        achievement.

                  COUNTRIES OBSERVE WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY



                           (Draft Resolution)



The CHIEF WHIP OF THE MAJORITY PARTY: Speaker, I move without

notice:



  That the House –



  (1) notes that on 5 October 2009 South Africa joined other

      countries around the world to observe World Teachers’ Day,

      honouring the role and importance of teachers in our society;



  (2) acknowledges the critical role teachers play in the

      development of our society through the inculcation in our

      children of the values enshrined in our Constitution, and in

      particular ubuntu/Batho values and principles;



  (3) recognises the key role of the Department of Education and

      provincial education departments in improving the professional

      teaching as a profession;
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 10 of 149


  (4) welcomes the latest initiative by the Department of Education

      to implement a new initiative from 2010 that will reduce the

      commitment to enhance the professional status of our

      educators;



  (5) further welcomes the initiatives of our President to meet with

      school principals as an act of decisive leadership shown by a

      leader who genuinely cares about the future of our children,

  (6) declares our support to the thousands of educators in our

      public and private schools who continue to carry out their

      duties with dignity and commitment, despite the difficult

      circumstances under which many of them work.



Agreed to.



                     CELEBRATING WORLD HABITAT DAY



                          (Draft Resolution)



The CHIEF WHIP OF THE MAJORITY PARTY: Speaker, I move without

notice:
13 OCTOBER 2009                             PAGE: 11 of 149


  That the House –



  (1)   notes that on Monday, 5 October 2009, countries across the

        world including South Africa observed World Habitat Day

        under the theme ―Planning our Urban Future‖;



  (2)   further notes that the purpose of this annual celebration is

        to reflect on the state of towns and cities and their

        capacity to meet their citizen’s social, economic, spiritual

        and moral needs;



  (3)   acknowledges the Habitat Scroll of Honour Award bestowed by

        the United Nations agency for human settlements on Gauteng

        for their outstanding efforts in upgrading housing, social

        and physical infrastructure for the people of Alexandra

        through the Alexandra Renewal Project;



  (4)   further acknowledges that the Habitat Scroll of Honour Award

        is the most prestigious human settlements award in the world

        and its aim is to acknowledge initiatives which have made

        outstanding contributions in areas such as shelter

        provision, highlighting the plight of the homeless and

        developing and improving the human settlements and the

        quality of urban life; and
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 12 of 149


  (5)   commends the Gauteng Department of Local Government and

        Human Settlements on their achievement.



Agreed to.



                     GLOBAL EDUCATION CAMPAIGN



                        (Member’s Statement)



Ms N GINA (ANC): Speaker, the ANC-led government believes that

everyone has a right to basic education, including adult education.

Hence, on Tuesday, 6 October 2009, President Jacob Zuma, on behalf

of South Africa, joined world leaders in supporting the global

campaign contributing to the promotion of education for all

children.



President Zuma said that it was sad that the fundamental right to

education was still denied to millions of children. The number one

goal, Education for All, is a campaign meant to ensure that 75

million children not in schools across the globe, half of whom live

in Africa, get access to classrooms, teachers and proper education.



The campaign is also aimed at ensuring that the 2010 Fifa World Cup

leaves a lasting legacy in education. Heads of state agreed to

spending the following year working towards a breakthrough in global
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 13 of 149


education, funding and making education a legacy of the 2010 Fifa

World Cup in Africa and poor regions around the world.



The ANC-led government remains committed to insuring that every

child receives proper education, which is one of the five key

priorities of the ANC-led government for the next five-year period.



Thank you.



             MINISTERIAL DISCRETION IN MINING INDUSTRY



                        (Member’s Statement)



Mr H C SCHMIDT (DA): Speaker, South Africa should, in the interests

of its mining sector, remove excessive ministerial discretion from

its mining laws. Owing to South Africa’s laws, the country is

internationally perceived as an uncertain investment destination.



The international Fraser Institute’s research survey has ranked

South Africa 49th out of 79 mining jurisdictions on its policy

potential index, down from position 27 in 2002. The only African

countries that ranked lower than South Africa were the Democratic

Republic of Congo, DRC, in 63rd place and Zimbabwe in 65th place.



From an African perspective, Botswana and Ghana have removed all

ministerial discretion in that if licence requirements are met the
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 14 of 149


licence is awarded without the application of further discretion. In

Nigeria the mining industry has access to a mining cadastre to

ensure a more open and transparent process.



As stated by a member of the International Bar Association at a

resent mining indaba held in Madrid, the opportunity lost to South

Africa was huge, causing countries less important from a mining

perspective to develop their mining sector at a faster rate than

South Africa.



While current mining legislations concerned have opened up South

Africa’s mining sector and promoted Black Economic Empowerment, BEE,

the wide administrative discretion as well as uncertainty in a

related framework discouraged investment, which resulted in BEE

opportunities being lost. Black Economic Empowerment has benefited

only a small group of elite, displaying aspects of crony capitalism.



We need to address urgently the legal requirements giving rise to

this perception. I thank you. [Applause.]



