Definite Must Read For All : - Implications of the National Development Plan 2030 for South Africa's anti-corruption agencies 14 February 2014 The National Development Plan 2030 (NDP), a product of the presidency’s National Planning Commission (NPC), boldly states that the vision for South Africa in 2030 is a country that has ‘zero tolerance for corruption’. Whether this is achievable remains to be seen, considering the damning evidence of rampant malfeasance and fraud that is detailed in Corruption Watch’s 2013 report. The NDP makes several recommendations in terms of tackling corruption, but two of these are particularly applicable to anti-corruption agencies such as the Directorate for Priority Crimes Investigations (DCPI) – also known as the Hawks, the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) and the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA). The plan states that key to fighting corruption is building a resilient anti-corruption system that is unencumbered by political interference; and ensuring that pub ...

¶ Notable Brahmins Satya Nadella “ Satya Nadella Brahmin Chief Executive Officer – Microsoft Corporation Satya Nadella is a Telugu Brahmin. He was born in Hyderabad in 1967. His father was an IAS Officer and was part of the National Planning Commission during 2004-09.

Are Deputy Govs Jinxe? Dr. Sarah Alade At a period when hopes were high that a new Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) could emerge from within the central bank, the recent nomination of Managing Director of Zenith Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, as the next CBN boss may have shattered the hopes of the current deputy governors vying for the slot, James Emejo writes Except for Dr. Joseph Sanusi who was appointed CBN Governor in 1999 by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, having held the position of deputy governor previously before he left the central bank, subsequent administrations have practically ignored the CBN deputy governors in their search for who to install as the apex bank boss. Before his appointment to replace Joseph Sanusi as CBN Governor, former CBN Governor, Charles Soludo was only an outstanding economist and Economic Adviser to President Obasanjo as well as the Chief Executive of the National Planning Commission. Obasanjo at that time sidelined the four deputy governors and appointed Solu ...
The post-2015 Development Agenda: new goals, no goals - or own goals? The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), for all their doubtless faults, had this one great virtue: they encapsulated the whole, sprawling and often rather arcane development issue into eight universal, simple, concrete, comprehensible and measurable development targets, to be reached mainly by 2015. From halving absolute poverty and hunger to reducing infant mortality by two-thirds, the goals were clear and tangible, which made them relatively easy to brand and market. Being measurable, they would, of course, quite clearly show success or failure. And as the deadline looms, it is apparent that in sub-Saharan Africa especially, failure will be far more common than success. Even South Africa is struggling. According to the latest MDG progress report by Trevor Manuel’s National Planning Commission (NPC) last year, four of the goals have been achieved, three are likely and one is unlikely to be achieved. The unlikely one is Goal 5: to re ...
AKWA IBOM STATE MINISTRY OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AKS GOVT.

