    PLAN
     FOR
   2007/2012
It is with great pleasure for me to present to you Emfuleni Local Municipality’s Integrated
Development Plan (IDP) for 2007/2012 as a principal strategic planning tool that will be used
to give direction to budget and performance of the municipality.

It is important that we understand that the IDP is a participatory
driven strategic document with a mandate of strengthening the
economy and improving the lives of the people of Emfuleni
irrespective of race, gender, economic circumstances or political
affiliations. It is therefore important that the number and depth of
our sectoral participation is increased. Having said that, all
residents, every business, every community member, non-
governmental organisations, political parties are encouraged to
engage and take part in all IDP related activities. We should be
moving to a direction where a developed IDP will present shared
goals and objectives of all parties irrespective of who is the ruling
party. This IDP takes a strong intervention of the outcomes of Mayoral Lekgotla that was held
at Bakgatla in August 2006.

Vision:
Developmental Municipality that continuously improves the quality of life of its residents

Chapter 1

1.1 POLICY AND LEGISLATIVE CONTEXT

According to the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa (Section 152 and 153) local
government is in charge of the development process in municipalities, and it is in charge of
municipal planning. The constitutional mandate to relate its management, budgeting and
planning functions to its objectives gives a clear indication of the intended purpose of
municipal integrated development planning. The constitution also demands local government
to improve intergovernmental coordination and cooperation to ensure integrated
development across three spheres of government.

White Paper on Local Government gives municipalities responsibility to work with
communities and groups within communities to find sustainable ways to their social,
economic and material needs and improve the quality of their lives.

Municipal Systems Act 32 of 2000 (MSA) defines integrated development planning as one
of the core functions of a municipality in the context of its developmental orientation. MSA
requires the IDP to be strategic and inclusive in nature. The IDP should link, integrate and
coordinate other plans, while taking development proposals into account. It should be aligned
with the municipality’s resources and capacity, while forming policy framework on which
annual budgets are based. The integrated Development Plan must be compatible with
national and provincial development plans and planning requirements.

1.2 MEC’s COMMENTS

In terms of Section 32 of the MSA, the MEC concluded that there is no issue that requires
amendment to the Emfuleni Local Municipality’s (ELM) IDP. Nevertheless, informed by the
issues and commitments that were made in the course of the 2006 IDP engagement
process, and in the spirit of improving intergovernmental coordination and alignment, I
hereby provide the following comments in relation to the final Council approved IDP.

   a) The MEC commended the ELM for taking into account and addressing the issues that
      were raised as part of my comments on the 2005/2006 IDP, and congratulate the
      ELM for improving its ability to comply with legislative requirements relating to the
      IDP.
   b) The ELM IDP can be commended for clearly articulating its ‘comparative advantage’
      within the broader region and for a clear economic analysis (manufacturing in relation
      to agriculture, tourism etc.). The DLG wishes to commit itself to ensuring that this best
      practice is shared across the province.
   c) While the IDP is not in direct conflict with development plans of any of its neighbours
      or those of other spheres of government, we have nevertheless observed that the
      interaction between adjacent municipalities in the context of the IDP process
      continues to be very limited. In the context of the Gauteng Provincial Government’s
      commitment to building a globally competitive city region, it will be critical that we
      improve interaction between municipalities, with a view to enhancing the horizontal
      alignment and harmonisation of our plans.
   d) The ELM can be commended for adopting an outward looking approach in
      developing the IDP. Good examples are key flagship projects namely; the R59, R82
      and R42 corridor developments, which affect both Emfuleni and Midvaal Local
      Municipality and these, were mentioned in the IDP. It is recommended that the
      municipality continue cooperating with Midvaal in developing economic strategies and
      also in dealing with the issue of land ownership along these corridors since it has the
      potential to hamper intended development.
   e) The IDO demonstrates engagement with national and provincial policies and
      priorities. Nevertheless, to build IDPs as an expression of the plans of all spheres of


                                                                                             1
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

        government, we will need to improve our coordination and promote better vertical
        alignment. As we prepare for the 2007 IDP review we must seek to strengthen
        harmonisation between the Provincial Growth and Development Strategy (PGDS),
        the Gauteng City Region Perspective (GCR) and the Accelerated and Shared Growth
        Initiative for South Africa (ASGI-SA). In particular, the Department of Economic
        Development (DED) has committed itself to stronger engagement with municipalities
        in respect of the relationship between IDPs and national and provincial spatial
        economic perspectives.
   f)   Four of the identified Premier’s priority townships (Boipatong, Bophelong, Sebokeng
        and Sharpeville) are within the municipality. In response to the Premier’s call, we all
        need to make a concerted effort to develop integrated plans for the upgrading of
        infrastructure and social amenities in these areas. The ELM is advised to start
        planning for the development of these townships. It is also recommended tat the ELM
        continues to engage my Department and Department of Housing in this regard.
   g)   The apparent inability of the ELM to spend the allocated R46 million Municipal
        Infrastructure Grant (MIG) funds in a concern. While it is noted that by the end of
        financial year, most of it would be spent, in the third quarter of the financial year, the
        municipality had only managed to spend R5 million, this is an indication of the
        seriousness of the problem. In this respect, a greater dialogue needs to take place
        between the Department of Local Government (DLG) and the Department of
        Provincial and Local Government (DPLG) and yourselves in this regard.
   h)   The ELM IDP is commended for acknowledging that problems of air pollution, water
        spillages and sewer overflow are critical and important development issues, as it was
        identified during the Presidential Imbizo. In collaboration with stakeholders, the
        development of an Integrated Environmental Management Plan and a Waste
        Management Plan is critical.
   i)   The MEC encouraged the ELM to continue to work closely with the Department of
        Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) around the development of the Water Services
        Development Plan (WSDP). Furthermore, input towards a water conservation and
        demand management plan for the Province will be essential as part of our ongoing
        efforts to address the challenge of water losses in Gauteng.
   j)   The ELM IDP does not indicate how the municipality plans to use Provincial subsidies
        for the support of Primary Health Care (PHC) services especially since the ELM IDP
        mentioned building of three (3) clinics. In this regard, the Gauteng Department of
        Health has committed itself to focus engagement with the municipality around the
        Provincialisation of Health Services, and the implications this would have on
        operational and capital budgets.
   k)   While the IDP does make reference to issues of safety and security, further work is
        required in this regard. In particular, there is a need for engagement wit the South
        African Police Service (SAPS) on their plans to construct new police stations, which
        must integrated with the development plans identified within the IDP. There is also a
        need to focus attention on initiatives like the coordination of Traffic Law Enforcement.
        An initiative like the installation of Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras in the
        centre of Vereeniging to improve the safety of our people is commended.
   l)   The Community Development Workers (CDWs) are a key government initiative as
        part of its efforts to build an integrated, effective and caring government, which at all
        times acts to service the people and to improve their lives. The DLG has already
        deployed a number of CDWs as full-time public servants within the municipality. It is
        envisaged that we will need to work closely to ensure that the full potential of this
        initiative is realised. In particular, we need to build the working relationships between
        ward councillors, ward committees and CDWs.
   m)   Reviewal of the IDP was basically guided by the above mentioned comments by the
        MEC.




                                                                                                2

1.5 MFMA IMPLEMENTATION

On July 1, 2004 the Municipal Finance Management Act (MFMA) officially came into
effect. This legislation provides for significant changes in the way municipalities in South
Africa manage their financial affairs. The legislation not only deals with accounting and
finance issues but also deals with general management and governance issues.

While the official date for the legislation was July 1, 2004 the implementation will be
phased in up to a maximum of five years, depending on the capacity of individual
municipalities. This is due to the fact that the changes required are significant and far-
reaching. Councils require time to make the necessary changes and ensure that
Officials and Councillors understand and are trained in the required changes. Emfuleni
Local Municipality has been designated as a “high capacity” municipality and must
therefore implement the MFMA in a timely manner.

Emfuleni Local Municipality has made significant progress in the implementation of the
MFMA, but much remains to be done. Emfuleni continues to be plagued by a lack of
expertise and general capacity but this is being gradually overcome.

National Treasury has issued MFMA Circular Number 38, which sets out the five priority
implementation issues, which are:

All municipalities are required to prepare an MFMA implementation plan that focuses on
what the municipality intends to implement and achieve over the next few years. The
plan should contain a list of activities together with target (and actual) dates, with
provision to show ongoing (possibly monthly) progress with comments and a responsible
councillor/official                  for                each                   activity.

The accounting officer of the municipality (municipal manager) must take on the
responsibilities assigned to the position under the MFMA. A full list of these
responsibilities is provided in Chapter 8 of the MFMA and throughout the legislation.

The municipal manager is required to formally establish and maintain a top management
team, to include all those senior managers who are responsible for a vote or the budget
of a vote. Detail of top management is provided in section 77 of the MFMA. All councils
should comply with the provisions of the Municipal Systems Act (as amended) and its
regulations in relation to annual staff performance agreements.

Municipalities must establish controls over their bank accounts, cash management and
investments. Further details of these requirements are provided in Chapter 3 of the
MFMA.

Municipal managers must ensure that they take the appropriate steps to implement
effective systems of expenditure control, and meet their financial commitments to other
parties promptly and in accordance with the Act.




                                                                                          5

1.6 ISSUES RAISED BY MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY

It became an evident during the IDP public participation meeting that the community is
not happy with the pace of service delivery within Emfuleni Local Municipality area. The
community raised issues mostly pertaining to bad conditions of roads, lack of high masts
lights, illegal dumping, high rate of unemployment, high rate of crime, lack of housing
infrastructure, incomplete projects in some areas and potholes.

The identified ward based projects that are contained in the Annexure of the main IDP
document are basically addressing most of the issues raised by the community.




                                                                                      6

Chapter 2

2.1 ANALYSIS PHASE

This chapter aims to briefly describe the environment within which the Emfuleni Local
Municipality exists. It reveals the current realities of both internal and external facts such
as local economic development, service delivery, financial issues, institutional issues,
demographic figures, spatial development, environmental issues, information
technology, Sports and Recreation, Arts and Culture, libraries, social development,
public safety and all issues pertaining to municipal services towards the community.

2.1.1 Area Location

Emfuleni Local Municipality is one of three local municipalities that constitute the
Sedibeng District Municipality. It is the Western-most Local Municipality of the District,
which covers the entire southern area of the Gauteng province extending along a 120
kilometres axis from east to west. It covers an area of 987.45 km². The Vaal River
forms the southern boundary of the Emfuleni Local Municipality and its strategic location
affords it many opportunities for tourism and other forms of economic development.
Emfuleni shares boundaries with Metsimaholo Local Municipality in the Free State to the
south, Midvaal Local Municipality to the east, the City of Johannesburg metropolitan
area to the north and Westonaria and Potchefstroom (in North West Province) Local
Municipalities to the west.

The municipality is strategically located with access to a well-maintained road network -
N1 national route linking Johannesburg and Bloemfontein, which traverses Emfuleni.
Emfuleni Local Municipality has two main city/town centres, namely Vereeniging and
Vanderbijlpark within the area and Sasolburg is only 10 kilometres to the south, across
the provincial boundary. It forms the “heartland” of what was formerly known as the Vaal
Triangle, renowned for its contribution to the iron and steel industry in South Africa.
Emfuleni also contains approximately six large peri-urban townships of Evaton,
Sebokeng, Sharpeville, Boipatong, Bophelong and Tshepiso. The latter six areas lack

Map 2.1 Area Location

The area also comprises a number of large residential areas, all of which require
considerable investment in infrastructure and environment upgrading. The Emfuleni
Local Municipality is rich in history as it encapsulates the Anglo Boer War, heritage
assets such as the Sharpeville monument and the liberation struggle epitomized by the
signing of the Constitution in 1996 in Sharpeville. Emfuleni’s settlement patterns are
largely dictated by the history of the area. The evidence of san rock engravings near the
Vaal River verifies that the San people originally inhabited Emfuleni.

The high growth rate indicates that Emfuleni has a history of high migration. This high
migration rate could be ascribed to the new housing developments attracting new
residents.

Population Distribution

Emfuleni is a largely urbanised municipality, with high population concentrations and
density compared to other municipalities making up the District. In fact, the municipality
houses around 80% of the population in Sedibeng district.

The racial composition of Emfuleni population is indicted in the table below and

entrenched racial divisions within the municipality. These tend also to reflect the socio-
economic geography of the municipality and the pattern of access to services.

2.1.2.1 Age distribution

Some interesting characteristics of the population are important to note for their
implications for development in the municipality:
35% of the population is below the age of 34 – this youthful population will make
different demands on the municipality than an older, mature population, for example, on
education, sport and recreation, libraries and other community facilities.
The numbers of youth appear to be declining over time, possibly indicating a declining
birth rate in the population.
The highest population in any cohort is in the 15 – 34 age cohorts, followed closely by
the 35 – 64 cohorts. These categories alone comprise 21.79% of the male population
and 20, 29% female population. This population category represents young work-
seekers and those who are establishing family units. They are also a grouping very
vulnerable to HIV infection. Their demands will be felt on housing, sport and recreation
facilities, job creation and health facilities.
The largest percentage of the population falls within the economically active cohorts.
Given the slow economic growth and lack of jobs, this population group will continue
to be pushed towards poverty, exacerbating the financial crisis the municipality finds
itself in through an inability to afford services.




                                                                                       10

There are more women than men in the municipality and significantly more aged women
than men (women comprise 10.5% of the population over 55 years old, while men only
comprise 8.43%). The aged demands will be felt more in welfare needs.

The average household income for 2003 in Emfuleni was estimated at R3, 400 per
household per month (Slabbert 2003). For 1999, this figure was estimated at R3, 083
per month (Slabbert & Mokoena 1999). The average formal wage per worker was R4,
643 per worker per month for 2001. The average wage per formal sector worker
increased substantially during the 1990s. The reduced number of workers in Emfuleni
therefore earns higher nominal wages on average.

A reason for this higher average wage per worker can be labour union actions, resulting
in higher wages for their members. However, as firms are cutting back on labour, fewer
workers have employment in Emfuleni. The result of this is that a rather skewed

Using the standard equation as defined above, the unemployment rate (Ur) (expanded
definition) is calculated at 51% from the 2001 Census data (Municipal Demarcation
Board 2003)

The unemployment rate for Emfuleni is higher than that of all municipalities in Gauteng,
as well as the Northern Free State (Stats SA 2003a). The national figure for the year
2001 was estimated at 41.5% for 2001 (BER 2001). The rate determined for Emfuleni
from the 1999 survey data was 51.3% and 54.1% from the 2003 survey data. However,
according to Global Insight overall employment (both informal and formal) for Sedibeng
grew over the 7-year period with slightly more than 2% per year (refer to Global Insight,
2004)

The next table shows the poverty gap calculated for the total population of Emfuleni.
The number of households below their respective poverty lines is estimated at 100,414
for the year 2003. That is 51.6 per cent of all the households in Emfuleni. The combined
monthly shortfall of income (poverty gap) of these households amounts to R80.23 million
per month (R962.77 million per year). The average shortfall per poor household in
Emfuleni amounts to R799 per month (R9, 588 per year). For the entire Sedibeng
district, the distribution of household income for 1996 and for 2000 was virtually the
same (Global Insight, 2004).

This aspect of analysis reflects on the municipality’s activities and how they impact in
particular on communities that the municipality serves. As such this analysis will focus
on service delivery, financial viability and institutional issues.

Unemployment and poverty

Unemployment and poverty is on the rise despite the economic growth that is
experienced and unemployment and poverty is further exacerbated by the high in-
migration of unemployed people into Emfuleni. The youth of Emfuleni is in particular the
hardest hit in terms of unemployment, despite the skills and qualifications that exist.

Production

The production profile of the economy consists of three main categories namely the
primary, secondary and tertiary sectors. Below is a breakdown of the 9 sectors. The year
2003 was in particular a good year as Emfuleni economy performed in particular well
relatively comparing to Gauteng and the national in most of the sectors.

Primary sector

The primary economic sector consists of two sub-sectors, namely Agriculture and
Mining. Agriculture's relative contribution to the GGP of Emfuleni decreased from 1.7 per
cent in 1996 to 1.5 per cent in 2003. The average annual growth rate for the sector from



                                                                                      16
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
1996 to 2003 was 0.6% at constant prices. The agricultural sector offers a relatively
small degree of economic activity in Emfuleni. Mining contributes only 0.2 percent to
GGP of Emfuleni. The contribution of the mining sector to the GGP of Emfuleni declined
from 0.5 per cent in 1996 to 0.2 per cent in 2003. The average growth rate from 1996 to
2003 was -13.0% per annum at constant prices.

Secondary sector

Secondary economic activities in Emfuleni consist of three sub-sectors, namely
Manufacturing, Electricity/Gas/Water and Construction. Their contributions, growth rates
and constituents are discussed.

Manufacturing

Emfuleni manufacturing sector is largely dominated by metals, metal products,
machinery and equipment industries. The dominant company is iron and steel and is
considered to be the biggest steel sector agglomeration within the country. The metals
and metal products industry has undergone major restructuring in the past few years,
resulting in job shedding. It has been growing at a relatively low 1.2% per annum. The
petrochemical industry is the second major manufacturing sub sector. Unlike the steel
industry, it has been growing at a relatively fast pace between 2000 and 2006.

The relative contribution of Manufacturing towards the GGP of Emfuleni decreased
slightly from 39.5 per cent in 1996 to 38.7 per cent in 2003. The manufacturing sector
can be regarded as the dominant economic activity in Emfuleni. The average annual
growth rate from 1996 to 2003 was 3.1% (constant prices).

Emfuleni has a wide range of industrial activities. The industrial activities are recorded in
the next table with their share in the manufacturing sector's GGP contribution.

The table above illustrate that the economy in Emfuleni is highly dependant on
manufacturing.

Mittal Steel performance

Mittal Steel previously known as Iscor and then Ispat until it is currently trading as Mittal
Steel South Africa. It registered record earnings of R4 541m (1 019c per share). This is
as a result of international steel prices that attained all time high levels, strong domestic
demand growth and the fact that cost escalations were successfully contained. Growths
in the domestic steel sales volume were at 22% in 2004. As of2000 there has been a
very rapid growth within the global market for steel in as far as supply and demand is
concerned with a very close correlation. However it is projected that in 2007, the
demand for steel globally will be fractionally less than the supply for the same year. The
Vanderbijlpark and Long Products plants registered an increase in their operating profit
of 89% and 128% respectively from the previous year (Mittal Steel, 2005). It does not
seem that despite this financial success, more permanent jobs will be created, instead it
could lead to shedding of jobs, but on the other hand it will definitely create short term
jobs and benefit the Emfuleni economy in terms of procurement by local businesses.
However the impact of this still needs to be determined.

Construction, Electricity/Gas/Water

The GGP contribution of construction activities to Emfuleni during 1996 was 3.6%. This
figure declined to 3.0% in 2003. Electricity/Gas/Water contributed 4.1 % to the GGP of
Emfuleni in 2003. The average annual growth rate from 1996 to 2003 was 3.0%
(constant prices).

Tertiary sector

Tertiary sector activities consist of a number of sectors such as Trade, Transport,
Financing, Services (including government services) and Tourism & Entertainment.
Combined, this sector registered a GGP contribution of 50.1% in 1996 to Emfuleni. By
2003, the figure was 52.5%. The Transport and Finances sectors experienced an above
average annual growth between 1996 and 2003 of 8.6% and 4.4% respectively
(constant prices). The average annual growth for the whole Emfuleni economy was 3.2%
(constant prices). For Tourism and Entertainment only the 2003 figure was estimated.
This sector presently contributes only a relatively small amount to the GGP of Emfuleni.
Below is a table with Average annual growth (%, Constant 1995 prices) for the year
2003.

      It is important to note that economic trends presented above do not accommodate any
      unpredictable scenarios. It is based on historical realistic economic trends of the
      municipality. The economy of Emfuleni is predicted by Urban-Econ to be stagnant for the
      next ten years and more.

      HIV and AIDS

      The effect of HIV and AIDS must also be taken into consideration in as far as the supply
      of labour or EAP is concerned because the decline in the working age cohort (people
      between the ages 15 to 64) as a percentage of the total population could be the result of
      the impact of Aids on the population. Further studies of the impact of HIV and AIDS on
      the population growth and economic development will need to be done.

2.4.1 Youth Forums

Emfuleni does not have a structure in place to deal with youth issues. There are at least
over 50 youth organisations that are operating within Emfuleni. Social Development in
Gauteng Province has established Youth Forum within the district which addresses
youth developmental issues. A proper link has not been established yet with this
initiative in terms of the functions and responsibilities as well as contributions expected
from Emfuleni.

2.4.2 Youth expectations

Youth development should be a priority in Emfuleni
Emfuleni should develop a youth friendly recruitment strategy
Implementation of 100 learnerships (Skills Development Plan)
Sports Development Strategy
Entrepreneurs Development Strategy (LED)
Capacitate libraries to be youth information centres

2.4.3 Youth Advisory Centres

Umsobomvu Youth Fund has initiated an advisory centre in which will be taking place in
Sebokeng (Zone 14), Boipatong and Bophelong. A space had been reserved by
Emfuleni in all these venues in contribution to the success of this initiative.

2.4.4 HIV and AIDS Youth Awareness

HIV and AIDS it’s a world’s problem, but statistics show that within the Southern Africa
the pandemic has taken its tall over people. Out of an estimated 40 million infected
women and children in the world, 70% are living in the sub-Saharan Africa. South Africa
forms part of the sub-Saharan Africa and so is Gauteng as well as Emfuleni. As a result
of these shocking statistics, Emfuleni Local Municipality in conjunction with Sedibeng
District Municipality and VNG working together with Stop Aids Now collaborated and
agreed on implementing measures that are geared to reducing and combating the
spread of this pandemic.



                                                                                        30
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
The initiative is aimed at promoting all issues that are related to professional
administration and handling of the HIV/AIDS. Amongst others issues like prevention,
awareness, treatment, counselling, care of orphan, vulnerable children and so on. Other
issues that would be addressed also include service delivery. Specific services become
prevalent when people are infected with HIV and have fully developed AIDS.

The initiative would be benefiting the youth in such a way that the youth itself would be
directly involved in developing the youth policy on HIV and AIDS as well as on
programmes such as destigmatisation and awareness, promoting safer ex behaviour,
distribution of condoms, posters and so on. NGOs and Private sectors would also lend a
hand in the implementation of this initiative.

2.5 INFRASTRUCTURE AND SERVICE DELIVERY

2.5.1 Water and Sanitation

The below table reveals that 75 873 households (40%) have water supply within their
yards. 7% of the population are relying on community taps that are ± 200m away from
their buildings. There is a margin of people who are still relying on spring,
dams/pool/stagnant water, river/stream and water vendor. Table 10 below shows
different sources of water.

2.5.1.1 Free Basic Service Delivery

Emfuleni Local Municipality provides 6kl free basic water to all residents in area of
supply. The challenge remains with accounting for this free basic 6kl basic water
provision in previously disadvantaged areas because of non-metering and the flat tariff.
Previously disadvantage areas include Sebokeng, Evaton, Sharpeville, Boipatong, and
Bophelong. However it excludes Sebokeng Zone 10 were water meters have been
installed to about 2400 houses and billing is in process. This situation has led to the tariff
review so as to ensure proper provision of free basic services. However, this situation is
mitigated by the non-payment for service in these areas, which in reality ensures that
these residents receive in actual fact more than 6kl of free basic water.

        The bucket system in Emfuleni was eradicated three years back, only less than ten houses in
       Evaton who are still using bucket and Council is not collecting or rendering the service.

Metsi-a-Lekoa provides water to a total of 155 445 house-holds with water and 141 259
house-holds with full borne sanitation. This figure excludes Evaton backyard houses of
about 63 500. Evaton backyard dwellings are on private property and should be serviced

As Emfuleni is in close proximity to the Vaal River, water provision for the area is mainly
done from that river. However, Metsi-a-Lekoa only abstracts and purifies a small amount
of the required quantity directly from the Vaal River (0.2 Ml/day). Most potable water
required by Emfuleni is supplied by Rand Water (some 205 Ml/day).

2.5.1.3 Sanitation Infrastructure

The sanitation system consists of gravity pipelines and because of the flat terrain also 49
sewage pump stations. The waste water system consists of three wastewater treatment
works. The largest of the wastewater treatment works being operated is the Sebokeng
water treatment facility with a capacity of 119 Ml/day. Significant portions of the
infrastructure including the Rietspruit and Leeuwkuil wastewater treatment works need to


                                                                                         33

be upgraded and rehabilitated to attain compliance with environmental and legal
requirements. A summary of the wastewater treatment facilities is shown below:

Over the past years Emfuleni has experienced negative publicity due to spillage of
sewage in the Vaal River. This problem is due to deterioration of the sewer
infrastructure, vandalism of cables at sewer pump stations and a maintenance backlog.
These problems are addressed and over the past two years R 35 Million has been spent
on the refurbishment of sewer infrastructure, preventative maintenance and network
upgrading. Spillages have to date been reduced to manageable levels, but the process
to minimize and eliminate spillages will continue.

The network of both Water and Sanitation is old and getting overworked. The age
analysis of the networks varies from 60 -70 years, this is also across the Municipal
area. The Municipality has about 52 Pump Stations in its area which are 50 years
old. This goes for the Sewer network in Vereeniging. In the Sebokeng and Evaton area,
there are pocket of recently installed Water and Sewer network.

With assistance from DWAF, including the services of a retired Civil Engineer, a
SANITATION PLAN has been prepared. A Project Steering Committee (PSC) has been
established, including Sedibeng, Midvaal, DWAF, RW, Department of Local Government
and local stake holders like Save the Vaal (SAVE).

The short term plan entails the rehabilitation of existing infra-structure, including portable
generators and pumps to minimize sewer spills. Existing infra-structure has reached the
end of its life-span and can only be kept operational with a high risk of sewer spills. New
infra-structure needs to be constructed in order to prevent future sewer spills.

The Long term solution of about R450 million, includes elimination of sewer pump
stations and constructing a new gravity pipe next to the Klip and Vaal Rivers. The
replacement of three Waist Water Treatment Plants (WWTP), namely, Leeuwkuil,
Rietspruit and Midvaal’s WWTP are also included.

This Long Term Plan would reduce sewer spillages and thus assist with high cost
development in Emfuleni’s area, creating jobs and sustainability.

Eradication of bucket system

Presently all bucket systems operated by Emfuleni was eradicated and stopped with
completion of project funded by DLG during 2001. Customers who choose to use
buckets can connect to the sanitation system or install septic tank systems. This is more
so where land owners earn rent from back-yard houses and should thus provide
services.

The Council cannot be held liable to provide services to these customers; however a
MIG funded project of R2.6m has started. This project entails the investigation of dry
sanitation and other sanitation systems to be eliminated. The funds will then be utilised
to eradicate identified sanitation problem systems as far as possible.

2.5.1.4 Water Service Delivery Plan

A WSDP has been developed and served before Council on the 22 August 2006. This
plan details the needs and actions with regard to Water and Sanitation services.

Service Level Policy

Of crucial importance in planning for the future is for the WSA to have a service level
policy.

In terms of the national guidelines of DWAF, basic services are:
Water stand pipe at 200 meters from household, this would include 6 kilo-liter free”
water, and dry sanitation at each stand. Dry sanitation can be a Ventilated Improved Pit
(VIP) latrines or an equivalent. The following targets are put by national government:
Basic water supply to all by 2008
Basic sanitation to all by 2010

Department of Housing (Gauteng) decided that the basic level of service for
Gauteng will be full-borne water and sanitation.

Council adopted a policy on 14 July 2005 to provide an intermediate LOS 2 to all new
economical developments.

The implication of these different service levels is that expectations of informal are
that full level of water and sanitation services will be provided. This comes at a
high cost, with is not always affordable. Various relationships exist between the
level of service, level of payment and level of revenue management. Basically the
operation cost of a full-borne service is very high, and with a low payment level
sustainability is not possible.

Water losses

Unaccounted for water is defined as the difference between the measured volumes of
water put into the supply system and the total volume of water measured to
authorized consumers. Water losses stems from internal plumbing leaks, pipe bursts
and meter in-accuracy.

An integrated water resource planning approach is in process to be introduced. It
involves the concurrent consideration of future water supply resources (such as from the


                                                                                         35
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
Vaal River) and water demand management options to enable the future demand for
water to be met not by only developing additional resources, but also by reducing the
growth in water demand. Although Metsi-a-Lekoa has embarked on a water loss
reduction process, further detail integrated water resource management is required to
minimize water losses.

Infra-structure Maintenance

Like any infra-structure water and sanitation services needs a technically sound
maintenance program. In this regard Metsi has embarked on a Master Plan to capture
and identify existing and future infra-structure. This project needs to be followed by an
Asset Management Program. This project will project and define capital needs for a
scientific Asset Management Program.

A further proposed solution with regard to sanitation services is to provide relief in a
phased approach. Phase 1, dubbed Short Term, is to rectify the most serious
shortcomings at the pump stations and at the Rietspruit and Leeuwkuil works without
any basic changes to the existing infrastructure.

While this will give a significant improvement to overall performance, problems which
could result in raw sewage spillage cannot be ruled out. An early warning telemetry
system is accordingly proposed, together with portable standby pumps and diesel
electricity generators to enable a problem to be attended to in the shortest possible time.
The estimated costs R30m.

