When President of South Africa Honorable Cyril Ramaphosa re-introduced the R350 Sassa Social Relief Distress, many disadvantaged South Africans were hopeful and joyful that the grant will soften the blow Covid-19 has struck us with. But two months into the grant being paid, South Africans are still complaining.

The grant which will last until March 2022 has had its fair share of problems especially when it came to the dates of recipients getting their grants, they are more than two million South Africans who were approved for August grants but are yet to get it.
Minister Of Social Development Lindiwe Zulu who is responsible for the grant along with the South African Social Security Agency(SASSA) have tried to explain why that may be the case, with the majority of the recipients who haven't received their grants said to have selected the Cash send method as a way to receive their payments.
Because Sassa sent them an SMS asking them to update their payment method, as that of cash is not available.

The grant still has more questions than answers when it comes to many instances, like the reasons for declining qualifying personals, other people receiving grants while others don't when they both use the same method of receiving the grants, and how long does it take to pay the deserving recipients.

They are still people who are waiting for their August and September grants while their statuses of October are pending, something that has left many in awe and wondering when they will get their grants.
Despite President Cyril Ramaphosa and Minister of Social Development Lindiwe Zulu promising that as long you are approved, you will get your grant South Africans are losing faith in them.
