The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) has arrested a senior police officer after he was found in possession of an examination paper that he was scheduled to write for a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree.
The suspect, Superintendent Vigai Maunganidze appeared in court in Harare on Saturday and was remanded in custody to Monday for bail hearing.
ZACC spokesperson Thandiwe Mlobane confirmed the arrest to The Herald on Sunday night. She said:
I can confirm the arrest of a senior police officer, Vengai Maunganidze on Friday, November 11 2022 on allegations of unlawful possession of an exam paper before the examination day and he appeared in court on November 12, 2022. Investigations are continuing.
The leakage of examination papers has become a common occurrence and threatens to undermine the credibility of examination processes in the country.
Last week, the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) said some candidates, examination administrators, and members of the public have been arrested and have appeared before the courts over the leakage of Ordinary Level Question Papers.