I’m Not An Accidental Politician – Niger Delta Minister, Hon. Godsday Orubebe. Elder Peter Godsday Orubebe, CON, is Honourable Minister, Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs (MNDA) and member, Federal Executive Council, Federal Republic of Nigeria. In order to actualise the 7-Point Agenda of the Yar’Adua administration, the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs was created in 2008, and Elder Orubebe was appointed its pioneer Minister of State. He worked assiduously to establish the infrastructure, the human and the “info” structure required to enable the Ministry turnaround the decades of neglect and under-development that had been the bane of a region responsible for 80 per cent of Nigeria’s revenue. In recognition of his excellent performance the Minister of State, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan appointed him as Honourable Minister of the Ministry in 2010. Prior to this, in 2008, Orubebe was appointed Minister, National Planning Commission (NPC) and Deputy Chair, National Planning Council. During hi ...
Zuma learns that friendship is fleeting Almost 20 years ago to the day, the ANC released its 1994 national election list. At the top of the list was Nelson Mandela, with his preferred successor, Cyril Ramaphosa, second and Thabo Mbeki third. In the two decades since the list was released, much water has passed under the ANC's bridge. Six of those in the top 20 - Mandela, Joe Slovo, Albertina Sisulu, Steve Tshwete, Dullah Omar and Chris Dlamini - have died. Of the remaining 14, only four can be said to be "loyal" to President Jacob Zuma. Ramaphosa stood on his slate at the 2012 Mangaung conference, Justice Minister Jeff Radebe and National Planning Commission chairman Trevor Manuel sit on his cabinet, and Mac Maharaj is his spokesman. Seven are out of favour or highly critical of Zuma. Mbeki is out in the cold after being removed from the presidency. Jay Naidoo is highly critical of the government's service delivery and its failure to deal with poverty. Ronnie Kasrils is an outspoken critic of attempts to ...
Nigerian government adopts mechanism to promote safety, health in aviation industry – Minister Nigeria would partner a WHO based organisation for the project. The Federal Government has adopted financial mechanisms aimed at promoting high health and safety standards in the aviation industry, the Supervising Minister of the National Planning Commission, Bashir Yuguda, said on Friday. The minister was speaking in Abuja at the 12th Plenary of the 36-member countries leading group on innovative financing for development. The financing mechanisms, the minister said, would involve the air ticket levy and an effective aid management strategy under a newly reviewed Official Development Assistance, ODA, policy. He said the levy was in line with the Federal Government’s Transformation Agenda and Nigeria Vision 20:2020, which covered the country’s long-term development blue print in the sector. The levy, the minister pointed out, was not remitted to UNITAID to promote health causes as it is in many countries. ...
Ever since Donald Duke stamped his authority on the politics of Cross River State at the turn of the century, politics in the commercially laid back state has been a staged affair. Now, rumbling between the camps of the governor and the Senate leader is shaking the status quo. Having been zoned by both the PDP and the All Progressive Congress to the Northern Senatorial District of the state which comprises of five local government areas, so many contenders are muting their interest for the post. They include the loyalists of Senator Liyel Imoke and “outsiders” and from their body language; every aspirant is in strong contention no matter irrespective of the odds. Already jostling for the coveted position is an array of influential and powerful politicians from the district. They include Mr. Fidel Ugbo, the serving Secretary of National Planning Commission, Mr. Goddy Agba, the General Manager Crude, NNPC, Professor Ben Ayade, the Senator representing the Northern Senatorial District, Mr. John Odey, for ...
UPSC MAINS CURRENT AFFAIRS - 2013 UNIVERSAL HEALTH COVERAGE AND K. SRINATH HIGH LEVEL EXPERT GROUP REPORT The government outlined plans to increase public financing of health from 1.2% of India’s GDP to 2.5%. The High Level headed by K. Srinath Expert Group submitted its report to the National Planning Commission, describing a vision where every citizen should be entitled to essential healthcare services that will be guaranteed by the Central government. The report shows how it is feasible for India to establish a UHC system within the next ten years. Very welcome plans are already apparently in motion to provide free medicine for all through Public Health Facilities under the National Rural Health Mission. The High Level Expert Group report includes the following key recommendations: k.srinath committee: • Increase public expenditures on health to at least 2.5% by the end of the 12th plan, and to at least 3% of GDP by 2022 • Ensure availability of free essential medicines by increasing public spe . ...
African National Congress (ANC) deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa says the National Development Plan (NDP) which government and the ruling party have endorsed as the country's vision for the next 20 years, is not the Freedom Charter. Ramaphosa and party secretary general Gwede Mantashe continued to defend the plan at students' organisation South African Students Congress (SASCO)'s 22nd anniversary celebrations in Johannesburg. Tripartite alliance members Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) and the South African Communist Party (SACP) have criticised the contentious economic aspects of the plan. Cosatu affiliates say it steps away from the historic Freedom Charter that has guided the party and some of its contents are the opposition Democratic Alliance (DA)'s policies. However, Mantashe and Ramaphosa have denied this suggestions. Ramaphosa who is also part of the National Planning Commission (NPC) says it is a tool to alleviate poverty, inequality and unemployment. “We need to be clear, the ND ...
A major policy document — the National Development Plan — is being both lauded and condemned by people who don’t know what it says, writes Steven Friedman ACROSS the spectrum, we are so obsessed with personalities that, even when we think we are talking about policies, we are often talking about people. This is why many of us heatedly debate a document that few have read. The latest tripartite alliance summit announced that government planning would take place within the state and that the National Planning Commission (NPC) would be an advisory body. This prompted alarm in business and happiness on the left of the alliance; it was assumed to mean that the NPC, author of the business-friendly National Development Plan (NDP), would be downgraded and its functions taken over by heavy-handed bureaucrats. But business has no cause for despair and the left no reason to cheer. The summit decision means precisely nothing — and the reaction to it shows that debate on the NPC and NDP does more to confuse th ...

