FOREWORD MESSAGE FROM THE PUBLISHER We are proud to publish the fourth edition of The Local Government Handbook: South Africa. In compiling and updating the information for this edition we conducted our most extensive municipal survey and research process to date.

The Handbook is the sister-publication of our website – www.municipalities.co.za. Since its launch in May 2012, the website has become the leading online source of consolidated municipal information in South Africa. It contains all the information included in the Handbook as well as more comprehensive information in some areas, such as more extensive financial and demographic information. The website is also updated on a continuous basis. If you are referencing the kind of information that is susceptible to frequent change (contact details, personnel, etc.), it is advisable to check the website to see if it is still current. The website is also completely searchable for any relevant text, place, name, person, etc. We trust that you will find the information useful and that the publication and website adds a valuable source of consolidated and easy-to-access municipal information to the South African landscape.

FOREWORD

You will find a number of new and additional information fields that were not included in previous editions. Most significantly, we have added headline financial information for every municipality in South Africa. This information was gathered from the audited financial statements of each municipality. We have also included the major demographic indicators for each municipality, and have expanded the information regarding main economic sectors and the main towns and cities found in each municipality. As a result, the publication has expanded to almost twice its previous number of pages, while remaining true to its original aim of providing a concise overview of all municipalities in South Africa.

SOURCES METHODOLOGY, SOURCES AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We have taken care to collect, capture and, where possible, cross reference the information contained in this Handbook as accurately as possible. However, it should be recognised that some types of information included in the Handbook change frequently. It is inevitable that some of the information will be incorrect at source and/or become outdated during and after publication. We, therefore, take no responsibility for the accuracy of the information contained in this Handbook. Where appropriate, we reference the original source reports, enabling you to refer to the original if needed. This Handbook is the sister-publication of the website www.municipalities.co.za. In many instances more extensive information is available on the website. The website is also updated on a continuous basis throughout the year. If you notice any errors or omissions, please contact us at info@municipalities.co.za so that we may immediately correct it on the website and also in future editions of the Handbook.

COMPOSITION OF MUNICIPAL COUNCILS The information listed is based on information published by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). The information has been updated to include municipal by-election results up to October 2013 in respect of all metropolitan and local municipalities. With regards to district municipalities, the information is sourced from the latest annual report of the municipality concerned or supplied by the relevant municipality. For more information on the IEC, please refer to www.elections.org.za.

AUDIT OUTCOMES The information regarding audit outcomes is sourced from the Consolidated General Report on the audit outcomes of Local Government 2011-12, published by the Auditor-General South Africa (AGSA). The full report is available from AGSA’s offices or at www.agsa.co.za.

MUNICIPAL SURVEY PROCESS The terminology used is described by AGSA as follows:

The information contained in the municipal Sponsored Profile pages is provided by the municipalities concerned. It is not independently verified.

MUNICIPAL AREA AND MAPS The municipal area information was supplied by the Municipal Demarcation Board. All the source material for the maps was supplied by the GIS/IT department at the Board. For more information on the Municipal Demarcation Board please refer to www.demarcation.org.za.

DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION The information listed is sourced from the Census 2011 Municipal Fact Sheet published by Statistics South Africa (Report No. 03-01-58). The original document can be obtained at www.statssa.gov.za.

THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT HANDBOOK SOUTH AFRICA 2014

Clean audit outcome: The financial statements are free from material misstatements (in other words, a financially unqualified audit opinion) and there are no material findings on reporting on performance objectives or non-compliance with legislation.

SOURCES

Some of the information appearing in this directory is collected via an annual survey that we conduct with all municipalities. While we go to great efforts to gather complete and accurate information, some municipalities are more responsive than others. The information fields that are primarily reliant on survey are those related to municipal contact details and descriptions, political and administrative personnel, as well as LED information. The information is cross-referenced and verified against other sources but, especially personnel information, changes frequently and without notice.

Financially unqualified with findings: The financial statements contain no material misstatements. Unless the Auditor-General expresses a clean audit outcome, findings have been raised on either reporting on predetermined objectives or noncompliance with legislation, or both these aspects. Qualified audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements in specific amounts, or there is insufficient evidence for the Auditor-General to conclude that specific amounts included in the financial statements are not materially misstated. Adverse audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements that are not confined to specific amounts, or the misstatements represent a substantial portion of the financial statements. Disclaimer of audit opinion: The auditee provided insufficient evidence in the form of documentation on which to base an audit opinion. The lack of sufficient evidence is not confined to specific amounts, or represents a substantial portion of the information contained in the financial statements. (CONTINUED ON PAGE 17)

SOURCES Financial information is sourced from the available audited financial statements of the respective municipalities. In some instances we were not able to obtain audited statements, in which cases the information is taken from the unaudited financial statements. Where unaudited figures are used it is indicated in the text. Much more comprehensive financial information is available at www.municipalities.co.za. A direct link to the source document is also available, as hosted by the MFMA department of the National Treasury. If a municipality has municipal entities under its control, the figures reflect the combined group.

UNAUTHORISED, IRREGULAR, FRUITLESS AND WASTEFUL (UIFW) EXPENDITURE

The separate figures for each type of expenditure are available at www.municipalities.co.za.

BLUE DROP SCORES The Blue Drop Scores are sourced from the Blue Drop Reports published by The Department: Water Affairs. The full Blue Drop Report is produced every second year. The next report is due in 2014. The full reports are available at www.dwaf.gov.za. The Municipal Blue Drop Score is a performance indicator of the overall municipal drinking water quality management performance of the relevant municipality. The score relates to the quality of the drinking water, as well as containing a risk management measure relating to the ability of the responsible authority to sustain the quality of drinking water and to deal with any incidents that may pose a health risk to the public. The maximum score is 100 and the target of excellence is 95%.

The figures reflected for Unauthorised, Irregular, Fruitless and Wasteful (UIFW) Expenditure are primarily as published in The Consolidated General Report on the audit outcomes of Local Government 2011-12 and as supplied by AGSA. In certain instances, where the supplied figures were apparently incorrect, figures were amended with reference to annual financial statements. The figures for each municipality include municipal entities under its control.

GREEN DROP SCORES

It must also be noted that, while we have aggregated the figures for the purpose of the Handbook, each type of expenditure in this total is distinctly different in nature. The terminology is described by AGSA as follows:

The Municipal Green Drop Score is a performance indicator of the overall municipal wastewater business practice and compliance of the relevant municipality. The maximum score is 100.

Unauthorised Expenditure: Expenditure that was in excess of the amount budgeted or allocated by government to the auditee, or that was not incurred in accordance with the purpose for which it was intended.

GOVERNMENT COMMUNICATION AND INFORMATION SYSTEM (GCIS)

Irregular Expenditure: Expenditure incurred without complying with applicable legislation.

The Green Drop Scores are sourced from the Green Drop Reports published by The Department: Water Affairs. The full Green Drop Report is produced every second year. At our publication cut-off date (November 2013) the 2013 report had not yet been released. The full reports are available at www.dwaf.gov.za.

SOURCES

FINANCIAL INFORMATION

We also acknowledge the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) for providing invaluable source material and information. We have made extensive use of the South Africa Yearbook, published annually by GCIS, in compiling the overview and introductory information.

Fruitless and wasteful expenditure: Expenditure that was made in vain and could have been avoided had reasonable care been exercised. This includes penalties and interest on late payments, as well as payments for services not utilised or goods not received.

OVERVIEW OVERVIEW OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT IN SOUTH AFRICA South Africa is a constitutional democracy with a three-tier system of government. The national, provincial and local levels of government all have legislative and executive authority in their own spheres, and are defined in the Constitution of South Africa as “distinctive, interdependent and interrelated”.

OVERVIEW

In terms of Chapter 7 of the Constitution, the local sphere of government is made up of municipalities, which form the lowest formal level of democratically elected government in South Africa. A municipality has the right to govern, on its own initiative, the local government affairs of its community, subject to national and provincial legislation, as provided for in the Constitution. The executive and legislative authority of a municipality is vested in its Municipal Council. The objectives of local government are: • To provide democratic and accountable government for local communities • To ensure the provision of services to communities in a sustainable manner • To promote social and economic development • To promote a safe and healthy environment • To encourage the involvement of communities and community organisations in the matters of local government. While Chapter 7 of the Constitution provides the foundation for the establishment of municipalities, various Acts of Parliament have further defined these municipal structures since the inception of the current constitution, the most important of these being: • The Intergovernmental Relations Framework Act • The Local Government: Municipal Property Rates Act • The Local Government: Municipal Property Rates Amendment Act • The Local Government: Municipal Finance Management Act • The Local Government: Municipal Systems Act • The Local Government: Municipal Systems Amendment Act • The Local Government: Municipal Structures Act • The Local Government: Municipal Demarcation Act

The remainder of South Africa’s territory is administered by 44 district municipalities (also known as Category C municipalities). Each district municipality is further subdivided into various smaller local municipalities (also known as Category B municipalities). As an example, the territory administered by the Sedibeng District Municipality encompasses the Emfuleni- Lesedi- and Midvaal Local Municipalities. District and local municipalities share legislative and executive authority in respect of their commonly administered areas. District councils are primarily responsible for capacity building and district-wide planning. In total there are 278 municipalities in South Africa, comprising eight metropolitan, 44 district and 226 local municipalities. The political management of municipalities is made up of an elected Municipal Council. The term of a Municipal Council may not be more than five years. The Municipal Council makes decisions on exercising its powers and performing its functions, including electing its office bearers, as well as appointing its executive and other committees. The Municipal Council employs the executive management and personnel that are necessary for the effective performance of its functions.

APPLICABLE LEGISLATION The Local Government: Municipal Property Rates Act, 2004 regulates the power of a municipality to impose property rates, excludes certain properties from rating in the national interest, provides fair and equitable valuation methods of properties, and for municipalities to implement a transparent and fair system of exemptions, reductions and rebates through their rating policies. The Local Government: Municipal Property Rates Amendment Act, 2009 was introduced in September 2009 and aims to extend the validity of a valuation roll and supplementary valuation rolls from four to six years.

There are three kinds of municipalities in South Africa, metropolitan-, local- and district municipalities (also known as Category A, B and C municipalities).

The Local Government: Municipal Finance Management Act, 2003 is aimed at modernising municipal budgeting and financial management. It facilitates the development of a long-term municipal lending/bond market. It also introduces a governance framework for separate entities created by municipalities. The Act is a critical element in the overall transformation of local government in South Africa. It fosters transparency through budget and reporting requirements.

Metropolitan municipalities have been established to administer South Africa’s most urbanised areas. Metropolitan municipalities have exclusive municipal executive and legislative authority in their respective areas. There are eight metropolitan municipalities in South Africa: • Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality • City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality • City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality • City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality • Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality • eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality • Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality • Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality

The Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, 2000 establishes a framework for planning, performance-management systems, effective use of resources, and organisational change in a business context. The Act also establishes a system for municipalities to report on their performance, and provides residents with an opportunity to compare this performance with that of other municipalities. It also regulates public-private partnerships. The Act allows municipalities significant power to corporatise their services, to establish utilities for service delivery, or to enter into partnerships with other service providers. The Act provides for the adoption of a credit-control policy for municipalities that will provide for the termination of services in the event of non-payment. Municipalities have the power to pass by-laws to implement the policy.

The Local Government: Municipal Systems Amendment Act, 2011 is aimed at professionalising local government for improved service delivery and performance management, while also instilling a people-centred local government mindset in municipalities. A key objective of the Act is to progressively align the systems of municipal administration and human-resource management with those of the public service in national and provincial government. The aim of the Act, amongst other things, is to: • Professionalise local government by ensuring that the administrative apparatus of municipalities is staffed by appropriately qualified and competent persons to improve service delivery. • Require that employment contracts and performance agreements of municipal managers (and managers directly accountable to municipal managers) are consistent with the uniform systems and procedures set nationally.

• Extend the Minister’s regulatory power to make regulations relating to macro-benefits such as medical aid and pension benefits after consultation with the ministers of health and finance. The Local Government: Municipal Structures Act, 1998 provides for ward committees whose tasks, amongst other things, are to prepare, implement and review integrated development plans (IDPs) and establish, implement and review municipalities’ performancemanagement systems.

DEPARTMENT OF COOPERATIVE GOVERNANCE AND TRADITIONAL AFFAIRS (COGTA) CoGTA is responsible for facilitating cooperative governance, to support all spheres of government and to assist the institution of traditional leadership to transform itself into a strategic partner of government in the development of communities. (CONTINUED ON PAGE 24)

OVERVIEW CoGTA also oversees the implementation of the above-mentioned legislation applicable to local government. CoGTA has adopted the following strategic objectives, in respect of local government, which guide the development of its strategies and the setting of its performance indicators and milestones: • To build and enhance the governance system in order to enable sustainable development and service delivery • To build and strengthen the capability and the accountability of provinces and municipalities to implement their constitutional mandate • To monitor, evaluate and communicate the impact of government programmes in municipal areas in order to enhance performance, accountability and public confidence • To strengthen CoGTA’s organisational capability and performance to deliver on its mandate.

OVERVIEW

LOCAL GOVERNMENT TURNAROUND STRATEGY (LGTAS) In 2009, an assessment of the state of local government found that problems in municipalities included poor governance and accountability, weak financial management, and a high vacancy rate in critical senior management posts in many instances. The findings further indicated an inability in some municipalities to deliver on the core set of critical municipal services. The findings pointed to a need to do things differently and respond directly to the findings of those assessments. In reaction, the LGTAS was introduced as a government programme of action and a blueprint for better service delivery aimed at responsive, accountable, effective and efficient local government. Five focus areas, aimed at fast-tracking implementation of the strategy, have been identified. These are: • Service delivery • Governance • Financial management • Infrastructure development • Fighting corruption. Working with provinces and municipalities, 108 priority municipalities have been identified to receive targeted support. These municipalities have the highest backlogs in basic services, are financially distressed, have the highest number of informal settlements and are under-spending on their infrastructure grants. Stakeholders outside government have also been mobilised to support such initiatives. As part of the contribution to government’s overall Infrastructure Development Plan, R47 billion was budgeted for 2012 to 2014 towards the development of infrastructure in the 12 major cities to ensure that people enjoy a better life.