   CONDUCT OF MINISTER OF CO-OPERATIVE GOVERNANCE AND TRADITIONAL

                              AFFAIRS



                        (Member’s Statement)



Mr D A KGANARE (Cope): Speaker, this House has a right to know if:
13 OCTOBER 2009                              PAGE: 15 of 149


 The hon Minister of Co-operative Governance and Traditional

 Affairs had deliberately misled the South African people by

 announcing that arrangements had been made with the Independent

 Electoral Commission for them, the residents of Moutse, to vote in

 a referendum.



This is exactly how the South African Broadcasting Corporation,

SABC, reported the hon Minister in its news broadcast on 28

September 2009. The report went on to say that according to the hon

Minister the voters’ roll from the April elections would be used.



Cope asked if the hon Minister deliberately lied to the people of

South Africa. Two days later, on 30 September 2009, the hon Minister

was once again quoted on SABC making a very baffling statement that

the process is not a referendum, and that the people’s choice would

have an impact on the Cabinet’s decision.



It is inconceivable that the Independent Electoral Commission could

have conducted anything other than a proper referendum. For some

reason, the IEC was prevented from announcing the results. There is

prima facie evidence that the hon Minister knowingly misled the

country.



Under the circumstances, he should do the honourable thing and

resign. Failure on his part to do so will require the President to
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 16 of 149


fire him from his post if the President really supports good

governance. [Time expired.] [Applause.]



The SPEAKER: There will of course be an opportunity for ministerial

responses.



                  GENDER TESTING ON CASTER SEMENYA



                        (Member’s Statement)



Mr B M KOMPHELA (ANC): Speaker, the ANC rejects, with contempt, the

latest move by the ... [Interjections.]



The SPEAKER: Hon members on my right, can you please reduce the

volume, or better still, turn it off.



Mr B M KOMPHELA (ANC): ... International Association of Athletics

Federations, IAAF, to formulate a definition of a female. This is

the latest attempt in sustaining the degrading and humiliating

treatment the world’s women 800m champion, Caster Semenya, has been

subjected to.



The IAAF is on record as saying that nowhere in the world of sport

does such a definition exist. In fact, international sports

federations for cricket, rugby, tennis and soccer do not define

their athletes along these lines. Furthermore, the IAAF stated that
13 OCTOBER 2009                                  PAGE: 17 of 149


the formulation of such a definition would take more than a year to

finalise.



The question is, where does this leave Caster Semenya, after a cloud

of suspicion has been placed on her by the IAAF? The ANC, therefore,

calls on the IAAF to extend an unconditional apology to the people

of South Africa, the government, and Caster Semenya for their

despicable treatment and handling of this matter.



If the IAAF fails to do so, then we are not going to welcome this

matter on the agenda any longer. Furthermore, the IAAF must

withdraw, with immediate effect, any attempt to release the so-

called results for gender testing. [Time expired.]



            READINESS TO AVERT TERRORIST ATTACKS ON HOME SOIL



                          (Member’s Statement)



Mr V B NDLOVU (IFP): Speaker, the IFP finds these comments by

Hussein Solomon alarming, not only because of the National

Intelligence Agency, NIA, still spying on the so-called ―enemies‖ -

political parties not aligned with the ruling party and journalists

uncovering ruling party secrets - but because there has been

evidence of a real, credible terrorist threat, which is suspected to

have led to the closure of the United States of America’s government

facilities last month and this morning.
13 OCTOBER 2009                                 PAGE: 18 of 149


What is even more perturbing is that the International Criminal

Police Organisation, Interpol, has allegedly warned the SA

Intelligence Service about the potential threat, but it seems that

the South African government is not taking any advice or the threat

seriously.



While we have received reassurance from the SAPS that the 2010 Fifa

World Cup will be a success from a security perspective, the IFP

believes that government owes the public answers as to why an

Interpol warning of a possible terrorist threat has seemingly been

ignored.



Furthermore, we need the assurance that the NIA and the newly

established SA Secret Service, Sass, have the capacity and expertise

to deal with a potential terrorist threat. The IFP will also

approach the Joint Standing Committee on Intelligence to request an

urgent briefing by the new Director-General of NIA, Lizo Gibson

Njenje, as well as the leader of the SA Secret Service, Mo Shaik, on

South Africa’s readiness to avert a potential terrorist attack on

home soil. Somlomo.



             TENDER PROCESS FOR “WHO AM I” ONLINE PROJECT



                         (Member’s Statement)
13 OCTOBER 2009                                   PAGE: 19 of 149


Mr J J MC GLUWA (ID): Speaker, the Independent Democrats calls upon

Home Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to release the forensic

audit report on the tender process for the R2,5 billion ―Who am I‖

online project. The cost of the project, which was awarded to a

consortium headed by GijimaAst in October 2007, has since jumped

from R1,9 billion to R2,5 billion. The Auditor-General’s report to

the Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs last year proves there was a

high possibility that there were irregularities in the allocation of

the tender.



One year later we have still not heard anything about the outcome of

the forensic audit, and I find it very difficult to believe that it

could take more than one year to uncover the truth. The Smart Card

tender is yet another clinical example of this. The ―Who am I‖

online project has the potential to make the department’s process

faster and reduce corruption. The longer the Minister and the

department remain silent, the more obvious it becomes that there is

a cover up. I thank you.



