Somalia has announced thee postponement of its national high school examinations after discovering the that the exams papers were all over social media.

According to Education Minister Abdullahi Godah Barre in a broadcast on national TV, any exams that have already been taken have been invalidated.

Students have been sitting their final year exams since Saturday and they were supposed to end on a week’s time, but Mr Barre said the postponement was necessary.

Over 31,000 students, across five of Somalia’s regional states, will be affected by the postponement.

A video has been shared online of Mr Barre and the police boss trying calm down students who were protesting against the postponement.