24

LGH2014_OVERVIEW.indd 24

In May 2012, The Municipal Support Agent (MISA) was proclaimed as a government agency as part of the LGTAS. The purpose of MISA is to be an institutional mechanism to manage and coordinate hands-on, targeted infrastructure development and technical capacity support without eroding the constitutional powers and functions of municipalities and other spheres of government.

OPERATION CLEAN AUDIT 2014 A key programme of the LGTAS is Operation Clean Audit 2014. Its main purpose is to address challenges faced by municipalities and provinces in managing audits, especially audit findings and queries from the Auditor-General (AGSA). The campaign seeks to achieve clean audits in municipalities and provincial government departments by the year 2014. While national and provincial government provide support, the primary responsibility to achieve clean audits remains that of municipalities.

INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLANS (IDP) In terms of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, all municipalities are required to prepare IDPs. Integrated development planning is a process by which municipalities prepare five-year strategic plans that are reviewed annually in consultation with communities and stakeholders. The aim is to achieve service delivery and development goals in municipal areas in an effective and sustainable way. National and provincial sector departments, development agencies, privatesector bodies, nongovernmental organisations, and communities all have a key role to play in preparing and implementing IDPs. The IDPs and LED strategies of municipalities must reflect the priorities of the entire public sector, including those of public entities and local business. The IDPs will be reviewed to ensure that the criteria, which determine to what extent adopted IDPs are credible or realistic, include critical aspects on LED strategies and planning.

MUNICIPAL INFRASTRUCTURE GRANT (MIG) The MIG is aimed at eradicating municipal infrastructure backlogs in poor communities to ensure the provision of basic services such as water, sanitation, roads and community lighting. The Department of Cooperative Governance is responsible for managing and transferring the MIG and provides support to provinces and municipalities with implementing MIG projects. In 2012/13, R9,2 billion was allocated towards the MIG. Spending on the grant resulted in the provision of water to 98 394 households, sanitation to 217 349 households, and building of 1 184km of municipal roads. In addition, 23 sports facilities were completed. (CONTINUED ON PAGE 26)

OVERVIEW LOCAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT (LED) LED is an approach towards economic development that allows and encourages local people to work together to achieve sustainable economic growth and development, thereby bringing economic benefits and improved quality of life for all residents in a local municipal area.

OVERVIEW

LED is intended to maximise the economic potential of municipal localities and enhance the resilience of macro-economic growth through increased local economic growth, employment creation, and development initiatives within the context of sustainable development. The “local” in economic development points to the fact that the political jurisdiction at local level is often the most appropriate place for economic intervention, as it carries alongside it the accountability and legitimacy of a democratically elected body. LED programmes provide support in the following areas: • Developing and reviewing national policy, strategy and guidelines on LED • Providing direct and hands-on support to provincial and local government • Managing the LED Fund • Managing and providing technical support to Nodal Economic Development Planning • Facilitating, coordinating and monitoring donor programmes • Assisting LED capacity-building processes. Through these interventions and resources, local role-players and interest groups are mobilised for the sake of achieving economic growth, and with the aim of creating jobs to reduce poverty.

MUNICIPAL DEMARCATION BOARD The Municipal Demarcation Board is an independent authority responsible for the determination of municipal boundaries. The Board’s status as an independent authority is also protected by the Local Government: Municipal Demarcation Act, 1998 and various judgements of the Constitutional Court. In addition to the determinations and re-determinations of municipal boundaries, the Board is also mandated by legislation to declare the district management areas, to delimit wards for local elections, and to assess the capacity of municipalities to perform their functions.

SOUTH AFRICAN LOCAL GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION (SALGA) Salga is a listed public entity, established in terms of Section 21 of the Companies Act, 1973 and recognised by the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs in terms of the

26

LGH2014_OVERVIEW.indd 26

Organised Local Government Act, 1997. Salga represents local government on numerous intergovernmental forums such as the PCC, Minister and MECs Forum, the Budget Forum, the NCOP, and the Financial and Fiscal Commission. Salga aims, amongst other things, to: • Transform local government to enable it to fulfil its developmental role • Enhance the role of provincial local government associations as provincial representatives and consultative bodies on local government • Raise the profile of local government • Ensure full participation of women • Act as the national employers’ organisation for municipal and provincial member employers • Provide legal assistance to its members. Salga is funded through a combination of sources, including a national government grant, membership fees from provincial and local government associations that are voluntary members, and donations from the donor community for specific projects.

GOVERNMENT COMMUNICATION AND INFORMATION SYSTEM (GCIS) The GCIS’s prime responsibility is to provide strategic leadership and to coordinate a government communication system that ensures that citizens are informed and have access to government programmes and policies that benefit them. The Chief Executive Officer of the GCIS is also the official spokesperson for Cabinet. He or she chairs the GCIS Executive Committee, a strategising body that integrates, coordinates and rationalises the work of the GCIS and government communication structures. The GCIS coordinates the Public Participation Programme and outreach events of political principals at national, provincial and local levels to reinforce dialogue and accountability to citizens. The GCIS also supports the implementation of access to governmentwide information and services through Thusong service centres. The GCIS effectively supports and plays a key role in coordinating the communication services for campaigns prioritised in the Government Communication Programme.

The oad Traffic Infringement Agency TIA is one of the roads agencies under the Department of Transport. The Agency s main focus is in uencing responsible behaviour in drivers as an intervention by government to curb the number of crashes on our roads.

BENEFITS OF AARTO TO LOCAL GOVERNMENT

VISION

KEY IMPACT POINTS OF THE AARTO IN MUNICIPALITIES AND METROS ARE: An efficient and effective administrative ad udication process countrywide; All traffic violations will be accorded the same status and sub ected to common punitive measures, instead of varying standards that are skewed in their application, based on the urisdictional responsibility of authorities; nhance good service delivery based on uniform standards of operating procedures among all law enforcement agencies; and The AA TO is geared towards strengthening the strategic framework to achieve the ob ective of increased road safety amongst all metros and municipalities in the country, as well as instilling a new respect for road traffic laws in order to attain the targets committed to by the outh African government in the Decade of Action for oad afety .

An informed, compliant and safe road user community.

MISSION

To encourage compliance with road traffic laws in outh Africa through targeted road user and community education and communication programmes; promotion of procedurally fair, lawful and reasonable administrative ad udication; levying of penalties; imposing demerit points; effectively administering and managing the suspension and cancellation of driving licences and operator cards; and rewarding compliant offenders.

VALUES

THE CORE VALUES OF THE RTIA ARE: Integrity. Transparency. airness. Accessibility. Accountability.

MANDATE AND OBJECTIVES

THE OBJECTIVES OF THE AGENCY ARE TO: administer the procedures to discourage the contravention of road traffic laws and to e ecute the ad udication of infringements; enforce penalties imposed against persons contravening road traffic laws; provide specialised prosecution support services; and undertake community education and community awareness programmes in order to ensure that individuals understand their rights and options. hen a person commits a traffic infringement, they would be taken through the court process as per the Criminal Procedures Act CPA , Act o of which would be costly both in time and money. The introduction of the Administrative Ad udication of oad Traffic Offences Act AA TO means that the infringer has administrative elective options that they can e ercise in dealing with the infringement which include Pay a discounted penalty; Make a representation to the TIA; Arrange to pay in monthly installments; ominate the driver of the vehicle; or lect to be tried in court.

Currently, the manner in which traffic infringements are being administered throughout the country makes it difficult for an efficient management of law enforcement activities.

The implementation of the AA TO and the Points Demerit ystem, are but one of the mechanisms geared at achieving critical success of increasing and sustaining road safety in our country. They are not stand alone programmes but part of a suite of proactive strategies for the improvement of road safety, together with other programmes such as the ational olling nforcement Plan, which targets the stopping and checking of million vehicles per month, as a continuous programme throughout the year and not only limited to ma or festive seasons. The strategies devised and procedures provided for in the AA TO provide for a transparent, fair, e uitable and effective system to manage and ad udicate road traffic offences and infringements, and should contribute to a large e tent Promote uality, safety and discipline in road traffic by providing for a scheme to discourage road traffic contraventions; acilitate the e peditious ad udication of road traffic infringements; upport the prosecution of offences in terms of the ational and Provincial laws relating to road traffic; Implement a points demerit system; and ffect a dramatic reduction in road traffic fatalities and in uries. In essence, the implementation of the AA TO seeks to change the behaviour of motorists. The critical over arching goal is road safety. y implementing the AA TO, we will be able to change people s behaviour from wanton disregard for road traffic laws, effecting ero tolerance policies to traffic violations and inculcate a new habit of voluntary compliance to road traffic laws. hen this is achieved, all road users in the country will be able to fully en oy the use and benefits of our country s road infrastructure.

Reinventing Planning, Changing Lives The South African Council for Planners (SACPLAN) is the statutory Council established in terms of the Planning Profession Act 36 of 2002 for the Planning Profession. The Planning Profession Principles apply to all registered planners.

The SACPLAN assures the quality of planning qualifications (such as degrees and diplomas) offered by educational institutions. This relates to professional registration because any person who intends to register as a planner in any of the categories in terms of the Act must have completed a qualification that has been accredited by SACPLAN. In addition, registered planners are expected to engage in continued professional development (CPD). The true mark of a planning practitioner is recognised through the use of the following designations: • Professional Planner (Pr.Pln) • Technical Planner (Tch.Pln) These practitioner titles carry considerable prestige and are an indication that competent planning professionals are capable of accepting professional responsibility for the planning work performed. SACPLAN’s Motto is “Reinventing Planning, Changing Lives”.

VISION STATEMENT

The vision of SACPLAN is to be a pioneer of the founding spirit of innovation in facilitating sustainable and inclusive development in the planning profession of the country.

MISSION STATEMENT

The SACPLAN’s mission is to profile the planning profession in South Africa to world-class standards through: • Regulating the Planning Profession so as to promote and protect the interests of the public in relation to planning • Increasing the numbers of registered planners and increasing representation in the planning profession • Inculcating discipline and ethical principles • Ensuring and promoting a high standard of education and training in the planning sector • Protecting and promoting the interests of registered planning professionals • Promoting good planning practice informed by the ethos, values and spirit of social justice, poverty eradication, spatial equity and environmental sustainability • Promoting social and environmental justice by continuously transforming the spatial form in order to realise equitable distribution of resources • Promoting innovative planning techniques in order to advance both rural and urban development.

SACPLAN.indd 1

VALUES

The South African Council for Planners strives to pursue excellence and professionalism in line with the Batho Pele principles with an emphasis on: • Integrity and honesty • Responsiveness • Transparency • Accountability • Innovation.

GENERAL

In addition to a formal educational background, planners possess a unique combination of skills that enhance their professional success. Because planning is a dynamic and diverse profession, individual skills vary depending on a planner’s role and area of specialisation. Planners possess a combination of these skills: • Knowledge of urban spatial structure or physical design and the way in which cities work • Ability to analyse demographic information to discern trends in population, employment and health • Knowledge of plan-making and project evaluation • Mastery of techniques for involving a wide range of people in making decisions • Understanding the local, regional and national government programmes and processes • Understanding the social and environmental impact of planning decisions on communities • Ability to work with the public and articulate planning issues to a wide variety of audiences • Ability to function as a mediator or facilitator when community interests conflict • Understanding of the legal foundation for land-use regulation; • Understanding of the interaction between the economy, transportation, health and human services, and land-use regulations • Ability to solve problems using a balance of technical competence, creativity, and hard-headed pragmatism • Ability to envision alternatives to the physical and social environments in which we live • Mastery of geographic information systems and office software.

FUTURE DEMARCATION CHANGES

The final decisions regarding the municipal boundary determinations were announced on 15 October 2013. The relevant notices in terms of Section 21(5)(b) of the Municipal Demarcation Act 27 of 1998, were published in the respective Provincial Government Gazettes from 17 October 2013 onwards. The final demarcation announcement saw the culmination of a process that started in 2011, shortly after the previous local government elections. In terms of the announcement, the Board confirmed 152 demarcation changes (including variations) to take effect on a to-be-determined future date. The changes can generally be divided into two categories: (i) changes that amalgamate and combine various municipalities or (ii) changes that only redetermine the geographic boundaries of a municipality, by excluding a certain area from one municipality and including it in the area of another adjacent municipality, but that do not affect either municipality’s ongoing existence. Currently, there are a total of 278 municipalities that fall into three categories (metropolitan, district and local municipalities). In terms of the redeterminations, the total number of municipalities will be reduced to 267. The demarcation changes that will amalgamate and affect the ongoing existence of current municipalities are as follows:

GAUTENG • Emfuleni and Midvaal Local Municipalities, along with Sedibeng District Municipality, will be amalgamated into a single Metropolitan Municipality. With this newly formed Metropolitan Municipality, the Sedibeng District Municipality will fall away. • In addition, Lesedi Local Municipality will be excluded from Sedibeng District Municipality (which ceases to exist) and will be included into Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality. • Randfontein and Westonaria Local Municipalities will be amalgamated into a single Local Municipality. • The boundary redeterminations in Gauteng will result in the number of municipalities in the province being reduced from 12 municipalities to eight municipalities.

The following table summarises the current and future number of municipalities:

NEXT STEPS AND EFFECTIVE DATES The confirmed redeterminations will be forwarded to the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) to allow it an opportunity to publish its views in terms of section 23 of the Municipal Demarcation Act. The views of the IEC will partly determine the effective dates of the different redeterminations. Those that do not materially affect representation in municipal councils may take effect at the beginning of the next municipal financial year. All those with a major impact on representation will only take effect on the date of the next local government elections. The IEC should publish its views in the relevant Provincial Gazettes within 60 days of receiving the particulars.

