Following the advertisement of the traffic learnership posts, The Mpumalanga Department of Community Safety, Security and Liaison MEC, Gabisile Shabalala warns fraudsters not to take advantage of vulnerable aspiring traffic learners by making them pay for learnerships.

“The MEC is aware of the rumours doing the rounds that there are mischievous people who promise entry into traffic learnerships in exchange for money. We are appealing to young people not to fall prey to fraudsters but to instead report such individuals to the police so that they are brought to book. Government jobs, learnerships and internships are not for sale,” said the MEC.
