Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi on Friday used the achievements of the province's matric pupils as an opportunity to criticise One SA Movement leader Mmusi Maimane.

Lesufi said the department was proud that it had “defended” pupils' careers. While Gauteng obtained a 82.8% pass rate in these exams, this was a drop from the 83.8% obtained last year.Gauteng had127,523 matriculants who wrote the exams, of which 105,526 passed.

The province's head of department, Edward Mosuwe, said this achievement did not come without hurdles. Mosuwe said service delivery protests that kept some pupils from Gauteng's eastern regions out of school for at least four weeks in the last school term had contributed to a drop in the 2021 matric performance.
