Cash collections have been taking place at campuses as registration fee or a fee to secure space for 2021 academic year by individuals who claim to be college agents.
The Ehlanzeni TVET College is concerned about the scam and would like to inform the public that no cash collection is allowed at any campus.
“Ehlanzeni TVET College takes these allegations of criminal conduct very seriously. Besides, the college is looking into the matter internally and will also approach the police to investigate the claims so that all those who are associated with the alleged scam, whether inside or outside the college, can be brought to book,” said the college’s spokesperson, Mxolisi Nzimande.
The statement also states that members of the public should also note that the college will only be attending to those who have applied during the application period and were successful. There will be no walk-in registrations that will take place during the registration week of January 18-21, 2021, except for Mapulaneng Campus for Engineering Studies. Those who did not apply in 2020 for 2021 should not fall for scams making promises and giving false hope to them.
“No official or student is allowed to accept money from anyone who is at the campus for a Placement Test or Registration. We, therefore, urge anyone who may fall victim of such activities to not hesitate but report the matter to the Campus Manager of that particular campus or College Management immediately.”
