Maneb, Ministry of Education in the dark over MSCE exam leakage

Both Malawi National Examination Board (Maneb) and Ministry of Education officials are still in the dark on how the 2020 Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examinations were leaked just a day before President Lazarus Chakwera’s deadline to discover the source of the embarrassing leak.

Deputy Minister of Education Madalitso Kambauwa Wirima and Maneb executive director Gerald Chiunda say investigations on the matter are still going on.

They could not say if they will meet the President’s deadline.

The two were speaking when the deputy minister  visited Maneb offices to appreciate how Standard 8 certificates are awarded.

Chiunda was also non-committal on the possibility of Maneb re-administering MSCE examinations by January as directed by the President, saying he cannot comment on the presidential decree.

President Chakwera has ordered that heads must roll at Maneb over the examinations leakage scandal.

MCP should be very careful with the incorporation of their trusted partner UTM. We are so mindful with them and believe you me many people will be shocked. Malawians tiyeni tipenye.

So afraid the leakage was a deliberate move to create an impression that there are DPP operatives within govt who need to be replaced. They needed a strong excuse to fire DPP guys. You see after the incidence, instead of investigating the problem to find the root cause the whole presidency was just insinuating that he needs to clear the rubble. And the sympathetic propagandist in media even rushed to agree with the president. All this before they could establish the root cause. In other words, they are making uninformed decisions which is very worrisome. Actually instead of their clearing… Read more »

Anyway the biggest threat to MCP is the existence of UTM sharing power with them. More so UTM is closer to DPP interms of progressiveness and ethnic makeup. Which makes most DPP affiliated folks in govt being viewed as UTM sympathizers. MCP had to consolidate power to ensure 2025 is winnable. Fact Check: This is an opinion.

Consult the police, then find the source of the leaking (since the papers were found on whatsapp). Then pin down the source person on how he got the paper(s). Simple as that. Otherwise it seems the MANEB guys know something and they want to hide.

The president’s decree was made in haste and out of anger. We are creating a dictator. Even if we change all the workers at Maneb, what guarantee is there that the exams would not be leaked. I think chakwera is putting himself into issues that will backfire on him. He is busy removing people from their positions and replace them with MCP operatives.

Problems of headless government. Instead of appreciating board’s resolutions, he issues decree against them. Chakwera doesn’t know the process of developing and administrring exams. He is therefore not well placed to disagree with the Board’s plan.

If we had dedicated and trusted people at Maneb this could not have happened.
At Maneb people know who was involved but they are covering each other. Fire them so that others may learn a lesson.
When Jane Ansah messed up the first elections people were saying that the second election could not be done because of time. They were were proved wrong because we have some dedicated people in Malawi like Kachale who did a very commendable job within a short time.