                     NEW OIL REFINERY IN COEGA



                           (Member’s Statement)



Mr S M PILLAY (ANC): Speaker, as a mass-based organisation that is

rooted among its people, reaching into every corner of this land,

the African National Congress has the capacity and the capability to
13 OCTOBER 2009                               PAGE: 20 of 149


bring all stakeholders together to make them work together to make

change happen faster.



This ANC-led government welcomes the signing, on Tuesday, 6 October

2009, of the memorandum of understanding between Coega Development

Corporation and PetroSA. This memorandum of understanding will lead

to the development of a new oil refinery in the deep water port of

Coega, and it will be a stimulus and a catalyst for future change

and future development in the Eastern Cape.



This refinery will inject not millions but billions of rands, and it

will create 27 500 jobs during the construction phase and 18 500

permanent jobs, direct and indirect, and induced jobs during its

operational phase. The planned refinery will be a major economic

boost to the Eastern Cape. It will help with diversification in an

economy that is totally dependent on the motor industry.



It will result in the reskilling of our people, the upskilling of

our artisans and a huge economic boost for the area. This further

justifies the establishment of the Coega port. Many sceptics were

worried that the investment might become a white elephant.



The ANC-led government commends PetroSA and the Coega Development

Corporation for the signing of this memorandum of understanding and

hope that they will work speedily through conditions towards the
13 OCTOBER 2009                                 PAGE: 21 of 149


establishment of this port, including the environmental assessment.

Thank you. [Applause.]



          RECKLESS SHOOTING BY POLICE ON UNARMED CIVILIANS



                         (Member’s Statement)

Rev K R J MESHOE: Speaker, the ACDP regrets the unnecessary loss of

lives at the hands of the police. We want to express our condolences

to the Kekana family at the loss of their daughter, Olga, who was

allegedly mistakenly shot dead by the police. We also wish the other

passengers who were wounded a speedy recovery.



While the ACDP supports the right of the police to use fire power

when confronted by armed criminals and when their lives are in

danger, we do not support recklessness or a trigger-happy attitude.

It is wrong for the police to shoot to kill unarmed civilians who

are not threatening them. There is no excuse for firing 13 gunshots

at people who are not shooting back or resisting arrest.



We call on the Minister to investigate claims by the South African

Air Force pilot, Captain Simon Mathibela, that in spite of his

attempts to wave his military document to stop the attack the police

allegedly continued firing and that, after shooting them, the police

stopped for a few seconds and then left the occupants to die. We

further call on the Minister to ensure that the police are properly
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 22 of 149


trained in target shooting so that they will be able to hit tyres

and not unarmed passengers. Thank you.



                   SERVICE DELIVERY IN STANDERTON



                        (Member’s Statement)



Ms C N Z ZIKALALA (IFP): Hon Speaker, the IFP is extremely concerned

about the recent shocking images of service delivery unrest that

have erupted in Standerton. Over the past years there have been many

violent protests and this trend seems to be growing. These acts of

intense lawlessness by South Africa’s poorest citizens are

potentially very damaging to society and could, for instance, be

extremely embarrassing during 2010.



Residents in Standerton have alleged that they are frustrated by the

failure of the province to act on a forensic report showing fraud,

corruption and maladministration within the local council. We are

therefore asking all relevant authorities to listen carefully to the

voices of the poor, and accordingly address the legitimate concerns

of the protesters. This means fewer PowerPoint presentations and

more community meetings. The onus will always be on the government

to prove that it has improved the pace of service delivery and that

it has involved the masses in the decision-making that will affect

their lives. I thank you.

                     PUBLIC TRANSPORT SERVICES



                         (Member’s Statement)



Ms P C NGWENYA-MABILA (ANC): Hon Speaker, the ANC-led government

believes in forming partnerships with relevant stakeholders in order

to promote safe and affordable public transport as a social service.



On Wednesday, 30 September 2009, emerging taxi operators received a

major breakthrough when banking group Absa and the Industrial

Development Corporation, IDC, announced a R300 million deal to boost

the industry. Absa has undertaken to provide money to fund emerging

taxi operators and black entrepreneurs wishing to enter this highly

competitive industry. The arrangement will also allow taxi operators

to scrap their old taxis in favour of legal and compliant minibus

taxis.



The ANC supports this initiative and sees it as part and parcel of

accelerating the implementation of the Taxi Recapitalisation

Project, which is about the improvement of the quality, safety and

sustainability of this crucial component of public transport. I

thank you. [Applause.]



                     AGRI SA’S ANNUAL CONGRESS



                         (Member’s Statement)
13 OCTOBER 2009                              PAGE: 24 of 149


Mr P J C PRETORIUS (DA): Mr Speaker, Agri SA held its annual

congress in Johannesburg last week. Agriculture is a huge industry

in South Africa contributing 3% to South Africa’s gross domestic

product, GDP. It is estimated that up to 8,5 million people are

directly or indirectly dependent on agriculture for employment and

income.



