I am up to my neck with frustration. Last year August the Dept of Education started illegally deducting money from my salary. I was able to stop them after two months, but I'm yet to see that R2200 that they deducted before I could stop them.
This case has been pending for a YEAR now, and I am at the point of no return. How do you fight a bureaucracy that is unwilling to change or improve? How do I get back money which was illegally taken from me? I'm so agitated by this whole situation - because along the road there are so many people who are trying to help me get back my money, but their hands are tied by faceless, nameless upper-level management CSO's who could not be bothered to sign a piece of paper to give me my money back?
Will I now do what the rest of South Africa does when calling for justice on a matter? Toi-toi outside the GSSC building? Camp out in their foyer? How do I demand that my money be given back to me, in CASH, not deposited into my account which will cause it to be taxed AGAIN (after my salary was already taxed in any case last year when these deductions were made)? I am SO SICK of the incompetence of the GSSC!
GSSC, you are the reason for people leaving the public sector! When you screw up this badly, you make people very angry, give them a reason to not trust Government in general. I don't want to wait until my pension for this money to be paid in, because I'm sure you will not pay the interest accumulated on that amount to me as well....
UGH!!!! Okay, end of this rant and rave, because it won't help in any case. I've seen how useless upper-level management at the GSSC is. Just know, upper-level management of GSSC, you make the lives of your lower-level workers difficult, since the messenger gets killed time and time again over YOUR mess-ups!