Phase 2 the Long Term Solution, is reckoned to take at least 6 years to implement
fully. This phase concentrates on reducing the 51 pump stations to the bare minimum of
4 and also on rationalizing the treatment aspect.

The proposal is to construct a system of outfall sewers from the present Sebokeng,
Leeuwkuil and Rietspruit works to a new wastewater treatment works in the south of
Emfuleni and then to decommission the existing three works. Meyerton’s wastewater
treatment works could also be included in the scheme to further streamline the
wastewater handling process and to reduce the risks of pollution. The estimated cost of
the scheme is around R450m. Implementation time is 8 to 10 years.

Payment levels

Payment levels for water and sanitation services are low and expenditure high. This
shortage of funds causes operation and maintenance of infra-structure to be low, which
leads to water losses and sewage spills.

Water Awareness

Water awareness programs needs to increase to make customers aware of the value
and scarceness of water and education with regard to sanitation.

Funding

Shortage of funds seriously hampers:
          • maintenance and rehabilitation of existing infra-structure
          • Installation of new infra-structure for new developments


                                                                                        36

Meanwhile 81%are using electricity for cooking, 89% are using electricity for lighting.
This implies that 8% of the population are not using their electricity for cooking. A total of
9% are using candles for lighting, this means that these houses are not connected.

2.6.1 Free Basic Services

A Free Basic Electricity (FBE) Funding Agreement has been entered into between the
Municipality and Eskom. The new agreement starting from this year will be renewed
after three years. Basically all registered indigents, whether they are connected to the
Eskom or Municipal network are eligible to receive 50kWh free electricity per month. The
verification process completed in August 2006 revealed that only 11 000 are eligible to
receive free basic electricity out of approximately 36 000 registered indigents.
In May 2006 the Municipality has adopted the new policy on indigent household
consumers. In August 2006 the Municipality embarked on the re-registration of the
indigents. The registration process was completed end of August and approximately 35
000 application were received. The application forms must be captured into the system
verified and thereafter will be published for comments. Eskom will only receive the list of
the indigents in the area after the alluded process is finalized. It need to be mentioned
that Eskom will also take some time to capture the list in their system, as the data from
the Municipality is not aligned to Eskom system.


                                                                                           37

2.6.2 Ring fencing of Electricity

Ring fencing of the Electricity function is a requirement of the Distribution License issued
to Emfuleni Local Municipality by the National Electricity Regulator (NER).

In order to determine the exact impact/value of the Electricity function on the municipality
the Department of Minerals and Energy (DME) provided funding for financial ring fencing
project. This project was completed during the second part of 2004 and a report was
submitted to the council in this regard. Funding is required to continue the ring fencing
process to obtain an operationally ring fenced electricity function which should function
as a municipal entity. The section 78-assessment process has started in July 2006. The
company appointed is busy collecting necessary information from various departments.

2.6.3 Electrical Services

Electricity is an essential service and is a catalyst for development in the Emfuleni area.
Electricity sales account for approximately 54% of the municipality’s income and it is
estimated that between Eskom and Emfuleni Local Municipality there is 100% supply
coverage in the municipal area. It should be noted that it is not all registered indigents in
the Eskom supply area receive free basic electricity.

Emfuleni Local Municipality provides an electricity supply to approximately 65000
consumers. The actual electricity sold comprises of 75% industrial and commercial and
25% domestic loading. The highest maximum demand registered is 390MW.

Some of the major problems encountered during the past year can still be related to a
lack of maintenance over the previous years, the poor conditions of infrastructure and
theft of parts of the infrastructure. This situation has led to a few power failures, which
affected large areas and was the cause of many customer related complaints.

In reality the abovementioned is mainly the consequence of the municipality not
investing adequately to maintenance and strengthening of distribution network.

The current status of municipal service delivery is at risk of getting worse by the day if no
attention is given to this issue.

In general, no better service delivery can be expected if no significant allocation of funds
is secured to keep the wheels of this industry turning. Planned refurbishment/upgrading
work is one of the Electricity Department’s main objectives, which will reduce the number
of breakdowns and consequential power failures that are directly proportional to the
service delivery and quality of supply.

The Electricity Department has however been able to accede to most applications for
electrical connections and to provide these connections within the estimated delivery
periods, subject to the availability of material. The rapid growth or demand for electricity
in some areas is however a cause for concern as the existing infrastructure is incapable
of accommodating it.

2.6.4 Conditions of existing infrastructure

Major portions of the Emfuleni Local Municipality distribution networks have been in
service for more than 50years and the feasibility study has shown that much of the


                                                                                          38
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
networks are approaching or have exceeded their design life span. The results obtained
indicated that on a weighted average value only 45% life remained on the networks.
Although, age in itself does not provide any conclusive information on the state of
equipment or the need to refurbish or replace the equipment. However, it does provide a
good overview of the extent of the task and operation of the risk reliability at hand.

The existing networks have begun to exhibit degrading in reliability performance which
reduced safety margins, imbalance operation and obsolete or general deterioration. The
extent of refurbishment plan is presently unknown and can therefore not inform a budget
plan. In some cases it is very difficult to predict the growth of new development and the
cost related to this

In order for the Municipality to obtain maximum benefit from available networks, a
master plan addressing the systematic refurbishment and network extension program
must be in place. The master plan must address the short and long term program to be
carried out or revised on a yearly basis. The revision of refurbishment plan will assist the
Municipality to make meaningful strategic decisions with regard to the allocation of
funding and prioritization of the projects. The identified refurbishment plan must be fully
be integrated with the network expansion in order to achieve the best long term vision of
sustainable service delivery.

Currently the Engineering Services Departments have implemented a task team in order
to source world-class engineering specialists or consultants to assist in the development,
compilation and maintenance of master plans in order to address the abovementioned
objectives.

There is no record of the actual length of low voltage lines and/or cables installed.

The estimated replacement value of the electricity network amounts to R1 500 million.

Challenges

   •   The major challenges facing the Electricity Department are:
   •   To continue with the preventative maintenance programs to ensure the proper
       and efficient utilization of the municipality’s distribution assets with the limited
       resources available.
   •   To effectively utilise the limited available capital budget at Emfuleni Local
       Municipality to ensure that system refurbishment/upgrading is done effectively.
   •   To draft a suitable asset management program that will assist in identifying the
       need for timeous asset replacement.
   •   To maximize the income through the sale of electricity by ensuring that all meters
       are audited and illegal use of electricity is curbed to the minimum.

2.7 WASTE MANAGEMENT

Waste management is categorized in four key functions, namely, household, illegal
dumps, business and industrial refuse collection, mini dump transfer facilities and
township and CBD cleansing and landfill sites operations and management.

Residential waste is collected once a week in the following areas: Sebokeng, Evaton,
Sharpeville, Boipatong, Bophelong, Tshepiso, Vanderbijlpark and Vereeniging, (a total of
154,330 households) being serviced on a sustainable basis. The increased figure in
sustainable household collection now also includes Evaton West and Bophelong Focus
and the Mantevrede Agricultural holdings. Business waste is collected on a daily basis in
mainly the Vanderbijlpark and Vereeniging areas, (a total of 1,453 stands) the total
serviced stands & households is 134 483. Street sweeping services are also being done
in mainly the CBD areas of Vereeniging and Vanderbijlpark (and outer business
centers), Sebokeng taxi rank and all main roads.

In terms of bulk service delivery and final disposal of waste at landfill sites, Council
operates 4 mini dump/transfer stations in the Vereeniging area and operates Waldrift
and Palm Springs landfill sites.

Council only provides for a general waste collection service that includes general
household waste, removal of indiscriminate or illegal dumps (public space) in all of the
regions and mass removal of garden refuse and builders rubble on a pre paid payment
system.

The South African municipalities have received assistance from the World Bank to
develop landfill gas and other methane resources as carbon projects. Out of all the
landfill sites identified in the Sedibeng District Municipality, the Emfuleni-Zuurfontein,
Boitshepi and Waldrift landfill sites were identifies as the only viable sites for feasible
carbon projects that have the capacity to generate income by the sale of active gas
recovery at landfill sites. If the testing phase proves successful, Council will contribute to
reduce the emissions of methane gas (potent greenhouse gas) and at the same time,
earn income on the volume of gas generated in a specific year. This project, if
successful, is also seen as a continued process for many years to come.

2.7.1 Backlogs

In terms of illegal dumping, a backlog of 100,000 cubic meters of general waste mixed
with soil is still lying mainly in the previous disadvantaged areas of Emfuleni that needs
to be removed.

In terms of the demarcation board, the farm 536 IQ Wildebeestfontein now belongs as a
total unit to Johannesburg City Council. The portion of land (Palm Springs dumping site)
was transferred during December 1996 to the then Lekoa Vaal Metropolitan Council but
they neglected to register and rezoned the area (that is still zoned as agricultural land).

In terms of the licence application for Palm Springs, the application document including
the EIA is completed and the following outstanding issues need to be attended to:

Based on the cross border agreement, the land to be rezoned from agriculture to formal
waste disposal facility
The title deed of portion 1 of the Farm 536 IQ Wildebeestfontein be registered in the
name of Emfuleni Local Municipality
Above-mentioned documents are to be included in the application document before a
final licence will be issued to construct the Palm Springs landfill site.

Permitting and rehabilitation issues

Zuurfontein Landfill: The site was closed for use by residents on 31 August 2005. The
Record of Decision (R.O.D.) was issued by GDACE but Council is still waiting for the
final permit from DEAT.

Boitshepi landfill: This site had reached a stage of closure. An application for funding
had been sent to the Project Management Unit to set out funding from the MIG grant.
This project would be implemented as soon as funding is made available from the MIG
funds.

 Waldrift Landfill site: The design and construction for the closed Phases 1 and 2 will
commence as soon as the EIA process is completed. The process will commence during
April 2008.

New landfill site: The feasibility study for the Kiewiet site has been completed and is
not suitable for development due to critical faults identified.

Recycling: Only Boitshepi Landfill site have 170 re-claimers that are currently working
on the site on an informal basis. Regulating and controlling aspects will be initiated once
the MIG funding is approved and a 2.2 metre high concrete palisade fence can be
erected.

2.7.2 Other recycling initiatives in place

Evaton recycling centre ha created nine jobs on a permanent basis. Currently this
centre deals with on average a total breakdown of collectables per month as follows:
Paper related products       93 Kg
Cans                         479 Kg
Aluminum                     43 Kg
Plastic                      227 Kg


                                                                                        41

Scrap metal                   3 235 Kg

2.7.3 Rotary Club pilot project of Vanderbijlpark household reclaimable collection

Currently there are 150 re-claimers permanently involved in the project that focus mainly
on recovery of paper, plastic, tins products, etc. A total of 60 trolleys were procured and
each re-claimer was issued with 2 x overalls and I.D. cards. The biggest draw back is
that there is currently no supporting legislation to enhance daily operations of this type of
venture. The following type of and mass are being collected on a monthly basis: Plastic
bottles 22 tons, paper related products 11 tons and clear plastic 4 tons per month.

The EIA’s and landfill management strategies will form part of the license applications of
the various landfill sites listed in above. The process to appoint a consultant to deal with
legislative permit for closure and management issues will be dealt with as soon as the
MIG funding for Boitshepi Landfill site is approved and available.

In terms of legislation, Sedibeng (for and behalf of the District and the Local Council’s)
compiled the Integrated Waste Management Strategy. A final draft for Emfuleni is
available but awaits final comments from GDACE before it will be served to the
respective Councils for final adoption of the plans.

2.7.4 Cleaner production

Apart from the recycling initiatives mentioned above, DEAT is conducting an Industrial
exchange pilot programme to reduce industrial waste that puts pressure on our landfill
site. Private contractors dealing directly with Hospitals and medical practices are
handling all medical and sharp related waste. Private contractors transporting
Hazardous waste collected from Industries to landfill sites that are licensed.

2.7.5 Waste disposal

Illegal waste dumping occurs throughout the area.

Natural Environment Issues
Issues of environmental planning, integrated waste management and pollution
abatement must be addressed as essential ingredients of Emfuleni’s sustainable
development as there are direct correlations between these issues and the economic
growth of Emfuleni.
For the successful control of air pollution a number of essential requirements must be
met. The first requirement is to make essential resources, manpower, available.
Training of officials to implement the Act is also a priority.
The second requirement is a clear picture of the locality, nature and magnitude of the
sources of air pollution and t heir relative significance.
The third requirement is an understanding of the particular conditions in the area of
Emfuleni, which may influence the implementation of the Act.
Management of landfill sites & transfer stations under capacity
No landfill site nor the Vereeniging mini dump/transfer stations permitted for operations
Transfer stations infrastructure in a poor condition
No landfill capacity - develop new landfill site
No mini dump transfer station for Vanderbijlpark / Boipatong & Sharpeville
Phases 1 and 2 of Waldrift not re-habilitated
Kwaggastroom, Sharpeville and Zone 20 (borrow pits) closed but not re-habilitated.

Housing is a National function currently run with Province as per Constitution. The
District and Local Municipalities are the implementing agencies and responsible for the
management of rental and hostel units. The council has managed to build 2417 for the
past two years (2004 & 2005)

2.8.2 Urban Renewal

This is an initiative of the Gauteng Department of Housing in collaboration with Sedibeng
District and Emfuleni Local Municipality brought about interventions to address the
entrenched socio-economics, physical and institutional interventions that prevent Evaton
from developing into self-sustaining and vibrant community.

2.8.3 Hostel Development

Upgrading of Sebokeng, Khayelitsha, Boipatong and Sharpeville hostels had been
approved by the council. There are challenges that are hindering the progress of these
projects. Amongst others these challenges includes structures, electricity and other
related issues

Emfuleni Local Municipality has five areas that have hostels, which are under the direct
and indirect management of the Municipality. These are the following hostels:

   •   Sebokeng Hostel
   •   Boipatong Hostel
   •   Sharpeville Hostel
   •   Khayelitsha Hostel
   •   Kwa-Masiza Hostel

2.8.3.1 Sebokeng Hostel

This Hostel is owned by the Municipality and currently emergency repairs work is to be
done and the project was delayed due to hostel 1 and 2 residents who have a problem
with the last development in phase one. There is a process scenario the development of
this hostel and Province and the Municipality are engaging with resents about this huge
development project.

2.8.3.2 Boipatong Hostel

The Hostel is owned by the Municipality and emergency repairs are being done at the
hostel. Work being done related to repair of leakages sewer pipes etc.
There is a process towards the development of this Hostel by the Province jointers with
the Emfuleni Local Municipality.

2.8.3.3 Sharpeville Hostel

Sharpeville hostel is also owned by Municipality and people who stay there are families.
Some work was done in the area, but residents have raised a concern about the quality
of work done in the area by the contractor. The Emfuleni’s Housing and Property
Department intends to request funding for the development of this Hostel.

2.8.3.4 Khayelitsha Hostel

It is Council owned and largely occupied by resident and were located out of Sebokeng
hostel during the early 1990’s political violence. Some study was done to look at what
can be done to improve the conditions. Subsequent to that, the Council resolved not to
proceed with the development of the hostels. The Housing Department has since
engaged with those residents and was met with a serious resistance, which is political in
nature. The Department is facing a challenge with regard to a lot of people from both
Kwa-Masiza and Sebokeng Hostel who may be moved or accommodated in Kwasenitza.

2.8.3.5 Kwa-Masiza Hostel

and other related matters. Of great concern is there are thousands more people staying
in this hostel, which will soon be a Council problem. Currently, the owners owe the
Council millions of rand on arrears and this may lead to the Municipality taking over the
management of this hostel. There has not been any formal engagement with the owners
but indications are that they are no longer interested in managing or owning the hostel.

2.8.3.6 Old Vereeniging Hospital

The hospital was owned by the old Transvaal Provincial Administration and has since
been illegally occupied by thousands of people. Now the area is owned by the Provincial
Department of Public Works but the land is Council’s. These are now using the
Municipal’s services such as water. Housing Department is currently engaging Province
about the future of this Hospital. The Department’s point of departure is to take the area
provided Province guarantees to provide necessary funding for any future development
in this insertion. An opinion is also held that it be put under Social Housing as future
development. A lot of parties and potential developers have shown keen interest.

2.8.4 20 Priority Township Programme (20 PTP)

The Provincial Government through the Department Housing has launched the 20
Priority Township Programme. The objective of this programme is to redevelop and
position these twenty townships in Gauteng towards prosperity and economic
development. This includes infrastructure development in areas such as roads,
stormwater, sewer and other essentials. In Emfuleni; Sebokeng, Boipatong, Bophelong
and Sharpeville are part of this huge project and Boipatong is a pilot project in Emfuleni.
Preliminary discussions have been held towards implementation of the project.

2.8.5 Proposed Housing Developments

The province has appointed a Team of Consultants (Regional Professional Team) for

2.8.6 Evaton Renewal Project (ERP)

The Department of Housing in Gauteng has a programme called Urban Renewal and the
programme is aimed renewal of the urban areas, which have been neglected over a
period of time owing the apartheid era and it. And it focuses on making these areas
economical viable and develop their infrastructure. And in Emfuleni, Evaton is part of this
provincial programme and was launched in the area late in 2004. Up to date most of the
work that has been done amongst owners has been construction of new roads and
upgrading old ones, erection of high mast lights, development of recreational facilities
and the fencing of the Evaton cemeteries.

Receiving in February five redesign plan of Evaton has been presented to the Political
Steering Committee headed by the MEC and subsequently presented to the Mayoral
Committee.

2.8.7 Rental Stock

The rental stock (houses and flats) is in the process of being transferred in the former
“own affairs” areas. The Gauteng Department of Housing has appointed service
providers pertaining to the transfers.
The following rental housing projects are the subject of transfer.
Leeuhof                                (253 units)
Sonhof Flats                           (78 units)
Low Cost Housing in Vanderbijlpark (152 units)
Housing Units: Rust-ter-Vaal           (25 units)

The study by Matthew Nell and Associates, 2002) revealed that the municipality (ELM)
owns 718 units of housing stock for rental housing stock (five buildings with 497 units)
and welfare (three buildings with 221 units). The operating costs for the service are
estimated at R3,4m per annum whereas the income is estimated at R1,9m per annum,
resulting in a deficit of R1,5m per annum.
The municipality also owns six public hostels with 2958 units. The hostels are resulting
in significant losses to Council estimated to be between R20m to R24m per annum
(Matthew Nel and Associates, 2005)

An investigation into the options available regarding these assets has been finalized
(Matthew Nel and Associates) and it is recommended as follows:
Retain the hostel stock but outsource the full management function
Lease welfare housing to Welfare Organization
Transfer housing stock
Transfer flats to Housing Association
No final and formal decisions have been taken with regard to the above.

2.8.8 Eradication of Informal Settlements by 2014

In line with Gauteng Provincial Government’s policy to end informal settlements by 2014,
Emfuleni currently developing a plan. A joint venture between housing sector and land
use management would be established within the municipality to execute this task. In
addition, a team consisting of members from Sedibeng and the Gauteng Province is
working together with the housing sector to ensure consistence with time line set by
Department of Housing.



                                                                                        46

Challenges

   •   The housing backlog is increasing at an alarming rate.
   •   Low cost housing is still located on the periphery and leads to social exclusion of
       communities;
   •   Sale of RDP houses and dual ownership;
   •   Proliferation of informal settlements beyond the approved urban edge
   •   Create unplanned and unhealthy living environment and there is also the threat
       Shack fires;
   •   High unemployment level leading to non payment of services
   •   Progress in housing delivery is being undermined by rapid. Urbanization and a
       high population growth rate (2.85%) which is higher than the national rate
       (2.2%);
   •   Lack of strategy on management of informal settlements;
   •   Lack of strategy on housing developments;
   •   Lack of equipment (for example, Vehicles, Computers and other necessities)



                                                                                       47

   •   Shortage of professional staff;
   •   Lack of adequate systems to handle housing and property agreements and
       waiting lists;
   •   The Council has provided a higher level of infrastructure services and
       communities cannot afford these services;
   •   Priority for resettlement of beneficiaries is given to informal settlement inhabitants
       and backyard dwellers are left out;
   •   The provincial government expects the local council to make provision for
       bulk services, which tend to be expensive and beyond the affordability of the
       Council

RIVERFRONT DEVELOPMENT ELAN GROUP / SEDGARS

Van Riet and Louw was appointed as Development agent for the Phase 1 regional
Facilities which resulted in the successful completion of the Emerald Safari Resort in
2001.

A master plan with regard to the riverfront development was drafted and approved by
Council.

Van Riet Louw was requested by Council to facilitate the implementation of Phase 2, the
Emfuleni Waterfront Development which was earmarked in the master plan as a local
facility.

Van Riet Louw put the development to tender and followed the tender process and after
thorough evaluation, it was resolved that the Elan group (preferred bidder) and Sedgars
(the second preferred bidder) forms a partnership.

The tender was awarded to Elan Group/Sedgars during December 2004 at a purchase
price of R15 000 000-00(Fifteen Million Rand).

VAAL MALL DEVELOPMENT

Certain land previously known as portion 133 of the farm Vanderbijlpark 550 IQ, portion
148 of the farm Vanderbijlpark 550 IQ, portion 64 and 65 of the farm Vanderbijlpark 550
IQ were sold to Vaal Mall Property Investments at a purchase price of R24 290 000,00
(excluding VAT).

The sale of the specific land was already prioritized during the late 1990’s. Different
proposals were received but due to financial constraints, the developments did not
realize. Council then again invited proposals for the sale of the land during October
2003. The need for a shopping complex with the status of a regional Shopping Complex
in the Vaal Triangle was identified in the 1990’s. Studies revealed that there is a strong
outflow of capital out of the region to regional shopping centres around Johannesburg.
River Square was not conveniently located to serve the larger population of the Vaal
Triangle which includes Vanderbijlpark and Sasolburg. A regional shopping centre on
the identified site in Vanderbijlpark was excellently located to serve another large
component of the Vaal Triangle population and neighbouring area.

Portion 219 of the farm Vanderbijlpark 550 IQ (a consolidation of portion 148 of the farm
Vanderbijlpark 550 IQ and portion 64 of the farm Vanderbijlpark 550 IQ and the
remaining extent of portion 41 of the farm Vanderbijlpark 550IQ) was registered in the
name of Vaal Mall Developments (Pty) on 8 March 2006. The purchase price of R19 680
980-00 was paid over to Council on 9 March 2006.

The remaining portion, portion 222 of the farm Vanderbijlpark (consolidation of remaining
portions), 3, 2 hectares is in process of registration. The purchase price for these
portions is R4 609 020-00. The documents for registration have been signed and
registration will take place within the following three weeks. These portions are situated
on the southern side of the development adjacent to Austin Roberts Street. Phase two of
the development will be built on these portions. It is not known at this stage of what the
development will consist of and when it will be initiated.

Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Environment will issue a permit to Council
after completion of Council’s responsibilities. At that stage a further legal process will
have to be followed by the developer with regard to amendments to the permit which can
take up to a further 2 years.

VOSLOOPARK WATER FRONT

The 99 year lease was taken over by Nimro 189 (Pty) Ltd during May 2006. The
remaining period of lease is approximately 91 years.

The lessee has applied for the rezoning of the property to allow them to covert the
existing buildings to special residential. According to the lessee this has become
necessary due to the fact that the property has been vacant for approximately 4 years
during which time the need for places of refreshment in that area has declined to nil.

The lessee has now approached the Council with the view of converting the lease to
freehold. A report in this regard will be prepared for consideration by Council.




                                                                                       51

BUSINESSES IN FORMER DISADVANTAGE AREAS

A policy for the transfer of businesses in the former disadvantage areas was prepared
but was put on hold due to the possible inclusion of some of these businesses (where
the buildings and land belongs to Council) into the 20 Priority Townships Programme.
The projects have been submitted to DPLG and approval is awaited.

The policy has been amended to proceed with the transfer of church stands as well
businesses where the land belongs to Council but where the business was erected by
individual occupants.

DISPOSAL POLICY

A revised disposal policy has been drafted to be in line with the provisions of the Supply
Chain Management Policy and the provisions of the Municipal Management Finance Act
(56 of 2003)

The policy report has been completed but certain issues with regard to procedures for
lease of Council land still needs to be clarified with the Procurement Section.

MORATORIUM ON DISPOSAL OF COUNCIL PROPERTY

A moratorium on the sale of Council property has been imposed administratively
pending the finalization of the Land Audit.

As mentioned, the audit has now been finalized and the property section is in the
process of inspections to verify occupancy/vacancy.

A letter was received from the National Housing Department requesting Council to
impose a moratorium on the disposal of municipal owned land in order to finalize
procedures on the sale of land. The National Housing Department is developing
procedures and systems to reach their objective to create sustainable human
settlements. According to the Department, the unavailability of land is hindering this
objective.

A report to Council in the above regard is in process.

CHALLENGES

A computerized database is in the process to be established. A consultant was
appointed to do the Land Audit for all Council properties. The Audit was completed and
presentations were done to the Senior Management Committee and Mayoral Committee
during October and November 2006.

The Land Audit is in the process to be incorporated into the Geographic Information
System by Open Spatial Solutions. The company, OPEN SPATIAL SOLUTIONS has
been appointed to implement the GIS for Sedibeng District Municipality as well as for
Emfuleni. The Township registers has not been opened yet and due thereto a major
part of the information on the Land Audit

There are still existing challenges, which must be addressed in order to have a complete
up to date Land Audit system.


                                                                                       52

       the Land Use Section and will also be submitted to the Mayoral Committee for
       information.
   -    Due to this, the individual erven as indicated on the maps at the Surveyor
       General does not correspond with the information at the Deed Office. The areas
       where township registers have not yet been opened are registered as farm
       portions at the Deeds Office.
   -   Illegal structures and occupancy is an ongoing process, which needs to be
       monitored on an on-going basis. It is however necessary to mention that when an
       application is received; the specific property is inspected before submission of a
       report.

Two officials have been appointed to assist with the development of a central database
for the property section. This database will include all information with regard to
agreements, sale and lease transactions, tenders, valuations requested, legal
documents received and signed, costs involved in transactions and income derived from
sale of Council properties. All correspondence will be captured and would be
electronically available. The Quidity system will be utilised for this purpose. The property
section is in the process to implement the system in co-operation with the IT department
and the company QUIDITY.

Due to a shortage of staff for three years, the lease agreements were not maintained
properly. The expired lease agreements have however been followed up from date of
appointment of the two officials and the process with the Legal section has been
completed approximately 60%.

A letter has been received from the National Housing Department requesting Councils to
impose a moratorium on the sale of Council property. A report is in the process to be
prepared and will be submitted to Council for consideration.

2.9 ROADS AND STORMWATER

2.9.1 Introduction

                                                                                         53
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
   •   Cleaning of stormwater pipe system and catch pits.
   •   Repair kerbs and paving

2.9.2 Infrastructure

The following inventory of services needs to be maintained by this Department.

Tar Roads              1 351km
Gravel Roads           1 031km
Road Marking           144 041m2
Traffic Signs          13 275 no
Stormwater pipes       462km
Open Channels          194km
Catch pits              11 155 no

The total road network of Council consists of a total of 1351km length of tarred roads.

1351km          =      Replacement Value R1 742.00 million

This road network hirargy is made up as follows:

Primary                :      18%    -       243.18km
Secondary              :      15%    -       202.65km
Main Tertiary          :      14%    -       189.4km
Tertiary               :      53%    -       716.03km
                              100%           1351km

The tar road network is deteriorating at an alarming rate due to a lack f preventative,
maintenance, funds especially via the provision of an annual Reseal and Rehabilitation
Program.

A survey carried out by V&V Consulting Engineers in October 2001 and updated in June
2004 profiled the structural and surface conditions of Emfuleni’s paved roads as follows:

                       Percentage of Total Roads
Condition of Roads
                       Paved (Structure)       Paved (Surfacing)
Very Poor              7%                      10%
Poor                   6%                      19%
Fair                   28%                     27%
Good                   28%                     28%
Very Good              43%                     16%
Total :                100%                    100%

The average condition of the road network can be summarized as follows:
             Emfuleni Maximum
Surfacing    29%           10%
Structure    13%           5%

Tar road network is the backbone any economy and acts as the vein’s to carry goods,
material, products, commuter back and forth linking residential suburbs, CBD, industrial
areas is to make sure goods is delivered on time and low cost.



                                                                                          54
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

With the percentage of road network falling within the poor to very poor category road
users cost is increased dramatically due to damage to tires, suspension parts, shocks
etc due to potholes and uneven riding surfaces.

A total of 381km of tar roads needs to be addressed as of now, but can be spread over 5
years to reduce financial impact.

2.9.3 Funding Requirements

Required:

The total value of the roads and storm water infrastructure is:

        Roads         R1 742 million
        Stormwater    R 853 million
        Total         R854 742 000 million

Good practices through South Africa and the world indicate to maintain infrastructure
efficiently at least between 3-5% per annum of the replacement value is required on an
annual basis to address preventative maintenance effectively and maintain a proper
level of service for tar road network.

