Maluleke also stated that there were already investigations against SASSA which are independent from this one. These includes fraud and compliance unit that failed to follow the legislation. 25 of these cases are investigated by Special Investigating Unit (SIU). Sassa CEO Totsie Memela-Khambula when briefing the media about their financial year reports for 2021, she said that they've spent R1.142 billion.
