Ngwenya, Ms DB to ask the Minister of Social Development
Whether her department continues to render the service of registration of beneficiaries during the lockdown period to curb the spread of Covid-19; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?
The Department is not in the business of registering beneficiaries. Instead, it provides social services to its beneficiaries. Under the conditions that accompany the CoVID-19 pandemic, the Department and its entities provide services as determined by the regulations that are relevant to the different levels of the lockdown period.