FUTURE DEMARCATION CHANGES

The municipalities and the demarcation of municipal boundaries published in this book reflect the status as at 1 December 2013. At this date, a number of future demarcation changes have already been finally determined by the Municipal Demarcation Board (the Board) but are not yet effective.

The MEC for Local Government in the province concerned must then, within three months of the date of the notice published by the IEC, publish a further notice in the w determining the date on which the boundary changes will become effective. The Board must also inform the Minister of Finance of the redeterminations, at least six months before the commencement date of the financial year.

KWAZULU-NATAL • The most affected province will be KwaZulu-Natal, where there are 35 confirmed redeterminations, including variations. Currently, there are 61 municipalities, which will be reduced through amalgamations to 54 municipalities. • The affected District Municipalities are Ugu, uThukela, uMkhanyakude, uThungulu and Harry Gwala District Municipalities. • The following Local Municipalities will be combined and amalgamated: o Vulamehlo and Umdoni Local Municipalities o Hlabisa and The Big 5 False Bay Local Municipalities o uMtshezi and Imbabazane Local Municipalities o Ezinqoleni and Hibiscus Coast Local Municipalities o Emnambithi/Ladysmith and Indaka Local Municipalities o Kwa Sani and Ingwe Local Municipalities o Ntambanana, Mthonjaneni and City of uMhlathuze Local Municipalities.

THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT HANDBOOK SOUTH AFRICA 2014

LGH2014_DEMARCATION CHANGES.indd 33

Based on this process, no changes will be effective before 30 June 2014. It is, however, more likely that any changes will only become effective the following year. All major changes will only become effective after the 2016 local government elections. At the date of publishing, it also appears that the amalgamation of the Emfuleni, Midvaal and Sedibeng Municipalities may still be contested by further legal action. No further changes to municipal boundaries will be considered by the Board until after the 2016 local government elections. All new cases submitted to the Board will be referred back to the applicants for resubmission after the 2016 local government elections. The full list of confirmed demarcation changes is available at www.demarcation.org.za.

MUNICIPAL DEMARCATION BOARD Demarcation House, 304 Orient Str, Arcadia, Pretoria, 0082 Private Bag X28, Hatfield, 0028, South Africa Telephone: +27 12 342 2481 www.demarcation.org.za

BACKGROUND During the apartheid era, local government was subject to provincial rule and comprised of 1 262 local government bodies, such as White Local Authorities; R293 black towns; Coloured and Indian Management Committees; Black Administration Boards; Community Councils; and Black Local Authorities. Under the interim Constitution, 1993, and the Local Government Transition Act, 1993, local elections were held in 1995/96, and the number of local authorities was reduced to 843. Provincial demarcation boards were responsible for the demarcation of the boundaries of these local authorities and for the delimitation of wards. Following the promulgation of the 1996 Constitution, the publication of the White Paper on Local Government in 1998, and the adoption of the Local Government: Municipal Demarcation Act, 1998, the Municipal Demarcation Board (the MDB or the Board) was established. The first Board was appointed on 1 February 1999. The MDB’s status as an independent authority is protected by sections 155 and 157 of the Constitution, and by section 3 of the Demarcation Act, 1998, and was confirmed in various judgements of the Constitutional Court. The MDB has the sole responsibility for the determination and redetermination of municipal boundaries and for the delimitation of wards for local elections. In addition, the MDB is mandated to categorise municipal areas into three categories, namely metropolitan municipalities (Category A), district municipalities (Category C) and local municipalities (Category B); to assess the capacity of municipalities to perform their functions; and to declare district management areas (DMAs). It may also, when so requested, render an advisory service in respect of matters provided for in appropriate legislation. The Board is funded by money appropriated annually by Parliament, and is accountable to Parliament.

VISION The vision of the Board is to contribute to Constitutional democracy through the spatial reorganisation of the whole territory of the Republic of South Africa, to make recommendations based on capacity assessments of the ability of municipalities to perform their powers and functions, and to give advice and support to enhance the development of a sound system of local government.

MISSION The mission of the Board is to perform its functions and exercise its powers in such a

DemarcatiionBoard.indd 1

manner so as to empower municipalities to: • Fulfil their constitutional obligations • Provide democratic and accountable government for the local communities • Provide services to communities in an equitable and sustainable manner • Promote social and economic development • Promote a safe and healthy environment • Enhance effective local governance • Plan and implement integrated development plans • Develop a tax base as inclusive as possible of users of municipal services in the municipality.

THE ROLE AND FUNCTIONS OF THE BOARD The MDB plays a critical role in demarcating municipal boundaries and delimiting wards to empower the electorate to elect councillors and parties of their choice in the municipal area, within which, the elected councillors and the municipal administration must provide services.

PROCESSES OF DETERMINING AND REDETERMINING MUNICIPAL BOUNDARIES The determination or redetermination of municipal boundaries and the delimitation of wards take place over a five-year period between local elections. The process of redetermining municipal boundaries, which began soon after the last local elections held on 18 May 2011, was finalised in October 2013. The process to delimit ward boundaries in preparation for the next local elections commenced in November 2013 and must be finalised before the date of the next local election in 2016. The recent process of redetermining municipal boundaries began in June 2011 with some 1 028 boundary proposals, submitted by stakeholders. The approach adopted by the Board was planned in two broad phases: • the consultation phases • the legal phases The consultation phase included nationwide, scheduled, open meetings held at district level in 2011 and again in 2012. The Board was able to engage directly with its stakeholders and affected communities during this phase. The first phase of consultation included: • June 2011, MDB delegation consulted with MECs for Cooperative Governance (FS, KZN, LIM, etc.) • Issue circular 1/2011 (June 2011) • August – December 2011, visited all affected municipalities and stakeholders at Metro and

District level and consulted on 558 proposals • Initial deadline was 15 December 2011, which was later extended to 20 January 2012 • By the 20 January 2012 closing date, an additional 470 submissions were received, making a total of 1 028 submissions recorded by MDB by the closing date. • Second round visits by MDB, to consult municipalities and stakeholders on additional 470 cases, were set aside for May – July 2012 • Additional requests for meetings from individuals, communities and groups (SANCO, etc) were considered and attended by MDB • MDB also visited and addressed the National House of Traditional Leaders and relevant Provincial Houses of Traditional Leaders • MDB also met with the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA) • Briefed Portfolio Committee of COGTA • Visited all Executive Mayors of metros After carefully consideration of the inputs received during the consultations, a decision was taken to consider 204 municipal boundary proposals in terms of section 26. The Board published its intention to consider the boundary redeterminations in various newspapers during November 2012. This marked the start of the legal process. After considering the views received, the Board resolved to conduct public meetings and formal investigations on some proposals. • 204 proposals published in terms of section 26 (November - December 2012) • 540 views received on 126 proposals • 80 proposals had formal investigations conducted • 33 cases had public meetings conducted • 157 cases published in terms of Section 21 (August - September 2013) • 147 cases confirmed, four cases varied and six cases withdrawn by the Board in terms of section 21(5) in October 2013

WARD DELIMITATION FOR 2016 LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS After having finalised the boundaries of the municipalities, preparations for elections commence. The MDB plays a key role in this process. The electoral system provides for the election of ward councillors, and it is the responsibility of the MDB to delimit such wards within which ward councillors can be elected. Whilst the MDB endeavours to retain stable ward boundaries as far as possible, it is, in general, not possible due to an increase or decrease in the number of registered voters, which impacts

2013/12/10 3:48 PM


on the number of councillors and, thus, on the number of wards. As in the case of municipal boundaries, the MDB follows a lengthy consultative process before final ward boundaries are finalised in compliance with the criteria provided for in Schedule 1 of the Municipal Structures Act, 1998. The MDB provides draft sets of ward maps to stakeholders and communities and convenes meetings with them with a view to reach agreement on the ward boundaries before the commencement of the legal process.

KEY ROLE PLAYERS IN WARD DELIMITATION Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) The IEC is to provide the certified voters’ roll, divided into municipal segments, voting district and voting station data.

Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs The minister must publish the formula to calculate the number of councillors per municipality.

Provincial MEC for Local Government The MEC must publish the number of councillors per municipality.

norm (average number of registered voters per ward), calculate the 15 percent deviation above and below the norm, and delimit the wards using these calculations.

MDB’S ACTIVITIES DURING WARD DELIMITATION 2013-2015 PHASE 1: AWARENESS CAMPAIGN The success of the ward delimitation process depends not only on the successful delimitation of wards for all municipalities in the country but also on public participation. This phase will be dominated by the awareness campaign, which is focused on the following objectives: • Creating awareness about the legal requirements for the ward delimitation process • Discussing the challenges experienced in the previous ward delimitation, with an intention to improve the next ward delimitation process • Outlining the broad timeframes for the next ward delimitation process • Clarifying the role of provincial departments responsible for local government in ward delimitation • Sharing experiences on public participation in the ward delimitation process.

Municipal Demarcation Board (MDB)

PHASE 2: CONSULTATIONS ON DRAFT WARD BOUNDARIES

The role of the MDB is to use the published number of councillors to calculate the number of wards for each municipality, calculate the

In preparation for these consultations, a circular will be circulated detailing a schedule of consultations. These consultations will be

DemarcatiionBoard.indd 2

arranged at local municipality level. A session will be arranged per municipality to discuss and facilitate consensus on each ward within a particular municipality. This will target municipalities, councillors, political parties, traditional leadership, etc. The Board will facilitate these sessions. The main purpose is to obtain locally generated proposals on wards. Stakeholders and municipalities will be encouraged to conduct further public consultations until December 2014.

PHASE 3: PUBLICATION OF WARD BOUNDARIES The publication of ward boundaries in the Provincial Gazettes invites objections, considers objections and publishes final ward boundaries.

PHASE 4: HANDOVER OF BOUNDARIES TO THE INDEPENDENT ELECTORAL COMMISSION Final ward boundaries, delimited and published by the Board, will be handed to the Independent Electoral Commission.

CONCLUSION The Municipal Demarcation Board is required to provide the Independent Electoral Commission with the finalised ward boundaries by June 2015 to allow sufficient time to conduct voter registration and prepare for the local elections, therefore it is crucial for the Municipal Demarcation Board to conclude its activities and finalise the process by the said date.

The Eastern Cape is located on the east coast of South Africa between the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces. Inland, it borders the Northern Cape and Free State provinces, as well as Lesotho. The region boasts remarkable natural diversity, ranging from the semi-arid Great Karoo to the forests of the Wild Coast and the Keiskamma Valley, the fertile Langkloof and the mountainous southern Drakensberg region. The Eastern Cape’s main feature is its spectacular coastline bordering the Indian Ocean. It covers an area of 168 966km2 and has a population of 6 562 053. It is the second-largest province in South Africa by surface area and has the thirdlargest population. The capital is Bhisho. Other major cities and towns include Port Elizabeth, East London, Grahamstown, Mthatha, Graaf Reinet, Cradock and Port St Johns. The Eastern Cape is one of South Africa’s poorest provinces incorporating large areas of South Africa’s former homelands. The Eastern Cape has excellent agricultural and forestry potential. The fertile Langkloof Valley in the south-west has enormous deciduous fruit orchards, while the Karoo interior is an important sheep-farming area. The Alexandria-Grahamstown area produces pineapples, chicory and dairy products, while coffee and tea are cultivated at Magwa. People in the former Transkei region are dependent on the farming of cattle, maize and sorghum. The metropolitan economies of Port Elizabeth and East London are based primarily on manufacturing, the most important industry being motor manufacturing. The province is the hub of South Africa’s automotive industry. The Eastern Cape is divided into two metropolitan municipalities (Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality and Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality) and six district municipalities, which are further subdivided into 37 local municipalities.

GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY Area: 10 731km2 Description: Alfred Nzo District Municipality is a Category C municipality located in the north-eastern corner of the Eastern Cape province. It stretches from the Drakensberg Mountains, bordering Lesotho in the west, Harry Gwala (Sisonke) District Municipality to the north, and OR Tambo District Municipality in the east and south. The municipality is comprised of Matatiele, Ntabankulu, Mbizana and Umzimvubu Local Municipalities. The district surface area has increased due to the incorporation of Mbizana and Ntabankulu Local Municipalities. The process also entailed the amendment of all four municipalities’ wards, where the wards for Umzimvubu Local Municipality (LM) increased from 24 to 27, due to some wards from Ntabankulu Municipality being incorporated under Umzimvubu LM; Matatiele from 24 to 26; Mbizana from 25 to 31; and Ntabankulu from 15 to 18 wards. The changes resulted in Alfred Nzo District Municipality being formed by a total of 102 wards.

GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY

ADMINISTRATIVE MANAGEMENT

Area: 4 352km2 Description: Matatiele Local Municipality is located in the northern part of the Eastern Cape province. It adjoins Elundini Municipality to the south-west, Greater Kokstad Municipality to the east, and Lesotho to the north. It is one of the four local municipalities forming part of the Alfred Nzo District Municipality. The other municipalities are Umzimvubu, Mbizana and Ntabankulu Local Municipalities (LMs). The R56 road is a major arterial and trade route running through the municipality in an east-west direction, linking Matatiele with Kokstad to the east and Mount Fletcher to the west. It links the municipality with the KwaZulu-Natal province and parts of the Eastern Cape province located south of Matatiele LM. The western parts of the area (commercial agricultural farms) form part of the high production potential land stretching from Matatiele and Kokstad in the south through the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands to the north-western parts of KwaZulu-Natal. Matatiele municipal area is composed of the commercial farmlands surrounding the service centre of Matatiele, the town of Cedarville, and the R293 township of Maluti. The municipality is predominantly rural in nature. While Matatiele Town serves as a service centre and/or the main economic hub for Matatiele LM and beyond, and is identified in the District Municipality SDF as a primary node, the settlement pattern is characterised by dispersed rural settlements surrounded by subsistence farmlands in the former Transkei region. The area is located at the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains. It adjoins the World Heritage Site along its western boundary and was included in the Maloti-Drakensberg Transfrontier Conservation and Development Project (MDTP). The latter was a collaborative initiative between South Africa and the Kingdom of Lesotho to protect the exceptional biodiversity of the Drakensberg and Maloti Mountains through conservation, sustainable resource use, and land-use and development planning.

