Union Wants Laptops Delivered To Students Before 2021

Following Minister Blade Nzimande's briefing on updates in the higher education sector, the South African Union of Students (SAUS) is now demanding that students receive their laptops from NSFAS to finish the 2020 academic year instead of receiving them next year. They have also responded to other aspects of the Minister's briefing which held many important updates.

During the Minister's briefing, he said that laptops are now being procured and that students will only be receiving them next year. This, SAUS says, is regrettable as many students still need the laptops to finish the current academic year.

The Union have therefore decided to make an urgent appeal to the department to deliver the devices to students as early as possible, "so that all deserving students are not prejudiced".

They also reject the proposed fee increase for 2021. Nzimande made it clear that fee increases need to happen to keep higher educations sustained but that he will make sure that increases do not exceed 4.7% for tuition and 6.7% for accommodation.

SAUS is of the opinion that, "the submission to university councils regarding a CPI-linked fee increase of 4.7% for tuition and 6.7% for residences is at odds with the socio-economic realities of many students and households today and the financial challenges and recoveries as a result of the COVID pandemic".

They believe the increase doesn't make sense when looking at financial constraints citizens of South Africa are facing as well as the student debt which amounted to R9 billion this year as the increase will worsen these factors.

The position of SAUS is very clear that we want a zero percent fee increase for the 2021 academic year.

The Union is also asking that the Department of Higher Education to communicate with universities to ensure that Private Landlords stop evicting students from residences due to payment challenges during the extension of the academic year.

"If there was any moment for a private landlord to practice corporate social responsibility is now during covid-19 by ensuring that students are supported and allowed to stay to finish the academic year," continued the Union.

Before the Minister took to the podium to highlight updates in the higher education sector, he had engagements with SAUS on student challenges and demands ranging from the N+2 rule, NSFAS appeals, student allowances, fees for 2021, laptops and data, etc.

The Union welcomes the Minister's announcements regarding the extension of NSFAS allowances, the appointment of a NSFAS board as the current Administrator finishes his term and the conclusion of the laptop tender process.

As SAUS, we further would like to commend the Leadership provided by the outgoing NSFAS Administrator and the Minister in responding to this request with the necessary urgency and given the limited resources already affecting the sector

SAUS assures students that, "The new board will receive SAUS’s undivided support to ensure that the interests of students are championed moving forward" as a team of SAUS representatives meet with the new board and management to make sure that the work done already by outgoing Administrator Randall Carolissen is continued.

Pfizer Vaccines Distributed In The UK Next Week

Careers Portal Latest -

Recently the United Kingdom has approved the Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine. They are the first country to approve this vaccine. Distribution is expected to take place next week.

Article Category: News

The United Kingdom has announced that they have approved Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is expected to be released next week.

A statement has been released which shows that their government has accepted the recommendation from the Independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to approve the vaccine for general use.

These vaccines will first be distributed to the priority groups, which include health and care staff, care home residents, the clinically vulnerable, and the elderly.

The statement read that, "After months of rigorous clinical trials and thorough analysis of the data, the MHRA concluded that the vaccine has met its strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness."

Although vaccines will be distributed, everyone is advised to play their part and abide by the restrictions.

Albert Bourla, the Pfizer chairman, felt that by producing the vaccine, it was a great breakthrough in the fight against COVID-

"This authorisation is a goal we have been working toward since we first declared that science will win, and we applaud the MHRA for their ability to conduct a careful assessment and take timely action to help protect the people of the UK," said Bourla.

In the days to come, Pfizer and BioNTech expect further regulatory decisions from other countries.

The announcement came as England exited a month-long coronavirus lockdown, but most of the country remained under restrictions as a new regional system for cutting infection rates kicked in.

Their lockdown began in November was implemented to slow down the infection rates, reduce pressure on health services, and to allow families to get together over the festive season.

"All we need to do now is to hold our nerve until these vaccines are indeed in our grasp and indeed being injected into our arms. We cannot afford to relax, especially during the cold months of winter," warned prime minister Boris Johnson.

More SASSA Grants Will Lapse This Month

Careers Portal Latest -

Wednesday, December 2, 2020 - 10:36Author: Sakinah Samuels

SASSA has given an update on the lapsing of some of the grants they provide with some lapsing this month. Seeing that it's the beginning of the month, that means that it's the time for beneficiaries to receive their grant money.

Article Category: News

SASSA's Temporary Disability and Care Dependency will lapse on 31 December, the end of this month. Seeing that it's the beginning of the month, that means that it's the time for beneficiaries to receive their grant money.

Temporary Disability grants and Care Dependency grants that lapsed from 01 February were extended to 31 December 2020. These grants are for children who turned 18 years in the period from February to December 2020.

A statement released by the agency read:

The Minister of Social Development took the decision to extend them to 31 December 2020 in response to the declared State of Disaster which made it difficult for beneficiaries to apply for social grants, especially those requiring medical assessments because of the limited access to health facilities. These two grants will now finally lapse on 31 December 2020.

Should you be receiving the Temporary Disability Grant and you feel as though your medical condition still prevents you from working, you are advised to visit your nearest SASSA Local Office from 5 January so that you can re-apply. This is not a review process, but a new application due to temporary disability grants being awarded for a specific period only.