        At 5% the financial requirements of this Department is

5%      x      R1 742 million                =       R87,1 million

5%      x      R853 million                  =       R42,65 million

Minimum Requirement                          =       R129, 75 million

Approved:

Roads (Includes Road Traffic Signs)          =       R39 849 823

Stormwater                                   =       R 8 708 163

Total                                        =       R 48 557 986

Required                                     =       R129, 75 million

Budget 05/06                                 =       R48, 56 million

Shortage                                     =       R81, 19 million

It can be seen to maintain a minimum level of maintenance of the infrastructure within
this Department a shortage of R81, 19 million exists on the operational budget.




                                                                                    55

2.9.4 Planned Maintenance

This is one of the important functions that need to be funded annually without any
questions.

The lack of funding for planned maintenance is creating an accumulative deteriorating
tar road network that will result in the ultimate loss of great portions of the tar road
network.

2.9.5 Annual Resealing Program

This is a program required to address roads where surfacing conditions are on the edge
of collapse, which can cause huge cost implications.

The reasoning behind this is that an existing seal/surfacing/wearing course on a road
need to be addressed via the appropriate method before it collapse and new wearing
coarse needs to be implemented via the removal of the old one.

A total of R23 million per annum on a year-to-year basis is required to maintain the
network and prevent collapse.

2.9.6 Impact Reseal Program

The roads if addressed in the next two years will not develop potholes, due to the fact
that the new surfacing placed will be done in time. Failure to do so means that these
roads will also join the category needing rehabilitation which means an increase of 10-
fold in cost for repair if not provided for, in the next two financial years.

2.9.7 Rehabilitation Program

A rehabilitation program as required for the (19%) 258km that falls within the poor
category, but can still be saved with some structural work required and a total new
wearing course.

To address this, an amount of R22,4million per annum is required over the next 5 years
preventing these roads from total structural failure (±R433 000 per km).

This physically includes the roads as mentioned in (7) above.

If the funds are not provided over a 5-year period, the roads mentioned above need to
be converted to gravel roads in the next year and an additional 5 – 10 km will be added
to this list annually.

2.9.8 Return Periods of Maintenance

The table indicate the return periods obtained with the existing level of funding and the
required return period to maintain infrastructure to keep it as an asset.




                                                                                      56

       Road Traffic Signs            2-7 Years                    38 years

2.9.9 Tarred Roads

The roads are designed for a specific lifespan and need to be rejuvenated from time to
time. Good Roads within Emfuleni are those that are structurally sound, that is no
repairs are needed. Fair roads are those that are starting to show signs of defects.
These roads need to be sealed to prevent the ingress of water. Water penetrates
structural layers through cracks and lubricates soil particles causing gliding of particles
which leads to formation of potholes and pumping. Bad roads are those that have
potholes, rutted and pumping. These are the roads that need immediate attention
because riding quality is bad and very much unsafe for road users.

2.9.10 Gravel Roads.

The major cause of deterioration of gravel roads is the sleep gradient with lack of
drainage system. Gravel needs to be imported and be placed on the road again because
it gets washed away by rain.

2.9.11 Potholes

The lifespan of roads is expected to last for at least ±10 years. The conditions of roads in
Emfuleni Local Municipality are in a bad state. The resealing has not been done as
prescribed by pavement management system; hence the deterioration has taken its tall.
There is an urgent need to improve all roads within the municipality.

Six patching teams have taken on, an Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP). The
impact is that the programmed will be reduced by 60%i.e. what has been programmed
for 5 years will then be completed in 3 years provided the teams are kept continuously.
The resealing programmed has to be kept up with so that the development of new
potholes is prevented.

2.9.12 Road Traffic Signs

The road traffic signs and markings are not 100% compliant with the Road Traffic Act of
1996. In most cases areas that affected are the newly developed areas. There is an



                                                                                         57
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
urgent need to provide these newly developed areas with signs that are compliant with
the Act and improve roads signs and markings of other places within the municipality. In
addition, new developed areas had not been provided with street names boards and this
is also essential.

2.9.13 Transportation

The state of transport infrastructure it’s not in a bad condition, even though road
infrastructure proves otherwise. This had been evident in rural areas including marginal
and low income areas such as Sebokeng, Evaton, Boipatong, and Bophelong. At least
half of the population in Emfuleni uses bicycles or walk to both work and school. Little or
no attention at all has been given to the improvement of cycling and side walking. In
addition, the needs of those who are physically disabled are also neglected and there is
increasing demand to provide accessibility for this portion of the population. Private car
ownership is low and taxis are only responsible less than a quarter of the entire
population. Rail infrastructure is underutilized, irrespective of its affordability. This had
been a result poor connectivity network between the rail and road infrastructure.

2.9.14 Vereeniging Airport (Aerovaal)

Vereeniging Airport is located within a proclaimed aeronautical township, Aerovaal
approximately 11km north of Vereeniging and 4km north-west of Meyerton. The airport
has two runways and hangar facilities to accommodate approximately 64 planes. It has
the capacity to handle freight and handled an average of 80 tons of freight per month in
1993. The airport is situated within the airspace of Johannesburg International and
therefore air traffic has to be co-coordinated from their control tower.

Challenges:

   •   Potholes
   •   Accumulative Deteriorating Service Network
   •   Lack of resealing planned maintenance
   •   Lack of necessary equipments
   •   Insufficient MIG funds
   •   Lack of own funding for capital work
   •   Restrictions on the area of application for grant funding
   •   Lack of sufficient funding to maintain existing infrastructure
   •   Additional Housing/Suburbs added without provision for adequate resources

2.10 PARKS AND CEMETERIES

Since the Services provider had taken over the management of cemeteries, 6 years
back, there was no approved budget for the cemeteries. The little equipment what was
used for the cemeteries on that point was transferred to the Parks Department. All the
lawn mowers were old. Therefore it was written off and never been replaced. The
cemeteries function was transferred to solid waste, still with no resources.

The caretaker went n retirement, the only personnel available is senior engineering
technician who commenced on the 1st November 2006. The plan is to convert the care
taker’s building into offices for the cemetery maintenance staff.

It is the responsibility of Emfuleni Local Municipality to maintain these cemeteries.
Emfuleni Local Municipality maintained these cemeteries. Grass has been cut
thoroughly from April to July 2006. They look cleaner than they were five years back.

2.10.1 Conditions of cemeteries

In Jacobskop cemetery there are 2 hectares left, which will have 3, 560 graves. The
average number of burials is currently 403 per month. The number of burial shave
increased due to the closure of Evaton cemetery in November 2005. All burials from
Evaton and Sebokeng are directed to Jacobskop cemetery.
Vanderbijlpark cemetery has 1 hectares left, and therefore 7 120 graves can be
accommodated in future. There are 79 burials per month in this cemetery. Two portions
which are underdeveloped have twelve hectares which leaves 6 month of burials in
these portions.

The council has different burial tariffs at these different cemeteries. The following
cemeteries have been fenced through MIG funding:

Evaton Cemetery (completed in July 2006)
Vuka Cemetery - Sharpeville (completed in September 2006)
Pelindaba - Sharpeville (completed in September 2006)

2.10.2 Audit of cemeteries

Evaton cemetery is now a redundant cemetery as from 1-12-2005. Progress on
Doornkuil is still outstanding as Sedibeng District Municipality did not commence with
phase 1 of the cemetery. According to the MPU manager Doornkuil development needs
R50 million. This problem is handled by DLG in Gauteng. Land Use Development is
busy with investigation of Emfuleni land for cemetery.

2.12 The Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP)

It (EPWP) is one of government’s short-to-medium term programmes aimed at
alleviating and reducing unemployment. The EPWP will achieve this aim through the
provision of work opportunities coupled with training. Government’s medium-to-long
term programmes to address unemployment include increasing economic growth,
improving skills levels through education and training, and improving the enabling
environment for industry to flourish. The programme involves reorientation line
functions budgets so that government expenditure results in more work opportunities,
particularly for unskilled labour. EPWP projects will therefore be funded through the
normal budgetary processes, through the budgets of line-function departments,
provinces and municipalities.

Opportunities for implementing the EPWP have been identified in the infrastructure,
environmental, social and economic sectors. In the infrastructure sector the
emphasis is on creating additional work opportunities through the introduction of
labour-intensive construction methods. Labour –intensive construction methods
involve the use of an appropriate mix of labour and machines, with a preference for
labour where technically and economically feasible, without compromising the quality
of the product.

2.14 Disaster Management

The South African supreme law (Constitution No. 108 of 1996) provide the national
and provincial government a legislative competency to draw up disaster management
legislation in Schedule 4 and 5 A. Section 1 of the Municipal Structures Act No. 117
of 1998 there are three categories of municipalities in South Africa. Emfuleni would
fall in category B, meanwhile Sedibeng would form part of category C municipalities.
The Disaster Management Act No. 57 of 2002 provides that category C municipalities
should handle the functions of disaster management and formulate relevant structure
as identified in chapter of the above mentioned Act.

According to Section 1 (a) of the Disaster Management Act No. 57 of 2002, disaster
means a progressive or sudden, widespread or localized, natural or human-caused
occurrence which- causes or threatens to cause-
Death, injury or disease; 35
Damage to property, infrastructure or the environment; or
Disruption of the life of a community; and cope with its effects using only their own
resources;
Disaster is of a magnitude that exceeds the ability of those affected by the disaster to
cope with its effects using only their own resources

Meanwhile disaster management means a continuous and integrated multi-sectoral.
multi-disciplinary process of planning and implementation of measures aimed at
preventing or reducing the risk of disasters; mitigating the severity or consequences
of disasters; emergency preparedness; (d)a rapid and effective response to disaster;
and post-disaster recovery and rehabilitation
Disaster management has to be implemented to be able to function as an integrated,
multi-sectoral approach towards planning, disaster risk reduction, emergency
preparedness and disaster recovery.

2.15 FINANCIAL ISSUES

   (1) The Budget Process

The 2007-2008 Multi Year Budget was compiled in accordance with the “Draft
Strategic Budget Policy” which will form part of the final budget document. The
Strategic Budget Policy focuses on a “zero-based budget” approach. This approach
starts with the Operational Plan (that is based on objectives and deliverables from
the high level business plan and IDP), and estimates the expenditures necessary to
execute the plan. It was required from all departments to submit an operational plan.

There was extensive consultation with all managers of cost centres as well as their
strategic managers throughout the budget process by having workshops with them or
meeting them on a one-on-one basis. This consultation / training included both the
Operational Plan phase and the Operating Budget Phase.

The information compiled in the 2007-2008 Multi Year Budget was obtained from
sources in the best possible position to supply that information. Examples include:
General Expenditure – cost center and department managers; salaries and
employee-related costs – Pay Office; depreciation, external interest, provision for bad
debts, insurance – Financial Control.

In no cases at all, were amounts provided by the Budget Office.

The Capital Budget was compiled jointly by the Project Management Unit (PMU) and
the IDP office, using information supplied by the different clusters.

1.1 Executive Summary to the Budget

The 2006/07 of Emfuleni Local Municipality was prepared by Deloitte & Touche and
this is the first Budget to be prepared in-house (other that the 2006/07 adjustment
budget) since Project Consolidate.


The budget is prepared on a multi-year basis, in line with the National Treasury
regulation. The multi-year consist of the current year budget and the
estimate/projected budget for the following two (outer) years. The current year
budget (2007/08) is prepared based on the operational plans which are prepared by
each cluster. The projections for the two outer years are based in current year budget
in increased by projected inflation percentage as provided by National Treasury.

Municipality obtains most of its revenue from sale of water and electricity, provision of
sewer and rates and taxes. Water and electricity are trading services and generate
income. The two services normally has to generate surpluses (profits) and this
surpluses are used to finance and subsidize expenses of services which do not
generate income, like road repairs and maintenance, parks services, mechanical
workshops upkeep, provision of waste management service, provision of library
services, public safety & fire and rescue services etc.

The budget document is divided into three sections namely:

     The consolidated budget

Consolidated budget shows a total budget per cluster and is divided into Expenditure
and Income sections. Enclosed on the summary is the actual expenditure for
2005/06, current year budget (2006/07), proposed budget for 2007/08, percentage


                                                                                      75

increase from 2006/07 budget year and 2007/08 budget year and projections for the
two outer year. Budget growth are mainly driven by general increase in inflation,
general growth in the tax, property rates, water and electricity consumption net and
increase in grants.
The total 2006/07 expenditure budget was R1 465 676 778 and is growing to R1 819
677 075, representing and average growth of 24.15%. This growth was mainly driven
by increase in budgeted critical vacancies (R122, 5 million), special projects (R33
million) and general inflation increase in salaries and general expenses.

     Consolidated votes and cost center totals

The consolidated votes and cost center totals indicate the actual expenditure for
2005/06, budget for 2006/07, proposed budget for 2007/08 and projected budget for
two outer years. The total of the cost centres ties back to the total of the vote as
shown in the consolidated budget summary document (referred to above).

     Capital budget

The capital budget project detail the amounts budget for to roll out capital programs
from both grants and own funds. The capital budget and project to the funded all
emanate from the IDP document. Only those capital project listed in the IDP
documents may be prioritized and funded out of the capital fund. The current draft
IDP had capital projects in excess of R500 million and this project must be prioritized
and funded over a period of time.

The total proposed capital budget for 2007/08 amounts to R151 334 571 made up
mainly of R64 million from Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG), R20 million Emfuleni
(MIG) Counter Funding, R24,1 million rolled over projects, R25 million from
restructuring grant and R13,5 million from own funds. A list of all capital project is
annexed to the budget document.

     Other supporting tables

Other supporting documentation submitted are tables which indicate municipal
incomes by source of revenue. This table indicates municipal services and their
contribution to municipal coffers. Electricity service contributes R474, 4 million (26%),
Water services R299, 5 (16%) and rates and taxes (13%) and grants R384, 5 (21%)
and the major contributor to municipal revenue.

The second table indicates expenditure by category which indicates the major cost
driver of council. It can be seen from tables that council has budgeted to spend 27%
of income on Salaries (R496, 6 million), 53% on general expenses (R1 005, 8 million)
and 7% on repairs and maintenance (R125 million). The general expenses include
the cost of purchasing water and electricity from both Rand Water and Eskom. The
cost of water and electricity amounted to an average of R60 million a month in the
current financial year which gives a total of R720 million per annum. This makes up
approximately 85% of the general expenses.

The third table gives a breakdown on salaries between staff salaries and Councillors
allowances. Council currently has approximately 2 500 staff members and 85
Councillors. This translates to a ration of 96% of made up of administrative staff and
4% by councillors. The salary budget amounts to R496, 6 (including budgeted critical
vacancies of R122, 5 mil) broken down as administrative staff (R476, 6 million) and
Councilor allowances of R20, 0 million. Reference should be made to the National
treasury comments on the restructuring grant conditions that Emfuleni salary costs

General comments of proposed 2007/08 budget

In total, the operating budget for the 2007/08 financial year amounts to R1,819 million
which represents an increase of R354 million in expenditure (24%) and increase of
R226 mil (14%) in revenue from the approved budget of 2006/07. For the 2008/09
and 2009/10 the budgeted amounts are R1 856 805 596 and R1 971 807 831
respectively, which represents an average increase of 5% in both outer years
respectively.

In the 2007/08 budget year, the budget increase were driven mainly by critical
vacancies which were fully budget for at a cost of R 122 544 487 and special project
which are budgeted for at R33 672 292 in order to accelerate service delivery. All
critical vacancies are budgeted for within each cluster’s budget, showing significant in
each cluster’s budget. IN 2006/07 budget, critical vacancies were not fully budgeted
for; instead, a pool fund of R40 mil was set aside to fill vacancies on a first come first
serve basis.

A summary of financial implication of critical vacancies per cluster is annexed on
page 29 of the budget document, indicating that Engineering Services (R42, 5 mil)
and Public Safety (R53, 3 mil) account for 78% of the total critical vacancies
budgeted for. It is important to note that the National Treasury, through their
Restructuring Grant report have consistently raised their concern about Emfuleni
salary expenditure which are making up 21% of the expenses, which is lower that the
benchmark of 28% - 30%.

(5) Indigents Provision

The identification process of indigents started early in the 2006/2007 financial
year. Emfuleni Local Municipality received approximately 36 000 applications.
After the verification process it is estimated that the indigents could be 30 000.
Provision for indigents have been made to the value of R76 669 768 in the
2007/2008 budget. It is recognized approximately R130 million is required to
fully fund the indigents households and this additional provisions will be
catered for during the adjustment budget process, once departmental actual
spending have been assessed.




                                                                                                                  79
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

(6) Provision for Bad Debts

The provision for bad debts for 2007/2008 is much less in comparison to
previous years. The provision for bad debt is raised in Engineering services
and Mesti-A-Lekoa cost centre budgets to the total of R70 000 000. The
current provision in the balance sheet is approximately R2 billion. With the
establishment and functioning of the debt collection department, coupled with
revenue enhancement project and the data clean up process, it is expected
that this will have a positive impact and therefore the provisions have been
lowered. Should the need arise for the provision to be increased; it will have to
be addressed in the revised budget and surpluses generated.

(7) Trading and Non Trading Services

Trading services should function on a cost recovery basis plus a mark up that
must realize a surplus. The surplus realized from the trading services may be
used to subsidize rates and other unfulfilled mandates. If the net effect results
in a deficit, it is apparent that the tariff is not aligned to the cost of the service.
The table below illustrates surpluses for electricity and sewer and a deficit for
water.
       Service           Income                Expenditure           Deficit/Surplus
                         2006/07                 2006/07
 Electricity      R538,731,000        R436,959,413               R101, 771,587
 Water            R359, 549,270       R321, 105,014              R38, 444,256

 Electricity      R564, 320,553       R489, 190,252              R75,130,301
 Water            R315, 216, 259      R329, 288,592              (R14,072,333)
 Sewer            R155, 065, 655      R71, 663, 942              R71, 663,942


When looking at the above table, there appears to be a decrease in revenue
for water. In 2006/07 revenue for water included an amount of R74, 000,000
from the equitable share which was incorrectly allocated. By removing the
R74, 000,000 from revenue for water, the budgeted amount for 2006/07 is
R285, 549,270. When comparing 2006/07 to 2007/08 after adjusting the
figures,           it is clear that there is an increase in revenue for water by
approximately 10%. Although a water service is supposed to be trading at a
surplus, it is trading at a loss.

(8) Revenue in the Political Office:

The amount of R239 675 that is currently in the political offices as “income” is
actually income from assessment rates. The budget office recognizes that this
is incorrect, but it should be noted that this incorrect allocation is of a historical
nature and it will be corrected when BCX make changes to the chart of
accounts to be in line with GFS classifications. This correction can not be
made before approval as Council run the risk of loosing some important
historical financial information. The correction will be done during 2007/08
financial year.




                                                                                       80

It should be noted that according to 2007/08 Dora the Restructuring Grant
allocation should be R35, 000,000. Emfuleni Local Municipality received an
amount of R50, 000, 000 in March 2007. This was the last tranche of the
Restructuring Grant. At that point in time, the revised budget was finalized and
loaded. Therefore, the amount of R50, 000,000 has been brought into account
in the 2007/08 budget to enable the council to spend the funds.

(10) Variances:

Due to the shift from incremental based budgeting to zero based budgeting,
there appears to be a lot of variances over 50%. Attached as annexure “A” an
explanation to all variances over 50%.

(11) MIG:

In accordance with Dora the MIG funding allocation for Emfuleni Local
Municipality is R58, 291,166 plus the SMIF funding of R5,600,000 which
totals to R63, 891,166. It should be noted that the R63, 891,166 is the Dora
allocated for the National financial year. In accordance with the PMU Emfuleni
Local Municipality will not receive SMIF funding which leaves a total funding
of R58, 291,166 which is equivalent to national financial year ending 31 March
2008.

The capital project list tin the 2007/2008 capital budget amounts to R58,
291,166 less the amount of R1, 308,000 which lies in the operating budget.
The Dora allocation further defines the transfers for the municipal financial
year which is from 1 July 2007 to 30 June 2008 as R65, 920,000. This is the
amount that is recognized as income in the budget; however the capital list

The payroll costs have increase by R121, 7 million representing the total
budgeted critical vacancies at Emfuleni. Public safety had the highest critical
vacancy of R53, 3 million followed by Engineering Services at R42, 5 million.

During the budgeting process of 2005/6 critical vacancies were not fully
budgeted for, instead, a pool fund of R40,0 million was created by Deloitte &
Touche from which critical vacancies were funded on a first come first serve
basis. In a quest to improve service delivery in the municipal area, Finance
department decided to follow a deferent approach in budgeting for crititical
vacancies.

The budget office obtained staff establishment listings from the pay office as
at 30November 2006 for each cost centre (department) and requested the
each departmental manager to:
    - verify the staff establishment,
    - highlight staff who has moved from a department to another,
    - identify all critical and non critical posts

All filled positions and critical vacancies were costed and budgeted for in the
2007/08 budget.

            Electricity                   the lump sum provision of critical vacancies in 2006/07

5103-05     MMC –Finance                  There is an increase in personnel costs in 2007/08.This relates to
                                          an employee being paid from an incorrect cost centre and will be
                                          rectified in the revised budget, when the HR department advises
                                          where the cost should be allocated.
5103-11     Chief Whip                    There is an increase in personnel costs in 2007/08. In 2006/07
                                          there were no salaries for employees, only that of the councilor.
                                          Therefore this reflects an increase.
5104-02     General Expenditure Council   Income for assessment rates is recognized in this cost centre.
                                          The budget office recognizes that it is incorrect and it should be
                                          rectified. Due to time constraints, this will be only be rectified
                                          when the GFS classification chart of accounts are finalized and
                                          BCX implements the changes on the financial system. There is
                                          expenditure of R 127,283,214 that is made up of interest on
                                          external borrowings (R109, 055), depreciation (R138), insurance
                                          premium (R21) and contribution to capital (127,174,000). The
                                          contribution to capital is the amount that “funds” the capital
                                          budget. This is also an incorrect allocation and it should be taken
                                          from the Finance Department. It will be corrected in the above
                                          mentioned process.

                                          increase is due to the provision of the appointment of a Chief

5301-02    Budget Office                   The increase relates to critical vacancies to be filled in the
                                           2007/08 financial year in order to get a fully capacitated budget

                                           was not budgeted for in 2006/07. This amounts to approximately
                                           R 4,100,000.
5303-01    Debt Collection                 The increase relates to salaries where employees were
                                           reallocated to their correct cost centres. This has been a problem
                                           in the past where departments were being charged for personnel
                                           that did not belong in that cost centre. The 2007/08 budget
                                           process has attempted to rectify this problem to as great an

2.16 INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW

Institutional review cuts across all boarders and impacts on the whole institution.
Based on this assumption the following issues from various departments are
highlighted.

2.16.1 Human Resources

Organizational Structure

The HR unit coordinates the Development of new organizational structure
(Organogram) for the Council.

Discussions on various levels (namely, Senior Management Team and Unions) are
underway on the development of the new organogram.

Transformation

Age analysis -

More than 63% of personnel are over the age of forty (40) years. More than 21% is
in the age group between 50 and 65 years old.

Although age may in certain circumstances indicate experience and proficiency, it
may also have a substantive negative impact in departments and/or divisions where
service delivery needs to be prompt and in order to be considered effective,
department such as Refuse Removal.

Engendering of the Institution

The gender status of the council leaves much to be desired. Top management is still
dominated by white males, followed by black males. Few females, be it black or
white are in managerial positions within the council.

The Sedibeng Gender working committee which comprises of Sedibeng, Emfuleni,
Lesedi and Midvaal local municipalities have been established. The working group is
composed of councillors and the technocrats from these municipalities.

The council has approved and established the Section 79 Gender Committee, the
women’s caucus as well as the gender desk in line with the Sedibeng working group.
The terms of reference have also been approved. The process of drafting a district
gender and sexual harassment policies are underway. In essence, all the systems
that are required for a functional gender desk are in place.

The challenge that faces the desk is the implementation part thereof. The gender
desk is operating on an ad hoc basis and has no dedicated staff members allocated
to it, including other resources. The council took a resolution that the desk should
reside in the Mayors office. Another greatest challenge is to actively involve the
community of Emfuleni in the adoption and implementation of programmes of action.

Office accommodation and space

The offices occupied by Human Resources and in particular the Personnel
Administration are not in good condition. What aggravates the situation is that the
very same offices are the “front window” for those who seek employment to Council.
The offices give an impression of disorder, a dysfunctional organisation for those who


                                                                                   85
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
even desire to serve it. The Human Resources offices should in particular be
renovated as a matter of urgency. This challenge is extended to all departments who
are without adequate office space for staff.

Contract Employees

The ideal situation would be that only employees who report to the Municipal
Manager should be considered as contract employees, the situation currently is not
satisfactory.

There is a tendency of employing people as temporary workers while the type of
work to be done is of a continuous nature and the municipality is obliged to do that
particular function. This practice is particularly done in the waste management
department.


Current Statistics:

Casual employees (day to day)               178
Temporary employees (month to month)        68
Seasonal employees                          37
Employees on contract                       05

Staff acting in higher position

The Municipal Manager has appointed all three Deputy Municipal Managers (DMMs),
The Chief Executive Auditor and the Chief Financial Officer, two (DMMs) have
started working and the other two would start working on the 1st of July 2007.

There is however also no consistency with regard to treatment acting on higher
positions for an example, in Boipatong Library a general worker also from time act as
an Assistant Librarian when the latter is on leave and some time for a month. The
general worker never gets to receive the acknowledgement of the responsibilities that
she has to endure in the absence of her much more qualified colleague. Simply put,
it’s unfair!

Long service recognition and awards

In the last report it was stated that in the past employees were awarded long service
recognition in the form of leave days they could encash. They were also awarded
financial awards for having loyally served Council for a period equal or in excess of
20 years and that the practice had since been ceased. The basis for the stoppage
had not been approved at the Bargaining Council and became therefore difficult to
justify. The situation has since been rectified.

Policy review

HR policies and decisions of Provincial and National Bargaining Council have to be
reviewed and implementation thereof announced to employees

A number of employees have been provided with new Conditions of Services as
approved at National Bargaining Council.

Decisions concerning staff being taken at both Provincial and National level and the
speed and depth that the information is being disseminated through to employees
and the knowledge that employees carry on these issues are inversely proportional.


                                                                                  86
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
Recruitment of personnel and creating internal capacity

There also seems to be discord on who should appoint employees, whether the
responsibility lies with Departmental Heads or whether Departmental Heads should
only provide HR with requisitions and where after HR should provide the required
staff in consideration of policies including the Employment Equity Plan.

There is also lack of direction on appointments that come through as part of Project
Consolidate or MIG funded projects.

The creation of the EAP capability

Employment Assistance Programme (EAP) is an intervention mechanism to assist
the municipal employees to deal positively with a variety of problems, which are likely
or may eventually affect their productivity at workplace.

EAP does not only help in circumventing work related problems but also endeavours
to assist employees to deal with socio-economic problems that they may be faced
with.

The total number of employees for the municipality is in the region of 2 480 (two
thousand four hundred and eighty) and the EAP programme is managed by one
personnel. Employment statistic suggest that for effective and efficient running of the
programme the number of personnel should be at the ratio of 1:350, that is, for every
350 (three hundred and fifty) employees there must be one official. Unfortunately
this is not the case within Emfuleni and this has a negative impact in that the
objectives of the programme cannot be adequately fulfilled.

In relation to the above, the staff turn over within the municipality is very poor.
Notwithstanding the problem of lack of skills and skills development within the
municipality, the are socio-economic problems which have direct impact on employee
performance at workplace and these are not addressed due to the fact that the EAP
is managed by one official. Above all, the support and the resources needed by the
programme are not made available thus defeating the objectives and purpose of the
programme.

Implement effective document retrieval and archive system (1.5 of G Plan)
Personnel Data Base and Records

The personnel database and records system in place is in a terrible state.
Personnel files have in some instances disappeared, in some records files are
missing and some are misfiled.
The computer database is also not reliable and is also not user friendly.
Access to computer database (Venus) is limited to few and even this few are not
satisfactorily knowledgeable around how to access the database.

Integrated HR system

Compilation of Job Descriptions

All municipalities are compelled to submit job descriptions according to their
approved organizational structures to the SALGBC-PJEC for evaluation.

The Emfuleni Local Municipality has up to date not submitted any job descriptions to
PJEC Region 3. The following factors contributed to the non-compliance of
submitting.


                                                                                    87
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
The restructuring process never really came of the ground due to consultants that
made recommendations but they were not involved in the implementation, which
were the most difficult part of the exercise.
Council embarked on doing the restructuring process by itself using a task team
comprising of officials. The revised functional structure was approved by Council
during November 2005 and the post structures (+/- 700 posts) were drawn up
afterwards.
In most instances posts were vacant or officials were acting in higher or other
positions. No continuity existed as the writing of job descriptions is the responsibility
of the supervisors.
PJEC discouraged municipalities to make use of consultants, which forced officials
who are not skilled to write job descriptions. It is only logic that officials can be
resistant, uncertain and uncomfortable to a format that they are not used to.
Most of the officials who underwent training in job description writing have resigned
or have been transferred.
Factors such as ring fencing of Metsi, transfer of Fire and Licensing and the
intervention by Project Consolidate did also affect the process.