EASTERN CAPE

Area: 2 417km2 Description: Mbizana Local Municipality is located in the Eastern Cape province on the R61 road connecting KwaZulu-Natal South Coastal Boundary to the N2 highway. It is one of the local municipalities under Alfred Nzo District Municipality. Mbizana prides itself on a cultural diversity that includes a variety of tribes such as Xhosas, Mpondos, Sothos and Ngunis. However, the population is dominated by the Mpondo tribe, which has its own unique dialect, isiMpondo, a soft mixture of isiXhosa and isiZulu. A femaledominated society, the municipality makes efforts to integrate and incorporate women in key decision-making roles within the institution to reflect this demographic. The majority of households in Mbizana are of a rural nature. This results in natural resources providing a strong base for basic survival as those living in rural areas turn to subsistence farming for their livelihoods. Mbizana Local Municipality stretches between the Umtamvuna and Mtentu Rivers, with pristine beaches and scenic estuaries. This coastline is part of the famous Wild Coast and Pondoland centre that boasts valuable flora and fauna found nowhere else in the world. It is also home to one of the greatest sons of Africa, Oliver Reginald Tambo, who was a revolutionary leader and the longest-serving ANC president.

GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY Area: 2 484km2 Description: Engcobo Local Municipality claims the most youthful population, as well as the highest rates of poverty and unemployment in the Chris Hani District Municipality, coupled with a high dependency ratio. The economy is underperforming and currently fails to create needed jobs and revenues. A dedicated LED strategy has been developed in order to guide interventions in turning this situation around. The municipality’s low productivity score points to the low GDP per worker (formal and informal), a relative shortage of skills available to the economy, and low growth. On a broad scale, the Engcobo Municipality has some striking features: it is a peripheral area in terms of the national economy, is underdeveloped, has a fragmented settlement pattern, has a low-density rural settlement environment, and its resource base is under pressure. On the scale of urban development, Engcobo Town is classified as a Sub-District Development Node by CHDM, (it is amongst a group of towns deemed to be on a second tier below the dominant district node of Queenstown).

METRO MUNICIPALITY

This means that Engcobo is understood to have an influence (reach or catchment population) beyond simply its local area and that it draws people to the town to access goods and services from a broader area (in some cases even from neighbouring municipalities). However, Engcobo may also currently be described as a low-density urban environment. In spite of its low density and intensity of development, Engcobo’s business centre is thriving, though it does not function optimally due to overcrowding and a lack of facilities serving both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Business in the town is reliant on commuters (rural consumers) and there is no mass of resident consumers. This limits the range of commercial and social facilities that the private sector provides in town and inhibits the development of a more vibrant urban character.

EASTERN CAPE

POLITICAL MANAGEMENT

GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY Area: 5 065km2 Description: Elundini Local Municipality (ELM) is located within the Joe Gqabi District in the north-eastern portion of the Eastern Cape province. The municipality is bounded by Lesotho and Senqu Municipality in the west, Chris Hani District Municipality in the south, OR Tambo District Municipality in the east and Alfred Nzo District Municipality in the north. The ELM is one of the most scenic and attractive areas of the province, with considerable potential lying in its deep, fertile soils and high rainfall. Compared to the other municipalities in the Joe Gqabi District, Elundini has prospects of significant growth and upliftment in the quality of life for its residents due to its relative abundance of natural resources. The urban areas and commercial farming district are the highest employers, where people have found employment in the agriculture, commercial and service sectors. There are very low levels of employment in the rural settlements. This can be partly attributed to the fact that these areas do not have a strong economic base and partly to the fact that most inhabitants are involved in subsistence-related activities with little surplus being produced for economic profit. Due to the migrant system in operation in South Africa, the impact of recessionary downturns in the economy elsewhere (such as in the mining industry, Gauteng and Cape Town) have had an impact on the Elundini area. There is still a heavy reliance on income from migrant sources. Cities/Towns: Maclear, Mount Fletcher, Ugie Main Economic Sectors: Social services/government (41%), agriculture (28%), wholesale and retail trade (14%)

EASTERN CAPE

GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY Area: 8 911km2 Description: Gariep Local Municipality is located in the west of the Joe Gqabi District Municipality, south of the Orange River and Gariep Dam, and shares boundaries with the following local municipalities: Inkwanca to the south-east, Tsolwana to the south, Inxuba Yethemba to the south-west and Maletswai to the east. The Orange River separates Gariep from both the Northern Cape and the Free State provinces. The Gariep Local Municipality has fairly diverse vegetation and is home to three distinct vegetation types, one of which – Eastern Mixed Nama Karoo – is recognised as a nationally significant biome. It is characterised by mountains, hills and valleys. This area is well known for its stock farming, of which sheep production is one of the dominating sectors. The streams and rivers team with fish, trout being a common species. Rock foundations have beautiful artwork made years ago by the founders of the area – the Khoisan. Gariep Local Municipality is small, with limited resources, and is therefore heavily reliant on Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) funding for expensive infrastructure investment. This allows the municipality to ringfence own funding for operations and maintenance. To increase capital investment, strong partnerships have to be formed with the district, sector departments and private sector. Investment remains the cornerstone of development and Gariep Municipality intends to create an environment that will attract economic growth. However, it must be acknowledged that the municipality cannot overcome poverty or attract new investment on its own and it will take concerted efforts from all spheres and business to exploit areas with economic growth potential. The overarching strategy has been structured to map the development path that will enable other important role-players to invest and support development in the Gariep municipal area as a whole. Internal capacity should be strengthened to enable the municipality to support and coordinate investment initiatives and lobby for funding.

EXECUTIVE MAYOR’S MESSAGE ON 70% CAPITAL EXPENDITURE As the ANC government, we proclaim our commitment to the constitutional right of service delivery to the poor. We are mindful that improved service delivery in our municipality is largely dependant on effective governance underpinned by democratic principles. It’s been our mission to establish and maintain an effective municipality that is financially sustainable and capable of delivering high-quality services. As Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality, we’ve largely invested in improving our planning processes and the oversight role of Councillors, as well as the Mayoral Committee, who ensure that the Municipality excels in its performance. We’ve invested in resources, and in stabilising and professionalising our administration to improve its efficiency. More

EASTERN CAPE

importantly, we’ve devoted considerable resources to facilitating community participation in municipality affairs - making our municipality truly people centred. It is in this political and strategic context that we hereby share municipal achievements for the preceding financial year 2012/13. The Municipality’s ability to spend public resources responsibly has become a critical measure in determining its performance since the advent of democratic local government in South Africa. This has been further enforced through the introduction of the Municipal Financial Management Act in 2003. As a metro, we’ve made significant improvements in financial expenditure, from a 38% rate of expenditure in the 2011/12 financial year to a 70% rate of expenditure in 2012/13 on core service delivery projects. This marks an improvement of 32% in a year, meaning we are capable of achieving 100% expenditure in the 2013/14 financial year. We’ve been assured by the Finance Directorate that the remaining 30% has already been committed and that no money is going back to the National Treasury. It is, therefore, essential that communities continue to engage the Municipality and ensure that it keeps to its commitments. The Council and the Executive’s duty is to monitor and oversee the implementation of all the municipal plans and strategies by the Administration. It is self-motivating to see how we’ve made families happy in Duncan Village by prioritising the supply of electricity to shacks. The use of illegal connections increasingly risks the lives of innocent citizens whilst costing the Metro considerable revenue. Soon an awareness campaign to highlight the dangers of illegal connections will be rolled out. I am happy to confirm that more than 200 shacks have already been electrified and R10 million has been set aside in the interest of restoring dignity to our people through providing them with the basic right to electricity. This investment will also pay off by minimising unnecessary electricity outages caused by illegal connections. We trust that our people will embrace this campaign as it seeks to address their plight. In other areas, where there are bottlenecks, we have asked our administration to address such hindrances. It is in the interest of responsible governance that we account to you. We acknowledge that these successes wouldn’t be possible without the valuable input of the Finance Oversight Committee, the Municipal Public Accounts Committee, the Executive Mayoral Committee, and the entire Municipal Council, as well as the Administration led by the Municipal Manager. Speaking on the 90th birthday of Walter Sisulu in 2002, Nelson Mandela said, “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” We remain From top: Housing development; Electrification of shacks in Duncan Village; Roadworks; The construction of Buffalo Bridge.

EASTERN CAPE

From top: Beach; City upkeep; The Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Nelson Mandela Bay is run by a progressive multi-award winning municipality, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, which is committed to making the City the preferred destination for investors and tourists alike, always in close consultation and engagement with its 1,1 million residents. As the only city in the world officially named after former South African President and world humanitarian and icon, Nelson Mandela, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality strives to give effect to the principles and values associated with the great man, namely ubuntu, warmth, friendliness, unity and compassion. In March 2013, a new political leadership, headed by ANC stalwart, struggle leader and seasoned parliamentarian, Cllr Benson Fihla, assumed office, which saw the launch of the 100 Days’ Service Delivery Programme to fast-track delivery in respect with the most pressing needs of local communities.

SERVICE DELIVERY The 100 Days’ Programme focused on providing decent housing for all by accelerating housing delivery across the City, benefiting a broad range of communities. Other highlights of the 100 Days’ Programme include the launch of the integrated Public Transport System “Libongolethu” to provide local commuters with efficient, reliable and safe public transport; the establishment of an Investment Council; fast-tracking the Municipality’s Illegal Dumping Strategy; major job creation through the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) initiatives; and the successful roll-out of the Backyard Dwellers Registration Campaign. The launch of the Investment Council is an important step forward in the reconstruction and development of this city, and the Council is already hard at work to energise and improve the economic climate and conditions in Nelson Mandela Bay to make it a more attractive place for investors. All households within the urban edge now have access to water within a 200m radius, and altogether 98% of households have access to basic refuse removal services. In the quest to become a greener and cleaner city, waste recycling initiatives were introduced, as well as three renewable energy pilot projects (wind turbines, solar energy and energy from waste).

ECONOMY The Municipality is committed to transforming Nelson Mandela Bay into a globally competitive and preferred destination for

78

LGH2014_PROFILE_NELSONMANDELABAY.indd 78

investors and tourists. Its work in developing the local economy is complemented by a number of forums, such as the Local Economic Development Forum, the NMB Investment Council, the Economic Advisory Panel and the GDS Coordinating Forum. In addition, a number of development agency boards are operative in Nelson Mandela Bay. Key strategic projects are being rolled out to alleviate poverty and further boost the vibrant local tourism industry, including the establishment of a Science Centre in Uitenhage; the establishment of the Mendi Multi-Purpose Cultural Centre; the upgrading of Fountain Road, Walmer; the redevelopment of the Tramways Building and of Njoli Square; and the Helenvale Urban Renewal Programme. Through its Local Economic Development Strategy (LEDS), which also focuses on investment promotion, the region has recently attracted a number of major new investments: • A R100 million investment by Clover (100 jobs created) • A R46 million investment by Lighting Innovation (80 jobs created) • A R600 million investment by Chinese automotive giant, First Automobile Works (FAW) (500 jobs to be created). The future looks bright for a city full of prospects. Undeniably the biggest investment is that of FAW at the Coega Industrial Development Zone outside the City, which will see FAW construct a state-of-the-art truck and passenger car plant. The investment, funded jointly by FAW and China-Africa Fund, will, during the first phase, generate 500 permanent jobs for the region, with more jobs expected when FAW expands operations to include the production of passenger vehicles. The Coega Industrial Development Zone (IDZ) and Ngqura deepwater Port, which are located 20km east of the city centre, are set to transform the economy of the region and the Eastern Cape. The Coega IDZ is a harbour serviced track of land that offers a duty-free environment, with tax incentives for investors. The Port of Ngqura, a Greenfields Project, serves as the IDZ’s link to the ocean. The state-of-the-art deep-water Port of Ngqura was officially opened early in 2012, marking a major milestone in the country’s infrastructure development efforts and commitment to regional economic development. Transnet earmarked Ngqura as a transhipment hub linking trade routes between the East and the West. The automotive sector remains Nelson Mandela Bay’s primary manufacturing driver, with the Eastern Cape representing 40% of the value of South Africa’s multi-billion rand automotive industry. The development of the Nelson Mandela Bay Logistics Park, situated next to the Volkswagen plant in Uitenhage, has stimulated the growth of the local automotive industry. Nelson Mandela Bay is also the preferred region for the manufacture of pharmaceutical products, yoghurt, chocolates, ice-cream, soft drinks, hides and leather goods and is a major export port for manganese ore, catalytic converters and vehicle components. The City is a major exporter of mohair and is known as the “Mohair Capital of the World”.

TOURISM With a beautiful golden expanse of 42km of beaches, Nelson Mandela Bay has been dubbed the “Watersports Capital of Africa” and remains one of the preferred destinations for enthusiasts of sailing, fishing, diving, surfing and wind-surfing. It continues to successfully host Africa’s only Ironman Triathlon, with thousands of visitors descending on the Bay’s beachfront every year to be part of this exhilarating and spectacular event. Nelson Mandela Bay is also the proud host city for the international IRB Sevens World Series until 2014. The iconic Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium has hosted many successful high-profile sporting and cultural events and is home to the Eastern Province Kings. The Stadium won a prestigious engineering award for being the best stadium in the country, with criteria including ease of access and exit, facilities for people with disabilities, and aesthetics.

