mavc keimoes 2015 collageBlack Sash partner, Joyce Muller of Siyafunda, hosted a community dialogue at the local church hall in Keimoes (northern Cape) on 17 March 2015 sharing the results of the citizen monitoring of SASSA conducted in 2014. The SASSA Manager was in attendance as was the Public Protector. We expected 50 community members but to our surprise 136 people showed up.

Community members shared their feelings on the results presented and a Joint Monitoring Committee was formed consisting of 3 residents, Siyafunda and SASSA to develop an Action Plan to help improve service delivery.