Care givers of children whose Care Dependency grants will lapse on 31 December 2020 are also encouraged to approach SASSA local offices from 5 January so that they can apply for Disability grants for the young adults. Be sure to bring clinical records concerning the medical conditions of applicants when applying.

SASSA has said, "SASSA will endeavour to limit the time applicants have to spend in queues waiting for service, as much as practically possible."

Beneficiaries who are having their grants lapse are said to have received courtesy letters or have them on the way informing them of the lapsing. They are then requested to respond to these letters as soon as possible.

Care givers of children whose Care Dependency Grants will lapse do not need to bring the children to the offices but should come to apply as the proxy for their children.

Now that November is coming to an end, SASSA has announced the dates for beneficiaries to get paid for December. The December payment dates are as follows:

  • Older Person's Grants 1 December 2020
    • This includes any grants linked to these accounts.
  • Disability Grants 2 December 2020
    • This includes any grants linked to these accounts
  • All other grants 3 December 2020

All unlinked children's grants includes Foster Care grants, Care Dependency grants and Child Support grants.

SASSA is known to be used to scam vulnerable individuals and has said that they will continue to call on citizens to report the misuse and incorrect payment of social grants and promised to continue preventing fraud.

CPUT To Pay For NSFAS Allowances Out Their Own Pocket

Article Category: News

Following an announcement made the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) concerning NSFAS allowances, students were outraged with some bringing up the word 'protest'. The University then decided that they will fund students' allowances themselves.

In the statement, CPUT starts off by saying that the Minister approved only the Living Allowance to be paid and continued to say:

From the university’s side, preliminary work is done to ensure readiness. For instance, in order to identify the students who will qualify for additional allowance, the Assessment & Graduation Centre (AGC) confirmed the final assessment for all Faculties and the date for publication of results.

The Minister announced last week that NSFAS would be extending allowances students receive due to the academic year being extended. However, there was a condition for this. Only students who has their academic year extended pass 2020 will have their allowances extended. 

CPUT explained further that, "Where students have completed their academic year, they will need to wait until the 2021 academic year for their new allocations."

Students are now having to hang in there longer as the University undertakes their internal processes as well as waits for guidelines from NSFAS and the Department. CPUT included the words, 'speedy implementation', in their statement but students have said they've exhausted their resources while waiting already. 

CPUT students took to social media to air out their grievances concerning the University. Students even had #CPUTmustfall trending, again. 

One student said on social media:

We haven't received our December allowances and there's no update from management. We are still writing and we are hungry. When are we getting our allowances? 

Another CPUT student commented further and said, "We are using the same allowances to support those without funding. Without our NSFAS allowances that means those we donate to won't have anything to eat also. We get money and food from other students and distribute them to others."

The University did however also provide students with an update when it comes to disbursing their allowances saying that they are aware that the delay in disbursing them has led to unnecessary hardship for some.

CPUT is said to be engaging with student leadership and NSFAS regarding the outstanding allowances and when funds should be expected with the University proclaiming:

... we have decided to proactively deal with the delays to avoid further stress to students.

The institution has now taken it upon themselves and have said that management will fund the outstanding allowance payments in the interim until NSFAS clears the backlog and releases the next round of funds. 

Students should now expect to start receiving their allowances from 4 December as the University urges them to be patient.

Finally, some resolution for the leaked exam papers saga. A man has been arrested in connection with one of the exam papers' leaks. Hours before Matrics were set to sit down and write their exams recently, on three occasions the exam papers were leaked. The Mathematics and Physical Sciences exam papers were allegedly leaked via Whatsapp.

On 25 November, Themba Daniel Shikwambana was arrested by the Hawks Serious Corruption Investigation members in connection to the leaked Mathematics Paper 2 exam. 

Learners are said to have had seen the Mathematics Paper 2 hours before they were set to write. 

How exactly did he get access to the paper? Well, Shikwambana works for a Johannesburg-based company contracted by the Department of Basic Education (DBE) to print this year’s Grade 12 examination papers.

Shikwambana appeared before the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court and is out on bail of R1 000. The matter was remanded to 23 January 2021.  

On the leaks, Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, said:

Up to now, the papers that we have confirmed that were leaked were your Physics paper and your Math paper. The physics paper, we picked up the leak before it was spread.

In the case of the third paper, the Department is said to have been able to contain it and make sure that pupils wrote a back up paper. The leak of the Business Economics paper was detected on a Saturday, days before learners were set to write the next Wednesday.

As for the Maths paper, due to it being spread on WhatsApp, it then went to a broader community. 

Motshekga said that it's very difficult to tell how may learners had access to the paper and what time from just the WhatsApp groups with some learners saying they only saw the paper after the exam. 

When asked about whether the papers will be rewritten or not, Motshekga answered:

It depends what the Hawks say. There's the credibility of the exam that we have to protect so it depends on what the impact is towards the credibility of the exams but it's also the question of the rights of other learners. 

"If it was only contained to that WhatsApp group, we are not sure," explained the Minister.

The investigation on the leaks are however ongoing as more work still need to be concluded.

The report will be processed internally and Minister [Angie] Motshekga will host a media briefing later this week to make an announcement.

- Department of Basic Education

“The council agreed that the credibility, integrity and fairness of the examination cannot be compromised,” the department said.

The report on the full impact of the leak is still not complete as the Department plans to meet with Umalusi to give information they currently have. 

Motshekga hopes to get information from the Hawks by Friday.
