Home Affairs minister sacked


Published

President John Magufuli has dismissed his Minister of Home Affairs, Charles Kitwanga.

The minister reportedly turned up to parliament and answered questions in the chamber whilst drunk. Since being elected last year the president has set a zero tolerance on lazy and inefficient officials and has made it clear that he will not tolerate any behaviour which falls below the highest standards.
