State house minister Freedom Sikazwe has managed to access exam papers for his concubine and Mporokoso district commissioner Bridget Chitundu who is currently sitting for her GCE O level exams in Kasama. Sikazwe wants Chitundu, a married person and mother to have a certificate so that she can contest the Mporokoso parliamentary seat in 2021.
Sources at the Examinations Council of Zambia – ECZ that earlier this month, Sikazwe lied to some senior officers at ECZ that the papers were actually meant for dictator Edgar Lungu who wanted them for one of his nieces sitting for exams this year. Later after thorough investigations were done, it was established that in fact the papers were meant for Chitundu who had at that time travelled to Lusaka and was lodging at Chrismar hotel.
A report was submitted to police officers in charge of examinations malpractices and hoped that Chitundu would be arrested even before the exams start but to date she has not been blocked and even sat for her first paper today.
The junior officers at ECZ feared that it is likely that Chitundu may further leak the papers and thereby making the exam a fake attempt. They said that since GCE external exams have just started it is never too late to crack down on the DC.
