The Tanzanian government has announced at least 15,000 new job vacancies for its civil servants.

This follows the recent sacking of close to 10,000 civil servants by Tanzania’s president John Magufuli.

Laurian Ndumbaro, the permanent Secretary in the President’s Office in charge of Public Service and Good Governance, said that the government will hire 15,000 new workers by the end of June.

He asked all affected institutions to submit their employment requirements in due course.

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

Last week, Magufuli fired 9,932 public servants found in possession of fake academic certificates following verification of their academic qualifications.

He as well ordered for their April salaries to be withheld with immediate effect.

The head of state then directed Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa to have the posts, which were held by the over 9,000 public servants, be advertised straightaway.

All other civil servants who will be found with academic certificates that are not genuine will face the full force of the law.

Magufuli well known for his no-nonsense character also declared that the crackdown of fake academic certificates for public servants will add to an earlier exercise by the government to identify phantom employees.

A similar move was conducted last year by the Tanzanian government when it removed more than 10,000 ghost workers from its payroll after a countrywide audit.
