Exam cheats fined

MUTARE - A 21-year-old woman who was arrested for sitting for an Ordinary Level examination on behalf of a woman twice her age has been fined $200 for impersonation.

Brenda Nyansanya’s colleague Juliet Saungweme, 42 with whom she lives  in Chikanga 3, was also slapped with a similar fine following their conviction by magistrate Sekai Chiundura yesterday.

The two are not related.

The duo was convicted on their own plea of guilt for contravening section 35 (d) of Zimsec Act chapter 25:18.

It was the State’s case that on June 7, 2016 at around 1400 hours Nyansanya took Saungweme’s national identity card and proceeded to Manzununu Secondary School and sat for Commerce paper 2 June examinations 2016.

Norah Matika, a teacher at the school who was invigilating the exam noticed that Nyansanya was not the real candidate. She then informed her colleague Admire Chinohamba who then informed the school examination committee leading to the duo’s arrest.

Fletcher Karombe was prosecuting.

Hey colleagues in the media world. Please consider the first impressions when you use old pictures on stories. I thought St Ignatius had been caught cheating. Please spare a thought.