The following internal problems were also identified during inspection of the compiled
job descriptions:
    • Officials refuse to sign job descriptions of their actual posts because they
        were acting in higher posts.
    • Officials refused to compile or sign job descriptions because of grievances not
        addressed.
    • Job descriptions reflected the functions that the incumbent performs and not
        the functions of the post.
    • Officials deviated from the approved organizational structure and write the job
        descriptions according to what they think the structure must be.
    • Signatures of management, supervisor, incumbent and labour did not appear
        on all job descriptions.
    • Job descriptions were not compile/submitted in top to bottom order as
        indicated on the organizational structure.
    • Less or more job descriptions were submitted than the actual indicated posts
        on the organizational structure.
    • Correction notes appeared on the original documents.
    • Questionnaires were still in written with pencil or pen.
    • Very few typists, PC’s were available to type the handwritten job descriptions.

Several attempts were made to overcome the above problems and Council is now in
the position whereby job descriptions from certain clusters can be submitted to the
PJEC Regional Committee for evaluation. The job description process will have to
be revisited for certain job descriptions after the new organograms are approved.

Implementation of HRD

Skills Development

One of the critical areas which Emfuleni faces as a challenge is skills development.
In terms of the Skills Development Act organizations are required to draw up
workplace skills plan in every planning year. Emfuleni has been submitting the
Workplace Skills Plan’s to the LGWSETA and were approved each year, and
receiving ground in access of a million rand each year. However the implementation
of Workplace Skills Plan has always not being up to scratch. The intended
programmes were not all fulfilled. This is as a result of lack of capacity and the




                                                                                      88
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
limited budget allocated to training. In other instances line managers did not develop
their departmental training programmes.

Skills Audit

Skills audit which were conducted in March 2004 rivals the following generic training
needs.
    • lack of adequate skills in computer manipulation
    • lack of management, leadership and supervisory skills high levels of illiteracy

The following indicate the skills requirements

Occupational Category                 Skills priority areas
Senior official and managers:         Strategic Management Skills
                                               Project Management Skills
                                               Information Management Skills
                                               Client Service Skills
                                               Policy development Skills
Service workers:                      Client Service Skills
                                               Support service skills
                                               Administration Skills
                                               Information technology skill
Elementary Occupation:                Life skills and basic education training
                                               Hand skills and lifting equipment.

The skills audit also revealed that the organizational qualifications profile was not
favourable. The majority of employees in elementary occupational categories were
below NQF level 1 qualifications Emfuleni has not been able to identify
departmental/divisional objectives in which skills constrains exist apart from those
that were generic. Departmental / divisional skills plan for the line department have
not been established.

Affirmative action

Council has adopted Affirmative action policy and was never fully implemented. To a
great extend all employment barriers identified were dealt with to ensure that the
playing field is levelled for new job entrance to the marked. Little or no consideration
was made to accommodate people with disabilities in this municipality. There have
not been concrete programmes put in place to encourage diversity. Employment
Equity was not dealt with as a strategic imperative because it was not relegated to
line function and not followed through in terms of its implementation.

According to the definition contained on the Stats SA website disability is a physical
or mental handicap which has lasted for six months or more, or is expected to last at
least six months, which prevents the person from carrying out daily activities
independently, or from participating fully in educational, economic or social activities.
33% of the total population within the municipality has sight problems, meanwhile
24% are physically disable and 10% have hearing problems and another 10% have
emotional problems. 11% have multiple disabilities, table 3 below shows total
population with disabilities.




                                                                                      89

Labour Relations

Culture of non-performance

It appears that amongst employees or Personnel cultures of non-performance or
performance at own convenience is prevalent.

Whereas one has to hasten that not all are involved, the truth is some sections
performance borders on poor and disappointing.

It appears that certain employees have taken law unto themselves, while others will
because of their connectivity to the so-called persons in high place, endeavour to
disrupt the service or make it dysfunctional. This manifests itself through line of
communication and the hierarchy being continuously undermined.

The challenge is also to restore disciplinary mechanisms and to root-out unbecoming
behaviours.

It is also necessary that those in “high place” should buy-in into a discipline without
fear or favour.

Occupational Health and Safety

Occupational Health and Safety has no authority recognised and is being sidelined
not only by senior management but also by the institution at large. The importance
and the role of the section is a non-issue notwithstanding the fact that it cut across all
clusters in so far as the Health and Safety of employees are concerned. It is evident
that Occupational Health and Safety will always be the last in any manager’s priority
list. However, in order to assist in ensuring that Occupational Health and Safety is
considered within the Council. It is our submission that Occupational Health and
Safety forms part of the KPA for each Strategic Manager and sectional Managers.

It is indeed important to highlight the fact that the Council has currently employed two
Occupational Health and Safety Officers to render service to Emfuleni Local
Municipality; with the current proposed structural changes. There is a number of
Occupational Health and Safety related matters that had fallen flat. To mentioned but
few, Departmental Safety Committee meeting, Central Safety Committee meeting
etc. It is our view that the cause of this current situation is due to lack of senior
management commitment. Occupational Health and Safety has not and is still not
being given enough attention as compared to other professions within the Council.
Indeed one cannot stand tall and be critical of this profession. However, Occupational
Health and Safety cannot function in isolation, commitment and full participation by
all stakeholders is essential. Again a view is held that the Council does not comply
with the minimum prescribed requirement of the Act and Regulations though it is the


                                                                                       90
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
aim of Occupational Health and Safety that Emfuleni Local Municipality be regarded
as one of the organisation that is committed in ensuring compliance with requirement
of the Act and Regulations, Health and Safety of employees of Emfuleni.

The current staff compliment in as far as Occupational Health and Safety is concern,
is indeed not influential in bringing the necessary changes within the Council
considering the post level where it is currently placed. It is not our submission that
Occupational Health and Safety should be elevated to a position similar to that of the
Municipal Manager or the Strategic Manager. However, statistically 90% of
Occupational Health and Safety matters are ignored due to the fact that no one is
vocal about it at higher level.

Since the appointment of the Occupational Health Nurse, It is true that the medical
station at Duncanville is functional. However, one needs to indicate that is in terms of
Medicine Act. Dispensing of medication should be done by an accredited practitioner
(Doctor), in a situation where the Occupational Health Nurse has to dispense any
medication that has to be done under the supervision of an accredited doctor.
Regrettably the services of the Doctor have not been forth-coming and the reasons
therefore are best known to the Manager, Health department. Responsibilities have
been increased in that HIV/AIDS at workplace also needs an urgent attention and are
being referred to Occupational Health and Safety section.

Challenges

Management participation is highly recommended. It is believed that in order to
ensure compliance with requirements of the Act and Regulations. Occupational
Health and Safety should not only be seen as the responsibility of only Safety
Officers. Occupational Health and Safety should be elevated to a level where one will
be able to be vocal and influence the changes that have to be brought forward.

   •   The alignment of the organogram with Council Objectives is
   •   Development of job descriptions within the framework of the job evaluation
       system named Tuned Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (TASK) format

       wherein age (whether young or old) could be determined as being an
       “inherent requirement” of the job.
   •   Development of a communication strategy.
   •   Appointment a person who will be dedicated solely to address issues of lack
       of communication.
   •   Alignment of HR Policies with new Conditions of Services, new legislation
       governing employment practises and development of HR policies

2.16.2 CORPORATE SERVICES

2.16.2.1 Archives/Records

An electronic documentation management system called The Administrator provided
by Quidity has been installed in the Records Section as a back-up to manual files
and as a means to access records information simpler and faster.

Since the updated programme was installed the records division has not experienced
any problems with regard to the capturing, assigning and retrieving of information.
So far two training sessions were held whereby a total of 13 employees, particularly
secretaries were trained in the usage of the systems, which is to access files
electronically.
There is a need to train senior managers and middle managers in order to enable
them to access files from their offices without literally picking a file from the main
Records Office.
The Records Office is currently using a PC as a server hosting the system, and the
capacity thereof is very limited as it cannot allow many users to access the system
simultaneously. As such, there is a definite need to purchase a Linux server that will
replace the PC server.
During June 2006 the service provider was tasked to investigate the development
and implementation of a resolution tracking feature as an addition to the existing
software.
The installation of the software will make the monitoring of the implementation of the
resolutions to be more efficient and effective, as anybody can monitor progress by
the click of a button.
Almost all Departments are using their own filing systems that do not comply with the
Archives Act, and the administration of some of those files by the respective
Departments is very poor since files get lost and nobody can account for that, and
there is also no backup system for those files.
As such, there is a need to review and link the administration of those files with the
main archive office, without necessarily relocating them to the main office.

2.16.2.2 Storage for Closed Files / Volumes

Closed main records files are stored in three different store rooms and the
arrangement for relocating them to one storeroom, which is in Zone 10 offices, are
well underway. In order to ensure that files are orderly and safely kept for easy
references, it is imperative that the storage facility in Zone 10 offices be renovated
and filing cabinets be purchased.

2.16.2.3 Referral of all Correspondences / Documents to the Main Archive
Offices

It seems as though officials do not see the urgency and need of sending all original
documents i.e. letters, memorandums, reports et cetera to the records division for
capturing and filing. It needs to be mentioned that Council need to abide by the rules
and regulations as set out by the National Archives Act (Act No. 43 of 1996). It has
come to attention that most offices create their own filing systems. It should be
mentioned that this office do not have any problem with the filing of own documents
for easy reference but it should be stressed that a copy of each document must be
sent to the records division for safe custody (30 years) for future references.




                                                                                   92
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
Files are also kept for more than three days by officials. Filing cannot be done,
circulation to all officials cannot take place and files are misplaced. Officials even
distribute files among themselves without notifying the section. Proper control over
files can therefore not be done.
There is a need to compile a procedure manual, which will orientate the user
Departments about accessing and forwarding of files within the prescribed time limit.

2.16.2.4 Short electronic messages

The Uniserver SMS System, administrated by the Department provides for single and
bulk SMS’s to be sent by officials at a cost to Council much less than a telephone
call. The convenience of the system further lies in the fact that a single message can
be sent to a large number of recipients at one time, bypassing the time consuming
exercise of making the same number of telephone calls. The Department is in the
process of opening the SMS Systems to more users with the intention to save on
telephone costs. Since 1 July 2006 to date a total of 11 175 short messages have
been sent by the current 50 users at a cost of R3 911, 25.

2.16.2.4 Reliable recording of proceedings

At the end of June 2005 a new voice/sound recording system was purchased for the
accurate and reliable capturing of proceedings at meetings/disciplinary hearings but
the system is not living up to expectations and eventually use is still made of the old
unreliable system. There is a need to purchase good quality and reliable recording
system.

2.16.2.5 Administration of contracts

The contract register was retyped, re-indexed and all available contracts are
captured on Word for easy retrieval. Missing contracts, particularly as resolved upon
from 2000 - 2005, were identified and user Departments are engaged to avail
originals, or certified copies for safekeeping as well as to remind the Departments
about due contracts 3 months before they expire.

Due to the fact that administration of contracts was not centralised, some contracts
are not accounted for and some were not reduced to writing though they are running
and payments are effected.

User Departments need to be co-operative and assist the process of updating the
contract register.

2.16.2.6 Reception Desk

The reception desk is currently manned by private security company personnel who
barely understand the organisational setup, which leads to misdirection of visitors.
There is a need to urgently fill one or two positions of the receptionists who will be
capacitated to render a professional service. The foyer also needs urgent renovation
work to facelift the main entrance.

2.16.2.7 Insufficient Office Space for Meetings

The Council consists of 85 members and its meetings are held in the Mayors Parlour
and the space is extremely limited considering that meetings are open to the public
as well.
During hot summer days when the meeting is experiencing full capacity the air
conditioning system becomes ineffective. There is a definite need to build or convert


                                                                                    93

existing building to a Council Chamber which will meet applicable legislative
standards.
The frequency of the sound system in the Mayors Parlour is linked to the one used
by the traffic officers, and that interferes with the meeting proceedings and also
compromises the quality of recordings. The possibility of separating the frequencies
needs to be investigated and effected if applicable.

2.16.2.8 Committee Services

A procedure regarding the flow of reports from the author department to the authority
with the delegated powers to resolve on the matter is in place but is more often not
being followed which results in late submission of reports as well as reports being
referred directly to the Mayoral Committee meetings without first serving at Senior
Management Meeting and Section 79/80 meetings. Non-adherence to the mentioned
procedure delays a decision making process as reports are often referred back.
Deferred reports also over burdens the budget as they have to be submitted again at
a later stage to the relevant Committee meeting. Procedure manuals that are referred
to Senior Managers for follow-up and implementation needs to be cascaded down to
other officials in their Departments.

2.16.2.9 Communication

Telephones are the most important tools of communication and transmission of
information from one place to the other, especially in cases of emergency. At least
45% of the municipality’s population do not have telephone lines within their
households, even within the area they are living in; they have to go to other location
to be able to access telecommunication. Only 14% have both telephone lines and
cellphones within their households, meanwhile 12% do not have cell phones but
telephone lines only. Table 12 below shows how telecommunication is distributed
within the municipality.

A multi-directional communication strategy adopted by Council during May 2002
which is intended to receive and convey information to and from all its Strategic
Stakeholders has not yet been implemented successfully. Apparently there seems to
be some officials who are not aware about the existence of the strategy. The yearly
plan intended to give effect to the strategy is applied on an ad hoc basis and
interfered with by other Departments.

There is no full time dedicated programmer to continuously update Council web-site
and the site is at least 80% outdated. The Council web-site has been functional
since the second week of September month and will be continuously updated. The
appointment of a full-time Web-Site Administrator and material capacitation of the
Section will address the challenges faced.



                                                                                   94
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
Most Departments hold staff meetings seldom and eventually dissemination of
information to the lower levels is negatively affected. The Departments need to avail
meetings schedules and minutes to the Communication Department.

2.16.2.10 Newsletters and media conferences

Internal newsletter which is intended to convey messages, policies, decisions, news,
to staff, is issued quarterly and as a result it does not become an effective tool to
convey information due to time lapse which results in stale news.

Monthly external newsletter which is intended to be a tool of communication between
Council and Communities is limited to one A4 size page and as a result the quality as
well as quantity of news is compromised. Availability of funding will enable the
Section to issue out internal newsletters monthly and external newsletters increased
to four A4 size pages.

Media conferences are seldom held which results in Council being more on a
reactive mode than pro-active mode and the relationship between Council and local
media as well as other strategic stakeholders is not a healthy one.

The existing silo mentality remains a serious challenge as it constitute non-
cooperation of the Departments in terms of availing information in good time for
preparing newsletters as well as continuous updating of the web-site. However, the
appointment of staff in the Communication Department remains a serious challenge
on its own.

2.16.2.11 Suggestion Boxes

Suggestion boxes are placed at 5 decentralized offices to facilitate communication
between Council and community members but, unfortunately, this means of
communication is not achieving its intended objective. There is a need to capacitate
members of community regarding public participation and the enforcement of Batho-
Pele principles, in consultation with the Speaker’s office.

Summary of Challenges

   •   Late delivery of Agendas to Councillors.
   •   Continuous postponement of meetings.
   •   Quality of reports is often compromised.
   •   Decision making process is delayed.
   •   Adoption of dubious resolutions.
   •   Decentralized records systems that are not linked to the main records.
   •   Archives Act No. 43 of 1996 is not complied with.
   •   Missing documents and/or files.
   •   Reluctance to shift from paper tray to electronic information system.
   •   Improving of Council relations with all Strategic Stakeholders (internal and
       external).
   •   Resources needed to affect communication strategy and plan are limited.
   •   Annual adoption and adherence to the communication plan needed.
   •   Internal staff newsletter to be issued monthly.
   •   Coverage space of external news letter to be increased to four A4 size pages.
   •   Suggestion boxes placed at five decentralized offices for community
       inputs/suggestions need to be popularized.
   •   Articles in both internal and external newsletters to be covered in English and
       other official languages as far as practicable.


                                                                                   95

2.16.3 Legal Services

Introduction

Legal services mainly gives support to all the clusters in the form of prosecutions
and disciplinary enquiries, drafting and vetting of by-laws and policies, litigation, debt
collection, contract management and legal advise.

Disciplinary Enquiries

The function of discipline in the employment is to ensure that employees contribute
effectively and efficiently to the aims and goals of the institution. It is the employer’s
right to ensure that its employees adhere to reasonable standards of efficiency and
conduct. Furthermore, disciplinary of employees is a corrective and not a punitive
measure.

The municipality in its Endeavour to uphold efficiency and good conduct have
conducted several disciplinary enquiries and the current status of these proceedings
are as follows:

   •       To date 71, 8% (51 cases) of the internal disciplinary enquiries have been
           completed and the outstanding 28, 2% of the outstanding matters would
           be completed in the near future. Of the completed matters seventeen
           (17) have been referred either for arbitration or to the labour court. 23,5%
           (4) have been completed and 76,5% (13 cases) are still outstanding

   •       It must be noted that there is high lack of discipline within the municipality
           and that new cases are reported on a monthly basis.

Drafting and Vetting of By-laws and Policies

Establishment of the Municipal Code

A municipal code has been established as provided for by section 15 of the Local
Government: Municipal Systems Act, Act 32 of 2000. The code is in a leaflet form
and filed in the legal library. (Municipal Code is a schedule of all bylaws of the
municipality grouped in terms of the nature of the bylaws). The public can have
access to the code and the bylaws and notices were sent out to the public to inform
them about the code.

Rationalization of by-laws

Between the period 2004 and 2005 the under-mentioned by-laws were promulgated
and are in operation.

   •     Water and Sanitation;
   •     Credit Control and Debt Collection;
   •     Cemetery and Crematoria;
   •     Standard Street bylaws;
   •     Aerial;
   •     Waste Management;
   •     Electricity;
   •     Standing Orders




                                                                                       96
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
Drafted by-laws which are under discussion with the various clusters/departments
are the following:

   •     Traffic;
   •     Keeping of animals;
   •     Public Nuisance;
   •     Fire and Emergency;
   •     Ward Committees;
   •     Advertising;
   •     Public/Street Trading;
   •     Swimming;
   •     Furnishing of information to the Public;
   •     Use of community facilities;
   •     Child Care Services;
   •     Keeping of Food;
   •     Control of settlement and
   •     Accommodation establishment.

The next steps to be undertaken to have the bylaws promulgated are:

   •   Public Comments. The CDWs from the forty three (43) wards have been
       trained on by-laws and the processes to be followed so that they may assist
       the public with comments.

   •   Approval by Council and

   •   Promulgation by way of an advert in the Government Gazette.

The new National Credit Act, Act No.34 of 2005 together with the proposed new
policy on Landlord/tenant relationship (which will be discussed under debt collection)
has necessitated the reviewal of the Credit Control and Debt Collection Policy and its
bylaws.

Debt Collection

Our debt collection was done by outside attorneys and there was no written services
agreement with the attorneys. As a result of this instructions were suspended.
Suffice to say that a new strategy and systems were put in place to do debt collection
and various workshops were conducted for the mayoral committee. In one of the
workshops the mayoral committee proposed a risk base approach as the best
method for debt collection. A report in this regard will be submitted before the
mayoral committee for formal approval.

Above this a landlord/tenant relationship policy has been proposed and the mayoral
committee is in support of the policy. A report to this effect and draft policy will serve
in the mayoral for formal adoption and approval.

Code of Conduct for Employees and Councillors, Schedule 2 of the Local
Government: Municipal Systems Act, Act 32 of 2000 provides that no employees or
councillors may owe municipal services for a period of over three (3) months.
Employees who owe the municipality have been identified and some have made the
necessary arrangements and monies are deducted from their salaries.

Employees who have registered as indigents have been identified as well and the
necessary disciplinary measures will be undertaken.


                                                                                       97
 EMFULENI IDP2007/08

 Since legal department is a service support all the above actions were done together
 with the Debt Management Department of Finance.

 Contract Management

 For the past years the Auditor General has raised concerns about the lack of contract
 management and all his queries were never addressed (to his satisfaction) by the
 municipality. This is further complicated by the fact that some clusters/departments
 enter into verbal agreements or written agreements with third parties without the
 knowledge or the consent of the municipality. And furthermore, some of the
 contracts are not submitted to the Corporate Services but are kept by clusters or
 departments.

 As to whether contracts are operational, terms and conditions are complied with,
 monthly payments are made (if any) is not known, in most cases. This attitude puts
 the municipality in an awkward position in that some of the contracts have expired
 ages ago and are being enforced or renewed, in some cases unilaterally by third
 parties, to the detriment and loss of the municipality.
 Processes undertaken are:

    •      Identified types of contracts the municipality enters into with third parties;
    •      Have categorized contracts into long term contracts, short term contracts,
           operational and non operational contracts.
    •      Retrieving contracts from clusters and departments.

This exercise is done with the corporate services.

Litigation

Litigation may be divided into civil and criminal proceedings either against the
municipality or on behalf of the municipality.

To date of the 42% of the civil matters have been completed and the 58% are still
pending before the courts of law. Most of the cases have been done internally and this
made a savings on behalf of the municipality.

Challenges:

        Finalize the outstanding labour matters and matters to be addressed hereunder
        are the following:
            • Suspension of employees for more that three (3) months;
            • Non availability of witnesses especially third parties
            • Establishing healthy labour relations and EAP (See HR report)
            • Legal processes to be undertaken to promulgate bylaws
            • Reviewal of the Credit Control and Debt Collection policy and its bylaws
                as well as the Standing Orders.
            • Take disciplinary action against employees who default on municipal
                account and those who have registered a indigents;
            • Develop regulations relating to expropriation of properties
            • Develop a policy on contract management
            • Inter-departmental relationships to avoid unnecessary legal actions
                against the municipality.

2.16.4 Information and Communication Technology

      Currently all IT Services are rendered to ELM by employees of Sedibeng
      District Council on a Service Level Agreement (SLA). These employees were
      formerly all in service of ELM until a decision was taken so centralise IT. On

EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
        Projects
               • Planning and research of projects launched by I.T.,
               • Project management of the abovementioned projects,
               • Upgrade and implementation of enhancements to current systems
                   and hardware.
         During the period July 2005 to November 2006 the following new hardware
         have been deployed:
           390 new PC’s,
           4 servers,
           3 radio links on the Wide Area Network,
           25 laptops,
           Novell Software as the network Platform software,
           Payday software upgrade to windows version.

There are functions that have been outsourced to third party companies such as:
 Maintenance on Venus software and Data Base Administration outsourced to the
Vendors of the financial system, PAYDAY (BCX) as per contract. Something that has
to be mentioned is the Groupwise (E-mail) installation. This project coincided with the
request from the webmaster to the service provider to upgrade the service. This
resulted that mail could not be received or sent; it was then perceived by the users
that Groupwise was the culprit, where in fact it was the error of the service provider.
We moved to a new service provider, have completed the Groupwise (E-mail) project
and are happy to say that the E-mail situation has been resolved. All users can
receive and send mail again.

Challenges on the way forward can summarised as:
      Training of IT. Personnel,
      Appointment of skilled staff in vacant positions,
      Establishment of an IT steering committee which consists of representatives
      all departments – this will ensure that all the I.T. Needs of departments will
      be passed on to IT and to monitor progress in I.T. related matters as there is
      currently no other forum were IT is represented in Emfuleni ,
      Ensure good governance and institutional building by:
           o Creation of a stable I.T. governance platform, implementing and
              defining I.T. usage policies, procedures and standards,
           o Providing a secure I.T. environment by enhancing data security,
              developing and implementing DRP and contingency plans, and
              legalising software.

2.17 MUNICIPAL INFRASTRUCTURE GRANT (MIG)

The Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) is a new municipal infrastructure funding
arrangement. It combines all the existing capital grants for municipal infrastructure
into a single consolidated grant. The vision for the MIG programme is to provide all
South Africans with at least a basic level of service by the year 2013 through the
provision of grant finance aimed at covering the capital cost of basic infrastructure for
the poor. Infrastructure grants were managed by different departments in the past.
They were uncoordinated and fragmented. Municipalities were often not in control of
infrastructure projects within their area of jurisdiction. This defeated the purpose of
cost effective planning and integrated service delivery. MIG is designed to overcome
these challenges. Since MIG is aimed at assisting the poor to gain access to
infrastructure, MIG funds can only be used for infrastructure for basic levels of
services. MIG funds may be used to build new infrastructure and to rehabilitate
existing infrastructure, so long as the infrastructure is for basic services for the poor.




                                                                                      100

 2.17.1 MIG Conditions

 According to the MIG conditions the allocation of funds to departments are done
 according to vertical division and are as follows:

(Millions)                                     % Split
B component                                    75%
Water and Sanitation                           72%
Electricity                                    0%
Roads                                          23%

and micro-enterprises
            Infrastructure

N component Allocation to all nodal 5%
municipalities and Negative or positive
allocations related to past performance of each
municipality relative to grant conditions


 Allocation of MIG
 The amounts allocated to MIG are as follows:
2005/06                   2006/07                        2007/08

 All challenges that were spelled out have been rectified. Planning on projects is in
 advance and business plans has been send to DPLG till 2010 to be registered.

 2.18 SPATIAL DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORK

 2.18.1 Land Use Management

 As Emfuleni is comprised of many former administration areas, each is governed by
 its own town planning scheme or land use regulations. In this regard the situation
 can be summarised as follows:

 Town Planning Schemes      Bophelong, Vereeniging, Vanderbijlpark and Malelane
 Black Communities Development Act, Other African townships
 Peri Urban Areas Town Planning Scheme, Former rural areas

 Therefore it will be to the advantage of the municipality, developers and
 administrators, to rationalise the different schemes into one single scheme. In this
 regard the Gauteng Planning and Development Act will be an important tool.

 The Emfuleni Spatial Development Framework Plan is revised and approved by
 Council and is currently with Province for consideration.

 Five (5) Land Use Inspectors were appointed at the Land Use Management Section.
 Only one of the inspectors does not have a valid driver’s license. The Section



                                                                                 101
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

obtained 4 new vehicles for inspection purposes, which will have a positive effect on
the controlling of transgressions in the area.

The Vaal University of Technology (VUT) is still expanding and has actually less
hostels because the Iscor hostels in which students have stayed previously have
been sold to the Northwest University. The illegal student houses have increased
severely and it is now in Bedworth Park, SE7, SE6, and CE5. The Student Housing
Workgroup is working on a planned process to issue notices, do inspections and
lastly take the transgressors to court. At present there are 15 cases that are in the
process of court hearings, four cases have been documented for court summonses
and 17 statements are in the process of preparation for submission to the court.
According to our records there are 181 illegal student houses in Emfuleni area.

2.18.2 Development Areas

The Emfuleni Local Municipality has a high development potential that should be
actively promoted.

The R59 Corridor (between Vereeniging and Meyerton)
Development for this area is suggested but not ideal because the land is privately
owned and dolomite patches are present on the Vereeniging/Meyerton axis.

The area would be better utilized for agricultural purposes with only that land
immediately adjacent to the R59 being earmarked for industrial purposes.
The area is favourably linked to the rail road running to Johannesburg and the R59 to
Alberton.

The Tshepiso/Sharpeville and Unitas Park Corridor (link between Sebokeng and
Vereeniging).
There is an existing rail infrastructure. The vacant land has been earmarked for
residential development.
In order to strengthen the land between Sebokeng and Vereeniging and to utilize the
existing rail infrastructure and vacant land, residential development in the southern
part of the region should be promoted.
The R82 Corridor (runs in a northern direction towards Midvaal Municipality and
Johannesburg)
This area between Rust-ter-Vaal and Waldrift has been suggested for residential
development, but the vacant land is mostly privately owned.
Housing developments have already commenced in the vicinity of Rus-ter-Vaal.
Because the R82 offers limited opportunities for public transport, it is important that
residential development be medium or low-density housing.

The R42 Corridor (link between Vanderbijlpark and Vereeniging).
The Vereeniging/Barrage Road is a development corridor where mixed uses,
including light industrial uses, can be considered. The area enjoys a very convenient
access advantage, specially the portions of land south and southeast of Sharpeville,
because it is adjacent to major transport routes namely the R59 and R42.

The area west of Vanderbijlpark

The Emfuleni comprise large rural residential areas towards the west, which at
present, displays a mixed land use pattern. Temptation for westward sprawl should
be contained by allocating this land to intensive farming purposes.

Vaal River frontage

The Vaal River, which forms the southern boundary of Gauteng Province, has a high
conservation value but is unique for the opportunities it provides for tourism,
recreational activities like water sports and up market residential development.
Council has approved the Lochvaal Spatial Development Framework plan and
specific development guidelines are established. The development guidelines are
linked to the Environmental Management Plan of Gauteng Department of Agriculture,
Conservation and Environment. Most of the land is privately owned which makes
development difficult, but tourism and residential developments are suggested for the
area.

The library in Boipatong is close to a community hall. The hall has activities that are
not conducive to the functions of the library. These activities are an obstacle to a
peace full environment that enables people to study well.

Emfuleni Community Libraries are currently performing the following functions:

Provincial sport, recreation, amenities and cultural matters are all included in
Schedule 5, Part A of the Constitution, implying that they are an Exclusive Provincial
Legislative Competence. In this regard, the Gauteng Provincial Government has
been mainly responsible for capital development and provision of equipment.
Municipalities have been responsible for both operational- and maintenance costs.

      The library in Boipatong is close to a community hall. The hall has activities that are
      not conducive to the functions of the library. These activities are an obstacle to a
      peace full environment that enables people to study well.

