Country Moves To Level 2 With New Restrictions

Sunday, 30 May, 2021 - 19:14 Author Alan Hammond

Fears of a third wave of Covid-19 spreading across the country has lead the government to move the country back up to Level 2 of the national lockdown.  President Cyril Ramaphosa has addressed the country with another 'family meeting' where he has outlined the new restrictions that have been put in place to attempt to slow the spread of the disease.



President Cyril Ramaphosa has spoken to the country again, reminiscing about the last time he spoke - 2 months ago when cases were dropping after the second wave and restrictions could be relaxed.

Things aren't as good now with confirmed cases increasing and the number of positive cases amongst the total rising to more than 10%. In Gauteng, North West and the Northern Cape the increase in cases has been such that the areas are already technically in a third wave.  The possibility exists that cases could grow similarly in other provinces as well.

As a result of this threat of a third wave spreading across the country the national Cabinet has decided to move the country back to Level 2 of national lockdown. The hours of curfew have been changed to 11pm - 4am. This means that venues like restaurants, bars and clubs must close at 10pm so that their staff can get home before the curfew starts.

The limit for indoor gatherings has been reduced to 100 people and for outdoor gatherings it is 250 people. When venues are small their total capacity must be no more than 50% of their maximum capacity.

The President reminded everyone that wearing masks when in public is still compulsory.

NSFAS Denies Responsibility for Death of TVET Student

Sunday, 30 May, 2021 - 15:16 Author Alan Hammond

26-year-old Yonwaba Manyanya passed away this week and on social media her tragic death was blamed on the  student funding body NSFAS. The organisation has released a statement to clarify the status of her studies.



News of the tragic death of a 26-year-old woman from Durban this week was widely spread on social media this week by her friends and youth activists.  It was announced that she was evicted from her accommodation because she could no longer pay her rent.

The woman was named as Yonwaba Manyanya and identified as a student at the eThwekini TVET College where she had been studying engineering.

Sibongile Mncwabe, Chief Corporate Services Officer for NSFAS told Careers Portal that they are aware of the untimely passing of Yonwaba and they send condolences to her family.

"There are allegations in the public domain that NSFAS has delayed paying allowances to cover the cost of accommodation on time and that Ms. Manyanya subsequently suffered from fatigue and hunger while living on the streets as a consequence of this delay. These allegations are factually incorrect, based on information we have, and that the college has." 
Mncwabe explained that while their record show that Ms Manyana was funded by them in 2020, she was not registered at the eThekweni TVET College for 2021. It appears that she had not met the progression requirements for her course - meaning that she had not passed last year so was not able to re-register for this year.
"She is part of a group of students whose progression status was continuously being queried with the college," explained the NSFAS manager in a statement.
The fact that NSFAS was not required to fund the student for this academic year was not a sufficient argument to placate the trade union federation SAFTU. 
"That NSFAS was not funding Yonwaba this academic year, does not absolve it," the organisation said in a statement. "If anything, this is an indictment on NSFAS and the whole fees-grant model which has been preferred by the 'communist' minister, policy makers and treasury," they said in reference to Minster Blade Nzimande who is responsible for Higher Education and also leader of the SA Communist Party.
"Even if Yonwaba did not starve to death because of NSFAS delaying paying the grant to her, where are many stranded students across the country, include at eThwekini TVET, who are suffering because of delays by NSFAS to pay grants three months into the semester".
"How do students study on empty stomachs? How do students study without textbooks?"

SAFTU's Full Statement
In their official statement NSFAS decried the fact that the sad death of student was being exploited. "NSFAS and eThekwini TVET College shared communication to the Department of Higher Education and Training explaining Ms. Manyanya’s funding status. The facts of the communication clear NSFAS of any connection to this tragic incident. It is unfortunate that this tragic incident is being used inaccurately and unfairly in an insensitive manner to the family and to defame NSFAS. This misleading, unfortunate and opportunistic approach is viewed in contempt by NSFAS and individuals spreading this inaccurate communication should be ashamed".
"NSFAS continues to be highly sensitive to the wide-ranging and essential needs of students and together with institutions, we prioritise the financial wellbeing of NSFAS funded students. We once again pass our condolences to the Manyanya Family," concluded the NSFAS statement.

There has been no official comment from the Department of Higher Education and Training of the eThekweni TVET College. Careers Portal will continue to try to get comment and will publish this if and when it is received.

Learners Fall Ill From Feeding Scheme Meals

Sunday, 30 May, 2021 - 11:28 Author Lauren Chawula

A feeding scheme at a school in Mamelodi has recently been blamed for the alleged food poisoning of over 100 children who fell sick allegedly after eating food provided by the feeding scheme.



Parents of students at Vlakfontein Secondary School in Mamelodi have said they fear for their children's lives after many students allegedly fell ill due to eating food provided by the school's feeding scheme. 

About 111 students from the school were taken to health facilities on Wednesday, 19 May 2021 following suspected food poisoning. Authorities at the school said that the students were complaining of running stomachs and abdominal discomfort when the school day commenced. It is reported that majority of the students affected were Grade 12 students. 

