President John Magufuli sacked 9,932 such workers who were found to had forged their academic certificates to while applying for the jobs.
In the recent public servants’ verification of academic qualifications these workers were found to have submitted fake certificates.
The president also ordered to withheld the salaries of the affected workers and announced they need to defend themselves in court.
Magufuli said about Sh19.84 billion were being lost every month in terms of salaries to these workers.
He added that such ghost workers are thieves and their names should be published in all the leading media in Tanzania to shame them for the wrong doing.
The president continued, “I am giving them up to May 15 to leave voluntarily, failing which the law must take its course. If found guilty, they should be imprisoned for seven years according to the law.”
