JOHANNESBURG - The Hawks said that more arrests were imminent in the matric paper leaks scandal.

This follows the arrest of a suspect in connection with the theft of the matric Maths Paper Two.

Themba Shikwambana was arrested for the leak of the Maths Paper 2 exam last Wednesday following an investigation by the Hawks.

Three matric papers were leaked last month.

The Hawks are hoping to make more arrests in connection with the leaking of the Maths Paper 2, Physical Science and Life Sciences Exams.

Hawks spokesperson Katlego Mogale: "Themba Shikwambana works for a Johannesburg-based company that is contracted by the Department of Basic Education to print the current year's matric exam papers."

The Hawks said that investigations into how the other exam papers were leaked were continuing.
