(2) (a) &(b) My Department has advised me that there are no plans to conduct Blue Drop and Green Drop assessments in the current financial year due to capacity and financial constraints.

Honourable Member, I have been made aware that the Department is supposed to conduct Progress Assessment Tool (PAT) on a yearly basis to ensure that the Municipalities whose schemes were not compliant when the last Blue Drop and Green Drop Assessments were conducted do progressively address challenges identified.

I wish to appeal to the Honourable Member to afford me an opportunity to look into the capacity and financial challenges that may have hampered the conduct of these assessments on a regular basis.

The employee further sought compensation for her suffering and humiliation:
  • The grievance was investigated with recommendations on findings thereof supported and approved by the Head of Department.
  • The aggrieved employee was however dissatisfied with the outcome and opted to refer a dispute to the CCMA.
  • The CCMA considered that it did not have jurisdiction to hear the matter and advised the employee to refer the dispute to the General Public Service Sectoral Bargaining Council (GPSSBC).
  • The 2nd dispute arose after an employee was placed on pre-cautionary suspension on 29 April 2019 pending conclusion of investigations into possible acts of misconduct, including incidents of gross financial misconduct, gross insubordination, gross dishonesty, gross misrepresentation, gross violation of prescripts and gross negligence that occurred between July 2018 to March 2019.

The Cause of the one (1) dispute at Arbitration is as follows:

  • The dispute arose from an employee who lodged a formal grievance on 4 December 2017 regarding the department’s failure to pay acting allowance in that the DDG: CS granted approval for the payment of an acting allowance, however, the Director-General advised that the post the employee was acting against did not exist and the employee must move back to her original post:
  • The grievance was investigated and recommendations on findings thereof supported and approved by the Head of Department.
  • The aggrieved employee was however dissatisfied with the outcome and opted to refer the dispute to the General Public Service Sectoral Bargaining Council (GPSSBC).

(ii) The Nature of the two (2) disputes at Conciliation are as follows:

  • The 1st dispute is regarding an unfair labour practice relating to an occupational detriment and contravention of the Protected Disclosure Act;
  • The 2nd dispute is regarding an unfair labour practice relating to suspension.

The Nature of the dispute at Arbitration is as follows:

  • The dispute is regarding an unfair labour practice relating to the payment of benefits, i.e. the non-payment of an acting allowance.

  • One (1) dispute was reported to the GPSSBC on 11 April 2019.
  • One (1) dispute was reported to the GPSSBC on 20 May 2019.

  • A termination by virtue of the said provision is regarded, not as a dismissal, but a termination “by operation of law” and hence not arbitrable under the Labour Relations Act.

What percentage of water that was consumed in the Republic was recycled in each province in 2018?

Reply:

Water recycling is done by the Water Boards as Water Service Providers that are also operating Water Schemes on behalf of municipalities. The information provided to me by Water Boards in response to the Honourable Member is as follows:

Entities

What percentage of water that was consumed in the Republic was recycled in each province in 2018?

Amatola Water

Amatola Water does not recycle waste water as it is operating upstream of the water value chain in the bulk purification, distribution and storage space. Amatola Water’s processing methods at plant level involve an insignificant amount of water recycling which is approximately 1% of the raw water abstracted from source.

Bloem Water

Bloem Water Treatment works does not recycle consumed water at any of its plants; however during the purification stage water is backwashed and sent back to the catchment (Dams). This process is then metered and reported under unaccounted for water (apparent losses) which is one portion of the Non-Revenue Water for the Entity the other being water consumed by the Entity at Plants and the Head Office which is and average of 1.2%.

Lepelle Northern Water

Refer to Annexure A below for recycled water amounts by Lepelle Northern Water

Magalies Water

Magalies Water presents the quantities that constitutes 4,21% recycled water as a percentage of raw water abstracted for the period July 2018 up to 31 March 2019, for the 2018/19 financial year.

Mhlathuze Water

No recycled water activities.

Overberg Water

No recycled water activities.

Overberg Water only provides bulk drinking water to its customers mainly, the Hessequa and Theewaterskloof Municipalities and industrial agriculture.

