The Malawi Examinations Board (MANEB) has punished two invigilators after they were found basking in the sun while exams were in progress.

The two invigilators, a lady and a gentleman, who were stationed at Mitundu CDSS cluster centre in Lilongwe were found relaxing during a spot-check mission by MANEB officials on Friday.

According to a statement by MANEB, the board has since withdrawn the services of the two.

The officer, Sergeant Botha, could not be found at his post at 9:30pm on Friday and on Saturday at both 4:20am and 8:30am.

“He has since been replaced and he will face an internal (police) disciplinary action as per the nature of his job,” the statement reads.

In this year’s Junior Certificate of Education exams two cases of cheating have been registered whereby students were found in possession of “likasa”.

The students are Joseph Mataya, who was arrested at Nasawa CDSS Cluster Centre Nasawa in Zomba Rural Education district on Friday and 21 year-old Liphet Gambatula who is a student at God’s Power Private Secondary School in Lilongwe Rural West.

  8. Standard Ya Maphunziro Ku Malawi Anayilakwisa Ndi Chawa Uja, Cheating Inayambira Pa Iyeyo, During Kamuzu’s Time People Were Passing The Exams Through Hard Work, No Wander Anthu Ozindikila Amatumiza Ana Kunja

  9. Maneb has not paid invigilators yet it’s quick in executing punishment. The invigilators were too hungry nanga osawapasa zao mumati akadya kuti after all JC exams according to maneb is useless. why do you mistreat people? You assigned some invigilators as residential mumati akalipirako ku ma resthouse mapwala?

  10. Basking in the sun isn’t an issue at all coz it is the same MANEB which started this whole mess! How come is it that there were no security officers at the cluster centres? Ndiye ana asukuluwo angaope kutenga likasa, kapena aphunzitsi kuothera dzuwa? And 4 ur own in4mation, the teachers havnt received their subsistence allowances even though the exercise is now over,( & more painful is that some of them were on residential basis, i.e. very far from their respective homes)! What could then motivate the teachers 2 b strict with the rules?