      Emfuleni Community Libraries are currently performing the following functions:

      2.19.3 Environmental Management

      Management of the environment is critical to ensuring the conservation and
      preservation of natural resources. Management of the environment can take many
      different forms and can include multi-lateral environmental agreements, government
      capacity to fulfill their responsibilities, budgetary allocations to environmental
      management and environmental assessments.

      Environmental management is what we do to oversee or govern the environment.
      Our environment includes the biophysical environment, and our economy, society
      and political system. Our Constitution gives the people of South Africa the right to live
      in an environment that is not harmful to their health or well-being. Governance is the
      way in which we manage our environment. Governance requires many sectors of
      society to participate, including government departments, the private sector,
      nongovernmental organisations and community-based organisations. Good
      environmental management and governance are key factors in ensuring sustainable
      development.

      This function has been transferred to the Department of Health And Social
      Development. There is no Integrated Environmental Management Plan for the
      function and therefore the work is not coordinated in the Council. It is therefore
      necessary to appoint consultants to compile an Integrated Environmental
      Development Strategy for the Council.

      The function is not staffed and no resources are currently available. Provision has
      been made on the proposed organogram to accommodate the function. Currently all
      the staff members of the of Environmental Health participates in the Environmental
      Impact Assessments (EIA’s) that is currently undertaken in the area of jurisdiction of
      the Emfuleni Local Municipality.

      Provision will be made in the 2007/08 operational budget to appoint staff and to
      appoint consultants to compile the Integrated Environmental Impact Assessment.

EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
Many people in Emfuleni are faced with environmental health risk due to pollution
from both industrial and domestic activities. The household energy sources that are
lower in energy ladder, has a high pollution potential and environmental impact. The
atmospheric conditions in Emfuleni are not conducive to effective dispersion and
dilution. The high risk faced by Emfuleni and the rest of the country is due to
ineffectiveness of the Atmospheric Pollution Prevention Act of 1965. The White
Paper on Integrated Pollution and Waste Management for South Africa was
developed and adopted as a blue print for efficient and coordinated management of
pollution. This bill when proclaimed will repeal the Atmospheric Pollution Prevention
Act of 1965. The bill provides penalties for none compliance from industries and
residents would be educated on detrimental activities to the environment and air
quality. In addition, the Gauteng Department of Agriculture, Conservation and
Environment donated one air quality monitoring station which would be erected in
Vanderbijlpark to determine the ambient air quality within the municipality and
province.

2.19.4 Environmental Health

Function in relating to the National Health Act (61 of 2003)

Although Health and Social Development Services have been preformed by Local
Municipalities in the past, the National Health Act includes a new definition of health
services and confirms the responsible authorities for these functions. Municipal
Health Services are defined as all functions falling under environmental health
services (excluding port health, malaria and control of hazardous substances and
these have been allocated to Category C. Municipality, which is Sedibeng District
Municipality. Emfuleni is performing this function on an agency basis with effect from
the 1st July 2005.

Definition of MHS

The National Health Act (61 of 2003) defines Municipal Health Services as follows:

Water quality monitoring
Food Control
Waste Management
Health Surveillance of Premises
Communicable disease
Pest Control
Pollution Control
Disposal of the dead
Chemical safety

The following services are rendered Emfuleni:

Pollution Control (Air, Water and Surface), Food Hygiene, Pest Control, Public
Nuisance, Water and Sanitation complaints, Noise Pollution, Communicable Disease
Control, Environmental Health Education, Disposal of the Dead, Business Licensing,
Law Enforcement, comments and requirements on Building Plans, Health
Surveillance of Premises, Tobacco Smoke Control, Comments Land Use, and
Chemical Safety.

2.19.4.1 Air pollution

Regulation and control of air pollution up to now in South Africa has been very
problematic for a number of reasons. The legal responsibility for air quality


                                                                                   115
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
management has fallen across all three spheres of government. The above coupled
with outdated legislation; lack of clear national directive etc. has led to fragmentation
of services delivery, duplication and ultimately ineffective service delivery.

These and other issues has led to a situation where air quality management has
been neglected to some degree and the situation in terms of pollution levels have
deteriorated, specifically in the Vaal Triangle.

The high levels of air pollution in the area is the result of the area being highly
industrialised and the fact that the majority of the population having to make use of
the burning of fossil fuels for space heating and food preparation. Adverse
meteorological conditions prevailing in the winter months are also a major
contributing factor. Emfuleni local Municipality forms part of the declared priority area
by the Minister.

The new Air Quality Management Act, Act 39 of 2004 promulgated in September
2005 will result in a “turn around” for air quality management in South Africa. Local
government in collaboration with the relevant national and provincial departments will
become a big role player in the implementation and enforcement of the Act.

The National Environmental Management: Air Quality Act, which will replace the
APPA, will mark a shift from air pollution control based exclusively on source-based
measures to air quality management based on a receiving environment approach.
The potential for cumulative air pollutant concentrations occurring given other
sources of emission will therefore be taken into account in the setting of emission
limits for an individual operation. The new Act also marked the decentralization of air
quality management functions with the licensing of industrial operations shifting from
being a national government function to being a local government responsibility.
District Municipalities and Metropolitan Municipalities specifically are allocated
responsibilities for the licensing of so-called “listed activities”.

The Air Quality Act also stipulates the need for local municipalities to develop,
implement, review and revise Air Quality Management Plans as part of their
Integrated Development Plans. It is likely that, given the context of governmental air
quality management planning, that industries already actively implementing emission
reductions will be encouraged to consolidate such measures within comprehensive
plans - including details of timeframes for implementation, performance indicators,
progress monitoring methods.

Due to concerns of the poor air quality in the Vaal Triangle Airshed is was deemed
necessary to declare the Vaal Triangle Airshed a ‘Priority Area’ in terms of section
18(1) of the Act. In order to monitor the current air quality and assess any changes it
is important to have current and accurate data. By implementing a network of
ambient air quality monitoring stations it will be possible to achieve a system whereby
regulatory authorities can use data for informed decision-making and to implement
the requirements of the new Air Quality Act.

The Gauteng Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Environment have
embarked on a process with local government to determine what the ambient air
quality is for Gauteng. Two top of the range monitoring stations have been provided
to Sedibeng District Council f or that purpose. These stations have been installed in
Meyerton and Vanderbijlpark. Emfuleni officials are responsible for the operational
side, whilst the Sedibeng District is responsible for the management and
maintenance of these stations.




                                                                                     116
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
The project has been successfully completed. Air Pollution level data is generated
live and can be accessed at any time. The objective is to draw standards for all
criteria pollutants in Gauteng.

The overall objective of the project is described as follows:
Air quality management initiatives within the Vaal airshed are efficiently and
effectively identified, prioritised, developed, informed and monitored through, in part,
the availability of an effective air quality monitoring network in the area.

The National Department of Environment and Tourism have also embarked on a
process with local government and Gauteng Department, Conservation and
Environment to determine what the air quality is for Gauteng. Three monitoring
stations have been provided to Emfuleni Local Municipality for that purpose.

For the successful control of air pollution a number of essential requirements must be
met. The first requirement is to make essential resources, manpower, available.
Training of officials to implement the Act is also a priority.

The second requirement is a clear picture of the locality, nature and magnitude of the
sources of air pollution and t heir relative significance.

The third requirement is an understanding of the particular conditions in the area of
Emfuleni, which may influence the implementation of the Act.

2.19.4.2 Land Pollution

The most serious and visible environment degradation comes from illegal dumping of
domestic, industrial, commercial and garden waste. The lack approved facilities for
the disposal of hazardous waste in Emfuleni is a concern. The indiscriminate
dumping of all sorts of material and substances throughout the area confirms the
issue.

2.19.4.3 Noise pollution

Complaints pertaining to noise nuisance are the increase. Sources are open music
festival, parties, machinery, industrial sector, vehicles, places of entertainment,
animals, etc. Council should adopt policy that will control the conduct of open-air
music festival, given the mushrooming of open-air music festival within Emfuleni local
Municipality area of jurisdiction. Practical experience has shown that it is wiser and
prudent to be more proactive than reactive since a mess is easier to create than to
clear. Measuring equipment, for example, sound level meter, is old and outdated and
could not be calibrated and therefore no reliable readings could be taken for use in
legal actions taken.

Pollution (Land, Air and Noise)

Climate Change Contribution

Given the extent of agricultural activities and the growth of human settlements in
close proximity to rivers it is evident that these changes could significantly impact on
people and the economy.

Agriculture and Biomass Burning

Atmosphere Emissions from Agricultural Activities and Biomass Burning

Fugitive dust emissions from topsoil and overburden stripping, materials handling
(e.g. dragline activity, truck loading and off-loading, conveyor transfer points)
associated with various agricultural activities including land clearing and tilling
activities. Other pollutants released and their associated sources include:

   •   Ammonia, nitrous oxide and other oxides of nitrogen, and volatile organic
       compounds from agricultural soils to which nitrogen-contain, fertilizers are
       applied;
   •   Emissions from growing and decomposing fertilizers are applied;
   •   Emissions from the application of animal manures;
   •   Emissions due to the use of pesticides, including insecticides, which could
       include persistent organic pollutants (POPs); and
   •   Anaerobic degradation of livestock feed and animal excreta.

The extent of the area currently under commercial cultivation, which would provide
some indication of the magnitude of associated emissions (ammonia, nitrous oxide),
is not known.

Veld burning may represent a component of agricultural activities associated with
land clearing, or it may be caused accidentally by lighting or self-combustion.

Annual and Seasonal Average Daily Rainfall (mm)

Global warming is expected to result in an increase in average annual temperatures
and in increases in the frequencies of droughts and floods on a global scale. Given
the extent of agricultural activities with the Sedibeng District Municipality and the
growth of human settlements in close proximity to rivers it is evident that such
changes could have a significant impact on people and the economy.

A long-term annual average rainfall of 658mm was recorded at the South African
Weather Service’s Vereeniging station (Schulze, 1986). Sedibeng experiences
summer rainfall, with over 80% of the annual rainfall, occurring during October to
March in the form of sudden downpours and thunderstorms. Summer months
experience on average 10 to 14 rain days a month, in comparison to the winter
months when there are only 1 to 2 rainy days. The annual average number of rain
days is given as 88 based on the long-term record (1951 – 1984).




                                                                                    118

Average Minimum and Maximum Temperatures

Long-term temperature data are available from the South African Weather Service’s
Vereeniging station. Annual maximum, minimum and mean temperatures are given
        C,     C           C,
as 23.9° 9.1° and 16.6° respectively, based on the long-term record (Schulze,
                                                                   C
1986). Average daily maximum temperatures range from 27.8° in January to
     C                                             C                           C
17.7° in July, with daily minima ranging form 15.5 ° in January to just above 0° in
June and July. Sunshine duration in summer is about 60% of daytime hours,
whereas insulation durations of 80% of the possible daytime hours occur during
winter months due to their being less cloud cover. During 2003 the minimum and
                                                                 C
maximum daily temperatures were recorded to be 9.6°C and 25.5° respectively.

2.19.4.4 Contribution to National Greenhouse Gas Emissions (0%)

Based on the quantifiable greenhouse gas emissions Sedibeng is predicted to be
responsible for ~3% of the total carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, ~0.4% of the total
nitrous oxide (N20) emissions and ~4% of the total methane (CH4) emissions. The
carbon dioxide equivalent emissions from Sedibeng comprise ~3% of the total
national CO2 equivalent emissions given as 379 842 Gg CO2 equivalent for 1994.
Given that South Africa contributions in the order of 1.2% to the global warming
effect, Sedibeng could be inferred as contributing 0.04% to this effect.

2.19.4.5 Energy

Emissions from powers stations

Measures currently being implemented to reduce emissions from coal-fired power
stations include:
The demand side management programmes and renewable energy policy of the
DME, and the demand side management programmes and improvement of pollution
control technologies at operating power stations by Eskom’s,
Policy targets
Reducing household fuel burning, including the use of wood, coal and paraffin;
Reducing the demand for electricity;
Reducing emissions from electricity generation from existing coal-fired power
stations;
Increased use of renewable energy.



                                                                                119
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________

Impact of electricity on atmosphere

Based on the total electricity consumption rate and the environmental implications of
electricity usage an estimate resource consumption and contribution to remote
atmospheric emissions may be ascertained. Considerable need exists for reducing
the extent of per capita electricity use.

Impact of paraffin on human health

Paraffin has been used as an energy source within previously disadvantaged areas
for many years and is recognized as a contributing factor to air pollution. The use of
paraffin has further consequences in that it also poses a health risk to those
households that utilize it for cooking, heating or lighting in terms of fires, burns and
accidental poisoning. Accidental ingestion of paraffin by infants due to this fuel
frequently being stored in empty beverage containers is a cause for concern.
Paraffin burning households also face relatively high risks of injury, death and loss of
property through accidental fires.

2.19.4.6 Human Health

Encompassing a mixture of industrial, mining, commercial, agricultural and residential
land use activities in close proximity to one another, the Vaal Triangle faces complex
and pressing air pollution challenges. Ample evidence exists that elevated air
pollution concentrations pose serious threats to the health and well-being of
numerous residents. Although above-average air pollution levels occur over much of
the district, the highest air pollution concentrations occur within household fuel
burning areas and within various heavy industrial areas and adjacent residential
suburbs.

2.19.4.7 Water pollution

Effluent spillages from the Emfuleni Local Municipality (LM) into the Vaal River have
been a problem for a number of years now and service delivery in the LM is poor.
Many complaints have been received regarding sewage spills and there has been a
lot of bad press. Worse, still, there is reportedly people downstream taking water
directly from the river.
Numerous efforts by DWAF to resolve the situation did not succeed because
Emfuleni’s infrastructure was so run down that it could only be resolved by means of
a total refurbishment programme and because Emfuleni did not have the managerial
capacity to maintain equipment or to sustain such an initiative.

Much of the infrastructure is 50 years old and in very poor condition. In the
Sebokeng/Evaton area about 75% of the water supplied is lost or wasted. The
dilemma is to decide what should be addressed first. The priority must be people’s
health and well-being, so the discharge of non-complying effluent to the
environment must cease. If we can do this it will fortunately also deal with the
public complaints and bad press.
There are sources of pollution, namely when failures occur at the pumping stations
and at the waste water treatment works (WWTW). Of the two, the pumping stations
will discharge raw effluent, and the WWTW partially treated effluent. Thus the
pumping stations are our first priority. Because of the size and cost of the problem a
phased approach will be required. The Treasury grant should suffice for phase 1
given below and will resolve the immediate problems.




                                                                                    120
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

2.19.4.8 Ground water pollution

Ground water pollution emanating from the Mittal Steel Vanderbijlpark plant
evaporation ponds is a very serious environmental concern in Emfuleni and regularly
receives negative publicity in the national press and media.

2.19.4.9 Aquatic habitat integrity

The river health in Emfuleni, based on the aquatic habitat integrity of the major rivers
in Emfuleni, varies from poor to good. The upper reaches of the Blesbokspruit and
the Rietspruit at Vanderbijlpark indicate poor river health conditions.

Past and present land-use and human activities, including agriculture, mining,
urbanisation and industrialisation, as well as water abstraction and storage, have had
a major influence on the aquatic habitat integrity. The largest impacts on in-stream
habitats in most of the streams and rivers are, however, flow alteration, erosion and
associated sedimentation.

2.19.4.10 Fish Community Health

A total of 14 fish species occur in the area. One of the species, the Rock Catfish
(Austroglanis sclateri), has Red Data status. The number of this species are declining
as a result of habitat degradation, resulting from impoundments, water abstraction,
pollution, alluvial mining activities and erosion related sedimentation (Skelton, 1993).
 It is clear that past and present land-use and human activities, including agriculture,
mining, urbanisation and industrialisation, as well as water abstraction and storage,
have had a major influence on the fish assemblage. The site with the highest rating is
situated in a catchment characterised by agricultural and conservation activities,
while the sites with the lowest ratings are all characterised by catchments with high
levels of urbanisation and industrialisation. The river health class scenario is the
same scenario that influences the fish community.


                                                                                     121

2.19.4.11 Macro-invertebrate composition

Aquatic macro-invertebrates (bugs, beetles, worms, crabs, etc.) are used as
indicators of river health with the use of the South African Scoring System (SASS).

Past and present land-use and human activities, including agriculture, mining,
urbanisation and industrialisation, as well as water abstraction and storage, have had
a major influence on the aquatic macro-invertebrate assemblage. The river health
class scenario is the same scenario that influences the macro-invertebrates.

2.19.4.12 Riparian vegetation index

The extent of a riparian zone in a river is a function of the depth of the water table
and the river topography. The riparian zone plays an integral role in river
ecosystems. The river health class scenario is the same scenario that influences the
riparian vegetation index.

2.19.4.13 Waste disposal

Illegal waste dumping occurs throughout the area.
Natural Environment Issues
Issues of environmental planning, integrated waste management and pollution
abatement must be addressed as essential ingredients of Emfuleni’s sustainable
development as there are direct correlations between these issues and the economic
growth of Emfuleni.
For the successful control of air pollution a number of essential requirements must be
met. The first requirement is to make essential resources, manpower, available.
Training of officials to implement the Act is also a priority.
The second requirement is a clear picture of the locality, nature and magnitude of the
sources of air pollution and t heir relative significance.
The third requirement is an understanding of the particular conditions in the area of
Emfuleni, which may influence the implementation of the Act.
Management of landfill sites & transfer stations under capacity

The Public Safety and Community Development cluster within Emfuleni is made up
of:
Health services (including Primary Health Care & Environmental Health)
Environmental Services
Social Development Services
Sports and Recreation, Art and Culture (include Libraries);
Traffic, Security and Emergency services


                                                                                  122

Primary Health Care and Social Development Functions

Functions in relation to the Health Act.

Although health and welfare functions have been devolved to the Local Municipalities
in the past, the Health Act includes a new definition of municipal health that
encompasses environmental health (excluding port health, malaria and control of
hazardous substances). Primary Health Care therefore remains a Provincial function,
rendered by the local municipalities. A Service Level Agreement is currently being
negotiated with the Province to render the Primary Health Care services on an
agency basis. The third draft is currently under discussion. A detailed report will be
forwarded to Council once there is finality regarding the contents of the Service Level
Agreement.

The National Health Act was signed by the President. As a result the Environmental
Health Services became a function of Category A (Metropolitan) and C (District)
municipalities. Category C governments may delegate the function to Category B
local governments according to capacity. The Sedibeng District Municipality
delegated the function to the Emfuleni Local Municipality by means of an approved
Service Level Agreement.

There are significant implications arising from the changes outlined above:
The Sedibeng District Municipality is funding the Environmental Health Services
(Municipal Health Services) 100% according to the Service Level Agreement.
Primary Health Care Services must continue providing all current services according
to the District Health Services Plan.
During this transition period a service level agreement needs to be established with
the Provincial Health Department for the continued provision of current primary
health care services.
The Gauteng Province will, by April 2008, delegate functions primary health care
services along with funding to municipalities.
Regarding Emfuleni, a service level agreement will be negotiated with the Province to
render the primary health care function and Province will continue to provide the
subsidy to Emfuleni to render this service.

The Gauteng Province will, by April 2007, take administrative control of Primary
Health Care services within District Municipalities.

Emfuleni will then enter into a service level agreement for the rendering of the
function until the process of the transfer of the function is finalised.

The problems regarding the payment of the subsidy have been attended to and the
subsidy is paid within 3 working days after.

The current norm for the National Department of Health is 1 Nurse for every 10 000
of the population. This relates to a staff component of at least 658 nursing
professionals. At this stage it is an impossible target to reach and the aim of the
department is to have a daily nurse to patient ratio of 1:25.

To relieve the pressure on the staff at least 15 nurses must be appointed in the
critical vacancies that arose as a result of staff attrition.

The department is actively involved in the running of health programs. Coordinators
must be appointed to sustain the programs. The only appointed Coordinator is for the
TB program. Coordinators must be appointed for HIV & Aids, Health Information


                                                                                   123

Systems, Communicable and Non-Communicable Diseases and for Training &
Development.

The clinics are not sufficiently equipped to perform their duties according to the
protocols developed for primary health care. More and more efficient equipment must
be procured for the execution of duties.

Provision will be made on the 2006/07 operational and capital budgets to eliminate
the challenges mentioned.

Current Primary Health Care Functions
The current primary health care functions rendered by Emfuleni include:

Management of minor ailments and chronic diseases,
Immunisation, growth monitoring, infant feeding,
Control of communicable or opportunistic infections (TB and STI's),
Staging for ARV treatment,
Reproductive health – family planning, cancer screening,
Antenatal and postnatal services,
Counselling,
Training of nurses, and the public,
Integrated Management of childhood illnesses (IMCI)
Preventing of mother to child transmission of HIV (PMTCT),
Voluntary counselling and testing for HIV (VCT),
Health Awareness campaigns & Health education, and
Antenatal and postnatal services.

Hospitals and Primary Health Care Facilities

Hospitals

The district municipality and the Provincial Department of Health are jointly
responsible for the provision of public health care. Province is responsible for all
public hospitals, while the Provincial Health Department and the Local Municipality
share the responsibility for clinics and community health centres. There are two
public hospitals in the Emfuleni Municipality area:

Kopanong Hospital, Vereeniging
Sebokeng Hospital, Sebokeng

The Sebokeng Hospital is a Level 2 Hospital and therefore does not attend to the
primary day to day care of patients. Kopanong hospital provides primary care to day
patients.

In addition there are 6 private hospitals located in Emfuleni:

Clinix, Sebokeng
Medi Vaal, Vanderbijlpark.
Mid Vaal, Vereeniging.
Medi Clinic, Vereeniging.
Cormed, Vanderbijlpark
Occumed, Vanderbijlpark (specialising in eye surgery).
Clinix

The Emfuleni Local Municipality, which is predominantly urban in nature, has a total
number of 28 clinics, 19 fixed and 1 mobile are run by the municipal; while 6 fixed


                                                                                124
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________
and 2 mobile clinics are run by the Province. 90% of the clinics are capable of
providing a comprehensive Primary Health Care services. Five of the clinics are
structurally inadequate to render comprehensive health services. The process is
underway to upgrade these clinics to meet community needs. Critical maintenance
work at all the clinics has been done. In the 2005/2006 budget all the clinics will be
maintained properly. An amount of R 1 200 000 has been granted by the council to
maintain all the clinics to an acceptable standard. The clinics in Zones 3 and 13 have
been upgraded with funds provided by the Sedibeng District Municipality. The Market
Avenue Clinic is currently been upgraded with money from the Sedibeng District
Municipality.

In Emfuleni all clinics are open 5 days a week. At two provincial clinics, services are
rendered with extended hours. All Maternity and Obstetric Units render a 24 hours,
seven days a week service. There is a critical shortage of staff trained to render
Primary Health Care. The shortage of staff is a result of high turnover of professional
nurses and exacerbated by failure of council to fill vacancies as they occur.

From the 1st of July 2004, after extensive consultation with the community, the clinics
in Roshnee and Tokisong were closed. Council resolved to close the clinics after the
process of consultation was completed. This was the result of an over supply of
clinics in the area surrounding the Tokisong Clinic and the very low patient load at
the Roshnee clinic.

The supply of drugs improved and currently the shortages are less than 2%, which is
within the norm of the Department of Health. All the problems encountered are
followed up immediately and are solved in a short space of time.

The Patients Charter is exhibited in all the clinics. The training of the members of
Ward Health Sub-Committees includes training on the patients Charter.

In terms of clinics there is a need for 4 additional mobile clinics and one each
additional fixed structure in Bophelong Extension, Evaton West, Zone 14 and the
Western Smallholding (Noordvaal).

The Emfuleni Local Municipality reported a slower increase in HIV/AIDS prevalence
rate and the number of deaths caused by the pandemic. The number of people dying
from HIV/AIDS related illness had been increasing at a rapid rate. The population
growth had been declining due to the pandemic. The prevalence of the pandemic will
put tremendous pressure on economic growth in the near future.

HIV and AIDS

HIV and AIDS have been identified by both the National and Provincial Governments
as a high priority area. Prevalence of the virus and AIDS has serious implications for
all parts of the country. 2
There was a steep increase in HIV sero-prevalence in Gauteng from 15% in 1996 to
29.4% in 2000. This was above the national average of 24.5%. All five health districts
in Gauteng have shown dramatic increase between 1996 and 2000.
HIV sero-prevalence in the Vaal region increased from 23% in 1999 to 29% in 2000.
It is still on the same level. Life expectancy in Gauteng was 66 years in 1997. By
2010, the impact of HIV and AIDS is expected to reduce this to only 40 years.

Progress with HIV and AIDS programmes in Emfuleni

The Emfuleni Health Department has gained approval for a Work Place Forum for
HIV and AIDS and it now requires implementation through the Human Resources
Department.
Workplace peer educators have been trained to assist employees who contract the
HIV virus. They will then be admitted into special programs depending on their status
and mental condition. A Counsellor has been appointed at Human Resources to
attend to employees who find it difficult to process the reality of living with the virus.

Emfuleni also has an HIV and AIDS Strategy which was prepared with wide
consultation. The implementation of this will require co-ordination between all the
stakeholders in the different sectors. An Inter Sectoral HIV and AIDS Forum was
established and the first joint venture was the presentation of the “Silver Ring Thing”
Aids prevention campaign. About 10000 school children were reached with the
campaign.

The implementation of HIV and AIDS Strategy and programme will be the focus of
the municipality in order to deal with the impact and effects that HIV and AIDS have
in the municipal area. A special HIV and AIDS unit will be established after the
finalisation of the structure of the Municipality’s Organogram and resourced
accordingly. Co-ordination with all other stakeholders working in the field of HIV and
AIDS will be affected with the view to improve and increase the intervention results.
Currently treatment is provided in all municipal clinics for opportunistic infections (TB
and Sexually Transmitted Infections – STI's) as a result of the prevalence of HIV and
AIDS. Anti-retroviral treatment is given to all willing pregnant women to prevent
mother-to-child transmission. (PMTCT).
Regarding the new Provincial anti-retroviral roll-out program, the two provincial
hospitals in Emfuleni (Kopanong and Sebokeng) are included in the second phase of
the Programme (Johannesburg hospitals being the first phase). The clinics will only
be involved in the staging of patients to check their CD4 cell count, screen and treat
for opportunistic infections. The patients with the CD4 cell count of below 200 will
then be referred to ARV treatment sites within the District.

The clinics in Emfuleni will only be reached in the last phase of the roll-out. This is
mainly due to the lack of attending doctors and/or pharmacists at these clinics.
All of the 19 clinics in Emfuleni provide basic HIV and AIDS counselling and testing
(VCT).
The primary role of the department (as opposed to clinics) is in training. Training is
provided to nurses on a regular basis as well as to community workers and
volunteers. The trainer is also responsible for monitoring provincial subsidies to non-

governmental organisations in the area and submits reports to the Gauteng
Department of Health.

The municipality has an obligation to play a meaningful and leading role in the
implementation of HIV and AIDS programs in line with its developmental role and in
particular social development objective.

2.20.2 Social Development

Local government’s role in social development is clearly captured in the Local
Government White paper and the Constitution. However, lack of funding for poverty
alleviation has rendered the cluster ineffective and there is no visible impact in this
regard.

With the approval of the new organogram, provision was made for the section of
Social Development. The section will concentrate on the following:
Social Services
Poverty Alleviation
NGO Support
Sufficient funding to fill the vacancies with suitably qualified staff, will determine the
success achieved.

Currently the following services are rendered on a limited scale by this department:
Referral of social problems to the relevant NGO’s and the provincial department of
Social Services.
Establishment of food gardens
Assisting the community to obtain Identity Documents
Involvement in organising events like the National Child Day Celebrations in the
Sedibeng region.
Field work to uplift the living conditions of specific cases referred to the division.
Poverty alleviation
Shelters for street children
Counselling
Evaluation of NGO’s for funding by state and/ or provincial government
Administration of above

2.20.2.1 Vehicles

Due to the financial constraints, no maintenance or replacement of any vehicles were
done, with the result of a dilapidated environmental health vehicle fleet. Mostly all the
vehicles are gas driven. The availability of LP gas is limited and sometimes
unavailable. To render a comprehensive sustainable Environmental Health Services
in Emfuleni, the Environmental Health Section depends on vehicles to achieve this
goal.

2.20.2.2 Communication system

Only two telephone lines and six extensions are available at the Houtkop Offices.
Sixteen Environmental Health staff members must use one of the extension lines.
This leads to frustration of staff and community members. When the Environmental
Health Practitioners are busy with their operational duties, there is no communication
with management and the public. This leads to poor response time to complaints,
business licensing, health certificate applications and general queries.         This
constraint hampers efficient and effective service delivery.




                                                                                      127

There is no electronic link to the main frame and network of the Emfuleni Local
Municipality. This causes the flow of documentation and information to be slow and
erratic. Computers and software are outdated (Pentium 1 + 2, Windows 95 / 98).
This result in prolonged time to produce documentation because of the old and
outdated computers and software. There is no electronic link that staff members
must use unreliable floppy disks.

2.20.2.3 Education

There is a problem in Emfuleni, where at least 27% of schooling population is not
attending school or other educational facilities. This had been referred to
disorientation of children to early childhood development which is a prerequisite for
children’s growth and development which produce successful schooling career. The
table below shows that 76.88% of Emfuleni’s population is between grade 1 and 12,
or NTCI, NTCII or NTCIII. Approximately 6 percent of the population has grade 12
certificate or different levels of tertiary qualifications. At least 9% of the population
has no form of education; meanwhile approximately 8% could not be classified with
regard to education levels.

