Malawians call for Maneb head, retake of exams over leakage

Malawians have taken up in social media platforms to express displeasure over the massive Malawi School Certificate of Examination (MSCE) examination question papers leakage, calling for the firing of Malawi National Examination Board (Maneb) executive director.

Dr Steve Sharra: Appoint independent team of investigators to probe the matter

Some of the question papers people were sharing on Whatsapp social media platforms before the students wrote include History and English language.

Most Malawians are very angry with Maneb, especially with its casual approach on the matter as the state exam body spokesperson Mayamiko Chiwaya said the leakage will not affect the outcome of the results.

Social media influencer Onjezani Kenani wrote on his Facebook wall: “Both the executive director of Maneb and the Minister of Education must resign over this exam leakage scandal. It’s high time someone took responsibility.”

Others said Maneb should suspend the examination writing which is in progress now and reexamine the leaked papers.

Maneb executive director Gerald Chiunda said an investigation has been instituted and the board’s position on the matter will be known after the outcome of the probe on the matter.

But education expert Steve Sharra said the government should appoint an independent team of investigators to probe the matter rather than leaving it to Maneb investigating itself.

Chiunda akunama. He just wants to keep his job. He is a cadet. He must be held accountable for the mess. There is need for forensic investigation to trace all the web links used for the leakage.

Chiunda mchewa akhala bwanji cadet nanunso? Akanakhala cadet they would have fired him already, ana anjoka inu. The only reason why they haven’t fired him is because he is chewa.

Gerald Chiunda is a cadet and has played a role to frustrate the new government. That’s the problem of bringing politics in the civil service. There’s lack of professionalism. These cadets must be removed. Chilima said that njoka saweta yet akuweta njoka ku Maneb, MBC, Admarc, Nocma, etc. Lero zayambikatu.