Ministry for Youth and Sports has proposed Rs 1.26 billion budget for the fiscal year 2013/2014. This is almost the double amount from the last fiscal year. The ministry has demanded additional amount of Rs 300 million on top of ceiling budget allocated by National Planning Commission. Ministry’s budget for the fiscal year 2012/ 13 is 660 million. Secretary at the ministry Hari Prasad Nepal said that out of the total budget around 1.2 million has been allocated for National Sports Council. Likewise, around 100 million has been set aside for the programmes run by the ministry like President Running Shield, school level coaches training and seminars.

will it happen in reality.Nepal's Mid-hill highway - 10 locations chosen for hill cities! The government has selected 10 locations along the Mid-Hills Highway and north-south link roads in all five development regions to establish new cities. However, the National Planning Commission (NPC) has yet to approve the proposed sites. Based on a feasibility study carried out by RIBS Engineering Consultant, the Department of Urban Development and Building Construction has proposed Phidim (in Panchthar district), Basantapur (Terhathum), Khurkot (Sindhuli), Baireni Galchhi (Dhading), Dumre (Tanahun), Burtibang (Baglung), Chaurjahari (Rukum), Raakam (Dailekh), Sanfebagar (Achham) and Patan (Baitadi) as potential locations to set up modern cities. The locations will have a capacity to accommodate a population of 30,000-50,000. The planned modern cities are targeted at reducing the trend of migration from the mountains and hills to the Tarai besides increasing the possibility of developing hilly areas having economic ...

The 2013 annual Budget speech will be presented by Minister Pravin Gordhan on 27 February this year. The question being asked is: what is he likely to do to ensure that Government has enough money to pay all the costs of running the public aspects of the country? This question is particularly interesting when one considers that, along with everything else, the proposals made by the National Planning Commission may need some specific funding.     As usual, we can only speculate at this stage. Like last year, with the increased capital gains tax inclusion rate and increased dividends tax rate, together with the proposed increased royalty and interest withholding tax rates, the Minister is likely to surprise us on the day.     So let's look at the options: Two years ago (2011) Minister Gordhan mentioned the possibility of, amongst other things, an increased VAT rate to fund the NHI (a national health system). South Africa's VAT rate is low relative to many developed countries (the average indirect tax (e ...

Cyril Ramaphosa-working closely with JZ from the National Planning Commission function allowed him 2 dig deep in2 JZ's mind
President Jacob Zuma appointed a National Planning Commission in May of 2010, led by Minister Trevor Manuel in the hopes of pulling together a National Development Plan (NDP). At its 53rd National Elective Conference, the ANC adopted the NDP in favour of its incumbent president. He came to power promising to tackle unemployment and corruption, but has accomplished little in that regard. Even with a growing lack of enthusiasm for his leadership, Zuma hopes that the plan will be his longstanding legacy. The plan aims to bring about transformation in order to achieve a worthy spirit of confidence and trust, a growing economy and expanding opportunities to the many of the disenfranchised South Africans who continue to live under less desirable conditions. The NDP paints a handsome picture of a prosperous South Africa and speaks volumes about the political commitment in attaining such transformation. Briefly, the plan has two high level objectives. The first is to reduce the number of people who live in househ ...

IMBADU MAWABA, actually the Chinese Renaissance among other things invented printing press that learnt, adopted and helped to advance European Renaissance. "Like the Italian Renaissance, the achievements of the Tang and Song had roots in an earlier time - the Han Dynasty (202 B.C. to A.D. 220). After the Han collapsed, China experienced turmoil. When order was restored, Chinese culture flourished. The Chinese invented gunpowder and printing. The most famous Chinese poets of all time wrote literary masterpieces. Breakthroughs were made in architecture, painting, and pottery" (European Renaissance and Reformation 1300 - 1600). President Thabo Mbeki declared the 21st Century as an African Century in 2000 and 2001 to advance a new African Renaissance that Mandela introduced in 1994 in Tunisia at an OAU meeting. The ideas that made an African Renaissance entrenched in the policy and governance followed.

