Transport Portfolio Committee takes a closer look at the South Africa/Mozambique Border

Transport Portfolio Committee takes a closer look at the South Africa/Mozambique Border
Concerns have been raised by Umhlabuyalingana community about the cross-border vehicle theft that is rampant on the border between South Africa and Mozambique. This has prompted the Portfolio Committee on Transport to visit the planned project of the department which seeks to respond to this challenge.

“We are here to see how far and what plans have been established to respond to the cross-border crime as it remains our greatest concern as a Portfolio Committee”, said the chairperson of the Committee, Hon Ntombikayise Sibhidla-Saphetha.

Briefing the Portfolio Committee, the Department of Transport Project Manager, Mr Ndumiso Ndlovu, assured the Committee that the planned project, namely, the Jersey Barrier, includes the construction of the 8km wall along the border line as an initial construction. Responding to questions from members of the Committee, he emphasised that the project will be labour intensive with about 100 jobs to be created for the local people. Various stakeholders have been taken on board, and these include the local Council, Inkosi, suppliers and other relevant government departments.

It was also comforting for members of the Committee to learn that the Defence Force is present to minimise these crimes. However, it came to light that the Defence Force has numerous challenges in curbing these crimes. These include suspected information leaks to criminals regarding the movement of the members of the defence, flocking of civilians between borders and social activities that take place right in the border between South African and Mozambican civilians, the changing of personnel as Defence rotates the deployed of personnel in that area, the limited numbers of members on the ground as only about 47 to man a distance of 20 km etc.

In view of these challenges, the Portfolio Committee resolved to hold further meetings soon to establish amongst others, where the funding for this massive project will come from as was reported. The meeting will further seek to establish whether the funding is sufficient, and to interrogate other decisions that were taken which by the department, according to the Committee leaves it with more questions to ask.


WAR-ROOMS FUNCTIONALITY MONITORING PROGRAMME KWAZULU-NATAL LEGISLATURE 28-29 August 2018

KZN LEGISLATURE MONITORS THE NATIONAL AND PROVINCIAL DEVELOPMENT PLANS THROUGH INTENSIVE OVERSIGHT VISITS TO WAR ROOMS IN MUNICIPALITIES THIS WEEK (NDP & PGDP)

Over the next two days, 28 and 29 August 2018, the Legislature embarks on an intensive oversight programme to assess the impact of War Rooms in relation to service delivery in the entire KZN province. This move is in line with the constitutional obligation of the legislature as set out in Section 114 (2) of the Constitution which stipulates that, ‘provincial legislatures must provide for mechanisms to ensure that all provincial executive organs of state in the province are accountable to it.

In this regard, the Legislature oversees parts of the NDP and PGDP through the War-Rooms Programme, which remains a vehicle to facilitate quick response to service delivery needs, by profiling households in a ward and the level of service delivery per household. It seeks to achieve Goal Three: Human and Community Development of the PGDP, with specific reference to the eradication of poverty and the improvement of social welfare.

The Legislature considers War Rooms a multi-purpose, multi-sectoral and the involvement of various government departments at different layers makes this kind of oversight critical in the exercise of the legislature’s oversight role.

This oversight programme seeks to assess whether or not the War Rooms in the province are on track, and to assess whether what was set out in the design of the project is being accomplished within the time-frames required.  The Oversight Programme will assess the following:

 Composition of the War-Rooms; Frequency of meetings and participation by stakeholders; Cases dealt with and turnaround period; Data Management; Follow-up on issues; Processing of reports; Feedback to communities; and Overall percentage of functional OSS War-Rooms interventions on the spot.

War-Rooms, are a part of a broader programme, Operation Sukuma Sakhe (OSS). OSS is integrating all departments to focus on solving community problems from the grassroots level. The Programme aims at promoting human values, fighting crime, diseases and social ills, to ensure moral regeneration. As part of this programme, all government departments work together, visiting the poorest, most deprived households in the province to bring health, welfare and other services to them. OSS encompasses the “One Home One Garden Programme” and ensures that families are assisted to register for birth certificates and identity documents. It promotes education, skills development and youth development and emphasizes the delivery of service and infrastructure development.

All media representatives are invited to attend this programme.

Attached is the deployment of the Members of the Provincial Legislature across KZN.

KZN Women United in Moving South Africa Forward

KZN Women United in Moving South Africa Forward

During the two-day Women’s Parliament held on 7 and 8 August at Vulindlela Stadium in the upper Edendale in Umsunduzi Municipality to commemorate the women’s month, women from all political parties represented in the KZN Legislature were unanimous in the fight against gender-based violence and all forms of women and child abuse.

The Women’s Parliament is an annual programme of the KZN Legislature to celebrate the women’s month and to commemorate the Women’s March of 1956 in which women demonstrated their solidarity across racial lines in a bid to end oppressive laws, in particular, the carrying of discriminatory passes which were forced upon them by the apartheid regime.

The commemoration was combined with the celebration of the centenary of the two struggle icons, Mama Albertina Sisulu and Nelson Mandela, who turn 100 years this year.

Delegates went into commissions to discuss and explore various topics which focused on issues affecting women in a society in which they bear the brunt of all forms of abuse and economic exclusion. Commissions which met on the first day until very late, made several recommendations which were tabled at the plenary the following day and later adopted as resolutions of the Women’s Parliament.

In a period where abuse of women is rife, this year’s Women’s Parliament focused on a range of issues affecting ordinary women. Amongst other issues that were up for discussion included the following:
• Eradicating the scourge of gender-based violence.
• The efficacy of current policies and interventions to combat femicide and abuse in general.
• Focus on child marriages and assessment of South Africa’s international obligations, national laws and cultural practices to protect young girls and deliberated on the effects these marriages have on human rights of young girls.
• Patriarchy within the South African Police Service – fact or fiction? This question was discussed against the background of challenges faced by women when reporting cases of rape or other forms of physical abuse at police stations throughout South Africa.

