Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan

abling the 2013-2014 budget in Parliament on Wednesday, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan allocated local government, community amenities and housing R132 billion to enhance service delivery. A further R85 billion will be transferred to municipalities as equitable share, rising to R101 billion in the 2015-2016 financial year. Gordhan said urban areas, which offered many work opportunities, made a vital contribution to the national economy. “Census 2011 found that 62% of South Africans live in urban areas, and that the population of some municipalities grew by over 50% between 2001 and 2011. The challenge is highly inefficient, segregated and exclusionary divides between town and township imposed costs, not only on the economy and the fiscus but also on families and communities. The Minister said municipal infrastructure grants would also go hand in hand with integrated planning of

new developments to make strides in overcoming spatial inequalities. Funding for improving human settlements has increased from R26.2 billion to R30.5 billion over the next three years, while the Municipal Infrastructure Support Agency of the Dept of Cooperative Governance will get R820 million to provide technical assistance to rural and low-capacity municipalities. Gordhan said a further R4.3 billion had been allocated to a new grant to be administered by the Department of Water Affairs for the provision of water treatment, distribution, demand management and support for rural municipalities. Gordhan announced that the process of establishing a Chief Procurement Office in the Treasury and appointment of the Chief Procurement Officer would be announced in due course. “Consequently, there are hundreds of thousands of transactions from a multitude of centres. There is very little visibility of all these transactions. While our ablest civil servants have had difficulty in opti-

mising procurement, it has yielded rich pickings for those who seek to exploit it.” The Minister added that the National Treasury was scrutinising 76 business entities with contracts totalling R8.4 billion that he believed had infringed the procurement rules. “SARS is auditing over 300 businesses and scrutinising 700 entities, over contracts with a combined value of more than R10 billion. So far, 216 cases have been finalised, resulting in assessments amounting to over R480 million being raised. The Financial Intelligence Centre has referred over R6.5 billion for investigation linked to corrupt activities,” the Minister said. He added that SARS is also targeting recipients of public finances who were not up to date with their taxes. “By working closely with Treasury and interfacing with the government payment system, SARS has identified companies that have received payments but have not declared their full income. They are being audited and others will follow,” the Minister warned.

Deceased repatriation scheme Jairos Saunyama

A

Zimbabwean man, Peter Magaso has opened a death records centre that captures the data of Zimbabweans who die in South Africa. The information enables relatives to easily identify the bodies if they suspect that their relative has died. Magaso said the platform enables people back home to find the names of relatives on the Internet if they suspect they have died. “I work with South African hospitals, clinics and mortuaries to help with names of deceased people. Currently, I focus on Gauteng, but as word spreads more hospitals in other provinces will look for me with names of the deceased.”

Seminar on ombudsman appointment

3

The appointment of a city ombudsman is to help address complaints from residents Staff Reporter news@inner-city-gazette.co.za

H

undreds of residents recently attended a public participation exercise at the Metro Centre in Braamfontein, which referred to the appointment of an ombudsman for the city of Joburg. Legal practitioners Mbulelo Ruda (pictured above) and Nomsa Mgida took the participants through the document detailing the functions of an ombudsman. Programme director Clr Solomon Mogase commended residents for taking part in the event. “This is indicative of the seriousness with which you view this process and your eagerness to help us chart the future. This municipality is yours because it’s all about you,” said he said. The appointment of an ombudsman is intended to address residents and customers’ complaints. Through the GDS 2040, the city seeks to ensure that customers and residents feel acknowledged through a refined, shared and comprehensive customercare approach that puts them first, Clr Mogase said. “The move to appoint

an ombudsman followed an increasing number of aggrieved residents who approached other statutory institutions, including the Public Protector, the National Consumer Commissioner and the media, to help solve their problems. The city consulted with other metros where ombudsman offices had been established to deal with such complaints.” Documents detailing the processes to be followed when appointing an ombudsman were distributed to members of the audience at the stakeholder meeting. Many of those who attended said they were in favour of the appointment of the ombudsman. According to the document, the ombudsman will be appointed by the council upon receiving a recommendation from Mayor Parks Tau. The ombudsman will be appointed on a non-renewable five-year fixed-term, and will be based at the Metro Centre. He or she will either be a judge, magistrate or anyone who has been admitted as an advocate or attorney. Ruda said the processes should be over by May, and finalised in June. “This process gives the public a platform to air their views,” he added.

Protesters display their opposition to Eskom’s price hike proposal.

