(1). (a). What is the time frame for the Chairperson of the Performing Arts Centre of the Free State (PACOFS) Audit and Risk Committee and (b) how long has the current chairperson been in the position; (2). whether the specified position has been advertised every three years; if not, why not; if so, (a)(i) where and on (ii) what dates, (b) what was the total number of applications .and (c) who did the interviews; (3) whether he has found it good governance practice for a chairperson to serve for three consecutive terms in one institution; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (4). whether the current chairperson (name furnished) is a government employee at Treasury Northern Cape and being remunerated for it; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, does the policy permit for this; (5). (a) has the institution ever received a clean audit under the watch of the specified chairperson and (b) what was the role of the Chairperson of the PACOFS Audit and Risk Committee with regard the implementation of the recommendations of the Morar forensic investigation report which was completed in 2018? NW2372E

Reply:

1. (a) The time frame for the Chairperson of the Audit and Risk Committee is 3 years, which can be renewable for another 3-year term as provided for in the Audit and Risk Committee.

(b)The Chairperson of the Audit and Risk Committee has served for a period of 5 years, and he is serving his second and final term.

(c) He was re-appointed unanimously by Council in its meeting held on 14 June 2019, after his effectiveness, independence and objectivity was evaluated by the Chairperson of Council.

2. There is no legal requirement to advertise the position every three years. The Charter states the term of office (3 years) and indicates that the Accounting Authority may renew the contract once, which is to a maximum of 6 years. In exceptional circumstance where a member has resigned, died or automatically terminated, the position may then be advertised only if there is no prospective substitute member.

3. As stated above, the Chairperson of the Audit and Risk Committee is serving his second and final term. It is not good governance for a Chairperson of any Institution to serve over the prescribed term of office and the Charter does not allow for such. PACOFS applies the principles of KING IV to advance effective and excellent corporate leadership.

4. The current Chairperson is not a government employee at Treasury Northern Cape. He is compensated for being a Chairperson of Audit and Risk Committee according to rates determined by the National Treasury and approved PACOFS remuneration policy.

5. No, the institution has not received a clean audit under the leadership of the current Audit & Risk Committee Chairperson. Noteworthy is that the current Chairperson joined PACOFS in 2016 after it received a disclaimer of opinion in the financial period 2015/16. Under his leadership and active oversight role, he has since steered the institution to obtain an unqualified audit opinion in the period 2020/2021, a significant improvement worth noting since the past three financial period.

(b) The Chairperson of the Audit and Risk Committee has no role to play in the implementation of the recommendations of the Morar Investigation report, as it is Council’s responsibility to implement the recommendations of the report.

What assistance will his department give to the Sekhukhune District, which currently boasts two professional soccer clubs, to ensure that they have a football facility, which is in accordance with professional soccer league standards?

Reply:

The provision of Sports facilities is the constitutional responsibility of Local Government. Be that as it may, through the intervention of  the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture, the following Municipalities in Sekhukhune District were recommended to benefit from  the ring-fenced MIG allocation: 2016/17 Elias Motswaledi LM benefited R10 000 000 (10 Million Rands) for upgrading of Tlogotlou Stadium and the project is completed and was handed over by the former Minister Xasa.

In 2017/18 Ephraim Mogale LM was allocated R10 832 00.00 (Ten, eight million rands) for construction of Leeufontein sports ground the project is at practical completion stage.

(1). What steps has he taken to address the many allegations of racism within professional cricket that have been aired over the past month; (2). whether he has engaged with Enoch Nkwe, the former assistant coach of the national cricket team, who resigned citing a toxic working environment as the reason for his resignation; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

In its response CSA indicated the following;

1. CSA launched a Social Justice and Nation Building (SJN) process, headed by Adv Dumisa Ntsebeza SC (Office of the Transformation Ombudsman – OTO). Part of the process has included having public hearings where different individuals and stakeholders made oral and written submissions. CSA supports this independent process and is eagerly awaiting the report and its recommendations that will help cricket with its healing process, redress and contribute to social cohesion and nation building. Reform and transformation remain non-negotiable as a means of correcting historical imbalances.

