[LISTEN] Sassa's Post Office deal in the balance
CEO of the South African Post Office Mark Barnes says the Social Development Department is not really offering the Post Office the job of paying out grants.
JOHANNESBURG - CEO of the South African Post Office Mark Barnes says the only things offered by the Social Development Department to the post office is an integrated grant system that would be run by a Seta.
He says the Post Office’s core strength is Post Bank and a developed banking system that would help ease the distribution of grants.
Barnes adds things will begin to unfold next week as they have meetings with the department, which he hopes will give the Post Pffice and South Africans clarity on what exactly the Social Development Department wants.
