                Kw   Dukuza IDP Review (2006/7)
                                   ii.    PREFACE

Both the Local Municipal Systems Act, 32 of 2000 and the Municipal Finance Management
of 2003 determine that a municipality reviews its Integrated Development Plan on annual
basis. These pieces of legislation require that the process of revising the IDP be inclusive
and participatory. As such, the 4th KwaDukuza IDP Review Process has involved all
stakeholders and role players. According to the Municipal System Act, 32 of 2000, each
municipal council must within a prescribed period after the start of its elected term, adopt a
single, inclusive and strategic plan for the development of the municipality, i.e. the 5-year
integrated development plan.

The IDP is one of the key tools for local government to cope with its developmental role and
it seeks to arrive at decisions on issues such as the municipal budget, land management,
promotion of local economic development and institutional and organisational transformation
in a systematic, strategic and consultative manner. The IDP process provides furthermore
for the integration of the other two tools available to local government to give effect to its
transformation, namely working with local citizens and stakeholder groups, and performance

In compliance with the legislation, the KwaDukuza Municipality has ensured that during the
integrated development planning process, there was a series of IDP Representative Forum
meetings, which were attended by councillors, community leaders, ward committee
representatives, NGO and interested community members. These meetings are of grave
importance, as the IDP should represent the interests of all the role players and

The KwaDukuza Municipality also invited sector departments and parastatals to the
Representative Forum meetings. Through these meetings KwaDukuza Municipality outlined
its IDP, and these strategic partners were then afforded a chance of outlining their
programmes and projects in general and how they can fit in into KwaDukuza IDP.
Departments represented included amongst other the Department of Housing, Department
of Local Government and Traditional Affairs, Department of Agriculture and Department of
Social Welfare.

It is also important to note that the KwaDukuza 2006/11 IDP Review is the beginning of a
comprehensive, participatory and all-inclusive planning process. Through this Draft IDP, the
Council wants to move away from reviewing an IDP merely to satisfy the legislation, as it
aims to develop a real municipal strategic plan, which is the product of a participative
process of all stakeholders and role players. KwaDukuza 2006/11 IDP Review Process saw
the revisiting of the community and stakeholders’ needs that were gathered in 2001, through
a community needs assessment exercise. It is also important to state that the Final
KwaDukuza 2006/11 IDP reflects the municipal programmes and projects that are aimed at
the realisation KwaDukuza Vision 2011.

In preparing this IDP Review, six Representative Forum meetings were held to discuss the
IDP and interact with community representatives on needs and priorities. Sector
departments were also represented at this meeting to gain their input into the IDP process
and to align their projects. Alignment meetings were also held with the Ilembe District
Municipality to ensure that the district as a whole is planning towards the same outcome.
These were held at regular intervals between October 2005 and the final submission. Ilembe

                           Kw     Dukuza IDP Review (2006/7)
Representative Forum meeting was held in November 2005. In addition, a two-day
workshop was held in February 2006, following the Presential Imbizo, to align all the
municipalities within the Ilembe District, sector departments and service providers in their
understanding of the constituents of a credible IDP.

A very crucial point to be noted is that this review constitutes the final review of the IDP
prepared in 2001. With the Local Government elections having taken place on the 1st March
2006, a new Municipal Council has been elected. This Council will now be responsible for
adopting the current review and will embark on a complete and detailed IDP review for the
2007/12 years, which will thereafter be reviewed every year for the forthcoming five years of
the new Council’s term in office.

     A detailed list of comments was received from the Department of Local Government and Traditional Affairs pertaining to the IDP
     Review for the 2005/10 period. These comments are being highlighted here to ensure that these comments are acknowledged and to

2.1    Introduction

The Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, 32 of 2000 determines that a municipality
must undertake a development oriented planning so as to ensure that it strives to achieve
the objectives of local government and gives effect to its developmental duties as set out
in the Constitution.

The KwaDukuza Municipal Council adopted its first IDP in March 2002. Section 34 of the
Systems Act determines that the IDP be reviewed on an annual basis and in accordance
with an assessment of its performance measurements and to the extent that changing
circumstances demand. The KwaDukuza Municipality embarked on the first IDP Review
phase in the first half of 2003. In this respect the first IDP Review Process Plan was
produced and adopted in January 2003.

In November 2003 KwaDukuza Municipality embarked on IDP Second Review Process.
The Second IDP Review Process included among other things the following:

   A programme specifying the time frames for the different planning steps; and
   Appropriate mechanisms, processes and procedures for consultation and participation
   of role players.
   Cost estimates for the review process.

The process plan, its timeframes and mechanisms, processes and procedures were
aligned to those timeframes provided for in the Ilembe District Municipality Framework
Plan dated October 2003.

In August 2005, the KwaDukuza Municipality embarked on its fourth and final IDP Review
under the guidance of the current Council. The Local Government elections occurred on
1st March 2006, which means that a new Council is now in office in the next year to
implement the programmes and projects highlighted within this IDP Review, and it will be
their task to formulate a new IDP for the next five-year period. The Process Plan for the
IDP Fourth Review process includes the following:

   A Programme setting out the schedule of Multi-sectoral and IDP Rep Forum Meetings;
   Integration of sector departments’ programmes with that of KwaDukuza Municipality
   where available and applicable; and
   Timeframes for the finalisation of the Spatial Framework, other sector plans for
   KwaDukuza, KwaDukuza Organisational Restructuring and a Strategic Environmental
   Assessment to be conducted.

The Process Plan is included in Table 2, which also shows the integration of the IDP
Process Plan and that of the Budgetary Process

2.2     The Distribution of Roles and Responsibilities

The Municipality has established an IDP Representative Forum that is representative of
all stakeholders and interested and affected parties. New role players are continuously
added to the list of stakeholders in the IDP Process.

The structures that were utilised during the preparation of the first IDP, and the previous
IDP reviews will continue to be used for purposes of doing this fourth revision. The main
roles and responsibilities allocated to each of the role players are set out below.

