South Africa's Social Grant Strike Rolls On

The social development department has agreed to suspend the biometric enrolment of South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) beneficiaries after a meeting with the National Education, Health and Allied Workers' Union. Thousands of Sassa employees embarked on a strike on Wednesday over several complaints - the main one being the biometric system. The strike has not yet been called off because the union has to present the agreement to its members.
