  27. Muluvhu Israel

    I applied for R350 grant and It was not on my freedom to choose the bank of my choice but I was directed to the post office so I can receive my grant and it takes the whole day sitting outside the post office due to overcrowding. In our rural areas one post office with two workers on duty is giving service to many villages from 10 villages. No toilet around, hunger while waiting, slow service by the post office because the duty of the post office is not grant only, no water. I also make a call that SASSA must implement their own ATM’s all over
