Black Sash Media Release: Resignation of Serge Belamant

25 May 2017

The Black Sash is pleased that the Net 1 shareholders are finally holding the CEO of Net 1 to account.

Serge Belamant's retirement by the end of May 2017 is a clear signal of their intention to clean up unethical business practises. It indicates a move to defend the human right to social security by ensuring that grants are paid in full without deductions.  

The Hands Off our Grants campaign will continue to call for a protected ring fenced 'SASSA bank account' and an end to the migration of social grant funds from the SASSA branded bank account to the EasyPay Everywhere (EPE) bank account
