Rights group, SECTION27, says there is still some schools without textbooks in Limpopo.
SECTION27 spokesperson, Nikki Stein, says that, “What worries us is also the fact that we have been flooded with phone calls this morning from schools to report textbooks shortages.”
Stein states that the callers asked SECTION27 not to give their names to the Department of Education because they have been intimidated, threatened and told that if they do report their textbook shortages, disciplinary steps may be taken against them.
The comments come after a Limpopo Education Department official, Tsakani Kubayi, who was arrested last year following the discovery of about 700 textbooks dumped on the banks of Nsami Dam in Giyani, appeared at the Giyani Regional Court.
