to reflect on the EPWP, which is currently in its 15th year of imple-
mentation.
The programme was conceived at the 2003 Growth and Develop-
ment Summit, in which government agreed to grow public employ-
ment programmes (PEPs).
“Consequently the programme provides poverty and income relief
through temporary work for the unemployed in socially useful ac-
tivities across four sectors namely infrastructure, environment and
culture, non-State and social,” Nxesi said.
Nxesi explained that the EPWP is positioned to contribute to gov-

“The programme gives the poor and the unemployed the necessary
skills to survive the harshness of our economy,” he said. EPWP
participant Jerry Nkuna told SAnews that the programme was a life
saver. “After completing matric in 2008, I could not secure employ-
ment and life was tough. EPWP gave me hope. Now I am able to
put food on the table.”
Nkuna not only supports his family but he is now able to do paving,
a skill he learnt while taking part in EPWP. “I am looking forward
to having my own company and employing young people who are
unemployed,” he said.
The EPWP is a nationwide programme covering all spheres of gov-
ernment and State-owned enterprises. It aims to draw significant
numbers of unemployed and unskilled people into productive work
so that they increase their capacity to earn an income.
The participants are employed under the Ministerial Determination:
Expanded Public Works Programme and Code of Good Practice.

VBS Mutual Bank Saga - where


are we now?
Colourful, almost beach like or as if in lounging in the park with umbrellas in the sun. Municipal employ-
ees, members of the South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU) in Burgersfort were still on strike on
Wednesday morning. Residents of the municipality could at the most, buy water. Nothing more. No services,
zilch, nothing.
As reported on page 1, the SAMWU members say there is no progress with regard to their demands regard-
ing proper personnel amalgamation between the erstwhile Fetakgomo and Tubatse municipalities. They say
there is no money to do it as the municipality unlawfully invested R230 million in VBS Mutual Bank. That bank
was put under curatorship and will now be liquidated by court order. The money is gone after the looting of the
bank and will probably not be recovered in any way.
Last week Premier Chupu Mathabatha ordered the suspension of the Fetakgomo Tubatse Local Municipality
Municipal manager and Chief Financial Officer by council decision. That decision had not been taken by the
time of going to press on Thursday 15 November 2018 morning (it is also one of the demands of the strikers),
but was scheduled for later in the day. On Monday a council meeting at Apel descended into chaos instigated
by council members themselves, who took an oath (if they can remember it) to actually govern.
This week the Premier officially opened the Executive Council (Exco) Budget Lekgotla in Bela-Bela Munic-
ipality, Waterberg District. The Budget Lekgotla is held under the theme: Promoting fiscal sustainability in the
province”.
In his opening remarks, Premier Mathabatha urged delegates that “As CEOs, CFOs, HODs and Municipal
Managers, we are called upon to embrace the urgency of a prudent fiscal policy that is able to respond to our
developmental objectives. Such a fiscal policy that is able to assist in ending poverty, addressing the question of
unemployment and bridging the ballooning gap of inequality”.
He urged and warned that strategic planning meetings should never be reduced to talk-shows – this is be-
cause resource allocation always follows the work that was done in those sessions. “If your planning is not up to
scratch, it would mean that resource allocation will be misdirected”, he advised. He emphasised the importance
of proper planning rather than rushing into implementing half-baked plans.
“This Budget Lekgotla is taking place within an environment of the negative publicity emanating from the
much-talked VBS saga. Contrary to what some may want to believe or want us to believe, the VBS story is not
about individuals, neither is it about politics and political point-scoring. The VBS story is about the people”, says
Premier Mathabatha.
“This unfolding nightmare is about ordinary men and women who work very hard to build lives for them-
selves and to secure the future for their children. These are the people whose confidence has been betrayed in

An ‘unfolding the worst possible manner. These are the men and women whose investments have been liquidated by greed
and brazen criminality. The VBS story is about the misuse of public resources. The VBS story is a story about
the total disregard of the laws and prescripts that govern the use and management of public resources”, says

nightmare’ - Premier.
Premier Mathabatha said that his government know that the National Treasury did warn municipalities
against investing in VBS and this was not because the National Treasury was against the imperatives of trans-

Premier Mathabatha formation or against the empowerment of a Black owned Bank. “The reasons for this warning were very clear
and well-articulated to the municipalities. Whilst the law permits municipalities to invest some of their resources
with financial institutions, the law is very clear that such an investment should only be done with a Bank as
defined in the Banks Act. We now all know that municipalities were made aware that VBS was not a registered
Bank in terms of the Banks Act”, Premier Mathabatha alluded.

Tyron, the new champion


The Chrome Masters 2018 tournament took
place at Tubatse Chrome Golf Club last week.
The tournament stretched over two days and
saw more than 80 players compete for the ulti-
mate title of Masters Champion 2018.
Tyron Luck walked away with the prize after a
Birdie on the 18th.
Players enjoyed the sponsor stops along the
course to make a long day’s play a little shorter.
On Friday evening players were entertained by
Jakkie Louw and the competitive spirit made
way for the forging of new friendships that will
continue in years to come.
The management of Golf Club would like to
thank every player, sponsor and contributor who
made the day possible and ensured a success-
ful foundation for the 2019 competition. They
look forward to seeing everyone again.
