Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini has been requested to account for the controversy surrounding the payout of social grants.
Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng says they would like to know why the Constitutional Court was kept in the dark about Sassa's inability to pay social grants and who made that decision.
Elroy Paulus, Black Sash national advocacy manager, says the money that is used by Sassa comes from taxpayers. Sassa is a 100% government owned and therefore the public deserves answers.
He says they are very pleased that the Constitutional Court has issued an instruction for Sassa to answer the questions that everyone would like answers to.
The ConCourt has given Sassa five days to explain itself.
