In particular, she is addressing schools with no sanitation, water and electricity at all. She told the briefing that 7 of the 9 provinces have achieved their three year target of being in line with the prescribed norms and standards. She singled out the Eastern Cape and Limpopo as having the biggest problems.

Motshekga said an arrest over the leaked maths paper is imminent. The department is no longer working with the Hawks but have taken on a private investigator.
