The Department of Social Development is working to assist those affected by shack fires to be reissued with their SASSA cards. Minister Lindiwe Zulu has visited Masiphumelele informal settlement to assess the damage following a devastating blaze that displaced thousands of people.

Speaking to Radio 786, Minister Zulu noted that many of those shacks have been built on swampland. She says that a multifaceted approach will be taken to ensure that relief is delivered and that the community is protected from further disaster.
