    NECTA: Forgery of certificates alarming

    By Correspondent Felister Peter

    The national examination body has cancelled results of 820 candidates out of 1,066 from Kange Teachers College allegedly for forging secondary school certificates to gain admission to the college.

    This comes amid reports of rampant forgery of secondary school certificates in higher learning institutions and in the labour sector.

    Executive Secretary of the National Examination Council of Tanzania (NECTA) Joyce Ndalichako admitted yesterday that the problem of forging academic certificates has been growing.

    According to Ndalichako only 78 candidates from Kange College out of 1066 who sat for national examinations had genuine form four certificates.

    She said they were still investigating the other 168 students from the same college to establish the authenticity of their certificates.

    She said the problem of forging certificates was currently alarming whereby from June 2007 to July 2008, NECTA had nabbed 605 forged secondary school certificates out of 3,636 certificates that were submitted to the council by employers from different organizations for scrutiny.

    �I am appealing to employers to help the council fight this vice by bringing certificates of their employees for verification before employing them.

    This will help much in reducing the scope of the problem�, said Ndalichako.

    She said there were so many ways used to forge certificates that could make them look similar to genuine ones.

    She said some people used genuine certificates to print fake results, or used original certificates with forged names or printed forged certificates with examination results that were not recognized by NECTA.

    Ndalichako said in order to curb the problem, NECTA had stopped providing result slips at its offices.

    The slips would from now onwards be sent to secondary schools where candidates sat for their final examinations.

    She said the new system would start with form four candidates sitting for examinations on Monday.

    She said NECTA would continue modifying their certificates and that plans were under way to make them look different with normal certificates by changing some features, including the serial numbers and seal.

    Ndalichako also warned form four students who were expecting to do their final examinations on Monday to avoid cheating.

    This year, a total of 241,195 students will sit for form four national examinations, whereby 166,253 are from secondary school and 74,939 being private candidates.

    Tatizo si sekondari tu bali hadi vyeti vya vyuo vikuu. Na wengine sasa ni viongozi wa serikali waliona sifa za kuwa na shahada hadi PHD lakini inasadikika ni za kubumba.
    Je hizo nani atazihakiki?
