Limpopo police have denied re-arresting an education clerk who appeared in the Giyani Magistrate's Court on Wednesday morning over the dumping of textbooks.

“He has not been re-arrested,” said Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.

SABC radio reported on Wednesday that Glen Kubayi, 44, was re-arrested shortly after he was released on R2 000 bail.

Mulaudzi said: “What is happening is that the police are still continuing their investigation into the case, and to link the case to other suspects.”

Kubayi faces a charge of malicious damage to property, with his case postponed to August 3.

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

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.

Mulaudzi said on Tuesday the man's arrest would not affect the charges laid by the DA.

After news of the dumping emerged, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga called for the culprits to be arrested.

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