CACADU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY POSTAL: PO Box 318, Port Elizabeth, 6000 PHYSICAL: 32 Govan Mbeki Avenue, Port Elizabeth TEL: 041 508 7111 | FAX: 041 508 7000 WEB: www.cacadu.co.za | FACEBOOK: Cacadu District Municipality The Cacadu District is situated in the western portion of the Eastern Cape and wholly surrounds Nelson Mandela Bay. It is the largest (58 243km2) of the six districts in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. Covering 34% of the entire Eastern Cape Province’s geographical footprint, the District stretches from the Karoo areas in the north to the coastal belt of the Indian Ocean in the south, and includes inland areas that lie between the Bloukrans River in the west and Great Fish River in the east. The Eastern Cape Province is incredibly rich in culture and home to four tribal kingdoms, including Xhosa, Pondo, Sotho and the Khoisan – said to be among the first inhabitants of the Province. Known as the “Adventure Province”, the Eastern Cape has the only Big Seven reserve in the world, namely Addo Elephant National Park, and a World Heritage Site, namely the Baviaanskloof, within its boundaries. The lifestyle is relaxed, balanced and family-orientated, while the tourism industry is thriving. The area is characterised by immense contrasts in scenery, vegetation, wildlife, history and culture. Residents have access to world-class medical, sports and education facilities like Rhodes, Walter Sisulu, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan and Fort Hare Universities. The Eastern Cape offers one of the best combinations of lifestyle and opportunity. Whatever your line of business, the Province boasts a healthy economic variety of manufacturing, industry and agro-industry supported by infrastructure and development initiatives, while motoring giants like Volkswagen South Africa, Ford and General Motors are also based here. It is also the only province that is home to two Industrial Development

EASTERN CAPE

Zones (IDZs) and a deep-water port. The Cacadu District Municipality focuses on creating projects to grow skills and employment and initiate sustainable economic development as well as to elevate the quality of life in the District. Some rare skills, such as shearing Angora goats for mohair, are available in the District and where a skills shortage is being experienced, initiatives are being undertaken to combat the skills shortage and, in turn, create jobs for local people.

POTENTIAL AREAS FOR INVESTMENT Several potential areas of investment have been identified within the Cacadu District. They include:

AQUACULTURE The aquaculture industry consists of the farming of aquatic, i.e. freshwater and marine, organisms under controlled conditions that include interventions such as regular stocking and feeding during the rearing process to increase production. The Camdeboo Satellite Aquaculture Project (CSAP) aims to establish a preserved freshwater fish industry in the Graaff-Reinet area in order to address fish supply shortfalls, whilst simultaneously creating sustainable self-employment opportunities for rural women and promoting pro-poor economic growth and social equity. Once perfected and successfully implemented in Graaff-Reinet, CSAP may be replicated in other rural and remote areas of the country, creating enormous social and economic benefits for thousands of South Africans, as well as a source of affordable protein and nutrients for millions of people. The freshwater fish produced by aquaculture clusters will be processed and packaged and sold locally at an affordable price to bulk markets. Currently, CSAP is focusing on the establishment of the first commercial scale central management farm as well as the processing facility. Investment opportunities exist within both the production and processing areas of this project. CITRUS Citrus is a major international commercial fruit crop that is widely consumed on a global scale, both as fresh fruit and juice. The citrus industry, within the Cacadu District, is largely found in the Sundays River Valley area. The small town of Kirkwood is considered to be the citrus capital of the Eastern Cape and is also the centre of one of the largest citrus regions in South Africa, with approximately 12 000ha of citrus orchards. From top: Cacadu District offers a number of potential investment areas, including aquaculture, dairy, pineapple farming, renewable energy and mohair production.

THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT HANDBOOK SOUTH AFRICA 2014

2013/12/11 9:43 AM


DAIRY The Eastern Cape produces approximately 30% of the South African milk output, with the Cacadu District supplying 20% of this output. Approximately 600 000 to 800 000 litres of fresh milk are transported daily by tanker from the Tsitsikamma and Alexandria areas, within the Kou-Kamma and Ndlambe Local Municipalities respectively, to processing plants in Gauteng, Durban and Cape Town at a cost of some R90 million per annum.

ESSENTIAL OILS Since the essential oils market is largely an untapped market for Cacadu, there is huge growth potential for this sector. There are over 300 plants that can produce essential oils, of which the most suitable for this area is still being assessed and studied. The essential oils sector is charaterised by the extraction of volatile fragrance components from plants, while the plant oils are extracted through distillation at yields of 0.01-2%.

HONEYBUSH Honeybush is an indigenous plant found exclusively in South Africa, within the fynbos region. It is used to produce a uniquely flavoured herbal tea. The most sought after parts of the plant are the flowers and leaves, which are used to produce Honeybush tea. Honeybush is grown wild and cultivated in the Langkloof area.

LEATHER The Cacadu District is well suited for the leather industry as the Eastern Cape is home to the largest number of livestock. Typically, the value of cattle hides and sheep and goat skins represents in the region of 5-15% of the market value of an animal. The by-product nature of the leather industry prevents a significant waste problem that would arise if the leather industry did not exist.

LIVESTOCK Livestock farming within the Cacadu District is largely attributed to the farming of cattle, sheep and goats. The mixed-veld types of the Eastern Cape present a competitive advantage for livestock activities, hence the Province generates the greatest volume of livestock farming within the country. The concentration of sheep farming is located in the more arid parts of the country, where the Eastern Cape is responsible for the greatest total number of sheep. Sheep flock sizes vary between less than 50 and 1 800 head. The Eastern Cape dominates the total number of goats farmed in the country. Flocks of goats intended for meat production are usually smaller than sheep flocks, averaging approximately 300 head per farm. OSTRICH Essentially, the ostrich can be raised for meat, leather and feathers, however, the main focus within the Cacadu District is on the export of the meat. Therefore, the leather, eggs and feathers are considered as by-products. The ostrich industry is a growing economic sector that is gaining popularity within the market as recognition is given to the reduced cholesterol content of the meat, making it a healthy alternative to other red meat. PINEAPPLES The Cacadu District is currently home to an emergent pineapple industry, of which the majority is grown within the Ndlambe Local Municipality. Ndlambe Natural Industrial Products (NNIP) is a Bathurst-based company formed in 2006 by various stakeholders to implement the Eastern Cape Pineapple Industry Residue Benefaction Project, which involves the development of value-added products out of what were previously considered waste materials, and the relocation to and consolidation of the entire pineapple processing industry in Bathurst. The focus of the Eastern Cape Pineapple Residue Benefaction Project is on creating a sustainable agricultural/agro-processing business model through value addition to what were previously considered agricultural and agro-processing waste streams. Currently, this material is burnt or ploughed back into the ground after the completion of the fruit production cycle, and is of no commercial value to the pineapple growers. The thesis of this project is that the pineapple plant material can be economically converted into value added products as follows: • Cellulosic fibre in the leaves will be converted into microcrystalline cellulose • Bromelain enzymes will be extracted from the stems of the plants. Investment and the successful implementation of this project will be of enormous economic benefit to the pineapple growers and the pineapple processing industry.

MOHAIR The Eastern Cape Province is the largest producer of mohair in South Africa, contributing approximately three quarters of the nation’s current production. Cacadu is the Province’s, and therefore the country’s, largest producer of mohair, with approximately 49% of South Africa’s market shares. Angora goats produce a fibre that combines the warmth of wool with the durability to be coloured, similar to synthetic material. Colouring of the fibre results in a high reflectance value and clarity of colour. Kid mohair, due to its exceptional quality, continues to be in high demand worldwide and used in the manufacturing of fashion garments. KAOLIN The Cacadu District has significant Kaolin deposits and potential for cluster development around Kaolin in the Makana Local Municipality. Kaolin is a broad name given to a range of clay-compound substances made up of Kaolinite and several other minerals. Depending on its individual chemical characteristics and the extent to which it is processed, Kaolin is used as filler and input in the manufacture and production of several goods.

RENEWABLE ENERGY Renewable energy is sustainable and an environmentally friendly alternative to coal as it produces minimal amounts of pollution and harmful gases. South Africa has prioritised the use of renewable energy to meet the growing demand for energy. Wind farms are already being erected in areas such as Kouga and Kou-Kamma, while other Renewable Energy developments are being planned in the District. The Department of Energy (DOE) has launched and periodically publishes Request for Proposals (RFP) in terms of the department’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer (IPP) Programme, whereby independent power producers are invited to submit proposals for renewable energy. Six out of the 15 wind farm developments approved in terms of the DOE’s Renewable Energy (IPP) Programme will be located in the Cacadu District, accounting for almost half, i.e. 48% (579.16MW) of the total wind power generation projects awarded nationally. In addition, three of the largest energy generating wind farms, i.e. Amakhala Emoyeni (137.9MW), Cookhouse Wind Farm (135MW) and Jeffreys Bay (133.86MW) are to be developed in the District Municipality.

different programmes such as showcasing of local artists, trade vendors, cultural and traditional exposure of Matatiele, the accommodation sector, the transport sector and exhibitors.

SUPPORTING RURAL DEVELOPMENT Matatiele Local Municipality bought a milling facility for local agricultural cooperatives and emerging farmers. This will add value to farmer’s grain products such as maize and sorghum. Furthermore, in partnership with the Department of Rural Development and Agrarian Reform, the Municipality is resuscitating a programme of massive food production for our rural communities. This, in turn, will support the milling facility that will process, with added value to the project, the primary production of these foods. In addition, the Municipality is also promoting rural community economic development and empowerment, with the key objectives of promoting investment in basic infrastructure and social welfare, promoting broadened access to productive resources, and funding for local economic development and implementation in the rural areas.

The Free State is located in the geographical centre of South Africa, bordered by the Northern Cape, Eastern Cape, North West, Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng provinces, as well as Lesotho. The Free State is a rural province of farmland, mountains, goldfields and widely dispersed towns. Although the Free State is the third-largest province in South Africa, it has the second-smallest population and the second-lowest population density. It covers an area of 129 825km2 and has a population of 2 745 590 – 5.3% of the national population. Its capital is Bloemfontein, which is South Africa’s judicial capital. Other important towns include Welkom, Kroonstad, Sasolburg and Bethlehem. The economy is dominated by agriculture, mining and manufacturing. Known as the “bread basket” of South Africa, about 90% of the province is under cultivation for crop production. It produces approximately 34% of the total maize production of South Africa, 37% of wheat, 53% of sorghum, 33% of potatoes, 18% of red meat, 30% of groundnuts and 15% of wool. The province is the world’s fifth-largest gold producer, with mining the major employer. It is a leader in the chemicals industry, being home to the giant synthetic fuels company, Sasol. The Vredefort Dome, 10km in diameter, about 100km south-west of Johannesburg, is South Africa’s seventh World Heritage Site. The Free State is divided into one metropolitan municipality (Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality) and four district municipalities, which are further subdivided into 19 local municipalities.

MANGAUNG

Area: 6 284km2 Description: Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality is a Category A municipality. It is situated in the Free State province, in the central interior of South Africa. The Free State is bordered by the Gauteng, Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and North West provinces, as well as by the neighbouring country of Lesotho. Mangaung, meaning “Place of the Cheetahs” accentuates the vibrant, dynamic and energetic character of the tourism industry in the “City on the move (at the heart of it all)”. The economy is strongly driven by the government sector, which has seen the fastest growth in the last five years as a result of increased government programmes in livelihoods improvement interventions. The finance sector is the second-fastest growing sector due to very active estate and construction activities. Small businesses have a major role to play in the South African, and especially the Mangaung, economy in terms of employment creation, income generation and output growth. It is estimated that more than 12 million people in South Africa are actively involved in the SMME sector, which accounts for approximately 60% of all employment in the economy and 40% of output. In an area such as Mangaung, with its relatively high levels of unemployment and poverty, it can be expected that the SMME sector plays an even more important role in job creation and poverty alleviation. The informal economy makes an important contribution to the economic and social life of Mangaung. Due to the decline in formal employment and consequent increase in unemployment, many people seek alternative means of earning an income.

GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY Area: 7 925km2 Description: Moqhaka Local Municipality is situated within the southern part of the Fezile Dabi District in the Free State province. The seat of local government is Kroonstad. The community name is the south Sesotho word for “crown”. The former Kroonstad, Steynsrus and Viljoenskroon Transitional Local Councils and sections of the Riemland, Kroonkop and Koepel Transitional Rural Councils are included in the Moqhaka Local Municipality. The general tendency of migration from rural to urban areas is also occurring in the area, as is the case in the rest of the Free State province. In comparison to the other municipalities within the Fezile Dabi District, it appears as if Moqhaka is significantly less urbanised. The Greater Kroonstad area is the centre of a large agricultural community that plays an important role in the economy of the district. Subsequently, industrial activities contribute significantly to the district’s economy. The Department of Correctional Services and the School of Engineers’ military bases are situated in the town. Kroonstad has recently become a distinguished holiday destination due to the ultra-modern and popular holiday resort of Kroonpark, adjacent to the Vals River. The urban area is situated adjacent to the N1 National Road, and located adjacent to one of the largest and most important four-way railway junctions in South Africa. The Viljoenskroon / Rammulotsi urban area is located within an area of extreme agricultural significance. The urban area plays a significant role

GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY Area: 7 055km2 Description: Ngwathe Local Municipality is situated in the northern part of Fezile Dabi District Municipality. The Vaal River forms the northern boundary of the area, which also serves as the boundary between the Free State, Gauteng and North West provinces. The Renoster River also drains through the region and is dammed up in the vicinity of Koppies in a series of dams, namely the Weltevrede, Rooipoort and Koppies Dams. The rivers, together with the respective dams, are prominent water sources for agricultural purposes in the region. Other prominent topographical features include the Vredefort Dome. The form of the dome consists of a central cone of granite surrounded by concentric ridges of quartzite belonging to the Witwatersrand System. Parys has a strong commercial component and provides a wide range of services regarding health, education and professional services to the district. The Parys District has unique natural and environmental assets, like the Vaal River, with several islands in the proximity of Parys and the Vredefort Dome that present exceptional tourism potential. Parys has a well-developed airfield that supports commercial and tourism development in the area. Vredefort is the only town that formed the former Vredefort District. The former Heilbron District is predominantly an agricultural area, although major manufacturing industries contribute largely to the Gross Geographic Product of the district. Koppies is located in an area of agricultural significance and mainly provides services in this regard to the surrounding rural areas. The three well-established and developed irrigation schemes subsequently enhance the agricultural character of the area. The strategic location of Koppies between the larger centres of Kroonstad and Sasolburg influence growth and development within

the community. The bentonite exploitation near Koppies and the initiative for coal mining in the vicinity of the town provide significant future growth potential. Koppies is becoming known for its tourist attractions. Specific reference is made to the R82 Battlefield Route, which consists of several historical battlefields. These are envisaged to be further developed along with the Koppies Dam Nature Reserve. Edenville is also located in an area of agricultural significance. The main road linking Kroonstad and Heilbron runs adjacent to the area.

GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY Area: 6 796km2 Description: Masilonyana Local Municipality is situated between the province’s biggest municipality (Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality in the south) and the second-biggest municipality (Matjhabeng Local Municipality in the north). The former administration of the following greater Transitional Local Councils: Theunissen, Brandfort, Winburg, Soutpan and Verkeerdevlei, were amalgamated into the local municipality of Masilonyana. It is an impoverished semi-urban area with a high unemployment rate. The municipality prides itself on its tourist destinations, such as the Florisbad National Quaternary Research Station. This is where the first human skull was discovered. There are also cooperatives in Soutpan working on the salt lakes to produce salt. The municipality plays host to two toll plazas on two major roads in the province; the Verkeerdevlei Plaza on the N1 is the last before entering Bloemfontein from the north, and the Brandfort Plaza on the former R30 (now ZR Mahabane Road) is situated between Brandfort and Bloemfontein. Brandfort is also known for its rich political history, which includes the National Military Museum on a farm that used to be a concentration camp during the AngloBoer War and the Winnie Mandela House, where Mandela was sentenced to House Arrest during the State of Emergency in the 1980s. Theunissen is also situated on the ZR Mahabane Corridor between Bloemfontein and Welkom, and hosts the three mines within the municipal jurisdiction. Winburg has economic potential because of its location, which is 100km west of Bloemfontein, and its linking of Bloemfontein with Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. It prides itself with the Voortrekker Monument as its Heritage Site, and Masilonyana boasts several game reserves across all its towns. Cities/Towns: Brandfort, Soutpan, Theunissen, Verkeerdevlei, Winburg Main Economic Sectors: Agriculture, mining, community services, private households

GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY Area: 8 776km2 Description: Mohokare Local Municipality is situated within the Xhariep District in the south-eastern Free State. Zastron is perhaps the best-known of the three villages in this area. At the foot of the Aasvoëlberg is the famous Eye of Zastron, a 9m-wide hole through a sandstone rock. Examples of Bushman art can be found on the various farms in the area. Zastron is very close to Lesotho and a great place to start exploring. Smithfield has a peaceful, splendidly vast, unpolluted countryside, tucked neatly into a horseshoe of hills. Established in 1848 and named after Sir Harry Smith, then Governor of the Cape, Smithfield is the thirdoldest town in the Free State province. Rouxville is in the middle of a number of other interesting places such as Smithfield, Aliwal, Xhariep and Zastron, and boasts the impressive Maloti Mountains as a backdrop. Situated on the N6, Rouxville was founded by Petrus Wepenaar in 1863 on the farm Zuurbult. It was named after Reverand Pieter Roux, who travelled throughout the eastern Free State for many years holding church services for local communities. During the Anglo-Boer War, all of its citizens were called up and the town was completely deserted for two years. Cities/Towns: Rouxville, Smithfield, Zastron

“Situated at the centre of South Africa, Mangaung is the only metropolitan municipality in the Free State province. It is made up of three main areas: Thaba Nchu, Botshabelo and Bloemfontein. When I took over as Executive Mayor (EM) in 2011, as council, we outlined a number of areas to focus on. The common denominator of these was to create a stable city that works for its citizens. We are now almost halfway through our term in office, and we have achieved a number of the priorities we set ourselves.”

GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY The Municipality has drafted the Mangaung Growth and Development Strategy (GDS) 2040 as an aspirational long-term development framework for the Municipality. This

FREE STATE

strategy will assist the Municipality in frankly assessing itself and, thus, empower the City to see and envisage its future. Mangaung GDS 2040 will be a living document that will be amended periodically to stay abreast of the nuances of change, transformation and development within the region, the province, at a national, continental and global level. Going forward, Mangaung GDS 2040 will also be used to inform the subsequent five-year IDP plans of the Municipality. The City is aware that the desired future is only possible if programmed partnerships are forged with all stakeholders, given the finite resources at the state’s disposal and the absolute necessity of yielding maximum impact through collaboration. The Executive Mayor has appointed 17 Community Champions, who are working with the Municipality to identify how to facilitate community and stakeholder engagements and provide inputs for the revision and finalisation of the Mangaung GDS. The thematic sectoral workshops were organised around the following themes: • Economic development • Capital Infrastructure Development Plan and major infrastructure projects • Rural development • Environmental development • Poverty alleviation • City region and Smart City operations.

AIRPORT DEVELOPMENT NODE The Mangaung Municipality has earmarked the development of the airport as a significant priority. This development node, along the N8 Corridor, is expected to benefit the Municipality economically and financially. For Botshabelo and Thaba Nchu, the aerotropolis will boast services including a shopping mall, educational and civic sites, an urban square and an International Conference Centre, hotels, and mixed housing. The revenue generated from this massive project will be used for necessary cross-subsidisation of critical projects in Botshabelo and Thaba Nchu. While the entire area to be developed is 2 000 hectares, the first phase, which is currently being implemented, is only 700 hectares. This is about the size of the entire Above: Waaihoek cooling towers; Executive Mayor, Cllr Thabo Manyoni, testing the equipment used for turning soil at the airport development node.

BACKGROUND Origin of the name Mantsopa was a sister to King Moshoeshoe, who banished her from the Kingdom when he suspected that her powers were greater than his. When she arrived at Modderpoort there were no houses and she stayed in a cave. In 1886, a group of men called The Brotherhood of St Augustine arrived at Modderpoort, and Mantsopa accommodated them in her cave. The missionaries decided to stay and they turned the cave into a chapel. Mantsopa later joined the church and was baptized and given the name Anna. Mantsopa’s grave continues to be visited and offerings are still placed on or near it.

Sporting and cultural events are growing sectors of the tourism industry in the area. Heritage and historical attractions offer unique experiences to the tourists, especially the rock paintings and the cave church (Lekhalong la Nkhono Mantsopa). The majority of visitors are tourists sleeping in transit to the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and to the mountainous Lesotho Kingdom.

church town. The name changed to its current name in 1893.

THE MAYOR The mayor is Cllr Theko Mogoje. Born and raised in Bothaville, he started his early career as a convoy driver and also worked at a local company, LM. In the mid-70s, he got involved in the taxi industry and, following the 1976 uprising, joined Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK). During the period 1985 to 1988, he was a member of the then Bothaville Council, which relocated the old Kgotsong to the new site that is currently Nala. After 1988, he again concentrated on his business interest. He was elected as the Chairperson of Majakathata/Mahanapuso Long Distance Transport Association, both at local and provincial level. He was also elected into the Executive Committee of SANTACO, Free State, during this time and served as the Chairperson of Disciplinary Committee. ADMINISTRATIVE LEADERSHIP OF THE MUNICIPALITY In terms of relevant legislation governing the municipal sector, the Municipal Manager is the administrative head of the Local Municipality. As the accounting officer, the Municipal Manager has oversight responsibility for all managers. The Municipal Manager, in turn, accounts to the Executive Mayor and the Council on administrative matters. Mr Mokomela is the appointed Municipal Manager. SPATIAL DESCRIPTION OF THE MUNICIPALITY The Nala Local Municipality is situated in the northern part of the municipal region of the Lejweleputswa District Council. The Bothaville/Kgotsong area is located approximately 50km south of Klerksdorp, 80km north of Welkom, 200km southwest of Bothaville, and approximately 35km west of Welkom/ Odendaalsrus. The major towns that form part of Nala are Bothaville and Wesselsbron.

BOTHAVILLE LOCATION Bothaville is a maize farming town situated near the Vaal River in the Municipality. It is situated 6km east of the Vaal, on the banks of the Vals River tributary. HISTORY The area of present-day Bothaville was originally inhabited by Bushmen, while between the 15th and 17th century the Leghoyo Tswana tribe also settled in the area. Whites settled here permanently in 1852.

112

LGH2014_PROFILE_NALA.indd 112

It was laid out on the farm Gladdedrift, which was owned by Theunis Louis Botha. It became a municipality in 1914. The battle of Doornkraal took place south of the town on 6 November 1900. Doornkraal Monument is a granite memorial built in honour of the Boers who died there in the surprise attack by British soldiers. Some of the Boers were buried in a communal grave. Bothaville offers a number of buildings of historical interest. The town hall was declared a national monument in 1995, and there is also a museum in President Street. The oldest building in the maize capital is a small three-room sandstone building in President Street, erected in 1894 by the first town council to serve as a police station and prison.

ECONOMY Bothaville hosts the head office of Grain South Africa and produces an average of 550 000 tons of maize annually. Situated on the banks of the Vals River, the town is considered to be one of the richest agricultural communities in the country. The town forms one of the corners of the maize triangle. Other agricultural activities focus on dairy, wheat, sunflowers, nuts and vegetables. The town has a factory that manufactures agricultural machinery and tractors. Bothaville is strategically located close to the gold mining towns of Klerksdorp/Orkney.

WESSELSBRON LOCATION It is a small maize farming town 75km south of Bothaville in the Free State. The town is in close proximity to Welkom/ Odendaalsrus. The Vet River flows just south of the Wesselsbron district and forms the southern boundary of the Nala region. HISTORY It was named after the Boer Commandant Cornelius Wessels, who led the 1899 siege of Kimberley during the second Boer War. The first erven were sold as early as 1920 and the town was granted municipal status in 1936. ECONOMY A small town, serving a prosperous agricultural community, Wesselsbron boasts one of the largest grain silos in the Southern Hemisphere. The main agricultural activities include maize and cattle. The community of Wesselsbron has opened its farms and business to the tourist trade.

HOUSEHOLDS Gauteng is the smallest of South Africa’s provinces, covering an area of 18 178km2 or approximately 1.4% of the total surface area of South Africa. It is bordered by the Free State, North West, Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces. While being the smallest province, it is also the most populous, being home to 12 272 263 people. Gauteng lies on the highest part of the interior plateau on the rolling plains of South Africa’s Highveld. Its capital is Johannesburg and it also contains the city of Pretoria, as well as the East Rand, West Rand and Vaal areas. Gauteng continues to serve as the economic engine room of the country and the subcontinent, responsible for over 34.8% of the country’s GDP. Gauteng is the powerhouse of South Africa and the heart of its commercial business and industrial sectors. The most important sectors contributing to GDP are finance, real estate and business services; manufacturing; and general government services. Gauteng is also the financial services capital of Africa. More than 70 foreign banks have their head offices here, as do at least the same number of South African banks, stockbrokers and insurance giants. The major gold and diamond mining houses all have their headquarters in Johannesburg, the biggest being Anglo American and De Beers. Gold mining constitutes 80% of Gauteng’s mineral production output. Gauteng is divided into three metropolitan municipalities, the City of Johannesburg, the City of Tshwane and Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipalities, as well as two district municipalities, which are further subdivided into seven local municipalities.

GAUTENG

Area: 1 645km2 Description: City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality is located in Gauteng province. Johannesburg, also known as Jozi, Joburg or eGoli, is the largest city in South Africa. It is the provincial capital of Gauteng, the wealthiest province in South Africa, having the largest economy of any metropolitan region in Sub-Saharan Africa. The City is one of the 40 largest metropolitan areas in the world and is also the world’s largest city not situated on a river, lake or coastline. While Johannesburg is not officially one of South Africa’s three capital cities, it houses the Constitutional Court – South Africa’s highest court. It also includes Soweto, which was a separate city from the late 1970s until the 1990s. The City is the source of a large-scale gold and diamond trade, due to its location on the mineral-rich Witwatersrand range of hills. Johannesburg is served by OR Tambo International Airport, the largest and busiest airport in Africa and a gateway for international air travel to and from the rest of southern Africa. More recently, Lanseria International Airport has started hosting international flights and is situated conveniently on the opposite side of the metropolis. Gauteng is growing rapidly due to mass urbanisation. According to the State of the Cities Report, the urban portion of Gauteng – primarily comprising the cities of Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni (the East Rand) and Tshwane (greater Pretoria) – will be a polycentric urban region with a projected population of some 14,6 million people by 2015.

DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY

GAUTENG

Area: 6 368km2 Description: City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality is situated in the Gauteng province and Pretoria is the capital of South Africa. It has merged with Metsweding District, which was a consequence of the Gauteng Global City Region Strategy to reduce the number of municipalities in Gauteng to at least four by 2016. The new City of Tshwane is now the single-largest metropolitan municipality in the country, comprising seven regions, 105 wards and 210 councillors. Pretoria has the second-largest number of embassies in the world after Washington DC. Many embassies thus call this city their home. The Union Buildings house the administrative hub of the country and have also been the setting for the presidential inaugurations of Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki and the incumbent South African president, Jacob Zuma. These sandstone buildings offer beautiful views over the City. Its rich and colourful heritage is reflected in the City’s myriad museums, monuments and historical buildings, and is punctuated by contemporary arts and crafts markets, bringing the City alive with a unique blend of new and old. The Science and Technology Museum offers a tactile experience of science at work. The South African mint has a minting press dating back to 1892, that is still in operation. The City also offers township sleepovers with a five-star stay. Church Square and the State Theatre often host international and national performances. There are also two nature reserves where visitors can view wildlife such as buffalo, antelope, cheetah, jackal, giraffe and sable.

