Limpopo police have warned that they will not tolerate bogus further education and training colleges and will deal harshly with those operating them.
“We are going to deal harshly with bogus colleges; we are not going to tolerate them,” said Colonel Ronel Otto.
She said police were keeping an eye on institutions that had mushroomed around the province.
She urged residents and students to report dodgy institutions to authorities.
Two matters involving fake colleges were currently pending in Limpopo courts. One of them related to a bogus nursing college where the owner was arrested.
The other case involved an engineering college that was not accredited.