A central theme that ran through discussions was the absolute

commitment of the commercial farming community to provide sufficient

food for our people. In order to do that, farmers need the support

of government in many respects. Various constraints to realising the

goal of food security were, however, highlighted. Uncertainty with

regard to tenure as a result of chaotic land redistribution, land

claims, problems with water licensing, high input costs, cheap

imports and stock theft were, inter alia, highlighted.



Die een kritieke en onverskoonbare belemmering vir boere en

plaasbewoners is die aanvalle en moorde op ons plase. Dis haas

onmoontlik om betroubare regeringstatistieke in die hande te kry,

maar volgens Agri SA se eie statistieke is daar elke maand minstens

60 plaasaanvalle en sterf minstens 10 mense in daardie aanvalle. Dit

gebeur op die wreedaardigste maniere denkbaar. Die DA wil die

regering van ons volle samewerking verseker in enige sinvolle poging

om landelike veiligheid te verbeter.
13 OCTOBER 2009                              PAGE: 25 of 149


Ter afsluiting wil ek sê dat die kongres groot waardering gehad het

vir die bydrae en gesindheid van agb minister Joemat-Pettersson, en

dat kommersiële landbou vir ’n slag opgewonde is oor opbouende

samewerking met die regering. Die DA bedank haar vir daardie

gesindheid en wil haar verseker dat sy op ons ondersteuning kan

staatmaak as sy voortgaan om landbou pragmaties te bestuur, eerder

as ideologies polities, soos die geval voorheen was en wat die

bedryf groot skade berokken het. Ek dank u. [Applous.] (Translation

of Afrikaans paragraphs follows.)



[The one crucial and inexcusable obstacle for farmers and farm

dwellers is the attacks and murders on our farms. It is practically

impossible to acquire reliable government statistics, but according

to the statistics of Agri SA there are at least 60 farm attacks per

month and during these attacks at least 10 people are killed. It

occurs in the most brutal manner imaginable. The DA wants to assure

the government of our full support in any meaningful attempt to

improve rural safety.



In conclusion I want to say that the congress had great appreciation

for the contribution and disposition of the hon Minister Joemat-

Petterson, and that this time commercial farming is excited about

constructive cooperation with the government. The DA thanks her for

that disposition and wants to assure her that she can depend on our

support if she continues to manage agriculture pragmatically, rather
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 26 of 149


than in terms of political ideology, as was done in the past and

which caused great harm to the industry. I thank you. [Applause.]]



                  CALL FOR POLICE TO SHOOT TO KILL



                        (Member’s Statement)



Mr M E GEORGE (Cope): Hon Speaker, the shoot-to-kill encouragement

to police, began by hon Susan Shabangu during her stint as the

Deputy Minister of Safety and Security, has claimed its first

innocent victim. The Minister of Police and the hon President must

also fully share the blame as they have repeated this irresponsible

call for police to shoot to kill.



A woman was killed and two others were wounded in Mabopane on Sunday

when members of the flying squad shot at a car which they alleged

did not stop when ordered to do so. The President and his Minsters

are in this instance usurping the right of Parliament to make laws.

They are also actively inciting the police to ignore section 49 of

the Criminal Procedure Act and to murder at their discretion.



Citizens harassed and tormented by criminals might understandably

think that government is on the right path here. This is not so.

This is only irresponsible chauvinism. It is always through small

and seemingly innocuous steps that the subversion of the

Constitution begins. The ANC is putting our country on a slippery
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 27 of 149


slope to perdition. Cope most definitely demands action against

criminals, but only through legal means. The executive cannot make

its own laws. This will lead to a constitutional crisis. We cannot

afford that, and we must not allow it.



Finally, we wish to extend our heartfelt condolences to the next of

kin of the slain woman. This House must hold government accountable

for encouraging members of the police to act outside the

Constitution and the law. I thank you. [Applause.]



                  ANTIRETROVIRAL THERAPY TREATMENT



                        (Member’s Statement)



Ms P TSHWETE (ANC): Speaker, the ANC-led government is confident

that through collective action we will be able to achieve the target

we set to reduce the rate of new HIV infections by 50% and expand

access to appropriate treatment, care and support to 80% of all HIV-

positive people by 2011. As such, a new international report

released on Wednesday, 30 September 2009, by the World Health

Organisation, the United Nations Children’s Fund and the Joint

United Nations Programme on HIV and Aids has indicated that South

Africa’s HIV and Aids programmes are starting to show major signs of

advancement in the area of antiretroviral treatment.
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 28 of 149


The report said one of the most notable achievements was that the

number of patients undergoing antiretroviral therapy, ART, has

almost doubled between 2007 and 2008. It is further noted that the

prevention of mother-to-child transmission, PMTCT, services were

available to over 50% of those in need.



The ANC-led government is encouraged by recent progress made and

will continue to strengthen the nationwide partnership against HIV

and Aids and expand access to a comprehensive programme of treatment

and care in public health facilities. I thank you.



                    SHOOTING PRACTICE FOR POLICE



                        (Member’s Statement)



Mr M WATERS (DA): Speaker, a reply to a parliamentary question

regarding the lack of shooting practice received by police members

stationed at police stations throughout my constituency of Kempton

Park, Edenvale, is alarming. According to the Minister of Police,

the minimum shooting practice required for police members is once a

year for low-risk category members and at least two shooting

practices per year for medium-risk category members.