2.3 Roles and responsibilities between the municipality and
external role players

   i.  KwaDukuza Municipal Council
The Council prepared and adopted the 4th IDP Review Process Plan. KwaDukuza
Municipal Council is responsible for managing the overall coordination of the planning
process. On completion of the process, EXCO will discuss the Draft 2006/07 IDP Review
and thereafter make recommendations for the Council to adopt the said IDP Review. It is
also the duty of the Council to ensure that there is alignment between the KwaDukuza
framework plan and that of the Ilembe District Council.

  ii.   Councillors
a)      The KwaDukuza Councillors are responsible for creating the link between the
        planning processes with constituencies’ needs and priorities.
b)      Consult with stakeholders and constituencies and provide feedback.
c)      Attend the IDP Rep Forum meetings and ensure alignment between community
        needs, IDP priorities and budgets.

 iii.   Municipal Manager – in consultation with IDP Manager
The late Municipal Manager, Mr. N. Mthembu, through the IDP Manager, was involved in
the preparation of the 2006/07 IDP Review Process Plan. The IDP Manager prepared the
process plan and tabled it before the Council for adoption.
The Acting Municipal Manager, through the IDP Manager will now be responsible for the
a)      Overall management and co-ordination of the planning process
b)      Ensuring that planning process is participatory, strategic in approach and
        implementation oriented and aligned with sector departments MTEF’s

                            Kw Dukuza IDP Review (2006/11)
 iv.   Ilembe District Municipality

KwaDukuza Municipality has also taken part in the district alignment process. The
KwaDukuza Municipality understands the critical importance of alignment with the Ilembe
District as well as neighbouring Municipalities including the eThekwini Municipality and
uThungulu District Municipality. This is especially important for spatial, economic, and
environmental development of the said municipalities.

It is deemed necessary to clarify the powers and functions of district and local
municipalities as they overlap territorially. It needs to be recognised at the outset that the
allocation of powers and functions is in a state of transformation during, which capacity
and ‘best practice’ is developed. Therefore, no definitive description of the respective
powers and functions is possible at this stage.

Focussing on the powers referred to in section 83 of the Municipal Structures Act,
attention is drawn to sections 83(2) and (3). The former requires the powers and functions
to be divided between the district council and all local councils within its area, as set out in
Chapter 5 (sections 83 to 89). The objectives of district councils in the exercise of their
powers and functions is also described therein.

These provisions seem to clearly indicate that the district council plays a co-ordinating
and overseeing role in the municipal sphere of government.

Following the Presedential Imbizo held in December 2005, the Ilembe District Municipality
hosted a two-day alignment workshop in February 2006 to assist the district’s family of
Municipalities regarding alignment with sector departments and service providers.

District Municipalities

The powers granted to the district council to achieve these objectives are set out in
section 84(1)(as amended by Act 33 of 2000). These powers are:

A district municipality has the following functions and powers:
(a) Integrated development planning for the district municipality as a whole,
     including a framework for integrated development plans of all

(c) Bulk supply of electricity which includes for the purposes of such supply
     the transmission, distribution and where applicable the generation of

(p) The imposition and collection of taxes, levies and duties as related to
the above functions or as may be assigned to the district municipality in
terms of national legislation.

Local Municipalities

The local councils have the powers and functions described in section 83(1) save those
reserved for district councils as set out in section 84(1).

Allocation between District and Local Municipalities

Under section 84(3), the national Minister of Provincial and Local Government Affairs
(note – not the provincial MEC) may enable a local council to exercise the powers
referred to in section 84(1)(b), (c), (d) and (i) which are ordinarily reserved for district
councils. These are:

   Potable water supply systems,
   Bulk supply of electricity which includes for the purposes of such supply the
   transmission, distribution and where applicable the generation of electricity,
   Domestic waste-water and sewage disposal systems, and
   Municipal health services, and
   he may do this only after consultation with the national Minister responsible for the
   relevant line function and the MEC for local government.

Such decisions must be notified in the Government Gazette and in such notice he must
deal with transfers of staff, of assets, liabilities, rights and obligations and administrative
and other records, and the continued application of by-laws and resolutions.

Section 85 allows the provincial MEC for local government to adjust certain powers and
functions (other than those contained in section 84(b), (c), (d), (i) – see paragraph 2.4.1
above – and (o)(grants) and (p)(taxes, levies and duties)) between district and local
councils, but within the constraints provided in that section.

Section 86 provides for the resolution of disputes.

Section 87 deals with temporary allocation of powers and functions where a local council
does not have the capacity to carry out a particular power or function.

Section 88 requires district and local councils to co-operate with each other and seek to
achieve unity by consensus.

   v.    IDP Representative Forum
For the purposes of drafting KwaDukuza 2006/07 IDP, four IDP Representative Forum
meetings were scheduled. The first meeting was aimed at presenting and agreeing on the
process plan. As the legislation requires, this meeting was advertised in the local
newspapers. This was to ensure that all relevant stakeholders and interested parties
attend this meeting. The presence of the stakeholders and all the interested parties was
crucial in this meeting since they represent interests and contribute knowledge and ideas
in the planning process. The second Representative Forum meeting served to firstly
introduce the Consultants, Urban-Econ: Development Economists that have been
assisting in formulating the IDP Review. Secondly, the meeting served to obtain the new
community needs list from the ward committees and ward councillors present. This
meeting was held on the 20th of October 2005. The third Representative Forum Meeting
was held on the 30th November 2005 and served as a platform for the discussion of the
first draft of the IDP Review 2006/07. Representatives from sector departments were also
invited to this meeting to offer guidance and also keep the Municipality updated on their
broad plans and how KwaDukuza Municipality is to fit into these plans.

KwaDukuza Council has also engaged the service providers in the area e.g. Eskom and
Siza Water who are actively involved in the identification and packaging of projects in the

2.4 The Way Forward

The Municipality still has one more planned RF meeting; one Ward Committee Meeting
and meetings with the various government departments to arrange and conduct once the
draft report has been published for public comment. Two cluster sector workshops are
also planned for sector departments to be able to engage with the Municipality and
commit to projects for the forthcoming years.

                 Chapter 3: SITUATIONAL ANALYSIS

3.1 KwaDukuza through the bird’s eyes view

KwaDukuza Municipal area of jurisdiction is approximately 633km in extent. It has a
permanent population of 158 583 people (Stats SA:2001). However, the Municipality has
recorded its population at approximately 170 000 people. This population increases to over
200 000 during peak holiday seasons.

