Opposition Protests Against Order To Rewrite Zimsec Exams

Transform Zimbabwe also held a demonstration against Primary and Secondary Education Minister Professor Paul Mavima’s order for pupils to rewrite an English Paper 2 exam. .

Last week, Mavima ordered the re-writing of the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zmsec) examination after it emerged the paper had leaked. Transform Zimbabwe submitted a petition refusing the re-write to the permanent secretary in the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education Silvia Utete Masango after a scuffle with the police. Protestors promised to return on Friday if the re-write is not scrapped. The opposition party also delivered a petition to the Parliament of Zimbabwe. Transform Zimbabwe had to storm Utete Masango’s office after she refused to accept the petition.

The permanent secretary also apologised for refusing to accept the protestors’ petition and promised them that she will deliver the petition to the minister although the matter is still before the courts. High Court judge Justice Loice Matanda Moyo is expected to deliver a judgment in the matter in which parents represented by the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR), are challenging Mavima’s move to order a retake of the 2017 O-Level English Paper 2 examination, which he nullified following reports of massive leaking of the test paper through social media.

Watch a video below of Transform Zimbabwe leader Jacob Ngarivhume giving feedback after submitting the petition:
