The KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Government is seeking legal opinion on the steps that should be taken against the company responsible for the non-delivery of food items to schools across the province.
This follows the appointment of one service provider by way of a formal Bid process, to handle the School Nutrition Programme.
The government says during the week prior to schools re-opening after the Easter Holiday, the company gave the assurance that the plan was on track to provide all food items to schools in time.
However, it says when schools opened for the second term it was discovered that the company had failed to honour the terms of the contract, which led to thousands of school children going hungry whilst in school.
Spokesperson for the premier, Gugu Sisilana Nomusa Dube Ncube says the Department of Education is seeking legal opinion on the matter and has instituted an investigation.
