Leaked Recordings Expose Corruption

Last week, OUTA made public audio recordings that shed light on questionable practices surrounding the administration of NSFAS’ new direct payment system. The recordings suggest that service providers, responsible for this system, paid substantial kickbacks to Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande, NSFAS board chair Ernest Khosa, and even contributed a significant sum to Nzimande political party, the South African Communist Party. These alleged payments are believed to be in exchange for lucrative tenders and protection.

Call for Resignation

In light of these revelations, OUTA is calling for the immediate resignation of Minister Blade Nzimande and NSFAS board chair Ernest Khosa. The organization contends that a pervasive patronage network steeped in corruption must be dismantled, holding those at the highest echelons accountable.

Escalating the Allegations

OUTA CEO Wayne Duvenage has announced the organization’s intent to share the leaked recordings and a comprehensive report with key investigative bodies. The Special Investigating Unit (SIU), the Office of the Public Protector, the South African Revenue Service (SARS), and the Auditor-General’s office are among the institutions slated to receive the evidence. Additionally, OUTA plans to draft letters to President Cyril Ramaphosa, urging swift and decisive action.

The organization commitment to exposing corruption within the education system reflects a broader call for ethical governance and the restoration of public trust. The coming weeks are poised to reveal how these accusations will be addressed at the highest levels of South African leadership.
