A teacher in Senegal has been given a five-year prison sentence and another has been fined 32,000 Dollars for selling exam papers.
French, English, history and geography baccalaureate tests had to be scrapped last year after the question sheets circulated on social media and WhatsApp.
Several other teachers and dozens of pupils have also been punished. Their sentences range from two-month suspended terms to two years in jail.
The headmaster of Lycée de Kahone in Senegal’s capital city, Dakar, admitted selling exam papers but said he was not motivated by the money.
In addition to his five-year prison sentence, Dia was fined 500,000 CFA francs (886 Dollars).
