VP Abdelbagi warns against exam cheating

By Bida Elly David


Vice President for the Service Cluster, Hussein Abdelbagi, has issued a stern warning to schools to desist from utilizing exam leaks as a means to pass their students.

This cautionary message comes in light of recent reports suggesting that some schools may be taking advantage of leaked examination papers to boost their students’ grades.

Mr. Abdelbagi emphasized the need for schools to uphold academic integrity and ensure that all students are evaluated fairly and accurately based on their individual merits and abilities.

He further urged relevant authorities to take swift action against any individuals found to be engaging in such malpractices.

“We are going to take serious measures as a government against anybody whether head teachers, invigilators, security forces who will temper to expose examinations,’’ he said on Monday during the bell ringing to mark the start of the P8 final exams.

Schools caught in the act will face legal measures, including examination cancellations, as a next step, he added.

“We will prosecute any custodian caught in promotion of such act with no fear or favor because we need to build future leaders to transform this Country.”

Last year, seven teachers were arrested by the National Security Service for allegedly leaking last year’s Certificate of Primary Examination (CPE) papers.

David John Kumuri, the Director Public Relations Department office of the Director-General said the suspects were from Kapoeta town of Eastern Equatoria, Yirol West County of Lakes State, Malakal town in Upper Nile state.