"Environmental health practitioners collected food samples from the school for testing. The last meal the learners had from the school was on Tuesday, according to the school authorities,” said department spokesperson Charles Mabaso. 

Parents accuse the management of the school of failing to inform them on time about what happened to their children when they ate the food from the feeding scheme and started getting ill and needing medical attention. One parent told eNCA that it was concerning that the children were taken to medical facilities where people were ill and possibly had Covid-19. 

Mamelodi EFF members are standing with these parents and are demanding that they receive answers and accountability for what happened. Leaders Pretty Morudu and PR councillor Grace Silaule led the group that approached the school's management. They say that students did not want to eat from this feeding scheme because it was not the first time that it had caused them to get sick. 

Pretoria News was also shown a video which shows the students at the school gate asking to be let out so that they could get food from home or buy food outside of the school but the gate was locked. 

Morudu says that the most frustrating part of the incident was that parents were not informed urgently, rather they had to find out from students after school. 

"We want the department to ensure the school allows pupils to go out to buy food from the vendors who used to earn a living by trading at the school many years ago.

“What we do not want is to deal with similar incidents, and for parents to only find out when pupils get home because the principal did not report this on time,” Morudu said.

Department of Education spokesperson Steve Mabona said that investigations were underway to find out what led to the students needing medical attention after eating food from the feeding scheme. 

Mabona says that the school has never received any complaint of such an incident before however Morudu says that the previous incident was not as aggressive as this one. 

The feeding scheme at the school has been temporarily shut down as investigations continue.

Government Launches School Safety Intervention Initiative

Saturday, 29 May, 2021 - 12:32 Author Raigan Cloete

The Department of Basic Education has started embarking on a nationwide school safety intervention initiative. The initiative is aimed at addressing school violence, bullying, drug use, and social ills, which directly impact educational outcomes.



The Basic Education Department announced that they partnered with sister departments, key stakeholders, and social partners for the school safety intervention initiative, in an effort to stop bullying involving learners, school staff members, and sometimes community members.

The “School Safety - Violence, and Bullying Prevention Initiatives” strive to mobilise learners, teachers, parents, and key stakeholders in promoting a safe learning environment for good quality education and motivate community involvement in schools to prevent incidents of bullying and violence. 

Bullying can have a direct impact on educational outcomes as it causes depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, suicide, absenteeism, low academic performance, and school dropout.

The initiative requires engagement with the School Management Teams and SGBs on reporting and taking proactive steps to handle disruptive incidents if and when they arise. 

This programme hopes to emphasize the importance, of playing an active role in school activities, to parents. The programme will also aim to equip the parents with tools for effective monitoring and management of bullying.

The government departments and key stakeholders have joined to provide services such as health screening, psycho-social, career guidance, and ID registration for learners who are eligible.

Equal Education Complete Fact-Finding Process Into Drowning of Pupil

Saturday, 29 May, 2021 - 10:23 Author Raigan Cloete

Following the tragic death of Eastern Cape pupil Avethandwa Nokhangela, Equal Education implemented a fact-finding process which was managed by the Equal Education Law Centre (EELC) which was set to conclude on Friday 28 May.



The organisation announced that an independent panel was appointed to review the fact-finding process handled by the EELC and to discover the circumstances around the drowning of Avethandwa.

The 15-year-old was a learner member of Equal Education. Unfortunately, while at a leadership camp at Palm Springs, which was held by the organisation, Avethandwa drowned. 

According to Equal Education, the independent panel consisted of highly experienced advocates. Tembeka Ngcukaitobi SC, Frances Hobden, and Lunga Siyo sat on the panel and conducted the investigation.

The independent panel were responsible for the following:

  • Review the information which was compiled through the fact-finding process conducted by the EELC. The information included the final report and statements.
  • Understand what took place during the accident.
  • Interviewed staff at Equal Education and students who were present at the leadership camp.
  • Recommend possible restorative justice processes between pupil’s family and Equal Education.
  • Provide findings and recommendations related to the organisation and the accountability or remedial measures that need to be taken.

The organisation stated that the independent investigation report will be handed over to the National Council of Equal Education to consider the steps forward. 

However, due to the subject matter concerning minors, the organisation could not confirm whether the report would be published.

“We want to express again how very sorry we are for the horrible pain that Avethandwa’s family is in,” said Equal Education.

The organisation stated that “Supporting her family has been and continues to be our priority, and our deep care for her family and for our members, and our commitment to accountability, have guided all our efforts at this very painful time.”

“We believe that the compassionate approach – which was to prioritise support to the grieving family, learners and our staff – was the correct one in the circumstances. We also chose to respect Avethandwa’s family’s request for space after laying her to rest.”

“Not only would divulging details in these circumstances have been insensitive and uncaring; it would prejudice the EELC’s fact-finding inquiry and the work of the independent panel,” said the organisation.

Avethandwa’s family did not issue any statements for the fact-finding process, however, they were willing to participate in the independent investigation.