However, last year only 23% of all police members received firearm

shooting practice, and this year the figure is a dismal 25%. This

means that only one in four police members received the minimum
13 OCTOBER 2009                                 PAGE: 29 of 149


required training. In April 2008, the then Deputy Minister of

Police, Susan Shabangu, urged police officers to shoot to kill, and

the current National Police Commissioner has echoed the same

sentiments, yet the ANC government dismally fails to ensure that

police officers can actually shoot accurately. What hypocrites!



When 75% of the SAPS members are not undergoing firearm shooting

practice and are failing to meet the SAPS’ own minimum standards, we

have trigger-happy politicians encouraging police members to shoot

to kill. These politicians are not only paying lip service to the

public’s emotions, but are failing our citizens, especially our men

and women in blue, whose lives are being endangered as this ANC

government places pressure on them to shoot to kill, yet fails to

ensure that our police officers are actually trained to shoot. I

thank you. [Applause.]



                             WATER INDABA



                         (Member’s Statement)



Mr P M MATHEBE (ANC): Speaker, the ANC-led government is deeply

concerned about the impact of climate change on South Africa; more

accurately, the severe predictions on the reduction in rainfall and

increase in droughts on the western side of the country.
13 OCTOBER 2009                              PAGE: 30 of 149


The government feels that this will exacerbate water scarcity and

have potentially devastating effects on agricultural production as

well as on the survival of the Cape’s floral kingdom and our

country’s priceless biodiversity.



Mpumalanga is already faced with vast water-related challenges such

as pollution and lack of access to water resources by certain

communities. As a result, last Tuesday, 6 October 2009, the

Department of Water and Environmental Affairs conducted a water

indaba in Nelspruit with the purpose of tackling the immediate and

long-term water problems affecting that province and to come up with

a detailed action plan that would speed up the process of service

delivery in the province.



Another important purpose of that water indaba was to get a

comprehensive understanding of the challenges facing water supply

and water management in the country, so as to come up with an

integrated approach towards service delivery; hence the theme

―Working together for water security and poverty alleviation‖.



The ANC-led government will continue to proactively build capacity

and develop a comprehensive strategy to adapt to the inevitable

impacts of climate change, including the roll out of basic services,

infrastructure planning, agricultural diversity and water resource

management. I thank you. [Applause.]

                     GLOBAL EDUCATION CAMPAIGN



                          (Minister’s Response)



The MINISTER OF HIGHER EDUCATION AND TRAINING: Speaker, I just want

to respond to and agree with the statement made by the hon member

about the importance of education and the commitment of our

President and government to decent education for all.



Last week I was part of a government delegation to the United

Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, Unesco,

and in our main message there we, amongst other things, called for

the world to support our One Goal campaign during the 2010 World Cup

in support of education, we also welcomed Unesco’s very important

commitment to promoting education as a public common good in which

government must play a leading role, working together with other

important stakeholders.



I also wish to underline the statement made by the President at the

United Nations General Assembly that we must not use the current

recession to renege on our social commitments. To that effect, our

own government has committed itself that despite the challenges of

the recession we want to maintain our commitment to the resources

that must be put into education because, in our view, investment in

education, as Unesco also says, is not a deduction from development
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 32 of 149


but, instead, a necessary condition for building and developing a

more just global economic order. Thank you. [Applause.]



                     PUBLIC TRANSPORT SERVICES



                       (Minister’s Response)



The DEPUTY MINISTER OF TRANSPORT: Speaker, I would like to thank my

comrades from the ANC branches who reminded us that October is

transport month, and who then also dealt with the matter of the Absa

R300 million contribution to the taxi industry. You see, that ...

no, no! Let me not go there. [Laughter.]



The SPEAKER: Continue, hon Deputy Minister. Hon members, please

allow the Deputy Minister to proceed with his reply.



The DEPUTY MINISTER OF TRANSPORT: No, no! They can raise whatever

issue they like.



This government is committed to improving public transport. This is

a big challenge, and at the heart of it is indeed the transformation

of the minibus sector — transport for the majority of South

Africans. Unlike many of their constituents, the majority of our

constituents depend on public transport for some kind of mobility.

[Interjections.] Less than 50% of South African households have any

access whatsoever to vehicles and private cars. Therefore, we need
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 33 of 149


to understand the importance of the month of October and the

importance of popularising public transport.



We are making significant progress — this is also important to

mention. What has happened in recent weeks? Many will remember that

there were threats against the Bus Rapid Transit, the Rea Vaya

system in Johannesburg, from the minibus sector. We have managed to

launch that. The City of Cape Town is also trying to launch the Bus

Rapid Transit, BRT, and will depend on our support as the ANC in

order to succeed in that respect. They will also depend on the ANC

government in order to succeed in dealing with the minibus sector,

which is a very complicated sector.



Our approach is not to abolish the minibus sector. It is part and

parcel of going forward, but at the same time it has to transform. I

think that is the key message from the ANC government on the

occasion of the October public transport month. [Applause.]



