COMPOSITION AND FUNCTIONING OF THE BOARD

The Chairperson of the Board, and all other Board members (with the exclusion of the Chief Executive), are independent non-executive directors in the manner described in the King IV Report on Corporate Governance (hereinafter referred to as “King IV”) to ensure the independence of the two positions and the clear definition of roles and responsibilities.

Committee Composition is a significant contributing factor to the performance of a Board of Directors (“Board”). It is crucial for an organisation to get the right mix and balance of individuals to become Members of its Board. The organisation has the following existing Board Committees, which are chaired by and constitute mainly of independent non–executive directors, and the Chief Executive as the ex officio member of the Board:

  • Audit, Finance and Risk Committee,
  • Social and Ethics Committee,
  • Capital Projects and Fixed Assets Committee (Capex),
  • Human Resources and Remuneration Committee (HR and REMCO),
  • Innovation, Technology and Information Committee (ITI); and
  • The Governance Committee (ad hoc committee).

The list of Board and Committee members is shown in Table 5.1. The Board is accountable for the leadership and control of uMngeni-uThukela Water. Its responsibilities include the development, review and monitoring of strategic objectives, the approval of major capital expenditure, risk management, and monitoring of operational and financial performance.  The government of the Republic of South Africa, represented by the Minister, and the Department of Water and Sanitation, is the sole shareholder of uMngeni-uThukela Water.

The Board contracts with the Executive Authority, the Minister, through an annually approved shareholder compact. The Board will continue to actively engage with the shareholder through various forums during the year. A Board Charter (reviewed in 2021) provides a framework for fiduciary duties, responsibilities and overall functioning of the Board. The Board Charter is read in conjunction with:

  • The Public Finance Management Act (Act 1 of 1999), as amended by the Public Finance Management Amendment Act (Act 29 of 1999), hereinafter referred to as the PFMA,
  • Treasury Regulations (GG 27338) as amended from time to time,
  • The Water Services Act (Act 108 of 1997), as amended, and
  • The King IV Report on Corporate Governance for South Africa, 2016 (King IV).

Non-executive board members receive remunerative benefits and fees as determined by the Minister on an annual basis and in line with their terms of appointment. Therefore, no Board member is involved in determining his / her own remuneration. Board Members’ remuneration is fully disclosed in uMngeni-uThukela Water’s Annual Report.
