Government’s BEE plans

 

Moenie vir een oomblik  dink dat swart bemagtiging gaan verdwyn nie, nog minder gaan onteiening van die toneel verdwyn.  Ook op die landbou front is die swart vennootskap die meerderheid.    Hierdie “beplannings” was reeds lankal beplan deur blanke liberaliste gedurende die Dakar samesprekings wat met die kommuniste skouers geskuur het.   Om te boer, is vandag ‘n besigheid nes enige ander maatskappy of organisasie.

Besighede word soort van verplig as hul hul deure wil oophou, daar aan die kommunistiese regering se beplande wetgewing voldoen moet word.   Dis hulle voorwaardes en hulle regeer.

Dit kom daarop neer dat die eens sagte teikens en veral blanke minderhede, beroof word van menswaardigheid tot “oorgawe” sonder noemenswaardige skokgolwe.    Daar word heelwat militante, geweldadige en gedwonge besettings gedoen in die media.  Dalk om die aandag af te lei, maar sonder dat ons ingelig word, verg dit soms net ‘n bietjie leeswerk of navorsing op die internet.

Onthou gerus die spreukwoord:  die makste hond byt die seerste.

Heelwat swart bemagtiging wetgewing is nie daar om ons as blanke volk op te hef nie en ongelukkig word sommiges gebruik om die doelwitte te bereik.   Die regering gebruik alles in hul mag om ons volk te vernietig – en daar is feitlik geen politieke party wat tans in parlement is, wat nie B-BBEE steun nie.   Ramaphosa het ‘n hele kommissie wat hom vir dekades steun om hierdie wetgewings te vervaardig en ook uit te voer – in opdrag van bo af.   Dus, stem vir enige een van hulle of selfs in koalisie, beteken dit eenvoudig jy steun swart bemagtiging om jou eie volk te vernietig.  Dis die realiteite en die ware feite.

Werk onder die radar en steun volkseie besighede – bemark, koop en verkoop self  .   Skep geleenthede vir eie volksgenote waar moontlik en doen opleiding wat ontsettend belangrik is.  Ons voorouers het basies onder dieselfde tipe hel deurgemaak voor en na die Anglo Boere oorlog as alles in diepte bestudeer word.  Swart bemagtiging is ‘n metode wat gebruik word om ons volk en oorlewing totaal en al uit te wis.

Steun jou eie volk se oorlewing – steun Front Nasionaal vir volle soewereine onafhanklike gebiede.

This was 2017

The Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies, has gazetted the Amended AgriBEE Sector Code for implementation by entities in both public and private sector. Davies says that the sector code will serve as guidelines for the transformation of the agricultural sector. It replaces the old AgriBEE Sector Code which was gazetted in December 2012.

The scope of application of the Amended AgriBEE Sector Code includes:
• The primary production of agricultural products;

• The provision of inputs and services to enterprises engaged in the production of agricultural products;

• The beneficiation of agricultural products whether of a primary or semi-beneficiated form; and

• The storage, distribution, and/or trading and allied activities related to non-beneficiated agricultural products.

Minister Davies adds that generally targets of the Amended AgriBEE Sector Code are higher than the ones of the Generic Code.

Increased target for supplier development

“One of the key highlights of the Amended AgriBEE Sector code is an increase of the target for supplier development to 3% of Net Profit After Tax (NPAT) (which is higher than 2% of NPAT of the Generic Codes). The aim is to create a pipeline of black suppliers and black industrialists within the value chain of the South African agricultural industry,” indicates Minister Davies.

According to Minister Davies, the Amended AgriBEE Sector Code is recognising initiatives that will enhance the sector.

“In addition to strengthening the drive towards creating black suppliers, black commercial farmers and black industrialists, enhanced recognition is given to initiatives that result in Greenfield ventures, job creation and beneficiation of primary products, support for land reform projects, and support for localisation of goods and services not being produced in SA currently,” says the minister.

30% land ownership target

Furthermore, and in support of land reform process, the sector code makes a provision for the current owners of land to transfer at least 30% of productive agricultural land to black people under the ownership element. The 30% land ownership target is not static and therefore it shall be reviewed from time to time.

Minister Rob Davies urges all entities, verification agencies, associations, sub-sectors organisations and unions in the agricultural sector to report annually to the AgriBEE Sector Charter Council on their B-BBEE status and transformation achievements. The AgriBEE Sector Charter Council is the body that has been appointed by the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries to monitor implementation of this sector code.

Quote of what Ernst Janovsky explained

“Enterprises supplying government agencies, such as prisons and hospitals, with food, might lose their contracts, if they do not meet satisfactory levels of compliance with the Act,” Janovsky said.

The South African government is in the process of finalising the release of the realigned AgriBEE Sector Codes to rate agricultural businesses’ level of compliance to the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Amendment Act, which aims to facilitate the meaningful inclusion and participation of previously disadvantaged citizens in the country’s economy. This, in turn, should unlock new business and market opportunities for small-scale farmers and other enterprises in the value chain, according to independent economist, Ernst Janovsky.

He added that the government might also use an enterprise’s level of compliance to grant access to certain export permits and quotas, or even water rights and land, in the future. The Regulation of Agricultural Land Holdings Bill is already heading this way. It proposes to prohibit foreign agricultural land ownership unless land is bought in partnership with a black South African, who should have the majority share in the land.

Enterprises with an annual turnover below R10 million are considered an exempted micro-enterprise and automatically obtain a level 4 compliance. However, other companies and market forces might pressure them to practice BEE to benefit their own ratings through the preferential procurement element. According to Janovsky, non-compliance (when a scorecard measures lower than level 8) might also negatively affect the public image of a company and result in consumers, who are becoming more aware of ethical and responsible business practices, buying their food elsewhere.

Dr. Mandala Buthelezi, deputy president of the African Farmers Association of South Africa (AFASA), said that black farmers were enthusiastic about the potential of the B-BBEE Act to enhance the livelihoods of small-scale farmers. Most of them struggle to make ends meet and lack access to formal market structures. The Act, however, will not make a difference overnight.

“It will take a long time to help small-scale farmers break out of the poverty trap,” he said. Through the incentive to score points on the preferential procurement element of the score card, companies are spending more on supplier development and enterprise development, which includes assistance to small-scale farmers and enterprises.

Buthelezi said their biggest struggles were to reach the three prerequisites to supply formal market structures, namely the right quality of produce, consistent supplies and sufficient volumes. “Farmers could work together to reach the volume target, but quality was a great obstacle,” he said.

He explained that many of these farmers did not have the skill or the financial resources to supply the market with the kind of produce that receive top prices.    “If we go to the fresh produce market, we simply have to take the price offered by the market. The cost of production and our low profit margins are not taken into account,” he said.    Supplying big retailers was also more difficult than supplying the fresh produce markets.

“We just hope to break into the fresh produce markets,” he said. “Formal retailers are pie in the sky, since regulations to supply this market is even more stringent than to supply fresh produce markets. The retail market is like the holy grail for most of us.”

Buthelezi said that the B-BBEE Act might help to salvage the situation in various ways because retailers and fresh produce markets are obliged to assist small-scale suppliers. They do so through training or mentoring to produce food that complies with their strict quality and food and safety standards. Big commercial farmers might also go into partnership with small-scale farmers to secure their markets, which, in effect, will unlock new markets for small-scale farmers. The collective spending requirement, as per the Skills development element of the score card, could also benefit the industry greatly in the respect.
