WINDHOEK: Investigations into the alleged theft of Grade 10 and 12 examination papers in the Caprivi Region are still ongoing.
A number of learners and an adult were arrested for possessing current Grade 12 English and agriculture examination papers early this month.
Speaking to Nampa here yesterday, Ministry of Education Public Relations Officer (PRO) Romeo Muyunda said the ministry is still waiting for the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in that region to complete investigations into the matter and to draft a report before Education Minister Abraham Iyambo can pronounce himself on the matter.
When asked what mechanisms the ministry will put in place to prevent possible future theft of examination papers, Muyunda said they want to look at how the theft occurred from the police report and then the minister will decide.
The ministry expects to receive the report by the end of this week.
