The Star Early Edition - - BUSINESS NEWS -

FRAUD­U­LENT qual­i­fi­ca­tions were a prob­lem on the African con­ti­nent, the SA Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Au­thor­ity (SAQA) said yes­ter­day. “Ev­ery­one bat­tles fraud­u­lent qual­i­fi­ca­tions, African coun­tries are also faced with the grow­ing prob­lem of qual­i­fi­ca­tions fraud,” chief ex­ec­u­tive Joe Sa­muels said. SAQA is hold­ing a two-day sem­i­nar in Pre­to­ria on qual­i­fi­ca­tions fraud on the con­ti­nent. It ends to­day. Many coun­tries, in­clud­ing the Demo­cratic Repub­lic of Congo, Ghana, Malawi, Zim­babwe, Kenya, and Cameroon were rep­re­sented. “I ad­vise ev­ery company or in­sti­tu­tion to ver­ify qual­i­fi­ca­tions and their authenticity be­fore hir­ing a can­di­date,” he said. – Sapa