Women resolved that their economic exclusion in various spheres of society remains a challenge to economic emancipation of women, and they have called upon the government to accelerate Radical Socio-Economic Transformation (RSET).

A discussion which they hoped would contribute to the current question of land redistribution took place in which women called for greater access to, and control over economic resources, including land.

The resolutions adopted by the Women’s Parliament will be forwarded to the provincial government for consideration which may ultimately lead to new legislation passed by the Legislature.


KZN Legislature holds Women’s Parliament to commemorate Women’s Month

On 7 and 8 August 2018, at Vulindlela Stadium in the upper Edendale under Umsunduzi Municipality, women from all political parties represented in the KZN Legislature will converge for their annual women’s parliament. KZN Women, will again this year, commemorate the Women’s March of 1956 in which women demonstrated their solidarity across racial lines in a bid to end the carrying of permits which they were forced by the apartheid regime.

 

The commemoration will be combined with the celebration of the centenary of Mama Albertina Sisulu and Nelson Mandela. There are a number of activities planned to mark the centenary of the two struggle icons.

 

In a period where abuse of women is rife, this year’s parliament will amongst other issues discuss and resolve on 1. eradicating the scourge of gender-based violence, 2. reflect on the efficacy of current policies and interventions to combat femicide and abuse in general, 3. focus on the child marriages and assess South Africa’s international obligations, national laws and cultural practices to protect young girls and deliberate on the effects these marriages have on human rights of young girls. 4. Patriarchy within the South African Police Service – fact or fiction? This is the question they hope to unpack against the background of challenges faced by women when reporting cases of rape or other forms of physical abuse at police stations throughout South Africa.

 

The Women have also resolved that their economic exclusion in various spheres of society remains a challenge to economic emancipation of women, and they have resolved to include discussion on Radical Socio-Economic Transformation (RSET), a discussion which they hope will explore ideas for women to expand access to, and control over economic resources, including land.

The Women’s Parliament remains one of many Legislature’s strategies to broaden public participation of the women’s sectors in order to achieve the legislature’s constitutional mandate, namely, involving various sectors of society in the legislative processes. Women will also use this opportunity to engage the executive arm of government, and articulate issues that concern them as women in society. These issues are forwarded to government in the form of resolutions which may ultimately lead to new legislation passed by the Legislature.

 

Media representatives are invited to this event.

Emotional scenes play out at the Pietermaritzburg #TotalShutDown march

Thousands of women have marched on the streets of the KwaZulu-Natal Capital City, Pietermaritzburg to hand over a memorandum demanding an end to gender based violence. This was the beginning of a month-long activities to fight against gender based violence during the women’s month.

They’re demanding government to establish a comprehensive process to address and reduce women abuse in the country. Some women taking part in Wednesday’s march have recalled their harrowing stories. A woman says she’s attended the march to stand in solidarity with all women, especially victims of gender-based violence.

#OurBodyIsNotYourCrimeScene

#kznlegislature #insession #TotalShutDown #OurBodyIsNotYourCrimeScene

“I’m here today to support women, myself and all victims of sexual assaults by men, they are killing us, it’s too much now.” said UKZN SCR Deputy President, she also shared a horrifying story of the female UKZN student that was raped by a male classmate. The marchers said government needs to take more drastic steps to stop the scourge in the country. “We are here because we are seeing the rate of femicide and gender-based violence keeps on increasing. And all we ever get is ‘we condemn’ and ‘enough is enough”.

Women from all walks of life have taken part in Wednesday’s march, many wearing black and red – saying they want to send a strong message that “no means no”. Gender activists and groups around the world have pledged their support for Wednesday’s #TotalShutDown marches against women abuse.

The march brought the City of Pietermaritzburg to a standstill on Wednesday‚ as hundreds of women gathered to raise their voices against the scourge of gender-based violence in South Africa.

Among those leading the march was Hon Khoza,,chairperson of Premier and Royal Household Portfolio Committee and the Women’s Caucus, together with other MPLs from different political parties that are represented in the KZN Legislature. Among those in the forefront of the march was Bridget Dlamini a retired Legislature employee and champion of gender issues who is known for fighting against all forms of issues affecting women, children and people with disabilities.
Women marched to the KwaZulu-Natal Legislature in song‚ some holding hands as others hoisted placards above their head, chanting songs and painful slogans like ‘my body is not your crime scene’ – ‘I refuse to die with my hands up and my legs open’

One of the marshals, Hon. Khoza‚ said she hoped the government would institute a specialized court that will deal exclusively with issues of gender-based violence.

The memorandum of demands was read and handed over to Hon. Meshack Radebe, Deputy Speaker of KwaZulu-Natal Legislature, who also made an undertaking to look into all grievances , demands and proposals of the memorandum and committed government to not only listen but take concomitant action that will end this malpractice in our society. “I appeal again to all victims of gender-based violence to come up and not to be shy for fear of victimization and stigmatization and to speak out so that all the perpetrators will be brought into book”.

He also requested the marchers to observe a moment of silent to honour the passing of Mr Brian Thusi, the husband of Hon. Weziwe Thusi the MEC for Social Development, who passed on after a short illness.


WORKERS HOLD THEIR PARLIAMENTARY SITTING IN HLUHLUWE KZN

On Friday, and Saturday 18 to 19 May 2018 respectively, the three major Federations in KwaZulu-Natal, COSATU, FEDUSA and NACTU will hold the annual Workers’ Parliament at Makhasa Sports and Recreation Centre, KwaMduku in Hluhluwe. Workers’ Parliament is one of the Legislature’s public participation programmes, which allows the Legislature to involve the working class sector in matters of governance in the province. According to the Federations these matters for discussions will include,  challenges in accessing CCMA, the Department of Home Affairs, difficulties and challenges posed by Game Reserves for workers and communities in uMkhanyakude District and these are just a few areas of discussions to feature when various Commissions deliberate on the first day of the sitting of the sitting the Parliament Workers’ Parliament on 18 May.

