The union is calling for a forensic investigation into the college. 

The union's KZN Secretary Ayanda Zulu says the funds were declared missing as a result of an audit.

"The auditors were doing auditing there was an identification of missing funds of about R1.8 million which was allocated for students that are living with disabilities".

On Monday, a burglary at the institution saw two laptops, a television, decoder camera being stolen.

Nehawu alleges that the laptops stolen contain information relating to the alleged missing funds.

The college says this isn't true.

Students with disabilities have been registered without any problems but Nehawu insists something fishy is going on.
