5 000+ dumped textbooks found in Limpopo

2012-08-07 07:15

Johannesburg - More than 5000 textbooks were found dumped in Majeje, in the Phalaborwa region, Limpopo police said on Tuesday.

Spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Ronel Otto said the books were dumped in an open veld on Monday morning and were in a good condition.

"The between 5 000 to 6 000 books range from Grade 0 to Grade 9 for various subjects," Otto said.

"Police along with the education department will launch investigations in order to determine where the books came from and where they were supposed to go."

Some grades in Limpopo received textbooks seven months after the school year started, while others were still waiting. Earlier in the year, lobby group Section27 obtained a court order for textbooks to be delivered to Limpopo by June 15.

In a meeting between Section27 and the department on June 21, a revised date of June 27 was set. The textbooks were finally delivered on the revised date.

On Monday, President Jacob Zuma received a preliminary report from a presidential task team that investigated the late delivery of textbooks in Limpopo.

Zuma is studying the report and urged the task team to continue and conclude its work. He said he would pronounce on the report once the matter has been concluded.

Otto said some of the books were still in their boxes and all the books were taken to the police station for safekeeping.

No criminal case had been opened, she said.

    I suppose this will also be blamed on apartheid....

      A witness reported that he saw Hendrik Verwoerd himself dump the books!!! The government decided to reward him with a farm as it validates their claims...

      @Poloyatonki - Hahaha have you seen how your friends in the ANC live you must either be retarded or blind

      steve.ritchie.739 - 2012-08-07 09:47

      @ Poloydonkey. Trolling around again are we?? I just wonder if there is sand deep enough to bury your very big stupid head in. Movie Stars??? Charlize Theron will be very angry with you.

      dekkeranton - 2012-08-07 10:22

      Poloyatonki, don’t you realise this creature lead by Jakob Zuma, Gwede Mantashe and Baleka Mbete is most definitely not the ANC of Albert Luthuli, Oliver Thambo and Nelson Mandela. From a truly inclusive, proudly non-racial liberation movement, it very rapidly, in less than one generation, degenerated into a self-enriching, dictatorial, private club. They don’t give a damn about the history of this country or the future of our children. They only care about how much they can score, in the shortest period of time possible. “What is in it for me” should be the new ANC’s motto. This is just the liberation movement in name and colour, but not in soul and action. Wake up from your dream world!

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-08-07 10:29

      It's that damn agent Verwoed again.

      firstseed.mbeva.9 - 2012-08-07 12:38

      Of course Verwoerd knows about it,hahaahaha!

      No Verwoerd.

      mihaip007 - 2012-08-07 14:08

      can SOMEONE explain this textbook dumping to me? I don't get it! If they have the books, why not "DUMP" them AT THE SCHOOLS? FFS - how DOF can you be? I mean if they are trying to cover up something either burn them so no one can find them, OR do the sensible thing and ANONYMOUSLY DUMP THEM AT THE SCHOOLS THAT NEED THEM!

      henry.hattingh - 2012-08-07 14:52

      I dont have anything good to say about the apartheid government, but at least they looked after their own people. How absolutely chocking is this ????? Would this make the anc worse than apartheid then ??

      francois.leroux.779 - 2012-08-07 14:54

      A Dekkeranton, No, quite frankly it is simply the ANC showing its true colors all of a sudden. Read the interesting article at http://www.politicsweb.co.za/politicsweb/view/politicsweb/en/page72308?oid=317123&sn=Marketingweb+detail&pid=90389 and you will realize it has all the time been simply a self-enrichment scheme from way back.

      busani.mabunda - 2012-08-07 17:43

      ANC must kiss my ass. Bring the DA and good governance!!!!!

      Voiceinthedesert.co.za - 2012-08-07 22:08

      the apartheid government dumped those books there. bwahahahahahhaahhaha f@#$cken bastards

      On Monday, President Jacob Zuma received a preliminary report from a presidential task team that investigated the late delivery of textbooks in Limpopo. A preliminary report...how many more reports before they know what the f**k is going on? Bunch of wankres! And Zuma is "studying the report" are not the school kids supposed to be studying... Crikey...time to get my other passport sorted out, as my children are definitley not going to any school in SA, unless private.

