To make matters worse, grant recipients also complained earlier this year over the sudden closure of a building in the area.
It was a branch that had to be closed down due to renovations that needed to take place.
Now it seems that a new building in Kuyasa could be just what’s needed for the agency to function properly.
Sassa grant recipients have often endured standing in long queues in Khayelitsha.
But this could soon change, according to Minister Lindiwe Zulu.
"I’m happy to indicate that Sassa, the province and the Department of Social Development are really looking forward to permanent offices where people can go to," the minister said.
The Khayelitsha Development Forum chairperson Ndithini Tyhido has encouraged the minister to do regular visits to reassure the community’s needs are prioritised.
"Revisit Khayelitsha after this thing just to look at most of the things that were discussed that relate to Sassa really acquiring or procuring its own offices in Khayelitsha so that it can serve this community better," Tyhido said.
The move to the new building in Kuyasa is expected to happen in the next few weeks.