The 73rd Constitutional Amendment Act: The idea that produced the 73rd Amendment [15] was not a response to pressure from the grassroots, but to an increasing recognition that the institutional initiatives of the preceding decade had not delivered, that the extent of rural poverty was still much too large and thus the existing structure of government needed to be reformed. It is interesting to note that this idea evolved from the Centre and the state governments. It was a political drive to see PRIs as a solution to the governmental crises that India was experiencing. The Constitutional (73rd Amendment) Act, passed in 1992 by the Narasimha Rao government, came into force on April 24, 1993. It was meant to provide constitutional sanction to establish "democracy at the grassroots level as it is at the state level or national level". Its main features are as follows [16]: • The Gram Sabha or village assembly as a deliberative body to decentralised governance has been envisaged as the foundation of the Panc ...
SOME USEFUL TIPS FOR ASPIRANTS PLANNING TO TAKE THE EXAM.. The Civil Services Mains Examination 2012 is yet another indication of the pattern of testing to be pursued by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to select civil servants for the most populous democracy on earth. The number of questions that test the analytical ability of candidates has increased when compared to that of last year in the general studies paper. In General Studies Paper I, the number of questions to test analytical ability has increased to 181 marks this year when compared to 111 marks in the previous mains examination. In General Studies Paper II too, such questions have increased to 210 when compared to 117 last year. The total marks for each of the general studies mains paper is 300. December and January are crucial for aspirants to focus on the preparation for the next prelims, as a chunk of the candidates whohave appeared for the mains will have to sit again for the prelims.

ACCREDITATION OF ALL HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTES TO BE MADE MANDATORY FROM 2013 Accreditation for all higher educational institutions will be made mandatory from next year.

Cyril Ramaphosa is part of the National Planning Commission so I expect him to bring the Plan to life as the DP of the ANC
Ramaphosa can now drive the National Planning Commission implementation following Manuel's exit from the NEC.
So glad Cyril is new deputy. Change is needed. Now roll out National Planning Commission and let's start to implement .
The ANC will support the National Development Plan, but will it support small business.

Why am I supporting re-election of President JZ Prof. Jacob Zuma will go down in the history of a post-apartheid South Africa as one who was first to be decisive on corruption. At one point, many sought to define him as the symbol of corruption, yet no president has ever been this decisive and acted without fear of reprisal on the subject matter. He fired ministers and relieved Bheki Cele from his job as national police commissioner. He even acted against MECs. Under Zuma the subject of HIV/Aids, a hushed theme in days gone by, is dealt with honestly and has become an almost peripheral issue. It is no longer used as a political tool to attack the ANC. His decisive leadership increased the chances of many to benefit from antiretroviral roll-outs. He led from the front in subjecting himself to multiple testing. Zuma has given birth to the National Planning Commission under the leadership of Trevor Manuel, which aims to cast a long-term vision for South Africa’s future, and which is informed by proper rese ...
To-day, I had the opportunity to participate at a symposium on formulating full-fledged budget for the remaining eight-month period of FY 2012/13 organized by and at the invitation of Rt. Hon’ble Dr. Babu Ram Bhattarai at National Planning Commission hall at 1:00 pm. The deliberation was extremely lively and fully productive that resolutely emphasized on ‘formulating full budget but with forging consensus’ among major political parties. All speakers including myself had propagated the said idea, which was readily endorsed by all participants comprised of eminent economists, private sector representatives, and the high level policy makers representing Government of Nepal. Later speaking from the chair during the concluding session, the incumbent Prime-Minister, popularly known as a thorough gentleman and soft spoken scholar, made a commitment that he would pursue and galvanize the support from the opposition political parties to forge consensus for formulating a full-fledged budget. Best of luck to ...
Even 'directionless' supporters do not support Cyril Ramaphosa for any ANC top 6 position. Means we are not wealthy represented in the National Planning Commission. Revolution is over.

National Assembly, Parliament: 16 August 2012 Madam House Chair, Minister, let us try to have a serene and a man to man discussion on an issue on which the whole country is trying to have some sanity and pragmatism. Common sense would dictate that you do not put a trade unionist in charge of economic development. I always felt different and I do because our Minister is a man who has brought a gift of intellect and has her heart in the right place. Let us call a spade a spade. Yes, the youth wage subsidy will introduce greater flexibility in the labour market and it will hurt some people. The very flexibility of the labour market that President Mbeki tasked the then Deputy President Zuma to bring about with amendments to the Labour Relations Act, and Deputy President Zuma failed - as he did with the campaign on moral regeneration of the country. Why is that necessary? Because it is essential to achieve the very goals of the National Planning Commission tabled here less than 24 hours ago. There has been a w ...