The KwaDukuza municipal area stretches from the Zinkwazi River in the north to the Tongaat
River in the South. It borders four Municipalities, viz, eThekwini, Ndwedwe, Maphumulo and
eNdondakusuka. It is one of the four municipalities that make up the Ilembe District
Municipality. KwaDukuza functions as the district node and dominant commercial centre in
the Ilembe District. KwaDukuza Municipality occupies a coastal and inland stretch of
approximately 50 km in length and 14km in width, a variety of clustered and ad hoc
settlements and small towns exist and are linked with a well-developed network of roads and
rail infrastructure. The key feature of KwaDukuza is the N2 Development Corridor that runs
through it.

KwaDukuza is also strategically located between two major ports, viz, Durban and Richards
Bay Ports. This alone gives KwaDukuza an advantage of strategically re -aligning the district
into a competitive and attractive investment destination. The close proximity of the Dube
Trade Port is also an added advantage to the area in terms of investment attraction. It is
important for the Ilembe District Municipality to work in conjunction with the KwaDukuza
Municipality to benefit from this advantage.

The population dynamics of KwaDukuza Municipality is highly diverse due its multi-racial
composition and rich settlement history. KwaDukuza has a distinct eastern flavour and is
linked to the earlier settlement of Indian families who were imported to work on the sugar
cane farms of the big sugar barons such as Sir Liege Hullet.

                            Kw Dukuza IDP Review (2006/11)
The name KwaDukuza epitomizes the historical background of the area being the home to
King Shaka Gravesite and Memorial. The town KwaDukuza is built on the original site of King
Shaka’s Royal settlement called Dukuza. The KwaDukuza museum is situated opposite the
site of King Shaka Memorial and is dedicated to the sugar industry and colonialism, the
cultural heritage of the early settlers of the town Stanger.

The King Shaka Cultural Heritage Tourism Trail is in process of being implemented in
KwaDukuza in honour of the heritage that King Shaka left behind. This project is also known
as the “Gateway to the Zulu Kingdom” of KwaZulu-Natal.

KwaDukuza also boasts to be the home of the first African to win the Nobel Peace Prize,
Chief Albert John Mvumbi Luthuli. During the month of August 2004 South African from all
walks of life joined the people of KwaDukuza in celebrating the life and times of this Son of
Groutville, KwaDukuza. KwaDukuza tourism has also been boosted by the declaration of
Chief Albert Luthuli’s House as a National Monument. Coupled with this was the restoration
of Chief Luthuli’s Grave as well as the renovation of Church in which Chief Albert Luthuli’s
body laid in state.

Investment opportunities range from the tourism sector, light industry, communications and
IT, transport and specifically agriculture in the form of sub-tropical fruits, vegetables,
sugarcane and flowers. The main economic sectors are tourism, sugar, forestry, agro-
industrial manufacturing, furniture manufacturing, clothing, plastic products and paper
manufacturing and paper products. Holiday letting and exclusive elite residential and golf
estates property development is one of the high prized unique selling propositions of the

Concomitant with further development of industry and tourism and up market residential and
estate development, prospects for commercial investment look promising. Major
developments include the King Shaka Cultural and Tourism Heritage Trial, the Zimbali Golf
and Leisure Estate extension, the Zimbali Lakes and Golf Estate development on the
Tongaat River, Simbithi Eco-Estate, Ballito Business Park, Seaward Estate Phases I and II,
Dunkirk Estate, Sheffield Manor, Brettonwood and Zululami Estate.

The dominant land-use outside of the urban areas of the KwaDukuza Municipality is sugar
cane plantations interspersed along the coast and in some inland areas with forestry
plantations. Land taken up by other forms of agriculture is limited. The primary rural landform
is agriculture with farmhouses, compounds and smaller rural settlements dispersed
throughout the area. The only major traditional settlement within the area is located in the
northwest portion of the Municipal Area.

The urban landscape in the KwaDukuza areas is diverse, and the area is home to major
formal and informal residential areas. The southern portions of the coastline are formally
developed and include areas such as Ballito and Salt Rock. Developments in these areas
are generally focused on the middle to high- income (up market) holidaymakers. The
coastline to the north of Salt Rock is relatively underdeveloped with only smaller coastal
settlements such as Tinley Manor Beach, Blythedale Beach and Zinkwazi located in this
coastal strip. The KwaDukuza Municipality is one of very few municipalities that have such
stark economic differences in the area.

3.2 KwaDukuza Institutional Arrangements

Municipalities are faced with a very challenging task, that is, of ensuring that they implement
the developmental mandate that they have been tasked with. To implement the objectives of
the local government as they are clearly spelt out in the White Paper on Local Government,
requires a very strong organisation with dynamic and charismatic leadership that can be
always be able to provide clear and right direction for the success of the organisation as well
as to help the organisation to achieve what it exists for. KwaDukuza Municipality has been
able to structure the organisation in a manner that helps it in addressing the challenges that it
faced with. However there are still many vacant positions that cannot be filled for now due to
financial constraints.

The Acting Municipal Manager, Mr. Nico Maree, heads the administrative structure of
KwaDukuza Municipality and is assisted by five Heads of Departments (Executive Directors).
Depending on each department, each is further divided in a particular number of sub
directorates headed by Directors. The KwaDukuza Municipal administrative structure is
aligned into the IDP and it is through this structure that KwaDukuza aims at realising its
Vision 2010.

The Following diagram is meant to paint a clear picture as to how KwaDukuza is structured

The above KwaDukuza Municipal Administrative Structure is in line with the functional
requirements of the IDP. The structure is aligned to the KwaDukuza IDP, and the priority
issues identified in the IDP. The KwaDukuza Municipality appointed its Municipal Manager in
terms of Section 82 of the Municipal Structures Act (as amended). All Executive Directors
were appointed in terms of Sections 56 and 57 of the Municipal Systems Act. The office of
the Municipal Manager provides the link between the Political and Administration Structures
of the Municipality.

