    Head keeps Grade 7 exam question papers at his rural home


    CHIKOMBA – Chikomba District Schools' Inspector, Emmanuel Kwenda who was on a routine visits recently, was shocked to stumble into a school where the head kept grade seven examination questions under a bed at his rural home some three kilometers away from the primary school.
    Kwenda confirmed the issue to The Mirror but declined to discuss it further saying that the issue had since been resolved.
    The Mirror however, was told by sources that Kwenda had since instructed Munyathi Primary School head Motion Chagonda to keep all external examination questions at Liebenberg High School in Chivhu where there is adequate security for question papers.
    The Mirror is informed that Kwenda went on a routine check during grade 7 examinations where he visited schools that were sitting for the various papers.
    He approached Munyathi Primary head and asked to be shown where the grade seven examination questions were kept. He was shocked to hear that the question papers were not at the school but were kept at the head's home which is three kilometers away.
    Kwenda went to the head's home where sources told The Mirror that the papers were found under the teacher's bed.
    Apart from Munyathi, pupils for ……Primary also write their grade seven exams at the centre.
    The head is said to have argued that there was no security at Munyathi hence the move to keep the papers at his rural home. Kwenda seems to have agreed with Chagonda but instructed that the papers be kept at Liebenberg which is one of the nearest schools.
    Kwenda said there was a classroom block that was being built at Munyati and he was confident that enough security would be found for storage of examination papers once the building is completed.
    Chagonda confirmed the incident in a telephone interview.
