Sassa R350 Covid-19 Relief grants extended

Sassa spokesman Paseka Lezatsi insists they will do everything possible to ensure that the system works smoothly.

One of the benefits announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa as part of his economic recovery plan is the extension of the R350 Covid-19 special grant.

It should now be available for another three months, after the initial deadline, which was the end of October.

This will cost the state an additional 6 billion rubles.

Sassa spokesman Paseka Lezatsi spoke with John Matham about extending the special subsidy for Covid-19 for three months after the initial October deadline.

Lezatsi says the social development minister must issue directives in this regard by Friday.

Once the directives are published, we as an organization will be ready to succeed.
