Primary and Secondary Education Minister Professor Paul Mavima has responded to the High Court ruling against his decision to order a rewrite for the 2017 Ordinary Level English Paper 2 after it emerged the paper had leaked.

High Court judge Justice Loice Matanda Moyo sitting with Justice Priscilla Munangati-Manongwa reversed the decision by the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) to order a rewrite for the 2017 Ordinary Level English Paper 2 saying it was inconsiderate. However, the court said that it cannot condone criminality as cheating had indeed taken place and confirmed the decision to nullify the results for the English Language paper 2. In a welcome development for most students, the resit for the paper which was supposed to take place on Friday has been cancelled and the students will be graded on the results of English Paper 1 only.

In a Facebook post Mavima said his ministry will comply with the High Court ruling. Mavima added that his ministry will take stern action to restore Zimsec’s credibility which has been marred by exam leakages over the years. Said Mavima:

The court decision on the English paper 2 is out. We will comply with the ruling. We will ensure that the matter of English paper 2 is dealt with as directed. Meanwhile, stern action will be taken to restore the credibility of our examination system.
