“I heard the government extended the grant for three months, but I am still waiting for my first payment to be approved” Residents of Orlando in Soweto, Johannesburg say they joined the line outside this post office as early as 4am in the hope of getting their R350 Covid-19 relief grants this week.

President Ramaphosa announced that SASSA is going to extend their Special Relief Distress grant of R350 for another three months. However, despite the grant being extended, the agency won't be taking new applications.

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.

Many calls are being made to Government to have the R350 grant offered by SASSA and the Department of Social Development to be extended. A fake message circulated speaking on the extension and SASSA has now set the record straight.

Economists warn that South Africa will not be able to afford to keep the R350 Covid-19 SRD grant permanently or the country will face an economic crisis.