                  CALL FOR POLICE TO SHOOT TO KILL



                    SHOOTING PRACTICE FOR POLICE



          RECKLESS SHOOTING BY POLICE ON UNARMED CIVILIANS



                       (Minister’s Response)
13 OCTOBER 2009                              PAGE: 34 of 149


The DEPUTY MINISTER OF POLICE: Speaker, firstly, I want to deal with

the instruction to shoot to kill. This buzz phrase has been quite

attractive and has been used by many people who have not sought to

engage with regard to the substance of it. The idea is not to shoot

to kill recklessly, but to shoot to kill armed and dangerous

criminals in defence of the innocent.



Criminals have been merciless in killing innocent people and

innocent policemen. Last year, we lost 105 policemen and women in

combat, in defence of the innocent. In the Western Cape we have lost

two unarmed community policing forum, CPF, members. We have also

lost a police captain, and throughout all this we have not heard

people shouting at the top of their voices. All that we hear is that

crime is politically convenient for some people. We can only win the

war against crime if we act in unity.



I agree with the member who said that the police need training and

that they need to sharpen their shooting skills. However, it’s not

like you are usurping the Constitution and running a banana

republic. [Interjections.]



We are amending the law to protect the police and the innocent

people of South Africa by ensuring that we uphold our slogan ―to

serve and protect‖ the innocent people of South Africa. No amount of

petty politicking or fabrication and distortion will derail us from

the mission of winning the war against crime. [Applause.] Crime
13 OCTOBER 2009                                PAGE: 35 of 149


knows no colour and no political affiliation, and some people have

used it for political reasons.



Lastly, in cases where people have been put in harm’s way and where

there have been allegations of police brutality, the Independent

Complaints Directorate, ICD, is there to carry out full

investigations. That will happen today and tomorrow and any other

time when innocent people die in the process of the police executing

their mission. [Time expired.] Thank you very much. [Applause.]



          RECKLESS SHOOTING BY POLICE ON UNARMED CIVILIANS



                    SHOOTING PRACTICE FOR POLICE



                  CALL FOR POLICE TO SHOOT TO KILL



                       (Minister’s Response)



The MINISTER OF HEALTH: Speaker, as a follow-up on what the Deputy

Minister of Safety and Security has said, I just hope the House has

actually noticed the difference between what was said by the two men

who have spoken here. The leader of the ACDP, Rev Meshoe, first and

foremost was concerned and worried about the lives that have been

lost. He started off by expressing condolences and making a

constructive proposal about police training, as the Deputy Minister

has said. The hon member from Cope, ―Editor‖ George ...
13 OCTOBER 2009                              PAGE: 36 of 149


[Interjections.] ... in cold-blooded, unashamed opportunism started

attacking the President, accusing him of destroying the

Constitution. [Interjections.] At the end of his speech, he

remembered that he was a human being and finally threw in

condolences, as an afterthought. So, his aim was to attack the

President.



Let me repeat the fact that the President clearly said that they

must shoot a thug who points a gun at the police. He never beat

about the bush; he was referring to a thug pointing a gun at the

police. If one policeman got careless, that does not justify what

hon George said. He deliberately forgot ... [Interjections.]



The SPEAKER: Hon members, please allow the speaker to be heard.



The MINISTER OF HEALTH: Yes, they cannot swallow the fact that they

have been exposed for what they are. [Interjections.]



The SPEAKER: Hon member, continue.



The MINISTER OF HEALTH: Another policeman lost his life when he was

shot dead trying to shout to a thug to drop his gun. He said nothing

about that. We are interested in health. The Lancet report shows

that we are going through a pandemic of violence perpetrated by

these thugs, which the system can no longer tolerate. I want these

people to be realistic. The President was referring to a thug that
13 OCTOBER 2009                                   PAGE: 37 of 149


is pointing a gun, because when you produce a gun, your intention is

to shoot. [Time expired.] [Applause.]



                  GENDER TESTING ON CASTER SEMENYA



                          (Minister’s Response)




The MINISTER OF CORRECTIONAL SERVICES: Hon Speaker, I want to

comment on the Semenya debacle that continues to haunt all of us as

South Africans. I just think that the time has come for all of us to

actually take responsibility for what happened to that young girl

who was born a girl and whose birth certificate indicates that she

is a girl. All of us should embrace and respect the fact that she is

a girl.



I would like to call on all South Africans to provide all the

support required by this young lady. We should realise that Semenya

has undergone a very traumatic experience, one that none of us would

wish on any of our children. Therefore, the best we can do for

Semenya, rather than continuing with what is written in the media

and the attacks against one another, is to rally our forces and

provide support to her.



The last matter applies to the sporting fraternity - all those who

want to determine the future of our people, and all structures,
13 OCTOBER 2009                                                 PAGE: 38 of 149


including the sporting structure. We should continue to engage on

these matters, so that we can avoid a repetition of what happened to

that young girl. I thank you. [Applause.]

     (a)   Submission of Private Member’s Legislative Proposal



           The following private member's legislative proposal was submitted to the Speaker on 28

           September 2009 in accordance with Rule 234:



           (a) Legislative proposal to amend the Land and Agricultural Development Bank Act, No

              15 of 2002 (Mr P J C Pretorius)



           Referred to the Committee on Private Members’ Legislative Proposals and Special

           Petitions for consideration and report.



