Auditor-General’s Report on Registration, Supervision and Monitoring of Schools and Independent Colleges by Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education

Report tabled in National Assembly by the Speaker on 3 June 2021

The performance audit was carried out in order to assess the extent to which the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education (MoPSE) was registering, monitoring and supervising schools and independent colleges to ensure that there is quality education and also to proffer audit recommendations for improvement, where necessary. The assessment was prompted by public outcry on the sprouting of unregistered schools and the quality of education offered in the country. Also Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 implores the Government to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education (MoPSE) is responsible for primary and secondary education. It is governed by the Education Act [Chapter25:04] and Section 19 (2) (d) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe which provides that the State must adopt reasonable policies and measures to ensure that children have access to appropriate education and training. The MoPSE is decentralised in 10 provinces and 72 education districts.
