Richard Gurudza of Vision Academy and two students at the same college, Wellington Noruwana and Enock Zamani, were jointly charged of contravening Section 35 (e) of the Zimbabwe School Examination Council Act when they appeared before magistrate Aniah Ndiraya.

State counsel Brian Goto told the court that on November 13 and at Sakubva Commercial College, the suspects acted in common purpose by stealing a Zimsec Geography Paper Two (2248/14) “O” Level examination paper.

They had agreed to assist Zamani who was sitting for that paper ,thereby prejudicing Zimsec.
Gurudza allegedly prepared the answers and gave them to Noruwana to pass on to Zamani who writing the paper at Zamba Primary School.

At around 10am, Noruwana allegedly called Zamani on his mobile phone and asked him to leave the examination room to collect the prepared answer sheet outside.

Zamani pleaded with the invigilator to accompany him to the toilet.

The invigilator, Acquillinah Chinhara, accompanied him and he went into the urinary section alone where he was given the script by Noruwana in the toilet as per arrangement.

Zamani then left his own answer script in the toilet and returned to the examination room.

However, after he had produced the script that he was given outside, the invigilator noticed that he had an answer script which was different with those provided in the examination room.

He was then quizzed over the discrepancy and spilled the beans, leading to the recovery of the original script from the toilet.

The school authorities then reported the matter to police, leading to the three’s arrest.
They were granted $20 bail and remanded to January 6 next year.

    1. GOOD ADVICE: do something for yourself, for your family. Don’t waste your time talking about these already rich African politicians while you are poor. Other people are enjoying their lives with money without even paying attention to these dirty politicians.

    I am baffled. How can someone sitting for an exam be called on a mobile phone? Please Zimsec do something otherwise the review of the curriculum will not help anything.

  5. Zimsec is just rubbish and its exams must be boycotted

  6. The student was phoned while writing an exam. So this means he entered the exam room while his phone was on. MaTeacher itai maSerious. Musagarira basa.

  8. this is not a question of the quality of the exam but rather the nature of the people entrusted to ensure its credibility. the same was happening during the cambridge era under our nose and could still happen now as the process remains the same.

  11. Maybe i did not get the writer crrectly but it seems there was no exam leak here. What happened, according to the story, is that while the candidate was writing ,the other person went and stole the question paper from a diferent centre then prepared anwsers for the candidate.However we may want answers as to how he got the question paper when the law says the ? papers should be locked away for 24 hrs before released to the public.We also demand to know how the candidate manage to answer his phone whilist in the exam room.Otherwise somebody slept on the job here and you cant totally blame it on ZIMSEC.

  12. in this case the problem is not with Zimsec because the paper did not leak. problem iri pama subject teachers vanotevera ku exam room kunoona bepa riri kunyoreswa vana. i think the subject teachers should not be allowed to see the paper until rapera kunyorwa.
    2. invigilators- where were you mwana achidaira phone. it’s either there was a limited number f invigillators or they were sufficient but vaitokurukura havo nyaya vachitadza kuita basa. + invigillators should not use whatsapp panguva ye exam please coz munozovarairwawo imi.
