Police in Ndirande Township have arrested three people for allegedly misappropriating examinations fees for form four students.
Officer –In-Charge for Ndirande Police Sub-station, Macdonald Mazonga said the three are currently in custody but could not disclose their particulars.
He further revealed that 63 candidates have been denied to seat for this year’s Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) Examination after the three pocketed examinations fees.
About 153,646 candidates are sitting for this year’s examinations which started on Wednesday 22nd June up to July 20th, 2016.
MANEB was optimistic that this year’s MSCE examination will have minimal cheating cases and complaints.
MANEB Public Relations Officer (PRO) Simeon Maganga said they had been conducting anti-cheating campaigns to curb the malpractices.
Maganga said the campaigns have shown to be effective during the primary school and Junior Certificate examinations this year.
However, some of exam papers including Biology practical paper and Physical Science have been found in hands of candidates before initially the examination started.
MANEB officials have confirmed of the possible leakage but remained tight-lipped as to how it has happened after intensifying anti-cheating campaigns.
