BREAKING NEWS : Grade 12 ECZ Exam Question Papers Have Been Leaked

The 2011 Examinations Council of Zambia (ECZ) grade twelve (12) Examination questions in various subjects have been leaked, Tumfweko has understood.
Sources within ECZ secretariat have disclosed and revealed this to Tumfweko.
The source disclosed that the leaked 2011 grade 12 Exam questions were sneaked out using the flash drives on soft print and later printed out.
“The guys who work from the Examinations questions bank have been doing this for some years now. What they ussually do is, they leak the questions then they start selling those questions at hefty prices. Like in the previous government, some ministers where in the forefront pushing for their childrens questions, ” said the source.
The source further revealed that there are some senior staff from the questions bank who are at the centre of every mal move made.
The culprits took advantage of the busy election period to execute the fraud.
“We know there move, they first plant people in all the provinces who are middle men, who sale the original papers then whatever is raised, is shared among them, so as we are talking the papers are already in the street being sold to targeted well to do pupils by the agents they have planted in provinces,” the source said.
ECZ ussually prepares four sets of examinations in A,B,C,D. In case A is leaked, B replaces it and so on.
The grade twelve examinations begin in two weeks time.
The selling of exam questions, whether authentic or not, is booming and has popped up in the news over the years.
2005 intake has gone in the history books of ECZ as the least intake which had minimal exam leakages unlike other intakes in the last decade when then minister Dr Brian Chituwo was minister of Education.
ECZ is since urged to withdraw and replace the exam papers sent to centres as leaked papers are already on the street.

    Ata bane enshi iyi nomba ? Grade 12 final exam has gone to the dogs.What happened to those days when we used to use our brains to get those powerful points ? ECZ better put your house in order bane we dont want dull people filling up our universities.

  7. Future President   October 11, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Very Sad!! But the new government needs to look at the root cause of this yearly occurance. I think puting more money in the pockets of these ECZ guys would do. In my view the reason why they do this is just to earn extra cash to make ends meet at the expense of the value of our education, i would not be supprised if this new radical government scraps off the grade 12 exams because they are seemingly serving no purpose.

    • correctedZ   October 11, 2011 at 3:07 pm

      Its far from being true to suggest officers at ECZ at lowly paid, no ways. Infact they are amongst the few decently renumerated zambians we have. on top of their good salaries they accumulate a lot of allowances so its not like govt needs to put more money in their pockets, nah. They are just greedy individuals. Their Director though is a very straight and tough man who needs to be supported through and through

  10. Lecturer   October 11, 2011 at 2:11 pm

    Let them use those leakages if the papers have truly leaked, but we shall sort them out when they come to the universities.

  11. its ok   October 11, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    it is shameful that for twety years we have no solution to the issue of leakages, useless.

  12. Evans   October 11, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    CCTV shud be there at ECZ.If shops can have CCTV why not ba ECZ? We dnt need to start printing them from South Africa like BALLOT PAPERS.

    • mwewa   October 11, 2011 at 2:36 pm

      @ Evans it will be worse if UPG is engaged by ECZ to print exam papers.especially that the 2 bodies have tha same abbreviations

  13. UNZA DON   October 11, 2011 at 2:26 pm

    Yes, CCTV needs to be installed in these departments and make sure there is serious scrutiny of the people that work there, this is a serious issue. And indeed, when these chaps reach University, they will be taken care of, no mercy. Baiche nakalamiponya ngamwaisa nobu kopo!!!!!

    Education has been diluted with leakages, no wonder some grade 12 school leavers do not know how to write an application letter for a job or to go to college you have to come in and assist. The new gvt should look into this problem poor as we are we cannot afford to have illiterates.

  29. Galagata   October 11, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    The Director of ECZ ………with immediate effect

  30. THE ONLY LIVING JAY   October 11, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    This may explain the too many distinctionz around lately. And often, some parents may just “succumb” to paying for their children to get theze “leax”, since the teacherz “don’t teach” anyway! A very sad state of affairz indeed.

