South African Student Receives $1 Million From Financial Aid

A South African student’s mishap with financial aid went viral. Sibongile Mani is making national headlines for blowing $60 K that was accidentally given to her in a $1 million financial aid payout.

According to The New York Daily News, Mani’s usual $100 stipend for food and books turned out to be $1 million in an accidental transaction this past June.

Mani, 27, then reportedly went on a $60,000 shopping spree for iPhones for her friends and designer outfits before a few of her snitching azz classmates raised suspicion.

“She bought an iPhone 7 and clothes for herself and each of her friends,” one student reportedly told South Africa’s TheHeraldLive. “She suddenly appeared at lectures wearing designer clothes and she pimped up her crew of friends.”

Sibongile, who is now possibly facing legal action, is being defiant on Twitter.