3.3    KwaDukuza Council and its Portfolio Committees

KwaDukuza Municipality has 37 Councillors of which 19 are directly elected ward councillors,
and 18 are proportional representative councillors. In terms of the IDP, the core functions of
KwaDukuza Council is to give effect to Section 25 of the Municipal Systems Act which states
that “Each Municipal Council must adopt a single inclusive and strategic plan for the
development of the municipality which: …aligns the resources and capacity of the
municipality with the implementation of the plan”. Section 36 of the Municipal Systems Act
also commits the Council to, “give effect to its Integrated Development Plan and conduct its
affairs in a manner which is consistent with its Integrated Development Plan”

KwaDukuza Council meets on monthly basis while the EXCO meets twice a month.
Members of the public and media are also encouraged to attend some Council meetings.

KwaDukuza Council‘s Portfolio Committees set policies and guidance towards the
implementation of all KwaDukuza Council delivery. These portfolio committees are structured
as per the national guidelines. Each Portfolio Committee meets once per month. Their core
function is to look at specific issues that relate to each portfolio committee, research those
issues and find all the necessary facts before these issues are discussed by Councillors that
sit in each of the portfolio committees.

These portfolio committees deliberate issues and then make recommendations to EXCO and
the full Council, for the latter to take decisions. The following are the KwaDukuza Council
Portfolio Committees:

   •   Economic Development, Planning and Housing
   •   Amenities and Safety
   •   Local Public Administration and HR
   •   Infrastructure
   •   Finance Portfolio Committee
   •   Youth Affairs

  3.4    Current Reality: Basic Facts and Figures

  This section deals with and revisits the major macro- and micro environmental issues that
  influence the current situation in KwaDukuza during the planning period September 2006 to
  June 2007. In this document, the “STEEP” (Social, Technological, Environmental, Economic
  and Political) model will used to discuss the external environmental influences. An internal
  analysis will highlight the picture of the micro-environmental influences in terms of
  transformation of the Municipality.

  3.5    External Influences
  There are many external influences that shape the environment of KwaDukuza. They are
  varied in nature and are as follows:

  3.5.1. The Social Issues
  KwaDukuza is a district node and is the fastest growing local municipality within the Ilembe
  District. The statistics shown below are official statistics of Census 2001. However, the actual
  population of KwaDukuza is much higher than is illustrated by the Census information.

between the Male (49.5%) and Female (50.5%) gender segments.

       The KwaDukuza youth segment of the population has a large base, and total number of
       people under the age of 19 years accounts for 37.8% of the total population, and the
       percentage of the population that is 34 years or younger comprises 68.4% of the total

       The age group 65+ represents only 6% of the total population. It is interesting to note that the
       Male component in the age group 65+ comprises a very small percentage of the total
       population, i.e. only 1.8%.

    Of the 44862 economically active people, a total number of 31923 earn less than R1600 per

    3.5.2 Technological Issues
    An IT Strategy was produced and is currently being implemented. Linux servers are currently
    used for the financial system, and will be used as platform for the new Munsoft financial
    system and ePerform PMS for KwaDukuza. This ongoing upgrading of the IT system is in
    support of the drive towards eGovernment, and the KwaDukuza GAMAP Pilot Project is an
    integral part of this transformation of the local government of KwaDukuza.

    3.5.3 Environmental Influences
    The fast pace of development in KwaDukuza places unprecedented pressure on the
    Municipality’s environment. The KwaDukuza/Ilembe Coastal Working Group has already
    been formed and is functioning well and KwaDukuza Municipality participates in this

    Three municipal launch sites were approved for KwaDukuza, namely in Zinkwazi, Blythedale
    Beach and Ballito. Thorough EIA’s were prepared for each of these launches sites, and
    together with the formulation of a Beach Recreational Assessment Plan, formed the
    motivation for approval of the three launch sites.

    Close working relationships have been established with colleagues at the Department of
    Water Affairs and Forestry, and the Provincial and National Departments of Agriculture and
    Environmental Affairs.

    The Municipality is currently in the process of preparing its Strategic Environmental
    Assessment (SEA), which will serve as one of the guides to the development of the
    Municipality in the future. The coastal strip requires the greatest attention, as the

3.5.4 Economic Influences
According to the KwaZulu-Natal Economic Review published by the Provincial Department of
Economic Development and Tourism, the economy of KwaZulu-Natal is looking better than it
has in years. A number of influences have also boosted the investor confidence to the
Province of KwaZulu Natal.

The province had an annual growth rate of 4.3% from 1995 to 2000. The structure of the
provincial economy differs from the structure of the national economy in that it has a much
larger manufacturing sector and a smaller mining sector than that of the national economy.
The production base characteristic of the provincial economy is large in the secondary
industry sectors. Growth rates in excess of the national average have been driven by high
growth in the services sector, in particular, financial, business services, transport, and
communication. In the manufacturing sector, growth has been driven by the paper and paper
products industry, ferro-alloys (aluminium) and petroleum chemicals.

The agricultural sector is a major contributor to the economy of KwaDukuza, with sugar cane
and timber to a smaller degree being the two primary agricultural activities in the area. The
tourism industry plays a significant role in the economy of KwaDukuza and has room for
growth. The property market is also a major hive of activity, with major developments in the

The Gijima Report prepared by the Department of Economic Development regarding the
economic analysis of the Ilembe economy draws on many of the opportunities and areas for
capitalisation within the KwaDukuza Municipality and must be taken into serious account
when preparing its Local Economic Development Plan.

The KwaDukuza Municipality is currently preparing its Local Economic Development (LED)
Plan, which will direct the Municipality to the areas that should be focussed on by identifying
the viable economic opportunities in the area.

3.5.5 Political Influences
    The political environment of KwaDukuza is very stable. The only threat that is always of
    concern is the taxi violence.
    The Local Government Elections will result in the change of the Municipal Council’s

Internal Environmental Analysis
Key transformation indicators include the following:
   Amalgamation of structures, personnel and systems {97% complete}.
   Budget reform and linkages with IDP.
   Financial viability in the face of legacy of huge debt and poor debt recovery.
   Implementation of PMS – phase 1 {90% complete}. Currently busy with cascading PMS
   to rest of organisation.
   Community participation (IDP process, Izimbizo, ward committees etc).
   Extension of services to poor household {equitable shares, low-cost housing
   development, [water, sanitation – through participative governance] road maintenance}.
   Maintenance/sustaining service delivery in “developed areas”.
   Investor friendly policies and service = a boom in estate development, elite residential
   development and commercial centres (indicator: over R 400m worth of building plan
   applications between July 02 and June 03; resulting in 100’s of new jobs created}.

