Johannesburg - President Cyril Ramaphosa has signed into law tough new rules criminalising the submission of fraudulent qualifications or misrepresentation of education credentials.
Job seekers and prospective students who submit fraudulent qualifications or misrepresent them will now face up to five years in prison in terms of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) Amendment Act 2019.
SA Qualifications Authority (Saqa) chief executive Joe Samuels told Independent Media on Tuesday that Ramaphosa signed the Act into law last Tuesday. The new law was published in the Government Gazette on Monday. According to Samuels, Saqa, which is responsible for advancing the NQF objectives, will study the Act and look very seriously parts that can be implemented immediately and do preparatory work for other aspects of the new law.
The Act is expected to come into effect on a date determined by Ramaphosa by proclamation in the Gazette and its provisions may have different commencement dates.

Just Joe Pick-Up-The-Soap of course.

On another note, anyone know where one can buy a Degree?

The one done correctly, should I phone the Uni and then they send you another copy of your supposed degree

What about jail time for stealing money meant for a dairy farm? Or engineering situations where your Saxonwold buddies can loot SOEs? Or ransacking a bank? Are those all okay as long as your CV is in order? Just asking.

Call university graduate or admin office. They will need either your student number (if you can remember) or ID Number, year of graduation, degree program and name + surname.

They will then re-print it and you will get a new one with a new? Serial number at the back of certificate (this is like the CVV number to verify it, not sure if reprints have new serial number or retain the old).

Ps there is a cost associated with this process
