My Neighbour Is Buying Alcohol With Child Support Grant- Lady Sends A Message To SASSA

My Neighbour Is Buying Alcohol With Child Support Grant- Lady Sends A Message To SASSA

The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has been helping a lot of people with the cash transfers they make to people who need help financially. Children with parents who do not have jobs that earn them enough money have also benefited but is seems some gaurdians are using the money for wrong things. 

One lady by the name of Waitsi Ramose replied to one of the post SASSA had tweeted on Twitter and reported that her neighbour was buying alcohol with the money from SASSA for Child Support Grant. The lady said they had reported to the social workers but they didn't help and SASSA cannot help if they didn't get a report from social workers. " Sassa please check your inbox. My neighbour is buying alcohol with child support grant. We reported the matter but north West social workers did not do anything. Sassa said they can't stop grant without the report from social workers". 

People that saw the tweet asked why the lady was reporting as it is not of her business. However, this issue might have been very serious for this lady to even take it to the social workers and SASSA and is probably trying to protect the children that have to benefit from the grant. 

Whether this is the lady's business or not, she is doing the best thing to report the misuse of funds as the children need the grant. However, stopping the grant would not be a good idea as the children may continue suffering.
