The National Student Financial Aid Scheme, NSFAS, has called on the private sector to assist with funds for students in the tertiary sector.

NSFAS has received an unqualified audit opinion from the Auditor General.

NSFAS Board Chairperson, Ernest Khosa, has described the clean audit as a significant achievement in the right direction.

“The time has come for the private sector to come on board. The private sector is the biggest consumer of skills as we believe with the audit outcome that we got, we now have a leg to stand on to confront the private sector and say: the funding crisis in this country is our elephant, please come join us,” says Khosa.
