Lindiwe Daphney Zulu is South Africa's Minister of Social Development. She was the special advisor to the President on international relations. She previously served as the head of communication for the PAN African women's organization in Angola in 1988. Lindiwe Zulu has finally brought smiles to the faces of South African citizens following her promise to all the SASSA beneficiaries. The Minister
of Social Development, Lindiwe Zulu, says she will make sure that SASSA beneficiaries get their R350 SASSA relief grants before June. South African citizens have been waiting for over two months to receive their SASSA grant for April and May.
Lindiwe Zulu's speech has finally brought hope to the millions of South African citizens who depend on the SASSA grant. Here is what SASSA beneficiaries said regarding Lindiwe Zulu's promise.
"Minister Lindiwe Zulu's assurances are meaningless." "( What happened to the money of those who were approved last year and for months they never got a cent of it? I've been sending emails about this. There is no need for them to keep our hopes high. It's better to be told the truth that the SASSA grant is no more because we have been waiting for a long period and we are getting nothing.
I don't know how long we are going to wait to see Lindiwe Zulu messing up the R350 social relief funds right under our nose and you not saying anything. We must now feed more than 15 families in our rations because some ministers decided to put funds on hold until they finally remove other beneficiaries who also depend on the SASSA relief grant.
According to the above comments, one can conclude that most of the South African citizens depend on the SASSA relief grant, and now that SASSA is not paying the grants, some of the citizens are panicking because SASSA is their only option to survive.
Do you think that Lindiwe Zulu and SASSA will honor their promise and pay the grants before June? Please leave your views in the comment section below.
