Dear Ms Minister
CONCERNS ABOUT ABUSE OF CHILD GRANT – HILLCREST, MTHATHA, EASTERN CAPE

1. The above matter has reference.

2. Numerous reports have been given to me verbally about the abuse children grand in Hillcrest suburb in Mthatha Eastern Cape.

3. It is alleged that many of the people who receives child grant are not using them in accordance with the relevant prescripts and as such children are not attending school and not fed properly.

4. I humbly request your good office to investigate this matter and where possible bring sustainable solution by enforcing the application of the relevant regulations.

5. We await your kind intervention.

Yours sincerely,

Mr LB Gaehler, MP