  • michael.kleber.376 - 2012-08-07 07:26

    Can only be 1 of 2 reasons why these books were dumped 1)The limpopo education dept lied when they said they had not received texts books and were dumping them to cover up their lie or 2) They ordered more texts books but had texts books already but kickbacks were received if orders were placed even if they did not need more books

      margyhp - 2012-08-07 07:39

      I agree with 1) about the Dept lying about delivering text books but I also believe that Limpopo (Malema country) is doing everything in its power to keep South Africans from bettering their education. Uneducated people are easier to convince who to vote for

      Marius Bloemhof - 2012-08-07 07:56

      You have not considered the 3rd and mosy likely the applicable option. National government used some shady company (from they al receive kickbacks) to procure and deliver textbooks. Delivery cost money, so they dump the texybooks an make more profit. Simple Local education department might have ordered it, but since Limpopo is under administration, national government is responsible - it was simply never delivered, for obvious reasons. It all comes back to one person here - Motsega

      Raymond - 2012-08-07 08:01

      Or it is just to keep the masses uneducated, for obvious reasons.

      J.Stephen.Whiteley - 2012-08-07 08:13

      I see no third reason, Michael, and tend to agree with 1). The Lowvelder of 3 August reports that "the executive director" of EduSolutions, Mr. Mateli Mpuntsha, denied that his firm's contract with (Province) was cancelled "and the matter is currently before the courts." He was also reported as stating the "contract in Limpopo was cancelled ostensibly following a legal opinion by advocate Mr. Pat Ellis." From this seeming contradiction, I assume Province attempted to cancel, and daren't or didn't appoint another carrier. Who actually did the dumping is irrelevant to Province's responsibility.

      scouter.fourone - 2012-08-07 08:42

      There is a third possibility Michael - the successful 'delivery' bidder saw no need to waste unnecessary expenditure on actually fulfilling the contract.

      J.Stephen.Whiteley - 2012-08-07 08:53

      But it would be as easy to deliver to the schools as to the river, unless Government failed to supply the school addresses

      connie.heuer2 - 2012-08-07 08:58

      I believe you have hit the nail right on th head here!

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-08-07 10:35

      Well we can be sure (Ha Ha), they will leave no stone unturned. Meaning, they will be appointing Task Teams, holding enquiries, meetings, parties, etc from now until the cows come home, with huge expense of course. And at the end of it, there will be a fall person and a massive cover up, again.

      @Andile, the article is written in English, just stating the obvious.

  • J.Stephen.Whiteley - 2012-08-07 07:42

    I have yet to hear the promise of a year-end pass mark to the unfortunate children or an unreserved apology to the school heads, teachers and parents.

      dekkeranton - 2012-08-07 09:59

      I have yet to hear any explanation from SADTU. Their members are the teachers standing in the classrooms without books, desks, toilets, running water, electricity or windows. Why didn’t the teachers speak out long ago when they realised where this debacle is leading to? Why are they so quite about the entire affair? Is it because COSATU, their umbrella organisation is in bed with the ANC? So, we play politics while our children are suffering!

  • marais.adriaan - 2012-08-07 07:55

    The Americans have just put a rocket on Mars. The cANCer can't even deliver textbooks to Limpopo. Pathetic...

  • UNITY - 2012-08-07 07:58

    Does this not sound like the ANC is deliberately , leading the people of limpopo to a state of illiteracy...so that all they will ever know is how to make a cross on a sheet of paper...the current state of affairs, and denial poor service delivery is dispicable! Building a shrine called zumaville takes more precedence over the youth

  • hudayfah.newman - 2012-08-07 07:58

    Poor kids. Without education your future will be dogged with bad decisions. Its a shame really

  • jasper.booysen - 2012-08-07 08:01

    So, for all these years we all have been brainwashed that a certain population group in South Africa wanted to keep the majority of South Africans in the dark by withhoulding quality/proper education from them. What is happening now - cleary one can come to inter alia a conclusion that a significant segment of the majority are not realy interested in their own education because, amongst other things, the trend is that "it is my right" to get this and that without working for it!

  • gungets.tuft - 2012-08-07 08:05

    As said by Jonathan Jansen in a recent column. "There are 26000 shebeens in South Africa," mused a friend the other day, "and every week a major breweries company successfully delivers crates of liquor to every one of them." He continues: "There are also 26000 schools in this country, and yet we cannot deliver textbooks to all of them. We do not have a skills crisis." Jansen is quite right. What we have is the absence of a will to succeed. If there was ever evidence that Ubuntu has failed, this is it. The people in charge SIMPLY DO NOT CARE!!!!!

  • provence.poppies - 2012-08-07 08:08

    I love it. Please educate the ANC rubbish.

