NGOs Black Sash and Freedom Under Law say the Constitutional Court's ruling on former social development minister Bathabile Dlamini is a victory.
Black Sash has welcomed Cabinet's intervention in delivering a preliminary agreement between the South African Post Office and Sassa, but says the report back on the arrangement still lacks crucial details.
The Black Sash Trust has asked the Supreme Court of Appeal for leave to appeal a high court ruling allowing Net1 to continue making deductions from Sassa on the government’s behalf.
Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini will find out this week whether she will be held personally liable for legal costs for the social grants matter heard at the Constitutional Court.
A ruling made the High Court allowing social grant payment provider Net1 to continue deducting money from the bank accounts of grant beneficiaries was devastating, Black Sash’s lawyers have said.
Black Sash says it is elated that the Constitutional Court granted all its requests in its Constitutional Court case against Sassa.
CPS says it wants more for the Sassa contract but is unable to reveal how much it has been making in the previous contract. Judgment is reserved in the matter.
Sassa CEO Thokozani Magwaza has confirmed that President Jacob Zuma has instituted a ministerial task team that will ensure that millions of South Africans receive their social grants.
Freedom Under Law wants to intervene in Black Sash’s Constitutional Court application to ensure that grant beneficiaries will still be protected after March 31.
The Constitutional Court application by civil organisation Black Sash, to ensure grant beneficiaries will be protected come April 1, will be heard on March 15.
NGO Black Sash has pleaded with the inter-ministerial committee responsible for handling the social grants crisis to release more details about banking requirements under the new scheme.
The accounts of social grant beneficiaries who have EasyPay Everywhere (“green” card) accounts will remain active after the contract between Sassa and CPS comes to an end in March 2018.
Threats against senior government officials have become a worrying trend, the Black Sash organisation has said, following the resignation of Thokozani Magwaza as CEO of Sassa.
Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini says she is disappointed that the High Court ruled that Net1 can continue to make deductions from people's social grants.
It happened to the silky soul singer Marvin Gaye, and now it is happening to Western Cape Premier Helen Zille.
The Constitutional Court has ruled that the 'invalid' contract of Cash Paymaster Services (CPS) to pay Sassa grants will be extended for a period of 12 months under the same terms and conditions and with strict supervision.
The Constitutional Court will hear an application by Black Sash for the court to exercise oversight over the process to find a new social grants payment provider.
The Black Sash has accused Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini of failing in her constitutional obligations and showing 'no remorse'.
The Black Sash says it will ask the Constitutional Court to oversee the Sassa grant payments system when the court hears its application regarding the proposed extension of Cash Paymaster Services' contract.
Right2Know has added its voice to the growing frustration around Sassa's state of readiness to distribute social grants to 17 million South Africans on April 1.
