Reply:

AGRICULTURE

1(a) Cabinet invoked Section 100 (1) of the Constitution of South Africa on the Provincial Administration of the North West Province in May 2019. President Ramaphosa then established an Inter-Ministerial Task Team (IMTT), chaired by Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, to address matters relating to the administration in North West. The IMTT was supported by the Technical Task Team (TTT) comprising of Directors-General (DGs). The TTT recommended that a forensic audit and investigation be conducted into the appointment and operations of Agridelight, which was an implementing agent for North West Department of Rural, Environment and Agricultural Development (READ) projects.

The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) engaged the National Treasury (NT) in September 2018 to conduct a forensic audit on the indicators of possible fraud, financial irregularity, financial mismanagement and corruption relating to the appointment of Agridelight. This audit and investigation had to delve into subsequent operations and activities of projects funded through Comprehensive Agricultural Support Programme (CASP) in READ. The National Treasury began with the forensic audit and investigation in November 2018.

To date, satisfactory progress has been made on this forensic audit and investigation. The DAFF Audit Committee was briefed on the progress made relating to the process. The National Treasury will conclude its work in due course.

(b) This is the only forensic audit and investigation that is currently being conducted by the DAFF and the reason are outlined above.

2. All matters related to this forensic audit and investigation will be dealt with in terms of decisions by Cabinet which invoked Section 100 (1) of the Constitution of South Africa relating to Provincial administration of the North West Province.

RURAL DEVELOPMENT AND LAND REFORM

(1) (a) There are 43 allegations scheduled for investigation on the rolling annual case management register. In addition, the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) was authorised to conduct investigations in terms of the following Presidential Proclamations:

Proclamation No. R. 53 of 2012 for Restitution matters;

Proclamation No. R. 7 of 2014 for State Information Technology Agency;

Proclamation No. R. 599 of 2015, and amendment to Proclamation No. R. 7 of 2014, to include Deeds matters; and

Proclamation No. R.24 of 27 for land reform matters.

(b) The Department has a duty to investigate allegations of irregularities, including fraud, corruption, financial mismanagement, financial irregularities and mismanagement, amongst others. The allegations investigated were received from the Anti-Corruption Hotline managed by the Office of the Public Service Commission, management, whistle-blowers, officials of the department and members of the public. Alleged offences based on these reports include amongst others fraud, corruption, financial mismanagement and maladministration. The investigations conducted by the SIU are carried out in terms of Proclamations by the President as provided in the Special Investigating Units and Special Tribunals Act No 74 of 1996.

2. The investigation reports of the Department are confidential and are generally not shared with the public; however requests for access to the reports may be made in terms of the applicable law, namely the Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000.

(a) What total number of land claims are currently in court, (b) how long has each of the cases been going on in court, (c) what number of judges are currently serving in land claims courts and (d) how many are needed in order to speed up the processes?

Reply:

a) 349

b) Currently the earliest (long serving) case dates back to 1998. It becomes difficult to state how long a case can stay at the Land Claims Court solely because a litigant sues the department or Commission based on a decision taken by a Commissioner. Once that decision is reviewed/ set aside or corrected, for example, in acceptance/ gazetting of a claim, such a litigant will then compel referral of the claim to the Land Claims Court under the same case number as the initial case, then there might be other interlocutory applications on the same case requiring a number of various actions or directives to be issued by the judge or bring certain things to be done e.g Research / Mapping or valuation of lease rights.

c) The total number of the Land Claims Court Judges known to the Commission is (Four) being:

  1. Acting Judge President Justice Meer
  2. Acting Judge Molefe
  3. Acting Judge Ngcukaitobi
  4. Acting Judge Canca

d) The Department of Justice via the Land Claims Court can be the relevant institution to respond to this question as the Commission does not know the time period a judge requires to fast-tract the finalisation of the cases.

Whether his department has ever conducted a feasibility study into the possibility of the Republic procuring 100% of food consumed locally; if not, why not; if so, what were the findings of the study? NW105OE

Reply:

Since 1994, neither the Department nor its entities have conducted a study into the possibility of procuring 100% of food consumed locally.

There was no compelling reason for undertaking such a study. However, the Department undertakes studies on food security levels, agricultural production trends, and agricultural trade patterns. In circumstances where there is comparative disadvantage and domestic consumption exceeds production such as in the case of wheat, the country imports the balance.

What mechanisms has her department put in place in order to transfer vacant land owned by the State to various Government departments; (2) what number of land parcels that are owned by the State have been identified as land that will be transferred?

