As part of the Provincial Week, the various permanent delegates to the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) visited their respective provinces on the week on 13 – 17 August

2007. They report as follows:

SECTION ONE

1. Background The Provincial Week is one of the mechanisms established by the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) to achieve its mandate of representing the country’s provinces in the national sphere. It provides a forum for the exchange and sharing of ideas by both permanent delegates to the NCOP, the provinces and communities on service delivery issues and challenges that are confronting the provinces in fulfilling their constitutional mandates to delivery quality and efficient services to the people.

During the Provincial Week, permanent delegates to the NCOP meet with various provincial leaders, including Premiers, Members of the Executive Council (MECs) and the Departments, Provincial Legislatures, including the Speakership, the Whippery and Chairperson of Committees, and other key stakeholders such as local government leaders and the South African Local Government Association (SALGA).

The Provincial Week gives permanent delegates to the NCOP and Legislatures an opportunity to undertake oversight visits and interact with their communities in order to get “first hand” information on the needs and challenges that are confronting the people.

They also visit projects that are implemented by both national and provincial government in their provinces to ascertain progress that is being made.

Since its inception the Provincial Week has grown to be a key measure used by the NCOP in soliciting information on progress that provinces and municipalities are making in delivering quality services to the people and measures that they have instituted to advance the government’s commitment to ensure a better quality of life for the people of South Africa. It enables the NCOP to contribute to the effective governance in the provinces and at municipal levels.

In line with the NCOP’s Programme 2009, which seeks to expand the oversight role of the NCOP in the provinces, the Whippery took a decision that the focus of the 2007 Provincial Weeks should be on ascertaining progress that municipalities are making in delivering quality services to the people. The theme for the two Provincial Week was “Addressing Challenges for Effective and Sustainable Service Delivery to our People”.

The second round of the Provincial Week was intended to follow up on the progress on the issues that were raised during the first visit in May. It was also intended to ensure that provinces and municipalities are putting in place measures and programmes to address recommendations made during the Provincial Week.

–  –  –

1.1 Meeting with Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan 1.1.1 Update on the Mathew Goniwe Greenfields Housing Project The delegation was informed that there has not been much progress on the issues that were raised during the May Provincial Week. It was informed that the main challenge facing the delivery of efficient and effective services to the people is a lack of capacity at the Metropolitan. As a result, there is persistent discontent regarding delays or non payment of service providers by service providers and contractors to the Metropolitan.

Delays in the approval of housing projects and payment of service providers often lead to escalation of construction costs. It was stated that the situation is worsen by the fact that housing projects are not promptly and regularly inspected, which result in defects being discovered at a very late stage.

What was most disconcerting to the delegation was that the quality of the houses being built at the Mathew Goniwe Greenfields Housing was of a sub standard and no adequate infrastructure is being put in place to ensure that the houses give the people access to a better quality of life.

It was reported that the housing sector in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan has collapsed because of internal administrative problems, which has resulted in the suspension of senior officials for various irregularities. As a result, an intervention from the province has been requested because some of the projects of the Metropolitan were taken over by the National Department of Housing due to poor progress of the projects.

1.1.2 Update on the Metropolitan’s readiness for 2010 On the Metropolitan’s readiness with its construction plan for the 2010 Stadium, it was reported that the issue of the extra budget need for the competition of the stadium has not been resolved.

1.1.3 Recommendations

The following recommendations were made:

(i) The Province should play a key role in establishing a guiding framework for the payment of service providers by Departments and municipalities;

(ii) The Province needs to put in place measures to monitor and ensure that contractors are paid on time and that projects are completed at the stipulated timelines and standard;

–  –  –

(iii) The Province should institute measures to deal with contractors who do not complete projects either within the agreed timeframes or abandon projects;

(iv) The Province needs to urgently look at the issue of capacity in the Metropolitan, particularly at senior management level; and (v) Immediate attention should be given to the funding required for the construction of the stadium for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

1.2 A follow up on Projects 1.2.1 Kenton on Sea The Department of Housing reported that the project had not moved much since the May visit. The main challenge was that some houses had internal services that were installed but not functional and the top structures that have been left incomplete. It was stated that two agencies were commissioned to produce a report that would reflect on the outstanding work and its cost implication in assessing if the contractor would be able to complete the work with the available budget or would require an additional funding.

Funds have been secured for the material of the top structure that had not been started.

1.2.2 Walmer

«How Does Prayer Affect God’s Plan? An Enquiry into God’s Providence with Special Reference to Prayer and Healing by Mark Pretorius1 Abstract If God is sovereign and His plans fixed, why pray? Does prayer change what God has purposed to do? If not, what is the point in praying? One could take these questions even further and say: if prayer has any effect on what happens, then it would seem that God’s plans are not fixed. On the other hand, if God has settled His plans and He will do what...»
