SANParks Announces Free Access Week Dates For 2021

SANParks Announces Free Access Week Dates For 2021

South African National Parks (SANParks), together with Total Energies and FNB will be hosting the 16th annual SA National Parks Week from 22 to 28 November 2021. The free access will only be valid until Friday 26 November at the following national parks – Addo, Kgalagadi, Kruger and the Tsitsikamma section of the Garden Route National Park.

SANParks Acting Chief Executive Officer, Luthando Dziba said, “SA National Parks Week is an annual campaign that gives all South African citizens the opportunity to enter most of the parks managed by SANParks for free, with the exclusion of Boulders section at Table Mountain National Park as well as accommodation facilities and tourist activities.”

Dziba said, “The week is meant to cultivate a sense of pride in South Africa’s natural, cultural and historical heritage and a deeper appreciation of biodiversity. It is important for South Africans to visit and know the importance of national parks.”

There is a growing need for national parks to be relevant, particularly to young people and communities living adjacent to parks. Dziba said, that “through our Socio-Economic Transformation programmes and our Expanded Public Works Programme, we work closely with communities living adjacent to national parks in a quest to be more inclusive in our management of protected areas.

This inclusivity encompasses providing access to parks for cultural use as well as exposing young people to the different career options in conservation and tourism.”

Since the programme started in 2006, some 591 234 South Africans have been afforded the opportunity to enter national parks. Every year SANParks aims to increase the number of citizens that are granted free access to national parks however due to the COVID-19 pandemic the number of free access guests that the parks are able to cater for will be subject to gate quotas and extra visitor management procedures will be in place to manage visitor volumes.

Visit a national park this year for free during SA National Parks Week, to see what it has to offer and do your part by getting to know your national parks. #SANationalParksWeek and #LiveYourWild

Saldanha Bay Municipality’s response to the Witteklip Community Committee

The Saldanha Bay Municipality herewith wants to clarify and inform the community around the protest action due to the eviction of illegal land invaders. The Municipality wants to emphasise that illegal land invasion and land grabbing cannot be tolerated as it infringes on the rights of law-abiding citizens, creates disorder and is against the law. The Municipality however understands the plight of the poor, but wants to emphasise that approved processes must be followed to systematically and sustainably address this problem that is currently experienced in all our wards, and in fact in all South Africa.

Background information:

On 2 April 2021, persons were found erecting illegal structures on Portion 10 of Erf 132 in Witteklip, Vredenburg. This land was originally set out for the development of 1 155 erven and possible top structures.

Saldanha Bay Municipality’s law enforcement department managed to remove six of the 12 illegal land invaders. On 3 April 2021, four additional illegal structures were erected, totalling ten land invaders who refused to move.

A court interdict was obtained from the Cape Town High Court to stop further invasion, giving Saldanha Bay Municipality and the South African Police Services (SAPS) the right to remove any further structures on the property. In addition, the Municipality also approached the High Court for an eviction order to remove the ten illegal land invaders. Following the successful application, an order was given on 13 July 2021 that instructed invaders to remove their structures and vacate the property by 31 July 2021. Failure to do so would have resulted in the Sheriff and law enforcement agencies removing persons and structures from the property on 7 August 2021.

This eviction order to remove the ten (10) structures was executed by 11 August 2021 and provided for the eviction of all other persons occupying the property.

The Municipal Manager met with various representatives of the illegal occupants and the main reasons given was that, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, people were evicted from their backyard dwelling.

Public protests that included the burning of tyres, stoning and the burning of a vehicle occurred during this time. The representatives of the evicted persons claimed that this was not their doing as they were looking for a peaceful solution and condemned the violence incited. The SAPS is currently investigating these occurrences. The Municipality intends to pursue criminal charges against those who incited the violence.

Memorandum:

On 8 September 2021, Witteklip community members marched to the Saldanha Bay Municipal building in Vredenburg in support and handed over a memorandum to the Municipal Manager, containing the following points:

  • Request for alternative accommodation for the evicted persons;
  • Reimbursement of all confiscated and damaged material and other personal belongings; and
  • Expediting the allocation of 300 serviced sites with communal services.

The group was subsequently informed by the Municipal Manager that an official response by Saldanha Bay Municipality will be given in seven working days. A petition committee meeting was held to consider the content of the memorandum that was handed to the Municipality.

Saldanha Bay Municipality’s response to the Witteklip Community Committee is as follows:

  1. Request for alternative accommodation for the evicted persons

Response:

o     The only housing activity currently approved is the Witteklip development 1st Phase (197).

o     No circumventing of the housing database queue is allowed.

o     The occupants of the ten illegal structures will be allowed to stay with friends and family or landlords as backyard dwellers.

o     A donor came forward that will financially assist each of the ten (10) evicted illegal structure occupants, as per the eviction order, with R500 per month for six months towards their rent. Saldanha Bay Municipality will facilitate this process.

