Fraudsters Selling Fake November 2022 ZIMSEC Exam Papers1 year ago
The Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) says purported November 2022 examination papers being advertised for sale on social media platforms are fake.
This comes after three Harare men, going by what seem to be fake names, claim to have November examination papers for six subjects for sale.
The trio claims to have ZIMSEC Mathematics, Combined Science, English Language, Shona Language, Geography and History papers.
They are calling themselves Dr TN Machache (0775 197 627), Mr PG Chigumbu (0736 312 609) and Mr N Mwenje (0789 962 343) and gave contact numbers on which they could be reached. Their social media advert read:
We sell November 2022 ZIMSEC papers at a very affordable price. NB. We only have access to the examination papers of the following subjects: Mathematics, Combined Science, English Language, Shona Language, Geography and History.

When contacted by The Sunday News, “Dr Machache” using mobile number 0775 197 627, said they are no longer offering Mathematics and Combined Science examination papers, saying they “reached the maximum number of people [on Wednesday].”
He said that each examination paper was going for US$80.
However, ZIMSEC public relations manager Nicky Dlamini said the papers are fake. She said:
Good day, ZIMSEC is aware of the image with purported 2022 exam papers on sale. The Security department of the Council has verified that these are fake papers being sold in an attempt to defraud those who purchase them.
She added that full investigations are in progress and further comments will be available after the conclusion of the investigations.
