The Centre for Democracy and Economic Development Initiative (CDEDI) has faulted the state president Lazarus Chakwera for ordering the firing of Malawi National Examinations Board (MANEB) over leakage of Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examinations.

CDEDI Executive Director Sylvester Namiwa said this when responding to president Chakwera’s speech he delivered this morning regarding the MANEB scandal evolving MSCE examinations.

Namiwa suggested that the president would have waited for the commission of inquiry report before moving in to dismiss the top officials of MANEB.

“CDEDI has found the President at fault by suggesting the firing of top management at the Malawi National Examinations Board (MANEB), before the results of a commission of inquiry he has demanded from the education ministry, has come up with results and recommendations,” he said.

According to Namiwa, the initiative is shocked with what it calls indecisiveness speech by President Chakwera.

“The Centre for Democracy and Economic Development Initiatives (CDEDI) is shocked with the State President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera’s indecisiveness, shown in his special address to the nation delivered at the Kamuzu Palace on Thursday, 5th November 2020,” Namiwa said.

He continued that the president has clearly shown that “there were no wider consultations on his administration’s position, which was announced by the Ministry of Education on Wednesday, 4th November, 2020 to have the examinations cancelled, and that fresh examinations be re-administered from 9th March, 2021”

The grouping further maintained that government is still owing Malawians an explanation on what really happened surrounding the leakage of this year’s MSCE examinations.
