ConCourt orders Sassa and its former CEO to pay legal costs

Thursday's ruling dealt with an urgent application to extend the agency's contract with Cash Paymaster Services (CPS).

The Constitutional Court has ordered Sassa and former acting CEO Pearl Bhengu to foot the bill of an urgent application to extend the agency's contract with Cash Paymaster Services (CPS).

In March, the court extended the invalid contract with CPS for six months after Sassa at that time argued that the South African Post Office (Sapo) did not have the capacity to fully administer the payment of social grants to millions of beneficiaries.

Although the judgment found that former social development minister, Bathabile Dlamini should not be held liable for the payment, it found that she did not apply an effective supervisory role.

Eyewitness News reporter Thando Kubheka has more on the story.

The court demonstrated in its judgment that it has become really impatient with Sassa. It found that Sassa and its CEO, who was then Pearl Bhengu, acted in bad faith as they were responsible for the process for the movement from CPS to the South African Post Office.

The court has accused Sassa of forcing its hand to extend the application.
