  • Did Sassa CEO jump or was he pushed?

Godi said the former CEO was expecting to be fired because he did not receive the necessary support from Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini.

The Social Development Department has refused to answer any questions on the sudden departure of acting Sassa CEO Thokozani Magwaza.

"Of particular concern is whether Sassa will lawfully procure services timeously to ensure the proper functioning and integrity of the agency's national payment system, in accordance with its first report to the Constitutional Court, with the view that Sassa takes over its full mandate", said Black Sash's national director Lynnette Maart.

Labour federation Cosatu said Dlamini had become a liability to the department and strongly condemned the intimidation tactics and death threats that had been directed against Magwaza. However, Magwaza opposed the department's statement, telling Moneyweb that he didn't resign but that his contract was "terminated".

Magwaza also recently cancelled "work streams" set up by the minister to find the best solution for the payment of grants after Treasury indicated that the R47-million spent on them was irregular.

The breakdown was laid bare when Dlamini blamed Magwaza for the social grant crisis. The shocking move comes as Magwaza was putting finishing touches on a contract with the South African Post Office to replace CPS in March 2018 as the distributor of social grants to 17-million South Africans and worth a whopping R10-billion a month. He added that Dlamini knew as early as July 2015 about the inability of Sassa to take over social grant payments as she was in control of all internal processes. "She has worked to undermine Sassa", he said.

The spokesperson for the Social Development Department Lumka Oliphant says she won't be answering any questions on Magwaza's departure. This was due to their disagreement about SASSA's legal obligations to the Constitutional Court. He had to resign because of the impossible situation he was in as long as she was minister. According to reports, the pair disagreed on the Sapo and commercial banks taking over the payment of grants.

Godi also said he was concerned about the negotiations with the Post Office, and Scopa was considering summoning officials from Sassa to parliament in August when the national legislature reconvenes to give an update on the progress relating to finding a replacement for CPS.
