Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete on Friday sacked six ministers over graft allegations after a report by the auditor-general implicated numerous officials in cases of bribery and suspect procurements. Kikwete said in a televised address that the changes followed recommendations by lawmakers following the report that detailed misuse of public funds. "I had earlier promised to take to task ministers. They are now accountable for the mess by their subordinates and the rot in the ministries," he said. Ministers who were ditched are Mustafa Mkulo (Finance), Ezekiel Maige (Natural Resources and Tourism), William Ngeleja (Energy and Minerals), Omar Nundu (Transport), Hadji Mponda (Health) and Cyril Chami (Industry and Trade).
