Social grant payments for April delayed due to technical glitches
The Ministry of Poverty Eradication and Social Welfare announced in an official statement that there will be a delay of a few days in the normal payment of social grants such as old age pension and disability grants.
“The ministry would like to extend its apologies for the delay that will be experienced in the month of April with regard to the payment of social grants,” the statement read.
