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 Provincial Parliament.

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.
