SIU recovered R33 million from TVET College

O Mathafa

The ANC led government resolve to strengthen the criminal justice system to recover stolen public funds is slowly yielding expected fruits.

This is evident with the Special Investigating Unit recovering’s of at least R33 million from a Technical and Vocational Education and Training College, money that was meant for students on the National Student Financial Aid Scheme.

The SIU undertook the investigation about the money after President Cyril Ramaphosa signed a proclamation authorising the corruption busting unit to investigate the affairs of NSFAS.

The Northlink College received over R33 million from NSFAS to be allocated to deserving students between 2017 and 2021. The money was invested without authorisation instead of returning it to NSFAS.

The ANC is fully behind the SIU investigation on allegations of corruption and maladministration at NSFAS as well as the recovery of any financial losses suffered by the State through corruption and negligence.
