graduate thumb100 Sowetan reports that a Dihlabeng District Municipality official who was accused of falsifying her qualifications to land a plush job has provided the newspaper with her qualifications and a full academic record from the University of the Free State (UFS).  

Seipati Mavis Mabula, the director of corporate services in the municipality, was accused by some officials at the municipality of allegedly submitting a fraudulent bachelor of administration degree, a claim she vehemently denied.  On Tuesday, after Sowetan published the story, the municipality’s spokesperson Tshediso Maitse said they had done a proper investigation based on the auditor general’s management letter.  He furnished a copy of Mabula’s bachelor of administration degree certificate, an academic transcript which was obtained from UFS and a report by the SA Qualification Authority indicating that her degree was valid.  Mabula said:  “I studied at UFS, QwaQwa campus.  The institution told me that I owed R7,000 and needed to pay it before it can give me the transcript.”
