Teacher sat Maths exam for girlfriend

Elizabeth Tsuro Midlands Reporter—
THREE Kwekwe teachers have appeared in court accused of conniving to let their friend sit an O-Level Maths exam for his girlfriend. The Zideco College teachers, Canaan Gombe, Wellington Masiiwa and Courage Nyathi, whose ages were not given, appeared before Gweru magistrate Musaiona Shotgame for contravening the Zimsec Act.

The three pleaded not guilty and were remanded out of custody to March 11 on $50 bail each. Prosecuting, Munyaradzi Guvheya told the court that in November last year, the three connived to write a Zimsec Mathematics Paper Two examination for Gombe’s girlfriend, Lyn Chenesai Charumbira.

Guvheya said Gombe, who is a Mathematics teacher, approached Masiiwa and Nyathi who were invigilating and asked to see the examination paper.

“He went and wrote the paper and brought a draft answer sheet which he handed to Charumbira who then copied all the answers to her answer sheet using her own handwriting so that she would not be suspected,” said Guvheya.

The court heard that Charumbira accidentally attached the answers she was given by Gombe to her answer sheet and submitted it to the invigilator. Guvheya said the matter came to light when a marker discovered two answer sheets written in different handwritings prompting Zimsec to launch investigations that led to the trio’s arrest.

According to the Zimsec Act, any person who reveals contents of any examination material to an unauthorised person or anyone who seats or offers or attempts to present himself at an examination with the intention of impersonating another person faces up to one year in jail.

    Charumbira is very dull. She submits 2 answer sheets, no wonder someone had to write the exam for her. Some people’s stupidity makes me want to cry.

    so that’s how others amass high marks, and you find the person’s work performance does not match qualifications

    examinations should be monitored by a surveillance camera/ CCTV in addition to invigilators, there is some unfairness others obtain high marks and a good job through cheating, some one cheats his way up the corporate ladder

    Sometimes it amazes me how dumb many people are…. The maths teacher is incredibly stupid for risking his career for a mentally retarded lover/pupil.

  • nio9e

    This must have come at a cost for the girlfriend pupil/lover and you all know what it is yes S….. . are the parents of the pupil aware of this?

    examinations should be supervised by civil servants, some colleges are after money, cheats can offer a fortune to be allowed to cheat

  • jojo

    The lady is so damp, even after cheating she could not attach her own hand written papers?