Regulator rejects Eskom’s hike bid Staff Reporter news@inner-city-gazette.co.za

T

he National Energy Regulator, Nersa has announced that it rejected Eskom’s proposed 16% annual tariff hike for electricity. Nersa chairperson Cecilia Khuzwayo said the decision is based on facts. “The third multi-year price determination will be 8% over five years.” Eskom had applied for a 16% increase in electricity prices in each of the next five years. This was more than double the current price, taking it from 61 cents per kWh in 2012/13, to 128 cents per kWh in 2017/18. The current multi-price determination ends on March 31 2013. Both determinations spanned three years. Khuzwayo said it was important to note that the third multi-year price determination application was made

with the backdrop of “continuing global economic recession.” The parastatal previously said it needed the increase to cover costs of supplying electricity needed to power South Africa and invest in infrastructure. The current multi-price determination, MYPD 2, ends on March 31, 2013. Both MYPD1 and MYPD2 had spanned a period of three years. Khuzwayo said a detailed analysis was done on Eskom’s application. “Eskom must ensure that alternative tariffs, other than time-of-use tariffs are available to municipalities with a predominantly residential load mix.” Khuzwayo said it was important to note that the MYPD3 application was made with the backdrop of ‘continuing global economic recession’. Khuzwayo said Nersa had followed due processes and held public discussions on the tariffs. “Approximately

200 written stakeholder comments were received. A total of 162 oral representations were made during public hearings conducted in nine provinces. Our challenge has been and still remains regulating the energy sector in the manner that balances the interests of energy producers on one hand and consumers on the other hand.” The parastatal previously said it needs the increase to cover costs of supplying the electricity needed to power South Africa and invest in infrastructure. The proposed increase was met with criticism from political parties, unions, civil society, businesses, and South Africans in general. Thembani Buluka, chairperson of a Nersa electricity subcommittee, said it had not spoken to Eskom about its decision. “The increase we have given is sufficient for Eskom. Eskom may appeal against Nersa’s decision.”

Leader / Opinion

Comment Many people have expressed sadness that February, a month that is supposed to be associated with love, has been embroiled in chilling incidents of murder, rape and untold human rights abuses. It is rather strange for all these things to have happened in the month of love. If these things were bound to happen anyway, through destiny, why have the worst of them happened specifically in the month when all people are supposed to show love to each other? There were monsters lurking in the shadows, ready to pounce and declare February the ‘month of agony’. One wonders whether the rapists and murderers actually planned to execute their evil deeds in February, to ‘prove a point’, that they wield the power to change human perceptions at will. Psychologists and criminologists have suggested that rape is not about sexual satisfaction, but about instilling fear and dominance of the bully’s power. Sadists derive pleasure from having other people suffer, especially those who cannot defend themselves. This is the essence of the motive that drives rapists, many of whom are prone to extend their deeds to murder, to satisfy their sadist ego, or to conceal evidence of the crime, or both. When early lawmakers introduced the death penalty, they had considered retribution for this despicable kind of human behaviour. It seems they could not find a different or better way to deal with such callous killers, who always seek an opportunity to cause suffering. Unfortunately the death penalty was hijacked by politicians, who used it to eliminate their opponents, which is why many sober governments have abolished it. The other argument was that killing offenders sends out the wrong message; that killing wrongdoers is right, which could be extended to communities to promote mob justice. Food for thought.

Wrong message in court The ANC Women’s League respects the decision of the court to grant Oscar Pistorius bail. We remain vigilant in our demand for justice in the murder case of Reeva Steenkamp and are satisfied that the charges remain a Schedule 6 offence carrying a possible life sentence if found guilty. What is distressing was the reaction of some men in court who jumped up and celebrated the granting of bail as if they had won a trophy, forgetting that an innocent

woman has lost her life. One of those was Kenny Kunene who has previously shown lack of respect for women by eating sushi off their naked bodies, treating women as nothing more than crockery. This is not the message men of this country, especially men with a degree of influence, should be sending to our youth. More so considering the high levels of gender based violence that plague the country. Troy Martens ANC Women’s League

Autumn in November

Addis Ababa - Great Lakes region leaders have signed a new peace deal aimed at stabilising wartorn east of the DR Congo. UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon witnessed the signing on Sunday at the African Union’s headquarters in Addis Ababa. DRC President Joseph Kabila, together with leaders from Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Congo, Rwanda, South Africa, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia attended the summit. The deal could lead to the creation of a UN intervention brigade to combat rebel groups. The DRC’s mineral-rich east has been ravaged by numerous armed groups, some of them backed by neighbouring countries. The latest surge in violence in 2012 culminated in the M23 rebels seizing the town of Goma last November. The rebels control the Rutshuru region in North Kivu. Peace talks held in Uganda have made little headway. The UN wants to add a 2 500-strong intervention brigade to face armed groups in the region, adding to the 17 000 MONUSCO troops already there.

