National police spokesperson James Kadadzera said Chiunda who was arrested  alongside Ishmael Faki, chief examination development officer, Joseph Chilombe, chief examination officer, and Owen Kutho, head of security have been charged for contravening Maneb Act.

Maneb Act (1987) mandates the board to take charge of the process if localising the development and administration of national examinations.

Kadadzera said the four, who are currently being held at Zomba Police Station, have been charged for  allegedly failing to exercise due care in relation to the safety of national examination materials and that they failed to take reasonable steps for the security of national examination materials in accordance with the Maneb Act.

“Their arrests follows findings of police investigations into the matter,” said Kadadzera.

He  said the four twill appear in court for prosecution.

Chakwera please behave like a Pastor and Chilima you are always stubborn. You two guys have a lot of vengeance but God is teaching you today that “Vengeance is not yours” if you try to go against God, He will punish you badly. You know it from your hearts that there are people you planted in MANEB to demolish Chiunda and now that you are successful with that, you have been able to fire him. As if that is not enough, you are putting him in jail so that he can rot forgetting that Chiunda is a responsible man for… Read more »

We were there when the late Dumbo Lemani, Sam Mpasu and others suffered at the hands of late Bingu and his DPP yet these were the same people that assisted Bingu to become president.What is so special with Chiunda?

Hmm. Are they claiming that the Executive Director was involved in peddling “likasa”? That’s extraordinary, to say the least. I find it extremely hard to believe this can be the case. Maybe deep down he was a cadet and felt duty bound to leak the exams so as to embarrass the new regime? That would be very foolish!

Anyways, the police better have a strong case, else achita sembwe.

Kumeneku nde kusowa mulandu woti awaimbe mabwanawa, kuvomereza kuti alephera kumpedza munthu amene anatulutsa mayeso. Kumanga anthu kuti zingooneka kuti ena akugwira ntchito basi.

Mayeso akamalembedwa, amasungidwa malo ambiri osiyana siyana kumene mphamvu (authority) ya mabwana a ku maneb sifikilako kweni kweni. Mulandu uwu uwonongetsa ndalama zina za boma zochuluka, kuwonjezera pa zimene zaonongeka kale.

You are being very very unfair to these MANEB officials. Do You really think Chiunda et al can choose to leak their own exams? Really? I can tell you that these exams were leaked by a Nonse Alliance sympathiser who wanted Chiunda out of MANEB for being mistaken as a DPP cadet. Please release these MANEB officers IMMEDIATELY!!!.

I think a system failure can be attributed to the head of the system but not that they r responsible for whole failure. They had police escort and security why not pick Police IG too. Kikikiki

After these people were suspended, there was another leak. Did they come from suspension to administer the second leak? Why don’t you just dismiss the whole board and revert to the old way of getting exams set in UK though expensive through this route?
