Johannesburg - Treasury will not act illegally and approve a new welfare distribution deal with Net1 UEPS Technologies unless it has been sanctioned by the SA’s Constitutional Court, the spokesperson for the ANC said.

While the Constitutional Court in 2014 ruled an existing contract with Net1 invalid because of the way it was awarded and ordered the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) to hold a tender and find a new service provider, it has failed to do so and the contract runs out on March 31.

Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini said this week that a new contract will be negotiated with Net1 and rather than seeking permission from the court, she would merely inform it.
