Johannesburg - The South African Social Services Agency (Sassa) has scrapped the advisory groups that were set up to plan for the future of the country’s more than $10bn of annual welfare payments.

Letters were sent to the so-called “work streams” last week informing them of their termination, Sassa chief executive officer Thokozani Magwaza said in an interview at Bloomberg’s Johannesburg office on Monday.