(a) CSA expects to receive the report from the OTO by end of November 2021.

2. The Board did engage Mr Nkwe and was rightfully concerned by what he had to say.

(a) As a result, a Board Task Team has been formed to do a fact-finding exercise and engage with the Team (players and management) and all other relevant stakeholders. On completion of this exercise, the Task Team will report to the Board and based on their conclusion, the matter will be addressed as a matter of urgency.

(1).(a) What total amount of his department’s budget was spent on the SA Music Industry Council’s (SAMIC's) elective conference and (b) where did the money come from; (2). what measures did his department take as a precaution to see to it that public money is not reduced into wasteful expenditure, considering the previous track record of the SAMIC's non-compliance, as well as direct and indirect mismanagement of public funds; (3). whether any bodies and/or organisations indicated to him and/or his department their intention to contest the constitutionality of the elective conference and its outcomes in court; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details; (4). given that his department has funded the elective conference, what is the short-term plan and long-term plan that justifies the urgent need to fund the legitimisation of SAMIC's existence, seeing that there is no track record of tangible programmes as per its mission and objectives other than meetings, hotel bookings and travelling costs, or can his department provide the relevant details? NW2502E

Reply:

1. The Department approved a grant for R602 000 to SAMIC for the hosting of this conference and the funds were sourced from MGE Cultural Events budget.

2. Upon approval of the grant, the Department entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with SAMIC stipulating the conditions of the grant and deliverables as the clause of the contract.

3. To our knowledge, no formations or individuals indicated any intention to contest the outcome of SAMIC elective conference. The Department has since received the SAMIC close out report as per the contractual obligation.

4. SAMIC was funded like the other sector organisation in the arts and culture sector with the objective of building capacity and creating a platform for engagements to strengthen their programmes and operations.

What support is his department providing for the first officially recognised Tana Baru Muslim Cemetery in Bo-Kaap in Cape Town, given its national heritage status?

Reply:

The Tana Baru Muslim Cemetery is managed by a private entity (The Tana Baru Trust) and as such do not receive any direct financial support from the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture.

The Tana Baru Muslim Cemetery falls under the conservation framework laid out in Section 27 of the National Heritage Resources Act (Act 25 of 1999). This ensures that the site will receive support in terms of conservation and protection from SAHRA

Whether, with reference to the policy conference of the Cultural and Creative Industries Federation of South Africa (CCIFSA) held in KwaZulu-Natal from 11 to 13 December 2020 and from which many national and provincial CCIFSA sector leaders and representatives distanced themselves publicly, he has found that the conference was held in accordance with applicable legislation and/or policy directives and therefore legitimate; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

In our view, the conference was successful and hosted in accordance with applicable legislation based on one of the resolutions taken at an elective conference in Mpumalanga.

It was also attended by at least representatives from eight Provinces with the exception of the Free State Province.

(1). Whether the current leadership of the Cultural and Creative Industries Federation of South Africa (CCIFSA) has received the audited financial statements from the previous CCIFSA leadership; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (2). whether he has found that the audited financial statements were satisfactory; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details? NW2539E

Reply:

1. The Cultural and Creative Industries Federation of South Africa (CCIFSA) has always been managed as an independent institution from DSAC given the manner in which it was formed and registered. The Companies Act provides for the business and affairs of a company to be managed by, or under, the direction of its board and the Act also puts a legal duty to Directors to keep company records. While DSAC facilitated the handing over of CCIFSA from the previous leadership, we were also mindful of the independence of the structure hence CCIFSA is not part of our declared institution and therefor did not attend the meetings of the parties to check what exactly items are being handed over, we are aware that the handover process from the previous leadership to the current CCIFSA leadership was conducted.

2. Yes, we found that the audited financial statements were satisfactory. As you are aware, the Companies Act requires all financial statements to be prepared in accordance with a particular framework, also referred to broadly as accounting standards or financial reporting standards.

As part of the requirement, independent auditors using a framework of generally accepted auditing standards which set out the manner in which audit is conducted should evaluate financial statements. The auditors are responsible for expressing an opinion indicating that reasonable assurance has been obtained that the financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and that they are fairly presented in accordance with the relevant accounting standards.

