Eastern Cape woman accuses SASSA of negligence

SABC News SASSA - Eastern Cape woman accuses SASSA of negligence

A 43-year-old woman from Ugie in the Eastern Cape has accused the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) of negligence. This after, she unsuccessfully tried for more than a year to register her three children in order to receive child support grants.
Weziwe Linisa last received SASSA grants in 2013 as a result of a faulty Identity Document and she says, since then, putting food on the table has been a daily struggle.
She says she has been sent from pillar to post after applying for a new identity document so that she can apply for child support. Her new ID document arrived over two years ago and she re-applied in June 2019 for child support grants.

Linisa says she has been trying for more than a year to get the problem corrected.

“Sometimes I go around looking for work and I can’t find any. I’m forced to go to the neighbours to ask for food. I send my children to school everyday so that they can access school nutrition even though they are supposed to take turns going to school.”

Project launched for online grant applications (part 2):
