Why arresting students? They received papers from maneb culprit, why don’t you find the source of leakage?

Students are just recipient of the leaked exams. Unless, if they broke into the store room and walk away with papers of which this is not the case. There must be a source, the master minder of all this nonsense. Police should not rush arresting innocent students

Why is Malawi fond of dealing with the fruits and not the roots??? Shall we really progress and succeed as a nation? I don’t see any need of arresting the students instead of arresting the officials who leaked out the exams. Is this the change we were looking for? None can control what comes into a phone through social media and then it would mean a lot of us would be arrested.

Just release those students nanu inu. Carry out a thorough investigation and then arrest he who leaked the exams. Police, please wake up. I feel now Malawi needs an independent investigative department like FBI, The Hawks, Scotland Yard etc. Why arresting students?? school me please.

U have a point, why arrest a student who was not supposed to seee the exam paper b4 exam day. I just imagined that if i was sitting for these exams and happened to know that other pplse have the leaked papers and i happened to stamble on the paper, what wud i have done. Surely grab the opportunity so as to be fairly assessed along with the others on handwriting only.
