From faking qualifications to gaining a dubious degrees, there is is now a growing trend, with many high profile cases coming under the spotlight, here brings you some of the scams...

In July the media reported that SABC board chairperson Ellen Tshabalala had lied about her qualifications. It took Tshabalala almost six months to resign from her position after the allegations surfaced.

ANC stalwart and MP, Pallo Jordan was also exposed for lying about his qualification. 

In August it was revealed that contrary to what is stated on his CV, Jordan did not have any qualifications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison or the London School of Economics.
Dudu Myeni and Jacob Zuma 

But Unlike Tshabalala Jordan acknowledged his error and resigned from his position as MP soon after he was exposed.

Many prominent people are reported to have received unrecognised degrees from Calvary university, including Zanu (PF) stalwarts Phillip Chiyangwa and James Makamba, who both got degrees from the discredited Philippines-based St Linus University.

Tourism minister Walter Mzembi was last year linked to a shady doctoral degree programme facilitated by a Zimbabwean professor, Lovemore Mbigi, based in South Africa.

Bright Matonga, a former Information deputy minister and Zanu (PF) Member of Parliament, was studying for a doctorate in communication studies with the so-called university.

SA Airways (SAA) board Chairperson Dudu Myeni and acting CEO, Nico Bezuidenhout were also accused of misinterpreting their qualifications. 

Myeni listed a bachelor's degree in administration as one of her qualifications when she was appointed in 2009 but the degree in was removed last year's annual report.

She said she had listed the degree because she had been studying towards it. In two annual reports, Bezuidenhout was said to have a B.Com degree and an MBA, but it was revealed that he only has a matric.

 He defended himself by saying he was not the one who said he had those qualifications. Another high profile leader who said he never made claims that he had certain qualifications was SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng. 

The public protector ordered that action be taken against Motsoeneng after she found that he lied about having a matric certificate, he insists he never lied to anyone. - Online Sources
