JOHANNESBURG - Post Office CEO Mark Barnes says he hopes the new Sassa CEO will abide by an agreement allowing the Post Office to take over the payment of social grants.

Barnes says former Sassa CEO Thokozani Magwaza signed off on a deal with the Post Office just days before he was allegedly ousted earlier this week.
