On Monday, two primary cooperatives, based at Ga-Masemola village, held a meeting accusing the Greater Sekhukhune region secondary corporative (GSRSC) of misleading the public and giving them false hope over the missing money.
This comes after learners previously signed a six months contract in wholesale and retail seta, partnering with GSRSC.
According to the learners after signed the contract they never exposed to in service training and they didn’t received their stipend.
Although,learners said the members of GSRSC kept telling them that they should not worry because the money is coming, adding they said this from May to date. Some learners said this impacted them badly because they can’t try their luck with other organisations because on the system it displays that they had signed the contract.
“We went to Polokwane for another learnership after they recruited us and their system shows that we belong to other learnership. We felt disappointed knowing that we don’t get anything from the one disadvantaging us,” said learners.
A reliable source told Sekhukhune times that R17.8 million was set aside to assist the two primary corparatives.
“We had a meeting on Monday and we invited the GSRSC to clarify to the community why learners are not doing anything while they signed the contract. They said they are waiting for SETA to process the funds to start the project. However social development shows that those two corparatives have been funded,” said source.
We fail to comprehend why GSRSC allowed pupil to sign contract without funds.
“They kept telling learners that money is coming but from May till to date nothing has materialised.Justice must be done by paying those learners from the day contract signed.
Member of primary cooperative said this is nothing but clear demonstration that the mother body is consists of self-serve of fraudulent. She said 750 learners were recruited to be in service training.
Attempted to reach and get a comment from GSRSC was unsuccessful as their phone rang unanswered.
