Provincial Intelligence Officer Back In Court Over Leaked UZ Law Exam Paper

A senior police officer, accused of leaking a law exam paper at the University of Zimbabwe (UZ), was expected back in court on Tuesday for his bail hearing.

Superintendent Vigai Maunganidze, the provincial intelligence officer for Harare, appeared in court over the weekend, and again on Monday where his application, refusing to be placed on remand, was dismissed.

Presiding magistrate, Tranos Utahwashe, dismissed the application, saying there is reasonable suspicion that a crime was committed.

This warranted Maunganidze being placed on remand leading to the bail application.

Prosecutor Ephraim Zinyandu told the court that on 31 October 2022, Maunganidze obtained a UZ Faculty of Law examination paper on Administrative and Local Government Law for second-year students.

The paper was scheduled to be written on 3 November and he was among the students sitting for the exam.

It is alleged that Maunganidze shared the paper with Farai Madombi, a third-year Bachelor of Substantive Laws at UZ, via WhatsApp.

On 1 November, Madombi sat for his Company Law exam in the afternoon.

During the exam, some students were caught cheating and were disqualified.

After the exam, Madombi’s classmate, Tafadzwa Mugwadi, approached him and started discussing the exam paper they had written.

It alleged that Mugwadi started complaining about people who cheat in exams.

Mugwadi reportedly revealed plans to approach the Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development to expose exam cheats.

It is alleged that Madombi, who had leaked the Administrative and Local Government Law BLS204 exam paper, then forwarded the paper to Mugwadi.

Mugwadi immediately notified the UZ authorities, who confirmed the paper as the one to be written by second-year students on 3 November.

The university then issued a notice canceling the exam. | H-Metro
