The African Gainako Poverty Alleviation Project, a college run as a pyramid scheme by Senegalese national Sane Salif in Soweto, continues to give "lectures" amid allegations of a rip-off by the poor students.
Sowetan published a story last week detailing the college's unscrupulous operations in which students are not allowed to write exams unless each brings along two other students to enrol.
Salif claims his institution provides lectures in maths, science and telemedicine, which are in fact not offered. The college operates from the premises of the now defunct Emthonjeni Primary School.
On further investigation, we discovered that the college, which Salif claims is a non-profit organisation, is not listed with the services Seta, which is responsible for call centre institutions.
Gainako is registered as a non-governmental organisation by the Department of Trade and Industry.
Salif claimed that he had registered his "poverty alleviation project" with the health and welfare sector education and training authority, but neither his name nor that of the college appears on the data of the SA Qualifications Authority, which governs all Setas.
Sowetan compared Salif's notes with those of other reputable call centre institutions and found that Corner Stone, Cool Ideas and Siyanqoba Seminars' modules have on their front cover registration numbers, services Seta logos and their company logos.
A trainer in call centre, Mathithela Morena, said: "The material I have seen does not look convincing that it was approved by a particular Seta.
"If you want to offer training, you have to submit your material to the relevant Seta for approval.
"The module does not have specific outcomes that the students are supposed to have achieved after attending the course."
