Is it a perceived culture of impunity or growing lawlessness that made one dodgy broker think she could get away with skimming SASSA money? The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) sustains over 3,7 million qualifying pensioners โ€“ a critical lifeline for those who need it. Carte Blanche investigates the implications when one woman sets up an illegal SASSA agency, pushing through government old-age grants for a fee. The beneficiaries? Financially stable elderly people who cheat the system to line their pockets with taxpayer resources.
