So you're focusing your attention on this BS while there are people holding this country hostage with theft and corruption and nothing is being done to them.

Yea, that seems balanced.

NQFAA now in effect.
The law now broadly holds it a criminal offence if anyone "falsely or fraudulently claims to be holding a qualification or part-qualification registered on the NQF or awarded by an education institution, skills development provider, QC or obtained from a lawfully recognised foreign institution."
The provision is intentionally broad enough to cover just about any type of misleading claim about just about any type of formal qualification, says Shirley Lloyd, the recently retired head of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) directorate, and one of the driving forces behind the new law.
If someone reads a false claim of a degree on Twitter or LinkedIn and that person is misled, "then they should be able to raise it," says Lloyd. The South African Qualifications Authority (Saqa) will be obliged to investigate such a claim, and hand it over to prosecutors if it is in breach of the law.

With the number of people in local and national government who have been found to have misrepresented their skills and qualifications, one could argue that this is a step in the correct direction?

Hopefully they start nailing the multi-job in parallel fiasco that people do.. ie claim they have 10yrs exp but linearly they have been working for 7-8yrs.. some even 6.
