Minister of Social Development Susan Shabangu says she is going to ensure that by 1 October the CPS contract is officially terminated.
The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has been met with vast challenges during the hand over from CPS to the Post Office in paying social grants.
Speaking to Eusebius McKaiser, Minister Shabangu says they expected resistance from CPS on the handing over to the Post Office.
On the 1st of October, the status of CPS will have no relationship with Sassa because the Constitutional Court said by the end of September we must be done with CPS.— Susan Shabangu, Minister of Social Development
It's not easy, its challenging. Do you think it would have been easy for CPS to walk away and allow us to work without them interfering? We are ready for them, that is why we have put up mechanisms that is why everything they do we report it to the court.— Susan Shabangu, Minister of Social Development
If we all work together without any other person coming up with ulterior motives we are on track.— Susan Shabangu, Minister of Social Development
But we are ready for any action which intends to undermine us.— Susan Shabangu, Minister of Social Development
