Having trouble passing exams?

Zimbabwean pastor, Prophet Sham Hungwe, claims ‘anointed pens’ will help students pass exams

News outlets from across Africa have reported how local holy man Prophet Sham Hungwe, of House of Grace International Church, has been working out of Machipisa Shopping Centre selling ‘holy’ ballpoints which, he claims, will take students down the road to success during exam season.

Despite actually only costing 15 cents (10p) each, South African radio station, News4Zim, reported how Hungwe has been selling the ballpoints for between $1 to $20 (65p to £13) each, telling parents and students: “It is anointed and I declare passes when your children sit for exams.”

You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.
