Social Grant Beneficiaries Bear Brunt of Post Office Strike

A strike by workers at the South African Post Office and Telkom have left grant beneficiaries stranded. This comes after assurances from the South African Social Security Agency that the grants payment system has stabilised following a series of "glitches" that resulted in many beneficiaries returning home empty-handed.



A group of mostly pensioners waited for hours outside the post office in Langalibalele Street, Pietermaritzburg where the doors remained closed as workers are on strike.
