COVID Grant Extension Is A Lifeline For Asylum Seekers

In June, GroundUp wrote an article about immigrant tradesmen who were struggling to find work during lockdown. Many asylum seekers and citizens of Lesotho, Angola and Zimbabwe with special permits have lost their income and have only been able to apply for COVID-19 relief grants since August.

SASSA Grant Extended

SASSA has decided to extend some of their temporary social grants beyond October, however the R350 grant payment is still under review. Minister Zulu has said that discussions about converting the temporary R350 to a Basic Income Grant that would be permanently available were far advanced, and there is general support for it.

Many people may think that R350 is not a lot of money, however if one sees the queues outside Pretoria’s central post office it is obvious that it means a lot to those in need.

Many SASSA beneficiaries within and around Tsakani, were unfortunately victims to this tragic SASSA scam. A woman claiming to be from SASSA, took advantage of vulnerable beneficiaries and cashed their social grants before they were able to.


SASSA is introducing payment method changes to the Covid-19 SRD Grant. This will make it easier for beneficiaries to receive their payments. Many complaints have come with the R350 grant SASSA offers and this is then seen as an effort to minimise difficulties with payments.
