Two women have been arrested for allegedly defrauding the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) of about R4 million in KwaZulu-Natal.
Lieutenant-Colonel Vincent Mdunge of the South African Police Service, points out that the suspects would assist people who wanted to receive illegal grants from the agency with applications.
Mdunge says that, “People would apply for grants under false pretences of being ill and the women would allegedly assist them in receiving the grants." He argues that once the application is approved for a grant, the suspects would either split the money with the false applicants or keep the money for themselves.
