“Our investigations have revealed that over 21 people were recruited and paid R3 500 gratification each resulting in a loss of over R300 000 by the department. The suspects include three Nkowankowa Sassa officials, one intermediary and eight non qualifying Sassa beneficiaries. They are expected to appear in the Tzaneen Magistrate’s Court soon to face charges relating to fraud and corruption,” explains Maluleke.
