spectrum licence holders require annual invoices.

(b) All Invoices were finalised and issued. The total amount invoiced for the annual RFS licence fees is R 741, 258, 948.00. The Authority extended the 2020 annual licence renewal date of RFS licences from 31 March 2020 to 30 June 2020 to mitigate the impact of the National State of Disaster and subsequent national lockdown on licensees. This was communicated on the Authority’s website in March 2020 and subsequently published in Government Gazette No. 43204 dated 3 April 2020. The Authority notes that the COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the day to day operations of the Authority which resulted in some licensees receiving their notices in July. Affected licenses will, however not be penalised and measures have been put in place to ensure that the renewed licences are issued timeously.

Reply:

a) SASSA is currently finalising all payments for applications approved for May 2020. Of the 4 424 720applications approved for payment in May, a total of 3 429 810 had been paid by 8 July 2020. The delay in paying the remainder was as a result of approximately 1 million additional applications being approved, after SASSA reconsidered all previously declined applications against the refreshed database received from UIF. These clients received new SMS messages requesting them to provide their banking details. SASSA will pay them as soon as wereceive theapplicant’s bank details, and National Treasury completes their accounts verification.

SASSA will request Post Bank to open accounts for those clients who have not provided their banking preferences after a period of 5 days from the date messages are sent to them.

b) Validations for the 938 554 applications received in June, as well as the 6 534 754 applications received in May will commence as from 15 July. Every application will be re-validated on a monthly basis to confirm that the applicant still qualifies to receive the grant, as circumstances could have changed in the interim. The payments for all those approved will be extracted and disbursed before end July. The July payments will then follow the same process and be disbursed by mid-August, with August payments being disbursed by end August. The payments will then be current, with payments for September and October being made in the month, for the month.

  • A grand total of 258 cases were recorded in the last five years in all Regions
  • KwaZulu Natal recorded the highest numbers in precautionary and dismissal categories. Overall KZN accounts for 55% which is the highest as compared to other Regions
  • On the other hand Northern Cape and Western Cape recorded the lowest cases which accounts for 1.6% and 2.3% respectively
  • When it comes to suspension without pay, Mpumalanga recorded the highest number namely 8 followed by KZN with 7 cases
  • Both Limpopo and Eastern Cape recorded a total number of 16 cases in the category of employees dismissed for fraud. It is pleasing to note the firm stance taken by both Regions to ensure behavioral changes when it comes to fraud
  • It should be noted that there were no relataed cases recorded at Head Office

(a) ii. Amount of money lost through fraud

The total amount of money lost through fraud over the past 5 financial years is approximately R282, 476,193.

(b) Measures in place to prevent fraud at SASSA

SASSA has a Fraud Prevention Strategy that is premised on four key pillars, namely Prevention, Detection, Investigation and Resolution.

The following Fraud prevention measures and mechanisms are being implemented by SASSA:

(b)1 Policies and Procedures

The Agency has developed and is implementing various policies and procedures in accordance with the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA) and supporting Treasury Regulations, to which all employees and other stakeholders are required to comply. This creates an environment which is conducive for good corporate governance and the prevention of fraud.

(b)2 Internal controls and compliance

Management regularly identifies significant fraud risks and implements process level controls, systems and procedures to identify and prevent fraud and corruption. Types of controls typically include:

  • Authorisation controls (approval of expenditure or grants)
  • Supervisory controls (supervising day-to-day operations)
  • Process controls
  • System controls
  • Financial controls.

A major control that was implemented since August 2019 is bank account verification to ensure that grant money is paid into the bank account of the rightful grant beneficiary.

SASSA is piloting a biometrics solution for staff who access the grants system in order to ensure that transactions are performed by authorised persons.

(b)3 Fraud Risk Identification and Assessment

Fraud risk identification and assessment is conducted at least annually in order to identify the inherent exposures to fraud within the current operating systems and procedures.

(b)4 Fraud awareness

The Agency conducts fraud and corruption awareness sessions and training for SASSA employees and the public in order to assist in the prevention, detection and reporting of fraud and corruption.

Line managers also share information on fraud prevention measures with employees under their supervision.

(b)5 Code of Conduct and Ethics

SASSA has a Code of Conduct that has been shared with all the employees. The Code is aimed at creating an ethical organization culture, which is essential for fraud prevention.

(b)6 Disciplinary Code and Procedures

The Agency’s Disciplinary Code establishes standards for the conduct of all employees and the relevant disciplinary procedures to be adopted for breaches of the code. Consistent and effective dealing with identified instances of misconduct through fraud and corruption serves to enforce Fraud Prevention, by acting as a deterrent to other employees.

(b)7 Employee Screening

SASSA screens employees during the recruitment process.

(b)8 Communication

SASSA uses various tools to communicate with internal and external stakeholders about some of the anti-fraud awareness messages. The appropriate communication of anti-fraud measures and their results is essential to build trust in the social security system.