Rand Water

Rand Water does not recycle water. However, our customers Tswane and Rustenburg do recycle water in their plants as follows:

Tswane:

Roodeplat pumping 30M;l/d (maximum capacity 60Mll/d)

Rietvliet pumping 36Ml/d (maximum capacity 40Ml/d)

Rustenburg:

Bospoort pumping 12M/d (maximum capacity 15Ml/d)

Sedibeng Water

15% of water consumed was recycled water in the North West.

Umgeni Water

The treated waste water effluent re-use is about 8% and the direct recycling is 2%

  • (At present all of Umgeni Water managed Waste Water plants discharge treated waste water to rivers that flow into downstream dams. In this way all of the treated waste water effluent is re-used / recovered in a downstream system (approximately 100Ml/d). This can be classed as indirect reuse.
  • Umgeni Water does not treat any wastewater to potable standards and hence do not have any direct reuse systems.
  • Umgeni Water has a 100% shareholding in Umgeni Water services (UWS) SOC Ltd. This subsidiary holds an 18.5% investment in Durban Water Recycling, with direct recycling volumes amounting to 30 Ml/d out of 1257 Ml/d (2%).

(a) On what date will the houses of the Msunduzi Local Municipality’s Wirewall Rectification Programme in Phase 4 be completed and (b) why has there been such a long delay in the construction of the houses?

Reply:

a) It is anticipated that the houses in the Msunduzi Local Municipality’s Wirewall Rectification Programme in Phase 4 project will be completed by 31 December 2020.

b) The KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Department of Human Settlements terminated a contract with the original Service Provider, Masiqhame Trading 376cc in 2013 due to failure to perform in terms of the contractual agreement agreed to. Subsequently, the Msunduzi Local Municipality was instructed by the Provincial Department to procure the services of a new Service Provider to rectify the houses that were not completed by Masiqhame Trading 376cc. A contractual agreement was then entered into between the Msunduzi Local Municipality and the new Service Provider, Farfield Development for the rectification of the outstanding houses and the agreement was signed on 16 May 2016. It then came to the attention of the Local Municipality that some of the houses that were constructed by Masiqhame Trading 376cc were not built in accordance with the layout plan of the area. As a result, a Town Planner was appointed to re-design the project area and amend the zoning of the properties where required.

What is the basis on which the residents of Steenvilla Housing Project in Steenberg, Cape Town, are being evicted?

Reply:

The reason for the evictions at Steenvilla is that there is an order of court to this effect following non-payment of rentals by residents, which is a breach of the lease agreement.

In October 2016, SOHCO applied to court for an eviction order for 22 households. The High Court granted the eviction order at the end of March 2017.

Profile picture: Hlonyana, Ms NKF

Hlonyana, Ms NKF to ask the Minister of Human Settlements

What is the current cost of building one RDP house in the 2018-19 financial year?

Reply:

The total cost of a Government subsidised houses is made up of three major cost elements comprising of the purchase of the site (raw land), the costs relating to the township establishment process and installation of municipal engineering services, as well as the construction cost of the top structure.

The cost of acquiring raw land is influenced by factors such as its location and market value and this even varies from one human settlements project to the next situated within the same municipal area. The purchasing of raw land is funded from a Provinces' Operational Budget while in some scenarios the raw land is already in the ownership of the Province. As a result, no standard purchase price can be used for reporting purposes.

The cost of the township establishment process and the installation of municipal engineering services are influenced by whether A Grade or B Grade services are being installed. My Department has calculated these costs and announced it to be of an indicative nature. The indicative cost of A Grade services is set at R45 985,00 while that of B grade services is set at R36 258,00.

Besides, for the level of the municipal engineering services the installation costs may escalate due to the introduction of precautionary measures that are required to adequately address extraordinary circumstances such as dolomite, sinkholes, retention walls and rocky areas.

These measures are required to ensure that houses can withstand the conditions of the area. Resulting from these precautions there will also be an increase in the fees for professional services. For contract and budgeting purposes all variations in cost are calculated by using an electronic Variation Calculator.

Ultimately it is the prerogative of the Provincial Member of the Executive Council (MEC) responsible for Human Settlements to approve of the final costs of the installation of the municipal engineering services. The cost is to be funded from the Human Settlements Development Grant (HSDG).