Reply:

1. A number of organs of state in the three spheres of government (national, provincial and local) are constitutionally empowered to hold land for service delivery objectives. To the extent that the departments falling under the Ministry of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development hold vacant land, there’s no plan to transfer such vacant land to government departments. The plan is to transfer such land to prospective land reform beneficiaries. Our policy however provides for the donation of land falling under our custody to other government departments, in instances where such departments identify such land as suitable for their service delivery objectives.

2. Falls away.

(1) (a) Has a full report on all contracts undertaken by a certain company (name and details furnished) been compiled; if not, why not; if so, what was the total value of contracts undertaken by the specified company since it started work in the North West; (2) whether the (a) Bahwaduba and (b) Tlhabologang abattoir projects have been completed; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details? NW1211E

Reply:

(1) (a) The close out report on all contracts undertaken by Agridelight Training and Consulting has not yet been furnished by the company. This was despite several requests from the Department to the Implementing Agent. In a bid to resolve this matter, the Department is in a litigation process with the Agridelight to source this document. The matter is before the Court and in line with the directives on Section 100 Intervention.

The total amount of all transactions between the Department and Agridelight Training and Consulting contract from 01 November 2014 to 31 October 2017 is R604 048 828.18 as per the financial systems report. The figure includes 10% Management Fee for Agridelight.

(2) Bahwaduba and Tlhabologang Abattoir projects have not yet been completed. This is due to the fact that, upon expiry of the Agridelight Project, the Department attempted to appoint the service provider who was appointed by the Agridelight to complete the project. However, the service provider in question was not, and is still not compliant to the CIDB grading requirement (expired CIDB Grading Level to low) for the value of the project that he was being appointed for. Furthermore, the service provider’s tax compliance matters were not and are still not in order as prescribed by the Treasury Regulations.

The Commission has not conducted any scientific studies to determine the impact of the gazetting of claims on affected properties. However, even if such studies were to confirm a negative impact of gazetting of land claims on property values, such impact would not be reason enough for the Commission not to execute the legislative imperative as imposed by Section 2 of the Restitution of Land Rights Act.

(3) (a) Section 11A of the Restitution of Land Rights Act provides for Withdrawal or Amendment of a gazette notice ONLY where either a party affected by the publication, typically a land owner, makes representations to the Commission with information conclusive to the Commission that the claim is non-compliant or the Commission, through detailed investigation, finds information that indicates that the claim is non-compliant.

Since the decision to withdraw a gazette notice is tantamount to the dismissal of the claim, the Commission follows a 2 stage process which is in line with the provisions of administrative justice towards claim dismissal.

In the first stage, the Commission provides the claimant with the notice or letter of an intention to dismiss the claim where after the claimant is provided with a minimum of 30 days to provide the Commission with conclusive reasons and or additional information that may convince the Commission not to dismiss the claim.

The 2nd stage consists of the issuing of the final dismissal letter where the notice period lapses without the claimant providing convincing additional information or where the information so provided is not convincing.

In all instances affected land owners are made aware when land claims are dismissed or when land claimants opt for other forms of settlement such as financial compensation.

(b) The Commission does not gazette invalid claims.

2. Whether she has found that the suspension of her department’s blended finance programme has had a negative impact on the commercialization of black emerging farmers and producers; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

The aspirant beneficiaries of the programme are farmers/producers that are currently farming and could not have stopped their operations as the funding model’s intention is to support expansion of their operations towards commercialization, so the suspension would not adversely affect them negatively.

3.(a) Why could the review process not be conducted while continuing with the programme?

The review could not be conducted while continuing with the programme because there were policy and approval processes gaps that would have negatively affected further implementation should the programme had proceeded in its current form. In addition to that, the Department did not want to continue processing applications through a system that has gaps.

(b) On what date did the review process start?

The first meeting of the Task Team to review the funding model took place on 11 December 2018.

(c) How long is it anticipated to take to finalize it and?

The Task Team completed the assessment of gaps and the proposed revised model at the end of May 2019. However due to the merging of DAFF and DRDLR, the then DAFF’s Task Team work was extended to include members of the DRDLR to integrate the two processes and develop the policy and proposed funding model. The due date for the finalization of this task team work has been extended to the end of July 2019 and present to the Minister and thereafter Cabinet.

(d) When would the farmers start submitting applications going forward;

Once the Cabinet has approved the policy that guides this funding model. The revised model will specify clearly the date when the farmers may start sending applications through.