(b)9 Partnerships with stakeholders

SASSA is working closely with stakeholders in the banking sector such as the South African Banking Risk Information Centre, SA Reserve Bank, SA Post Office, National Treasury, Banking Association of South Africa, Payment Association of South Africa and various commercial banks in order to prevent fraud targeting social grants money.

SASSA has been sharing data with other government entities in order to validate information supplied by grant applicants to prevent and minimise inclusion errors and fraud.

The Agency also works closely with law enforcement agencies in detecting and combating fraud.

(b)10 Detection

Combined assurance (management, internal and external assurance providers) measures are also being employed to detect fraud and corruption within the Agency. The Internal Audit function plays a vital role in the detection of fraud and corruption. The external audit function is an important control in the detection of fraud. Various controls are also implemented in order to correct the controls weaknesses identified by the Auditor General of South Africa.

SASSA also acts on fraud and corruption cases that are reported through the following mechanisms:

(a) Public Service Commission (PSC) Fraud Hotline

(b) SASSA General Customer Care Contact Centre

(c) Whistle Blowing.

Pro-active fraud detection reviews, utilising data analytics are conducted regularly within business units with a high risk of fraud and error based on historic instances or other risk factors. This acts as an important mechanism in the detection of incidences of fraud and corruption.A critical component of detecting fraud is mutual sharing of data between SASSA, SAPO and other entities.

Whether, in light of the concerns he raised on the harmful effects of alcohol, he will consider moving for an alcohol tax to fund the impact of alcohol on the budget of his department; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, can such funds be used to build treatment centres, especially for use over weekends?

Reply:

The proposal of using taxes from alcohol to fund healthcare services is referring to as earmarking. The earmarking is usually legislated and would usually lead to all or a portion of the funds being used to finance healthcare services in general or a specific aspect of healthcare, e.g messaging on the harmful effects of alcohol. This legislative mandate lies with the Minister of Finance.

Historically the National Department of Health has raised the earmarking of sin taxes (alcohol, tobacco, sugar) as an option with the National Treasury. The National Treasury has been reluctant to accept the earmarking proposal citing the following reasons:

  • It introduces rigidities in the budgetary process, limiting availability of funds for alternative and (sometimes) more urgent purposes;
  • Can lead to waste of resources when not carefully planned by recipient institution/ programme;
  • When tax revenue collection is low then the dependent programme will be negatively affected;
  • This may result in fragmentation of pooling and similar demands from other sectors;
  • Will eventually shrink as consumption of harmful/unhealthy products declines.

What are the reasons that the SA National Defence Force (SANDF) is (a) disregarding court orders prohibiting the eviction of the community of Marieville in Ekurhuleni, of which the last court order that was issued in June 2020 ruled that the SANDF must immediately return to the community all building materials and possessions confiscated and (b) still harassing the community?

Reply:

1. What is the reason that the SA National Defence Force (SANDF) is

a) The SANDF did not disregard any court order. The SANDF does not have any plan to evict anyone without any court order and its eviction court application process is under way. The members of the community would stay there until the eviction process by the SANDF has been adjudicated upon and finalised.

It is also important to mention that the residents who left the Happiness Village or the military land concerned have done so freely and this was after the Ekurhuleni Municipality intervened by – inter alia – asking the community members who wanted to be relocated to a place called Zamani, to be so relocated and the process ran smoothly with the SANDF assisting the Municipality therein. The building materials and possessions that have been removed are those belonging to the very same community members who have agreed to move to Zamani. This was done in order to enable the Municipality to know how many shacks and families have been moved and how many are still to remain at Happiness Village/ military land concerned. This approach is intended to help the Municipality to manage the situation better, should the eviction by SANDF of those illegal occupants succeeds.

b) The SANDF members are not harassing anyone and our plea has always been, when the eviction process is still underway, the illegal occupants should be requested not to bring extra shacks and/ or allow new occupants to prevent the mushrooming of the number of people staying there, because if this could be allowed, same will create a very serious problem for the Municipality if it is to assist with an alternative accommodation should they be finally evicted.

Whether there is Covid-19 testing in mortuaries for deaths by natural causes not determined in other facilities such as hospitals; if so, what number of Covid-19-related deaths have been determined at the mortuaries, besides the number of deaths that were already confirmed to be related to Covid-19?

Reply:

COVID-19 testing of the deceased persons is not conducted in mortuaries, however, specimen collection is done at mortuaries according to the Guidelines for COVID-19 Postmortem Testing. The specimens for COVID-19 Postmortem Testing are transported to the National Health Laboratory Service (NHLS) for testing.

The testing of the deceased persons applies only to persons that have died of natural causes outside of a health facility where their COVID status is not known. The reason for performing this test is to protect the close contacts of the deceased should the person have been positive then the close contacts may be infected. Secondly our death statistics for COVID do not include persons that had died of COVID outside of a health facility since nobody was aware if they were infected with COVID or not. This data will allow us to include deaths of persons outside of health facilities that are COVID positive.