 

On the second day, 19 May, intense discussions on the implementation of the National Minimum Wage, (which the Federations claim will engage on in honour of the struggle icons, Nelson Mandela and Mama Albertina Sisulu) will take place under the watchful eye of the Speaker of the day. These discussions will lead to the adoption of resolutions that will be forwarded to relevant Committees of the Legislature for further consideration and processing. A debate will also be held in the Chamber by Political parties when the relevant Committee presents the Workers’ Parliament report to the Legislature. For further processing and implementation of the workers’ resolutions, Members of the Executive Council will receive the report and relevant departments are expected to implement and provide progress report on such implementation to the Legislature. The progress report on implementation of this year’s resolutions will again be tabled in the next year’s Workers’ Parliament in a feedback session to the workers by the Executive. The theme to guide the discussions for this year’s Workers Parliament is: “ Implement the National Minimum Wage, in honour of the Centenary of our Struggle Icons, as we build ethical governance and stimulating economic growth”.

 

Media is invited to take in both the Commissions and the actual sitting on both days.

SPECIAL OFFICIAL FUNERAL FOR THE LATE WINNIE MADIKIZELA MANDELA

Mama_Winnie_Mandela_Facebook_Banner_(851x315px)

On 2 April 2018, the country heard the sad news of the passing of struggle stalwart and former Member of Parliament Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. She was among the great icons of the liberation struggle who sacrificed everything in the fight against the brutal apartheid state.

In her dedication to the people of South Africa during the darkest days of apartheid and her tenacity to create a society free from racial oppression, she was affectionately referred to as the “Mother of the Nation”.

Mama Winnie is revered by millions of South Africans and her role in our liberation is undeniable. While she was not without flaws, her life must be viewed in the context of the repressive conditions and apartheid brutality at the time.

Mama Winnie was born Nomzamo Winifred Zanyiwe Madikizela on 26 September 1936 in the village of Mbongweni in Bizana in the former Transkei. She attended the Shawsbury High School where she matriculated with a first class pass.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has declared ten days of mourning and a special official funeral. A memorial service will be held for Winnie Madikizela-Mandela on 11 April 2018 at the Regina Mundi Church in Soweto and funeral on 14 April 2018 at the Orlando Stadium.

Funeral Service

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PORFOLIO (PPP) COMMITTEE ATTENDS TO A DISPUTE OVER A TOMBSTONE OF INKOSI NTSHINGWAYO KAMAHOLE KHOZA

The PPP Committee will tomorrow, 19 February 2018, in uMhlathuze Council Chamber Richardsbay hold a meeting with two Khoza clans to find a solution to a disputed tombstone erected in Eshowe.

The two parties involved in the matter are Khoza from Eshowe and Khoza from Ulundi. Both of these groups claim that Inkosi Ntshingwayo KaMahole belong to them. The group from Ulundi are in possession of the family tree in support of their claim.  A petition was therefore received late last year by the Legislature from Mr Zwelabo Khoza requesting the Legislature to intervene in the matter pertaining to the tombstone of the late Inkosi Ntshingwayo KaMahole Khoza.

 

In a meeting of the 23 January 2018, the PPP Committee led by its Chairperson Hon EV Dube resolved that a meeting has to be convened between the two parties and that the Department of Corporative Governance and Traditional Affairs should be invited to this meeting. It is anticipated that Cogta will make its representation to this long standing dispute between the two.

 

Media is welcome to attend.

Senior Citizen’s Parliament 2016 in Phongola

It is not all politics in the Senior Citizen’s Parliament, but the elderly have access to health services they need the most.  At the Senior Citizen’s Parliament, held in Phongola, staff from Intshelejuba hospital are hard at work rendering the health services to the most vulnerable members of our society, the elderly. The exhibition marquee set up has been of great benefit to the elderly who hardly have taxi fares to go to clinics or hospitals for their health needs. The long distances people have to travel to access health service is a challenge to elders like gogo Simelane who had an amputated leg.

With these services the elders are assessed, others referred for specialised services if necessary, and these services include dentistry, dietetics, physiotherapy etc. Those with high blood pressure (and have their medical cards with them), are offered treatment on-site.

Senior citizens of Zululand district have praised the Legislature for providing the opportunity for them to not only express their views on service delivery issues in general, but also their specific needs for health.

A considerable amount of work was done by Health Practitioners form Intshelejuba Hospital at the 
Senior Citizen’s Parliament 2016 in Phongola offering elders health services.

King Goodwill Zwelithini’s Address to the House at the Opening of the KwaZulu-Natal Legislature on 26 February 2015

INKULUMO YESILO EKUVULWENI KWESISHAYAMTHETHO SAKWAZULU-NATAL, MHLA ZINGAMA 26 KUNHLOLANJA 2015, EMGUNGUNDLOVU

INdlunkulu yonke ekhona namuhla

Ndunankulu, Mhlonishwa Senzo Mchunu

Abaphathiswa bemiNyango eyahlukene

Amakhosi nezinduna zeZizwe ezahlukahlukene

Abaholi bamabandla

Abelaphi bendabuko

Abaphathi bezimboni

Abezindaba

Sizwe sonke ngiyanibingelela

Kuhlale kuyintokozo ukuba phambi kwenu uma kuqala unyaka noma isigamu esithize sesiShayamthetho. Njengokulawula koMthetho-sisekelo wezwe, le Ndlu ingubuso bentando yabantu ngoba nonke njengoba nilapha, kungakhathalekile ukuthi izibalo zenu zingakanani, nilapha ngenxa yezifiso zabantu bakwaZulu-Natal. Ubukhona benu ngabanye ngabanye kuwubufakazi bokuthi inqubo yentando yabantu ikhona, nokuthi futhi isigxilile kwaZulu-Natal.

