Students demand NSFAS allowance at Dr CN Phatudi campus


The EFF Student Command (EFFSC) at Sekhukhune TVET College’s Dr CN Phatudi campus demanded that they receive their National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) allowances.
The students protested at the campus on Tuesday morning. The march saw members of the EFF in the Tubatse sub region also joining.

SRC president Promise Skhosana said, “The allowances given to students must be the same. “We have learners who stay far away from the campus but they are only given R150, while those residing a few kilometres away are getting R4 000.”

The protesters also called on the institution’s student support services (SSS) manager, Ralph Mathoni, to resign from his position.
They alleged that Mathoni was undermining the recently elected SRC that is led by the EFFSC. In their memorandum, they indicated that the new SRC was yet to be inducted at the college.
The students also raised issues on cleanliness at the campus. “We don’t have puried water and our environment is also dirty. We need proper sanitation and lights in our toilets.”

The institution’s Meschack Motadi accepted the memorandum on behalf of the management. He said the students’ demands will be discussed by the board at Sekhukhune TVET. The college was given 7 days to respond to the memorandum submitted.
