Constitutional court summons will now provide answers to Sassa saga

Freedom Under Law (FUL) says its confident that a summons by the Constitutional Court on Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini will now provide answers over the current Sassa and Cash Paymaster Services (CPS) contract saga.

Dlamini will have to provide details next week, on when she first became aware that Sassa would not be able to pay out grants to over 17 million beneficiaries, says Fritz.

She will also have to give clarity on whether it has sealed a contractual agreement with CPS.

FUL recently asked the Constitutional Court to order the minister to file all documents relating to negotiations and approvals for any last-minute contract signed with Cash Paymaster Services.

We can all feel fairly confident that the court is being charged with this matter….I think the interest of the beneficiaries will weigh foremost with the Constitutional Court.
