The Malawi National Examinations Board (Maneb) has quashed social media reports that the ongoing 2020 Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examinations have once again been leaked.
People on various social media platforms have been sharing the purported MSCE papers in less than a week period after readmission of examinations.
But commenting on the reports, Maneb`s Board Chairperson Professor Al Mtenje has distanced the Board`s position from the leaked papers saying that no exam has been leaked saying that this time around Maneb has tighten up security.
“I would like to inform the nation here categorically that no examinations have leaked, we have heard of lots of papers circulating in social media about leakage about leakage of exams but that is not correct, we as Maneb Board we would like to categorically state that no examinations have been leaked.
“We always work with security agents in our investigations, at any time when we say that papers haven’t leaked we have evidence at that point that papers have not leaked, and this statement is coming with authority,” said Professor Mtenje.
Meanwhile, the Education, Science and Technology Committee of Parliament through its Chairperson Brianax Kaise says the Committee is seriously observing the situation.
“We have taken it cautiously, we don’t trust the wholly because of the experience that we had last, so this time as a Committee we have taken it cautiously,” said Kaise.
Currently, candidates are writing the MSCE examinations as security is being provided by both Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers and officers from the Malawi Police Service (MPS).
