According to the Parliamentary Monitoring Group, several grant hopefuls appealed to the Independent Tribunal for Social Assistance for declined Sassa SRD grants; The tribunal received just over 3 million appeals.
In a related story, Briefly News reported that two pensioners were arrested in separate cases of theft, fraud and perjury for collecting South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) grants while companies in their name racked in millions from tenders.
South Africans believe the two women are just the tip of the iceberg and that someone else is pulling the strings. Some have even speculated that pensioners aren't the real owner of the registered companies.
One of the pensioners, Salmina Khoza, was listed as the sole director of three companies and bagged tenders from the police service worth over R60 million, TimesLIVE reported.