Yize namuhla, njengaminyaka yonke sikuthokozela ukuvulwa kwale Ndlu, ngakolunye uhlangothi siyakukhumbula lokho okwenzekile kulezi zinyanga ezedlule esifundazweni sethu nakulabo esibaziyo. Ezinyangeni ezedlule isifundazwe sihlaselwe yizehlo ezihlobene nokuguquguquka kwesimo sezulu, ezishiye kweminye imizi nemiphakathi kukhalwa. Sisizwile isililo kuzo zonke izingxenye zesifundazwe, ikakhulukazi lesi esibikwe endaweni yaseMelmoth lapho amabhungu amabili elimale khona. Kube njalo nakwaNongoma.

Nale Ndlu ehloniphekileyo ilahlekelwe ngamalungu ayo aqavile okungoMhlonishwa Stanley Dladla obemele i-National Freedom Party noMhlonishwa uMtholephi Mthimkhulu obemele i-African National Congress. Egameni leNdlunkulu, uBukhosi kanye nesizwe, ngidlulisa ukudabuka kwami emindenini nakumaqembu alahlekelwe.

Ngiselapho ngiyafisa ukubonga yonke imizamo eyenziwe ukuba imizimba yabakuleli ababhubha ezweni laseNigeria ibuyiswe ekhaya. Lesi kwaba yisibalo esiphezulu sabantu bakuleli abalimalela ngaphandle kwemingcele kungaphakwempi. Njengoba nganxusa enkulumweni yami engayethula kwaDukuza ngoMandulo nyakenye, sekwenziwe konke, kuyobaluleka ukuba ligcinwe isiko lokuba laba abasilahlekelayo balandwe ukuze sigweme lokho okungaba ngumkhokha.

Umphefumulo wami uhlale ukhathazeka nxa ngizwa ngokuhamba emhlabeni kwabantu abasebancane. Ngasekuqaleni kwalo nyaka ngiphatheke kabi uma ngizwa ngokulimala kanye nokushona kwezingane ezincane ezingozini zezimoto. Emindenini yalezo zingane ezihambe ngezingozi lapho ziya noma zibuya ezikoleni, ngithi duduzekani , kuzodlula.

Somlomo,

Esikhathini esingangesonto lesi sifundazwe siphinde salahlekelwa yisigomagoma emkhakheni wezemfundo, uMnuz Felix Mshololo obenguThishanhloko kwesinye sezikole ezinemiphumela emihle minyaka yonke, iMenzi High School eMlazi. Nalapho sidlulisa ukudabuka emndenini, ngiphinde futhi ngithathe leli thuba lokuba ngibonge wonke umuntu onguthisha KwaZulu-Natal engaziyo ukuthi yize njalo sihlale sibathela ngodaka njengabazali nomphakathi, kepha umsebenzi wabo abawenza ngaphansi kwezimo ezinzima selokhu kwathi nhlo, ungowokwakha isizwe – Siyabonga niyisibani sezwe.

Okube kubi ngasohlangothini loBukhosi wukuwa kwezihlangu zobukhosi, amakhosi ezizwe, nokube yisibalo esibe sikhulu kakhulu. Kulo nyaka wezimali ka-2014-2015 kuwe izihlangu eziyishumi nanye. Lapha kulale izinsizwa, izinsika zamasiko kanye noBukhosi. Amadela mzimba uqobo lwawo, omabizw’asabele. Ezizweni zonke kanjalo nemindeni ngithi konke kuyadlula ngoba eBukhosini umuntu akafi, uyebuza nje. Nginesiqiniseko sokuthi imvelo iyophinde futhi ngomuso isinike abanobuhlakani nesibindi njengabo.

Somlomo

Uma ngabe siyisizwe esiqaphelayo, lezi zehlo esengizibalule ngenhla kumele ngabe zisinika ithuba lokuzibuza imibuzo enzima njengokuthi kungani kuhamba abancane bethu, amakhosi ezizwe, amalungu esiShayamthetho nezingqalabutho emikhakheni emqoka? Lapha kumele sizibuze ukuthi kukhona yini esingakufunda kulokhu osekwehlile, noma okumele sikwenze ukugwema ezinye zalezi zehlakalo? Ngasohlangothini loBukhosi, simi ngomumo ukulekelela uma sekufika kuleso sigaba.

Malungu ahloniphekileyo

Njengoba ngikubalulile ekuqaleni kwenkulumo yami ukuqonda kwami ubumqoka bale Ndlu, kuyisifiso sami ukuba nani niliqonde futhi namukele ijoka enilethweswa wukuba ngamaLungu ale Ndlu. Lokhu ngikubalula ngoba ngicabanga ukuthi isifungo enasenza siyaniphoqa ukuba phakathi kokunye ningagcini nje ngokushaya imithetho kepha umthetho wezwe ukubeka kini ukuba niphinde niqaphe, futhi neluse izivumelwano kanjalo nokusebenza kukahulumeni, kanye nokusetshenziswa kwemali yabakhokhi bentela.

Ukuze nginikhulule ngivumeleni ngenze izibonelo zezinto engicabanga ukuthi kumele nizisukumele, nibuke ubuqiniso bazo kungakhathalekile ukuthi ngubani noma ngobani abathintekayo. Esigabeni sokugcina sokuphela konyaka ka-2011 elinye lamaphephandaba angeSonto labika ukuthi kunuka santungwana ngokusetshenziswa kwezimali eMnyangweni obhekelele iNdlunkulu. Lezi zinsolo, ngokwami, zazibucayi kakhulu, kungakhathaleki ukuthi ziqondiswe eNdlunkulu nokwangenza ngakhipha isimemo esivulekile kumaLungu eSishayamthetho okubandakanya iKomiti elibhekelele izimali kanye nalelo elimiselwe ukubheka ukusebenza kweHhovisi likaNdunankulu. Isimemo sasithi ake nizobona ukuthi ngabe lokhu izisebenzi ezikubika emakomitini kuyahambisana yini nalokhu okwenzeka eNdlunkulu.

