Nearly 10,000 Tanzanian civil servants have fake school certificates, according to a report received by President John Magufuli.
The details released in the capital, Dodoma, show that 9,932 government employees were found to have fraudulent secondary school qualifications.
The BBC’s Sammy Awami says that this is just over 2% of the country’s 435,000 civil servants.
Immediately after assuming office Mr Magufuli temporarily suspended recruitment for government jobs and ordered an audit of state workers.
