AmaBhungane investigative journalist, Craig McKune, says he is in possession of documents and transcripts from interviews he conducted with CPS employees which prove that Net1, the parent company of Cash Paymaster Services (CPS), uses the personal data of social grant beneficiaries to market its subsidiaries' products like funeral cover and electricity.
CEO of Net1 Serge Belamant has denied these accusations for years.
Serge Balamant has denied a lot of things under oath including that Sassa owes Net1 R316 million.— Craig McKune, amaBhungane investigative journalist
Mckune says the relationship between Sassa and CPS is a complicated one. Sassa followed many incorrect procedures in awarding the tender to CPS.
The Constitutional Court found the contract invalid.
He says there are clear links between CPS's BEE partners being friends with Minister Dlamini.
They got a lot of money and he bought himself that big house in Bishops Court.— Craig McKune, amaBhungane investigative journalist