SPECIALISED CREDIT BEARING COURSES Service Administration

National Diploma: Public Finance Management and Administration (SAQA ID 49554, NQF Level 5)

The purpose of the qualification is to provide a structured programme for public officials that work with senior management officials so as to provide support to strategic leadership and management needed to transform all spheres of government. The need for well-qualified efficient, client-oriented public officials is therefore identified as a priority in all the three spheres of government. The National Diploma in Public Finance Management and Administration (NQF level 5) is aimed at practitioners working in the public sector. It is a qualification in a career pathway towards an accomplished public finance management and administration specialist. Accreditation LGSETA will include the learner details in the National Learner Record Database (NLRD) upon successful completion of the Unit Standards. Learner record uploading is subject to strict assessment, moderation and verification processes and as such the final issuing of results and certificates may be delayed. Although the Local Government SETA is accredited to quality assure delivery of this qualification, a Memorandum of Understanding between LG SETA and the Public Service SETA allows PSETA to quality assure the qualification in the National and Provincial Government spheres, while LG SETA will quality assure Local Government providers. However, learner results from providers for the National and Provincial Government spheres will be uploaded and reflected against the LG SETA. U/S ID

Area: 1 975km Description: Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality covers an extensive area from Germiston in the west to Springs and Nigel in the east. The former administrations of the nine towns in the former East Rand were amalgamated into the metropolitan municipality, along with the Khayalami Metropolitan Council and the Eastern Gauteng Services Council. It is one of the most densely populated areas in the province, and the country. The economy in the region is larger and more diverse than that of many small countries in Africa. It accounts for nearly a quarter of Gauteng’s economy, which in turn contributes over a third of the national Gross Domestic Product. Many of the factories for production of goods and commodities are located in Ekurhuleni, often referred to as “Africa’s Workshop”. The network of roads, airports, rail lines, telephones, electricity grids and telecommunications found in Ekurhuleni rivals that of Europe and America. It can be regarded as the transportation hub of the country. It is home to OR Tambo International Airport; South Africa’s largest railway hub; a number of South Africa’s modern freeways and expressways; the Maputo Corridor Development; direct rail, road and air links connecting Ekurhuleni to Durban; the Blue IQ projects, with linkages to the City Deep Container terminal; the planned Gautrain rapid rail link to Johannesburg and Pretoria; and the OR Tambo International Airport Industrial Development Zone (IDZ).

remains the industrial centre of Gauteng province. The municipality is 40km away from Johannesburg and 80km away from Pretoria, without the high traffic volumes. Sedibeng offers the best opportunity for growth and development as a result of availability of land for both residential and commercial development in a picturesque and tranquil setting. The Vaal University of Technology and the North-West University’s Vaal Campus offer a wide range of graduates that provide the bulwark of employees for business and industries that seek to set up operations in Sedibeng. The Sedibeng District Municipality is a Category C municipality. It is the only area of the Gauteng province that is situated on the banks of the Vaal River and Vaal Dam in the southernmost part of the province, covering the area formerly known as the Vaal Triangle. It includes the towns of Vereeniging, Vanderbijlpark, Meyerton and Heidelberg, as well as the historic townships of Evaton, Sebokeng, Boipatong, Bophelong, Sharpeville and Ratanda, which have a rich political history and heritage. The municipality is a stones throw from Johannesburg along the scenic Vaal, Klip and Suikerbos Rivers. Sedibeng has a variety of attractions offering a vast cultural heritage and historical experience including, amongst others, the political breakthroughs that led to the country’s political turnabout. The Sedibeng region boasts several Heritage Sites related to the South African War of 1899-1902 and the two World Wars that followed. The Sharpeville Memorial Precinct stands as a reminder of the Sharpeville Massacre of 21 March 1960, when 69 people lost their lives while protesting the pass laws of the then apartheid South Africa. Sedibeng is the fourth-largest contributor to the Gauteng economy. The municipal economy reached a high of 7.2% in 2006. The predominant economic sector in the district is the manufacturing of fabricated metal and chemicals. In the metal sector, the Arcelor-Mittal Steel plant, the Cape Gate Davsteel Wire and Steel plant, and the Ferromanganese plant of Samancor are the three main large baseline plants in the district, whilst DCDDorbyl Heavy Engineering is the biggest manufacturer of engineered products in Southern Africa.

Area: 4 087km2 Description: West Rand District Municipality is located in the west of the Gauteng province. The Cradle of Humankind falls under the jurisdiction of Mogale City and Merafong City, and forms part of the World Heritage Site. The West Rand extends from Randfontein (the seat of the district) in the west to Roodepoort in the east, and includes the town of Krugersdorp. It is bordered by Bojanala Platinum to the north-west, City of Tshwane to the north-east, City of Johannesburg to the east, Sedibeng to the south-east and Dr Kenneth Kaunda to the south-west. The municipality is situated relatively closely to the hub of economic activity in Gauteng, and is transversed by major national roads, namely the N12 and N14. Its main contribution lies primarily within the mining sector, however, areas such as Krugersdorp fulfil a residential function for many people working in Johannesburg. The West Rand remains the poorest region contributing to Gauteng’s GDP. The leadership of West Rand District Municipality has a new vision that entails dissolving the four local municipalities in the district into a single municipality by 2016. Vision 2016 includes a holistic approach to environmental concerns. There are opportunities for developing economies to benefit from climate change mitigation strategies and the West Rand will be making a strong case for private investors to assist in the growth of green and sustainable industries.

GAUTENG

Area: 1 631km2 Description: Merafong City Local Municipality is situated within the West Rand District Municipality in Gauteng. Its boundaries enclose some of the richest gold mines in the world. It is situated about 65km from Johannesburg and is serviced by a number of major roads, including the N12 from Johannesburg to Cape Town and the N14 (the main road between Gauteng and Mahikeng (Mafikeng) via Ventersdorp). Formerly a cross-border municipality, the entire municipality was transferred to the North West province following the abolition of cross-border municipalities by an amendment to the South African Constitution in 2005. The municipality was part of the North West province from 2005 to 2009, when it was reincorporated into the Gauteng province by another amendment to the Constitution, following often violent protests in the township of Khutsong. Merafong’s historical development is closely knit with the discovery of rich gold deposits in the early 1930s. Fochville is the oldest town in the region, and was declared a town in 1951. The town Carletonville was named after Guy Carleton Jones, an engineer from the Gold Fields Ltd mining company, who played a prominent role in the discovery of the West Wits gold field, of which Carletonville forms a part. The mining company decided, in November 1946, to establish the town. Carletonville was proclaimed in 1948 and attained Town Council Status on 1 July 1959. Wedela is situated between Western Deep Levels and Elandsrand mines. The town’s name is derived from the prefixes of the two mines: the “Wed-” from Western Deep Levels and the “-ela” from Elandsrand. Wedela was established as a mining village in December 1978 by Harry Oppenheimer, and municipal status was granted to the town on 1 January 1990.

To the north, west and south it borders onto Madibeng, Rustenburg and Randfontein Local Municipalities respectively. The West Rand District Management Area lies within the central-northern part of Mogale City. This area comprises the bulk of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site. Mogale City’s strongest functional urban linkage is with the City of Johannesburg. Krugersdorp and the greater Kagiso area, Mogale City’s primary urban complex, forms part of a band of development stretching from the Johannesburg

METRO MUNICIPALITY

Inner City westwards along the mining belt up to Krugersdorp. The strongest east-west transport linkages between Mogale City and Johannesburg are along the R512, as well as the east-west railway line. Mogale City is linked to the City of Tshwane via the R28/N14 highway. The largest part of Mogale City is rural in nature, with a specific urban concentration in the south-eastern part of the municipality where it interfaces with the Gauteng urban complex. The rural environment is characterised by prominent features: the Magaliesberg and Witwatersberg Ranges in the north-west. Rural towns in Mogale City are Tarlton, Magaliesburg and Hekpoort, located in the west. Urban concentration is found in the southeastern part around Krugersdorp and Kagiso. The Krugersdorp CBD is the main business, social and administrative centre and fulfils a regional function. The areas around Krugersdorp are established middle-to-high income residential areas with the full range of urban amenities, services and facilities. The areas to the south of Krugersdorp, namely Kagiso, Azaadville and Rietvallei (referred to as the Kagiso complex), are predominantly disadvantaged settlements with more limited access to services and facilities. The Kagiso complex is physically separated from Krugersdorp’s urban areas by an extensive mining belt that runs roughly in an east-west direction through the area.

COGTA:

Changing the face of municipalities in Gauteng

“I am proud and delighted to acknowledge a committed and hard-working team of staff for our Department which continues to support our municipalities in improved service delivery and in making the lives of our communities better, thus making Gauteng a better place to live,” says the Acting Head of Department. The Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA) is tasked with the responsibility of supporting all municipalities and traditional councils in Gauteng. The respective Support and Monitoring Programmes of the department are aimed at promoting and supporting effective, accountable and developmental local government as articulated in the Provincial Outcome 7 and the National Outcome 9. Collectively, these programmes seek to ensure that municipalities have the relevant institutional and technical capacity to deliver quality services to communities, as well as the fulfilment of their respective constitutional and policy mandates. The ocal Government s mandate, as enshrined in the Constitution, is to: • Provide democratic and accountable government for local communities • Ensure the provision of services to communities in a sustainable manner • Promote social and economic development • Encourage the involvement of communities and community organisations in the matters of local government The Department has four Strategic Goals which are: To strengthen and align the Department s administrative capability and performance to deliver on its mandate • Promote equitable access to government services and socioeconomic opportunities / promote integrated development and planning for improved access to basic services • Promote and facilitate viable and sustainable traditional affairs • Promote stable, democratic and accountable local government In government inherited a segregated and racially defined model of local government, with stark inequalities in standards

GauntengGovernment.indd 1

Ms Itumeleng Mokate Acting Head of Department

of municipal services. It was evident that such remnants of apartheid management and service delivery would not be viable in the New South Africa. The transformation of local government needed to address these discrepancies and inequalities in municipal services in order to build a responsive, accountable and democratic local government. Gauteng municipalities are challenged by the growing demand for basic services created by the complexities of in-migration, such as growing informal settlements and new township establishments as people move into the province for better economic opportunities. Furthermore, the absence of common baseline data on demand and methods to measure new demand means that the goal posts are shifted year upon year for municipalities. This creates a negative perception about the speed of municipal service delivery. In under 20 years, government has created functional and effective metropolitan types of municipalities, that have proven to be the best model of municipal configuration for the province going forward. The Gauteng City Region (GCR) Perspective remains one of the key policy thrusts for the province of Gauteng. For CoGTA, the move towards a single-tier system of local government for the province continues to be at the centre of our policy and advocacy work. We view the realisation of a single-tier system of local government as one of the most critical local governance areas that can help improve the functioning of our municipalities and hence improve the overall delivery of essential municipal services. Gauteng s economy provides multiple interdependencies with other provinces and the need to facilitate vibrant economic corridors with neighbouring provinces puts Gauteng at an advantage to realise the City Region vision. In Gauteng province, three cases for redetermination of municipal boundaries were confirmed. These were • The redetermined municipal boundaries of Randfontein and Westonaria Local Municipalities by amalgamating them into a single category B local municipality. • The redetermination of municipal boundaries of Emfuleni and Midvaal Local Municipalities into Sedibeng District Municipality

2013/12/09 11:21 AM


amalgamating them into a single, category A, metropolitan municipality. • Lesedi Local Municipality will be included into Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality.

over the past financial year, the Department worked towards addressing these challenges, which included enhancing skills and the need for the full time appointment of chairpersons of these committees.

The Department has adopted a differentiated approach in terms of dealing with challenges and issues identified in municipalities.

Traditional Affairs

The roll-out of the Municipal Infrastructure Support Agency (MISA) created an opportunity for the Provincial Department to engage in a diagnostic analysis process in five of the local municipalities (Lesedi, Randfontein, Westonaria, Mogale City and Merafong) where a holistic assessment of the municipalities was completed. With the invigoration of the Local Government Turnaround Strategy (LGTAS) the process was enhanced by creating action plans per municipality as well as an Integrated Action Plan for the Province. This has enabled the Department to have a focused approach in dealing with challenges identified in municipalities. One of the key aspects for running efficient and effective municipalities is proper planning and thorough management of performance, and enhancement thereof. The Performance Management System (PMS) forms part of a strategic management approach within a municipality that is aimed at ensuring that the organisation is strategically led, and that key systems such as planning, budgeting and performance management are integrated. This approach enables municipalities to plan and budget better, monitor and measure performance more effectively, and report on achievements in a transparent manner. The PMS is the primary mechanism municipalities utilise to monitor the progress made in achieving the objectives set out in the Integrated Development Programme (IDP). In addition, the PMS must also facilitate increased accountability, learning and improvement, provide early warning signals, and facilitate decision-making. Access to basic services such as water, electricity and sanitation have enormously improved. The demand of addressing decaying infrastructure and the need to provide sustainable infrastructure into the future, puts Gauteng municipalities in a challenging position that needs to integrate their infrastructure plans not only to serve their own constituencies but to be able to accommodate the future needs of the inhabitants of the province as a whole. The department facilitates, in partnership with all stakeholders, the process to ensure that Gauteng municipalities realise intergrated planning in their goal of sustainable infrastructure development that promotes a City Region with capabilities to meet current and future infrastructure needs of its inhabitants.