  • vuyo.ntsinde.7 - 2012-08-07 08:23

    Why is it that every year the government must supply new textbooks to schools . A textbook should be used for at least 5 years and if it is lost the pupil should pay . The country cannot afford to spend millions on the same textbooks every year.

      jean.tredoux.5 - 2012-08-07 08:42

      Agreed, will teach responsibility as well but since it is not done this way I gov must take responsibility and I believe this disgusting act is enough to put a person in jail!!! Shocking that our education isn't seen as a essential service!!!

      wenzil.farmer - 2012-08-07 08:58

      So instead of delivering the textbooks they should dump it because money cant be wasted?Really?I mean come now,Really???

      deon.louw.7505 - 2012-08-07 09:04

      The gravy train does not make money on 2nd hand books, that is why it is done.

      andile.a.mchunu - 2012-08-07 10:26

      Who changed the system anyway? i mean thats how we rolled back in the days,an individual was responsible for a textbook and held on it like the dear bible until the end of the year, i smell a rat called corruption

      gungets.tuft - 2012-08-07 10:40

      It is an old money making stunt. The people who write the textbooks are the teachers, or people higher up in the education chain, and they also set the curriculum. No change, no money, so they change. When I was at university (manY!!) years ago all the textbooks were written by our OWN lecturers. They made small changes every year, we had to spend a fortune buy the new books. Sad waste of money.

      galmzala - 2012-08-07 10:49

      Eish Umkhwetha that was my question, what happpened to last year or two years back books, I guess every time when there is a new minister of education they change the curriculum, I think they dont have a clue/vision about the ducation and everything except fighting for the positions

  • larry.piggott1 - 2012-08-07 08:24

    The ANC does not want the poor to get an education, because an educated person would think very hard about voting for them.

  • phumi.ntlabati - 2012-08-07 08:24

    I think there is far more sinister plot to undermine and discredit this Zuma lead government by those with narrow political agendas in Limpopo at the expense of African children! It does not matter what grievance you have but we will never sympathise with those who would sacrifice our very own for their selfish personal vengeance. We need to bring in the Hawks into this saga to investigate a case of sabotage and high treason. High in my list I would start by investigating this NGO called Section 27 and be forced to reveal its funders!

      william.letsong.5 - 2012-08-07 08:48

      Julius Malema should be high on the list. If you have read the article on here before this one, Malema: Expelled child wants ANC re-entry: he told his supporters that they would fight from the outside to make sure that Zuma was not re-elected in December at the ANC's national conference to be held in Mangaung.\ He Malema is fighting his political battles at the expense of African children.

      deon.louw.7505 - 2012-08-07 09:06

      This is the ANC's way, shoot / blame the messanger. If Section 27 did not speak up we would not have known of the blunders of the Education dep.

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-08-07 10:41

      Once again, you reveal your absolute stupidity. If you ever get the feeling you've missed something, trust it!

      galmzala - 2012-08-07 10:53

      while they are doing ongoing investigation, will vote for another party, that has nothing to do with ANC, not even former ANC member cause they are from the same rot

      dekkeranton - 2012-08-07 12:06

      Phumi.ntlabati, are you completely insane? Of cause it is sabotage, in fact I will also call it treason, but it is committed by this Zuma lead government, and Zuma is too much of a “slapgat” president to do something about his own cadres committing this treason! Angie Motshekga, Bobby Soobrayan, Cassel Mathale and Dickson Masemola should have been fired long ago, and investigated by the serious commercial crimes unit of the SAPS. The NGO’s and specifically Section27 are at least trying to get some form of education to the children. You and your ilk that slavishly follow a completely corrupt and incompetent bunch of lying politicians are responsible for denying the children of this country an education!

      david.mlambo.77 - 2012-08-08 13:13

      Zuma and the ANC dont need anyone to discredit there image, they can do it perfectly with no help from outsiders. They have not made a single decision that has benefited the nation but themselves and families. Malema may expose these benefactor,s but note he is equally guilty and should be arrested.\r\nThe GVT needs transformation from these traitors

  • veritas.odium.paret - 2012-08-07 08:25

    Let's be honest here is anything at all going to be done about this.Last month i helped a 78 year old pensioner get to SARS in Durban on arriving at SARS was very impressed with the service they gave him very fast and efficient.He received a notification from SARS that he owed R13000.00 the Lady who served his was very helpfull and entered all his data on her computer system and stated he did not earn over a R100000k a year so all should be alright. Lo and behold. Yesterday he received a reply not one envelope but 5 letters all the same document stating he must still pay.Here is a 77 year old man who after deductions has about R2000 left for food and other essential items now has to find this large amount of cash to pay the Tax Man.It looks like this government is collecting cash from all to cover their mistakes and corruption. If only all their departments worked so swiftly in their responses and actions. 6000 books at roughly R70.00 per book R420 000.00 thrown away and they what Pensioners life long hard earned cash.Shame on you and the people who vote for you.

