Fellow citizens,

In line with our restructuring and reorganisation program, we have with immediate effect terminated the services of some government officials who include Permanent Secretaries as well as some ambassadors and staff that were in foreign missions.

We thank them for their services rendered to the nation. These changes will continue and will be done in line with our vision for our Country. We wish them all the best in their endeavours.

May God Bless our Country.