According to the information presented, this was the case with CCIFSA and based on the auditors’ opinion, the financial statements presented fairly, in all material respects. It is upon this independent judgement that we found the statements to be satisfactory.

(1). Taking into account that his department was alerted of the status of the SA Music Industry Council (SAMIC) vis-à-vis the Department of Trade and Industry's withdrawal of its support towards SAMIC due to unaccountability and non-compliance with the Public Finance Management Act, Act 1 of 1999, and Corporate Governance, what (a) informed the decision of his department to fund the hosting of the recent SAMIC conference and (b) documentation did his department acquire from SAMIC to warrant the approval of the specified funding; (2). whether his department will provide the specified documentation, since another SAMIC was registered in 2020, compared to the legitimate SAMIC which was registered in 2015; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details of the (a) registration documents of the two SAMIC organisations that his department funded and (b)(i) proof of address, (ii) tax clearance certificate and (iii) bank confirmation letter in each specified case?

Reply:

1. The Department was not aware of any agreement between the Department of Trade and Industry with SAMIC.

This challenge is largely due to the lack of a centralised Government wide database of defaulting beneficiaries, so that we are able to identify and isolate them until they comply with all prescripts of the contracts without fail.

SAMIC is national, legal and autonomous body, comprised of members from music industry organisations that represent different constituencies. It is the sole voice and umbrella body for the entire South African music industry role-players, Established in 2014. The South African Music Industry Council (SAMIC) aims to transform protect and preserve the South African music market, assets and legacy.

a) The Department agreed to fund the recent SAMIC Conference held in April 2021. The decision by the Department to provide financial support was due to the following:

  • The fragmentation within the arts and culture sector has contributed to its underdevelopment in terms of unified policy development and direction.
  • The sector has not realised its full potential to effectively contribute to social development and initiative
  • The music industry in particular has evolve as a result of fourth industrial revolution and its impact has affected the South African music industry,
  • The legislative framework governing the music industry is out dated and requires to be updated in order to respond to the demands of the digitalisation in the industry.

The initiative by SAMIC to position itself as an umbrella body within the music industry is commendable and it is in line with the overall mandate of the Department.

b) SAMIC approached the Department requesting funding to host a national conference in January 2021 and provided a project proposal, a compliancy documents namely; company registration, tax certificate, entity form with a certified bank stamp,

2. The Department is able to provide all documents received from SAMIC,

a) The Department funded SAmic with the Registration Number: 150-953 NPO. -Registered in terms of the Non-profit Organisation Act, 1997, Act no 71 and we are not aware of another SAMIC formed in 2015.

b) Attached as (Annexure A) are documents received from SAMIC as per the question request.

Whether he has found that his department is ignoring the findings of the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition concerning the SA Music Industry Council that breached the Memorandum of Agreement, and therefore signalling that government departments are not working together and/or undermining each department’s authority; if not, what is the basis for such, where public funds are irregularly spent without accountability or even an attempt to recoup the funds; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

Internally, the Department’s Legal Unit has initiated a recovery process and black listing of defaulters.

However, upon approving the grant, the Department entered into a contractual agreement with SAMIC stipulating terms and conditions of the funds dispersed to ensure that they will be used to achieve the intended purpose.

Luthuli, Mr BN to ask the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture

In light of the composition of Team South Africa at the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics, what steps (a) has the Government taken to ensure that in future events of a similar nature, the South African national teams will represent the demographic composition of the South African population and the transformative spirit of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, and (b) is the Government taking to assist talented young persons from disadvantaged backgrounds and previously excluded populations to prepare and train to represent the Republic in international Olympics competitions?

Reply:

The Department recognizes that access to participation opportunities cannot be realized without provision of sporting facilities at the community level and at the school sport which both will act as feeders. The transformation of sport requires a multi-pronged approach which has fundamentals embedded in the lower level of participation to maximize access.

Whilst recognizing that provision of sport facilities is primarily a Constitutional Responsibility of Municipalities, the Department with its limited financial resources has over the years been providing multi-sport courts particularly in schools, community gyms and play parks.

