Maneb ropes ACB, NIS in MSCE exams


By Tiyese Monjeza:

The Malawi National Examinations Board (Maneb) has said it will intensify security to safeguard the reputation of Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examinations set for re-administration from January 5.

Maneb acting Executive Director Dorothy Nampota said, as part of enhancing security, the board would engage Malawi Defence Force, the Anti-Corruption Bureau and National Intelligence Service, who will jointly work with police in safeguarding examination papers.


Nampota said this Thursday when she briefed news media on progress of preparedness for MSCE examinations.

She said Maneb would use the January 5 examinations as a platform for winning back public trust.

“We received K4.5 billion from the Treasury to re-administer these examinations. We know this is a lot of money and we are taking these examinations seriously. We want to take it upon ourselves to iron out any areas of doubt and show that we are capable of doing our level best when administering examinations,” Nampota said.


On progress made to identify those involved in the leakage of examinations in November, Nampota said the board was yet to receive a report from the police.

Pemphero Matupa, Cobbe Barracks Community Day Secondary School MSCE candidate, expressed gratitude that candidates would finally re-sit the examinations.

Atleast 154, 146 candidates are expected to re-sit MSCE examinations from January 5 to 29.
