DURBAN – The SA Post Office has announced temporary mobile pay points during the month of August for all Sassa payment points affected by the looting and damage to uMlazi post offices.

It said all post offices in the area were affected during the recent unrest.

The Mega City Roof Parking has been arranged for grant payment as follows:

⦁ August 3: Old Age

⦁ August 4: Disability

⦁ August 5: Child support

It said customers could also visit its offices:

⦁ Isipingo Beach

⦁ Merebank

⦁ Lamontville

⦁ Amanzimtoti

⦁ Umbogintwini

Nobuhle Njapha, SA Post Office spokesperson for KZN, said the company had responded to the urgent query by beneficiaries about when and where they would be paid in August.

“We are working with insurance companies and landlords in other shopping centres affected by the recent looting to speed up the process of reinstating the usual post office pay points.

“The Ridge customers will be serviced by Chatsworth and Shallcross post offices while Mobeni customers will be serviced by the Montclair Post office. Our customers can also collect their grant at Boxer; Pick n Pay, Checkers, Shoprite as well as Standard bank ATM, with a zero commission,” said Njapha.

She added that the SA Post Office apologised for the inconvenience caused during this period.