Only 7% of Emfuleni’s total population has tertiary qualification, while 24% has
completed grade 12 or standard 10. 38% are dropouts from high school while 9%
have no schooling at all. People who have never passed grade 6 or standard 4 are
being considered as illiterate. Table 4 below shows distribution of education within
Emfuleni’s population. On the other hand, table 5 shows that 62% of Emfuleni’s
population had been to school with only 3% acquiring tertiary qualification.

 2.20.2.4 Educational infrastructure

 Educational facilities had failed to motivate and encourage pupils to look forward
 towards studying. An estimation of one-third schools buildings are in poor conditions
 and have poor accessibility with regard to road infrastructure. There are normally
 more children and few teachers which becomes a serious problem. Libraries within
 the municipality are said to be insufficient. Lastly, insufficient water and sanitation is
 also an issue facing some of our schools. On a positive note, education level within
 the municipality had been improving dramatically even though the level and type of
 skill required by the economy indicate the need for improvement.

 Social Security Grants

 In respond to the plague of poverty, individual grants are being paid out to the
 following points

Resources
Vehicles:

Region 1 – Vereeniging

There are two fire fighting vehicles which this region mainly rely on. First is an E-
ONE fire tender of the year 1992. This vehicle is mostly used as a first responder to
incidents of vehicle accidents and fires, rescues, structural fires, spillages, etc.
 Secondly is the Mercedes truck of the year 1987. It is mostly used for incidents
outlined on the E-ONE fire tender above.
 A refurbished water carrying tanker Samil 2000 of ± 9000 litres capacity is used in
incidents where water reticulation systems are not available.


                                                                                  130
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________

Three new grass fire vehicles, three Fire Safety vehicles, one pilot vehicle and one
transport vehicle were delivered, but all other vehicles, for an example unimog, utility
vehicles are worn and regular mechanical problems occur.

Region 2 – Vanderbijlpark

There is only one reliable vehicle or fire fighting tender which attend both rescues
and fires in this area. It is a vehicle which was sponsored by Gauteng Province in
1997. It is a Freight liner medium rescue pumper.
Also E–One fire fighting 1991 model used as a backup and second responder to
incidents as stated.

Region 3 - Sebokeng/Evaton

A new Fire engine was purchased September 2005 Mercedes truck
This vehicle is mostly used as a first responder to incidents of vehicle accidents and
fires, rescues, structural fires and spillages
Also E–One fire fighting 1992 model used as a backup and second responder to
incidents as stated.

The area of Sebokeng/Evaton and surrounding areas are the most congested in the
whole of the former Vaal area, an area called disadvantaged and full of settlements
which when a fire starts, it will spread rapidly.

This region is an indication of scarce resources without a formal Fire Services
premises and indication of incomplete transformation.

Utility Vehicles

The utility vehicles used by this division are LDV’s and sedan vehicles. The models
range from 1982 to 1997. The conditions vary from good to fair.

Specialized Equipment

Specialized equipment, those used on major incidents or extremely hazardous
material incidents. These equipment include:

   1) Hazardous material equipment
   2) Fire fighting equipment
   3) Rescue equipment

The above equipment are definite requirements for the protection of emergency
personnel dealing with the incident, protection and safeguarding of civilians, road
users and to a large extend, protection of further damage to property.

Current Situation
      Fire Brigade and Rescue Services is structured as follows:

       Region 1:      Include areas of Vereeniging, Sharpeville, Roshnee, Rust-ter-
                      vaal and the areas surrounding them.
       Region 2:      Include areas of Vanderbijlpark, Bophelong, Boipatong,
                      Tshepiso, Vaal River and all areas surrounding them.
       Region 3:      Include areas of Sebokeng, Evaton, Palm Springs, Beverley
                      Hills, Boitumelo, Kanana, Eatonside and all other areas
                      surrounding them.


                                                                                    131

       Fire prevention activities
       Building inspections
       Hazardous material controls
       Building inspections and approvals

       The present situation does not sometimes allow meeting some of the
       obligations above.

Personnel

The fire fighting service delivery is not efficient and effective. It is also not compliant
with the standards of NFPA. This is due to staff shortage of 70 personnel presented
in the organogram.

       Organogram provides for a total of 160 personnel

       Current                         Needed                         Shortage

That a total of 70 fire fighters be appointed in the next four financial years.06 to 10

Current fire engines and equipment are old and outdated, they are also not inline with
the new technology and they are very much unreliable, waiting for the new fire
engines to be delivered.

Vehicles to be delivered
       Fire Engines                    =       12
       Utility vehicles                =       7

       Utility vehicles                =       7

Radios
Some of the existing radios are of old technology and incompetent for effective
communication, but the new vehicles are fitted with new radios.

Maintenance
No maintenance program on fire equipment shortens life span of equipment.

Deterioration of buildings
Value decrease, buildings not according to Health and Safety Act (Act 85 of 91)
No maintenance on building for more than 10 years.

Theft at fire stations
No security measures, unsafe working environment.

Poor response times
Topography, fire brigade services travel long distances between Sebokeng fire
station and Evaton, bad and poor road conditions, but a application was made for a
new Fire Station through a MIG Project (+- R 6 500 000.00).

The challenges mentioned above have negative impact on the response to incidents.
Only four fire fighters are available for each incident, at any given time. At least 10
personnel are provided to man two different incidents at any given time.

Challenges
   • Shortage of staff
   • Fire Engines and equipment
   • Shortage of Vehicles and Equipment
   • Radios
   • Maintenance on existing equipment
   • Deterioration of buildings
   • Administration
   • Training Aids

2.20.4 Law Enforcement

The Division Traffic & Security has to execute law enforcement and visible policing
duties within the Emfuleni area. The present duties include the following areas:

    •       Vereeniging
    •       Sharpeville
    •       Vanderbijlpark
    •       Sebokeng
    •       Boipatong
    •       Bophelong
    •       Evaton

The current status in respect of Traffic Officers is 52 in number. Twenty eight Traffic
Wardens have been appointed of which eighteen have been trained. Ten Traffic
Wardens are still being trained. During the 2006/07 – and 2007/08 financial year
these Traffic Wardens, who meet the minimum requirements, will be sent to the
Traffic College to be trained as Traffic Officers.

Law Enforcement

Although the following new vehicles have been allocated to the Traffic Division it will
only simplify the functions executed by the division. These vehicles are however not
sufficient in comparison with the area that needs to be patrolled.

Vehicles received:

5       x      BMW Sedans                    2      x       Toyota Kombi’s
6       x      Audi Sedans                   1      x       Toyota LDV

Roadblocks

The division endeavour to conduct at least 8 roadblocks per month, throughout the
Emfuleni area. It sometimes occurs that due to unforeseen circumstances, such as
whether conditions, two roadblocks per week are not permitted. The roadblocks
have proofed to be successful in improving public awareness. The public responds
well when being stopped, and are aware of this division’s effort to apprehend
offenders with outstanding traffic fines.

During the roadblocks motorists are screened for unpaid traffic fines, outstanding
warrants of arrest, roadworthy vehicles, license and registration details etc. The
roadblocks have proven to be an excellent source of income generation as it
sensitizes the public to pay their unpaid fines.

During the execution of roadblocks a positive increase of payments are visible at all
the pay points with regard to traffic fines. Depending on where the roadblock is
conducted the amount of between R5 000 – R20 000 is collected on the roadblock
itself.

Traffic Fines

The issuing of traffic fines could be seen as a reactive measure pertaining to road
safety. The division issues various traffic fines such as speeding violations by means
of camera prosecutions, parking meter and parking related offences in the CBD’s
and other fines pertaining to moving violations, roadworthiness, etc.

The appointment of Traffic Wardens will increase the total number of notifications
which will have a positive impact on parking related offences and therefore an
increase to income.

Security

Council utilizes the services of contract security to provide guarding and access
control services. The contract security personnel have to be supervised by the
security section on a 24-hour basis. The Security Section experiences a shortage of
personnel (only 10) and lack of transport. A sufficient service to the Council can
therefore not be rendered. The lack of transport causes a serious problem. The
vehicles are currently old and unreliable. This prevents the Security Section to deliver
an effective service. It causes insufficient monitoring of both the contract security
guards as well as the alarm systems.

A new security contractor was appointed to render guarding services. A contractor
for the installation of alarms systems has also been appointed. The security division
has been restructured in order to enhance service delivery.

Process, Administration & Logistics

Five Process Clerks were appointed on a permanent basis and three were appointed
on a temporary basis. Process Clerks are responsible for the capturing and
processing of documents issued by Traffic Officers.           Approximately 35 000
documents are handled per month. The Division is currently utilizing Total Computer
Services as a Back Office Service Centre to assist with the processing and
adjudication of traffic fines. Labat Traffic Solutions provides the necessary speed
measuring cameras to assist the department in speed law enforcement.

PROJECT PHASE

4. Introduction

An estimated number of 400 projects are identified in the current IDP Review to
address development need of the community. There might not be enough funds to
implement all identified projects for all financial years reflected. Nevertheless these
projects depict the most urgent needs to be addressed within the municipality. These
projects could be used as a tool to solicited funding from different sector including the
private sector.

COMMUNICATION STRUCTURE

MUNICIPAL INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

Basically, municipal international relations is about adding value to the integrated development plan. The primary objective for
entering into international relations must be intended to achieve the following:

-      Managerial and technical capacity building
-      Development of project partnerships
-      City or regional promotion as an attractive location for investment and tourism
-      Sharing of information and knowledge

In order to ensure that the twinning agreement is not merely cosmetic in nature, the needs of the community identified during the integrated
development plan process should be satisfied.

Therefore, the reason for twinning agreements or international relations agreements should emanate from needs identified as part of the
integrated development plan process.

In order to ensure proper control, accountability and co-ordination, it will be in the interest of Council to enter into twinning/international
relations directly with other municipalities and not the Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO’s) or Community Based organisations (CBO’s).
Foreign NGO’s or CBO’s that wish to have relations with Council need to be advised to involve their respective municipalities as a primary
party to the agreement.

Upon request from the NGO’s local and foreign that have the relationship, Council can facilitate communication until they are properly
organised as part of social responsibilities from the Council’s side.

The principal channel of communication with foreign countries will be via e-mail in order to save costs unless circumstances dictate otherwise.
International communication need to be channelled through the international municipal relations office for ensuring accountability.

Notwithstanding the ongoing reports that will have served before Council, an annual report on the international activities of Emfuleni will be
submitted.




                                                                                                                                           234
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



Media Liaison and productions

The office will deal largely with promoting the image of the council externally. All inquiries from the media and community are to be directed
to this functionary who mainly will respond after consultations with the relevant persons and within the promised time.

In an endeavour to render pro-active communication service, media releases and briefings will be arranged as well as production of external
publications. The establishment and maintenance of home pages and websites on the internet will be effected in this office by website
master.

Policy and Research

The office will handle the internal communication function and external communication support for the Executive Mayor, Mayoral
Committee members and the Speaker as well as Councillors.

Primarily the office will build team spirit with communications to the Council staff through the regular running of internal publications and co-
ordination of information dissemination.

The office will investigate topical issues which will be forwarded to various officials to formulate responses to the issues that are identified for
the Executive Mayor, Mayoral Committee members and/or the Speaker.

Development and updating of statistics data base to feed the information office will be handled in this office as well as communication within
the district area.

City marketing promotion

The office would primarily deal with marketing and promotions plan whose main aim will be to attract people, tourists and investments in
Emfuleni.
Once the functionary is identified or appointed, the process of identifying the focus of marketing Emfuleni will start which will also lead to
designing a marketing plan. The cornerstone of the marketing plan will be based on what is good about Emfuleni and what issues the
Council wishes to promote. Issues relating to the corporate logo and name changes will be facilitated by the functionary.




                                                                                                                                                235

Location of the service units

The future location of the communications service unit/division needs to be decided upon as part of the overall restructuring process.

The detailed duties and procedures of the functionaries as well as strategies and programmes will be finalised immediately after a strategic
decision is taken. A specific business plan and implementation plan to support the communication strategy will be developed upon the
appointment of the communication team.

Communication Comment

As a measure of placing a high premium on effective communication, it is suggested that every report should contain a communication
comment which stipulates the main target audience to be affected or influenced by the envisaged resolutions and the most appropriate
channel of communication to be used to convey the message. The author of the report may consult with the relevant media office for advice,
where necessary.

5.2 HIV and AIDS STRATEGIES

Introduction

The HIV/AIDS epidemic will affect every workplace, with prolonged staff illness, absenteeism, and death impacting on productivity, employee
benefits, occupational health and safety, loss of skilled labour, increased production costs and workplace morale. HIV/AIDS is still a disease
surrounded by ignorance, prejudice, discrimination and stigma.

In the workplace unfair discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS has been perpetrated through wide spread practices such as pre-
employment HIV testing, dismissals for being HIV positive and the denial of employee benefits.

Although no data is available at present to reflect the status of HIV/AIDS within Emfuleni Local Municipality employment, conservative
statistics indicate that as much as 42% women and 22% of men attended in Emfuleni clinics are HIV positive. It is likely that these may
include Emfuleni employees and/or their families.




                                                                                                                                          236

DISCUSSION

Legal Framework

This policy has been developed within the framework of the National and Provincial policies and strategies, and also taking cognizance of
legislation impacting on HIV/AIDS relating to the following Acts:

•      The Constitution, which accords every person, inclusive of people living with AIDS, human rights. All persons with HIV or AIDS have
       a right to privacy, including privacy concerning their HIV or AIDS status.
•      The Labour Relation’s Act No 66 of 1996, which protects all employees, inclusive of people living with HIV/AIDS, against unfair
       labour practice and dismissal on the basis of ones HIV status.
•      Basic Conditions of Employment Act, No.131 0f 1998, states that every employer is obliged to ensure that all employees receive
       certain basic standards of employment, including a minimum number of sick leave days.
•      Employment Equity Act No 55 of 1995 prevents unfair discrimination against an employee or an applicant for employment on the
       basis of ones HIV/AIDS status.
•      Occupational Health and Safety Act No 85 of 1993, an employer is obliged to provide a safe working environment. This has to
       include ensuring that the risk of occupational exposure to HIV is minimized.

Legal Obligations of Employers

Employers and employees must take notice of the Labour Relations Act and especially the Constitution of South Africa as supreme law that
protects every individual living with HIV/AIDS from arbitrary or unfair discrimination based on their HIV status.

Regardless of their HIV status workers have a right to equal treatment and freedom from unfair discriminatory labour practices. It specifically
acknowledges the right to privacy, equality, dignity and fair labour practices.

HIV infected employees should continue to work under normal conditions in their current employment for as long as they are
medically fit to do so.

In managing HIV positive and people living with AIDS, the employer should work to maximize the performance of all employees.
This includes reasonable accommodation for employees who develop conditions associated with HIV/AIDS to help ensure that they
maintain their employment for as long as possible.




                                                                                                                                           237

Employees with HIV or AIDS have the same rights to sick leave as other employees, and a joint investigation by the employer and
employee should be undertaken to consider alternative sick leave allocations, in accordance with the Basic Conditions of
Employment Act, No. 75 of 1997.

The employer should take all reasonable steps to assist employees with referrals to appropriate health, welfare and psychosocial
facilities within the community, if such services are not provided at the workplace.

The employer also has a responsibility to develop and implement an HIV/AIDS policy and programme. One of the most effective ways of
reducing and managing the impact of HIV/AIDS in the workplace is through the implementation of an HIV/AIDS policy and programme.

Goals of the Policy

The policy and programmes should seek to attain the following broad goals:

•      Eliminating unfair discrimination in the workplace based on ones HIV status,
•      Promoting a non-discriminatory working environment in which people living with HIV/AIDS are able to be open about their
       status without fear of stigma or rejection,
•      Promoting appropriate and effective ways of managing HIV and reduce the impact of the epidemic in the workplace;
•      Creating a balance between the rights and responsibilities of all parties,
•      Introducing measures to prevent the spread of HIV through awareness programmes for employees,
•      Supporting those individuals who are infected and affected by HIV/AIDS so that they may continue to work productively for
       as long as possible, and
•      Providing equitable employee benefits.


The objectives are:

•      To provide guidelines on how to manage HIV/AIDS as a life threatening disease in the workplace.
•      To protect the legal rights of all employees at work including those who are HIV positive or people with AIDS.
•      To minimize as far as possible the spread of the disease and the impact thereof, within the organization and amongst all stakeholders.
•      To ensure the availability of a network of support structures for employees.




                                                                                                                                         238

•      To encourage those employees who are infected/affected to seek counseling and other treatment and support services, so as to
       improve their overall health status.
•      To ensure the provision of a safe, health and productive working environment.

Impact of HIV/Aids in the Workplace

Increased Number Of Sick Employees

As infected employees become ill they will take additional sick leave, this will disrupt the operation of the institution for which they work. The
disruption will be amplified when the more qualified and experienced employees are absent, as finding a temporary replacement is much
more difficult.

Deaths Or Retirement Due To HIV/AIDS

The impact of the death or retirement of an infected employee is similar to morbidity, although the problems are permanent. Training and
recruitment is costly and disrupts operations.

Components of the Policy

The policy should include the following, the:

•      The position of Emfuleni with regards to HIV/AIDS,
•      An outline of the HIV programme,
•      Details on employment policies (e.g. position regarding HIV testing, employee benefits and performance management),
•      Set out the means of communication within the organization on HIV/AIDS issues,
•      Express standards of behaviour expected of employers and employees, and
•      Monitoring and evaluation mechanisms.




                                                                                                                                              239
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

Workplace HIV/AIDS Programme

The Emfuleni Municipality should ensure that it develops and implements a workplace HIV/AIDS programme aimed at preventing new
infections, providing care and support for employees who are infected or affected, and managing the impact of the epidemic on the
organization.

The nature and extent of a workplace programme should be guided by the needs and capacity of individual workplace. However, it is
proposed that every workplace programme should attempt to address the following areas in addressing HIV/AIDS in the workplace:

Role of Managers

Managers and officials responsible for employees’ well-being are tasked with the responsibility of:

a)     Ensuring communication of this policy to all employees.
b)     Supporting and facilitating the corporate HIV/AIDS response programme.
c)     Reporting on progress and programme implementation.
d)     Creation of a supportive and non-discriminatory working environment.
e)     Adhering to ethical codes of practice when dealing with employee living with HIV/AIDS, as stipulated in the policy guidelines.
f)     Implement, monitor and evaluate the department’s HIV/AIDS programme.

Each Head of Department bears direct responsibility for the HIV/AIDS programme in his/her department and must ensure that this policy is
adhered to and employees living with HIV/AIDS are not stigmatized or discriminated against by other employees.

CONCLUSION

The development and implementation of the HIV/AIDS policy and programme within the workplace will encourage openness, acceptance,
disclosure, and care and support of infected and affected employees.

Employees living with HIV/AIDS have the same rights as all other employees. An employee with HIV/AIDS is expected to meet the same
performance requirements that apply to other employees. Unless a situation arises where his/her performance is affected, it is the
management’s duty to adjust the work schedule or workstation where possible to provide for more convenient circumstances for the
employee. Where other alternatives are not available, consider an application for Health retirement benefits.




                                                                                                                                        240
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________




The co-workers of persons living with HIV/AIDS are expected to continue normal working relationships with such persons. Refusal by fellow
workers to work with an infected person will be regarded as unacceptable and may lead to disciplinary action, where appropriate. All
personnel involved in the counselling and medical aspects of the programme will be professionally qualified and registered and will operate
within strict ethical boundaries.

Regular programme evaluation and reviews should be carried out and, where necessary, changes to the workplace programme should be
agreed upon and implemented by all parties.


5.3 INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY USAGE POLICY

Introduction

Emfuleni Local Municipality makes extensive use of Information Management and Information Systems. It has thus become vitally important
to protect its resources. For this reason, the protection of both the integrity and correct usage of IT resources has become imperative.

The aim of this policy is to ensure that the IT infrastructure is being used in a correct and responsible manner in accordance with high
standards of professional conduct, and primarily in accordance with Emfuleni Local Municipality code of conduct.

Ownership

Emfuleni Local Municipality installed the IT infrastructure to facilitate business operations. Although each employee has an individual login
name and password to access the systems, it remains the Company’s property, and as such is accessible at all times by the management of
Sedibeng District Municipality. These systems are subject to periodic unannounced inspection and audit. All system passwords or
encryption keys must be made available to management during such an inspection or audit.

All documents, e-mails and information are company records, and therefore may be disclosed within the company without an employee’s
permission. An employee cannot therefore assume that any information, be it personal or business, whether stored on the network or on their
allocated PC’s hard-drive, is confidential to them. All backup copies of any information stored on the systems and maintained by Emfuleni
Local Municipality may be used for both business and legal purposes.




                                                                                                                                         241
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



Personal Use

The IT infrastructure is provided for business use; however it is within the discretion of the relevant manager to permit a user limited private
use. The private use of any IM resources is a privilege, not a right, and should in consequence be used in a responsible manner in
accordance with high standards of professional conduct and primarily in accordance with Emfuleni Local Municipality’s code of conduct. The
privilege can and will be revoked without notification if misused.

Users, whose association with the employer is terminated for whatever reason, have no right to access messages addressed to them and
have no right to the content of such messages – whether official or private.

Offensive and Destructive Material

Offensive material is considered material which a reasonable person would see as pornographic, insulting, disruptive, offensive, harmful or
immoral to other persons; or material that contains sexually explicit cartoons or jokes, unwelcome propositions, ethnic or racial slurs; or, that
can be construed to be harassment or disparagingly to others based on their sex, race, sexual orientation, age, national origin, religious or
political beliefs.

Employees are strictly prohibited from accessing, storing or distributing any offensive material purposefully or accidentally whilst using any
part of Sedibeng District Municipality’s IM infrastructure. Apart from the abovementioned, employees are not permitted to access, distribute
or store any material which a reasonable person would see as being unlawful, obscene, threatening, abusive, libellous or harmful, or
encourage conduct that would constitute a criminal offence or give rise to civil liability or breach of Municipal policies.

The above definitions will be applied objectively, and as such, it will be immaterial whether the recipient subjectively considers the material
not to be offensive or repugnant to their own beliefs/standards.

Users

A formal application for access to the Information Management Infrastructure must be logged with the Head: Information Management. The
Head: Information Management will only approve creation of a user id and appropriate access after the appropriate documentation has been
completed.




                                                                                                                                             242
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



The completion of the Network Access Form is required for each new user and approval by the respective Head of Department is
mandatory before submission to the Department: Information Management.

Application forms are available from the Department: Information Management.

Password

Each user has a unique login name and password to access the different systems. The login name and passwords are the responsibility of
the owner (user) and may not be divulged to any person whatsoever. In the case of unauthorized access to applications due to illegal use of
passwords, the user will be held fully responsible for any consequences.

In the event of a user taking leave of absence and other users may need to access information stored by this user, the Head of the
Department shall duly instruct the user to avail this information to the designated user within the department. If a temporary or substitute
person is appointed the Head of Department shall inform the Department: Information Management of this fact in advance. A temporary user
will be created as soon as the appropriate forms are completed.

Passwords are obligatory in all levels of access and must conform to the following standards:-

       a)     The minimum length of password must be (6) six characters;
       b)     The passwords must be changed every (40) forty days (minimum).
       c)     The password must be changed before the maximum of (6) six grace login’s has been used.
       d)     The use of common word, for example, name, surname, birth date, etc are not permitted, and the use of alternating passwords
              is strongly discouraged. If a breach of security in this regard is discovered, disciplinary procedures will be invoked.

The Department: Information Management cannot access a user’s password and is not in a position to view any passwords. A user’s
password will only be changed with permission of the user or the Head of Department.

The practice of writing down and affixing the password to the Screen or CPU is strictly forbidden. If a breach of security in this regard is
discovered, disciplinary procedures will be invoked.




                                                                                                                                        243

EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



No software may be procured without prior consultation the Department: Information Management. This measure will ensure compatible
software and will enable proper, cost effective utilization of software.

The Head: Information Management will keep all software licenses.

Backup Procedures and Login Restrictions

A Scheduled backup procedure runs every night from 18:45 to 23:00. User login is restricted during this period. When a user is still logged in
during backup a warning will be display and after 2 minutes the Backup Software will log out the user. All information on the Network is saved
to tape during this period. This action takes place at the main IM Office in Vereeniging. Back-ups are stored off-site according to appropriate
disaster recovery standards.

Documents and other information can be restored from these tapes in case of accidental damage or deletion. A Cycle of (15) fifteen back-up
tapes is used, thus allowing the restore of data approximately (15) fifteen days “old”. Please allow sufficient time for restore operations as
tapes need to be collected from the off-site storage area and appropriate restore procedures must be followed to save guard existing data.

It is the responsibility of each user to backup any data saved on the Local drive of the respective Desktop/Laptop onto the network. The
Department: Information Management does not accept any liability for information stored on the local drive and cannot guarantee security of
this information.

Please note that login is restricted between 18:45 and 6:30 from Friday to Monday. If a user needs access to the network during restricted
hours please contact the IM Help Desk at least (24) twenty-four hours before, for the necessary arrangements.

Users are restricted to one login account on the Network. No exceptions will be made as user login is restricted by the Audit General
Standard Procedures. There are no restrictions to a PC as long as the default context and server is applicable.


Shutting Down your PC

Please shut down your PC following the proper Windows Shut Down procedures before you leave the office at the end of your working day.
This ensures fast and efficient backup of your environment, save power and minimizes wear and tear to hardware components, prevents
unauthorized access to your PC and information and reduces risk to the Council.




                                                                                                                                           245
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



Internet

Certain staff members will be given access to the Internet. The reason being to afford such Staff Members the opportunity of accessing the
Internet, primarily for business use, but also for limited personal use if and when necessary.

Access to the Internet will be conducted in a responsible manner, in accordance with the highest standards of professional conduct. The
essence of professionalism is an attitude and a commitment to high standards of integrity and honourable conduct.

The Head: Information Management will approve access after a motivational letter from the requesting Head of the Department is received.

Access to the Internet will be conducted with due regards to other staff members. Use for business purposes will take precedence over use
for personal purposes. Access to offensive material (see section 4) is prohibited and the use of the Internet must be conducted in
accordance with the rest of the IT usage policy.

Only informational documents may be downloaded (saving to disk) from the Internet. Any material such as graphic files, executable files,
games; jokes, screensavers, screen backgrounds, .tif; .mpr; .wav; .bmp; .gif files etc may not be downloaded.

Internet Control Procedures

Authentication can be enabled to allow each staff member to enter a unique login and password before access to the web is permitted. This
will enable Border Manager (the firewall used by Emfuleni Local Municipality) to monitor the web site being accessed by each user on the
system. Each computer has a unique IP Address that can be used as an alternative method of monitoring and tracing. Each user accepts
full responsibility for his/her password (section 6) and will carry responsibility for actions performed by the user of the password.

All sites accessed and files downloaded buy users is monitored by specialist software installed for this purpose. The Department: Information
Management audit these reports on a daily basis. The privilege of Internet Access will be revoked immediately for users accessing offensive
and/or destructive material (section 4) as well as excessive visiting of non-work related sites. Users abusing the right of access will be
reported to their relevant Department Head and disciplinary action could result.

Each manager may receive a monthly report reflecting the web sites accessed and the duration of the respective visits.




                                                                                                                                         246
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



E-Mail

The Electronic Mail system as with the rest of the IT infrastructure is owned by Emfuleni Local Municipality and therefore should be used
primarily for company business purposes. As stated in the previous section on ownership, the company allows limited use of the mailing
system for personal use but this must however be used in a responsible manner in accordance with high standards of professional conduct
and primarily in accordance with policies.

Employees are strictly prohibited from sending or forwarding any e-mails or attachment to e-mails where the content is seen to be offensive.
Employees must take the necessary precautions regarding any forms of internet and network access so not to disclose the employer’s
confidential information, including, but not restricted to business plans, marketing strategies, product development plans, client lists and
information, as well as financial information. To prevent congestion and delay in the network, files attached to messages should not exceed
2MB. If an employee receives any e-mails or an attachment to an e-mail where the content is seen to be offensive, the following procedure
should be followed:-

         a)   The e-mail should be deleted immediately;
         b)   An e-mail must be sent to the sender stating that it is a breach of Sedibeng District Municipality and its Local Councils policies
              to receive e-mails with content of this nature.

An e-mail or an attachment to an e-mail received with offensive content may not be forwarded to any internal or external addressee unless
authorization by Sedibeng District Municipality Management to do so has been obtained. Chain letters are e-mails that contain a request (or
demand) that they be sent to as many people as possible. They often contain a plea stating that by sending the letter on; you will be helping
a sick child etc. Or, alternatively they play on one’s superstition i.e. that you will have bad luck if the message is not sent on.

Under no circumstances is an employee permitted to forward chain letters through the e-mailing system, be it internally within Emfuleni Local
Municipality to any other external source. If you believe you must pass the letter on, the letter may be printed. The matter is then regarded
as personal and such should be performed completely outside the office.

E-Mail Control Procedures

All internal and external e-mails that are sent and received are monitored by the IM Department. If any e-mail is suspected of containing any
offensive material, it may be accessed and the content thereof revealed to the relevant managers. Please refer to section 3 – Personal Use.




