President Lazarus Chakwera: orders MANEB to re-administer fresh exams by January

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)—Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera has ordered the firing of Malawi National Examinations Board (MANEB) top officials by the end of this month for its gross incompetence in the management of the 2020 Malawi School Certificate of Education (M.S.C.E) examinations.

Speaking today Thursday following the cancellation of the national examinations over massive leakages, Chakwera said the top management of MANEB must be replaced immediately with another team which will deliver credible examinations that Malawi has ever had.

The president has also given the Ministry of Education a week to identify and discipline those behind the examinations mess.

Meanwhile, Chakwera has directed Maneb to re-administer MSCE examinations before end of January next year and not in March as earlier communicated by the Ministry of Education in conjunction with national examination board.

Ministry of Education, Science and Technology in conjunction with Malawi National Examination Board (MANEB) cancelled this year’s MSCE examinations on Wednesday following revelations of massive leakage.

About 152 thousand candidates were sitting for the 2020 national exams which were initially slated to be administered from June 18, 2020, but were postponed due to Covid-19 which led to closure of primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities.