Kulishwa ukuthi namanje alikho ikomiti eselike lasamukela isimemo sami. Emasontweni amabili edlule iphephandaba lesiNgisi eliphuma nsuku zonke libike ukuthi isikhulu esiphezulu eHhovisini lika-Ndunankulu sibikele ikomiti ukuthi sona sikhokhela abantu abathize abasebenza eNdlunkulu bengenawo amakhono. Nalapho ngikhiphe isimemo sokuthi kekuphinde kuzobhekwa ngoba nami ngiyafisa ukuzibona lezi zisebenzi, ngizwe futhi ukuthi konje kwenzeka kanjani ukuthi umuntu aze aqashwe, anikwe ngisho inombolo yomholo kuthiwe useyisisebenzi kepha kwaziwa ukuthi akawazi umsebenzi awuqashelweyo? Impela ngiyazibuza ukuthi le Ndlu yona ithule ithini nxa kwenzeka le migilingwane futhi labo abaqashayo nabaholelayo bezivumela bona kule Ndlu ukuthi ziwadla belindile beyizikhulu? Nakulo nyaka malungu aHloniphekileyo ngisanimema ukuba nizinike isikhathi nize eziGodlweni, nibuke izakhiwo, nibale izisebenzi lezo bese nenza umsebenzi wenu njengokulandisa koMthetho-sisekelo wezwe.

Olunye udaba oluthinta le Ndlu wudaba loMnyango kanjalo neSikhwama esibizwa nge-Royal Household Trust.

Somlomo

Kuhlale kusimangaza ukuzwa izinkulumo nemibhalo ethi kunesamba esithize esiyizigidi, eziza kimi. Le Ndlu ingofakazi bokuthi akekho owake weza kimi noma walunguzisa iNdlunkulu ukuthi konje nxa naba izimali lezo nizaba kanjani. Namuhla le Ndlu iphawula ngokungasebenzi koMnyango ne-Trust nje akekho nowake wenza kimi ukuzongazisa ukuthi ngubani oseqashiwe nozohola uMnyango noma i-Trust. Nami njengawo wonke umuntu ngizwa nje ngomana lapha sikutshele ukuthi sekunomuntu, nalapho uma ngibe nenhlanhla, kepha okuvame ukungenza wukuthi ngizwe kabanzi ngomuntu loyo esehamba ngoba esegile imikhuba. Laba ngabantu abahola izindodla zezimali okungabuzwa ukuthi ngabe bayawenza yini umsebenzi abawuqashelweyo, kubuzwa kithi thina okuthiwa bazosilekelela.

Inselelo engiyinika le Ndlu ngeyokuthi iphenye kabanzi ukuthi laba bantu okuthiwa baqashwa ukuzolekela mina konje bahola malini, nokuthi basebenzisa malini? Le Ndlu ayinekele abantu amagama abantu laba okuthiwa baqube lapha eNdlunkulu, nokuthi konje baqashwa ngubani nokuthi kuzwakale nini ukuthi kabawazi umsebenzi?

Malungu aHloniphekileyo ale Ndlu

Ngiyaninxusa ukuba nenze umsebenzi wenu ngaphandle kokubheka ukuthi inkohlakalo ikhonjwaphi, qalani kulo iHhovisi leli okuthiwa lakhelwe ukusiza mina. Ngokuhlonipha umthetho wezwe, angifisi ukuba ngizithole sengiphendulana nabantu abakhomba iSihlalo ngomunwe, kepha kuwumsebenzi wami ukuthi uma kukhona okuzama ukugcolisa iSihlalo ngingathuli, ngoba lokho kusuke kungathuki nje mina ngedwa, kepha uZulu osenhlabathini nalowo osadla anhlamvana.

Ngiselapha ngiyafisa futhi ukuba le Ndlu ingabi namahloni ukuba nenkulumo-mpikiswano eyakhayo mayelana nezinqumo ezathathwa eminyakeni engaphezu kwamashumi amabili edlule kanjalo nalezo ezathathwa yile Ndlu. Iqiniso lithi kukhona isivumelwano okwangenwa kuso mayelana nendima engadlawa wuBukhosi bakwaZulu ekuqinisekiseni ubunye, ukuthula kanye nentuthuko. Lokhu ngithi angikuphawule ngoba ikhona ingozi yokuthi abantu bakhulume nje bengawazi umlando. Abanye baze benze iphutha lokucabanga ukuthi ngokuba khona kwethu njengoBukhosi siyenzelelwa noma siludibi nje.

Somlomo

Esivumelwaneni esabakhona nabaholi kanye namaqembu ezombusazwe eNingizimu Afrika kanye naKwaZulu-Natal, uBukhosi lobu engiyinhloko yabo bazibophezela ukuthi buzoba sekhaleni lezinhlelo zokuletha nokuzinzisa ukuthula nokubuyisana. Nembala kule minyaka engamashumi amabili, uBukhosi bubhule imililo eminye ebikwayo kwabezindaba eminye engabikwa. Lena yimililo yokulwa phakathi kwezizwe, amaqembu ezombusazwe kanye nasembonini yezokuthutha. Lokhu kungenzeka komunye umuntu kungabi mqoka, kepha kungenxa yale mizamo abantu balesi sifundazwe sebelala bakhululeke. NjengoBukhosi, siyasebenzisana nenhlangano eyengamele ukhetho kuleli i-Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). Siyasebenzisana futhi nohlaka olumele bonke abaHoli bezeNkolo kwaZulu-Natal ukubhula imililo ngokuya kubantu kanye nangemikhuleko. Namakhosi ezizwe ejutshwe wubuKhosi aneqhaza elimqoka ekuthungeni kuhlanganiswe izwe eselahlakazwa wudlame. Ngikhuluma nje, ithimba lamakhosi ngaphansi kwesakhiwo soBukhosi lizophikelela eGoli ukuyobhula umlilo ofufusayo emahhostela nokungathi nxa ungabhulwa, ukapakele kulo lonke elaseGauteng nalapha KwaZulu-Natal. Konke lokhu sikwenza ngoba sazibophezela emgomweni wokuthula nasekubekeni phambili intuthuko yabantu.