The Gauteng Traditional Leadership and Governance Act No 4 of 2010: The Act provides for the recognition of traditional communities as well as the establishment and recognition of traditional councils. It provides a statutory framework for leadership positions within the institutions of traditional leadership; functions and roles of traditional leaders; the removal from office of traditional leaders; a house of traditional leaders; and the establishment of the Commission on Traditional Leadership Disputes and Claims. The past year has been a rather eventful one in the institution of traditional leadership in Gauteng. The province welcomed the confirmation of Ikosi MP Mahlangu of the Amandebele Nzunza Sokhulumi and Kgosi KC Kekana of the Amandebele ba Lebelo in the Gauteng Province. Between December 2012 and January 2013 a notice proclaiming the Amakhosi in Gauteng was certified and published. CoGTA will continue to support traditional leadership in implementing the responsibilities entrusted to them. Public Participation and Ward Committee Support Public participation is fundamental to good governance. The role of ward committees is very important as they are the key contact structures between municipalities and the residents. They play a critical role in maintaining an efficient governance system within the ward. Communication, consultation and feedback with all residents stabilises ward governance. In order for ward committees to function optimally, ward committees and community structures require the necessary capacity building and support. The department will continue to explore creative means with municipalities to enhance the quality and forms of public participation to realise a stable local government.

Municipal Oversight Committees Local communities have more than often expressed their concern about service delivery and the lack of accountability within local government. It is with this in mind that the work towards building a culture of accountability in the local sphere of government is imperative and underpins the drive to enhance municipal service delivery and restoring confidence in our municipalities. In 2009 the Department initiated a study identifying the strengths and challenges of oversight committees across the province and

CITY OF JOHANNESBURG POSTAL: PO Box 1049, Johannesburg, 2000 PHYSICAL: 158 Civic Boulevard, Braamfontein, Johannesburg TEL: 011 407 6111 | FAX: 011 403 8723 WEB: www.joburg.org.za

JOHANNESBURG, AN AFRICAN POWERHOUSE Johannesburg, also known as Joburg, Jozi or Egoli (“Place of Gold”), is the economic engine of the South African economy. Over 55 international airlines link the City to major centres worldwide, making Johannesburg one of the most accessible centres on the African continent. One of Johannesburg’s major competitive advantages is its international recognition as the business and commercial capital of the continent. Given its accessibility by air, that 75% of corporate headquarters are based in the City, and being the only city in South Africa that boasts four of the venues capable of hosting more than 5 000 delegates, Johannesburg’s success as a tourist destination pivots on business. Joburg is open for business – and it has the capacity to host events across a spectrum of size, scope and price. The conventions bureau team is also primed to assist with supplying all the necessary advice and support services relating to meetings, conventions, exhibitions and incentives. Johannesburg is a versatile business and mega-events destination. Now proudly taking its place as Africa’s second-largest city, Joburg is growing at an unprecedented rate – constantly and continuously transforming itself. It is seen not only Cllr Parks Tau Executive Mayor

as the economic hub of the continent but also as offering a plethora of cultural, leisure, sporting, fashion and lifestyle activities that is fast making it the leading destination for both leisure and business tourists. Joburg’s legendary shopping, dining, entertainment and nightlife is complimented by fabulous weather, as well as an astonishing array of

GAUTENG

facilities like spectacular golf courses, gyms, spas, and wellness centres. With excellent infrastructure, unique transport features (like the high-speed Gautrain and the Rea Vaya Bus Rapid Transit system), increased hotel inventory, spectacular stadiums and magnificent architecture, it is no wonder that Johannesburg was voted the world’s third-best city in Wallpaper magazine’s Wallpaper Design Awards in early 2011. Its popularity among world travellers is in the ascendancy. The City showed a 53.6% growth in the number of international visitors between 2009 and 2013, propelling it to a spot in the MasterCard Index’s top 20 fastest-growing cities in the world. With a projected 2,54 million international travellers expected to visit Johannesburg in 2013, the City is set to become the most popular tourist destination in Africa. Johannesburg also comes out tops in Africa in terms of international visitor spending, with $2,7 billion estimated to be injected into the City in 2013. The City is recognised as the financial capital of South Africa and is home to 74% of corporate headquarters. South Africa’s only stock exchange, the Johannesburg Securities Exchange (JSE) rates as one of the top 20 exchanges in the world in terms of market capitalisation. The City’s profusion of trees, approximately six million, make it the largest man-made forest in the world. Joburg’s climate is temperate (neither humid nor too hot for comfort) and there is yearround sunshine and daily clear, blue skies. Winters are short and mild.

A CITY THAT BOASTS MANY FIRSTS The first African city to host the C40 Climate Summit, a network of cities from around the world committed to sustainable climate-related actions; the first to host the Metropolis, a meeting of the world’s premier mayors dedicated to delivering a high quality of life in their cities; the first to host One Young World Summit 2013, a forum where young people from across the world formulate solutions for pressing issues; and the first to host both the opening and closing matches of the 2010 FIFA™ World Cup.

corridors, the provision of transport like Rea Vaya will enable fast, safe and affordable mobility along the corridors. These corridors are dubbed “Corridors of Freedom”, giving residents increased freedom of movement as well as economic freedom – liberating them from apartheid spatial legacy characterised by informal settlements, poor schooling and limited recreational spaces.

THE KEY FEATURES OF CORRIDORS OF FREEDOM • Safe neighbourhoods designed for cycling and walking, with sufficient facilities and attractive street conditions • Safe, complete streets with features to calm traffic, control vehicle traffic speeds and discourage the use of private transport • Mixed-use developments where residential areas, office parks,

THE LONG-TERM IMPACT The development of dedicated transport corridors holds a number of advantages for Joburg: • The City will focus productive land use and economic activities in areas where transport infrastructure – both rail and road – are already present or being planned • The demand for private motorised transport will be reduced and the average trip length will be shortened • Public transport will become a viable alternative because residents will live in closer proximity to work, shopping and leisure opportunities • High-density housing will stimulate opportunities for the SMME sector and smallscale operators in the informal economy • The environmental impact of public transport in high-density areas will be significantly smaller than in the case of low-density urban sprawl reliant on private cars • Residents will benefit because they will not have to spend so much time and money

on transport • Learners will benefit because they will be closer to their schools • Unemployed people will benefit because it will be easier to get to places to look for work • Factories will benefit because workers will be able to get to work on time • Shopping centres and hawkers along the corridors and nodes will benefit due to an increased number of people passing their shops • The environment (and our lungs) will benefit from less individual private car use and the dangerous carbon emissions that they emit • Construction and other related industries will benefit because of the job opportunities throughout the lifetime of the project.

HEARING THE VOICES OF PEOPLE For the average Joburger, the option to live in close proximity to public transport facilities with easy access to the City and to make use of an improved transport system will be a life-changing experience. Gone will be the days of being forced to rise at dawn to catch a train, bus or taxi to a place of work. Gone will be the days of returning to your home late in the evening, unable to share a family meal or spend quality time together with your spouse and children. The Corridors of Freedom will usher in a new era of access to opportunity and a choice for residents to work, stay and play within the same space without the inconvenience and high costs of travelling over long distances every day. The majority of South Africans have been forced by apartheid social engineering to live on the outskirts of cities and towns. In terms of these policies, they were temporary sojourners, fit only to provide cheap labour to industry and commerce, unable to share in the fruit of their production.

INTERVIEW: CONDUCIVE CONDITIONS FOR INVESTMENT Johannesburg is a financial hub with enormous investment potential. The Mayor, Parks Tau, expands on the City’s unique selling points. BIOGRAPHY Mpho Franklyn (Parks) Tau played a leadership role in student politics from a young age. At 25, he was a driving force in the processes that eventually led to a united Johannesburg. As a member of the mayoral committee, Parks helped develop the City’s plans for Spatial Development, Environmental Management and Integrated Transport. In 2004, he was given the responsibility for finance and economic development and in 2011 became the Mayor of Johannesburg.

GAUTENG

Please give an overview of the Corridors of Freedom. It is the creation of well-planned socio-economic arteries or “Corridors of Freedom” linked to interchanges where the focus would be on mixed-use development: high-density accommodation supported by office buildings, industrial and retail development, and opportunities for leisure and recreation. The aim is to re-stitch the City and create a different future for Joburg’s residents, where jobs can be linked to people and people to jobs. Because the developments are along transport corridors, the provision of transport like Rea Vaya will enable fast, safe and affordable mobility along the corridors. The “Corridors of Freedom” will give the City’s residents increased freedom of movement as well as economic freedom; this will liberate them from apartheid’s spatial legacy of informal settlements, poor schooling and limited recreational spaces. It will give rise to a people-centred city where the needs of communities and their safety, comfort and economic well-being are placed at the core of planning and delivery processes. It will result in reduced poverty for the majority of residents, who are currently spending a large percentage of their income on transport. How will the corridors be beneficial for investors? Corridors are economic nodes well serviced with infrastructure to make conditions conducive for investment. These will have sector-specific clusters for sideways, backwards and forward linkages in the economic value chain. What draws investment to this city? Investment is drawn to the City because of the City’s strategic location quotient relative to its markets. Joburg is the secondlargest city on the continent, with 30% of the world’s mineral reserves. It has access to one billion people and it is an ideal base for SADC. SA’s free trade agreement with SADC, EU, AGOA, Mercosur, etc positions the City as a strategic location for investment. OR Tambo International in Johannesburg is the continent’s biggest and busiest airport. Joburg has sophisticated financial markets with regulation supervision. The Johannesburg Stock Exchange is the 15th-largest in the world. The City has approximately 70 foreign banks and is the country’s largest metropolitan economy, generating 17% of SA’s wealth and 48% of Gauteng’s economic output. Joburg possesses the highest number of economically active people and has the highest proportion of formal sector employment. What infrastructure does the City have? There is an advanced road, rail and air network around Joburg. The City Deep Transport Logistics Hub is Africa’s largest inland port and the Joburg market is the largest container depot in South Africa and the largest fresh produce market in Africa. The City has world-class ICT companies investing in it, e.g. Google, SAP, HP, IBM, and Nokia.

142

LGH2014_PROFILE_JHB.indd 142

85% of the telecommunication sector’s activities are in Joburg. We are the country’s fourth fastest-growing GSM cellphone market globally (50% per annum), with 34 million active mobile handsets, 70% data capability and two-thirds of the country’s top ISPs based in Joburg.

What other sectors are prominent? Joburg has the richest and biggest agricultural market in the continent and is the major exporter of fruit and vegetables. Joburg is the gold and diamond beneficiation centre of Africa. Our benefaction focus area is jewellery, with Jewel City located in the CBD. Comment on Joburg’s quality of life. Joburg has excellent living standards and medical services, and has world-class living conditions with superb recreational and cultural assets. It is also a beautiful international tourist destination. How do you promote investment opportunities? The City has highly educated and experienced personnel with international backgrounds and experience with strategic international networks. The City promotes its investment opportunities through 138 embassies and commercial attachés as well as targeted strategic local and international media, including World Economic and Commonwealth Business Forums. Please give an overview of some of the key investment projects happening now. • Waterfall: R25 billion • Century: R30 billion. This project will create about 20 000 jobs • Newtown: R1.5 billion • Linbro Precinct - Triton Express: R190 million. This project will create about 500 jobs - Gold Leaf: R588 million. This project will create about 700 jobs - Cold Chain: R225 million - Escow: R75 million. This project will create about 120 jobs - Premier Foods: R75 million. This project will create about 700 jobs - Midas: R250 million. This project will create about 700 jobs • Baragwanath: R150 million. This project will create about 300 jobs • Red Carpet: R150 million. This project will create about 300 jobs. How will these projects help to achieve the end results or goals set out in the GDS 2040 Strategy?

LABOUR FORCE KwaZulu-Natal is located in the south-east of South Africa bordering the Indian Ocean. It also borders on the Eastern Cape, Free State and Mpumalanga provinces, as well as Lesotho, Swaziland and Mozambique. The “Garden Province” of South Africa stretches from the lush subtropical east coast washed by the warm Indian Ocean, to the sweeping savanna in the east and the majestic Drakensberg Mountain Range in the west. It covers an area of 94 361km2, the third-smallest in the country, and has a population of 10 267 300, making it the second most populous province in South Africa. The capital is Pietermaritzburg. The largest city is Durban. Other major cities and towns include Richards Bay, Port Shepstone, Newcastle, Estcourt, Ladysmith and Richmond. The province’s manufacturing sector is the largest in terms of contribution to GDP. Richards Bay is the centre of operations for South Africa’s aluminium industry. The Richards Bay Coal Terminal is instrumental in securing the country’s position as the second-largest exporter of steam coal in the world. The province has undergone rapid industrialisation owing to its abundant water supply and labour resources. Agriculture is also central to the economy. The sugar cane plantations along the coastal belt are the mainstay of KwaZulu-Natal’s agriculture. The coastal belt is also a large producer of subtropical fruit, while the farmers inland concentrate on vegetable, dairy and stock farming. Another source of income is forestry in the areas around Vryheid, Eshowe, Richmond, Harding and Ngome. KwaZulu-Natal is divided into one metropolitan municipality (eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality) and 10 district municipalities, which are further subdivided into 50 local municipalities.

GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY

INCHANGA

Area: 2 291km2 Description: eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality is a Category A municipality found in the South African province of KwaZuluNatal. The area is topographically hilly, with many gorges and ravines and almost no true coastal plain. Durban has a turbulent history dating from ivory hunters in the 1820s and their conflict with the local Zulu monarchs. The province has the largest number of battlefields. The world-class International Convention Centre in Durban has hosted a historic line-up of events, including conferences on a global scale. eThekwini is the largest city in this province and the third-largest city in the country. It is a sophisticated, cosmopolitan city and is known as the home of Africa’s best-managed, busiest port. It is also a major centre of tourism because of the City’s warm, subtropical climate and extensive beaches. Its land area is comparatively larger than that of other South African cities. Durban Tourism is the leading domestic destination in South Africa. The estimated visitor number for the financial year 2010/11 is 9,95 million. The value of the domestic tourism economic impact on the region’s GDP is estimated to be 8% per annum. The hospitality industry consists of many fine hotels, nightspots, shopping malls, ethnic attractions, traditional villages, craft markets, sparkling dams, and big-game parks.