This we believe will contribute significantly in the transformation of sport in all sporting codes to reflect the demographics of our society.

Notwithstanding the fact that talent identification, athlete development and athlete preparation is the responsibility of the Federations at National. Provincial and Local Level, the Department has been implementing the Schools Sport Programme. Through the MoU with DBE, the Department has been able to fully implement its part of the MoU i.e. deliver the school sport district tournaments, assist learners to participate at the provincial and national school sport championships. Annually we assist about 2500 schools with the equipment and attire. We also provide teachers responsible for School Sport with capacity building programmes in various skills like Sport coaching, administration and first aid.

The Department also has a Club Development Programme. This programme is meant to ensure that there is a structured process to support the community leagues in the provinces which are implemented with the Sport Federations.

In addition to these interventions the Department has been implementing the Athlete Support Programme.

Athletes supported through the scientific support programme seeks to provide dedicated support to identified talented athletes identified by National Federations to reach their optimal performance.

Athletes are also supported through the Provincial Sports Academies by providing dedicated support to talented athletes who are at a provincial level with the potential of progressing to national level of the through high performance sport system.

In addition, athletes are supported through the Sports Bursary programme which targets 50 athletes a year. While the number of athletes seems to be miniscule for any meaningful impact to be made, the reality is that as new intakes enter the programme, others exit on having completed Grade 12. Support is given to athletes who have been identified by different Sport Federations during the National School Sport Championships and then placed into Sport focus schools. The support provides R100 000 per athlete per year from Grade 8-12 for 5 years. Support is provided in particular, to previously disadvantaged individuals (women and athletes with disabilities) remains critical in Governments endeavour to achieve transformation in sport.

NELSON MANDELA METRO

  1. 13 November 2018 Raymond Mhlaba Sports Centre.
  2. 14 November 2018 Port Elizabeth City Hall.
  3. 20 November 2018 Uitenhage Town Hall.

BUFFALO CITY

  1. 19 November 2010 King Williamstown Town Hall.
  2. 21 November 2019 Berlin Town Hall.
  3. 26 November 2019 East London City Hall.

OBJECTIONS TO THE NAME CHANGES

Objections that were received were for Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality names as community members that lodged objections argued that the processes of public consultations were inadequate, and some were unhappy with change of name of Port Elizabeth to Gqeberha. The main objections were for renaming of Port Elizabeth to Gqeberha.

The Eastern Cape Provincial Geographical Names Committee’s Objections Committee subsequently sat for Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality in 2019 and found the objections to be baseless as the consultation processes were thorough and Gqeberha was for the popular choice.

In relation to Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality, objection was for East London, and for East London Airport, new names were submitted being Steve Biko Airport, King Hintsa Airport and Chief Phato Airport.

The Eastern Cape Provincial Geographical Names Committee subsequently sat for Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality and processes were found to be sufficiently consulted in relation to Qonce, Ntabozuko and King Phalo Airport. However, in relation to East London, the name of Gompo was found to be problematic as there was already a settlement with that name in the city. A new name has to be agreed upon, and the ECPGNC is ceased with this task.

(1).   Whether his department has reviewed the mandate of loveLife since its inception; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) what are the reasons that (a) his department continues to fund loveLife despite it has not having achieved its strategic objectives (details furnished) for over 10 years and (b) Love life is organising sport events given that sport is not its core mandate?

Reply:

(1).   loveLife responded to indicate that having consulted the then Department of Sport and Recreation SA, the mandate of loveLife was reviewed in 2010.

From 2011, the loveLife mandate included the assistance the department in encouraging recreation at community and school level (for the schools not part of the Schools Sport Programme) by having loveLife ground-BREAKERs (youth implementers) organise sport and recreational activities that encompass youth health messaging to foster behavioural change among young people to steer them away from risky behaviour like alcohol abuse, gangsterism, violence, etc. and also encourage physical activity as a way to combat non-communicable diseases that are made worse by inactivity.

