Rwanda Fires 200 Police Officers Accused Of Corruption

Rwanda’s government has dismissed 200 police officers implicated in corruption, reports AP news agency.

AP adds that police spokesman Theos Badege said there would be “no mercy” for corrupt officers.

The dismissal of the police officers was approved by a Cabinet meeting last Friday chaired by President Paul Kagame.

Rwanda has been hailed by donor countries for punishing corrupt officials and is sub-Saharan Africa’s third least corrupt country, according to Transparency International’s latest survey.
