SA Urged to Find Alternatives to Social Grants

South Africa must find alternatives to its social grant system, urges SAIRR

The South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR) says that South Africa must find alternatives to its social grant system.

The call comes at a time when the Department of Social Development is celebrating the issuing of millions of South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) social-grant debit cards, which it says will help to curb social fraud.

SAIRR deputy chief executive officer, Frans Cronje, says that about five million South Africans pay income tax, and the organisation estimates that 10 percent of these taxpayers account for more than 50 percent of total tax revenue.
