We the undersigned hereby demand that the ANC led government in particular SASSA to stop being selfish by refusing to give poor and unemployed parents(Mothers and fathers) R 500 grant top-up.

This comes after the government decided that parents with children who benefited from the R500 will not be receiving it.

We reject this arrogant stance by government because we are of a view that it is wrong and a clear indication that the state does not consider the economic context of South African(s).

With the country facing a pandemic that left many people unemployed and others still struggling to get jobs we call on government to consider the condition of parents before giving SOE`s that still use the tender system which has been a policy direction that has allowed people to loot state resources.

 

However, we are not saying the state should privatize these SOE`s nor we supporting the stance of them getting funding while using outsourcing.

 

We thus call on government to stand for the democratic principle "People participation" by listening to the voices of the over 7 million people who depended on the top-up grant.

 

We do note that there are some people who are working but have been benefitting from the grant and we thus demand that government work with SARS to view the people who are employed and can afford to support their children.

Those who are unemployed and poor should be the ones who benefit from the top-up grant.
