VOICES

As those who pose as journalists, yet they are hired guns, often do, Edwin Naidu’s article is full of inaccuracies, and uses hyperbole to create a narrative that is not supported by facts.

In his article, Naidu tries desperately hard to create an impression that money (to the amount of R866 million) that was meant for the establishment of a TVET college in Orange Farm has somehow disappeared, and that “nobody can account for what happened to the funding”.
