Intimidation of Government Officials 'Worrying' - Black Sash

Threats against senior government officials have become a worrying trend, the Black Sash has said, following the resignation of Sassa CEO Thokozani Magwaza.

The NGO said on Monday it noted with concern that Magwaza had accepted an early exit package after less than a year in the position, following good progress in bringing the social grants system in-house.

"His exit follows reports of death threats, a worrying trend of senior government officials being intimidated in the course of performing their work," spokesperson Elsey Philander said.

"Former director general of social development Mr Zane Dangor suffered the same fate with death threats as well as violence, prior to and following his resignation earlier this year."
