Sassa asks ConCourt to intervene against CPS for causing havoc at paypoints
The SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) has asked the Constitutional court to take action against Cash Paymaster Services (CPS) and its affiliates for disrupting, interfering and refusing post office officials to distribute grants at pay points.
According to reports, a CPS employee allegedly pointed a gun at post office employees meant to handle the payment of social grants.
CPS contract with Sassa will come to an end at the end of September and will be taken over by SA Post Office (Sapo).
Sassa spokesperson, Paseka Letsatsi says they have documented proof that the post office staff was prevented from doing card swapping in other areas by CPS members.
We did write a letter to the current payment contractor informing them of the processes that will be taking place. However, even when we wrote a letter we still experienced problems where Sapo and Sassa members have under oath shared the happenings in the Free State and recently in Hammanskraal where people were prevented from doing what they were supposed to be doing.Paseka Letsatsi, Sassa spokesman
But we have a documented proof where post office members were denied entry, in fact, some of them were escorted out of the venues.Paseka Letsatsi, Sassa spokesman
Letsatsi says they have filed papers to the Constitutional Court and are waiting for a pronouncement that will help pave a way forward.
