“All social grants received by Sassa employees, except for the foster child grant and the combination grants (a combination of foster child grants and care dependency grants which are not means tested) have been suspended with immediate effect in accordance with Regulation 29(1)(a) of the Social Assistance Act, which allows for suspension without prior notice, in cases of suspected fraud or misrepresentation,” said Zulu.

“Processes are now under way to determine the amount paid which should not have been paid, as well as the date from which these employees started being employed by Sassa, to determine the amount to be recovered.

200 000 public servants and also these foreigners who cross the border every month to milk the grant system.. The ANC govt has mismanaged every aspect of govt institutions ANC steal in every possible way. What level of greed is this ? This is actually disgusting R350 x 200 000 = R70mil The President must establish a commission of inquiry into this matter. It's not the matter to be taken lightly because of its potential detrimental impact on the poorest who need the grants seriously. We subsequently need very sophisticated systems to monitor the corruption.

Make them pay back every single bloody cent. Sick of this nonsense 🚮 Tired of being woodwinked and lied to by this government. Change must happen now. Aii this ANC government must resign once Surprise surprise My goodness! 😳😳😳

Cruel Corruption corruption corruption is killing the South Africans making COVID19 a walk in the park magicdan60 When you control the system it's just too easy The temptation just too much People wonder why the ANC keeps on getting votes. Here's your answer, we are a corrupt country. Miss 12% is just in over her head... Her own employees know she is stupid and can't do anything... That is why they have taken a chance to help themselves to the social grants... She is probably collecting the social grants herself and don't even know it. The height of Stupidity

Mhh soft Life. Must be nice. I know someone who benefitted from a similar scheme. What was sad to see is how he spent the money on alchohol at shebeens with 'speed points', meanwhile, didnt even own a fridge... And they can't be punished? fowardbow The ttl is probaby double once the audit is complete. fowardbow I doubt these people just took a chance in applying to see what happens.There is a crime syndicate within Saasa and they need to investigate the persons who approved these grants

miraaikie Every single government official who is receiving a social grant should be fired. They are taking food out of the mouths of the destitute! Well that doesn't sound very legal Just 200k I'm sure it's dubble that !!! Why not say 'ANC officials'. Time to call a spade a spade. It is so bloody simple: ID nr vs UIF details and voila! You must be really stupid to not be anle to do this simple cross reference. We are in deep 💩 if our government can’t even get this simple data sorted. Curruption is top qualification of officials.

Nothing wrong with government officials stealing from government. Its the ANC culture. Its the ANC government. ANC benefits. No system in place to prevent corruption Ayicha senehlule shame PelisaS Sassa has no intention of fixing this anti poor system. My unemployed brother has been rejected despite having no income for the past 3 years, I’m sure there’s plenty qualifying ppl who’ve been rejected & yet gov officials were paid.

If CyrilRamaphosa GovernmentZA are serious about corruption all of this double dipping should be dismissed with immediate effect. We can't continue to live with thieves whereas there's young people starving and unemployed meanwhile thugs masquerading as people servants looting All government officials are corrupt including cyril ramaposa and Pravin

This country is becoming a joke Is there no end to the grifting greed of the ruling party's members & employees? I guess that's a rhetorical question. Absolutely sickening 😡😡😡 And what does it say about the process? My mom had to go back 4-5 times over a period of months before she got her grant.

These government officials and Iqbal Surve are on the Whatsapp group. Both are allegedly stealing from the public purse 👛 Just bcz has colour in it.okay sharp bantubophela I'm not surprised. But nothing said about criminal charges, or is it no longer a crime when you work in government How can this be possible? What it means simply is that 200 000 civil servants are corrupt. The question is simple. Why are they still in the government’s employ?

Isn't it normal with the anc? Trillions of taxpayers rands have gone missing over time WITHOUT ANY CONSEQUENCES TO THE ANC COMRADES THIEVES Untouchables Above the law