      (b) Letter from the Minister of Communications dated 30 September 2009, to the Speaker of

           the National Assembly explaining the delay in the submission of the Annual Report of the

           ICASA for 2008-2009.



           Tabling the written reasons to the National Assembly explaining failure to table the

           Annual Report and Financial Statements of ICASA as required by the PFMA.

           In terms of section 65 (1) of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA), I am required to

           table to the National Assembly, Annual Reports and the Financial Statements in respect of

           each financial year and the audit report on those statements within one month after the
13 OCTOBER 2009                                                PAGE: 111 of 149


       accounting officer for the department or the accounting authority for the public entity

       received the audit report.



       I have recently been informed by ICASA that they will not be able to submit their 2008/09

       Annual Report and Financial Statements within the stipulated time, that would enable me to

       table to the National Assembly before 30 September 2009, citing that;-



       During the discussions held over the past two weeks with the Auditor General’s Gauteng

       office, the Auditor General’s Head Office, National Treasury and Accounting Standards

       Board, it emerged that;-



           ICASA’s 2009 Annual Report should only reflect one set of financial statements and

            not separate financial statements for ICASA Main Account and the administered

            Revenue Account as is currently the case; and

           That the Auditor General Gauteng withdraw its separate audit opinions on the main

            Account and the administered Revenue Fund and issue one opinion on the ICASA

            financial statements.



       ICASA is currently awaiting the National Treasury’s response to their submission

       highlighting that this proposal would contribute to further delays in the finalization of the

       2008/9 Annual Report of ICASA as the revised financial statements would have to be

       redrafted and re-audited by the Auditor General. In light of the above, ICASA has

       requested that the 2009 Financial statements be presented as in prior years and the changes

       requested only be effected as from the 2010 financial year. They have undertaken to revert

       to me by no later than the date of the National Treasury’s response to their submission.

           In compliance with Section 65 (2)(a), I hereby table written reasons of inability to table to

           ICASA within the stipulated time frame.

COMMITTEE REPORTS



National Assembly



1.   First Report of the Committee on Public Accounts on the Report of the Auditor General on

     Performance Audit of Service Delivery at Police Stations and 10111 Call Centres of the South

     African Police Service, dated 16 September 2009



     Background



     The Standing Committee on Public Accounts (SCOPA) heard and considered evidence on the

     Special Performance Audit conducted by the Auditor-General of South Africa (AGSA) on the
13 OCTOBER 2009                                                      PAGE: 116 of 149


   service delivery at Police Stations and 10111 call centres at the South African Police Service

   (SAPS). The report highlighted deficiencies in processes and systems that should be in place at

   police stations and 10111 centres. The following sub-focus areas were identified with regard to

   police stations:

                Sector Policing

                Vehicle Management

                Training

                Community Service Centres

                Domestic Violence

                Bulletproof Vests



   The Committee has reviewed the evidence presented by the Accounting Officer and other

   responsible members of the SAPS at the hearing conducted on the 1st of July 2009. SCOPA

   therefore requests the Accounting Officer to urgently address the following:



   1. Sector Policing



    The Auditor-General reported the following shortcomings:



     Due to lack of an approved policy, there were inconsistencies in the implementation of the

            sector policing and in resource allocation between different police stations.



           The minutes of sector crime forum meetings were not always compiled and as a consequence

            it was not possible to assess whether sector crime forums were functioning as intended.
13 OCTOBER 2009                                                 PAGE: 117 of 149


  The Committee therefore recommends that the Accounting Officer ensures that:



  a) Proper monitoring mechanisms be implemented to ensure consistent utilisation of resources at

     police stations and proper evaluation of the efficacy and implementation of Sector Policing.

  b) Minutes of the sector crime forum be recorded and be used to ensure the proper running of the

     sector crime police forum.

  c) A report on the implementation plan be submitted to the National Assembly within 30 days

     after the adoption of this report by the House.



   2. Vehicle Management



   The Auditor-General reported the following shortcomings:



   That out of the 40 509 vehicles, 13 631 have been equipped with Automated Vehicle Location

   Systems (AVL). The monitoring of the AVL is decentralised but only Gauteng and Western Cape

   have central monitoring systems.



    Instances where operational members did not possess driver’s licences were identified.

    There were instances of control weaknesses with regard to vehicle registers, control over keys

     and controls over garaging authorities which allow members’ private usage of vehicles.

    There were instances of lengthy lead times regarding repairs of vehicles.



   The Committee recommends that the Accounting Officer ensures that:
13 OCTOBER 2009                                                        PAGE: 118 of 149


   a)       Notwithstanding the response from the Department of Police, the Committee recommends

            that AVL on all operational vehicles be implemented during the 2009/10 financial year.

   b)       The backlog in training of operational members without driver’s licences be addressed as a

            priority, its completion date be adhered to and a training report be submitted to the National

            Assembly after the adoption of this report to the House.

   c)       Proper monitoring of vehicles at police stations is implemented to ensure responsible

            authorised usage thereof (also after hours) and disciplinary measures be instituted against

            personnel found to be in contravention of applicable policies and regulations.

   d)       Reliable and timely management information is generated to identify and monitor repairs,

            and reduce the turnaround time.

   e)       A progress report on c) and b) above be submitted to the National Assembly after the

            adoption of this report by the House.



