Another textbook dumping site has been found in Limpopo, the police said on Thursday.
“Members of the community noticed that Grade eight textbooks were scattered under a bridge near Miami Farms in Limpopo and alerted police,” spokesman Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.
It was not immediately clear exactly how many books were found, or who was behind the disposal.
“An internal investigator from the department of education is still checking them, but the recovered textbooks are similar to those that were in the Giyani warehouse.”
This was the fourth case opened for vandalism of state property involving Limpopo school textbooks.
The first was laid at a Giyani police station. The second related to the destruction of textbooks bought with public money in Seshego.
On Tuesday, the DA opened another case after finding around 50 textbooks near a bridge in Tzaneen.
So far, one Limpopo education department clerk had been charged with malicious damage to property. He was also linked to the dumping site discovered earlier this week.
Police investigations continue. – Sapa
