Civil rights group Black Sash has been in court to challenge a ruling that leaves grant beneficiaries vulnerable to exploitation.
The Black Sash is in the Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein to appeal a high court ruling made in 2017.
The court had ruled in favour of allowing deductions from social grants to service debt.
The Black Sash's Lynette Maart says there is an urgent need to protect grant beneficiaries from exploitation.
She explains the legislation aimed at limiting deductions from social grants and the ongoing court battle.
Maart has also encouraged grant beneficiaries to formally lodge their complaints with Sassa and Black Sash.
