WHAT was notable about Oscar Mabuyane's attack on Mamphela Ramphele ("'Bantu education was better'", September 17) was that he made no attempt to refute her arguments concerning education, confining himself to a personal attack on Ramphele. This was not surprising considering the utter failure of the ANC education department in the Eastern Cape.
What is surprising is that the ANC, which cannot but be aware of its complete failure at the municipal and provincial levels in this province, dares to behave as if its record was unimpeachable. Talk of hypocrisy!
