NSFAF graft

29 April 2016 | Opinion

We have always suspected that there was large scale corruption at the NSFAF, but the exact extent of the corruption, was unknown.
The latest revelations by Calle Schlettwein of the billions that the NSFAF is unable to account for, comes as no surprise.
We are truly sick and tired of hearing about these issues that sadly affect our children’s future, and their education.
We have also been aware for a very long time that the NSFAF only really benefit the children of the elite (in style, no less) and that every other beneficiary of this fund, has only had plenty of trouble – trouble to pay for their studies, with money for a specific book year only paid at or after the end of that specific book year – with students not receiving their results because of the NSFAF’s failure to pay for their studies timeously – going hungry, having no taxi and no food.
This is a crime against our children and in the meantime, these NSFAF people must not be allowed to pass the accountability buck.
And where is the ACC in all of this? Or is the ACC just turning into another lame sitting duck? Not so long ago people were stoned to death for theft, although we do not regard this as a civilised option to deal with these thieves.
It is time that ALL these people at the NSFAF and whoever else had a hand or was complicit to stealing our taxpayers’ money, are arrested immediately with no bail and locked up for a very long time.
This is the only way to send a clear message to those who have any notion of involving themselves in corruption and theft – that we will not tolerate this any longer.
These people have committed gross crimes against our children and against the futures of our children and cannot get away with this.
The NSFAF must be put under the care of the court with immediate effect while investigations are done, documents are seized, accounts are frozen and taxpayers’ money to the fund are halted until forensic investigations are complete – this is the normal way of dealing with fraudulent activity on this scale.