Profile picture: Paulsen, Mr N M

Paulsen, Mr N M to ask the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and FisheriesQUESTION

(1) Are there any industrial producers of hemp in the Republic; if so, (a) what is the location of each producer, (b) how much is produced and (iii) what is the Rand value of what is currently being produced; (2) whether there are plans to expand the hemp industry in the future; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details? NW943E

Reply:

1. Currently, hemp production is only authorised for research purposes under special conditions granted by the Director-General of the National Department of Health. The permit is issued in terms of Section 22A (9) (a) (i) of Medicine and Related Substances Act 101 of 1965. About nine permits are issued per annum. The majority of applications are from three provinces, namely KwaZulu Natal, Eastern Cape and Western Cape. Each site is largely confined to 2 hectares in size.

To date, the Department of Health has received and is still considering 36 applications for commercial hemp cultivation. The area to be cultivated ranges from 2ha to 20ha. The Department of Agriculture, Forestry & Fisheries is therefore unable to respond on the tonnage produced and its estimated rand value.

Hemp is still regarded as a drug, and thus regulated by two pieces of legislation, namely, the Medicine and Related Substances Act 101 of 1965 administered by the Department of Health and the Drugs and Trafficking Act, 1992 administered by the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development and enforced by the South African Police Services.

2. Government is working on several measures aimed at facilitating the establishment of a hemp industry with the intension of diversifying the agricultural sector and to create jobs.

The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries collaborates with the following departments, Health, Trade and Industry, Environmental Affairs, Justice and Constitutional Development, South African Police Services, Agricultural Research Council (ARC) and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) towards developing a new regulatory framework for hemp. Much progress has been made in terms of dealing with technical matters regarding production of hemp, research and technology development, commercial feasibility and other related matters. The Departments of Health as well as Justice and Constitutional Development have been requested to amend their respective legislation to facilitate commercial production of hemp and manufacturing of related products.

The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and the Department of Health are also developing guidelines for regulating the cultivation and manufacturing of hemp and hemp products. The two departments will make pronouncements once this process has been concluded.

Paulsen, Mr N M to ask the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and FisheriesQUESTION

(a) What number of (i) buildings, (ii) properties and (iii) facilities does his department currently (aa) own and (bb) rent, (b) what is the value and purpose of each (i) owned and (ii) rented property and (c)(i) for how long has each property been rented, (ii) from whom is each property rented and (iii) what is the monthly rental fee for each property?

Reply:

a) (i)(aa) buildings, (ii) properties and (iii) facilities

None. The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries does not own any buildings, properties or facilities. The Department of Public Works’ mandate is to be the custodian of all national governments’s fixed assets which are vested under Republic of South Africa, for which other legislation does not make another department or institution responsible.

(i)(bb) buildings, (ii)(bb) properties and (iii)(bb) facilities

The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries as a tenant is currently occupying 43 leased properties. The Department of Public Works, as custodian of office accommodation and functional accommodation in the Public Service, is leasing the properties for the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and has entered into lease agreement with the concerned landlords.

(b) (i) Value and purpose of each owned property

The Department of Public Works will have to provide the requested information from its records, as the party to the lease agreement signed with respective landlords.

Profile picture: Dudley, Ms C

Dudley, Ms C to ask the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and FisheriesQUESTION

(1) Whether the Government is concerned about the increasing wheat consumption linked to population growth and increasing urbanisation, as local production is continuing to decrease while imports increase annually; (2) does the Government intend to implement any measures to assist technically with the production of wheat to improve the profit margins and outputs to make wheat a viable crop to farm; if not; how does he intend reversing this situation in which the country will have to import at least 1,8 million tons this year to meet the local demand; if so, what are the relevant details? NW2E

Reply:

1. The Department of Agriculture, Forestry & Fisheries is concerned about local wheat production since wheat is the second most important grain crop produced in South Africa (after maize). Local production averages 2.3 million tons which is far below the levels of consumption which is provided for through importation of approximately 1.7 million tons per annum.

2. Wheat farming in South Africa is confronted by high production cost, fluctuating commodity prices, climate change, outbreaks of pests and diseases and many other challenges. The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries supports wheat producers with technical advice which includes cultivar choice, production site selection, soil preparation, cultivation practices, pest and disease control measures, harvesting, as well as postharvest practices. The Agricultural Research Council (ARC) is also conducting breeding programmes for wheat. These programmes are aimed at developing appropriate and high yielding cultivars. There is also more focus placed on developing cultivars that are drought tolerant as well as those that are pest and disease resistant.

Private and public sector stakeholders are also working with government to increase productivity and competitiveness of the wheat industry. One such initiative is the Wheat Breeding Platform which aims to serve as a pre-breeding facility which develop suitable varieties at a rapid pace which are then available to industry for further targeted breeding.

