BPSA calls for Premier’s bursary application closing date extension

MOUTSE – The Bolsheviks Party of South Africa (BPSA), an opposition in Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) council, has called last week called the office of Limpopo Premier Chupu Mathabatha to extend the closing date for the Premier’s bursary fund.

The BPSA said as much as it was very important to see to it that the people of Limpopo also got support to further their studies in many forms including bursaries, it was significant to see to it that information was easily accessed and distributed and that there was also fair access to services.

Seun Mogotji, BPSA leader, said the current Limpopo Premier’s Bursary Trust Fund (LPNTF) was one of the platforms that deserving people of Limpopo ought to get a chance to apply for and it was important to see to it that people could easily access its application forms than to travel to Polokwane just to get a chance to apply.

Mogotji added that the current situation around access of forms for the applications appeared as a selection process and it was a disadvantage to people residing far from Polokwane.

“According to the education minister, the official end of examination date is 15 December 2020 and this raises a question whether the office of the Premier considers that? With examinations still to end, where will the applicants be able to consolidate all the required documents that include academic records or matric results?”

Mogotji said his party requested that the Premier extended the closing date of the applications and saw to it that the application forms were available in every municipality across the province to enable those deserving but had no resources to travel to Polokwane.

“With COVID-19 regulations still in place to avoid physical contact we request that the application forms to be availed online for convenience sake,” concluded Mogotji.
