A Tanzanian MP Francis Ndulane shocked many after being nominated for a government post but dropped and replaced after he struggled and failed to take an oath of office.


Francis Ndulane, who was appointed to become an assistant minister in the mines ministry, strived to say the words several times before being ordered to take a seat as other nominees were called to take their oath.


A video of the event graced by President John Magufuli has been shared on Twitter.

President Pombe Magufuli in his speech said that he had analysed the CVs of all nominees before appointing them but added that Mr Ndulane would be replaced.


“I will give this position to someone who can take the oath properly,” the president said.


He told Mr Ndulane that he will retain his MP seat but “we will have to get a replacement”.


However, Mr Ndulane did not explain why he strived to take the oath.
