SASSA has been a victim of its own employees who swindled millions from the agency. On Friday, it is reported that four of the former employees who swindled the agency of more than R5.9-million made an appearance in court for their alleged crimes.
The appearance at the Port Elizabeth Specialised Commercial Crime was made by the suspects in the name of Mzwamadoda Ngoqo, Vunyiwe Toto, Philani Kwatsha, and Mzivukile Galela where they were being accused of defrauding the agency. They allegedly used their duties of capturing and approving SASSA payments to their advantage and helped themselves with the state funds. When the crimes were reportedly committed, the suspects were still employed by the agency.
SASSA has been a victim to these suspects since 2019 where huge amounts of money got reportedly transferred to their personal accounts. The fraudulent activities are reported to have been discovered by the SASSA offices which in turn decided to initiate the investigations .
