In January 2012 Ms. Malebo Mokwele and 59 other people registered with Magnum Shooting Academy under the impression that they were going to receive training that would make them eligible to work in the security cluster. After initially finding out Magnum in the classified section of the Daily Sun newspaper, and others from former students of the school, they duly approached the institution and were told that upon completion of their training, they would qualify to work as SAPS workforces, Metro Police, NPA, lie detector consultants, forensics specialist, and private investigators and also own their private businesses.
They enrolled for National Certificate Policing *(NQF 5) which cost them R19 500.00 per individual. They were promised to receive their certificates in 3 months’ time. Upon receiving their qualifications the students started job-hunting but they found out that they were not formally recognized and unemployable because they were not registered with SASSETA.
The complainant’s right to fair value, quality and safety was violated and they therefore approached Speak Out to intervene.
