Maxwell Indopwana replied:

"Africans are the most educated people in the world, but the question that needs answers what as our education done to our benefit?. Our universities have produced graduates who only know theory, not practical; we have our engineers who fail to supervise roads, yet every time they spend drinking tea or coffee in their offices. What can we celebrate about our education when we call the Chinese to come and build our drainages and roads. Africa must wake up from slumber; otherwise, there is nothing to celebrate about our education system."