Somlomo

Lezi zinhlelo asizenzi nje kwaboHlanga kuphela, kepha siyakwazi ukuhlanganisa amasiko, izinkolo kanjalo nezizwe ezahlukene. Isibonelo nje, ngokubambisana nabe-Sivananda World Peace Foundation, sisabalalisa izifundo, umoya wobunye, ukuhloniphana kanye nokubuyisana. Lokhu kubambisana kunezithelo ezinhle kakhulu ngoba imiphakathi yethu isikwazile ukusuka ekubekezelelaneni yaya ekwamukelaneni. Asigcini lapho kodwa futhi siba nemihlangano ehlanganisa abalimi, imiphakathi kanye namakhosi ezizwe. Lokhu kumqoka ngoba umlando wethu wasibeka endaweni embi lapho kukhona ukubhekana ngeziqu zamehlo phakathi kwemiphakathi eyahlukene uma kuziwa odabeni lomhlaba. Okunye esazibophezela kukho wukuba sekhaleni lentuthuko. Sekungumlando ukuthi ngonyaka ka-2012 ngethula kule Ndlu uhlelo lweNgonyama Rural Development Forum nokuthi kuwo lowo nyaka inhlangano ye-African Union ngaphansi kohlelo lwe-NEPAD yanginxusa ukuba ngibe ngomunye wabasunguli be-African Rural Development Forum, eyayithathisela kwi-Ngonyama Rural Development Forum. Emhlanganweni we-NEPAD owawuse-Benin, ngamema uNdunakulu wesiFundazwe ngaleso sikhathi, uDoktela uMkhize, nokwathi ngenxa yokuxineka, wathumela uMnuz Nhlanhla Ngidi onguMqondisi-Jikelele.

Okwaba yishwa lapha, wukuthi emuva kokwenza lokho engangicabanga ukuthi kulungile, nginesiqiniseko sokuthi siyahambisana nohulumeni odabeni lwentuthuko yezindawo zasemakhaya, njengokuvumelana kwethu, kwabe sekuqhamuka izinhlaka ezimbili lapho uhulumeni esekubona kuwubuhlakani ukuba nezinhlaka ezimbili ezilima ngokwehlukana.

Ukuqhamuka kwalezi zinhlaka zakamuva kwafekelisa imizamo engangiyenza ngokwazi lesi sifundazwe sami. Ne-Ngonyama Rural Development Forum eyayihlanganisa wonke amakhosi athintekayo ngoba phela lezi zindawo okukhulunywa ngazo zingezoBukhosi yabe isiphenduka ikheswa nalapho sasesinukwa ngokuzenza uhlaka lwesine lukahulumeni, okuyinto eyaba buhlungu yadumaza kakhulu. Lokhu ngikubalula, hhayi ngoba nginenhloso yokuphoxa, kepha ngizama ukuveza ukuthi isinqumo sikahulumeni sokuqhamuka nolwakhe uhlelo olwehlukile asuke kulolu olunabantu abathintekayo nayeyingxenye yokucatshangwa nokusungulwa kwalo, kusidalela inkinga. Nanamuhla sisebenza ne-NEPAD ohlelweni oluvunywe ngoMengameli base-Afrika abebehlangene e-Addis Ababa ngoMasingana, kepha uhulumeni naye ngakolunye uhlangothi wenza okwehlukile. Njengoba sisebenzisana ne-NEPAD Climate Change Fund, siqwashisa amakhosi kanye nezizwe ngesimo sokuguquguquka kwesimo sezulu, sikwenza sazi kamhlophe ukuthi abantu abathinteka kakhulu yilaba abasezindaweni zethu.

Somlomo

Kuyisicelo sami ukuthi kungabi khona ukuncintisana phakathi kukahulumeni kanye noBukhosi. Asikho isidingo salokho ngoba ukwenza njalo kuchitha isikhathi nemali ngokungenasidingo. Lokhu kuncintisana engaziyo ukuthi kuyenzeka lapho kukhona abanuka uBukhosi ngokuthi sebuzenza uhulumeni, kunengozi yokudida abantu okungabe bayazuza ngalokho esikwenzayo egameni labo. Njengoba ngasho ngonyaka odlule kanye nango-2012, amakhosi amele intuthuko. Akekho ongakuphikisa ukuthi iningi lezikole kulesi sifundazwe zakhiwe yiwo amakhosi nemiphakathi yawo. Lokhu nje kukodwa kukhomba khona ukuthi uBukhosi lobu bunombono futhi buyadinga ukunikwa indlebe kulokho okubuphakamisayo.

Ndunankulu Macingwane

Kulesi sigaba ngiyafisa ukukhuluma gqo kuwe kanye nakuhulumeni wakho. Angiqale ngituse ukusebenzisana esiba nakho nxashana kunemikhosi yesizwe efana nalowo omkhulukazi woMhlanga oba minyaka yonke. Iningi liyavumelana ukuthi lomkhosi usukwelinye izinga hayi kuphela nxa kuyiwa kwezokuvakasha kepha nasekuqinisekiseni ukuthi lokho okungamagugu ethu akushabalali. Njengoba ngihlale ngikubalula kubo bonke abaphathiswa abasuke belusa ukwenzeka kwalo mkhosi, ngomkhosi woMhlanga sihleli phezu kwegolide elingakwazi ukuhlanganisa ukuvikelwa nokuqhakambiswa kwamasiko kanjalo nokudala amathuba emisebenzi ikakhulukazi kulabo abangamaciko emsebenzini yezandla. Empeleni kungenxa yalombono ngazijuba ngaya kuhulumeni kazwelonke nganxusa ukuba azosilekela ekuthuthukiseni ingqalasizinda ukuze lomkhosi ube yimpendulo nasezinkingeni esibhekene nazo manje njengakho nje ukuswelakala kwamathuba emisebenzi.

