LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The Centre for Democracy and Economic Development Initiatives (CDEDI) is shocked with the State President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera’s indecisiveness, shown in his special address to the nation delivered at the Kamuzu Palace on Thursday, 5th November 2020.

CDEDI Executive Director Sylvester Namiwa cautions President Chakwera’s decision without thorough consultation on the matter.

Namiwa says, “By directing that the 2020 Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examinations be re-administered no later than January, 2021, the President has clearly shown that there were no wider consultations on his administration’s position, which was announced by the Ministry of Education on Wednesday, 4th November, 2020 to have the examinations cancelled, and that fresh examinations be re-administered from 9th March, 2021.

“CDEDI has found the President at fault by suggesting the firing of top management at the Malawi National Examinations Board (MANEB), before the results of a commission of inquiry he has demanded from the education ministry, has come up with results and recommendations”.

He added, “CDEDI’s stand remains, that government owes Malawians an explanation on whatever has happened surrounding the leakage of the 2020 MSCE examinations’

Malawi government through ministry of education on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 cancelled 2020 MSCE exams for being leaked.

After the cancellation, there was demonstration among students in some parts of the country.

About 150,000 sat for the leaked exams.
