Parliament - The ANC continued to face attack from opposition parties over its handling of the Eskom crisis, lack of jobs and poor education system.
But ANC members have defended the track record of the government in the last 25 years.
National Council of Provinces (NCOP) Chief Whip Seiso Mohai and Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga told MPs, during the debate on the State of the Nation Address on Wednesday, they were on track and improving the economy.
Geordin Hill-Lewis of the DA said the country was facing a crisis in all fronts because the government was not capable of addressing challenges.
He said the ANC had destroyed the Scorpions and de-fanged the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).