In addition, a statutory levy was introduced to provide research and technology development funding for open pollinated cultivars. This will also encourage seed growers to make the latest breeding material available to South African farmers.

What (a) are the names of farmers who are subsidised by the State, (b) is the location of each farm that is subsidised, (c) does each farm produce and (d) is the monetary value of each subsidy?

Reply:

The Department of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries does not own land but administers it on behalf of the Department of Public Works. The land is leased to prospective producers as per prescripts defined and agreed to. The implementation of assistance to prospective producers is based on a grant system and thus does not conform to the definition of subsidising production or initiation of production enterprises.

It should be noted that in terms of the World Trade Organisation, South Africa is categorised as a developing country and provision of grants to support production is allowed.

Reply:

  1. Yes

a) Section 7.2 (e) of the Policy for the Allocation and Management of Fishing Rights in the Large Pelagic Longline Sector: 2015. This provision stipulates that because of a lack of suitable South African vessels and South Africa’s limited experience in tuna longlining, joint ventures with non – South Africans may be a necessity; In additi.on, South Africa is a Contracting Member of the International Commission for Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) and the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOCT) and is bound to adhere to respective Recommendations and Resolutions of the respective tuna Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (tRFMOs). One of those is ‘’Vessel Chartering “which allows for fishing vessels to be chartered between Contracting Parties.

b) Combined Fishing Enterprises CC, Ferro Fishing ( Pty) Ltd and Impala Fishing ( Pty) Ltd

c) Three (3)

d) 2005

2. Yes

In accordance with section 39 of the Marine Living Resources Act, 1998 (Act No.18 of 1998) (“the MLRA’’), a foreign vessel license is issued to the vessels before any fishing activity can take place. In addition and in accordance with section 13 of the MLRA, a Permit to Undertake Commercial Fishing of Large Pelagic Longline is issued to the Right Holder, permitting the vessel to harvest the Large Pelagic species allocated to the Right Holder. Lastly, a Fish Processing Establishment permit is issued to the vessels as they process fish on board. The vessels are subjected to the applicable domestic legislation and permit conditions, including a Vessel Monitoring System and additionally, foreign fishing vessels are required to have 100% Observer coverage.

Noting South Africa’s obligations to the ICCAT and IOCT, all the catch and observer data accrues to South Africa.

Whether any investigation has been undertaken in order to trace what happened to tractors that went missing after they were delivered to provinces; if not, what is his department planning on doing to (a) recover the tractors that disappeared and (b) ensure that those entrusted with the tractors are held accountable; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), donated tractors to the Provincial Departments of Agriculture (PDAs) eight years ago as a once off support. On delivery these tractors became the ownership and responsibility of each PDA to distribute within their respective provinces.

DAFF has conducted an investigation to verify the status of all tractor assets for each PDA focusing on the condition and usability of each tractor. During this investigation some tractors were found to be unavailable or missing. To date DAFF has compiled a status report that indicates the state of tractors in each province and the missing tractors have been captured as such. Currently communication to get responses on the missing tractors is in progress amongst the Engineers that were part of the investigation. The next steps are that in November DAFF will share the report and liaise with the Executive officials from PDAs to embark on further investigations to track these missing tractors with the intention of locating these back into the pool.

(1) (a) On what date did his department last conduct an audit of artwork owned by Government which is under his department’s curatorship and (b) what are the details of each artwork under the curatorship of his department according to the Generally Recognised Accounting Practice 103; (2) whether any artworks under his department’s curatorship have gone missing (a) in each of the past five financial years and (b) since 1 April 2018; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

For the past ten (10) financial years artwork was not identified as a high risk area to be audited and therefore no internal audits were conducted of artwork owned by Government which is under the Minister’s department’s curatorship. Although no internal audits were done there are regular stock takes of assets performed by the Directorate: Asset Management. The latest stock take conducted on the artwork in the Ministry office in Cape Town was on 20 September 2017 and no discrepancies were found.

Currently there are five artwork paintings and all five of them are currently in room 106 in Cape Town. Please refer to the attached document for the details as per the stock take conducted on 20 September 2017.

