NEHAWU To Picket At NSFAS Offices Tomorrow In Cape Town After Expiry Of Ultimatum And CEO Refusal To Resign

Wednesday August 16, 2018

The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union [NEHAWU] will go ahead with its planned picket tomorrow at the offices of the National Student Financial Aid Scheme [NSFAS] after the expiry of the ultimatum given to the CEO to vacate office.

The national union had given Mr Steven Zwane five days to resign as the CEO of NSFAS. The ultimatum began on Sunday the 12th August 2018 and expires today. Mr Zwane has failed to heed our call to leave office thus the national union is descending on the NSFAS offices in Wynberg Cape Town to help Mr Zwane to vacate office. A general meeting of all members at NSFAS will be held tomorrow [Friday August 17, 2018] at 10am to brief members on the matter of the CEO by a delegation led by the General Secretary of the national union, Cde Zola Saphetha.

Our members will picket at his office in order to help him to leave the position and office. However, such activity will be conducted peacefully and shall be located within the limits of the South African law and other legislative frameworks. The picket will also be joined by the South African Students Congress [SASCO]
