The South African Social Services Agency (Sassa) has been granted a request to continue with the services of Cash Paymaster Services (CPS) for six months.
The Constitutional Court made the judgement on Friday following an urgent application for the extension earlier this year.
This is the second suspension Sassa has been granted since the highest court in the land ruled that the contract with CPS was invalid.
Eyewitness News reporter Hitekani Magwedze has more on the story.
CPS had requested that the rate they are given during the six months needs to be made higher because the service that they say is expensive to provide to Sassa is going to take away a lot of their finances.
They say that they wouldn't be able to run it beyond May.
The ConCourt has requested Treasury to investigate this request by CPS, to see whether they can indeed give more money to CPS.— Hitekani Magwedze, EWN reporter
