Seven women and a man, aged between 32 and 63, allegedly manipulated the SA Social Security Agency’s system by registering able-bodied people as suffering with disabilities for them to receive social grants, Captain Dineo Lucy Sekgotodi said in a statement.
They were released on R2 000 bail each. The case was postponed to May 26 for further investigation.
