Maganga: We discovered  through vetting process

Mgadamika has been arrested together with his accomplice Samson Mweso, who actually forged the certificate.

The two were arrested on Tuesday following investigations by Malawi National Examinations Board (Maneb) in conjunction with central region police.

Maneb Public Relations Manager, Simeon Maganga confirmed the arrest.

Maganga said Mgadamika was arrested for “holding” a forged certificate while Mweso is in custody for producing the said forged certificate.

Mweso owns a Photocopying Bureau at Lumbadzi Trading Centre. Meanwhile his computer has since been seized.

”We asked companies to send us their employees’ certificates for vetting, and it was through such process when we discovered that details on Mgadamika’s copy of certificate were not real. We then
instituted investigations,” explained Maganga.

Mgadamika is said to have confessed during police interrogation that the MSCE certificate in his possession was forged.

According to information, it was Mweso who influenced Mgadamika- a holder of Junior Certificate of Education (JCE) certificate- to have a forged certificate.

Mgadamika is reported to have paid K1,500 for the certificate.

The two are expected to be charged with altering a false document contrary to Section 360 as read with Section 356 of the Penal Code.

Meanwhile, Maneb has called on employers and training institutions to always vet with the board certificates of their potential employees and potential students.

”Copies (photocopies) of the certificates could be sent to Maneb in person or through e-mail and we vet free of charge”.

Maganga pointed out that certificate vetting is very important as it allows only deserving candidates to secure places for either employment or school/training thereby contributing positively to
national development.

Go to immigration where you will find these so called expats getting permit with fake certificate and working as security officers.

Malawi Electoral Commission should also engage Maneb do the vetting process once aspirants in national elections have submitted their nomination papers. There had been strong rumours in Zomba Chisi Constituency of some either MPs or aspirants using certificates of their relatives. MEC should also bring back the Proficiency Test – the written one as well as the introducing the oral one. Otherwise what we observe and hear on our media channels leave a lot to be desired. What kind of Members of Parliament do we choose to represent people if they cannot take part in the deliberations in the National… Read more »
