By Engineer Jacob Mutisi- Following this exposee https://www.herald.co.zw/audit-exposes-senior-managers-fake-qualifications/ you do not needs auditors to expose fake qualifications.
If fake qualifications can be found at the heart of The Zimbabwe Council for Higher Education (ZIMCHE), how about at all the other government institutions.
In 2017 as ZICT we embarked on building a system to verify qualifications of Zimbabweans https://www.iol.co.za/business-report/careers/watch-a-database-for-zimbabwean-degree-holders-to-root-out-fraud-12871466.
The system www.everify.org.zw is built and ready for implementation, the resistance we got from the academic institutions proves a point that is now in the public domain that some of those who are at the helm of government institutions do not possess the qualifications that they claim to have in fact they hold fake qualifications ,thus they resist and failed to see the importance of having a verification system as a country.
Having communicated with a lady who was in charge of verifying qualifications at the ministry of education, she advised me that she was fired after she exposed that 50% of qualifications submitted were fake.
For transparency sake the nation should be challenging those in positions of authority to make their qualifications public starting with the leadership of this great nation and moving down to the ministers, Permanent Secretaries, all head of parastatals, corporates, etc .
To put an end to these fake qualifications racket. We call on all academic institutions to ride on www.everify.co.zw a verification system and fake qualifications will be eradicated.
Mind you there is also faking of CVR documents, Drivers licences, Death Certificates,Passports the list is endless.
We need Information and Communication Technology (ICT) solutions to completely eradicate fake documentation and corruption in Zimbabwe’s economic sectors.
Last but not least, I would like to congratulate Daniel Nemukuyu for exposing this, others are being paid to stop exposing fake qualifications.
The truth is we all know someone who possess fake qualifications and we do not do a dame thing.
