The current Mayco Member for Water and Waste at the City of Cape Town Xanthea Limberg, is the latest DA member to have her educational history scrutinized.
A CV seen by the Weekend Argus states that Limberg has a degree in Politics and Public Policy Administration from the University of Cape Town and a BA Degree in Policy Studies from Unisa.
The CV was reportedly submitted to the party’s Provincial Executive Committee in January for her nomination as an executive member.
The publication however revealed that Limberg only has certificates from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and UCT, not a degree as stated on the submitted CV.
When asked about the CV Limberg said that she is in her final year and will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Policy Studies this year .
“I’m currently in the process of applying for Post Grad in Policy Development at Wits. But I have other certificates from CPUT and UCT as well,” she added.
Limberg also indicated that she has accurately reflected the status of her degree on her CV which is in the possession of the the DA .
“(I am) not sure what the issue is. In submitting the CV to the PEC, the CV is titled abbreviated/summarized and I indicated that if anything on my CV needs to be verified/ queried that I can submit my full detailed CV. I never received a query for my full CV to be submitted to the PEC, and the purpose of requesting my CV was to be co-opted onto the Provincial executive committee.”
