MINISTER DLAMINI TO MEET SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT STAKEHOLDERS AT PREMIER HOTEL - KEMPTON PARK Print E-mail
Friday, 17 March 2017

The Minister of Social Development, Ms Bathabile Dlamini, will on Friday, March 17, meet with Social Development stakeholders to brief them on progress regarding the institutionalisation of the social grant payment system within SASSA beyond March 31, 2017.

A resolution was taken by Minister Dlamini and her Provincial counterparts last month that DSD should meet with its stakeholders to allay fears that social grants may not be paid from April 1.

Stakeholders expected to attend the meeting include amongst others; NPOs responsible for children and people with disabilities, traditional leaders and Faith Based Organisations (FBOs).

Minister Dlamini would like to reiterate President Jacob Zuma's assurance that Government is working around the clock to make sure that social grants are paid on April 1.

Members of the media are invited to attend and cover our stakeholder engagement arranged as follows:

Date: Friday, 17 March 2017

Time: 10h00

Venue: Premier Hotel, 73 Gladiator Street, Rhodesfield - Kempton Park

Media can RSVP by contacting Mr Justice Malapane - 079 4977 426 / This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