  31. Galagata   October 11, 2011 at 3:58 pm

    No wonder these chaps are dull nowadays

  32. Matanga   October 11, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    It is the same shit every year and management team at ECZ dont do anything about it. Can somebody under our new government clean up the mess at ECZ!!! We re tired of these bushit!!!

  33. tj2   October 11, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    PVT ifunika ku ECZ na exam monitors anso!

  34. Teacher   October 11, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    This makes sad reading indeed. What surprises me the most is that pupils end up being arrested and some cases their results being withheld by THE SAME CORRUPT E.C.Z. But the question that begs to be answered is, who is to blame for all this nonsense? The pupils are just are beneficiary to the rotten system. Further more who can refuse to have a peep at a leaked paper whether on religious grounds or doubting point of it. These swines must be dealt with, one they get very good monies and yet do very little in the whole process apart from leaking the papers.

  35. SPEAKING TIME   October 11, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    Dear ECZ
    May I mention to ECZ that I pray that God should purnish you for what you have been doing to our education system-disadvantaging the poor at your own useless selfish benefit(I mean you ECZ guys invovled in this sinful act waste than adultery), You have sent to unoversity many students that did not deserve it and these are the same people that have even proven to be corrupt…they keep their corruption thru and thru from G12 leakage to buying results from university lecturers to paying bribes for their jobs and in turn start receiving bribes from others.God should visit you for transformation.
    This issue of leakages is actually prominent in lusaka and on the copperbelt and you keep on disadvantaging people from rural areas who can’t afford your stupid.Let education be for everyone-if you know and you work for ECZ that you are not good with confidentiality and you have no integrity at all then the best thing you can do is to quit and join some where else where you will not be entrusted with such sensitive asignments.
    Shame on all of you invovled….shame on all of you students invovled.
    Think about that orphan you are about to disadvantage, that poor child who can not afford to pay for your stupidity…that child with high levels of integrity who does not want to cheat becouse he/she knows that God will judge even the mosy hidden secrets.

    I hope you will realise the damage you are doing and decide to stop it so that you find favour in the hands of Christ who died for you also

  36. Dragsquard Mbewe   October 11, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    Njala, sibafola zambili ndalama, so they are just trying to suppliment. I hope the new government will really put more money in their pocket the correct way.

  37. why??????????????   October 11, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    this is realy terrible the goverment should put an end to this becaus its notfair for us that study hard all year only for others to use leakage

  38. Tantamount   October 11, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    This is normal. It happens in Europe and the United States as well.

  39. monkeys   October 11, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    the monkeys hav heard 4 themselves ecz must truly be cleaned of bad weeds if our selection system 4 jobs placement has to be credible.

  40. TRUE RANGERS   October 11, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    ECZ – Electral Commission of Zambia

    ECZ – Examination Council of Zambia

    So what is the problem with these two institutions.

  41. Anani Koffi   October 11, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    Awe balekeni. Elyo bonse muno efyo mwapashile. Kanofye fwe bafuma ku Luwingu we are the only ones who have done a clean game

  42. thought   October 11, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    The annual leakages at ECZ raise serious questions about our capacity operate beyond reproach. this explains why the quality of new professionals is very low. If we can not effectively guard against G12 leakageS, WHAT ABOUT BALLOTS WHERE STAKES ARE HIGH?

  43. Saulani   October 11, 2011 at 4:34 pm

  49. Kolobingo   October 11, 2011 at 5:52 pm

    What is the difference between ACCA papers that never leak and g12 papers.corruption pa ZED.cobby Clean up the mess.At boarding schools its difficult to have leaked papers but these spoiled day scholars with a lot of money will surely find themselves at CBU and the ranked 69 University in Africa called UNZA.If you pass because of leakage and attempt professional exams like ACCA, you will shit in your pants in the exam room.

  50. chendela   October 11, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    The causes of all these are private schools.private schools are full of half baked teachers from private colleges and yet they want to attain 100% pass rate,so the schools buy leakages in order to achieve this.
