South Africa's textbook scandal

Written by admin   // October 2, 2012   // Comments Off

South Africa’s Basic Education Department is in court once again, accused of failing to deliver textbooks to school children in Limpopo, the country’s northernmost province.

In a country where the papers are full of stories about the poor state of the educational system, the Limpopo textbook scandal has become a byword for government negligence, corruption and lack of service delivery.

The BBC’s Nomsa Maseko visited the province and sent this report to our Focus on Africa TV programme.
