District-Centred Development Model – Khawuleza

First things first – there were promises made before, during and after the 1994 elections. Where are those promises since 1994, the services, the RDP houses with real taps and water, with toilets, electricity, businesses and employment to the South African citizens?   Where is all the corruption money, the state capture, Guptas, arms deals, etc.   What happened to all the money, the budgets, the tenders to make the promises happen?

Eerste dinge eerste, waar is al die beloftes wat die ANC sedert 1994 belowe het?  Soos onder andere HOP gedienste huise, met behoorlike toilette en water, elektrisiteit, besighede en werkverskaffing aan alle Suid-Afrikaners?   Waar is al die korrupsiegeld heen en hoekom is daar geen misdadiger wat so geld gesteel het, gevang en behoorlik vervolg nie?  

Suid-Afrika is verby rommelstatus en niemand glo hierdie regering meer in wat hul doen na die “virus” nie.   Sien mense hoe word van die korrupsie toegesmeer, munisipaliteite wat bankrot is, waar geld eenvoudig verdwyn het, word “vervang” met net nog ‘n nuwe model.   Die plan sluit blankes uit.  Dis gebou op swart bemagtiging wetgewing (B-BBEE)

“Development of One Plans” – Ramaphosa

*

Ramaphosa on 17 September 2019  “The state is not just a conveyor belt of service delivery; it must play an active role in driving development and opening up the economy. This we can do by focusing on the 7 priorities we have identified as a country. We don’t just want our cities to be Mecca’s of economic opportunity, but our towns, villages and townships as well. It is in these areas where the unemployed youth of our country live.”

Khawuleza is promised to address economic development challenges through the alignment of precise planning across government departments and co-working efficiently with social partners.

“The model prioritises social partnerships and collaboration with all sectors of society and communities in addressing service delivery bottlenecks. The model aims to strengthen community participation and advocates for cohesive communities.”

2018
Of South Africa’s 257 municipalities that were audited, only 16 improved while 45 slid backwards. Only 33 municipalities (13%) managed to produce quality financial statements and performance reports and complied with all key legislation‚ thus receiving a clean audit.

Lack of accountability shows in MFMA audit results

The various ministers of parliament during different times after 1994, like Finance (and SARS), Local Governments, President, as well as Mayors / CEO / Councillors of Metro Councils and Councils, the different Auditors, the police and hawks are not anywhere during those annual reports – There are no policing or responsibilities with public money and no services at the end?

Is that the whole plan of the different members of parliament (president and his right hand zuma) to “close” down the corruption box, think that the moneys that disappears will never came back.  Now the same people in charge want to create a “district plan” – to repeat itself?

2019
Salga was up in arms over the municipal cost containment regulations. These include getting rid of credit cards and clamping down on catering, mayoral vehicle expenditure and the use of consultants.
The Mail & Guardian analysed the consultancy spend of 23 of the biggest local and metropolitan municipalities. The data shows that the biggest spender on consultants and outsourced work was the eThekwini municipality, followed by Nelson Mandela Bay and then the City of Cape Town, spending R2.2-billion, R738-million and R224-million respectively.   uMsunduzi (which includes Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal), Mahikeng (North West) and Polokwane (Limpopo) local municipalities spent close to R20-million in the 2017-2018 financial year on consultants.  According to data provided by the treasury, a total of R44.2-billion was underspent by all municipalities at the end of last year’s fourth quarter. Underspending was the most prevalent in the North West at 43% (R9.6-billion), the Free State at 26.9% (R5.4-billion) and Mpumalanga at 26.2% (R5.5-billion). https://mg.co.za/article/2019-06-28-00-consultants-a-fruitless-waste/

The President’s Coordinating Council (PCC) has endorsed a new district-based model for development that will synchronise planning by all spheres of government and involve citizens and civil society in the development of South Africa’s 44 municipal districts and eight (8) Metros.   This is the key outcome of the first meeting of the President’s Coordinating Council (PCC) of the sixth Administration which met in Pretoria today, 20 August 2019, convened by President Cyril Ramaphosa.

The PCC’s endorsement of the Khawuleza (“hurry up”) District Coordination Service Delivery Model follows overwhelming support for the new approach by joint committees of Cabinet and by the Local Government MINMEC, the structure that comprises the Minister for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs; provincial Members of Executive Councils for local government and the South African Local Government Association (SALGA).

