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

Whether, in light of the fact that by the end of February 2022, the Silapha Wellness Intervention Programme has reached out to only 953 persons at a budget of R3 388 615,97 and furthermore most of the engagements were through social media posts which implies that Silapha has earned an average of R3 388 per person reached out, his department considers this to be accountable and responsible expenditure; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the further relevant details?

Reply:

It is important to note that the Silapha Wellness programme renders a 24 hour Call Centre services with costs paid monthly. It is therefore misleading to equate the amount spent to only the number of the beneficiaries assisted as the total amount spent is made up of the following elements:

-The expenses of executing the outreaches, equates to the biggest percentage spent. Other costs are the monthly payment of the ambassadors; the monthly costs of running social media platforms and other media & PR expenses, as well as the branding and merchandise expenses for marketing. All these are accounted for as per the contract that the service provider entered into with the Department.

Whether, in light of the fact that the Silapha Wellness Intervention Programme hosted four social media interventions, which according to their report not a single intervention reached more than 150 persons, his department has considered that the programme has a low success threshold in social media interventions and a particularly low outreach to the arts sector?

Reply:

The hosted 4 social media interventions on spaces; in November and December 2021; were over and above other social media activities that help to drive traffic to the call centre during Covid-19 pandemic Lockdown. See below table on numbers as of end of April 2022:

Reply:

The Stadiums are not closed off to spectators.

In October 2021 the Minister issued the Directions based on sub-regulations (10) (11) and (12) to Regulation 69 which stipulated that spectators at sports events are allowed but limited to 750 indoors and 2000 outdoors and, that if the venue is too small to accommodate the numbers without adequate social distancing, then not more than 50% of the capacity of the venue can be used.

In addition, the President of the Republic of South Africa announced that Stadiums would from 23 March 2022 be allowed to have spectators up 50 percent of the capacity of the venue.

Mkhonto, Ms C N to ask the Minister of Arts and Culture

Whether his department has deposited the R7 million that he promised will be deposited into the Liliesleaf trust as he stated during a briefing on 5 March 2022 that his department will intervene in the Liliesleaf financial crisis; if not; what are the reasons that his department failed keep the promise; if so, on what date was the specific amount deposited?

Reply:

No, the Department has not deposited the R7 million into the Liliesleaf Trust Account. However, the R7 million was transferred into the account of Freedom Park to assist Liliesleaf with its financial crisis. The funds were paid into the account of Freedom Park because the Liliesleaf Board is still implementing the recommendations of the Board’s investigation on the funding that it had received in 2015.

Mkhonto, Ms C N to ask the Minister of Arts and Culture

Whether he has been informed that a certain person (name and details furnished) has been suspended; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, on what grounds was this specific person suspended?

Reply:

Yes, I have been informed about the suspension of Mr Nicolas Wolpe by the Liliesleaf Trust Board. The suspension was based on a forensic investigation report that was launched by the Board on the misappropriation of funds at the Liliesleaf Museum.

Given that the Cultural Promotion Act, Act 59 of 1998, gives him the power and discretion to, without Treasury approval, provide funding to independent institutions which meet the goals, objectives and vision of his department, what is the reason that he (a) doesn’t give funding to independent institutions that urgently require it under the specified Act and (b) is opposed and/or reluctant to apply the Act to support those independent entities that are in desperate need of funding?

Reply:

(a). Primarily, I would like to correct the wrong perception that the Culture Promotion Act, Act 59 of 1998, gives me the power and discretion to, without Treasury approval, provide funding to independent institutions, which meet the goals, objectives and vision of my Department. The Act should be read in concurrence with the requirements of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA), which regulate financial management in all national government departments and other state organs, to ensure that the persons who are entrusted with public service responsibilities manage all public revenues efficiently and effectively. Section 38 of the PFMA requires all government entities to put and maintain proper systems in place for effective, efficient and transparent financial management.

In line with the requirements of the PFMA, my Department has developed internal policies to guide on how its mandate is delivered, and this includes funding policies. Guided by our legislations and policies, we always strive to improve our chances of achieving the desired result - thus our business strategy and/or mandate.

(a) which heritage festivals have received multiple grants, (b) in which year were the grants awarded and (c) what was the amount of each grant?

Reply:

1. (a). The names of the Heritage Festivals (defined as Arts, Culture and Heritage Flagship projects) are contained in the table below.

(b). Through a MinMEC decision taken in 2013, DSAC allocates an amount of R4 000 000 per province. Provinces are then tasked with identifying the Festivals and the implementing agents. Please note that not all festivals identified by the Provinces are Heritage festivals. Also, note that the DSAC funds proposals from independent organisations for Heritage Themed Festivals through the MGE Open Call; category of Cultural Events.

2. (a) (b) & (c). The table below reflects the Arts, Culture and Heritage Festivals that have received multiple-year grants; and these are geared towards supporting and encouraging social cohesion and nation building while contributing to the growth of the cultural and creative industry; creating platforms for artists; and contributing to audience development.

