Government employees who received relief grants may face prosecution

Social Development Minister, Lindiwe Zulu has told the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) that the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is opening criminal cases against each public servant who irregularly received the R350 social relief distress grants for the COVID-19 pandemic. Zulu was responding to a written parliamentary question on Tuesday - where she has confirmed that SASSA is opening cases in batches against those implicated. President Ramaphosa in September said the revelation that thousands of public servants have been illegally receiving social grants shows that South Africa has a long way to go towards instilling a culture of ethics in the public service. Sassa spokesperson Paseka Letsatsi joins us to talk about this.
