SASSA INQUIRY EXPECTED TO HEAR CLOSING ARGUMENTS TODAY
"The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa)inquiry is expected to hear closing arguments today on former Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini's role in the grants crisis. Advocacy group the Black Sash Trust approached the Constitutional Court in March last year after Sassa acknowledged it would not be able to pay millions of grants. The group wants Dlamini to be held personally liable for the debacle. The inquiry which is headed by retired judge Bernard Ngoepe has heard testimony from former Sassa top officials Zane Dangor and Thokozani Magwaza who have both made damning allegations against Dlamini."
