Tanzanian President John Magufuli on Friday fired 9,932 civil servants who were found using fake educational certificates to work.


Magufuli made the announcement on state television after receiving a report on public servants' certificates verification. He said salaries of 9,000 plus employees for this month should be withheld after an investigative task force found that 9,932 government workers presented fake qualifications when they were employed.
The president immediately ordered that the dismissed civil servants would have to defend themselves in court, 'so that they could be jailed for seven years as the law says.'

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