3.5.6 Investment Opportunities
Investment opportunities in the main economic sectors prevalent in KwaDukuza range from
the tourism sector, general and light industry, communications and IT, transport and
specifically agriculture in the form of sub-tropical fruits, vegetables, sugar cane and flowers.
Holiday letting and exclusive elite residential, eco- and golf estate - property development is
one of the high prized unique selling propositions of the area. Concomitant with further
development of industry and tourism and upmarket residential and estate development,
prospects for commercial investment look promising.

Major developments include the King Shaka Cultural and Tourism Heritage Trail as part of
the Gateway to the Zulu Kingdom programme spearheaded by the KwaZulu-Natal Tourism
Authorities; the Zimbali Golf and Leisure Estate extension; The Zimbali Lakes and Golf
Estate development on the Tongaat River, Simbithi Eco-Estate, Ballito Business Park;
Seaward Estate Phases I and II, Dunkirk Estate, Nkwazi Ridge Estate, Brettonwood and
Zululami Estates. A number of locally based economic initiatives include three business
hives; and an integrated and affordable rural and urban human settlement programme
coupled with a slum-clearance programme.

A famous son of the North Coast and South Africa, Chief Albert Luthuli, first African to
receive the Nobel Peace Prize, lived and died in Groutville/KwaDukuza. The Chief Albert
Luthuli Museum has been completed and tourists and local people have started to make
some visits to this museum.

3.5.7 Alignment Issues
A number of alignment issues have been identified, which require serious planning and
engagement. These include the following:

   Alignment between Kwadukuza, Ilembe and eThekwini Municipalities regarding the
   proposed developments along the Tongati River.
   Tourism routes to be aligned with that of eThekwini and uThungulu Municipalities as well
   as being in line with the Provincial Tourism Strategy.
   KwaDukuza to work with Ilembe to develop the local and district municipality as a
   competitive and attractive investment destination in light of the strategic location of the
   area in relation to the ports of Durban and Richards Bay, the Dube Trade Port, and the
   future King Shaka Airport.
   KwaDukuza Spatial Development Framework (SDF) must be aligned with Ilembe, and
   eThekwini Municipalities SDF.
   KwaDukuza should align with Ilembe regarding the plans for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.
   Environmental plans to also be developed with Ilembe.
   Sector plans e.g. disaster management plans must be aligned with Ilembe to ensure a
   clear designation of roles and responsibilities of district and local municipalities.
   KwaDukuza to work together with Ilembe regarding the proposals submitted to Gijima for
   funding. In this way there is more co-ordination and the proposals are more sound and

                                     Kw Dukuza IDP Review (2006/11)
Municipality has put these development challenges inside one pot with an aim of addressing
them holistically. These development challenges hold a key for KwaDukuza Municipality to
realise its Vision 2010. The current programmes and projects of KwaDukuza Municipality are
aimed at addressing these challenges. Therefore it is important to state that the programmes
and projects that KwaDukuza Municipality is engaged in are not in any way incidental but
they are well planned with an aim of realizing KwaDukuza Vision 2010. It must be noted that
these challenges are complex and are developmental, institutional and management in
nature. These critical challenges are to:

4.3.1   Provide basic services
The municipal area is characterised by areas where major service backlogs exist. This is in
comparison with areas where the full range of services exists. In KwaDukuza it is easy for a
person to distinguish between the first and the second economy. It is one of the challenges
that KwaDukuza is facing that while property development is promoted along the coast of
KwaDukuza, it must be ensured that basic services is adequately provided for the poor
communities. This makes it important for the Municipality to forge good working relationships
with sector departments and all stakeholders so that they will be able to contribute in as far
as the provision of basic services to poor communities. One of the proposals that the
municipality has worked ensures that agreements entered into with property developers
along our coast include a clause on social responsibilities. This will ensure that while the
upmarket development is going on, the poor communities are also getting something on the
other hand.

4.3.2   Improve service delivery
Improving the level of service delivery is one of the critical challenges that require serious
attention. A proper strategy and programme must be developed in order for the KwaDukuza
Municipality to address this challenge. This challenge will be addressed together with
challenge on ensuring strict credit control.

4.3.3   Develop our people
The people of KwaDukuza are the Municipality’s greatest asset. Therefore, programmes
have been identified that will address this challenge. The Municipality is working with various
SETA’s and it is important to strengthen these relationships for all the people to benefit.
People development is meaningless if it does not address economic development. That is
why KwaDukuza Municipality is in the process of reviewing its Local Economic Development
Strategy. The strategy is aimed at building the economy of KwaDukuza and empowering
people in the process.

4.3.4   Address poverty and unemployment
At the centre of KwaDukuza development challenges is the need to create employment
opportunities and the need to strengthen the economic base of the area. As it was mentioned
earlier on that development that is taking place within KwaDukuza is not incidental, these
development initiatives are aimed at creating employment opportunities for community of
KwaDukuza. Most of these employment opportunities that are created are temporal, but they
are playing a very important role in a fight against poverty and unemployment.

4.3.5   Manage the health environment and the HIV/Aids pandemic
Council is faced with the major challenge of responding to the issue of HIV/AIDS and AIDS-
related issues, such as Aids-orphans. To this regard the Council has approved a number of
projects that are aimed at providing care for AIDS orphans. The Belgian government has

                                          - 27 -
                             Kw Dukuza IDP Review (2006/11)
also funded an AIDS Orphanage Project. This Orphanage will be incorporated within the
Groutville Priority 2 Housing Project.

4.3.6    Ensure strict credit control
It has been mentioned that KwaDukuza has to deal with huge unemployment and poverty.
With this scenario it becomes critical for council to realise what the affordability levels for
payment of services are and then to adopt appropriate credit control policies.

4.3.7 Improve relationships
It is a legal imperative for the municipality to act in a more developmental way, and to provide
an enabling environment for all its stakeholders to engage in a meaningful partnership with
the council to ensure that the needs are met.

4.3.8   Ensure a safe and secure environment
If the area is to meet its vision, the issues of crime, traffic-related offences, fire and
emergency services, disaster management and prevention and households subject to flood
risks need to be addressed.

