The following speech was delivered by the DA Federal Leader, John Steenhuisen, during a Live Broadcast in Cape Town earlier today urged prompt action regarding suspected NSFAS corruption.
The tentacles of corruption that feed the ANC have now identified a new target: South African students.
While the youth of this country struggle against the odds to build a better future, the ANC is stealing their dreams.
Last week, a series of leaked recordings released by the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse revealed the details of a criminal cartel operating inside the Department of Higher Education and the National Student Financial Aid Scheme, known as NSFAS.
The recordings reveal that service providers that were awarded multi-million Rand tenders to administer direct payments to students allegedly paid kickbacks to the chairman of NSFAS, Ernest Khosa, to the Minister of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande, and to his South African Communist Party.
According to OUTA, “This was done in return for tenders and protection for service providers.”
These revelations demonstrate that nothing is sacred to the ANC government.
Instead of supporting students who are working hard to rise above hardship in order to build a better future for themselves and our country, the ANC only sees another opportunity to loot.
And make no mistake about it: the ANC’s NSFAS corruption has not been a victimless crime.
