Social grants may not be paid

It's D-day for Minister of Social Services, Ms Bathabile Dlamini

Minister of Social Development, Ms Bathabile Dlamini and South Africa Social Security Agency (Sassa) will present their cases in the social grant payment debacle today.

The court will hear arguments about why Sassa wants a new interim contract with CPS and why it didn’t inform the court last year that it couldn’t take over social grant payments from the company. CPS says if a deal is not in place by Wednesday it won’t be able to pay social grants on  April 1 because it needs time to access funds.
