ZIMSEC fails to pay grade 7 examinations markers. Marking of the examinations started soon after Christmas and ended in mid-January and the results were released early this month. The Zimbabwe Schools Examinations Council (ZIMSEC) is yet to pay teachers who marked the 2020 Grade Seven examinations.

Speaking to NewZimbabwe.com on condition of anonymity for fear of victimisation, one of the markers said they were promised ZWL$10 for Paper One and ZWL$15 for Paper Two per script.

Approximately, each person was supposed to mark about 500 scripts, including Paper One and Paper Two. The teacher was quoted as saying: Before we commenced the marking of the examinations, we were promised that payment will be deposited in our accounts on the day of completion of the marking exercise.

Since we completed marking the examinations, our supervisors have been making enquiries at the ZIMSEC offices, but nobody has given us satisfactory explanations.

Some of us borrowed money to travel to marking centres, hoping that our payment will be released on time. The teachers also complained of the low rates saying they sacrificed their lives at the height of the coronavirus crisis for “peanuts”.

NewZimbabwe.com’s repeated efforts to get a comment from Zimsec spokesperson Nicky Dlamini were all in vain as her mobile number went unanswered.
