UYonwaba wase-Eastern Cape, ubenza iziqu ze-Electrical and Infrastructure Construction kulesi sikhungo, kanti kugxekwa iNational Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) ngokufa kwakhe. 

Ngokubika kweTimeslive, wa-xoshwa emqashweni, wahlala ngaphandle isikhathi eside ngo-ba ingakhokhiwe imali ayeyikwe-leta umasitende. Kuthiwa yingoba iNSFAS ibingakhokhile.

Kuthiwa lo mfundi ubengakayi-tholi nemali yokudla kanti nesivumelwano sabo sokuxhasana nalesi sikhwama ngo-2021 besi-ngakaphothulwa. Le ndaba yokusolwa kwalesi sikhwama kuvela ukuthi ibixoxwa ezinkundleni zo-kuxhumana.

Ngokwesitatimende esikhi-shwe yilesi sikhwama, sithi: “Kunezinsolo emphakathini ezi-thi umfundi ushone ebulawa wu-kukhathala nendlala ngenxa yo-kuthi iNSFAS ihambise kancane ukukhokha imali ebhekelela ne-yendawo yokuhlala yalo mfundi, waze wahlala emgwaqweni esali-ndile okuyinto engesilona iqiniso, ngokobufakazi obuqukethwe yisikhungo (eThekwini College).

“Umfundi kumele akulungele ukukhokhelwa yiNSFAS ngokwe-migomo ethile ababekelwa yona okumele baphase ngayo. Lo mfu-ndi ubexhasiwe ngo-2020 kodwa ukuxhaswa kwakhe kulo nyaka ka-2021 bekungakaqinisekiswa. 

“Kwesinakho okuphathelene nalo mfundi, wukuthi indlela aphase ngayo nyakenye beyingavumi ukuba axhaswe kulo nyaka. Ubebalwa nabafundi abayingxenye yesikole obekusacutshungu-lwa izinkinga zabo.

“Kubuhlungu ukuthi lesi simo si-beka kabi lesi si-khwama sikahulumeni emndenini womfundi nase-mphakathini, oku-ngesilona iqiniso. Lokhu kuwukudu-kisa umphakathi.”

Lesi sikhwama sidlulise amazwi enduduzo emnde-nini, sithi kakuka-caci ukuthi imba-ngela yokushona komfundi ngokuse-mthethweni ngabe yini.

Okhulumela uMnyango weze-Mfundo ephakeme uMnu Ishmael Mnisi, uthi uku-xhaswa komfundi nyakenye, kaku-chazi ukuthi nakulo nyaka ubezo-xhaswa. 

Utshele ILANGA ukuthi abafundi babekelwe indlela okumele baphase ngayo izifundo zabo.

“Umfundi uma engaphasanga kwaze kwafika esigabeni esithile ekubeni efunda ngale mali, noma ehlulekile wukuphasa izifundo eziyisibalo esithile kulezi azenza-yo, iNSFAS kayimkhokheli. Nga-kho-ke kuningi okucutshungulwa-yo unyaka nonyaka,” kusho uMnu Mnisi.
