SABC NEWS reported that hundreds of young people are desperate after being left stranded by some employment recruiting agencies.
The agencies exploited them in order to benefit from state schemes such as the employment Tax initiative.
Musa Shabalala from Soweto aged 28 years old is one of the victims of failed employment or skills development programs aimed at benefiting state or other state incentives.
In KwaZuluNatal 400 students who are in similar positions with students from other parts of the country also reported that they are in limbo and unable to access student loans and employment.
These youths were registered as employed under companies they say they didn’t know.
Despite having reported the matter to the police and to the labour department, they remain stuck.
