Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) has been frustrated at the delays in finalising a deal for South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) taking over the payment of social grants.
Last week, Scopa Chairperson Themba Godi said he would push for a debate in Parliament of Minister Bathabile Dlamini being unfit to hold office, is meetings between Scopa and the Ministry for Social Development did not result in a way forward in the social grants crisis.
African National Congress (ANC) member of parliament and Scopa, Nyami Booi tells 702 Afternoon Drive host, Bongani Bingwa that after National Treasury's and Jeff Radebe, Minister in the Presidency attempt to mediate and in the Sassa matter, they began seeing some progress.
