Good to see women are also getting convicted for Gender Based Violence however those numbers would have been higher than that because some men suffer in silence and some that get to report are become laughing stocks at Police Stations.

Mapanzure gvt high school in mvg could not finish mathematics exam due lack of stationary.The was no graph papers and the pupils left the questions unanswered because of limited graph papers.Some of the students are talking of reporting to zimsec in Masvingo town.This is because the administration is corrupt and they eat exam fees and could not buy the stationary.Basure the siniour teacher and the gvt high school told the pupils that Zimsec was supposed to provide the stationary not the school which is incorrect.Mapakomhere high school nearby had enough graph papers for the exam about 4 graph papers each which is correct. Chauraya head of Mapanzure gvt high school is said to be tyrant and running currupt administration.Everyday he goes to town Masvingo using school resources but he could not buy the stationary for the poor pupils.Chiweshe the deputy head of Mapanzure high School is believed to the who was in charge of the paper 2 mathematics.I think Pindula news and the Anty corruption council of Zimbabwe should visit the school to investigate the issue because most of the stack holders and community are complaining of the currupt adminstration of Mapanzure high school. Head's office is in the school car and most of his teachers are subotaging the head.The ACCZ should visit the school and community to investigate this mathematics exams because the future of the students is in danger.Can you guys help to reach Pindula news so I could give the news in full
