Hwange High School Teacher Jailed 12 Months For Exam Fraud

A 12-month prison sentence has been imposed on a Hwange High School teacher who committed academic fraud by writing three Ordinary Level students’ maths exams for the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC).

A 48-year-old teacher named Mkululi Moyo was found guilty of grave academic misconduct for taking the ZIMSEC Mathematics Paper 2 exam on behalf of the students.
