Millions of Sassa cards need to be replaced

VAAL TRIANGLE - Government is in talks with stakeholders to replace South African Social Security Agency cards after a security breach, which was first reported last year. Although Sassa doesn’t manage the cards, Social Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu says it’s one of the agency’s priorities to intervene in cases of fraud or corruption. The acting CEO of Postbank, Hannes van der Merwe, told eNCA the problem is serious as 8.7-million cards need to be replaced. He stresses that grant recipients have not lost money as a result of the breach.