For the 2018-19 financial year the subsidy amount available for the construction of a standard top structure is set at R116 867,00. The actual cost of the construction of the top structure may increase due to a number of factors. The Ministerial Minimum National Norms and Standards for the construction of Stand Alone Residential Dwellings financed through National Housing Programmes provides that each house comprising of 40m² gross floor area, must as a minimum, be designed on the basis of:

  • Two bedrooms;
  • A separate bathroom with a toilet, a shower and hand basin;
  • A combined living area and kitchen with wash basin;
  • A standard basic electrical installation comprising a pre-paid meter with distribution box and lights and plugs in all living areas of the house;

Subsidised houses to be provided to disabled persons who are dependent on wheel chair use comprises of 45m² gross floor area. The increased size provides for the specific needs in respect of the layout of the house as a bigger bathroom, and wider doors are a pre-requirement to ensure adequate movability

In addition my Department has entered into a Joint Position with the Department of Military Veterans to provide subsidised houses comprising a maximum 50m² of gross floor area to qualifying military veterans. The cost resulting from the additional 10m2 increased gross floor area and other additional aspects such as the ceramic floors tiles throughout the house, kitchen cupboards with a electric twin hop, carport with paving and perimeter fence for each property are financed by the Department of Military Veterans

With regard to the special housing needs of certain categories of disabled beneficiaries, an increase in the subsidy amount is needed to ensure that housing units delivered through the National Housing Scheme are adjusted to accommodate the special housing needs of a disabled beneficiary (or a member of the beneficiary household) to enable them to live independently, certain additions/alterations are necessary.

These disabled beneficiaries fall into the following categories and assistance is provided in line with their specific needs and additions or alterations to the housing product are effected:

  • Needs walking aids;
  • Partial/Full-time usage of wheel chair;
  • Partially/profoundly deaf;
  • Partially/totally blind; and/or
  • Partially/total movement loss/paralysis in the upper body limbs.

For comparative purposes the costs involved in the provision of subsidised houses during the 2018-19 financial year are provided below. The table provides for the installation of A Grade municipal engineering services (which is R9 727,00 more expensive than B Grade services but is most often installed) and shows the financial impact of providing different sizes of houses:

2. It must be noted that the construction cost is separate from the cost of land as well as provision of water and sanitation. These costs per uniVhouse can be broken down as follows:

  • Raw Land- R6 000
  • Water and Sanitation- R7 673

3. The National Department provides the Provinces with a sector adopted subsidy quantum guideline which allocates R168 852 per house as follows:

  • Top Structure- R116 867
  • Service cost- R 45 985
  • Raw Land- R 6 000

The main reasons for the variances includes amongst others the following:

  • The housing programme(s) implemented by a Province

        In most cases implementation of Rural Housing Programme cost less than that of Social Housing Programme such as Community Residential Programme.

  • Bulk Provision

 In urban areas, bulk has to be provided before top structure can be constructed and the costs of that bulk are included in the total cost of the construction.

  • Environmental impact

The environmental conditions of coastal areas differs significantly to those of inland Provinces and this pushes the costs of constructing houses for mainly coastal areas with prolonged rainy seasons.

  • Acquisition of building material

In certain Provinces, building material has to be acquired in Metropolitan areas such as Gauteng and the cost of transport has a cost bearing in the acquisition of building material.

  • Labour costs

For rural areas, the cost of labour is less as compared to urban areas and construction costs end up belng lesser as a result.

What is the number of houses that needs to be built in each province to eradicate the housing backlog and enable each South African in the country to live in formal housing?

Reply:

According to information derlved from Statistics South Africa's 2016 Community Survey, which is the latest official national data available, the estimated national housing backlog is estimated at 2.1 million. On the other hand, a total of 3.9 million people have registered their need for housing on the National Housing Needs Register (NHNR). It must however be noted that the numbers registered on the NHNR are being processed on an on-going basis to determine qualification for government's subsidised opportunities. So this is work in progress and not actual demand/need. Although significant inroads have been made to reduce the backlog, it remains relatively the same over years due to increasing demand that outstrips supply. The provincial breakdown of the backlog/need is illustrated in the table below.

What is the cost in Rand for each province to eradicate the backlog?

As explained in question (a) above, the assessment of individuals who have registered on the NHNR to determine if they do qualify for state housing subsidy is an ongoing process. Therefore some of the individuals may not be eligible to receive a state housing subsidy. Those who do qualify, may require different housing programme interventions, depending on their need and locality. If all the individuals on the NHNR qualify for the Individual Housing Subsidy (BNG house), about R622 billion will be required to provide land, serviced site and top structure at the current housing subsidy of R168 852.00.

