By A Correspondent- The Zimbabwe Schools Examination Council was this week forced to suspend the setting of examination papers after examiners downed tools, rejecting a $4 000 payment offer, which they deemed too little.

On Tuesday, over 100 examiners, mostly teachers who were camped at Chinhoyi University of Technology refused to prepare questions for compilation into examination papers for future use after Zimsec had duped them into starting work without signing contracts.

The teachers demanded to be paid the equivalent of US$300 for the 12 days they are supposed to work.

Zimsec said the strike by the teachers would not affect this year’s examinations, which had already been set.-DailyNews
