Drama as ZIMSEC sends a Map-less” O’ Level Geography Exam


The paper usually has a Map attached to it for the benefit of the candidates. Temba Mliswa demanded that the Minister of Primary and Secondary Education explain why a Geography paper was written without Maps.

Norton legislator, Temba Mliswa, this Thursday fumed over reports that the Ordinary Level Geography paper that was written countrywide on Tuesday had no Maps.

The Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Tsitsi Gezi responded saying that was a specific question that needed that the responsible minister has to investigate. Gezi added that the minister will have to give feedback on the matter next week when Parliament sits again.

This comes after some stakeholders had called upon the government to call off this year’s academic calendar citing that schools and the examinations body, ZIMSEC, were not adequately prepared to run examinations.

A few weeks before the examinations, teachers threatened to boycott invigilation if the government had not paid them their allowances.