The model will also be submitted for approval by Cabinet at its meeting in Cape Town tomorrow, Wednesday 21 August 2019. The new model will be piloted in the OR Tambo District Municipality in the Eastern Cape at a time that will be identified in due course.

One meeting at the Union Buildings in Pretoria was co-chaired by the President and Deputy President David Mabuza.   The meeting brought together Ministers in The Presidency; the Ministers, Deputy Ministers and Directors-General of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Finance and Public Service and Administration; the nine Provincial Premiers and provincial Directors-General; Executive Mayors of the eight Metros as well as the South African Local Government Association (SALGA) President, Deputy President and Chief Executive Officer.

The PCC deliberations at the Union Buildings gave effect to the commitment by President Ramaphosa in the June 2019 State of the Nation Address that the Council’s agenda would be refocused to sharpen and strengthen cooperative governance and implement a well-coordinated and coherent national programme of action.

The Khawuleza District Coordination Service Delivery Model endorsed by the PCC seeks to secure maximum coordination and cooperation among the national, provincial and local spheres of government, who will act in partnership with civil society – including communities, business and labour – at the district level countrywide.

Across the 44 districts and 8 Metros in the country, all developmental initiatives will be viewed through a district-level lens. Development will be pursued through single, integrated plans per district – one district, one plan – that will outline the role of each sphere of government as well as the role of communities and civil society sectors in each district.   This coordination will require – with effect from the 2020/21 Budget cycle – that national budgets and programmes are spatially referenced across the 44 districts and 8 Metros.

Similarly, provincial government budgets and programmes will be spatially referenced to districts and metros in the respective provinces, while municipalities will express the needs and aspirations of communities in integrated development plans for the 44 districts and 8 Metros. This shift in planning is expected to narrow the distance between citizens and engender active participation by citizens in development, and enable long-term planning as well as responses to immediate “burning” issues.

This new dispensation seeks to change the face of rural and urban landscapes by ensuring complementarity between urban and rural development, with a deliberate emphasis on local economic development.   The district-driven model is directed at turning plans into action, and ensuring proper project management and tracking.   In his opening address to the Council, President Ramaphosa said that in the past, programmes and initiatives had been rolled out without being in synch with government’s overarching strategy.

Shortcomings in previous service delivery models necessitated a new approach to development that would be more practical, achievable, implementable, measurable and clearly aligned to the key priorities of government.   The PCC also received presentations outlining the alignment of draft provincial growth and development plans with the national priorities listed in the June 2019 State of the Nation Address as government’s areas of focus for the current political term.

PCC Endorses District-Centred Development Model

The model will be piloted in two Districts (OR Tambo; Waterberg) and a Metro (Ethekwini) that have elements of Rural, Mining and Urban.    The new District Development Model offers a number of opportunities for the development of a #DisabilityInclusiveSA through strategic implementation of the White Paper on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities at community level.  This is therefore a call to Executive Authorities, all Accounting Officers, all programme managers across all spheres of government, working with organs of civil society and the private sector, to ensure that access and participation barriers which marginalise persons with disabilities are removed, and that all planning, budgeting and service delivery are designed using universal design principles, are disability equitable and offer opportunities for persons with disabilities as drivers of community and economic development.

A new integrated planning model for Cooperative Governance

The District/Metro spaces offer the appropriate scale and arena for intergovernmental planning coordination.   The District Model provides both an Institutional Approach and Territorial Approach (geographical space) focus.  The 44 Districts and 8 Metros are developmental spaces (IGR Impact Zones) can be the strategic alignment platforms for all three spheres of government where One Plan for each space guides and directs all strategic investments and projects for transparent accountability.  The District Model aims to address service delivery challenges and speed up service delivery and economic development, including job creation.

Ramaphosa visited KwaZulu-Natal Province during 17 and 18 October 2019, to launch the metropolitan version of the District Development Model at the eThekwini (Durban) Metropolitan Municipality.    Inspired by the Khawuleza (hurry up) call to action, the District Development Model aims to accelerate, align and integrate service delivery under a single development plan per district or metro that is developed jointly by national, provincial and local government as well as business, labour and community in each district.

Each district plan ensures that national priorities such as economic growth and employment; improvements to living conditions; the fight against crime and corruption and better education outcomes are attended to in the locality concerned.   This development approach ensures that planning and spending across the three spheres of government is integrated and aligned and that each district or metro plan is developed with the interests and input of communities taken into account upfront.

The eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality, as one of the 8 Metropolitan municipalities in the country, is a significant contributor to the national economy and is required to be a conducive environment for job creation through local and foreign investment, and for addressing such challenges as poverty, inequality and spatial transformation.

The eight metros are the drivers of the national economy, generating 52.5% of GDP, 57.2% of national employment, and 65% of all taxable income.   The eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality achieved an annual growth rate of 0.94% in 2018 which is similar to the provincial growth rate, and higher than the national rate of 0.79%.

With the realisation that metropolitan areas are critical sites of creativity and innovation, the three spheres of government are investing a total of R28.6 billion in the next 5 years within the eThekwini metropolitan municipality to jointly respond to the developmental challenges in the area.

Ahead of the eThekwini District Development launch on Friday, 18 October 2019, he visited the Dube Trade Port Special Economic Zone on 17 October 2019.

The Dube Trade Port Special Economic Zone is a catalyst for the Durban Aerotropolis which covers over 3 000 ha around the King Shaka International Airport.   It comprises airfreight facilities, the Dube Cargo Terminal, light industrial manufacturing and logistics and the Dube TradeZone, as well as an integrated agricultural precinct with a plant propagation laboratory, glass greenhouses, pack houses and distribution facilities.

He also visited the Mara Phone Manufacturing Plant which is housed at the Dube Trade Port. The Mara Group announced plans to manufacture affordable smartphones in South Africa at the inaugural South African Investment Conference held in November 2018.   Mara Phones will manufacture two smartphones developed in partnership with Google, as part of the Android One Program.   Following his engagements at the Dube Trade Port Special Economic Zone, Ramaphosa met with the Durban Chamber of Business as part of the stakeholder collaboration that the District Development Model advocates.

On Friday, 18 October 2019,  Ramaphosa visited the Mtshebheni Police Station in Inanda to monitor its service delivery outcomes following the 2017/2018 national crime statistics report which recorded that the Inanda police cluster had the highest number of sexually related crimes in South Africa.     He then proceeded to the Princess Magogo Stadium in KwaMashu to formally launch the eThekwini District Development Model at a community Imbizo.    Ramaphosa was accompanied by David Mabuza, Premier Sihle Zikalala of KwaZulu-Natal, Mayor Cllr Mxolisi Kaunda of eThekwini Metro Municipality and members of the National, Provincial Executive and Mayoral Committee.

Waterberg district
A final launch of the pilot phase was held at Waterberg District on 26 November in Lephalale which has elements of mining spatial development. The Waterberg area is the largest production area of platinum in the province of Limpopo and the mining of coal and petroleum development in Lephalale has increased demand for the commodity for electricity generation. Lephalale also has a variety of agricultural activities taking place around it including game farming, livestock farming and irrigated agriculture and it contributes to the economic development of the district and province.
The District Development Model has been approved by government structures, including Cabinet to integrate service delivery that will be more practical, achievable, implementable, measurable and clearly aligned to the key priorities of the government. The model seeks to change the face of rural and urban landscapes by ensuring complementarity between urban and rural development, with a deliberate emphasis on local economic development.

Die opinie word gehuldig dat die koördinerende raad van die SA president,  reeds op 20 Augustus 2019 vergader het om ‘n nuwe distriks-gebaseerde model vir ontwikkeling voor te stel wat onderskryf is deur sy kabinet.    Dus, word hier op parlementêre vlak reeds uitgespel wat hulle wil doen.    Volgens hulle planne word beplan dat alle sfere van regering sal sinkroniseer en burgers en die burgerlike samelewing in die ontwikkeling van Suid-Afrika se 44 Munisipale distrikte en agt (8) Metros betrek.

Indien dit uiteindelik slegs distrikte gaan behels, en wat meestal  slegs Swart en Khoisan tradisionele leiers  insluit, soos die “ramaphosa one plan” dokument, sluit dit weer eens blanke volke (Afrikaners, Boere en ander blankes) totaal en al hierby uit net soos ons by swart bemagtiging uitgesluit word.

Die indruk by die breë publiek is dat daar ook teen Khoi san, bruin en blankes gediskrimineer word met B-BBEE wetgewing.  Dis onwaar.   Lees op oor alle wetgewing.  Khoi San het ook hul eie onderskeie wetgewings, net soos wat die Zoeloes het, wat slegs vir hulle geskryf is.

