The Democratic Alliance has called on Basic
Education Minister, Angie Motshekga, to implement an urgent independent inquiry
into the reasons for the non-delivery of textbooks, as well as a full list of
recommendations as to what measures should be put in place to correct this as
soon as possible.
The inquiry’s investigation must provide
why were textbooks not delivered on time.
DA MP on Education Annette Lovemore said
during 2013 on numerous occasions Minister Angie Motshekga made a promise to
the nation that in 2014 every single learner in South Africa would have her/his
own textbooks for every single subject delivered on time.
Lovemore added that unfortunately that
promise has proven to be false, there are thousands of learners in Limpopo, the Northern Cape and North West who are still without the textbooks.
