Standerton - A court case against six Mpumalanga teachers accused of stealing from their school's feeding scheme did not go ahead on Tuesday, police said.
The case was expected to take place in the Standerton Magistrate's Court.
Colonel Leonard Hlathi said the senior prosecutor decided to have the case further investigated before a decision was made on whether to prosecute.
The teachers, from Gugulabasha Primary School in Sakhile, near Standerton, were arrested at the school on November 27.
Police found groceries meant for the school's feeding scheme in their cars.
Hlathi said the school was a non-fee school because the parents of most of the children were unemployed.
