University of Zimbabwe (UZ), social sciences student Audrey Msipha, has taken the institution to the High Court. Msipha who is represented by the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR), wants the court to stop the University from making students rewrite an examination which they alleged had leaked. Part of her court papers read,
This is an urgent chamber application for a prohibitory interdict, prohibiting the first, second and third respondents (UZ, the chancellor of the UZ and academic registrar of UZ) from conducting a rewrite of the advanced structural geology HGL 408 on August 10, 2018 or any date there about and setting aside the decision to nullify the examination results for being improper and also to declare that the results of the November 2017 examinations are proper and must be used to determine whether or not myself and other students passed the examination.
The matter is still pending at the courts.
