Breaking news: reprieve for o Level students

High Court judge Justice Loice Matanda-Moyo has overturned Primary and Secondary Education Minister Paul Mavima’s move to order a retake of the English paper two examinations and ordered the Zimbabwe School Examination Council (Zimsec) to just use the paper 1 results instead.



  1. Will this help the students? Hope they will be satisfied and will our system be regarded as credible internationally?

    The judge’s decision is nether good nor bad, its a decision in a mad house in which a fool calls a nut, “You are deranged” yet they all need medication or psychotherapy to normalise the abnormal. The Government and Zimsec have both faltered but they now need to quietly resolve their problem from without the public domain. This is how I think you could solve this to a lesser degree of inaccuracy: You have a vibrant CIO which can identify and assess the extend and proliferation of this cheating based on follow up of the messages. Look into the performance of these bad apples and their surrounding environment, you may even request for school performance reports for the suspected candidates. Make your own judgements finally and please leave the public out of it. Leave everyone else out of this equation although you must endeavour to be fair. Then finally fire all ZIMSEC employees who have access to the these papers. Finally, to the Ministry I want to know if this is the only paper that leaked, honestly. As for the Minister, I am sorry for the poor judgement you made and in future you can consult your perm-sec and the headmasters in such issues and let other people be the bearer of such bad news and you be the peace broker, you have tarnished the image of my uncle’s government but I forgive you.
