The Acting CEO of Sassa, Abraham Mahlangu says while the situation at the social grants agency is bad, he is wary of being alarmist.
Speaking to Bongani Bingwa Mahlangu says everything be done to get the agency.
We are working on strategies to ensure that no beneficiaries will be inconvenienced. they will be entitled to their benefits or their grants as usual. There will be no disruptions of any sort.— Abraham Mahlangu, Sassa Acting CEO
Mahlangu says one of the challenges they are facing is the suspension of the tender process.
I think it was appropriate that it is put on suspension so that remedial actions can be put in place and prevent any possible litigation that can arise.— Abraham Mahlangu, Sassa Acting CEO
Mahlangu says it cannot be true that CPS are the only ones who can administer the grant payments.
