Zambian Education Minister David Mabumba was fired Wednesday by the country’s president Edgar Lungu after nude videos of him went viral on social media.
The dismissal of the minister was contained in a statement by the Presidency, signed by Lungu spokesman Isaac Chipampe.
Although no reason was identified for his jacket, he may not be disconnected from the viral video of him masturbating.
The minister was seen in the video stroking himself while he was in the live WhatsApp video with a woman.
Since then, the video has generated a lot of controversy and debate in the country and in Africa.
Although the Minister has not yet commented on the video, the police in the country are now investigating the circulation.
Mabumba has been replaced by Dennis Wanchinga.
