The South African Human Rights Commission has released the report of its investigation into the textbook saga that made headlines two years ago. Poor budget management, heavy reliance on private service providers, as well as inadequate procurement management services, are just some of the issues that led to the delays or non-delivery of textbooks in Limpopo and other provinces in 2012. The commission found that most of the departments did not have an accurate record of the number of schools in their province, the medium of instruction or the number of learners in each school.