What is the total number of houses that were given to recipients in each Municipality in 2017?

Reply:

During the 2017/18 Financial Year, a total of 135 981 housing opportunities (made up of 49 935 serviced sites and 86 046 houses/units) were delivered through the Human Settlement Development Grant (HSDG) by the nine provincial departments in conjunction with their respective municipalities.

Of the total number of housing opportunities, 86 046 were new houses that were built across the various national housing programmes, including 3 041 social, rental, hostel and institutional subsidy units which are not given to beneficiaries but remain government (municipal) or institutional rental housing stock.

In addition, the Finance-Linked Individual Subsidy Programme (FLISP) achieved an output of 1 964 beneficiaries who received subsidies and were able to obtain mortgage loans for their houses.

In summary, 81 041 houses were built and allocated to qualifying beneficiaries or recipients. Please see link for Annexure A for a detailed breakdown of housing allocation in each province.

Upon the matter being drawn to my attention, I directed a letter to the Auditor General to conduct an investigation into the matter of the CSOS investments of its surpluses into financial institutions. The Auditor-General confirmed that it would undertake a regulatory audit as part of the annual audit of the CSOS. The report is still outstanding and once presented will be scrutinised for required steps to be taken should it be found that persons had acted unlawfully, illegally and/or there was fraud, mismanagement, corruption or otherwise.

In addition I have directed that the Director-General taken necessary steps to have a forensic audit carried out as well as consult and ensure that the SIU and/or Hawks are directed to investigate the matter of the CSOS investment of surplus funds in financial institutions.

As and when required I will provide reports to Parliament on the details and progress related to this matter.

What is the total number of persons who are on the waiting list for housing in each municipality?

Reply:

The National Department has developed and provided the ability of all Provinces and Municipalities to allow for residents to register onto the National Housing Needs Register (NHNR). The introduction of the NHNR was to provide support and assistance to Provinces and Municipalities in order to ensure that there is compliance with the principle of just and fair administrative action by the state in its process of allocation of funding and subsidies, as read with Section 26 of the Constitution. The Western Cape Provincial Department of Human Settlements does not utilise the NHNR. The information related to the Western Cape is imported in the NHNR on a quarterly basis, from a Provincial specific system.

The total number of households per municipality is presented as follows:
The information on the housing subsidy system (HSS) indicates the total number of households on the NHNR that have completed subsidy applications forms and these subsidy applications forms were captured on HSS against the relevant project.

The information on NHNR indicates the total number of households that have registered their need for adequate shelter. These households have not completed subsidy applications for allocation into a project.

3.2.1 In the 1st incident, the complainant brought an informal complaint to the department's Employee Health and Wellness unit. The complainant reported on comments with sexual overtones received from the respondent/perpetrator that resulted in the complainant being uncomfortable. Thus this incident involved sexual harassment of a verbal nature.

3.3.2 In the 2nd incident, the complainant brought an informal complaint to the Department's Employee Health and Wellness unit. The complainant reported an incident whereby the respondent/perpetrator inappropriately physically pressed against the complainant, when the two of them were in an elevator.

3.3 Was each incident investigated; if no, why not in each case; if so, what were the outcomes of the investigation in each case?

3.3.1 Yes, the incidents were investigated.

• Sexual harassment cases are dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the departmental Management of The Sexual Harassment policy.

• The Policy was developed in order to facilitate, expedite, offer guidance and complement all other Labour relations prescripts that are meant to resolve matters related to sexual Harassment in the department.

• In addition to this, there are various interventions that the department apply for instance, awareness sessions that are frequently held in order to educate and make employees aware of lawful and prohibited behaviours at the work place especially sexual harassment.

• In essence, the department takes every opportunity and utilizes every available platform to provide information and education. For example, quarterly Human Resources Outreach Sessions; Staff meetings as well as Women Month and 16 Days of Activism Against Women and Children Abuse, are used to ensure that sexual harassment matters are given sufficient attention by all.

Reply:

(a) Based on information provided by the Province the site to be developed was already occupied by households residing in informal dwellings. The households were approached to completed subsidy application forms. The completed subsidy applications were captured on the Housing Subsidy System (HSS) against the project. The captured subsidy applications were validated against the various datasets as prescribed in the National Housing Code. The households that passed the validation process were approved to benefit from a housing opportunity. The households that were approved on the HSS were allocated house by the municipality after the completion of the family units and houses.