4.4 Community needs

In 2001 KwaDukuza Municipality conducted a needs assessment exercise in all its 19 wards.
During this exercise, a number of needs were identified throughout the wards of KwaDukuza.
The identified needs were to then form the basis for KwaDukuza Developmental Agenda.
The period between 2002 and 2005 has seen the implementation of some of the identified
needs. Obviously the financial constraints have prevented the municipality from addressing
all the identified needs.

Every year since the adoption of the IDP, these community needs were revisited. This
occurred during the process of the annual review of the IDP, as required by legislation. On
the 20th of October 2005 during an IDP Representative Forum/Ward Committee meeting, the
ward representatives were afforded a chance to present the existing projects, services and
infrastructure in their respective wards. From these presentations it was clear that much has
been done since needs assessment was initially undertaken but the presentations also
showed that there is still much to be done. The exercise was also very important since it was
able to confirm that development must be biased toward s the poorest of the poor. Looking at
the pressing needs from the affluent areas, that these areas will be mostly satisfied with
maintenance of the existing infrastructure than any other thing. On the 30 November 2005,
these Ward Representatives again were given an opportunity to phase and prioritise they
needs for the next five years. The RF meetings that are still to be held will provide further
opportunity for these representatives to engage in the IDP process.

The pressing needs from all wards can be summarized as follows:

        Re-gravelling of roads
   Most of the Wards, especially those that have gravel roads, are very much concerned
   about the state of the gravel roads. According to the representatives from these Wards,
   the Municipality must gravel and resurfaced these roads on regular basis, especially
   during the summer season.

                                          - 28 -
                             Kw Dukuza IDP Review (2006/11)
   Electricity is also a concern from those wards that are not serviced by the Municipality,
   but by ESKOM. These communities feel that the Municipality must meet with ESKOM so
   that a programme to install electricity in these areas can be developed.

      Refuse Removal
   The issue of refuse removal was raised especially by ward representatives wherein there
   are new townships. They asked that a programme to remove waste and refuse in these
   areas, be developed during the 2005/6 Financial Year.

   The meeting of 18 November 2004 also raised the issue of streetlights as the pressing
   needs in most wards. The meeting resolved that in order to fight crime in most areas,
   street lighting, should be addressed.

   The issue of lack of portable water was raised by the representatives from W ard 1. They
   feel that a programme to provide water in this area must be developed by the W ater

   The lack of space for graveyards was also raised as a very pressing issue.

   Areas in which the issue of land restitution and redistribution have not yet resolved,
   asked the Municipality to work together with the Department of Land Affairs.

      Poverty Alleviation / LED Projects
   A significant number of the RF members requested the need for projects such as poultry
   and sewing projects in their areas.

Some of the pressing needs were identified as follows:
   Housing                                              Storm Water
   Schools                                              Road Humps

4.5 Strategies and Programmes

Six strategies have been formulated to
ensure integrated and sustainable
development within the Municipality. In
undertaking the strategy formulation
process the Municipality has moved
towards an outcomes based approach.
These strategies cover the entire
spectrum of development needs and
opportunities in the Municipality. The
integration of the strategies and the
budgets are also being pursued during
this planning cycle, which seeks to
guide the development of KwaDukuza
over the next five years. Each strategy
has a number of programmes and
related projects attached to it, which on
completion      translates    into    the
achievement of the strategy goal.

Strategy One:         Effective Infrastructure

OBJECTIVE: This strategy is focussed on the improved maintenance and the provision of
new infrastructural services within the Municipality. This is geared to ensure spatial
integration of the Municipality and its transportation system. The strategy aims at improved
service delivery and ensuring a basic standard of living for all.

Strategy Two:         Integrated Human Settlements

OBJECTIVE: This strategy aims at the provision of human settlements that serve people ina
way that is different from simply providing housing. It is premised on the understanding that
people deserve to live in an environment suitable for community development and the
development of children, which also provides services and amenities to enhance the quality
of life. People need to understand the responsibilities that come part and parcel of living in
formal housing and therefore, capacity building is key.

Strategy Three:       Economic Development & Job Creation

OBJECTIVE: The strategy aims to establish economic growth and development in all
economic sectors with a particular focus on agriculture, tourism and trade and industry
(SMME), whilst contributing to poverty alleviation in the area. The Municipality will aim at
ensuring the control and management of formal and informal business encouraging income
growth and employment generation.

Strategy Four:        Integrated Development

OBJECTIVE: The strategy focuses on the co-ordination of the spatial and service delivery
component to improve the management of Municipal responsibilities. The strengthening of
the nodes of the Municipality while ensuring the equitable development of the rural areas is
of utmost importance. Environmental management and spatial integration of development
are further components of the strategy to ensure integration and optimum organisational

Strategy Five:                  People Empowerment

OBJECTIVE:       The focus of this strategy is social development and community
empowerment, which deals with issues ranging from health care to education and the
provision of community facilities e.g. disaster management. The strategy aims at uplifting the
community and raising awareness around gender, health care, safety and security thereby
ensuring a strong, participatory and inclusive community.

Strategy Six: Good Governance

OBJECTIVE: This strategy encapsulates the Municipality’s commitment to the provision of
the highest quality of service to its constituents and to ensure that all the strategies and
objectives are adhered to, resulting in a productive and sustainable Municipality. This
strategy aims at establishing a network of Municipal service delivery throughout the
Municipal area.

The approach utilised here is that of outcomes-based planning. That is in order for each
strategy to be achieved, a number of actions need to be completed. In the case of the IDP
this means the fulfilment of a number of programmes and their associated projects. The table
below highlights the programmes identified for each strategy. The projects are numerous and
can be found in the resource allocation tables in latter sections of this document.

                          Chapter 5: SECTOR PLANS

This section serves to provide a short summary of the status of the sector plans for the
Municipality. In the final version of this report, more detail will be provided wherever possible.


The KwaDukuza Municipality has made progress regarding the following sector plans.


The Spatial Development Framework (SDF) has been prepared in the past; however, this
plan has not been updated for some time. Plans are now in place to complete the work on
the SDF for the final submission of the IDP Review in June 2006. Funding has been
approved for the commencement of the project and a consultant needs to be appointed to
assist the Municipality in formulating the SDF.


