Police Suspect ZIMSEC Head Office Is The Source Of Exam Leakages

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has vowed to investigate the source of examination leakages of Zimbabwe School Examination Council (ZIMSEC) papers over the years.

Police suspect the soft copies of the papers are leaked by someone at the ZIMSEC head office in Harare.

Almost every year, the Maths and English papers are leaked, and ZIMSEC has lost integrity as a result.

ZIMSEC recently issued a statement confirming the leakage of the Ordinary Level Mathematics Paper 1 that was written on 18 October 2022.

The examinations management body added that some candidates who had pre-access to the question paper had been identified.

In a leaked police memorandum, dated 19 October 2022, a candidate at Bikita Fashu High School was seen with an English Paper 2 question paper with answers that he was copying during the English paper two examination which was running between 0900hrs and 1100hrs on the 19th of October 2022.

The school head reported the matter to the police and further investigations established that the candidate had also received a soft copy of a suspected Mathematics Paper. The memo reads in part:

It appears this year’s ZIMSEC examinations are seriously leaked and it appears the source is in Harare and chances are high that the leakages are from ZIMSEC offices in Harare. Action should be taken on ZIMSEC head offices where the soft copies originate.

Pamushana High School has a long history of leaking examinations and the source, Chimbodzikai village Chief Marozva Bikita is near Pamushana High School.
