…By Roland Peterson for TDPel Media.

The Gauteng North DA Women’s Network (DAWN) has expressed deep concern regarding the increasing number of social grant beneficiaries who have not received their payments since 2022.


The network emphasizes the need for effective leadership, political will, and compassion in the grant payment system, particularly for the most vulnerable individuals in society who heavily rely on taxpayer-funded support.

Incompetence and Callousness in Grant Payments:

Cllr Sandy K Mbuvha, Chairperson of the DA Women’s Network Gauteng North, highlighted the shocking incompetence and callousness demonstrated by the department responsible for grant payments.

She pointed out that beneficiaries not only face the constant worry of late payments, but they also often endure inhumane and inhospitable conditions when seeking assistance at SASSA offices.

Blaming ANC and EFF for SASSA Failures:

Mbhuvha criticized the ANC-EFF doomsday pact for exacerbating the recurring problems within the grant payment system.

She argued that these failures cripple the social support structures relied upon by the nation’s children and elderly, trapping South Africans in poverty instead of empowering them.

Additionally, Mbuvha emphasized the failure of SASSA to communicate clearly and treat the people of the country with honesty and respect.

To address this crisis, the Gauteng North DAWN has launched a comprehensive campaign aimed at assisting legitimate beneficiaries.

The network will escalate these issues to the Shadow Minister to ensure government accountability.

Demand for Action and Accountability:

Mbhuvha called upon the Minister of Social Development to demonstrate compassion and commitment to the well-being of South Africans.