Ngiyafisa futhi ukutusa ukusebenzisana okuhle noMnyango wakwa Cogta lapho senza umsebenzi omkhulu wesiko lapho ngibeka khona amakhosi ezizwe. Okwenzeka kule minyaka kuyaveza ukuthi nembala nxa sibambisene akukho okungasehlula. Ngiyazi ukuthi ngikhuluma egameni lamakhosi ezizwe lawa esesedlule kuwo uma ngidlulisa ukubonga kwizisebenzi zomnyango kanjalo naku Mphathiswa uDube –Ncube .

Ngiselapho ngiyafisa ukuncoma uMnyango wezempilo ngokuba kule minyaka nje embalwa ngavuselela umkhosi woSwela ude useduze kwami. Iqiniso lithi kulesi sifundazwe asikafelwa muntu nje kungenxa yokusebenzisana esinakho noMnyango wakho Dinangwe.

Somlomo

Maphakathi nenkulumo yami ngiphawulile ngokubambisana esibe nakho ne IEC. Lokhu kubambisana bekungeke kube nezithelo ezitheni ukube besingekho isandla nokungenelela kuka-Mhlonishwa uWillies Mchunu obengumabizwa asabele uma kukhona esikhala ngakho. Ngiyakhumbula nje ukubambisana okwaba kuhle noMnyango ngesikhathi senza isiko lenhlambuluko nengabe sengidabuka ukuzwa ukuthi enye yezinsizwa owawufolosa ngayo kulowo msebenzi Macingwane, uMnuz Ronnie Bhengu owayeyinhloko yoMnyango yabe isisishiya emhlabeni.

Ngiyafisa futhi ukubonga eMnyangweni engicabanga ukuthi awunakekile kepha owenza umsebenzi oncomekayo. Lona nguMnyango wakwa Social Development. Ndunankulu ingalo yalo Mnyango inde ifika lapho kungafiki muntu khona ngoba ixazulula izinkinga eziqondene nabantu ngqo. Kuyasithokozisa ukuhlale sizwa futhi sibona ukuthi lo Mnyango uyaqhubeka nokufinyelela ezindaweni zakobantu , uthinte nezimpilo zabantu basemakhaya kanye nabadala. Ngiyafisa ukuwugqugquzela lo Mnyango ukuba usondele kakhulu kulabo bethu abaphila nokukhubazeka ngoba ziningi izinkinga ababhekana nazo. Kanti esizweni sonke nje, ngiyanxusa ukuba siqikelele ukuba labo bethu abaphila nokukhubazeka nabo bangasali ngaphandle uma sekufika ezibonelelweni, isibonelo nje, odabeni lwemisebenzi kanye nezindlu.

Ngisekulo udaba lwezindlu ngiyafisa ukubonga okwenziwa nguhulumeni yize siyizwa imibiko yasebegila imikhuba. Iqiniso lithi lokhu okwenziwa nguhulumeni kokuhlinzekela abantu ngezindlu kuyinto enkulu neyinqabakutholwa kuleli lakithi. Siyawugqugquzela uMnyango obhekele ezezindlu oholwa ngu Mhlonishwa u Ravi Pillay ukuba ungadikibali ekwenzeni okuhle.

Udaba lwezolimo lumqoka kakhulu emnothweni kanjalo nasekukhiqizeni ukudla okwanele. Yingakho ke Mhlonishwa Xaba umsebenzi wakho umqoka. Ngonyaka owedlule kule-Ndlu ngizibophezele ukusebenzisana nawe hayi nje kuphela njengomlimi, kepha ngoba ngiyazi ukuthi okuphetheyo kumqoka kangakanani. Yebo, kusemandleni akho ukuba uhlanganise abalimi abamnyama nabamhlophe ekuthini babe nombono owodwa. Kukuwe futhi ukuthi uqinisekise ukuthi kuyalinywa izwe liba luhlaza nokuthi kube khona intuthuko ebonakalayo ezindaweni zasemakhaya. Kepha njengoba ngihlale ngikusho kuwe nakozakwenu lokho ungakwenza kangcono uma ungasondelana noBukhosi kanye namakhosi ezizwe nokuyiwo ahlala nabantu okumele bahlomule.

Akuyona imfihlo ukuthi umhlaba okuthiwa ngowasemakhaya kanye nabantu laba okumele bathuthukiswe batholakala ezindaweni zoBukhosi . Kungalesi sizathu Nonkosi nanamuhla ngisasho ukuthi asihambe ndawonye ngoba iminyaka emihlanu le mincane kanti izinkinga zinkulu nawe uzifice zikhona. Isisho sase Afrika esithi ‘ nxashana ufuna ukuhamba ngamandla hamba wedwa, kepha uma ufuna ukuhamba ibanga elide , hamba neningi’ simqoka lapha kwezolimo yikho ngithi kasihambe ndawonye ukuze amaphupho akho, akahulumeni nawesizwe aphumelele.

Umnyango wakho Ndiyema umqoka ekuthuthukisweni komnotho wakwaZulu-Natal. Imizamo yakho siyayibona futhi siyakutusa kulokho nokwenzayo. Kuyisifiso sami ukuthi kube khona ukucabanga nzulu ngokuthi konje kungenziwani ukuze izindawo ezifana namalokishi nazo zithuthuke. Esikubone kwenzeka lapho kunokushayisana phakathi kwabokufika kuleli kanye nezakhamuzi, ikakhulukazi ezindaweni zasemalokishini azungeze iTheku zibikezela inkinga, zikhonga okusina kusijeqeza. Yize kukhona ubunswelaboya , iqiniso lithi ezinye izikhalazo nesililo zisukela kwezomnotho wendawo. Osomabhizinisi emalokishini bazibona benganakiwe babuka futhi nokuthi imithetho yezwe kayibavikeli.

Ngiyakunxusa ke Ndiyema yize ngazi ukuthi usuziqalile izinhlelo zokuba nabasemalokishini babe yingxenye yokuthuthuka komnotho, iqiniso lithi kusekuningi okumele kwenziwe. Njengobukhosi sikhona ukukwelekelela ngoba siyakholelwa ekuthini ukuthula kudala intuthuko.