   3.       Training



    The Auditor-General reported the following shortcomings:



              The information available on PERSAP was not accurately updated to reflect all training

               courses attended by members thereby compromising the accuracy of management

               information.

              Also, non-attendance and/or non-completion of certain courses were noted in some

               instances.



    The Committee recommends that the Accounting Officer ensures that:
13 OCTOBER 2009                                                           PAGE: 119 of 149


       a)         All SAPS members be exposed to appropriate training within reasonable time frames.

       b)         All deficiencies identified with the training database be rectified and recorded correctly, as

                  the Committee was concerned by the low levels of members attending training.

       c)         The training budgets must be properly utilised failing which necessary disciplinary

                  measures be instituted against responsible accounting officials.



      4.        Community Service Centres (CSC)



      The Auditor-General reported the following shortcomings:



          The layout of the CSCs as audited did not cater for persons with disabilities.

          Basic infrastructure such as water, electricity, telephones and computers in some police stations

           were not in working condition.

          Proper identification parade rooms did not exist and service charters in relation to the public

           were not conspicuously displayed.

          Holding cells could not be optimally utilised as some were in a state of dilapidation.



      Whilst the committee noted that there were initiatives to improve the situation, it nonetheless

      recommends that the Accounting Officer ensures that:



           a)       The rectification of deficiencies in infrastructure is prioritised to provide access for

                    people with disabilities.

           b)       The rectification of deficiencies in infrastructure and equipment including computers

                    are prioritised and that engagement with all stakeholders (Eskom, Telecom and Local

                    Municipalities) continues as a matter of urgency.
13 OCTOBER 2009                                                 PAGE: 120 of 149


  5. Domestic Violence



  The Auditor-General reported that the obligations imposed by the Domestic Violence Act, 1998

  (Act No. 116 of 1998) and National Instruction 7/1999 were not met. According to the Domestic

  Violence Act and National Instruction 7/1999:



  The Independent Complaints Directorate (ICD) should, every six month, submit a report to

  Parliament regarding the number of and particulars of matters reported to it in terms of subsection

  (4) (a) of the Domestic Violence Act, 1998 (Act No 116 of 1998) and setting out recommendations

  made in respect of such matters.



  The Committee therefore recommends that the Accounting Officer ensures that:



      a)     There is compliance with the stipulations as per the National Instruction and the

             Domestic Violence Act.

      b)     A progress report on Domestic Violence be submitted to the National Assembly after

             the adoption of this report by the House.



  6. Bulletproof Vests



  The Auditor-General reported the following shortcomings:



      Various instances were noted of operational members not being issued with bulletproof vests.

      There were female operational members in one police station who were not issued with

           bulletproof vests.
13 OCTOBER 2009                                                         PAGE: 121 of 149


  The Committee recommends that the Accounting Officer ensures that:



        a)        Appropriate bulletproof vests are issued to all operational members urgently and this

                  includes vests designed for female officers and that the distribution of vests be finalised.

        b)        Where policies are not adhered to, disciplinary action be instituted.



  7. 10111 Call Centres



  The Auditor-General reported the following shortcomings:



        There is no fully functional 10111 call centre in Mpumalanga Province.

        The Gauteng Call Centre which has been identified as a model for the other Provinces has

         deficiencies with regard to reaction talk group (talk groups facilitate communication between

         the 10111 call centre and policing units which fall outside the ambit of the call centre) and the

         utilisation of AVL functionality despite vehicles being equipped with this technology.

        The minimum service level of 90% was not adhered to at 6 of the 9 Call Centres audited.

        The Midrand Centre is equipped with the AVL functionality, however, the said functionality

         is not being utilised despite the fact that 4 038 vehicles are already equipped with AVLs in the

         Gauteng Province.



      The Committee recommends that the Accounting Officer ensures that:



             a)    Call Centres in all Provinces operate according to norms and standards.

             b)    Deficiencies noted with respect to personnel and equipment be addressed.
13 OCTOBER 2009                                                 PAGE: 122 of 149


        c)   Reliable information and statistics are generated to permit proper management and

             monitoring of Call Centre performance.

        d)   Contingency plans in relation to systems failures and damage be drawn up for all

             centres.

        e)   Appropriate training be provided to members at 10111 centres and all resources be

             optimally used and that current training levels are maintained.

        f)   Punitive action be taken against members misusing police vehicles.



   Conclusion



   The Committee noted that after the hearing, the Department of Police National Instruction on

   Sector Policing was approved on the 13 July 2009 and circulated to all Provincial and National

   Commissioners.



   The Committee commends the Department for the speedy response on some of the issues that

   were identified during the hearing and further requests the Department to make sure that policies,

   monitoring controls and procedures that run the day to day activities of the Department are

   adhered to.



   The Committee recommends that the Accounting Officer should submit a report on all the

   recommendations to the National Assembly within 60 days after the adoption of this report by the

   House.