According to the data from the NHLS there were 75 COVID-19 tests performed on deceased persons to date, of which 12 tests were positive.

(1)What are the benefits for the Republic’s participation in Operation Copper contained in the Memorandum of Understanding on Maritime Security Cooperation aimed at strengthening anti-piracy efforts that was signed by Mozambique, Tanzania and the Republic in 2012; (2) whether, given the nonparticipation of the other two countries in the operation and the fact that marine piracy remains a threat to all countries bordering the Western Indian ocean, she has found that the resources would be better used to patrol the exclusive economic zone of the Republic; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details

Reply:

(1) In accordance to the Memorandum of Understanding, the Republic has a vested interest in the political, economic, social and security objectives to promote peace, stability and the well-being of its neighbours. This is affected by protecting the integrity of the territorial waters against any illegal activities that undermines security and economic development, which includes piracy. It is the conviction that close co-operation and a mutual understanding as well as collaboration in matters of maritime security will be mutually beneficial to all parties concerned.

It provides a deterrence and is preventative to maritime piracy and maritime crimes committed at sea. The presence of Islamic militants in Northern Mozambique and the potential maritime threat they pose, requires the protection of the sea lanes within the Mozambique Channel that convey a large percentage of South Africa’s fuel requirements. Attacks from the sea are proving a very viable option with a very low risk of being halted/stopped. If left unchecked, Northern Mozambique could very well become a “launching site” for further criminal activities and networks in the region, which may include piracy, adopting asymmetric tactics destabilising and rendering the adjoining seas dangerous.

It also ensures valuable time at sea and training for crew members of the South African Navy (SAN) and keeps the ships’ crews interested in their profession. Relationships are developed with the Mozambican Security Forces and the local population. It is also a valuable source in the gathering of maritime related information.

(2) The SADC Maritime Security Strategy was an attempt to address piracy in the SADC Indian Ocean. The benefits derived from this Strategy and the subsequent signing of the Trilateral Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the RSA, Mozambique and Tanzania, signalled an end to “sea blindness within the SADC east coast, as well as engaging in discussions surrounding maritime security and the “blue economy”.

The promulgation of the Maritime Security Strategy and trilateral MOU was the confirmation of closer co-operation between member states on the SADC east coast to solve a common threat. This should be seen in a positive light firstly as it not just engendered closer co-operation amongst the Navies of the SADC east coast it’s also the first positive step in unlocking the maritime estate of the SADC and with it the blue economy.

Further to the above the SADC Maritime Security Strategy gave effect to the 13th Ordinary Session of the AU Assembly of Heads of State and Government that declared that there is a need “to develop a comprehensive and coherent strategy” in order to achieve Africa’s Security and Safety, as well as developmental aspirations, particularly within the maritime domain.

It further charged the Regional Economic Communities to develop, coordinate and harmonize policies and strategies to improve the African maritime security and safety standards, as well as the African maritime economy for more wealth creation from its oceans and seas.

His father’s death certificate.

Proof that he was nominated as the executor of his late father’s estate.

The above, and also the fact that all this occurred at a time during which there was a firearm amnesty for the handing over of any illegal firearms to the South African Police Service, prompted the Senior Prosecutor to withdraw the charges against the Surgeon General for lack of evidence to prosecute.

The Surgeon General appeared in court after the day of arrest and was due to appear again on the 7th of August 2020, but due to COVID-19, could not attend and the case was postponed to 20 August 2020. It was on this date that the charges against the Surgeon General were formally withdrawn.

The Surgeon General is currently on sick leave and he is still in full service and has never been put on special leave.

In view of many recent reports of family members burying the wrong body instead of their loved ones, what (a) measures are put in place to ensure that undertakers do not mix up dead bodies as strain on the sector increases with the steep rise in Covid-19 deaths and (b) security measures are placed at the mortuaries to ensure the safety of bodies?

Reply:

a) The Department has made provision in the Health Directions published on the 17 July 2020, paragraph 9(5) which states that: “once in the hospital or private mortuary, the body bag may be opened for family members (one at a time) to view the human remains”. This provision allows family members to view their loved ones and the current standard of labelling human remains still applies and there should not be challenges if everyone plays their roles. The normal practice of viewing human remains at home out of the mortuary is considered high risk and therefore prohibited to protect the funeral attendees.

b) All funeral undetakers are required to have a certificate of competence in order to operate. This certificate ensures that mortuary premises meet the minimum standards provided in the regulations. Government cannot provide security services to these facilities as they are privately operated but owners can provide such security services. Government mortuaries are within health facilities and most of these facilites have access control.

1. Provincial Departments of Health must order PPEs from suppliers listed on the Central Supplier Database in accordance with National Treasury guidelines on specifications and price. The National Department of Health does not order or pay for the PPEs ordered.

The information on link below was extracted from the provincial stock visibility system from the North West Province. The table includes the quantities of the various PPEs by facility as at 11 September 2020.