Student Debt Crisis Continues To Plague South African Youth

Friday, 28 May, 2021 - 13:23 Author Lerato Botha

With the March 2021 protests against university student debts, it has become clear that few changes have been made to correct the ongoing issue around tertiary education funding. 




At the beginning of the 2021 academic year, university students all across the country were faced with the inconvenience of unpaid loans and uncleared debts. This resulted in their inability to re-register at universities despite having met the academic requirements.The debt crisis is a common issue amongst South African youth and it continues to afflict students each year.

The year of 2021 was no different, with protests across the country having erupted in March against the problem of academic exclusion due to unpaid historical debts. The Minister of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande had announced a plan in early March to decrease the amount of government resources that would go towards NSFAS funding. From thereon, the fire that once ignited the #FeesMustFall movement of 2015 manifested into the #WitsAsinamali campaign.

The protests then spread to universities all across the country, with students urging institutions to clear all historical debt for academically eligible students, and for national student funding to be increased.

The resurrection of these protests forced students to recognise the lack of institutional change in the area of tertiary education funding. This was not the first time that protests around the student debt crisis had arisen. The #FeesMustFall movement of 2015 is an earlier example of a call for more affordable education.

Six years later, the issue of affordable education still stands, with many institutions still charging full tuition despite the COVID-19 pandemic forcing many to work through online learning.

The 2021 protests ended with registration dates being extended, and students being granted the opportunity to register regardless of historical debt. However, the core issue for students remains that tertiary education is still not affordable for the average South African youth.

Therefore, the potential for even more protest in future remains likely, as institutions have only managed to provide a temporary solution to an ongoing problem.

Department Launches Anti-Bullying Drive

Friday, 28 May, 2021 - 12:32 Author Simbongile Makanda

The passing of 15 year old Lufuno Mavhunga has given government a wake up call about bullying at schools. 




The Department of Basic Education has launched a new nationwide anti-bullying drive to raise awareness about bullying and its effects on learners. 

The late Lufuno took her life after footage of her bullying attack went viral on social media. The video and Lufuno's passing caused public outcry, as the public took to social media to call on the Department of Basic Education to step in and address bullying. 

A 14 year old learner, accused of bullying Lufuno, was then arrested and appeared in court on charges of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm. 

Regional Communication Manager at the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), Mashudu Malabi-Dzangi confirmed that the 14 year old learner will appear in court in June,

“The child in conflict with the law has appeared at the Thohoyandou Magistrates Court on a charge of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm. The bail was extended and the case was postponed to June 29 for further investigations,”

Members of Parliament have come forward with comments calling for more action to be taken to put an end to bullying at schools.

DA Shadow Minister for Social Development said bullying affects 3.2 million young South Africans every year.

Dr Suzan Thembekwayo of the EFF and Mthokozisi Nxumalo of the IFP shared their thoughts about bullying at schools. 

"There must be a dedicated social programme to remove drugs and alcohol in schools and discourage them as a youth culture."

"The threat of criminal sanction and a permanent criminal record must serve as a wakeup call to the other pupils. One incident can change their entire lives"

The Department of Basic Education said it is working with its social partners to collaborate and have an effective anti-bullying strategy going forward. 

"We are rolling out a programme geared towards school safety, violence and bullying prevention initiatives. This programme is envisaged to be rolled out annually to raise awareness." said Basic Education Deputy Minister, Reginah Mhaule.

Will TVET College Students Get Laptops From NSFAS?

Friday, 28 May, 2021 - 11:02 Author Lerato Botha

TVET College students funded by NSFAS will be eligible to receive loan laptops from NSFAS by ordering them through their Online Order portal.



April of 2021 saw the first batch of loan laptops being received by NSFAS after they had announced in January that they were expecting the laptop rollout to begin in March. Laptop distribution, however, only began making its way to public institutions all over the country after their initial receipt in April.

It is common knowledge that public university students supported by NSFAS funding are eligible for the receipt of NSFAS loan laptops. With TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) Colleges also falling under the public institution sphere, they too are supported by NSFAS funding, and hence, students at TVET Colleges are also granted the opportunity to order laptops through NSFAS.

Just as is done in public universities, students at TVET colleges are afforded the possibility to order laptops through the online application option. NSFAS funded students receive a once-off annual learning material allowance of about R5 200 dedicated to the purchase of textbooks, learning supplies, and laptops. 

NSFAS students are also granted the option to not request a loan laptop if they do not require one. However, if a student does request a laptop through the online portal, an amount from around R3 000 onwards can be deducted from this allowance to go towards the laptop loan payment.

TVET College and public university students alike can follow the same instructions to order a laptop on loan from NSFAS. Registered students that have already been approved for funding are simply required to go to the NSFAS website, then from there, go to myNSFAS and without logging in, they will see a prompt that allows them to place an order for a laptop. Thereafter, the student can follow the instructions for making an order.

The only requirements to make an order includes; the student's ID number, a student number, the student's contact details, the name of the institution where the student is completing their studies, the name of the student's campus, and the student's home address. The option to order laptops online remains open as of May 2021.