Ndunankulu

Ngiyazi ukuthi nino Mhlonishwa uNkonyeni imfundo isemithanjeni yenu njengabantu abangothisha. Ngakho ngiyakuqonda ukudumala enaba nakho ngemiphumela kaMatikuletsheni yanyakenye engabanga sezingeni lalokho enanikuhlelile. Sonke sadumala kepha ukuphawula nokungenelela kwenu kwasinika ithemba lokuthi lokhu bekuyisikhinsi nje, okuhle ngokuzayo. Siyawubonga umbono eninawo ngezemfundo kulelisi sifundzwe futhi sinyanxusa ukuthi kube khona ukusebenzisana phakathi kwenu izinyunyana kanye nabazali. Kumalungu ezinyunyana kanye nabazali umyalezo wami uthi akekho uhulumeni ongaphumelela yedwa kwezemfundo, uyaludinga usizo lwethu sonke. Noma ngabe kanivumelani ngokuthile, kepha sonke kulo nyaka asenzele ingane le esifisa ukuba ibe yisakhamuzi esiqotho nesicije ngolwazi ngomuso. Nani zingane, yazini ukuthi lokhu eninikwa khona kuyisipho esedlulayo. Sibambeni nisivikele ngoba njengazo zonke izinto ezikhona emhlabeni isikhathi enikuso sizodlula.

EMnyangweni obhekele ezezimali ngithi qinisani amatomu, niqinisekise ukuthi indibilishi nendibilishi ekhishiwe yenza umsebenzi okuvunyelwene ngawo. Yazini ukuthi uMnyango wenu umi phakathi kwehlazo lapho isifundazwe siphenduka indawo yamaqola kanye nesifundazwe esikwaziyo ukusebenzisa imali ngokuyikho nangobuqotho

Kuwe Macingwane ngenza njengoba ngenza kulabo abakwendulele kwesobuNdunankulu besiFundazwe. Ngelula isandla sokusebenzisana phakathi kukahulumeni, uBukhosi kanye namakhosi ezizwe. Njengomuntu okade eyihamba le ndlela ngiyazi ukuthi kulukhuni kanjani ukwenza wonke umuntu ahlale eneme. Ngethemba uyawakhumbula amazwi engawadlulisa ngosuku lokubekwa kwakho ezinkundleni i “Harry Gwala” . Ngizophinda engakusho ngalelo langa uma ngithi, yenza lokho okungumnikelo wakho esizweni, ukwenze ngawo wonke amandla onawo. Njenge Nkosi yakho ngiyokweseka kulokho okuhlose ukuthuthukisa isizwe. Uma ubona ukuthi akuhambi kahle thela inkalivasi , xosha abangasebenzi , uqashe abawenzayo umsebenzi. Yazi ukuthi iminyaka emihlanu mincane, nciphisa imihlangano ngoba uhulumeni ohlangana njalo awuvamile ukuphumelela kunalokho ugcina uzivumela uphinde uziphikise ngezinto ezisobala.

Macingwane

Awusekho umhlangano odingekayo ukuyodingida okufunwa ngabantu ngoba usizi lwabo luyaziwa. Osekusele yikuthi kule minyaka esele kuhlangatshezwana kanjani nakho. Ngoba phela Macingwane isisu esilambileyo asazi futhi asihloniphi mthetho. Kuyodingeka-ke ukuthi kuphakanyiswe izinyawo ekuhlangabezaneni nezinselelo sonke esizaziyo ukuthi zikhona.

Somlomo

Uma sengiphetha, ngiyafisa ukubalula nje okuthile engibona ukuthi kuyoba kuhle ukuba le Ndlu ikwazi. Mhla zintathu kuNtulikazi 2014, oNdini ngethule umkhankaso wokufaka isicelo esihlangene sikaZulu sokubuyiselwa umhlaba. Lolu daba luphenduke undabamlonyeni kuleli likaMthaniya nangaphandle. Ngiyafisa ukukuqopha ukuthi lokhu asiguquki kukho, impela sizosifaka isicelo. Siyathemba ukuthi uma kukhona ongavumelani nathi uyokwenza njengoba nathi sizokwenza, alandele imigudu yomthetho ebekelwe wonke umuntu. Kulabo abasisolayo kwesikwenzayo, sithi cha uZulu njengazozonke izizwe, unelungelo lokuba nomhlaba. Njegobukhosi asithandi ukubona ezinye izizwe zihlala emiqashweni lapha emapulazini, ngakho siyathemba ukuthi phakathi kwezinto isicelo sethu nxa siphumelela esiyozenza wukuqinisekisa ukuthi lapha KwaZulu-Natal kayikho inkosi noma isizwe esiqube emapulazini. Kithi njengoZulu umhlaba uyikho konke, ungumama nobaba. Emhlabeni yilapho sakha khona imizi sondle khona nemfuyo yawo baba. Emhlabeni yilapho kwakhiwa khona ingqalasizinda ezolekelela thina kanti futhi kusemhlabeni lapho sifihla khona amathambo abathandiweyo bethu. UZulu kanye noBukhosi bunqunu ngaphandle komhlaba ngakho kasingasolwa nxa sizigqokisa, ngoba okwamanje sinqunu, sinjalo nje siyagodola.

Ngiphetha ngokuneluleka ukuthi njengoba niya okhethweni nje ngonyaka ozayo kumqoka ukuthi niziphathe kahle futhi nigweme ukukhuluma amazwi angase avuse uhlevane kubantu. Yamukelani ukuthi kulilungelo labantu ukuba bakhethe labo abazobahola. Ningabaphoqi ngokubasongela noma nibahehe ngezinto obekuvele kumele bazithole njengezakhamuzi. Njengobukhosi sizoqhubeka sisebenzisane ne IEC ekuqinisekiseni ukuthi konke kuhamba kahle ngoba ukhetho noma yiluphi akumele lusho ukufa kubantu kepha kumele lusho ukuphila kangcono, intuthuko nokugxiliswa kwentando yeningi.
