Prof Ngomo Horrace Manga, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Buea is leading the investigation this time around pertaining to the final-semester examination involving money being transferred via MTN services to UB lecturers.
Cameroon Intelligence Report gathered that the first step in the process is for the lecturers to humiliate the students who do not clear the exam. After that the lecturers comforts them and says he would be able to help. He eventually takes a bribe and changes the marks.
The Vice Chancellor’s communiqué made public evidence collected from several students when the irregularity was brought to light.
It is estimated that some one hundred students benefitted from the cash-for-marks scam scheme.
