Tinashe Sambiri|ZIMSEC is battling to pay teachers currently marking both Ordinary Level and Advanced Level examinations, it has emerged.
There is furore following failure by troubled ZIMSEC to pay markers stipulated allowances.
The markers accuse ZIMSEC of hoodwinking them.
“Own goals don’t come this easy. ZIMSEC has just paid resident markers RTGS9k and non-resident markers RTGS19k, as living allowances.
