Are Matebeleland primary schools cursed?


Bulawayo legislator Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga has requested the Speaker of Parliament Jacob Mudenda to ask the Minister of Primary and Secondary Education Cain Mathema to issue a statement on why most of the schools that recorded a zero pass rate in the recently announced Grade 7 results are from Matebeleland.

She said out of the 88 schools which had a zero pass rate, most of them were from Matebeleland North and South. She did not give the exact breakdown.

Mudenda said he would get in touch with the minister?

Ed: Any thoughts why this is the case?
