Port Elizabeth - The ANC came in for a hammering during an election debate at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday night.
Opposition political parties including the EFF, UDM, and the DA seemed to close ranks, launching a scathing attacks on the ANC.
The ruling party was accused of having failed the Nelson Mandela Bay metro's residents through poor service delivery.
The ANC was represented by councillor Rory Riordan, the UDM by mayoral candidate Mongameli Bobani, the DA by Ngqura Constituency leader and MP Nqaba Bhanga, and the EFF by national chairman Dali Mpofu.
The opposition leaders laid all the social ills dogging the metro, including corruption, unemployment, poor education, maladministration, squarely at the ANC's door.
