O-level Results Out This Week

Zimsec O-Level results for November 2021 are expected to be out this week.

In a statement, Zimsec said it had met the time period of two months after the last examination for 2021 was written on January 31, 2022.

Last week Zimsec released November A-Level results and statistics showed a 84,67 percent pass rate compared to 80,98 of November 2020.

Zimsec attributed delays of results to Covid-19 mitigatory measures which caused schools to shut down for a long period.

“The December 2021/2022 Advanced Level examination results were released on 5 April 2022 and the Ordinary Level examination results will be released this week.

“The 2021 school calendar was disrupted as the Ministry of Primary and Secondary education had to put in place mitigatory measures to curb the upsurge and spread of the Covid-19.”

The ministry also moved the examinations to later in the year to give time to complete teaching and learning and full coverage of the syllabus.

Hence examinations supposed to run from October to the end of November were moved to start on December 1, 2021 to enable candidates and teachers to complete the learning process that had been disrupted, read the Zimsec statement.

Zimbabwe’s Prison Officers To Be Trained In Mozambique

Zimbabwe will send some prisoners officers for training in Mozambique, in an exchange programme, that will see the country borrow best practices from its eastern neighbour.

This was said by Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi on Thursday during a courtesy call by a delegation from the National Penitentiary Services of Mozambique.

Ziyambi said Zimbabwe and Mozambique will jointly work on ways to improve the welfare of prisoners in line with international standards. Said Ziyambi:

We are going to send our officers to be trained in Mozambique and Mozambique will send their officers to be trained here in Zimbabwe.

We are having this programme with Mozambique so that they can exchange notes and see if they can borrow best practices, and implementations, within our system and vice versa.

We believe that this is a good thing, they have already started hitting the ground to familiarise themselves with our system.

Ziyambi also revealed that the Government is in the process of amending the Prisons Act so that it is in sync with the Constitution.

The director of National Penitentiary Services of Mozambique, General Antonio Augusto, said he was impressed by projects being undertaken by Zimbabwe’s prisoners.
