Tanzanian government has announced 15,000 job vacancies for civil servants following the recent sack of more than 9,000 phantom workers for submitting forged academic documents.

Laurian Ndumbaro, Permanent Secretary in the Tanzania President’s Office (Public Service and Good Governance), announced Wednesday about the job vacancies saying interested and eligible candidates can apply by the end of June 2017 for the relevant posts.

Ndumbaro said, “The government is aware that there are areas that have been affected by the recent sacking of more than 9,000 civil servants.”

Tanzanian President John Magufuli meanwhile has also called the affected institutions to submit requirements.

Very recently Magufuli sacked 9,932 civil servants who were found in verification to have submitted fake academic certificates.

He had also ordered earlier to withheld the salaries of phantom workers for the month of April.

He added further those sacked employees who believe to have been sacked mistakenly need to defend themselves in court.

He continued the ghost workers are thieves and have cheated the government Sh19.84 billion every month or Sh238.1 billion per year.

Last May too Magufuli sacked over 10,000 phantom civil workers after a nationwide audit.
