The DA welcomes the arrest of the alleged fraudster who ran an illegal nursing FET college in Tzaneen.
According to today’s reports this fraudster had illegal accreditation documents to run this illegal nursing college.
This has had obvious dire consequences to unsuspecting students who wanted to be nurses.
To compound this matter our province’s health care system is in acute shortage of nurses and this gave hope of immediate employment to these students.
We suspect that these illegal nursing colleges could even be wide spread.
At the next parliamentary sitting, the DA will put a motion for a joint task team to be set up between the departments of health and education to start probing all the nursing college for their accreditation.
As the DA, we will do everything in our powers to make sure that our children’s hopes are not dashed by these unscrupulous individuals.
