#WorldRefugeeDay: SA Government ordered to include refugees in R350 grant

JOHANNESBURG – The High Court in Pretoria has ruled in favour of refugees and asylum seekers in South Africa.

It has ordered government to include them in the COVID-19 unemployment grant.

This includes asylum seekers and special permit holders from Lesotho, Angola and Zimbabwe.
The court declared directions issued by Social Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu unconstitutional and unlawful.

It found that it excluded certain groups from accessing the R350 grant.

The minister has been given five days to quantify the costs of extending the grant and another five days to publish amended regulations.
