Sassa withdraws Constitutional Court case on social grant payments
The South African Social Security Agency, which was seeking to extend CPS's contract to pay social grants, says it will lodge the case again
The South Africa Social Security Agency (Sassa) has withdrawn its Constitutional Court application asking it to extend a social grants distribution contract it invalidated in 2014. "The reason at the moment is the fact that there were ... inputs not included," Sassa spokesman Kgomotso Diseko said. "It's going to be relodged again." However, Diseko could not say when this would happen. Sassa had lodged an urgent application on Tuesday asking the court to allow it to enter into another year long contract with Cash Paymaster Services (CPS).
