No Answers On The Sale Of Matric Results By Lenasia Man

Jan 09, 2013
Faizel Patel, Radio Islam News – 2013-01-09
The basic education department says it’s still waiting for details on how a Lenasia man allegedly sold matric results before they were officially released.

The man from Carnation Avenue in Lenasia was arrested last week for allegedly selling the 2012 matric results. He allegedly charged eager matric pupils R 30 to view the results from a segment of the Sowetan newspaper hours before they were officially released on Wednesday night.

Media outlets were given copies of the results, but were only able to publish them from 6am on Thursday morning

The department’s Panyaza Lesufi said he hopes it was an isolated incident. “I am crossing my fingers this is not widespread and that it is an isolated incident," said Lesufi.

Lesufi also said their investigation will determine whether or not the Soweton can publish results in the future. “We are awaiting a report from the Sowetan newspaper so that they can provide us with reason why this breach happened,” said Lesufi.

Lesufi added, “We are taking it very, very serious. It will affect future relations with the Sowetan and whether the Sowetan will have the right to issue results or not.”
