GAUTENG – The Minister of Social Development Lindiwe Zulu is working with the SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) and plans to find jobs for the recipients of the R350 Social Relief Distress grant.
She responded to a written parliamentary question from the Economic Freedom Fighters, asking what measures are being taken to help those excluded from the subsidies. According to the EFF, at least 500,000 people do not receive subsidies due to budgetary constraints.
Zulu said Sassa is working on a relationship with the Public Works and Infrastructure and Employment and Labor Departments to help R350 recipients find work. The department has also linked beneficiaries to initiatives that help those in need develop their skills.
The skills development projects will help people generate income and create jobs. Young people, women and vulnerable people will benefit from the program.
According to TimesLIVE, the African National Congress also plans to grant a basic income. However, the decision to implement the initiative rests with Finance Minister Enoch Godongwana.
