Special advisor to the Minister of Social Development, Zane Dangor, says the child support grant is too low and the department is extremely concerned about that.
Dangor is of the view that without the grants, a lot of people would be in a desperate situation.
He says that the myth that social grants create dependency has been debunked, "Whether a new governing party comes in, they will have to pay the grants. The issue is not dependency, the issue is how much is enough. What is affordable?”
