President John Magufuli Fires 10000 Workers With Immediate Effect

Tanzanian President John Magufuli on Friday fired nearly 10,000 civil servants accused of having falsified academic qualifications to get their jobs.

The civil servants have been given 15 days to leave their jobs or risk jail terms of up to seven years.

Speaking in the capital, Dodoma, Magufuli described the 9,932 officials as “robbers and shoplifters” and ordered them to “immediately disappear from their work stations.”

The officials had been implicated by an independent evaluation that sought to determine the validity of the academic papers of public employees in Tanzania.

The evaluation followed a countrywide crackdown on phantom workers on the public payroll.

Since winning elections in 2015, Magufuli has strengthened his reputation for fighting corruption with decisions many see as aimed at improving service delivery.

Corruption is widespread in this East African country.