Hate pamphlets circulate

Heavy casualties in battle Bamako - Thirteen Chadian soldiers have been killed in northern Mali, the heaviest casualties by Frenchled African troops since the campaign against rebels started last month. Sixty-five rebels were also killed in clashes that began in the Adrar des Ifoghas mountains near the Algerian border, army staff said. Chad deployed 1 800 soldiers in the northern city of Kidal to secure the rebels’ last urban stronghold. On Friday Islamist suicide bombers targeted MNLA Tuareg forces in Tessalit, killing three people. MNLA spokesman Mohamed Ibrahim Ag Asseleh said the two suicide bombers were killed. The Tuaregs, who seek greater autonomy, rebelled against the government and swept across northern Mali in April last year. MNLA and other Tuareg groups were later sidelined by armed groups like the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO), who took over major towns imposed Islamic law. The MUJAO made no comment on the latest attacks. The continuing violence suggests French and African forces may be entangled in a prolonged conflict as they help Mali’s army counter the Islamist rebels.

New PM to form govt

Tunis - President Moncef Marzouki has announced that Interior Minister Ali Larayedh will take over from Hamadi Jebali as new prime minister. Larayedh of the ruling Islamist party Ennahda, has two weeks to form a new government. Jebali, also an Ennahda member, quit last week after the party refused to back his plan for a cabinet of technocrats. Tunisia has been in turmoil since the killing of opposition leader Chokri Belaid on 6 February. It was the first political assassination in Tunisia since the uprising in 2011 and provoked mass protests and resignations from Tunisia’s coalition government. Larayedh’s appointment has ended the tensions within Ennahda and many Tunisians hope it will end political deadlocks. Larayedh said several suspects had been arrested in connection with Belaid’ assassination. The opposition blamed Ennahda for the killing, but the moderate Islamist party denies it. Jebali tried to defuse tensions by announcing he would form a non-partisan, technocratic government. But the proposal failed to win Ennahda’s approval, leading to Jebali’s resignation on Tuesday. Larayedh spent several years in jail and was tortured when autocratic leader Ben Ali was in power.

Nairobi - Police have found leaflets inciting violence being distributed, with less than two weeks to general elections. They have been circulating in Kisumu, home of presidential contender Raila Odinga, and in Mombasa. Following election violence five years ago, the authorities have been trying to crack down on hate speech. Hate leaflets were distributed after the disputed December 2007 elections. Over 1 000 people were killed in six weeks of unrest and 300 000 fled their homes. Eight candidates are standing for president on 4 March, Odinga and his deputy Uhuru Kenyatta are the frontrunners. Kenyatta and his running mate William Ruto, have been charged with crimes against humanity at the ICC over allegations of fuelling violence in the last election. Police chief David Kimaiyo said the leaflets were inciting Luo residents to chase people from the Kikuyu and Kalenjin communities, who support Kenyatta and Ruto, and officers were investigating the origin of the pamphlets. “I must say to all those who want to cause unnecessary fear and panic among members of the public, the long arm of the law will soon catch up with them,” the police chief said.

inception in 2008, much like the FA Cup in England. The tournament has seen many players rise from anonymity in the lower leagues of South African football and capture the imagination of their fans, by defeating fancied sides and making dreams a reality. The Nedbank Cup is also a powerful development tool, allowing young players the chance to experience what is required in the topflight. The ground-breaking structure of the tournament has transformed the state of local football, giving lower league sides increased impetus to succeed. Mpumalanga Black Aces was the first side to benefit from the unique competition, as they soared to the final in its first edition, only to lose against Mamelodi Sundowns in the final. But the stage was set for the minnows of South African football to

prove they could match teams in the top-flight. The following year, Pretoria University made it to the final against Moroka Swallows, with a First Division side yet again taking their opportunity to make an impact in the most lucrative cup competition in South Africa. AmaTuks defeated Kaizer Chiefs, Bloemfontein Celtic and Ajax Cape Town during a remarkable run to the final. Black Leopards was the next lower league side to triumph, defeating Kaizer Chiefs on their way to the final against Orlando Pirates in 2011. The Buccaneers sealed one of their three trophies that season with a 3-1 victory in the final. The trend has continued. Last week upsets were there once more, the most memorable one being the 4-1 drubbing of PSL champions Orlando Pirates by little known Maluti FET College of the Free State.