                                                                                                                                            247
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

vendors have been instructed that any requests attended to without the proper procedures having been followed will not be for the account of
Sedibeng District Municipality and its Local Councils. In cases where a staff member does not follow this procedure, any charge levied by the
vendor, will be for the personal account of the relevant staff member.

5.4 WATER SERVICES DEVELOPMENT PLAN

Introduction

Emfuleni Local Municipality is the Water Services Authority (WSA) with Metsi-a-Lekoa the Water Services Provider (WSP). The Water Act
requires a WSA to prepare a Water Services Development Plan (WSDP) each year.

New guidelines were drafted during mid 2005 for the development of a WSDP by Department of Water Affairs and Forestry. This new format
aims to transform the previous data table format to a strategic plan format addressing not only issues such as existing information and
statistics but also to provide gap analysis, future trends and goal and strategic solutions.

With this 2006/07 WSDP, information was taken from the previous format and feed into the new format by DWAF. This WSDP will serve as
basis for future WSDP plans. The complexity of the above requirement makes it impossible to achieve the result into one document; therefore
the WSDP will be up-graded each year over a 5 year period.

      WSDP Goals

       The WSDP is not simply a legal requirement; it is a tool towards achieving sustainable water services (where water services
       include both water supply and sanitation services). In addressing sustainable water services, there are three major goals that WSA
       should aim to achieve. These are:
         Delivery of sustainable water services
         Integrated water resource management
         Efficient and effective water services institutional arrangements (WSA capacity and WSP arrangements)




                                                                                                                                         249

Socio-Economic Profile

The population figures for Emfuleni vary from 665 027 (census 2001), while the Demarcation Board Report of May 2002 indicates a
population of 1 309 849. A report by Booz Allen Hamilton in 1996 places the population at 1 200 110. If the quantity of water consumed per
capita is utilised as a measure of realism, the Demarcation Board and Town Planning figures are considered to be more realistic than the
census 2001 figures. Although the IDP Steering Committee recommends that the Census 2001 data should be used as a basis for the
population data, {see Emfuleni Local Municipality IDP 2004/05 and 2005/06} the number of people from that census does not correlate with
the number of formal stands and the informal dwellings that were physically counted. Thus the current number of stands and dwellings as
counted, will be used as a basis with an average of 5 persons per household unit for the population in 2005. This data will be used as a basis
and will be extrapolated at a growth rate of 2.68% per annum for the population projection in terms of the research by the Vaal Research
Group (2000).

As a result of the significant difference in the population figures, it was decided by Metsi-a-Lekoa to place emphasis in this annual review of
the WSDP upon verifying the number of formally registered stands and to verify the number of informal dwellings. This was done by reviewing
the results of past and current surveys conducted by others. When this process proved unsatisfactory as far as the informal settlements are
concerned, resort was made to physically counting the informal dwellings. The result is that some 224 000 formal stands, informal dwellings
and agricultural land holdings were identified, which indicates that a population around 1 100 000 is realistic.

The growth rate of the area is reputed to be 2, 68% per annum, which is high compared to the national average and to the population figures
from the Demarcation Board and Town Planning studies. The high rate, if it is accurate, could be attributed to the area being close to the
Johannesburg Metropolitan area, and thus being an entry point for new migrants.

The unemployment rate for the area (51, 5%) is also higher than the national average (27.8%). Due to the shrinking of the economy,
unemployment is increasing. The number of households that are living in poverty is high at 46%.

The municipality is characterised, therefore, by a growing population requiring water and sanitation services, against a background of low
income, high unemployment and significant poverty. These aspects all adversely impact upon Metsi-a-Lekoa ability to raise finances from
consumers for capital works and to attain a high level of payment for operations and maintenance. As a result, the water and sanitation
services will be very dependent upon Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) finance for capital works and Equitable Share funding for
operations and maintenance.

Service Level Policy

Of crucial importance in planning for the future is for the WSA to have a service level policy. This involves identifying the different levels of
service that will be offered by the WSA and highlighting what the capital and operating cost implications of each level will be. This policy might
include what level of service can be provided free of charge versus what levels consumers will be expected to pay for. It is essential that a
policy of this nature be in place before targets can be finalised.

In terms of the national guidelines of DWAF, basic services are:




                                                                                                                                              252

Water stand pipe at 200 meters from household, this would include 6 kilo-liter free” water, and dry sanitation at each stand. Dry sanitation can
be a Ventilated Improved Pit (VIP) latrines or an equivalent.

The following targets are put by national government:
Basic water supply to all by 2080
Basic sanitation to all by 2010

Council adopted a policy on 14 July 2005 to provide an intermediate LOS 2 to all new economical developments. The Gauteng Provincial
Government of Housing has issued a declaration requiring waterborne sanitation to be the basic level of service for Gauteng during mid 2005.
The implication is that expectations of informals are that full level of water and sanitation services will be provided. This comes at a high cost,
with is not always affordable. Various relationships exist between the level of service, level of payment and level of revenue management. All
of these have been described in various policies, by-laws and tariffs that govern these issues.

Based on the above a revised policy could be adopted by Council to provide full waterborne LOS 3.

Service Level Profile

Historically the operations and management of Water Services have been under the control of Emfuleni and Sedibeng through the Lekoa
Water Company. As part of Emfuleni's strategy, a decision was taken by Council to reinforce the provision of water services in the area of
jurisdiction of Emfuleni through the establishment of Metsi-a-Lekoa. This decision was however taken on the understanding that the new
entity will ensure financial turnaround and sustainability through economies of scale, operational efficiency, effective financial planning and
customer services management.

Emfuleni covers an area of just under 990 square kilometres. The municipality's main residential areas are Vanderbijlpark, Vereeniging,
Evaton, Sharpeville and Sebokeng. Water and sanitation services are provided within the municipality by a utility, Metsi-a-Lekoa, which is
wholly owned by Emfuleni. The approved capital budget for Metsi-a-Lekoa for the 2005/2006 financial year is R22 million, and the proposed
budget for the 2006/2007 financial year is R 36 million. The main source of funding is from MIG (61%). The operating budget for the
2005/2006 financial year is R 490 million, and the proposed operating budget for 2006/2007 is still in process. A significant source of funding
for this purpose is the Equitable Share.

   1. R35M has been spent on the refurbishment of sewer infrastructure, preventative maintenance and network upgrading. Spillages
      have to date been reduced to manageable levels.

The total wastewater flow generated by the three wastewater treatment works, Sebokeng, Rietspruit and Leeuwkuil 133 Ml/day (average dry
weather flow), represents about 66 % of the total bulk water demand, which is considered reasonable.

Metsi-a-Lekoa provides water services to about 140 000 stands. Some 99% of the residents have house or yard connections and only about
1% is un-served. In terms of sanitation provision 63% of households have higher than basic service and 37% have no service.

   Future Issues

         o   Water demand Management

         An integrated water resource planning approach is in process to be introduced. It involves the concurrent consideration of future
         water supply resources (such as from the Vaal River) and water demand management options to enable the future demand for
         water to be met not by only developing additional resources, but also by reducing the growth in water demand. Although Metsi-a-
         Lekoa has embarked on a water loss reduction process, an integrated water resource plan is required to prioritize the development
         of not only future resources but to take cognizance of water demand management initiatives.

         Water demand can entails the following:
           o Control of excessive system pressures to reduce the flow rate through defects in pipelines and also increase the
                deterioration and condition of the water works and fittings. Pressure management by reducing pressures at
                night when pressures generally rise as demand decreases, is done through the use of “smart pressure reducing
                valves”.
           o Identify high loss areas and “zoom” into these areas by measuring smaller areas and repair internal and
                external water pipes, internal house plumbing leaks.
           o Reduce water supply to individuals or areas.

         o   Un-accounted for Water

         Unaccounted for water is defined as the difference between the measured volumes of water put into the supply system and the
         total volume of water measured to authorized consumers.
         Internal plumbing leaks are leaks past the consumer meter. Such leaks can be assessed through sample surveys of consumer
         households and by analysing the minimum night flow of bulk meters.

         o   Asset Management Program

         A critical aspect that needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency is the management of infra-structure services assets.
         Inadequate attention to this aspect will eventually lead to the deterioration of the current infrastructure with a resulting break down
         of service delivery to customers, and prevent future developments which are crucial for generating work and income.

         The first step in management of assets is to capture all infra-structure on a computer system. This is in process but needs to be
         corrected and re-fined over time in order to capture a 100% correct model of infra-structure.

         A system like the WMS (Water Management System) linked to an assets register, can assist officials to view details of
         infrastructure as well as graphs and reports in order to optimize the water and sewerage systems and operations.

         o   Sewer rehabilitation

         Central Treasury has made a restructuring grant available to Emfuleni Local Municipality. The main focus is seen as the
         prevention of disease transmission e g typhoid which is possible in the event of both raw sewage spillages (from pump stations)
         and contaminated discharges from the works.
         The proposed solution is to provide relief in a phased approach. Phase 1, dubbed Short Term, is to rectify the most serious
         shortcomings at the pump stations and at the Rietspruit and Leeuwkuil works without any basic changes to the existing
         infrastructure (note that Sebokeng has recently been extended utilizing up to date technology).

         While this will give a significant improvement to overall performance, problems which could result in raw sewage spillage cannot be
         ruled out. An early warning telemetry system is accordingly proposed, together with portable standby pumps and diesel electricity
         generators to enable a problem to be attended to in the shortest possible time. The estimated costs are:

         Phase 2 the Long Term Solution, is reckoned to take at least 6 years to implement fully. This phase concentrates on reducing
         the 51 pump stations to the bare minimum of 4 and also on rationalizing the treatment aspect.

         The proposal is to construct a system of outfall sewers from the present Sebokeng, Leeuwkuil and Rietspruit works to a new
         wastewater treatment works in the south of Emfuleni and then to decommission the existing three works. Meyerton’s wastewater
         treatment works could also be included in the scheme to further streamline the wastewater handling process and to reduce the
         risks of pollution. The estimated cost of the scheme is around R400M. Implementation time is 5 to 7 years.

5.5 DRAFT EXECUTIVE SUMMARY INTEGRATED WASTE MANAGEMENT PLAN

Introduction

The Sedibeng District Municipality appointed KV3 Engineers to assist with the compilation of an Integrated Waste Management Plan (IWMP)
for the District Municipality as well as the three Local Municipalities they represent. As a requirement of the National Waste Management
Strategy (NWMS) and the IDP Process all Municipalities are faced with the obligation to compile such a plan.
The compilation of this IWMP will be done in line with National and Provincial Guidelines as issued by DEAT as well as the Gauteng
Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Environment. The process will consist of two phases, the first being an assessment of the status
quo and a needs analysis and the second future planning and the finalisation of a Master Plan.
An IWMP is a plan, which has been compiled to provide the most cost-effective and technically and environmentally acceptable solutions to
the total waste management of your organisation. It will address the Status Quo, analyse the needs, address the strengths and weaknesses,
and address risks and then offer solutions to ensure responsible waste management. As such it will address waste generation, waste
minimisation and re-use, collection of all waste, possible locality and type of transfer stations, transportation, processing of special or
hazardous wastes and disposal according to environmentally sound practises and within the requirements of relevant legislation and
regulations
Information regarding all waste related issues was obtained from the following sources:
          • All relevant records of the Solid Waste Disposal Services were obtained for the purposes of the study.
          • Relevant officials from the Municipality were interviewed.
          • All the areas in the study area were visited to obtain first hand knowledge of the existing status of the waste management
              service rendered.
          • Details regarding medical waste generators were obtained from the relevant medical facilities.
          • Mines in the area were contacted obtain information regarding their waste disposal methods.
The investigation commenced at during the month of February with the Status Quo Investigation and will complete with the approval of the
Integrated Waste Management Plans.

Status quo

The status quo investigation had as its aim to establish what systems and services the Municipality had in place. The following table
summarises the existing situation:

Conclusion

Disposal Infrastructure

The Municipality at the moment has a severe problem regarding sufficient landfill space and cost escalations for disposal. The Boitshepi
Landfill Site has approximately three years of airspace left. The Municipality therefore is in an urgent need to establish a new landfill site for
Boitshepi and the Sebokeng – Evaton area also requires a landfill site. The existing landfills should be upgraded and the management of
Palm Springs and Waldrift Landfill needs to be improved. The appointment of a private contractor at each of these two sites will solve this
problem and provide a more effective disposal method. This will also expand the life span of the Landfill Sites. The existing Transfer Stations
are in desperate need of upgrading and proper management and development of one more Transfer Station is required in the Vanderbijlpark,
Boipatong Area to provide for disposal of garden refuse and builders rubble after closure of the Zuurfontein Landfill Site. It is also necessary
to compile proper operating manuals to ensure effective management of the respective sites.

Waste Collection Infrastructure

The state of waste collection vehicles in the Emfuleni Municipality is a major concern as vehicles are old and unreliable with no back up
system and limited maintenance budget. The purchase of collection vehicles will improve the service delivery in the Municipality and allow for
the extension of the current service. The standardisation of collection receptacles will also improve the speed and effectiveness of the waste
collection system.
Institutional Capacity and Human Resources

The Emfuleni Municipality presently has no specific staff shortages. However, the future extended service and purchasing of new collection
vehicles (compactors) to upgrade the existing fleet will necessitate employing additional staff. Staff must be trained both locally and by
specialists (where applicable).

Financial Resources

The current billing system does not seem to be effective a pre-paid system should be investigated to be implemented where non-payment of
fees is present.




                                                                                                                                              266
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

Dissemination of Information / Communication

A Waste Information System needs to be developed to ensure effective waste management. This information will also enable the Municipality
to contribute to the quarterly waste management workshops with the other Municipalities in the District Municipality. The aim of these
workshops will be to build capacity within themselves as well as guide Municipalities with less experience.

Management of Illegal Activities

The Municipality has a problem with illegal dumping within the municipal area. To improve the current situation, the Municipality can introduce
a neighbourhood watch system that will aim to prevent illegal dumping within their specific area. The Municipality can also deploy skips at
strategic locations across town to minimise illegal dumping.

Waste Minimisation

The Emfuleni Municipality at the moment does not have any formal recycling activities. Recycling is therefore mainly conducted by the
declaimers on the landfill site and generally not very effective. This can also be attributed to the lack of available market for the recycled
materials. An agreement with a larger recycling company, either on Local or District Municipal Level, will ensure that the recycling service is
conducted in an effective manner by providing an off-set point for recycled material. The distribution of recycle containers throughout town will
further encourage recycling Activities. The implementation of an incentive scheme for in-house waste minimisation for businesses should also
be investigated. Industries, together with the Sedibeng Municipality are currently busy investigating an Industrial Waste Exchange Strategy.
The mechanism of the strategy is that waste is a resource that can thus be used by others elsewhere, reducing transportation cost and
increasing landfill space.

5.6 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF SPATIAL DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORK

The purpose with the Emfuleni Spatial Development Framework (SDF) is firstly to assess the position of the Local Municipality from a
national, provincial and district perspective and secondly to serve as a guide for the Emfuleni Local Municipality in order to ensure that the
spatial development of the municipality links to the overall development perspective for the district. The main purpose will therefore be to
ensure that the local municipality contributes towards the orderly spatial development of the district and ultimately the Gauteng Province.
Also of importance is that this SDF should be viewed as a spatial representation of the recently compiled Integrated Development Plan (IDP)
relevant to the local municipality and the district. Therefore some of the issues identified in the IDP are spatially reflected. It is also to take
notice of other sectoral plans such as the:




                                                                                                                                               267

   •    Integrated Transport Plan;
   •    State of the Environment Report;
   •    Local Economic Development Plan; and
   •    Water Services Development Plan.

The main important impact of the Gauteng Spatial Development Framework is the identification of future urban development between
Vereeniging / Vanderbijlpark and Sebokeng / Evaton, along the R59. Another element, which has an effect on the development proposals, is
the Gauteng Urban Edge as defined in the Gauteng SDF and relevant documentation.

The Sedibeng DM’s SDF, 2004 contains issues to be addressed in the Emfuleni SDF. The Sedibeng District Municipality, consisting of three
local municipalities, namely Lesedi, Midvaal, and Emfuleni Local Municipalities, is located on the southern edge of Gauteng. The greatest
urban concentration within the Sedibeng district is found in Emfuleni, and consists of the following major areas:

   •   The Vereeniging, Vanderbijlpark, Bophelong, Boipatong, Tshepiso and Sharpeville residential areas in the south.
   •   The Sebokeng/Evaton residential complex in the north.
   •   Major industrial development dominated by ISCOR.

The following spatial development objectives have been set in the Sedibeng SDF and were reflected in the Emfuleni SDF, namely:

   •   Formalize and protect a district-wide linked open space system;
   •   Promote a system of functionally defined activity nodes;
   •   Optimize linkages and connectivity;
   •   Strengthen existing urban areas and nodes;
   •   Maximise existing major development opportunities;
   •   Promote high density development along main public transport links; and
   •   Focus Upgrading on Previously Disadvantaged Township Areas.




                                                                                                                                     268
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



The following elements have been addressed in the Sedibeng SDF, and are also reflected in the Emfuleni SDF, namely:

•       The Urban Edge – in the case of Emfuleni the urban edge is mainly around existing urban areas, with little room for expansion, but
        provision has been made for areas where infill and densification can take place. Some amendments are proposed by the Sedibeng DM
        and the following will have an impact on Emfuleni, namely the extension to the east of Sebokeng Unit 10 in order to include the
        approved Boiketlong / Quaggasfontein housing project; and west of Bophelong in order to include vacant land to the river works;

•       Priority Urban Infill and Densification Areas – The area to the west of Sebokeng, between the Golden Highway and the N1 is a priority
        area, along with the area between Sebokeng and Iscor and the area north of Tshepiso;

•       Economic Development Corridor – The area along the eastern side of the R59 display signs of a rudimentary development corridor and
        should be developed as an activity corridor in the future;

•       Vaal River Strategic Development Area – the Vaal River frontage is seen as a strategic area, mainly for tourism. In the Sedibeng SDF it
        is proposed that a strategic plan be drawn up as a matter of priority;

•       Central Business Districts [CBD’s] – In the case of the CBD’s of Vereeniging, (including Vereeniging Extension 2) and Vanderbijlpark,
        these are the main urban concentrations in the area, but they are showing signs of urban decay. Therefore a strategy for their
        revitalisation is needed and should be compiled;

•       Service Upgrading Priority Areas – In the Sedibeng SDF the following areas have been identified as priority areas, namely:

    Sebokeng / Evaton;
    Bophelong abutting Vanderbijlpark;
    Boipatong / Sharpeville / Tshepiso between Vereeniging and Vanderbijlpark; and
    Roshnee / Dadaville;

    •    Long Term Urban Development Area – The area outside the urban edge, between Sebokeng / Evaton is seen as an area for long
         term urban development, once infill and densification has occurred in existing areas;

    •    Focus Areas for Land Reform and Rural LED Development – The area east of the Rietspruit and south of the R54 has been identified
         as it has high agricultural potential, making it suitable for agricultural land reform projects;




                                                                                                                                           269
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

   •   Regional Open Space System – Due to the fact that there is at present not a State of the Environment Report for Emfuleni, this is one
       of the issues that should be addressed in such a report;

   •   Transportation – With reference to rail transport the Sedibeng SDF proposes the upgrading of existing stations and the development
       of inter-modal transport facilities. It is not the intention to expand any of the provincial routes, but the following important provincial
       routes within the Emfuleni area are noted, namely:
           Route 42 – a potential east-west activity spine through the area;
           Route 553 – Golden Highway; and
           Route R82 – linking Emfuleni and Midvaal.

In order to guide spatial development in the entire district, but also to link the five parts of the district together, it is important to evaluate
issues such as the vision and mission statements of the respective Local Municipalities and the district and then to translate these visions and
missions into the spatial context.

The following vision and mission statements for the Emfuleni Local Municipality are of importance:

Vision:       ‘To provide, through governance, an effective and efficient people centred administration that will ensure quality and
sustainable service delivery, thus creating a clean and safe environment that will be conducive to economic growth and wealth within
Emfuleni Local Municipality’

Mission: ‘To achieve its vision the Emfuleni Local Municipality will strive to:
   • Provide a benchmark for good governance;
   • Achieve financially viable and developmental local government;
   • Maximise efficient and effective utilisation of available resources;
   • Improve the quality of life of residents and customers;
   • Provide quality, accessible, affordable and sustainable services;
   • Develop a people centred and friendly local government;
   • Provide a safe and healthy environment; and
   • Create an environment, which will be conducive to economic growth and wealth.’




                                                                                                                                               270
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



Linked to the vision and mission for the Emfuleni LM is macro strategic objectives and sub-strategies as contained in the IDP. Some of these
issues also have a direct impact on the spatial development of the municipality. The following are of importance, namely:

   •   Basic service delivery should be prioritised and acceptable levels of maintenance of service should be maintained;
   •   New investments should be attracted;
   •   Local businesses should be supported and SMME development should be promoted;
   •   An optimal business environment should be crated;
   •   Tourism development should be promoted; and
   •   Planning and land availability should be promoted.

The following issues are of importance for the future spatial development of the Emfuleni LM, namely:
Administrative Composition

The Emfuleni LM is one of three local municipalities within the Sedibeng District Municipality and is located on the western side of the DM. It
covers an area of ±1,276km2.

Based on the 2001 Census figures there are approximately 658,422 people residing in the area. The total population of Emfuleni consist of
approximately 187,044 households, giving an average household size of 3.48. According to information contained in the IDP the population
growth rate is estimated at 2, 85% per annum.

Emfuleni LM is a largely urbanised municipality, with high population concentrations and densities compared to other municipalities within
Sedibeng. Approximately 80% of the total population of Sedibeng is housed within Emfuleni. Referring to population densities, the highest
densities are found in the former township areas – Sebokeng/Evaton, Sharpeville and Bophelong / Boipatong. The population density is also
a reflection of the population composition since most of the African population is also concentrated in areas such as Sebokeng, Evaton,
Sharpeville, Boipatong and Bophelong. The average population density per ha is 6, 6 persons, which reflect the large rural component.

One of the main characteristics of the Emfuleni economy is that it is declining, resulting in increasing levels of unemployment and poverty.
The poverty levels are reflected in the IDP where it is indicated that approximately 42% of the households are in poverty and that 50% of the
unemployed are unemployed for five years.

A detailed State of the Environment Report was compiled for the Sedibeng District Municipality. Issues pertaining to the natural environment
of Emfuleni, impacting on the SDF can be summarised as follows:




                                                                                                                                           271
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

   •   The Vaal River frontage and the water courses offer tourism potential and harbour sensitive fauna and flora and should therefore be
       protected;
   •   Parts of Emfuleni are subjected to air pollution resulting from the extensive heavy steel and chemical industrial activities;
   •   Wood and coal fires in historically disadvantaged areas and informal settlements contributes to air pollution;
   •   Water and ground water pollution are problems – mainly linked to heavy industrial development;
   •   No State of the Environment Report has been compiled for the local municipality – this is needed in order to guide, amongst others,
       land use management in the area.

The qualitative assessment of the main land uses is as follows:

A) Residential Land Use

   In this regard both formal and informal residential suburbs are included. The defined urban areas include the areas of Evaton, Sebokeng,
   Bophelong, Boipatong, Tshepiso, Sharpeville, Vanderbijlpark and Vereeniging. Rural settlements are found in the western portion of the
   municipal area.

B) Industrial, Commercial and Retail Land Uses

   A considerable amount of industrial land is found in Emfuleni LM. These are located especially around Vereeniging and Vanderbijlpark.
   The main uses are for the steel and other related heavy industries. Commercial land uses in Emfuleni includes warehousing, distribution
   and transport businesses and are found in associated with the industrial areas. Retail activities / land uses are concentrated in the
   Central Business Districts of Vereeniging and Vanderbijlpark, with smaller retail centres in the smaller urban areas. Informal retail uses
   are dispersed throughout the former township areas and in the two main towns.

C) Commercial Agriculture

   Commercial agriculture, growth of commercial crops, such as maize, grain sorghum, wheat, soya and dry beans, groundnuts, sunflower
   seeds and vegetables takes place in the rural areas. Livestock farming, including milk, beef, mutton, lamb, eggs and poultry are also
   found. To the north of Vereeniging there are extensive fruit plantations.




                                                                                                                                         272
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



D) Urban and Rural Residential Agriculture

   Rural residential areas are located to the west of the municipal area and display patterns of mixed land uses and have the potential for
   Agri-industries and land redistribution.

   As indicated in various documents, including the IDP and sections of this SDF, the spatial development of the Emfuleni LM is defined by
   certain structural / physical developments, which developed over time, and was linked to certain developmental policies of previous and
   the current government.

Development Trends

The following development trends have been identified:
   • Due to former land development policies, many small pockets of dispersed peri-urban settlements create a distorted urban form which
        is inefficient and unsustainable to maintain;
   • A clearly defined hierarchy of settlements is lacking;
   • Informal settlements with high population densities have poor access to basic services;
   • Informal settlements are not integrated in the urban fabric; and
   • Smallholdings are being threatened by non-complimentary uses.

Economic Constraints

Economic constraints could be summarised as follows:
   • Concern about the high levels of unemployment, impacting on income levels and payment for services;
   • Loss of industries from the area;
   • Need to regenerate Evaton;
   • The area need to be marketed in order to attract new businesses to the area;
   • Job creation – could be linked to Expanded Public Works Programmes and also impacting on the overall levels of unemployment;
   • Reliance on the manufacturing sector and iron and steel in particular has had a major negative impact when this sector faces
      structural changes and has to shed jobs; and
   • Certain factors have been identified hampering new investments in Emfuleni.




                                                                                                                                       273
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

Key Developmental Issues

The following key developmental issues are of importance:
   • Tourism has been identified as a key opportunity are for economic growth;
   • High unemployment levels, linked with poverty levels have an impact on the development of the area;
   • Informal settlements are not integrated in the urban fabric;
   • A consistent / uniform land use system is necessary to achieve equity across the municipality from a land use management
        perspective;
   • There is a lack of east-west connectivity;
   • Road system in low-income areas is poor; and
   • Vaal River as a tourism area should be expanded and utilised.

Development Challenges

The following development challenges have been identified:
   • In the economic development plan two key ‘bottlenecks’ have been identified, namely:
   • Backlog of approvals as well as a technical backlog that affects all planning and land use management in the planning section; and
   • Backlog relating to housing developments inherited through the council merger in the housing section;
   • High levels of pollution from industrial developments need to be addressed;
   • There is a high need for local development plans in order to guide decision-making with regard to land use applications;
   • With reference to housing developments, there is a lack of local funding and continuing housing backlogs and informal settlements
        despite efforts to address the need;
   • Investment in the provision of community facilities, mainly in former disadvantaged areas, are needed;
   • In terms of transportation there is a lack of direct routes, connecting low-income residential areas to areas of opportunity and
        employment;
   • Increase the east-west connectivity;
   • There is a need for a comprehensive Environmental Management Plan;
   • Improve the road system in the low income areas;
   • Promote agricultural development.

Building Blocks Of the Emfuleni SDF

The approach with the compilation of the SDF was that it is required to support the development of the Emfuleni Local Municipality, with
specific focus on economic and social development. Further to this it should be based on the following three principles, namely;
consolidation, focus on the resource base and creation of linkages.

Emfuleni Spatial Development Framework

The respective components of the Emfuleni Spatial Development Framework are the following, namely:
   • Residential Development - Various areas have been identified as strategic development areas for future residential development.
       The strategic development areas, which have been identified within Emfuleni Local Municipality, promote the principles of integration,
       densification and infill development. In view of the above, it is amongst others proposed that areas between Vanderbijlpark and
       Vereeniging, where the land-uses along the river is more intensive, tourism, residential and recreational activities should be promoted
       based on the availability of infrastructure and accessibility. In the outlying areas, the riverfront is extensively used based on the lack of
       adequate infrastructure and personal preferences of landowners. However, a variety of land uses occur along the river. It is proposed
       that residential, tourism, farming or any related activity be supported along the extensive areas, provided that:
           • The activity is not in conflict with other land uses;
           • The development provides its own infrastructure to the satisfaction of all stakeholders;
           • That an environmental impact assessment be conducted; and
           • That the Vaal River not be polluted.

   The development along the Vaal River should be an asset to the benefit of all residents and that the activities be promoted to become a
   ‘value-chain’ as opposed to an ad-hoc development vision.

           •   Industrial Development - As the economic focus of Emfuleni is amongst others on the establishment of service industries in
               support of the major industries (Iscor, Sasol), the spatial representation thereof is explained as follows:

           •   Existing areas within the industrial areas need to be identified and marketed for occupation;
           •   Future industrial areas were proposed to be established and aligned in close proximity to residential areas and accessibility
               routes;
           •   The industrial areas were located away from sensitive environmental areas.




                                                                                                                                                275
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



          •   Agriculture - In general, the following principles must apply within the rural environment:

          •   Subdivisions should not be allowed, and only be based on merit. This will prevent densification and the protection of
              underground water resources in view of the lack of potable water and sanitation systems;
          •   Agri-industries (large) should be established within the industrial areas of Emfuleni Local Municipality;
          •   The Land Redistribution Programmes from the Department of land Affairs (LRAD and others) should be implemented
              throughout the municipal area.

