The high court has ruled against the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC)’s decision to have Ordinary Level students re-sit for the 2017 November English Language paper 2, following reports of rampant cheating.

In a judgment delivered this afternoon in Harare, Justice Loice Matanda-Moyo and Justice Priscillah Munangati-Manongwa, ordered ZIMSEC to consider results of the English language paper 1 examination.

Mr Denford Halimani, the lawyer who represented the parents of the two children who dragged the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education and ZIMSEC to court for nullifying the O-level English paper 2 results and ordering a rewrite commended the court for upholding justice.

Meanwhile, members of the Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ), who were on their way to handover a petition to ZIMSEC when the court judgement was communicated welcomed the court's decision.
