Rwanda’s government has laid off 198 police officials across different ranks after they engaged in corruption and other malpractices. The east African country, which gained international commendation in its battle for transparency, has set an example for other African countries.
The country’s cabinet, chaired by President Paul Kagame, approved the officers’ dismissal at a Friday meeting. The sacked officials include a police superintendent and some chief inspectors of police, among others.
