Sassa recently announced that around 32 000 people have wrongly benefited from the R350 SRD grants. These were government employees that were caught due to their employment information being in the system.
SASSA executive for Grants Administration, Dianne Dunkerley said “one of the challenges in government is the need to have a single comprehensive view of citizens that really starts speaking to all government departments sharing their data. We have a complete data source with every single citizen in this country… that will really help to roll out programmes like the R350 grants a lot more efficiently,”