  • william.letsong.5 - 2012-08-07 08:30

    Shame those Limpopo school kids will all end up like the master of idiots, Julius Malema. I won't be surprise if he is behind all these dumpings to maintain an idiotic support base in Limpopo or maybe just so that members can get rid of Zuma at Mangaung so that he can be welcomed back into the ANC. Earlier article on news24 - Malema: Expelled child wants ANC re-entry: \Malema told his supporters they would fight from the outside to make sure that Zuma was not re-elected in December at the ANC's national conference to be held in Mangaung.\ Malema must be investigated.

    THIS IS SIMPLE: Please tell us, who is printing the books? 2. Who is responsible for the delivery of the books? 3. Who collected the batch of books, because someone signed for their collection? 4. Arrest their ass, and find out WHY they are not delivering to the schools and instead dumping the books? 5. This is CLEAR SABOTAGE of the Educational system, by PEOPLE who will benefit from this CRISES. This is beyond ineptitude but points towards sabotage, the printers will benefit from new orders..the couriers will benefit from additional loads...I could have solved this in a few days..now we have presidential task teams..to investigate this nonsense taking months to compile reports..

  • dekkeranton - 2012-08-07 09:21

    This is absolutely disgraceful! Originally I thought it was just an oversight, but now we realise that no one can be that incompetent. This is a deliberate action to lie and deceive the people of this country. There must be some shenanigans behind the scenes, and someone, somewhere is getting very rich while innocent children are suffering. How can Angie Motshekga sleep at night? Why is she still in her job? Why is our tax money we still paying the salaries of Bobby Soobrayan, Cassel Mathale and Dickson Masemola? Shouldn’t these incompetent idiots have been fired long time ago? Why have we not yet seen the arrest of the entire board of EduSolutions? They are the ones that became multi-millionaires out of this debacle! Here are the names of the board of EduSolutions, Shaun Battlemann, Moosa Ntimba, Prof. (Dr.) Aruna Broota, Dr. Jitender Nagpal, Ms. Usha Albuquerque , Ms. Ritu Dhingra, M. Nazir, Mr. Ramnik Sandhu , Ms. Veena Raizada, Ms. Astha Bajaj, Mrs. Chavi Gupta, Ms. Astha Ahluwalia, Mr. Hitankshi Thukral, Ms. Khushboo Thakur and Ms. Sana Anjum.

  • Nyiks11 - 2012-08-07 09:29

  • patrick.ooro - 2012-08-07 09:37

    Sad as it is, SA is following the legacy of many other African countries where leaders stay in power by promoting ignorance of the people. In this case it is sad as the kids with no books are not of voting age yet, and by the time they are, they will have realized that they were let down by a corrupt government and this will influence their vote. The time is coming!!!!!!

    Love this article - 'Zuma will PRONOUNCE on the report' once concluded. I take it he is going to Pontificate on this report. He gets more elevated by the day. If he had any backbone he would fire all the department of education from the royal minister downwards and find out why on earth the principals never followed up on their books. And if they didn't, fire them too. That should keep the CCMA busy for a while

    its just way that the ANC party keeps there own youth stupid, cause with starting to actually learn and use common sense they will b able to see through all the Bull that is fed to them!

  • xolani.seme.9 - 2012-08-07 17:17

    I've said it before. This is just poor politics @ its broke worst level. Sacrificing the youth for the sake of branding the current administration as failures by destroying the future. This becoming clear every time a pile of dumped books is discovered in Limpompo! The hatred of the administration has seen cheap and sick tactics being used with wrong collateral on the way! These are really sad moments. Greed, power mongers, and politicians lacking ideologies will never prevail

    And the self same blacks have the unbelievable audacity to ever mention the so called disadvantage of Bantu Education. Their great contribution to the education of the masses is to dump thousands of text books, and burn schools and destroy or steal any hi tech or computer technical aids bought with tax payer’s money. When they next complain about how oppressed they were, it must just fall on deaf ears.

    Where are the ANC revolutioners who fought for better education for all. It is now that they should be protesting on behalf of the disadvantaged kids
