Cape Town - Parliament has finally approved a bill dealing with fake qualifications and has sent it to President Cyril Ramaphosa to be signed into law.
The National Council of Provinces approved the National Qualifications Framework Bill. This was after the National Assembly had dealt with the bill since last year.
Parliament said in a statement it was time the government dealt with fake qualifications.
The bill proposes that those who are found to have fake qualifications should be shamed and their names published in a national register.
Those found guilty will face a prison term of five years or a fine.
