Keeping the R350 Grant for the unemployed was an agreement among South Africa's cabinet and President Cyril Ramaphosa.
There was consensus that this was the best course of action for the government of South Africa to adopt in order to aid the jobless.
Since the R350 Grant is a powerful weapon in the war against poverty, it will continue to be funded.
A large number of South Africans who have reapplied for the R350 Grant and been told they will finally receive their money are yet to receive their April payments.
The slow distribution of the R350 Grant is exacerbated by the fact that millions of South Africans still do not have their own bank accounts.
The R350 Grant, as promised by the president, will be distributed the week of February 15th, at the latest.
Millions of people have been waiting for the post office to lift their ban on paying beneficiaries of the R350 Grant extension, but the barrier has finally been removed, and the grants can be distributed as planned.
Beneficiaries will be facing a brand new process, and it's unfortunate that they'll have to adjust to other forms of payment.
Some recipients of the R350 Grant are worried that they won't get their money because the agency's new guidelines require that it be given only to those who qualify.
Changes have been made to the process to ensure a smooth transition for recipients of the R350 Grant as a result of new legislation.
An active bank account is required to receive the R350 Grant on time, according to the social development organization.
In order to keep citizens apprised of infrastructural improvements, the government agency in charge of social uplift will issue periodic reports.
