The Western Cape Department of
Social Development has welcomed the open engagement and positive-criticism of
the South African Social Security Agency, by Members of the Western Cape
This comes after SASSA
appeared before the WCPP Standing Committee on Community Development yesterday.
SASSA came in for sharp criticism for the continuing
instances of illegal grant deductions.
Social Development MEC, Albert Fritz, says “In the past, ,my department has been vocal
calling on SASSA to improve its systems, and clean up its administration”.
This has been in response to the numerous
complaints the provincial department receives about SASSA related to illegal
deductions from old age pensions, corruption and grant fraud.
