Madagascar’s education minister fired for attempted embezzlement over her plans to buy $2.2million sweets for school children

Madagascar’s education minister has been fired for attempted embezzlement over plans to order more than $2.2m worth of sweets for schoolchildren.

Rijasoa Andriamanana had explained that pupils would be given three lollipops each to take after they drink the “bitter” COVID-Organics concoction. She said it will help mask the “bitter” aftertaste of the herbal remedy for Coronavirus.

Sadly for her, the plan was halted after Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina kicked against it and accused her of planning to embezzle funds in her ministry.

A statement annoucing the minister’s dismissal also confirmed her counterpart in the higher education ministry, Elia Béatrice as the acting Minister of Education.