The Land Use Management Framework will be undertaken once the SDF is completed, as
the latter informs the former. Ilembe Municipality has formulated a Land Use Management
Framework (LUMF), which should serve as a guiding document for the Municipality’s LUMS.


The Municipality has formulated a Local Economic Development strategy in the past.
However, this strategy requires review and as such, the Municipality has applied to the
Gijima Programme for funding, which has been approved. Urban-Econ: Development
Economists has been appointed for the preparation of this plan. The preparation of this
sector plan is currently underway.


This sector plan is currently underway, which is being prepared by SiVEST Selatile, Moloi
Consultants. This project is currently in the Situational Analysis Phase, which reflects the
information that is collated about the area.


The KwaDukuza Municipality has formulated the above strategy in response to the need for
housing as well as the additional factors that contribute to the quality of life that people have.
This strategy was formulated ahead of its time, as it is only now that the Department of
Housing has prepared guidelines for the preparation of Housing Sector Plans along the same
lines as the KwaDukuza Integrated Human Settlements Strategy. This strategy needs to be
reviewed and updated in terms of the Housing Departments Guidelines.


This plan has been formulated by the KwaDukuza Municipality to prevent, mitigate and
respond to disasters beyond the normal capacity of the Municipality. It promotes a co-

ordinated and integrated multi disciplinary approach to disaster management. As such, the
municipality is committed to handling local disasters. Some time needs to be given to update
this plan and ensure that it is still sound.


This forms part of the broader LED Strategy, which focuses on poverty alleviation in
KwaDukuza. The Municipality has teamed up with the KZN Department of Agriculture and
Environmental Affairs in order to ensure that these initiatives are as success. These projects
include community gardens, poultry projects etc. This strategy must be updated since the
LED Plan in being updated and reviewed.


This strategy is aimed at reducing the level of risk of residents and visitors by
creating/promoting a safe and secure environment and to enhance the capacity of the
community to reduce the personal risk to which they are exposed on a daily basis. This plan
is directed at both the developed and traditional areas in KwaDukuza. This strategy has been
formulated a few years ago and requires updating.


This strategy is geared at increasing the number of households that have access to primary
health care services, to increase the HIV/AIDS awareness amongst the people of
KwaDukuza, and to co-ordinate all HIV/AIDS activity within the municipal boundary. This
comes out of the fact that the population of KwaDukuza have poor access to primary health
care services and a high HIV/AIDS prevalence rate. This strategy also requires updating and


This strategy is based on the fact that there is a prevalence of poor access to basic
household services; and poor or bad image of the town. This strategy is therefore aimed at
developing KwaDukuza as one of the cleanest towns in the country and to ensure that all
households receive basic services. Backlogs still exist despite the progress being made. The
strategy also seeks to promote entrepreneurship, community empowerment and poverty


This strategy serves to address the problems of low usage of libraries and the lack of
recreational facilities. It hopes to achieve the following:

   70% of the population to have access to library services; and
   10 sport and recreational facilities to be built in 5 years.


This strategy is aimed at reducing the impact of HIV/AIDS on the community through:

   Education, Awareness, Openness and Prevention
   Treatment and Care for people living with HIV/AIDS
   Care for Orphans
   Organisational Arrangements

The strategy is targeting the increasing of the IT Systems uptime from approximately 80% to
at least 95%, which is the international benchmark. This needs to be assessed and reviewed.


The Performance Management System (PMS) is being prepared by Price Waterhouse
Coopers and is currently being done on an organisational level. This further needs to be
cascaded to a suitable level. The PMS for the Municipal Strategies, Programmes and
Projects also needs to be developed and implemented. The implementation of the PMS
needs to be increased as well.


An electricity plan has just been completed by the Municipality, which will guide the provision
and maintenance of electricity in the KwaDukuza Municipal area.


The following sector plans have been identified as important for the Municipality and will be
undertaken in future:

a)     Integrated Water Management Plan
b)     Water Services and Sanitation Plan
c)     Municipal Infrastructure Plan
d)     Transport & Roads Plan
e)     Cemetery & Crematoria
f)     Land Reform Plan
g)     Tourism Plan
h)     Agriculture Plan
i)     Geographical Information Systems
j)     Education Plan.

KwaDukuza Municipality has implemented a new approach to the preparation of the IDP of
which the following are the main characteristics:

i) The formulation of outcomes based strategies. All the development needs and
opportunities in the municipal area, not only the municipal functions, have been identified
during the consultation process. These needs and opportunities are expressed in the form of
outcomes based strategies, which will jointly lead to the comprehensive and integrated
development of the municipal area. The strategies do not at this stage necessarily align
100% with the functions of the line departments of the municipality.

ii) The strategies are divided into programmes and projects that together lead to addressing
the integrated development of the municipal area.

iii) The budget of the municipality is aligned to the IDP strategies, programmes and projects.
The systems for achieving the full integration of the IDP planning and budgetary process
have not yet been perfected. This will be pursued further in the next IDP Planning and
Budgetary cycle of 2007/12.

The following table indicates the alignment of the five-year 2006/11 budget to the IDP
strategies, programmes and projects.

Following the budget (resource allocation) table is a strategic assessment of the resources
allocations and a table outlining the objectives and key performance indicators of the
strategies and programmes.

                                   Kw Dukuza IDP Review (2006/11)

KwaDukuza is in the process of reviewing the PMS in order to align the IDP Strategies and
programmes to that of the PMS. The review of the PMS is consistent with the approach
followed during the 1st phase of development and implementation. The approach is aimed at
focusing all senior managers on vision achievement, and revision of the organisational
balanced scorecard. Strategic objectives will then be cascaded into departmental business

In the process of reviewing the departmental business plans, the various performance
targets will be allocated to members of the management team. These allocated
responsibilities will then be incorporated into the individual performance plans that will be
attached as an annexure to the performance agreements of section 57 employees. The
process is depicted in the diagram here below.
                          Scorecards and Performance Measures

             Responsibility  Target dates  Actions  Performance Targets

This approach facilitates the cascading of the PMS to the rest of the staff of the organisation.
Included in this process is the compilation of job descriptions for all staff in all departments.
The performance plans will be the same format as those compiled for the section 57
employees and will contain performance measures as reflected in the diagram below.

