The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has been providing basic needs for the majority of South African for almost 3 decades now, there is no doubt that the majority of people in South Africa would not be where they are today.
Many families depend on it for survival. A 28 years old mother of 3 Mpho Mokwena says it[Social Grant] has been a great help for her and her family.
“I don’t know, where I would be if it wasn’t SASSA, I buy food and use it to pay my debts since I don’t have any source of income,” said Mpho Mokwena.
“I’m a single mother and I don’t have any qualifications which can play a role in getting any job”.
Social grant has played an important role in her life since it helps her on raising her children.
A 25 years old Bethuel Malatji who works at Audi in Gauteng, seems like he doesn’t agree with Mpho. He told this website that most of the most of women use social Grant to gamble.
” I see many women gambling with this money and it is pity in taxpayers because they work very hard for it,” said Malatji.
He went on to say that he sees many children suffering even though their mother received the social grant.
