High Court dismisses application by former MSU student expelled for cheating in exam

Posted by Tayana

The Bulawayo High Court has dismissed an application by a Midlands State University (MSU) student challenging his expulsion and nullification of results after he was caught cheating during an examination. In his defense he said he mistakenly brought scrap pieces of paper to the examination hall due to pressure.

Bulawayo High Court judge Justice Nokuthula Moyo’s ruling follows an application by Prosper Makumbe who was allegedly caught by an invigilator while in possession of six pieces of scrap paper containing material that was relevant to the examination. Makumbe, who sought an order compelling  MSU to reverse the nullification of his results, was writing an MBA Business Leadership supplementary examination when the incident occurred on July 24 in 2014.
