STRATEGIC PLAN

It gives me great pleasure to present, on behalf of the Board, the Strategic Plan (SP) of the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board for the period 2020/21-2024/25. This Board’s SP is rooted in the principles and targets of the development trajectory as set out in South Africa’s National Development Plan.

The SP of the Board is informed by the Provincial Strategic Plan (PSP) 2019 - 2024. The PSP sets out the Western Cape Government’s (WCG) vision and strategic priorities. Its content is defined by the WCG’s approach to addressing the economic, social, and development challenges in the Province.

Mr D Lakay
Chairperson of the Board

ANNUAL REPORTS

It gives me great pleasure to present the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board’s Annual Report for the 2019/20 financial year.

The Board’s activities included having processed 8 736 licence applications, conducting 1 138 assessments at licence holder premises, deliberated on 11 disputes and directly assisted punters with 4 self-exclusions. Generally, punters approach licence holders directly for self-exclusions.

Mr D Lakay
Chairperson of the Board

ANNUAL PERFORMANCE PLAN

The Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board (WCGRB) is responsible for providing a stable, just, consistent and effective regulatory environment for gambling in the province. Furthermore, it must inspire public confidence and trust that gambling in the province is conducted honestly and is free from corruptive elements.

Finally, it also ensures that gambling contributes towards the economy of the Western Cape. This is done in two ways – firstly with the industry itself creating opportunities for employment and contributing to the tourism sector, and secondly through the collection of taxes and levies that contribute to government revenue. The latter is used for the purposes of service delivery in education, health and infrastructure, for example, in the Western Cape.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

The King IV Report on Corporate Governance contains the King IV Code which sets out recommended practices and principles. Corporate governance, for the purposes of King IV, is defined as the exercise of ethical and effective leadership by the governing body towards the achievement of the following governance outcomes: ethical culture, good performance, effective control and legitimacy.

Through application of the “apply and explain” approach to reporting, this report is aimed at assisting stakeholders in assessing the Board’s approach to corporate governance and application of the King IV practices and principles.

This report is for the period 1 April 2019 – 31 March 2020 and should be read together with the Board’s 2019/20 Annual Report as published on the Board’s website.
