The Malawi National Examination Board (Maneb) says five people have been arrested for various malpractices during the 2016 Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education (PSLCE) exams that begun on Wednesday.

According to Maneb, they arrested Faith Lawrence from Mpemba in Blantyre on the first day of the exams for writing on behalf of a candidate and Noel Lunguja for facilitating the move.

Investigations revealed that Lawrence already completed his secondary school education but was writing the exams as part of an impersonation move which the headteacher for Chipwepwete School, Lunguja, was coordinating.

In Lilongwe at Bunda area, a supervisor at Mkazomba Cluster Centre, Chiyeso Jifa, has been arrested for collecting examination papers without police escort and for losing an envelope containing unwritten English examination papers in the process.

At Thawale Cluster Centre in Lilongwe, invigilator Elise Zimba Gumbo was arrested for dictating answers during an English paper while the centre’s supervisor Winston Nankumba has been arrested as reports reveal that he was present when the invigilator was dictating the answers.

Lawrence and Lunguja are yet to appear in court to answer charges of writing exams on behalf of a candidate contrary to Maneb Regulations Section 29(18) as read together with Section 14(8) of Maneb Act.

Jifa will be dragged to court as per to Maneb Act Section 14 subsection 3(a) and (b) while Gumbo and Nankumba are to answer charges contrary to Section 14(2b) which prohibits revealing of answers to examination questions.
