Exam papers: leak rumours untrue — probe

2009-10-28 00:00

AS matric examinations continue unhampered in the province, pupils can breathe a sigh of relief since police have been able to confirm that the feared paper leaks which were being investigated last week have been found to be untrue.

Senior Superintendent Jay Naicker said the priority committee tasked with the investigations found this just to be rumours. This was reiterated by KZN department spokesman, Sihle Mlotshwa, who said no tangible evidence has been produced to support any reports of paper leaks in the province. Instead, the investigations established that the rumoured exam paper discussions were centred on last year’s paper.

“The advantage of this new system is that papers have codes, which are specific to where the papers are from, which then tells us where they have been leaked. But no paper has been leaked in KZN.

“We also have not received any news of the papers that were leaked in Mpumalanga making their way into the province,” Mlotshwa said.