Although Saldanha Bay Municipality is sympathetic towards the plight of the ten families affected, it is important to note the Municipality is unable to fund these activities due to legislative constraints. All spending without approval from the Department of Human Settlements is considered as irregular and unauthorised expenditure and will be subject to interrogation and repayment.

  1. Reimbursement of all confiscated and damaged material and other personal belongings

Response:

o     The owners of the ten informal structures to identify their confiscated and/or damaged material at the municipal store.

o     Saldanha Bay Municipality will assist with the transportation of the material.

o     A donor is making funds available to assist with some building material.

  1. Expediting the allocation of 300 serviced sites with communal services.

Response:

o     The Department of Human Settlements was requested to assist in the fast tracking of this development.

o     The waiting list and conditions prescribed by the Department of Human Settlements must however be adhered to.

Saldanha Bay Municipality will not tolerate any land invasions within its jurisdiction. Our plea to the community is to respect the rule of law and the processes prescribed.

Housing remains a National and Provincial government mandate. The Municipality performs an agency function for the Western Cape Government’s Department of Human Settlements. The Saldanha Bay Municipality will always endeavour to assist our inhabitants but must do so within the confines of the laws that regulates the municipal sphere.

    Saldanha Bay Municipality launches Recycling Enterprise and Education Project (REEP)

    Saldanha Bay Municipality launches Recycling Enterprise and Education Project (REEP)

    Saldanha Bay Municipality partnered with Pick n Pay and PETCO to support an innovative recycling pilot project in George Kerridge, Vredenburg.

    Since 2016, the municipality’s kerbside recycling collection service has been running well, reaching over 40% participation of households in middle and upper-income suburbs. However, in high-density, lower-income areas, average participation is below 15%.

    The Recycling Enterprise and Education Project (REEP) encourages residents in George Kerridge to participate in recycling by helping to feed a hungry child. In exchange for each bag of recyclables given by households to the mobile collector, a donation will be made to the Masiphathisane Primary School feeding fund.

    Co-sponsoring the pilot with Pick n Pay’s ‘People and Planet’ sustainability programme, is PETCO, the plastics recycling organisation. PETCO sponsored a street trolley cart which the recycling collector will use to tour the area.

    A donation to the school will be made on behalf of Pick n Pay for each bag of recyclables given to the collector. The collector is a resident of George Kerridge, hereby providing a local job creation component to the project.

    As a pilot, the project will run for three to six months. If successful, the aim is to continue it and later expand to other areas of the municipality.

    The REEP project aligns with the circular economy – diverting valuable waste materials from landfill into the recycling industry, reducing energy and resource use, and creating employment –  while also helping to feed young learners at school.

    INCENTIVE PROJECT ENCOURAGES LOWER-INCOME AREAS TO PARTICIPATE IN RECYCLING

    In Saldanha Bay Municipality, a new initiative encourages residents in lower-income areas to participate in recycling by feeding hungry schoolchildren in return. By Hugh Tyrrell*

    Since it began in 2016, the kerbside recycling collection service operated by Saldanha Bay Local Municipality has been running well in middle and upper-income suburbs. Each week, householders put out their recyclable materials in a clear bag (provided free by the municipality), which is picked up on the same day as refuse removals. Participation by householders in these suburbs has reached over 40%. This is in line with international research showing that higher income and education corresponds with greater environmental awareness and action, including recycling. In the lower-income suburbs of the the municipality, the recycling participation rate is below 15%. Many of those who do not participate, however, would understand the value of recyclable packaging materials, as they form part of the purchase price of groceries and other items they buy. There is reasonable reluctance to part with their recyclables without some form of compensation in return.

    SALDANHA BAY MUNICIPALITY’S APPEAL TO RESIDENTS FOLLOWING NATIONAL UNREST

    Saldanha Bay Municipality calls on all residents to please remain calm, to reject violence and incitement, and to respect the law during this time of national public unrest.

    At the moment, there has been no looting within the Saldanha Bay Municipal area.

    A strategy is in place to respond to all potential risks within the Saldanha Bay Municipal area. All law enforcement agencies have been deployed to patrol potential hotspot areas and to monitor illegal gatherings and suspicious behaviour. We appeal to residents to report, should they notice such activities, to the South African Police Services on 08600 10111.

    Should any violence break out, we will inform the community accordingly.

    It is important that we do not fall prey to false, unverified or inaccurate information. We urge the public to be weary of fake news spread through social media, including WhatsApp.

    We are busy fighting a deadly third wave of Covid-19 infections, while trying to roll-out life-saving vaccines.

    Let’s remain focussed and move forward.
