Unfair to Blame Masemola for Textbook Saga

Masemola says it is unfair to blame the Limpopo textbook saga on him

Limpopo's education MEC Dickson Masemola, says it is ‘unfair’ that he is being blamed for the Limpopo textbook saga.

Masemola states that it's ‘very unfair’ because people cannot take the whole responsibility of the education challenge and place it on him. He says he is confused by calls for his resignation as he was stripped of his powers when the province was placed under administration.

He was responding to a report by University of the Witwatersrand professor, Mary Metcalfe, which found that not all Limpopo schools had received their books by the June 27 deadline, despite the department saying 98 percent of learning material had been delivered.
