  3. Its exactly what happened in Tanzania where most Senior government officials had forged papers.Yes quick action should be taken to arrest perpetrators. They are the same people who are lowering our standards.

  4. Comment:
    Those idiots should be dealt with &accordingly.
    How were they employed by the government? yet those documents were
    first verified & certified by relevant authorities. Does it mean that all of them were corrupt? Shame, shame and shame. Publicise those names immediately.

  5. Also deal with the personel recruiting them they are the people responsible for making these unqualified missiccrints pay for promotions some with a diploma is headmaster when a number of them have degrees , adding there salaries when they are not qualified for the particular grade I urge the teaching cauncil to seriously scrutinize and deal with human resource personel and their cartels in the system.

  6. All their terminal benefits & assets should be forfieted to the state and they should be proscuted the same way as criminals. Please let the genuine teachers fill these vacant positions.