President Jacob Zuma, though I would not nominate him but it will be a grave fault not to acknowledge some of his government work since 2009. For me, in terms of setting the institutional changes necessary in a democracy I will give him 70%, 1. Established the National Planning Commission: Focusing on long term plan for the Republic. for this I give him 90%, perhaps he needs the second term to implement, but can he? time will tell. 2. Established the Rural Development Ministry. Not only has the ministry been a right step in the right direction, but equally its programmes have been of great relief to most who have never since democracy since 1994. CRDP programmes have been the best programmes of government since 1999. 3. He established the Presidential Hotline. This is a correct gesture to speed up service delivery, it is also good to make people feel heard! 4. Changed the state of the Nation from 11 am to 19:00 pm. This was an excellent move to promote the observation by the masses of our democracy at wor ...

Trevor Manuel, Head of National Planning Commission, when are we seeing u in the presidential candidate seat?
The former Minister of Works, Senator Sanusi Dagash has been forced into an exile abroad after the general elections last year, no thanks to threats by the Boko Haram Islamist group. Sources close to the former minister said he was being hounded by the terror group over his support for President Goodluck Jonathan in the last presidential elections in April 2011. The threats were so serious that he did even feel safe in his Abuja residence, not to talk of visiting his home state, Borno, a source said. Daggash , an architect , was elected a member of the House of Representatives in 1999, and became Senator for Borno North in 2003. President Umaru Yar’Adua appointed him Minister for the National Planning Commission of Nigeria in July 2007, and relieved him of his post in October 2008. He was again reappointed as Minister for Works in April 2010 by Acting President Goodluck Jonathan. He was said to have worked assiduously to help elect President Jonathan, who at the time of the April election was serving o ...

History General Mariano Alvarez, the youngest town of the Province of Cavite is formerly a part of the Municipality of Carmona. This municipality was named after General Mariano Alvarez, one of the foremost sons of the province. He was a native of the town of Noveleta and he played a vital role during the Spanish Revolution. It was previously called Carmona Resettlement Project and was under the direct management of the People’s Homesite and Housing Corporation (PHHC). This project started in March 1968 because of the need to clear the Quezon Memorial Park, Diliman, Quezon City of different shanties and other illegal constructions build on it. The PHHC prepared the basic development concepts with the National Planning Commission and the Department of Health comprising the Planning Group. The said group prescribed a minimum size of 12 x 12 or a total of 144 square meters for every family to be relocated in the area. On July 3, 1968, the fist seven families were admitted in the project. The Department of ...
The National Planning Commission is a cover up for the plans of imperialism, under the guise of public consultation- the essence is to give the capitalist terror apparatus a new lease of life- long ago determined by the US imperalist- Harvard team, agents of Anglo American and JP Morgan Chase and other gangsters.

Here is a list of some ministries that are of no importance in our lives and should be scrapped immediately. These ministries are zapping our resources with little or no value to add. However, we first must amend the section of the 1999 constitution (as amended) that allows a minister from every state. These ministries below should be scrapped forthwith. 1. Ministry of women affairs (Discrimination on gender bases) 2. Ministry of Information (Obsolete, fashionable under military) 3. Ministry of Police Affairs (Clashing with Interior Affairs Ministry) 4. Ministry of Water Resources (Water is should be Local govt biz) 5. Ministry of Special Duties. (Of no relevance and benefit) These ministries below are only fit to be directorates. 1.

Extra budgetary spending: Finance, police affairs ministries, others risk reps’ hammer by Jacob Segun Olatunji and Kolawole Daniel, Abuja The House of Representatives Committee on Public Accounts, on Monday, threatened to wield the big stick on 18 ministries, departments and agencies over their failure to appear before the committee to defend the N16.7 billion excess expenditure allegation levelled against them by the Office of the Auditor General of the Federation as contained in its report for 2006.

Govt finances leaking badly - Dion George Dion George 16 May 2012 DA MP says few ministers consider attending SCOPA hearings a high priority The people's money must be spent with care Note to editors: This is an extract based on a speech to be delivered by DA spokesperson on the Standing Committee on Public Accounts, Dr Dion George MP, during today's debate on the Performance Monitoring and Evaluation budget vote. This year, an amount of R174 million rand is budgeted to improve government service delivery through performance monitoring and evaluation. A further R376 million is budgeted for the National Youth Development Agency. To test whether previous allocations of the people's money to these functions have been wisely spent, we need to ask whether service delivery is improving and youth unemployment is reducing. Unfortunately, the answers are no. The Democratic Alliance agrees with the National Planning Commission that we require urgent measures to address our most pressing needs, particularly high lev ...
