More than 5000 textbooks, from grades zero to nine for various subjects, were found dumped in Majeje on Tuesday.

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

Zuma was studying the report and urged the task team to continue and conclude its work. He would comment on the report once the matter had been concluded. - Sapa