Grondeise sedert 1994 val onder die CPA wetgewing en word slegs op daardie groepe van toepassing gemaak – hul name verskyn op geregistreerde CPAs.     En dit is suiwer rassisme en diskriminasie , teenoor alle Blankes en ook teenoor mekaar.  Daar is twee Huise  (Swartes en Khoi san/bruin), wat ook eie wetgewings het, en volgens hul termes in orde, want dis dan in die “sogenaamde Grondwet”.

Die swart bemagtiging wetgewings (B-BBEE) sluit slegs blankes hierby uit, juis om net blankes ekonomies af te takel en uit te skakel.   Selfs op sportgebied is daar kwotas asook op alle vlakke van regering.  Al beteken dit daar is ‘n Stadsraad wat nie ANC is nie, moet die nasionale wetgewing steeds gevolg word.   Ook sal die Distrikte onderhewig wees aan Nasionale wetgewings, nes munisipaliteite.    Tenders is ‘n goeie voorbeeld, asook die aanstelling van persone op alle vlakke van regering en ook privaatsektor op sekere vlakke wat B-BBEE sertifikate het.

Natuurlik is daar anderskleuriges wat vir blanke besighede of boerderye werk, wat 100% geraak word, maar die regering vir wie hul gestem het, het nie ‘n saak met vernietiging van diegene wat wel vir blankes werk nie, ook op plase eis dit ‘n tol werkloses.   Op plase is dit oor die algemeen bekend, maar wat totaal ontken word deur die huidige president sowel as sy kaders, dat misdaad, aanvalle en moorde gemik is teenoor blankes en blanke Boere.

Indien meeste plaaswerkers aangerand word, was hul eenvoudig in die pad van die misdadiger indien hulle nie gehelp (spioene) het om die misdaad teenoor die eienaar en boer te pleeg nie – en daar is werkers wat wel lojaal is maar bitter min.   Lees op as daar misdadigers aangekeer word hoe betrokke is werkers in so ‘n aanvalsproses.     Dus word die anderskleuriges soms ook geraak indien hul in ‘n blanke besigheid werksaam is.  Dit gaan nie verander nie, is al 26 jaar so, en dit word deur Ramaphosa gedryf, as voorsitter van sy ANC kommissie.   Regering dwing basies werkers om vir hul te stem maar dan loop hul deur as hulle vir nie-ondersteuners werk.  Gaan oor geld en ondersteuning.

Op ‘n ander been, kan die regering nie wag dat belastings ingekry word nie.  Ons blankes se belastings is goed genoeg, ons besighede wat inkomste inbring is goed genoeg, maar daar stop die bus – die einde van die roete wat slegs op die inkomste van die staatskas fokus.

Boere en alle ander besighede, kleinsake, wat dink hulle gee almal voedsel, sekuriteit handel oor die voeding van die nasie, wat uit verskillende volksgroepe sowel immigrante bestaan.  Die regering gee niks om vir die blanke Boere nie.     Almal gaan koop voedsel aan die einde van die dag wat van ‘n BOER afkomstig is.   Selfs al word voedsel ingevoer, is heelwat afkomstig van blanke boere oorsee wat uitvoer na Suid-Afrika.

*

Op distriksvlak gaan dit verdere tradisionele verskille voortbring soos alreeds vir 26 jaar aan die gang is.

Dit gaan enorme distriksuitgawes behels, wat alles van nuuts af “gebou” moet word – en dis nie asof CPA, Trustgebiede en alle munisipaliteite nie reeds heelwat ontvang het, waar net korrupsie plaasgevind het.    Dis heelwat in Hansards vervat – wat het die onderskeie Trustgebiede en CPA’s al bereik?

*

SARS

Daar word min misdadigers vasgevat wat belastinggeld neem as ekstra inkomste (SARS).    Terloops, daar is reeds duisende Trustgebiede en CPA’s in plek na 1994, en dit het eenvoudig naamsveranderinge ondergaan, wat al die ou tuislande en britse kroongebiede (1854-1961) vervang het.   Grondeise val onder die CPA wetgewings.

*


Agtergrond ….

Dit is wat die DA voorhou dat die ANC regering reeds planne in werking het om ‘n nuwe stelsel te begin.   Dis nie regtig nuut nie.    Daar is reeds in 2019 hieroor besluite gemaak.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) is in possession of what appears to be a government document that describes the Covid-19 pandemic as an opportunity for the “macro re-organisation of the state”, and proposes to make the Command Council system a model for government beyond the lockdown.
