DA Limpopo Provincial legislature
The DA strongly condemns suspension of the Sekhukhune FET CS Palo Campus students who are unable to pay for their registration fees R1500.00.
These young people are expected to pay these high amounts because the college has mismanaged and exhausted NSFAS funding for the learners and particularly the poorest of the poor.
According to Democratic Alliance Student Organisation in the campus Gidion Nchabeleng, the college management have dismally failed to manage the finances of the institution and now they are busy with damage control at the expense of our learners.
The DA also learnt through DASO that one other trick used by college management is to force students to pay R523.00 for admin fee at the beginning every trimester and semester while it is only supposed to be a once off payment of the 1st year entrants.
DA will write to the relevant education authority to ensure that the situation is served proper intervention that will see our young people receive the education that they rightfully deserve.