(b) The Province approved 250 beneficiaries to benefit from housing opportunities in the area. Of the 250 beneficiaries who were earmarked for the housing project , an Additional 77 hostel dwellers were also assisted in the building family units for their families in the area. On completion of the construction of the houses and family units, the Municipality allocated the houses and family units. Post the allocation process it was discovered that the list used to allocate families into the project contained the details of the approved households from the Province, that were not allocated into the project.

The Province as well as the Municipality then embarked on a formalization programme in 2014 to correct the houses and family units, which were not correctly allocated. The formalization programme is currently being undertaken on a phased approach and has not been concluded to date. A current status report on the formalisation process is attached marked as Annexure A, and includes the names and house numbers of the allocated beneficiaries.

(1)With reference to her reply to question 1651 on 29 August 2017, how did the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Council spend R24,714,000 on affordable and social housing during the 2015-16 financial year and yet no units were built; (2) (a) what are the reasons that the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Council’s ability to spend its housing budget declined from 83% in the 2014-15 financial year to 30,5% in the 2016-17 financial year and (b) what amount has been allocated to the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality for the 2017-18 financial year; (3) what are the reasons that the cost per unit dropped of each RDP house that was constructed during the 2016-17 financial year, to R66 000, whilst it cost R111 000 per unit during the 2015-16 financial year?

Reply:

(1) I have been informed by Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality that the reported expenditure of R24 714 000 was for work in progress. The social housing projects are multi-year projects and the housing units are reported when the block of social housing units are complete, handed over and a completion certificate is issued. The projects have since been completed with 256 units delivered, in Germiston Fire station phase 1(144 units) and Delville (112 units) respectively, at the end of the 2016/17 financial year.

(2) (a) The contract of the appointed service providers had expired on 30 June 2016, therefore no construction could commence until new service providers were appointed. The appointment of the new service provider was finalised on 18 November 2016 and appointment letters from the Tender Office were issued on 15 December 2016. There was a period of six months where the Municipality had no service providers for the construction of houses. In addition, the late gazetting of the Human Settlements Development Grant (HSDG) funds by the Province to Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality also contributed to the poor expenditure of 2016/17. The Metropolitan Municipality received this part of HDSG in March 2017.

(b) The Municipality received an Urban Settlements Development Grant (USDG) allocation of R1, 985 billion for the 2017/2018 financial year.

(3) The approved National Subsidy Quantum is R111 000. The Provincial Subsidy Quantum on the other hand is capped at R102 953.55. The unit cost did not reduce as the National Subsidy Quantum stands at R111 000. Further, the Metropolitan Municipality reported that there were certain houses under the category of work in progress, as they were at various phases of construction. In addition, there were expenses for completed houses which were not included as they were subject to internal payment approval process at the time of reporting.

(1)What are the details including the ranks of service providers and/or contractors from which (a) her department and (b) the entities reporting to her procured services in the past five years; (2) what (a) service was provided by each service provider and/or contractor and (b) amount was each service provider and/or contractor paid; (3) (a) how many of these service providers are black-owned entities, (b) what contract was each of the black-owned service providers awarded and (c) how much was each black-owned service provider paid?

Honourable Member, in accordance with the established practise applicable to parliamentary questions contained in the document titled, “Guide to Parliamentary Questions in the National Assembly”, I will not be able to provide names of the service providers as requested. The document referred to prohibits Members of Parliament, including the Executive, from divulging names of persons, bodies when asking or responding to parliamentary questions. It specifically states the following:

Questions are to be framed as concisely as possible. All unnecessary adjectives, references and quotations are omitted. Names of persons, bodies and, for example, newspapers are only used in questions if the facts surrounding the case have been proven. As the mere mention of such names could be construed as publicity for or against them, it should be clear that this practice is highly undesirable. If a question will be unintelligible without mentioning such names, the Departments concerned are notified of the name (-s) and this phrase is used: ".......a certain person (name furnished)”

In addition, to spend time sourcing information for the past five financial years will take time and it would not be prudent to spend resources on a project such as this one. The Honourable Member is, however, encouraged to provide me with specific areas of concern that she might have in respect of any service provider used by my Department and the entities reporting to me.
