Johannesburg A clerk in the Limpopo education department will appear in the Giyani Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, in connection with the dumping of school textbooks, Limpopo police said on Tuesday.

Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said the 44-year old man was initially expected to appear in court on Tuesday, but would now appear on Wednesday.

He faced a charge of malicious damage to property.

Textbooks for mathematics Grade 8 and numeracy in Sepedi, Grade 3, were found dumped in Giyani last week.

Mulaudzi said the arrest would not affect charges laid by the Democratic Alliance against the department and a contractor.

The DA laid a charge against the department for vandalism and destruction of books in Seshego. Another charge was brought against a service provider who allegedly dumped the textbooks in Giyani.

Schools in the province were without books for the first seven months of the school year.
