Sassa helping Denzil Daniels register for social grant

General Manager of Grants Administration at South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) Henry de Grass says it is helping the Delft man who was returned home to his family after being found in Eswatini after 6 years.

Since the story broke Sassa has been in touch with the family but we couldn't do anything until the son had returned to the country. Now that he is back we were in touch with the family again.

It is our understanding that he hasn't got his ID yet.
