CAPE TOWN - The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) is addressing complaints of fraudulent deductions at a gathering of grant beneficiaries in Kraaifontein.

Sassa representatives have been joined by community group Black Sash.

More than 200 grant beneficiaries have arrived at the Scottsdene Sport and Recreation Centre to air their concerns over irregular deductions.

Last night Sassa was in Mitchells Plain.

The agency's Waldie Terblanche says they've had more than 2,000 reported deductions since the start of February.

Terblanche says they'll be moving to other communities as well.
