AN INVIGILATOR at a commercial college in Bulawayo was slapped with 315 hours of community service after he leaked an examination paper to a student before the examination and demanded a $50 payment.
Hard Reubent Mudiwa (27) of Ross Camp, who is employed as a marketing officer at the Commerce and Industry Personnel College in Bulawayo, pleaded guilty to a charge of corruptly concealing from a principal a personal interest in a transaction, (leaking an exam paper to get a reward) when he appeared before Bulawayo magistrate Gladmore Mushove.
The magistrate convicted and sentenced him to 12 months in jail.
However, three months of the sentence were suspended for three years on condition of good behaviour.
The remaining nine months were suspended on condition he completes 315 hours of community service at Kuwadzana Primary School in Harare from December 16 this year.
The court heard that on November 26, Mudiwa was on duty as an invigilator at the Commerce and Industry Personnel College.
During the process of the examinations, he gave a candidate, Michael Kurauone, a note which was written, “Call me on
0778 847 721”.
After the examination, Kurauone called Mudiwa who told him that if he wanted to pass the following day’s examination paper, the Communication Skills Course, he should pay him $50 so that he could give him the examination paper before sitting for it.
On November 27 at 6am, Kurauone called Mudiwa and they met at the corner of Fort Street and 10th Avenue in Bulawayo where he gave him the examination paper which was supposed to be written at 8am. Kurauone paid him $50.
After handing over the examination paper, Mudiwa was arrested and taken to Bulawayo Central Police Station where he was charged.
