It is alleged that between the period 2018 and 2019 the South African Social Security Agency officials colluded with an intermediary to recruit ineligible people in the Tzaneen area to register for a disability grant at a fee and as a result, the state suffered a loss of over R300 000.00.

This brings the total number of arrested suspects to 18.
