Ministry of education said this as the Malawi Nation Examination Board (MANEB) has said all is set for this year’s Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education (PSLCE) and Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE).

Principle Secretary in the Ministry of Education Chikondano Mussa told the press that young girls who are pregnant should not feel ashamed of their pregnancies.
