    Zimsec Geography Paper 2 leaks in Masvingo


    MASVINGO - The Zimbabwe Schools Examination Council (Zimsec) November 2016 O Level Geography Paper 2 question paper leaked and was on sale at Sisk shops in Mucheke in Masvingo before students sat for it.
    Two external students who were caught with answers by alert invigilators at Ndarama High School and Masvingo Christian College during the examinations on Friday morning are said to have told the Police that they bought the question papers on the open market in Mucheke.
    Zimsec officials who talked to The Mirror confirmed the leak but declined to comment further after realising that they were speaking to The Mirror.
    This is not the first time that Zimsec question papers have leaked. Last year a young lady staying in Mucheke got into trouble after selling questions which while one of them is said to have proved to have been genuine, the rest were fake.
    Nicky Dhlamini the Zimsec spokesperson was not picking up her cell phone as she was said to be out of office.
    The latest scandal came to light when two external students were caught red handed with answers hand written on papers by alert invigilators.
    "The external student had one answer to a question with 25 marks which was seen by invigilators at Christian High School during the examination.
    When he was asked where he got the question from he told the invigilators that he bought the question paper at Sisk," said a source at Chikato Police Station.
    The other case involved an external student at Ndarama High School who sneaked all the answers written at the back of the entry form into the examination room only to be flashed out by invigilators who made a report to Chikato Police Station.
    When contacted for comment Police provincial acting spokesperson Sgnt Crispen Gwashu said they have not received such a report.
     "Yes there were leaks in Masvingo at Ndarama but if I tell you we would be jeopardising investigations because the Police and Zimsec officials are out in full force to bring the person who leaked the exams to book.
    It is obvious the paper was leaked well before the exam," said an official in Harare.
