Government to take legal action against some CPS employees
The inter-ministerial committee looking into the social grants crisis has reported back on the progress made on payments.
Last week, technical glitches left over 700,000 social grant recipients unable to get their money.
Government is accusing CashPay Master Services of trying to sabotage efforts to migrate millions of social grants beneficiaries to the new payment system.
The Concourt has given Sassa until the end of September to end its contract with Cash Pay Master Services.
Speaking to Clement Manyathela on The Midday Report, EWN reporter Gaye Davis says government cliams it has evidence and is, in fact, taking legal action against some CPS employees.

Now CPS was responsible for paying 2.5 million beneficiaries cash from various pay points. And apparently CPS has boosted the number of people it has at those pay points and it is trying to get people to remain with them and not sign up for the new system.Gaye Davis, EWN reporter
