Four Men Sentenced To 8 Months In Prison For Selling Leaked ZIMSEC Exam Papers

Four men from Chipinge have been sentenced to eight months in prison each for selling leaked ZIMSEC examination papers to prospective candidates across the country.

Ashard Sibiya aged 22 and Brian Kossam (22) had their sentences wholly suspended on the condition of good behaviour, while Tazwa Zibuke (22) and Musuthu Sithole (21)’s sentences were commuted to 108 hours of community service.

The four pleaded guilty to selling and circulating the November ZIMSEC Maths Ordinary level paper 1 and 2, Advanced level Mathematics Paper 2, and Advanced level Accounts paper 2 and 3, ZBC News reported.

It is not clear how they got the papers.

Earlier this month, the same court sentenced three Gaza High School students; Takudzwa Muboera aged 19 and Thabo Sigauke (17) to community service after they pleaded guilty to selling leaked examination papers and fraud.

The trio was charging at least ZWL$20 000 per paper which was paid into their Ecocash accounts.

Meanwhile, ZIMSEC says candidates who had pre-access to question papers continue to be identified and in line with the ZIMSEC Act, Section 34, will have examination results cancelled.

Examination papers have been leaking over the years raising questions about the integrity of the certificates and qualifications.

  1. “It is not clear how they got the papers.” means the investigators have failed to trace how the papers were leaked from ZIMSEC the source. In a noble state ZIMSEC Directors should either resign or be fired coz the integrity of national exams is at stake.
