Sassa and CPS go head to head on who is to blame for grant payments delay
Sassa has filed a report to the Constitutional Court arguing that there was an orchestrated attempt to delay the migration of grant recipients into Postbank by CPS.
NET1 CEO Herman Kotze says it surprising that they are being blamed for the payment glitches.
Paypoints are sensitive and high-risk targets and we are responsible for the security of beneficiaries and our staff. We also have the risk of cash on us.Herman Kotze, NET1 CEO
Kotze says they were not told grant recipients will be migrating to the new Sapo cards.
The enrollment programme started without any consultations with us and as a result, we reacted in a standard operating way.Herman Kotze, NET1 CEO
However, Sassa spokesperson Kgomotso Diseko disputed the claims made by Kotze.
The issue of CPS chasing away clients happened long before the 1st of July.Kgomotso Diseko, Sassa spokesperson
For him to say that we did not notify them that we are coming or sending post office officials to pay points is totally untrue also.Kgomotso Diseko, Sassa spokesperson
