Tanzania president sacks 9,932 civil servants over fake qualifications

President John Magufuli of Tanzania on Friday fired 9,932 civil servants over forged educational qualifications.

Magufuli made the announcement on state television after an investigative task force found that 9,932 government workers presented fake qualifications when they were employed.

The president said the dismissed civil servants would have to defend themselves in court.

“They are thieves like any other thieves. … You cannot perform if you don’t have deserving qualifications,’’ Magufuli said.