          •   Commercial / Retail - The local municipal area comprise of 2 (two) Central Business District (Vanderbijlpark and
              Vereeniging). The Vereeniging CBD, more than the Vanderbijlpark CBD is characterized by urban decay in the form of
              dilapidated building, vacant retail space and crime. The Central Business Districts need to be rejuvenated by focusing on a
              safe, clean and healthy environment.

          •   Enabling network of linkages - The required approach is to support the development of the Emfuleni Local Municipality to be
              serviced by a well-established network of roads (North / South and East / West) and rail. In order to integrate land use
              (proposed development areas) and transportation corridors, a range of activity nodes and corridor developments are proposed:

   A) Activity Nodes

      Activity “nodes” are “point” developments and are most often located at intersecting or transfer points in the transfer system. They
      predominantly accommodate business activity combined with a high-density residential component. The identified areas are as
      follows: Sebokeng, Evaton, Vacant land to the north of Tshepiso and Boipatong and Rust-ter-Vaal / Roshnee.


   B) Activity Corridors

      Development / Activity corridors feature a combination of transport services and supporting infrastructure in parallel and denser mixed
      land use integrated with the transport system, which includes land uses such as retail, residential, service industries, commercial,
      activities, social, agricultural related uses and recreation. The proposed development corridors are as follows: Moshoeshoe Road,
      Sebokeng; R54, between Sebokeng and Vereeniging; Along the R59 between Meyerton and Vereeniging (partial development only);
      R82, between Vereeniging and De Deur; Barrage Road, between Vereeniging and Vanderbijlpark; K174, Extension of Barrage Road




                                                                                                                                         276

       to the N1; General Hertzog Boulevard (Three Rivers); Johannesburg Road / Adams Street (Evaton); and R57 from the N1
       Southwards.
   •   Tourism - Emfuleni Local Municipality offers a wide variety of tourism activities and the potential for further development. The tourism
       activities must be viewed in isolation and need to be linked within the sub-region to create tourism “value chain”, which will provide the
       tourist the opportunity to visit various activities, which could extent for longer than 1 day.

   •   Environment - Emfuleni Local Municipality is characterized by a variety of environmentally sensitive areas and features. In promoting
       the conservation of the environment, the following proposed:

   •   That high density developments be located away from the riverfront and the flood line area;
   •   That the pollution of dams and rivers be constantly monitored;
   •   That conflicting land use along the Vaal River not be allowed or rehabilitated;
   •   That industries in rural areas not be allowed;
   •   That red data species be protected; and
   •   That a metropolitan Open Space System be implemented throughout the area, which will link natural environmental areas (Vaal River,
       other wetlands and hills).

   •   Economic Catalyst Projects - With the high unemployment rate in Emfuleni Local Municipality, it is important that economic catalyst
       projects be initiated which will revue the economic situation. Some of the initiatives are:

   •   The revitalization of the Central Business District;
   •   The development of Tourism facilities;
   •   The expansion of manufacturing;
   •   The development of activity nodes;
   •   The promotion of vacant industrial stands;
   •   The establishment of urban agriculture and the implementation of land redistribution projects;
   •   The development of housing by the beneficiaries themselves (People’s Housing); and
   •   The investigation into an airport.




                                                                                                                                             277
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



   •   Urban Edge - With the exception of the development area between Vereeniging and Sebokeng, which falls outside the proposed
       urban edge, most of the proposed developments are within the urban edge. Based on the development trends, the land availability /
       suitability model and the inputs as obtained from the Local Municipality, the urban edge need to be amended as follows:

   •   Incorporation of Mantervrede A.H. and portion of Zuurfontein Extension 3 to the south;
   •   Add Cyferpan 548IQ; portion of Steelvalley, Rietkuil 552IQ, Linkholm A.H. and Rietkuil 554IQ to the west of ISCOR and the Golden
       Highway;
   •   Add Eatonside, Waterdal A.H., Kwaggasfontein and portion of Houtkop A.H. to the east of Sebokeng.
   •   Add portion of the Vlakfontein Development, Roshnee, Rust-ter-Vaal.


Capital Investment Framework and Projects

In the Integrated Development Plan for the Emfuleni LM there is a section dealing specifically with projects to be addressed and
implemented. Some of the projects identified will also have a direct impact on the spatial development of the municipality. It is also indicated
that the projects will give effect to the municipality’s macro strategy and sub-strategies as outlined / discussed earlier in the SDF. The
following projects, of which details are contained in the IDP, will have an impact on the development in and around the area:

       Alternative waste management service delivery mechanisms – this project will ultimately result in an Integrated Waste Management
       Strategy, addressing, amongst others, issues pertaining to development of waste sites and transfer of waste;
       Sharpeville Memorial Development and Sharpeville Dam – this project, for which the provincial government is willing to donate funds,
       will serve as a major tourism attraction feature in the area. It is also the intention of the municipality to link this with the redevelopment
       of the Sharpeville Dam;
       Alternative service delivery mechanisms for the management of housing assets – the Emfuleni LM has certain housing assets, which
       should be utilised and managed in order to address housing needs in the area;
       Tax incentive scheme to promote development and rejuvenation of CBD areas – mention was made of the decline in the development
       of the efficient and productive CBD’s and to address related issues in these areas;
       Management of cemeteries – the LM is responsible for 6 cemeteries in the area. Additional land for expansion of these need to be
       identified, and this should be done in consultation with the Sedibeng DM;
       Greater Evaton Renewal Project – this project was launched in April 2004 by the Gauteng Department of Housing in order to facilitate
       the regeneration of the Evaton Township in partnership with other stakeholders on local and provincial level;




                                                                                                                                                 278
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

       Local Economic Development Projects – the following projects, which will have a spatial effect / an effect ultimately on the spatial
       development of the area, are of importance, namely:
              Tourism Development Strategy;
              Tourism and Marketing Promotion;
              Riverfront Development;
              Regional Shopping Centre development;
              CBD Rejuvenation;
              Job creation projects, such as agricultural projects, industrial hive, MIG / Extended Public Works Programme and the
              Bophelong Community Project. efficient and productive CBD’s and to address related issues in these areas;

Land Use Management in Emfuleni

As Emfuleni is comprised of many former administration areas, each is governed by its own town planning scheme or land use regulations.
In this regard the situation can be summarised as follows:

   Town Planning Schemes Bophelong, Vereeniging, Vanderbijlpark and Malelane
   Black Communities Development Act Other African townships
   Peri Urban Areas Town Planning Scheme Former rural areas

Therefore it will be to the advantage of the municipality, developers and administrators, to rationalise the different schemes into one single
scheme. In this regard the Gauteng Planning and Development Act will be an important tool.

Land Use Guidelines

Although a detail land use management system need to be established once the Gauteng Planning Bill has been enacted, the land use table
as contained in detail in the SDF presents a guideline as to evaluate land use applications. The following issues are of importance in this
regard, namely:

       The table in the SDF indicates the respective land uses against the respective development zones and is evaluated in terms of
       complementary merit based and conflicting land uses, which is explained as follows:
       Complimentary land uses: Uses which are complimentary to each other;




                                                                                                                                          279
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________



       Merit based: Land uses which could be established within a specific zone subject to a detailed motivation based on locality,
       accessibility, impact on the adjacent environment and environmental considerations.
       Conflicting Land uses: Uses which could have a negative impact on the dominant use in the area.
       All applications need to be submitted to the Local Municipality;
       Approval of applications will be evaluated in terms of impact on the environment, procedures followed and objections recurred.
       The local Municipality may impose any conditions as deemed necessary.

5.8 The ANC Manifesto

A PLAN TO MAKE LOCAL GOVERNMENT WORK BETTER FOR YOU
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
POWER TO THE PEOPLE THROUGH DEMOCRATIC LOCAL GOVERNMENT!
Throughout its 94 years of struggle, the
African National Congress has fought for the
voice of the people to prevail. It has fought for
the achievement of a democratic state and a
democratic society. It has fought for the
principle that the people shall govern.
We have an opportunity further to give
meaning to this principle in the 2006 third local
government elections since the advent of
democracy in 1994, the second since our new
democratic local government system was established five years ago.
We have an opportunity to enhance and deepen local democracy. We have an
opportunity qualitatively to improve the participation of citizens in the process of
decision-making, in the allocation of resources, and the identification of local needs
and priorities.
We have an opportunity further to put the people at the centre of development, not
merely as beneficiaries, but as drivers of transformation.
During the first five years of democratic local government we have worked together
to change the lives of all our people for the better. We have achieved a great deal
                          already. But much more needs to be done.
                          Building on our achievements and drawing on the lessons
                          derived from our collective experience, we can move even
                          faster and further to realise the goal of a better life for all.
                          We are determined to halve unemployment and poverty by
                          2014, to provide the skills required by the economy, and
                          ensure that all South Africans are fully able to enjoy the full
                          dignity of freedom.
                          Effective, democratic and accountable local government is
                          an integral part of that vision.
                          That is why the ANC has developed a plan to make local
                          government work better for you. Working together with our
                          national and provincial governments - and ensuring the
                          participation of the people - local government will speed up
the delivery of free basic services, build sustainable human settlements and viable
communities, improve all public services, build infrastructure, create job opportunities
and fight poverty.
We will work to ensure that Councillors are responsive, accountable and effective
and that everybody involved in local government understands and honors the duty to
respect and serve the people.
Working together, we will build better communities.
I call on you to vote ANC on 1 March 2006, so that together we achieve new
advances in building a better life for all.

Thabo Mbeki
President




                                                                                      284

USE YOUR POWER TO BUILD YOUR COMMUNITY
The local government elections on 1 March 2006 offer an important opportunity for
you to help build a better South Africa.
Five years ago we set up a new system of local government. For the
first time, South Africans voted for truly democratic and non-racial
councils, which covered the entire country. In the past five years, our
councils have registered remarkable achievements. We have also
learnt many lessons. Building on this experience, together we can
make local government work better for all.
The ANC has a concrete action plan to change our country for the
better. Local government must be in the frontline of that change. On 1
March, you will have an opportunity to choose Municipal Councillors
who will play this role. You have a chance to select the best
organisation and the best candidates to lead your community towards a
better life.


SOUTH AFRICA IS CHANGING FOR THE BETTER
Although there is still a lot of work to be done, many good things have happened
since the first democratic elections in 1994.
    • More people than ever have access to clean water and have electricity in their
        homes.
    • The government promotes the interests of children, persons with disability,
        youth, women and older people better than before.
    • More people have opportunities to improve their lives, to become educated
        and acquire skills, and to help build a better South Africa.
    • The economy is growing and is creating more jobs, enabling us to reduce
        poverty.
    • More South Africans have gained access to housing, land and education, and
        services in clinics are improving.

A PEOPLE'S CONTRACT TO CREATE WORK AND FIGHT POVERTY
In 2004 we celebrated Ten Years of Freedom. In our Third General Election, South
Africans gave the ANC a mandate to move faster in building a better South Africa.
In our Election Manifesto, we pledged ourselves to a vision for 2014 - to build a better
South Africa during the Second Decade of Freedom. The ANC believes that working
together in the next ten years, we can build a South Africa where:
    • A growing economy will enable us to reduce unemployment and poverty by
        half.
    • The economy will have the skills it needs to grow and our people the
        education they need to find employment.
    • Everyone will have access to water, electricity and sanitation.
    • Every South African will be able progressively to exercise their constitutional
        rights and enjoy the full dignity of freedom.
    • There will be fairer distribution of land.
    • There will be compassionate government service to the people.
    • Health services will be better for all and fewer people will be victims of such
        causes of death as violent crime, road accidents, HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis,
        diabetes and other diseases.
    • Serious and priority crimes will be reduced, and the time for accused persons
        to await trial will be reduced.
    • Our country will be an effective force in international relations, and contribute
        to peace and development in Africa and the creation of a better world.




                                                                                    285

CONCRETE STEPS TO BUILD A BETTER LIFE FOR
ALL
To achieve these goals, the ANC government has
developed a detailed programme, which is strictly
monitored to ensure implementation. Though economic
growth has picked up to a level not seen since 1984, more
needs to be done to make sure that all South Africans
experience a better quality of life.
To do this we have identified the things that hold back
higher rates of investment, growth and job-creation; and
we have put in place a programme for accelerated and
shared economic growth. We are confident that, working
together with labour, business and communities, we will reach our targeted growth
rate of at least 6%. Of great importance, we want this growth to benefit the
unemployed and the poor.
Over the next five years government will invest more than R400 billion in
infrastructure to create jobs and fight poverty, building roads, rail networks, dams,
electricity generating plants and communications infrastructure. This will help attract
more investment from business so that more jobs can be created. The infrastructure
plan will also ensure that:
     • By 2010, when South Africa hosts the Soccer World Cup, all households will
          have access to clean running water and decent sanitation.
     • As we celebrate the centenary of the ANC in 2012 every house will have
          access to electricity.
Working together, South Africans can do all these things. The ANC is ready to play
its role.
By supervising the work of all our public representatives in government, we will
ensure that these tasks are met. By improving the capacity of all government
structures to serve the people, we will make government work better for you. By
fighting corruption and arrogance among some who work in government, the ANC is
determined to respect the people's mandate.
But all of us have a contribution to make as citizens, as organisations and as
members of our communities. Achieving the vision of a better life for all depends on
each one us doing their best to succeed. That is why we have called for a People's
Contract to Create Work and Fight Poverty.

WHAT IS THE ROLE OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT IN REALISING THIS
PROGRAMME?
Local government works closest to the people. It is where each of our plans must be
put into practice. It must therefore be an effective instrument for change.
The election on 5 December 2000 was the first fully democratic local election in
South Africa. The system of local government we put in place five years ago gives
you the opportunity to participate in government and the development of your
community.
South Africa's system of local government is one of the youngest and most
democratic in the world. Although much more needs to be done, and although
change has come faster to some areas than others, many communities around the
country have seen positive change in the last five years:
    • Roads have been tarred and streets lit for the first time.
    • Water and electricity have become more accessible than ever before.
    • More houses have been built.
    • Local services like waste removal have improved.




                                                                                   286
EMFULENI IDP2007/08

   •    Free basic services have been provided to many.
   •    Sporting and recreation facilities have been built.
   •    Local government offices have become more effective in meeting the needs
        of the citizens.
While we are pleased with these achievements, we have also taken action to learn
from our experience of the last five years. During our 2004 election campaign and in
community meetings across the country since then, we have heard the views of the
people. You told us about the challenge of ensuring that our policies are properly
implemented at local level.
A number of municipalities face serious challenges in the delivery of basic services.
Many do not have the capacity they need to lead economic development. In some
areas Councillors and officials have done wrong things, serving their own personal
interests rather than the interests of communities.
To build on the progress made, and to correct the weaknesses, the ANC will act
decisively. The ANC will improve interaction with communities to ensure that we join
hands in actual practice to build a better life.

THE ANC HAS AN ACTION PLAN TO MAKE LOCAL GOVERNMENT WORK
BETTER FOR YOU
                             The ANC is determined to make local government work
                             better. We have a plan to achieve this.
                             The ANC government has identified a number of
                             municipalities that need intense, hands-on support. We
                             have assembled high-calibre teams, which are being
                             deployed to work with municipalities to tackle the
                             problems they face.
                             Through this hands-on programme, called Project
Consolidate, the ANC will ensure that national and provincial governments work
harder to build local government. We will intervene to ensure that councils work
better, and are accountable to the community.
The ANC will ensure more resources and trained personnel are provided for local
government. Audits are being conducted of the skills that each municipality needs;
and a programme will be introduced to train Councillors and staff, and to employ
more competent managers and technicians.
The ANC plan to speed up economic growth and job creation will be translated into
concrete steps in each municipality. The Integrated Development Plans our
Councillors will work on with you will include programmes to train more people, open
up work opportunities through the Expanded Public Works Programme, bring in more
investment in areas with economic potential, and provide better education, health,
water, sanitation and other services.
Our programme aims to:
    • Accelerate service delivery so that:
           o No community will still be using the bucket system for sanitation by
                2007.
           o All communities will have access to clean water and decent sanitation
                by 2010.
           o All houses will have access to electricity by 2012.
           o There is universal provision of free basic services.
    • Improve the way government provides housing to ensure better quality
        houses closer to economic opportunities and combat corruption in the
        administration of waiting lists.
    • Improve services at hospitals and clinics, schools, police stations and other
        government centres in our communities.




                                                                                 287
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________

   •    Implement large projects that will help create more work opportunities. These
        will be in every province. Some examples include the Gautrain (Gauteng),
        Coega/Ngqurha (Eastern Cape), fuel-from-maize (Free State), Dube Trade
        Port (KwaZulu Natal), De Hoop Dam Construction (Limpopo), diamond
        processing (Northern Cape), Mafikeng Industrial Development Zone (North
        West), N2 human settlement expansion (Western Cape), and new power
        generating plants (Mpumalanga).
    • Pool resources to build more and better roads, infrastructure for water and
        sanitation, and schools and clinics where they are needed, in rural and urban
        areas alike. By using the approach of the public works programme in
        providing infrastructure, we will ensure that more people have work
        opportunities and are given skills.
    • Implement other special programmes in rural and urban areas where the
        poorest people live, including assistance in setting up food gardens.
    • Assist those who want to set up small businesses with skills, credit and other
        forms of support.
To implement this plan, and ensure that local government moves in step with
provincial and national structures, the ANC will strengthen popular participation by
making Ward Committees more effective. Immediately after the elections, we will put
in place a training programme to make sure that Councillors are able to meet their
mandate. We will resolutely fight laziness, arrogance and corruption.
The ANC is best placed to build partnerships between national and provincial
governments and municipal councils, and thus make things happen faster, more
effectively and in the interest of the people.

PEOPLE'S PARTICIPATION IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT
The ANC will act so that local government works better for you and your community.
We are determined to provide better opportunities for you to take part in moving our
system of local government forward. We will help to improve the functioning of local
government to allow citizens to identify the problems that their community face and
propose solutions to deal with these problems.
Already we have put in place democratic institutions like Ward Committees and
instituted participatory planning processes so that you can have a say in local social
and economic development. Integrated Development Plans (IDPs) must rest on
widespread consultation with the community. We are determined to strengthen
popular forums to build an inclusive and truly developmental system of local
government.
To ensure that everyone pulls in the same direction in building better communities,
every district and metro will hold a Summit for Growth and Development within one
year of the elections. These Summits will bring together social partners -
government, business, labour and community organisations - to develop concrete
steps towards higher rates of local economic growth and poverty-reduction. Each
partner will be encouraged to identify the concrete things that they will do to make
local economic development a reality.
By listening to the people, and working with business, labour and other organisations
in our communities, we can make local government work better for all citizens.

DUTY TO RESPECT AND SERVE THE PEOPLE
The ANC has a code of conduct, which all ANC local
Councillors must swear to uphold. The code requires all
ward Councillors to live in the community that elected
them, and all Councillors to work hard and to listen to the
people.




                                                                                  288
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________

The code will serve as a guide to all Councillors. Their work will be reviewed regularly
to ensure that they meet their obligations. In that way, the ANC will ensure that
Councillors remain accountable to you.
We are committed to building a non-sexist South Africa. Half of the candidates
standing for the ANC are women. The ANC is painfully aware that women carry the
brunt of poverty in most communities. Our programme to empower women
economically and in all other respects will continue. Critical to this programme is the
participation of women at every level of government.
Our plan is also aimed at improving the lives of young people, providing a better
environment for teaching and learning, skills and employment opportunities. To make
sure that this happens, ANC councils will make youth development a critical part of
the programmes and structures of local government.
An important and critical element to improve popular participation in local
development, and assist those living in poverty, is provision of information,
particularly regarding how they can access social and economic opportunities.
Government now employs 1,300 community development workers, with others
undergoing training, so that each community can be serviced by at least one such
public servant. By 2014, we will ensure that each municipality has a One Stop
Government Centre (in addition to 80 now in operation) where citizens can get
information on how to access the opportunities offered by democracy to improve their
lives.

CODE OF CONDUCT FOR ANC COUNCILLORS
Each candidate standing will, before the election, take the following oath in a public
meeting. After signing the oath, the code of conduct will be prominently displayed in
the nearest ANC public representatives' office.
"I            stand              to            serve           the           community.
I solemnly declare that I stand to be elected as a representative of my community,
without      motives       of       material     advantage      or    personal   gain.
As a councilor of the ANC I will place my energies and skills at the disposal of my
community, and carry out the tasks given to me. I will work side by side with the
whole community as we strive to build a better life for all South Africans
I      will    fight     against      corruption     in    any     guise     or  form.
I will listen to the views of the community and hold a public meeting with all
community members to report back on my work, at least four times a year.
I      will     live    in     the      community       that     has     elected   me.
I     will   do      my    best      to    build   and     develop    my     community.
I will uphold the policies of my organisation, the African National Congress."

TOGETHER, WE CAN BUILD BETTER COMMUNITIES
All of us want better service in our schools, community clinics and government
offices. We all want better opportunities to improve the lives of our families. Every
community deserves decent sanitation, good roads, clean neighborhoods and street
lighting.
Together, if we join hands in a People's Contract, we can achieve these goals, so
that each one of us can experience a better life under the South African sky.
Make sure that your local government works. Make sure that the programme for
growth and development succeeds in the area where you live.
Support the plan to make local government work better for you.

Vote in the local government elections on 1 March 2006.
VOTE ANC!

Ward 1

1.1 Area Location

Three Rivers is located between the Klipriver; Sugarbuch River and the Vaal, and
has been known for many years as one of the areas in the Vaal with the most
beautiful environment. The area started its development 83 years ago and initially
situated premises around the three rivers. Population profile consists of just more
than 11,000 residents located in Three Rivers East, Three Rivers Extension 1 and 2
and Three Rivers Proper. Two private hospitals are located close by River square
Shopping centre.

The past 5 years saw the economic development growing five times more than it
used to be and businesses accommodating literally all needs of people.

are situated in this ward and the majority of children attending the schools come from
outside the area. Almost all church denominations are available and based in this
area.

The majority of residents are residing in this area for many years and 3 Retirement
villages are also based in this area. The majority of people are professional people;
business men, and educated. The majority of the people residing in this area have
also been retired already and the knowledge, experience and expertise of these
people cannot be underestimated.

Despite of this development it is also clear that deterioration of the area and service
delivery – regarding maintenance, development and upgrading in this area are
shocking.

Several discussions took place regarding the compiling of priorities and needs in this

Ward 2

2.1 Location

Ward 2 is located on the western side of Moshoeshoe Road and the eastern side of
the Golden Highway and also on the Southern side of Sebokeng. The following are
areas that makes up ward 02: Hostel 3, 4 and Block B hostel 5; zone 14 old
townships; Zone 14 and 17 bond houses; Zone 17 extension and Zone 20 phase 1
RDP houses and Zone 17 informal settlements.

2.2 Electricity

There are at least 5% of the population within the ward that are without electricity
connection; meanwhile electricity in Zone 20 phase 1 cannot stand rain. There are
high masts lights which are not functioning. The area is using both pre-paid and
conventional meters.

2.3 Roads and Stormwater

All the areas within ward 2 do not have street names. Most of the tarred streets have
potholes. The Moshoeshoe road does not have stormwater drainage system which
makes the road inaccessible during normal rainfalls and it gets worse during heavy
rainfalls. The affected area is basically from the cross road of King Moshoeshoe road
and Masoheng to the bridge just before the Sebokeng hospital. Due to the lack of
stormwater drainage system to this road, the ward has been experiencing delays in
emergency services, damages of people’s vehicles, high rise of accidents and the
situation is inconvenient to the community at large.

There are gravel roads within the ward which are in Zone 14, 18, 20 and 21 areas;
Zone 17 extension, Zone 20 and access road to hostel 4. The conditions of these
roads are bad with multiple holes and dust which pollutes the air and cause lung
damages to the community. There had been soil erosion occurring during rainy
seasons on these streets which are without names and stormwater drainage
systems. These streets had been in such a bad condition due to heavy rain fall, traffic
conjunctions, lack of maintenance and negligence from the community by removing
the soil for personal use.

2.4 Water and Sanitation

The following areas within the ward had been connected with water meter readings:
Zone 14, 17, 20 and the hostel. These meters are presently not functioning,
meanwhile some of them are leaking. Metsi-a-Lekoa had done an audit for these
meters, but the hostel had been excluded from this process. The situation at the
hostel is precarious with regard to water supply because pipes installed dates back to
1958 and had never been maintained. There had been numerous leakages and
blockages and people with meters installed had been billed higher. On the other
hand, the community of Zone 17 informal settlement had been surviving on a stand
alone tap that gives access to ±300 shack dwellers. There had been long queues
experienced and some people had engaged on fights for one reason or the other.
There is a need to formalize the area and supply services to the community.




                                                                                    19
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________

2.5 Sanitation

There are pipes within the ward which are small and old, and can no longer carry the
pressure applied to them due to an increase in population which utilise them. The
areas that are mostly affected are hostel 4 in block D and Zone 17. There are also
manholes in Hostel 3 that are without lids and children normally play along these
places. This had caused loss of life within the ward and increased health hazards to
the community. There had been lack of maintenance in this regard. There are still old
toilet systems that are being utilised, especially at Zone 14 old townships.

2.6 Waste management

Refuse removal take place once a week in the following areas: Hostels 3, 4 and 5 in
block B, Zone 14, Zone 17 and 20. Collection is not rendered for Zone 17 informal
settlement. If the day of collection falls on a holiday, no collection is rendered for that
week and illegal dumping results. By-laws on illegal dumping should be enforced and
open land should be utilised to combat illegal dumping which will reduce
environmental pollution. There are rats and snakes where illegal dumping is taking
place especially in zone 20 in the old landfill site.

2.7 Housing

2.7.1 Sebokeng Hostel

There is overcrowding in the hostel where three families are sharing a unit of three
bedrooms and a single kitchen and bathroom. There had been all sorts of problems
as a result of this situation including high crime rate, fights over cleaning, buying of
electricity, and abuse of both women and children, health hazards, lack of privacy
and so on.

2.7.2 RDP houses in Zone 20

These houses were built on a land that was previously a landfill site and were built
without foundation. These houses are now starting to sink. There is no clear
indication on whether proper environmental assessment was conducted, especially
the approval of National Nuclear Regulator for these houses to be built on this type of
land.

2.7.3 Zone 14 old townships

There are numerous backyard shacks built within this area. This had led the capacity
of the infrastructure being compromised.

2.7.4. Zone 14 and 17

People who are living on bond houses had been retrenched, about 60% of them.
This had led to high crime rate because they are supposed to pay back to VESCO
and Banks, the company that owns these houses. A number of evictions had been
evident and vandalism of these properties.




                                                                                        20
EMFULENI IDP2007/08
_________________________________________________________________________

2.7.4 Zone 17 and Extension informal settlements

These people had erected their shacks on land that was supposed to be a
community park. The community needs the park for socialization purposes. Some of
these people living on this land had been people who had been evicted from their
homes. There are also RDP houses.

2.8 Health

There is one clinic within the ward (Zone 17), a temporary structure that gives health
services to ward 2, 17 and 30. This clinic is not well equipped to accommodate this
number of people. There are two nurses and a cleaner, and there is consistent
shortage of drugs and overcrowding is inevitable. There is a need to provide an extra
clinic to accommodate this number of people.

2.9 Education

There are three primary schools (Bula Ditjhaba and Phehello both in Zone 14 and
Lesedi La Thuto in Zone 17) and one secondary school (Moshate Secondary School)
within the ward. There are no Adult Based Education and Early Childhood
Development taking place within the ward. There are no sports facilities and
programmes for the ward and no plans for Matric dance. There had been high rate of
drug abuse within learners and a string of poor results had been the basic outcome.

2.10 Sports and Recreation, Arts and Culture (SRAC) and Libraries

There are no sports facilities and libraries within the ward. The area where a
community hall is built can be extended and developed for some of related activities.
The community hall is poorly structured without a stage and it carries a small
capacity. Insufficient supply of these facilities within the ward had been the direct
cause of drug abuse and teenage pregnancies. There is land available in Zone 17
that could be used to address this issue.

2.11 Land and properties

A land and property audit is needed from council to avail some land as needed by
some of our stakeholders.

2.12 Challenges

   •   Tarring of key streets within the ward, that include streets from no 20505,
       20590, 20575 to 20559
   •   Tarring of access road to Hostel 4
   •   Tarring of street no 2 from Gobizitwana at house no 18307 to 18258 in Zone
       14
   •   Upgrading of the clinic into permanent structure

   •   Rebuilt the RDP houses in Zone 20 to replace the previous ones which were
       poorly built.

Ward 3

3.1 Area Location

Ward 3 covers the area of Boipatong, from Vanderbijlpark via Frikie Meyer you will
turn right to Sekati Street. You will pass Boipatong police station as well as
Boipatong Community services. At the left hand side is Boipatong Hall; the library is
part of Boipatong Hall.

3.2 Demographic Profile

3.2.1 Migration and Population Flows

There is less in terms of migration, however, people move from this ward to other
areas due to employment that forces them to relocate. Another issue relates to
marriage, it affects mostly the female population of this ward because women are
usually expected to move to their husband’s family. This phenomenon relates to
blacks in particular because through apartheid they have been marginalized from the
economic gains of the country, hence most do not qualify to own houses and from
this analysis it comes as no surprise t
