Provincial Leader Democratic Alliance North-West
It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of a pensioner while queuing to re-register for her old-age grant in Choseng Village today.
The lack of qualifies social workers in the province has left our pensioners no choice, but to brave the long queues to re-register for their grants. This causing unnecessary stress on them and the SASSA service points.
I urge Social development MEC Mosetsanagape Mokomele-Mothibi to urgently fill the vacancies that exist in her department. We will continue to provide oversight to ensure dignity for the communities on the North-West.
