Recurring examination cheating in Zimbabwe requires establishment of a watertight system. The entire episode involving English paper 2 turned out to be a disgrace where a tragic path was cut with far reaching consequences on the education system’s dignity. Damage has been done what remains are to pick the pieces and make repairs as soon as the dust settles. According to Ornstein and Hunkins (2004) in curriculum foundations, principles and issues, curriculum development is central to nation building and national development. In any progressive country, education plays a vital role in politico-social and economic development. Without realistic solutions to our national problems, our educational system becomes a wasteful and dangerous joke indeed.
