Johannesburg - The Democratic Alliance is challenging the ANC to match its record of textbook delivery, Parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said on Wednesday.

"When you compare the DA and ANC's performance in educating our children, it is obvious which party cares more about the future of country," Mazibuko said in a speech prepared for delivery in Limpopo.

"Next year, let no child go without the textbooks they need to make a success of their studies."

She was referring to the textbook delivery saga in Limpopo.

Mazibuko was speaking at a DA Jobs Campaign rally in Polokwane on Wednesday.

She said if the ANC wanted to improve the quality of basic education it would take up the DA's five point challenge.

This challenge was making sure there was a textbook for every child for every core subject in their grade, deliver all textbooks before the school year starts and eliminate corruption in the procurement of textbooks. The ANC also needed to order the right textbooks for the right pupils and match the DA's textbook funding allocation.

"In the Western Cape, an additional R466m has been budgeted over the next four years for textbooks," said Mazibuko.

"We call on all ANC-governed provinces to rise to our challenge and match the DA's textbook delivery record."