Reply:

  1. (a) The Directorate Food Safety and Quality Assurance does not have positions or designations of inspector posts in their establishment since in the main it is the policy development unit. The Directorate utilizes a matrix of inspectors residing within the Directorate Inspection Services and the designated assignees to enforce the two legislations (Agricultural Product Standards Act 119 of 1990 and the Liquor Products Act 60 of 1989). There are currently 39 inspectors who are responsible for inspection of certain regulated products and the exercise of an oversight role over the activities of the designated assignees. (b) there is a total of (i) 30 (thirty) filled posts and (ii)  9 (nine) vacant posts.\
  2. (a) There is no work of the Directorate Food Safety and Quality Assurance that has been outsourced. However, the Agricultural Product Standards Act 119 of 1990 does allow the designation of assignees to complement the inspection services. There are currently seven assignees in terms of the Agricultural Product Standards Act (b) the designation does not cost the department anything.

NW 2424E

Reply:

Yes, the Mpumalanga Provincial Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, Land and Environmental Affairs did compensate the livestock farmers of Kwasimu farmers association those affected by the disaster by replacing their livestock.

i. What are the relevant details of all assistance provided to the farmers

The Provincial Cabinet took a resolution that the Department should compensate the farmers who were affected by replacing their livestock. Agricultural Advisors, Animal Health Technicians and Veterinarians were deployed to visit the affected farms. During the visits the Departmental officials verified the number of animals that had died and a list was developed based on the verification. All the farmers who reported to the Department that they lost livestock were visited for verification. The Department had set a period whereby affected farmers were given an opportunity to register the dead livestock. The farmers who did not report any loss of livestock during that period to the Department were unfortunately not recorded in the Departmental list of affected farmers

As part of the compensation, the Department procured 1 000 Nguni Heifers for the farmers based on the approved list of 399 affected farmers who lost 1 583 animals. The replacement livestock was kept within Thembisile Hani Local Municipality at Leeuwkop farm, in Verena for diseases monitoring before handing over to the verified beneficiaries. A task team was formed which was led by department officials based at the Province and District. Ward councilors and farmers’ representative (chairperson of Kwasimu farmers association) formed part of the task team for coordination.

An official handover of the livestock was done by the Hon MEC Gamede on the 18th April 2015 at Kwaggafontein.The distribution of the livestock then commenced on the 19th April 2015 to Saturday 30th April 2015 at Leeuwkop farm.

A distribution strategy was used to ensure a fair and transparent distribution of the livestock to the affected Thembisile Hani livestock beneficiaries:

  • All affected farmers received letters which indicated how many cattle each farmer will receive and the date on when they will come to collect their livestock
  • Farmers provided their own transport for collection
  • A formula was developed by the Department to determine on how many cattle each farmer would receive as compensation. This formula enabled all the farmers to receive livestock and those that have lost more livestock received more livestock as per the formula
  • The farmer signed an acknowledgement letter after receiving the livestock, kept as portfolio of evidence
  • A permit was also provided to allow them to take the livestock to their different locations.

By the end of the distribution period 847 cattle were distributed to the 355 farmers. Some farmers on the list were no longer traceable using their contact numbers and officials went to an extent of delivering the invitations into their homes and dipping tank committees, CDWS and councilors were engaged as an endeavor to get all the listed farmers. A grace period until the 4th of May 2015 was given to allow the farmers who didn’t pitch for collection to come and collect their livestock. After the grace period, the remaining livestock was taken out from Leeuwkop farm on the 14th May 2015 to a farm near Marapyane College research farm, this was to avoid high costs for keeping the livestock on the holding farm.

ii. the names of all beneficiaries,

List of beneficiaries who received the livestock is attached.

iii. the number of cattle each beneficiary received,

A formula was developed to enable the Department to compensate all the affected farmers as per the attached list

iv. Where were the cattle purchased

An approval to procure directly from the breeder Mr. HA Rassouw (Duma Investment) was obtained from the Accounting Officer

v. what was the condition of the cattle and

Most of the heifers were in a good condition as they were certified by local Veterinarians on arrival for diseases and were also monitored on daily basis during the distribution period

vi. the average age of the cattle;

Most of the cattle provided were first time calving heifers and were pregnant. Some gave birth during the distribution period on the holding farm

(2)  Whether his Department and/or the Department of agriculture in Mpumalanga gave any livestock to traditional leaders following the specified livestock mortality disaster;

Yes, from the surplus of the specified livestock mortality disaster, 28 (twenty eight) Traditional Leaders including the Ingwenyamas were given 155 (Hundred and fifty five) cattle following the pronouncement by the then Premier of the Mpumalanga Province Honourable DD Mabuza that the Traditional Leaders should also be supported with livestock.

(3) whether any small-scale farmers affected by the specified livestock mortality disaster were excluded as beneficiaries for assistance; if so, (a) why and (b) which small-scale farmers were excluded?

No affected small scale farmers were excluded.
