Umalusi CEO Dr Mafu Rakometsi says the full extent of leaked papers has not been established.

Examination quality assurance body Umalusi says the integrity of the matric exams has to be protected.

The Department of Basic Education announced that maths paper 2 and physical science paper 2 will have to be rewritten because they were leaked.

Minister Angie Motshekga said the decision for the paper to be rewritten was not easy.

John Perlman speaks to Umalusi CEO Dr Mafu Rakometsi about why they took this decision.
