ZIMSEC Public Relations Manager Nichollette Dhlamini told TechZim that the accused, Arnold Maimba (22,) was a temporary worker.

The examination council has since suspended the Risk Manager and Packing and Collating Manager pending an investigation into how Maimba managed to smuggle the papers unnoticed.
Dhlamini said all security personnel at the Norton Printing Press have been suspended and replaced.
The police recovered all the ZIMSEC 2020 O’ Level Papers that Maimba had smuggled out when his home was searched.
He also provided the authorities with a list of all the people that he had sold the papers to.
Police are still looking for the people who may have benefited from the scam.
