Madagascar President Rajoelina dismisses all his ministers

Madagascar President Andry Rajoelina has sacked all his ministers, his office said.

He took the decision days after he criticised some of their performances as below par and weeks after officials said they had thwarted a plot to kill the former coup leader.

According to Reuters, Rajoelina's office gave no reason for the dismissals.

On Sunday, Rajoelina said the performance of some ministers was unsatisfactory.

"Like in a football team, you have to change when there are failures in government," he was quoted by the national broadcasting station.

Last week, a senior prosecutor said Madagascar had arrested 21 more suspects, including 12 military personnel, in connection with a plot to kill Rajoelina and topple the government.

Six people, one of them a French citizen, were arrested last month on suspicion of involvement in the plot, after what officials said was a months-long investigation in the Indian Ocean island.
