Somalia’s prime minister has sacked the country’s minister of education but gave no reason, the state-run radio reported.
“Somali Prime Minister Hassan Ali Kheyre today, 26 July 2018, issued a decree sacking Honourable Abdirahman Dahir Osman from his post of minister of education,” Radio Mogadishu reported quoting a decree from the premier’s office.
Abdirahman Habit has been appointed to the position in an acting capacity, the radio said.
The dismissal came hours after the minister released the results of the country’s Unified National Secondary School Examinations conducted earlier this year.
It also came after Mr Dini said the Somali government does not recognise any degrees received from any of the universities in Mogadishu.
Earlier this month, PM Kheyre dismissed Hassan Maalim Hussein from his post of minister of religious affairs for unspecified reasons.
Somalia elected Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed Farmajo as president in early 2017.
On 23 February, last year, President Farmajo appointed Hassan Ali Kheyre as prime minister.
