  5. Thats a good verdict..ndapasa

  6. Tough luck hey paper 2 boosts the overall mark manje kana zvaazvepaper 1 only haa majority will fail unless they use the normal distribution curve on their grading

  7. Saka ndiani achamiririrawo mastudents ane mastrengths kupaper 2. It was designed kuti this subject should have 2 papers for a reason. Still this is not fair to those students vagara vaine weakness kupaper 1 yacho. Hapana chagonekwa apa.

  8. Chakakosha mwana anozvarwa anoutano ramangwana rake rinenge rakajeka hatinga batiriri pakuti mai vazvara vatora ngova yakareba vachirwadziwa pakupona mwana. The verdict itself does not qualify to come from a learned judge but from a group leader.Comment…

    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.
