Speech - Minister: The First Meeting of the Minister and Members of Provincila Executive Councils responsible for sport and recreation. - 2 December 2010, Johannesburg

We have in the recent past since our assumptions of the reigns of political office in Sport and Recreation South Africa signalled our intention to review the transformation discourse with a view to provide a fresh perspective and lively debate that take into account issues of equity, equality, excellence, good corporate governance, organisational culture, access for all and responsiveness. The Department is hard at work crafting a document that will give a thorough exposition of what needs to be done for us to achieve our transformation goals. You have surely as we did, observed the discernable under-theorisation and weakening of the recreation component of core-business and mandate. Given the significance of recreation in the livelihood and health of a nation, taking into account the central and utilitarian recreation plays in development and mass participation, we have set aside funds from the budget of the Department to be utilised for the establishment and sustenance of a Ministerial Committee to conduct a diagnosis and suggest a remedy that will be underscored by practical and visible steps, campaigns and programmes. The Ministerial Committee will be appointed in January 2011 and will submit its report by the 31st March 2011.