Whether his department has done a check on nongovernmental organisations, especially those organisations acting as conduits, to check whether persons who are applying are office bearers of other nonprofit organisations that have received funding from his department and/or have acted as a conduit; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

  1. My Department does not support the conduit organisations, but offers grant funding to beneficiaries that will implement their projects directly. This is to mitigate the risk of smaller developmental organisations not growing their capacity and becoming independent. The Department’s Funding policy and Mzansi Golden Economy guidelines are clear on individuals who are multiple directors in various organisations, as it is not allowed. The Department verifies all the directors of each organisation supported if they are not office bearers of other organizations through a tool provided by the Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA).

NW1217E

Reply:

1. It is incorrect to say that the Department funded lawyers to litigate against the ZM Makeba Trust. We were approached by the family through the Miriam Makeba Foundation (NPC), to assist to resolve the dispute on the intellectual property of Mama Miriam Makeba. Following failed attempts, it was clear that the judiciary could only resolve this matter, and the Foundation then took the matter to the court. The Foundation later approached the Department for financial assistance to employ the services of the lawyers. Accordingly, the Department entered into an agreement with the Foundation and not with the lawyers. This perception that we wanted the lawyers should be corrected.

1. Yes. The Department was established with the key mandate to provide, inter alia, clear leadership in the art, culture and heritage and to accelerate the transformation of the arts and culture sector.

In addition, the Culture Promotion Act (CPA) as amended, provides inter alia that the Minister may in order to develop and promote arts and culture in the Republic provide such other services as are necessary or expedient, or subsidise or finance the provision of services by any person (see section 2(1)(b)(vi)). It was for this reason that we saw it fit to assist in this matter, given our mandate.

Reply:

1. At the onset, it should be indicated and made clear that the Makeba matter has never been about funding litigation between warring factions. From its inception, the Makeba project has been about the protection and preservation of the intangible heritage of the Makeba legacy as per the mandate of the Department. Amongst other issues, this was the resolution of the dispute between Trustees on the one hand, and Beneficiaries of the ZM Makeba Trust, on the other hand concerning the ownership, protection, and preservation of the Makeba legacy. Miriam Makeba was a national figure, and her legacy remains a national heritage.

2. Yes, this was the right way of protecting the national heritage and legacy. Section 2 of Culture Promotion Act (CPA) gives the Minister express discretionary powers to finance any organisation or project - whose objectives are likely to have an impact throughout the country. In this regard, it was the Minister’s privilege to exercise discretionary powers in deciding whether the objectives are likely to have the needed impact. In this event, my office decided accordingly that this matter would have a national impact and should therefore be addressed.

(1). Whether, given the ripple effects and the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on sports that still persists as fans in many sporting codes remain barred from stadiums, there are plans to allow more spectators in the stadiums; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2). whether his department has been exploring ways to assist the various (a) associations and (b) clubs to maximise revenue without relying on gate-takings while the situation persists; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

1. The Department has consistently applied itself to such measures to enable the opening up of sporting venues. With the COVID-19 vaccines being accessible to all South Africans, the Department embarked on a partnership type of approach with sport and creative personalities / organisations.

The Minister established a committee of experts called the Return to Play Adjudication Committee to support organisations, clubs and individuals to ensure compliance. The Department formulated operational guidelines, Sports organisations have submitted their operational plans, which were analysed, adjudicated and approved, and events were monitored.

A proposal to reopen the events sector through a controlled set of Government (DSAC) approved events for vaccinated persons has been processed through relevant structures.

2(a). While the Department may not have provided direct support to maximise revenue without relying on gate-takings while the situation persists, other efforts have been in place to support Sports Federations during this time of COVID-19. The provision of financial and non-financial support to recognised National Federations is to promote and foster development of sport and recreation in South Africa. Support is provided to sport and recreation bodies in line with the provisions of Section 10 of the Sport and Recreation Act.

The support is towards both the administration of the sport and recreation bodies although this is minimal. The significant portion of the support is towards programmes and projects. Self-sustainable sport and recreation bodies represent ideal scenario, which may contribute to job creation and economic development. However, with the prevailing financial situation within the federations, consideration was made to provide for more allocation towards operational and administrative costs to keep the sport and recreation bodies afloat. The Department offered relief funding to athletes, coaches and technical officials who lost income due to cancellation of their events during COVID-19. Further, through the Presidential Economic Stimulus Package, sports federations managed to retain 4, 566 and 921 new jobs were created with the Sports associations.

The Department provided an enabling environment for the return of spectators as per the Directions gazetted by the Minister in October 2021 and requested Federations to submit operational plans. This is part of the plan towards economic recovery of the Sports associations.

Whether he has found that the amalgamation of the Department of Sports and Recreation with the Department of Arts and Culture, which resulted in the increase of entities reporting to him, will have an impact on the restructuring of the specified entities; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The amalgamation of the two Departments will not have an impact on the restructuring of public entities. The former Department of Sports and Recreation had two public entities with separate mandates. Therefore, these entities will not be subjected to the amalgamation process like the ones which reported to the former Department of Arts and Culture.
