                                             REPORTING FORM
Note:
1.   The purpose of this Form is for any Mpumalanga Wetland Forum (MWF) member, member of the public or any
     other individual, to report any alleged illegal activity which is having, or is likely to have, a detrimental impact on
     wetlands and/or water resources in Mpumalanga Province.
2.   All the information on this Form needs to be filled in as accurately as possible and forwarded to the relevant
     authorities (green, blue or brown scorpions) (Contact Details Attached) in order for them to follow up on the
     alleged illegal activity. A separate Form needs to be completed for each alleged illegal activity.
3.   This Form is merely a means to assist the MWF and members of the public to report any alleged illegal activities
     which may have a detrimental impact on wetlands or water resources in Mpumalanga. The MWF itself cannot
     instigate any legal action in terms of any alleged illegal activity and is therefore not responsible for following up and
     ensuring that the necessary action is taken against the alleged transgressors. Individuals are therefore required to
     follow up with the relevant authorities regarding any such alleged illegal activities that they reported. The MWF
     cannot therefore be held liable should any of its members (or any member of the public) use this Form to report any
     alleged illegal / unlawful activity, nor can the MWF be held liable if any member of the MWF (or any other member
     of the public) decide to prosecute any alleged offender in their personal capacity.
4.   Please submit this Reporting Form directly to the relevant Compliance and Enforcement Authority (Contact Details
     Provided in Attached Table) as well as send a copy to the Co-ordinator of the MWF Compliance and Monitoring
     Working Group, (Nocawe Mthombothi - DEDET) (Contact Details in Attached Table).
5.   Please also be informed that in addition to reporting any alleged illegal activity to the relevant authorities, any
     individual person has the right to lay personal criminal charges at any South African Police Serves (SAPS) station in
     terms of any alleged illegal or unlawful activity which has been undertaken and which constitutes a criminal act in
     terms of South African law.

If you believe any activity to be having / likely to have an impact on any wetland
and/or water resource(s) and you suspect that it may be unlawful / illegal, please
report it either on the (24 Hour) Environmental Crime Hotline (0800 205 005) or the
Water      Crimes     Hotline    (Toll   Free:   0800     200    200     /    email:
mpumalangacme@dwa.gov.za) or fill out the attached Reporting Form and submit it
to one/more of the relevant compliance authorities (See Attached Contact Details and
Map).
