Zanu Pf Bigwigs linked to exam paper leaks

Published

on

Harare police provincial intelligence officer Superintendent Vigai Maunganidze appeared in court recently after he was allegeldy caught with a UZ law examination paper.

Leaking a University of Zimbabwe (UZ) exam paper has revealed that prominent politicians, security leaders, and other influential people pay their way into law school.
A syndicate of well-connected, powerful, and financially resourced people, including lecturers and relatives of UZ officials, purportedly has access to law faculty exam papers before any exam.

Before the controversy, students argued with law department teachers over the Bachelor of Substantive Laws (BLS), where the exam paper was leaked.

Superintendent Vigai Maunganidze was allegedly discovered carrying a UZ law test paper.

Prosecutors said Maunganidze stole a UZ faculty of law exam paper for second-year students on administrative local government law on October 31.

Maunganidze, who was due to take the exam, allegedly shared it via WhatsApp with Madombi, a Defense ministry officer and UZ BLS student.

Madombi allegedly shared the exam paper with Zanu PF Information Director Tafadzwa Mugwadi, who threatened to complain to the minister.

A UZ law lecturer informed The Standard that the paper leak was just the tip of the iceberg because a syndicate organized exams for prominent people who didn’t want to attend courses.

The source said Dubai Queen leads Level 1’s syndicate.

The gang is seeking for money because it has early access to exam papers.

“Many students engage in corrupt activities to pass tests, including accessing exams before exam day and altering results for those who failed.

Level 2 class syndicates have gotten test papers from the Disability Resource Centre.

Zanu PF legislator Dexter Nduna, a BLS student, protested the program’s corruption in April.

This happened once the BLS program became full-time.

“We registered in the program with the premise that it was a part-time program,” Nduna’s April 1, 2022 letter said.

The letter was copied to UZ Law dean Innocent Maja, Vice Chancellor Paul Mapfumo, Council for Legal Education chair Sylvia Chirau-Chigomba, and Speaker Jacob Mudenda.

“The academic leadership seems to be a law unto themselves, and conflicts of interest seem to be motivating choices (like canceling the BLS part-time program).

“Whether it is professional/ethical or standard UZ policy to tell students to make private arrangements and engagements with individual lecturers to negotiate for lectures, and if this does not open them to sexual harassment, extortion, etc. as the issue for demanding financial inducements by lecturers seems to be taking root at the UZ and the authorities seem to be condoning it under false pretences that these are merely operational issues under the purview of the UZ.

“Isn’t this enabling horrible practices?

“The removal of weekend BLS lectures may have other motives as it was indicated that lecturers can make other arrangements outside the auspices of the UZ, this involves the payment of inducements and incentives to the lecturers, particularly those teaching languages under the guise that they don’t teach on the weekends.

“What about part-time students?” Is this a ruse to conduct/force pupils into more lessons?

UZ law teachers told The Standard that most BLS students didn’t want to attend lectures but wanted to “purchase degrees.”

“This is a serious curriculum, but rich and politically connected people don’t want to attend lectures and demand degrees based on their standing.

One lecturer said, “It doesn’t function like that; the UZ law degree’s credibility is under attack.”

Last Monday, UZ officials dodged queries about their law degree.

Fredrick Hamadziripi, UZ law faculty chair, refused to comment on corruption charges.

Hamadziripi said, “Talk to the VC.” “I’m not aware of this situation and haven’t gotten a letter.”

Vice chancellor Mapfumo said he didn’t know about it.

Acting registrar Munyaradzi Madambi was in a meeting Friday and couldn’t respond.

After being asked questions, UZ law dean Maja hung up.

He refused to comment further.

Zanu PF MP and BLS student Nduna stated the faculty was corrupt.

Some students are taking exams without attending lectures, despite regulations requiring 60 hours.

“We don’t want special treatment” (part-time students).

“We only wanted to be treated with respect, but they (lecturers) are misusing their positions; it’s illegal.”

Former UZ vice chancellor Levy Nyagura was jailed in 2018 for misusing his office by giving Grace Mugabe a PHD in 2014.

Senior academic personnel said they never read Grace’s study proposal, a critical admission criterion. Standard