(2)(a). The strategic objectives referred to were from the inception of the organisation in 1999 to the 2010. These objectives ended with the “love to be there” campaign that was run by loveLife to encourage young people to be part of the history-making 2010 World Cup that was hosted by South Africa. A study done in 2012 shows that loveLife did achieve their strategic objective in that period which was to respond to the number of youth contracting HIV by increasing knowledge as that was what loveLife’s mandate was based on, the increased knowledge among young people about HIV, and all Sexual and Reproductive and Health related information. (SRHR)

(2)(b). The NSRP strategic outcomes advocates for the department to take a lead with regard to the implementation of the Mass Participation related programmes. As an active nation pillar, this programme is implemented together with the Federations and other NGO’s whose mandate is aligned to the strategic objectives of the department. The partnership with loveLife and NGO has been revised to ensure that it aligns to the mandate of the department. Of critical importance to this partnership, is the fact that loveLife mainly targets the Youth in school and out-of-school, to address among others, lifeskills and health and behavioural aspects. To do this they have a programme groundBREAKERS, who are themselves, young people who help deliver the programme. These groundBREAKERS, are skilled both in lifeskills and coaching, with the aim of ensuring that they can use sport to communicate positive value to the youth.

This loveLife as a strategic partner of DSAC, forms part of the NGO’s that are able to work with the Sport Stakeholders to roll-out sport and recreation activities in their centres.

Whether, with regard to the National Arts Council Act, Act 56 of 1997, which requires public participation in the appointment of members to the governing council of the National Arts Council (NAC), and in light of the fact that his department did not publicise the names of the four new members appointed to the NAC and call for public comment which is irregular, he will follow the proper process and advertise the names of the persons for public comment, as the four new members may not operate as council members without their names having been published and a public participation process having unfolded; if not, why not; if so, on what date will he advertise?

Reply:

The members referred to were appointed to fill the vacancies that were created when other Council members resigned. The four Council members who were appointed to replace those that resigned were part of the process which was presided over by an independent panel. These members were interviewed in public, their names were published for public to comment, and no objections were received against them.

The names of Council members who replaced those that resigned are Ms Linda Mvanana, Ms Layla Swart, and Ms Marion Mbina-Mthembu. There is no additional legal requirement that these members’ names be published for public comments. The appointment of these members was made in terms of section 4 of the National Arts Council Act, as amended, and as such, they are not precluded from operating as Council members.

Due to the challenges of the National Arts Council and the fact that it is currently facing legal challenges, the Minister decided to appoint one additional Council member (Advocate Steve Kekana) who has legal expertise to join the Council of the National Arts Council to boost the legal capacity of Council.

Reply:

(a). What are the processes for administering the fund?

Department administration:

The department administers the R10 million allocated to BASA for three years through a Memorandum of Agreement. R3 million was distributed in 2020/21, R5 million in 2021/22 and R2 million in 2022/23 with each amount distributed in tranches quarterly following submission of the progress report to the department. This administration is coupled with meetings with BASA and monitoring the process by the Project Manager.

As a requirement, BASA submits a detailed annual report with expenditure to the departments regarding the debut fund programme.

BASA’s administration:

  1. Participation in immersion workshops and activities including submission of tasks.
  2. Adjudication and selection of submissions by an external panel.
  3. Announcement and communication to participants.
  4. Mentorship and Participant support by Mentor/Facilitators and Provincial Liaisons (2 per province).
  5. A final list of recipients whose documents have all been submitted, as well as the relevant documents for each individual is sent to the BASA Accounts department.
  6. Accounts verifies that all documents have been submitted. These include: ID Copy, Proof of banking, SARS tax Registration and signed agreement.
  7. A payment schedule is drawn up for each province and sent to BASA’s Finance Manager (FM) for review.
  8. BASA’s FM verifies each recipient's banking details and ID numbers with the bank. Once details are verified, the payment schedule is sent to BASA’s Head of Programmes, CEO and a Board representative, usually the deputy chair or the chairperson. Each must review the schedules and sign for approval.
  9. Once they have all signed, payments are then loaded and released from the bank.
  10. All signed payment schedules and proof of payments are filed accordingly.

Key to note: Participants receive 70% of their grants at the beginning. They are required to participate in the activities of the next phase and to submit a report on the first tranche. Once this has been reviewed, they then receive the 30% balance. Report includes the narrative as well as the expenditure component.
