Judge Nugent rules in Sassa’s favour in R1.3bn CPS claim
Cash Paymaster Service has a history of litigation with the SA Social Security Agency — this time it lost on all the claims and was ordered to pay costs
Cash Paymaster Services (CPS), which used to administer social grants to more than 17-million people, has lost its R1.3bn lawsuit against the SA Social Security Agency (Sassa).
On Wednesday, Sassa said Judge Robert Nugent, who was appointed the arbitrator in the matter, ruled in favour of the agency in all the claims lodged by CPS. Sassa said it welcomed Nugent’s “well thought out awards” in the matter.