The process of cascading the PMS to the rest of the organisation will involve all staff, and
focus groups will be facilitated in 26 sessions. All relevant documentation such as the
organisational structure, workplace skills plan and existing job descriptions will be revisited.

A complete set of performance plans for each department will be supplied to the
Municipality, and appropriate computerised software programme to manage the process has
been acquired.

The information used for the performance measurement is to be audited and there must
therefore be a clear audit trail and lines of accountability for information management.
The revised KwaDukuza PMS will therefore comprise of the following:

•   A review of the current PMS system
•   Cascading the system throughout the Municipality hierarchy
•   Automating the manual system of managing performance by using an appropriate
    computer software programme.

              Chapter 8: CONCLUSION AND SUMMARY

8.1 Conclusion & Summary

KwaDukuza 2006/011 Integrated Development Plan is a comprehensive yet strategic plan
that is based and also driven by current realities. The projects identified and contained in this
document are the result of a participative, integrated development planning process that saw
the community representatives revisiting, confirming and re-affirming the community needs
that were identified during a community needs assessment exercise that was conducted
during the year 2000. Also of importance during the 2006/11 IDP Review process, was the
interaction with the sector departments and other stakeholders. What is left now is to ensure
that this interaction produces some results. But in a nutshell, KwaDukuza Municipality is
satisfied that the 2006/11 IDP Revision process was a participative and interactive affair and
it is a true reflection of the needs of KwaDukuza Community.

Like the rest of South Africa, KwaDukuza is characterised by two economies. The first
economy is found along the coastal belt of KwaDukuza, that is, from Port Zimbali in the
South to Zinkwazi River in the north. The second economy is found in the remaining part of
KwaDukuza Municipal area of jurisdiction. During the 2006/07 Financial Year, KwaDukuza
will develop a strategy that will be ensuring that the boom of property development of the
coastal belt does benefit the poverty stricken communities. The agreements that will be
entered into with property developers will have to contain the Social Responsibility part as a
condition. Although some people do benefit in terms of employment opportunities, but it is it
will be in the interest of the municipality if the developers can also contribute to community
development initiatives.

It is also important to highlight the fact that our integrated development strategies are being
shaped up to take KwaDukuza to 2011. KwaDukuza IDP 2006/07 continues to address the
critical development challenges that face the area of KwaDukuza. The most important
aspect of this IDP is that the Council of KwaDukuza was once again able to compile its
2006/07 Budget, which is linked and integrated with the IDP 2006/07 priorities. At the
beginning of the 2006/7 financial year, the Municipal Manager, the Chief Financial Officer
and the IDP Manager will have to develop mechanisms by which the implementation of both
the IDP and the Budget will be monitored. This will be done through comparing spending
against the Integrated Development Plan priorities for 2006/07.

The KwaDukuza Municipality will continue to forge working relationships with sector
departments and other strategic role players and stakeholders in order to achieve the
desired outcomes.

8.2    Fulfilling the Requirements for a Credible IDP

The table below draws on the Framework Guide for Credible IDPs that has been formulated
to provide a standardised reference point for municipalities with respect to key service
delivery, governance and management obligations. The framework, and so the table,
outlines seven focus areas, which if appropriately addressed will culminate in a credible IDP.
As such, the table below provides a summary of how and where these issues have been

           FOCUS AREAS                              KWADUKUZA IDP REVIEW 2006/11
Service Delivery                    The Municipality has developed a strategy within the IDP, which is
                                    focussed on the provision of effective infrastructure. This strategy
                                    encompasses a number of programmes and related projects. However,
                                    there is acknowledgement that there are a number of sector plans that
                                    need to be prepared. The Electricity Plan is the only infrastructural plan
                                    that has been prepared.

Institutional Arrangements          The aspects mentioned under this focus area are included in Strategy
                                    6: Good Governance. There is acknowledgement that there is a need
                                    to develop the sector plans, which will occur in the future. The
                                    Performance Management System has been implemented but requires
                                    cascading down the various human resource levels.

Economic Development                The Municipality is in the process of developing its local economic
                                    development plan, which will take account of the NSDP and PGDS.
                                    Economic Development is addressed in Strategy 3: Economic
                                    Development and Job Creation. The strategy does focus on bridging
                                                             st     nd
                                    the gap between the 1 and 2 economies. However, it is believed
                                    that this merging will emerge as a result of the implementation of the
                                    infrastructural, planning and economic development programmes and
                                    projects. The District and the Local Municipality are committed to
                                    working together to ensure that there is alignment of planning at all
                                    levels. It has been highlighted that appropriate communication is the

Financial Management & Corporate    The financial management of the municipality has been undertaken in
Governance                          compliance with the MFMA and the MSA. However, in the past the
                                    Municipality did not prepare a five-year financial plan. This IDP Review
                                    is the first time that this is being done. As such, it is a new concept to
                                    the HoDs and this process requires refining over time in order to make
                                    this system work properly.

Governance                          Public participation is encouraged in all decision-making where it is
                                    required. Top-down decision-making is not executed.
                                    The Ward Committees in the Municipality are functional and are well
                                    represented at the IDP meetings, where their inputs are used in the
                                    planning and budgeting processes.
                                    The Municipality’s Corporate Services Directorate is working on
                                    developing a website for public relations, e-commerce and becoming
                                    e-Government enabled. The Municipality also has a strong link with the
                                    public and the stakeholders.

Intergovernmental Relations         At present the District Municipality and the Local Municipalities are
                                    working towards establishing the relevant structures for appropriate
                                    intergovernmental relations.

Spatial Development Framework       The Municipality is in the process of formulating its Spatial
                                    Development Framework. The mentioned areas for consideration will
                                    be analysed in the process.

Beyond these areas/reference points, the Department of Local Government and Traditional
Affairs has established a set of 19 Key Performance Areas (KPAs) / Focus Areas, which
need to be focussed on in the next IDP Review in order to prepare a credible IDP. The
detailed comments of the Department, is listed in a document received from them. However,
it is imperative to note these KPAs in this document as a stepping-stone to achieving a
credible IDP. The 19 KPAs are as follows:
