Snoozer caught on camera

South Africa
An employee of the SA Social Security Agency was filmed with a cellphone allegedly sleeping during working hours.

HAMMARSDALE - An employee of the SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) in KwaZulu-Natal has been caught snoozing on the job.

The employee was filmed with a cellphone by a man who accompanied his father to the makeshift registration centre in the province.

The footage shows elderly people waiting to re-register for their social grants while an official appears to be sleeping in full view.

Sassa said the employee belongs to Cash Paymaster Services (CPS), one of the agency’s service providers.

“We will then brief CPS accordingly for them to make an investigation and if we discover that work was hindered by the employees being asleep we will then revoke the service level agreement and see what are possible penalties we can impose to them,” said Vusi Mahaye of Sassa.

Sassa said it views the matter in a very serious light.
