Allegations of fabrication of nursing students’ marks rocks KZN

An instruction to fabricate marks was allegedly given by head of department Professor Thokozani Mhlongo. Another source, corroborating the allegation, said between three to four people, including the head of department, knew about the scandal. “What transpired is that the data submitted to SANC required the breakdown of all the modules, these were not available, so we went ahead and fabricated the marks.”

The whistleblower said the matter reached a boiling when SANC retrospectively requested the 2014/2015/2016 batch of portfolio of evidence with the marks allocation. It is claimed this was when lecturers were forced to take the only module examined and devised a mathematical formula “to avoid it looking like that one mark was split between different modules”. The SANC has given an assurance that it would look into the allegations.
