Two teachers have been arrested in Chiradzulu district for allegedly tipping students on Physical Science practical exams in the on-going Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) exams.
Sources have told Nyasa Times that the two teachers, Jayi Missi and Lloyd Kafanikhale of Chigodi Community Day Secondary School in the district were arrested after the community informed Maneb officials and the police about the matter.
Chiradzulu Police officer-in-charge sub-inspector Ralph Makondetsa has confirmed the development.
“If found guilty the two will have to pay a K300,000 fine or serve a ten-year jail sentence,” he said.
News has been awash in social media network sites that this year’s MSCE exams have been leaked and that vendors are selling the papers in some streets in Malawi’s capital Lilongwe and other places.
But both national police spokesperson Rhoda Manjolo and Malawi National Examination Board (Maneb) executive director Roy Hauya while confirming receiving reports from the public on the leakages have insisted that the exams are protected.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
