Here’s how the student who accidentally received R14 million from NSFAS spent the cash!

While it is every student’s dream to wake up with six figures accidentally in their account, this one student from the Eastern Cape actually lived the dream when a human error from her University occurred.

The Walter Sisulu University in the Eastern Cape has confirmed it accidentally sent a student R14-million straight to her debit account — and only noticed when she started posting her receipts online.

It is reported that the student, who should have been receiving some kind of bursary allowance from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), received the money five months ago and has been living it up ever since. It is believed she spent around R500 000.

It seems she may have kept it up, too, were it not for her need to boast on social media — where it seems most are judging her.

“NSFAS” was trending on Twitter Wednesday morning, with many decrying its carelessness and the fact that R14-million could have paid many a tuition.

NSFAS, whose financial aid functions as a loan, says that the student will have to “repay every cent of the money spent even if it takes 20 years to do so” — but one user has offered up advice.
