A student from Walter Sisulu University mistakenly received R14 million in her student debit account from The National Student Aid Scheme about five months ago.
University spokesperson Yonela Tukwayo told TimesLive that some students picked up that the student had started living a very lavish lifestyle.
The student has allegedly spent more than R800 000 thus far.
“It was very callous, and she did not report the matter immediately. She will definitely be held responsible,” Tukwayo said.
“We will also be looking into how this money was spent to buy some of the expensive goods.”
