THE trial of a 39 year-old school head and four teachers who are facing charges of leaking Ordinary Level exam papers was on Tuesday deferred for the third time.

Gweru magistrate, Sithembinkosi Ncube, will announce the trial date early next month.

Vimbai Manaka, a school head at Njeremoto secondary school in Sesombe Resettlement area, Zhombe, is facing two charges of criminal abuse of office and contravening a section of the Zimbabwe School Examination Council (Zimsec) Act.

Four other teachers - Bonaventure Mungwiro, 42, his brother Bernadino from Kwekwe, Michael Chiridzo, 40, and Lloyd Mpofu both of Chirodzo Private College in Kwekwe and William Gondo, a director at Booms College in Mkoba 2, Gweru - also face the same charges.

The court heard that on November 3, 2013, Manaka received Ordinary Level exam papers for Geography paper 2 and Integrated Science paper 2.

On a date unknown to the prosecutor but between the 3rd and the 11th of November, Manaka allegedly opened the safe and broke seals of two envelopes that contained the exam papers.

He allegedly sold the exam papers to Mpofu at Chirodzo Private College, who also later sold them to people in Kwekwe.

After receiving information that Gondo had geography and science exam papers in Gweru, police pounced and allegedly discovered a hand-written science exam paper in his vehicle.

Gondo implicated Bernadino alleging he had bought the science paper for $100.

Investigations on the origins of the leaked papers led to Manaka’s arrest.
