 Nyusi fires PM

Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi has sacked Prime Minister Carlos Agostinho do Rosário.

He is being replacing by Adriano Afonso Maleiane, who was finance minister and has been key in restructuring the country’s hidden debts which were at the heart of a corruption scandal that shook the country to its core.

The change comes as part of a major cabinet reshuffle – seen as an attempt by Mr Nyusi to deal with allegations of government mismanagement and corrupt practices.

Five sacked ministers have yet to be given new posts.
