Screenshots of the conversation with the individual show that they saw the application and wanted to know how much she was willing to pay.

“Not me applying to the University of Venda only to receive these texts, I am shocked and disgusted by the corruption in this country,’’ she tweeted.

This person knew her full name and student ID number.  “By the way our services start from R3 500 but for assurance sake, you can pay half now, then the rest of the amount after submission.’’

The tweep responded that she did not have the funds. Following that, the individual discovered that this strange conversation had been shared on Twitter and retaliated.

‘’Hi, I am told you posted our conversation on Twitter, can you please delete…I don’t have anything to you until you delete your nonsense.’’

Other Twitter users then put on their detective hats and went in search of the person who was allegedly asking for a bribe.

The number is supposed to belong to a Mr ‘Marete A Metse,’ a vulgar and false name, according to Truecaller. It appears that whoever requested the bribe has been covering their tracks.

Another user on the social media platform stated that a similar situation occurred with relatives at a different university.

‘’And when I asked around about this, it is so deep!!! People are selling kids space and if you don’t have the money, you can forget about studying.’’
