Minister of Education in Zambia, David Mabumba was on Wednesday sacked by the country’s President Edgar Lungu after nud£ video clips of him went viral on social media.
The Minister’s dismissal was contained in a statement from the Presidency, signed by Lungu’s spokesperson Isaac Chipampe.
Although the president didn’t state categorically in the dismissal letter that it was concerning the embarrassing development, it came after the private tape of a man that looks like him went viral.
“I have relieved Minister of General Education Hon David Mabumba of his duty with immediate effect. I have thanked him for the services he rendered to Government and wished him well in his future endeavours,” the statement read in part.
He has been replaced at the ministry of education by Dennis Wanchinga.
Police say they are investigating the matter while the National Guidance Affairs Minister Reverend Godfridah Sumaili has urged the public to stop circulating the video.
Ms Sumaili has told the local media it is unethical and immoral for people to continue circulating the video.
