On the road, vendors were hustling according to the theme of the day, offering roses to one driver as the perfect gift for the “queen” in the passenger seat, or as a peace offering for a squabbling couple in another car.
It had been a good four years since I’d had my own Valentine.
One of the key goals of the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) is to manage and pay social grants without the use of a third party contractor as is currently the case.
SASSA is on course to achieving this goal of ensuring that payment of social grants is insourced.
The form attached to the letters must be completed and returned to the nearest SASSA office.Beneficiaries of social grants are advised to ignore agents who claim that the current SASSA card has expire and is being replaced by another card.There is only one SASSA card, and it is the one which has the government coat of arms on.The rest of the remaining 8.4 million beneficiaries will be paid through the various outlets using ATM’s, Point of Sale devices and in cash at SASSA paypoints.As compared to the month of February, a growth of about 140 000 has been realised in terms of beneficiaries choosing to use the commercial bank payment channel.
