President Sal dismissed the Minister of Health


Senegalese President Maki Sal ousted Health Minister Abdoulaye Diouf Sar today after yesterday’s tragedy at a hospital in the city of Tivuan, where 11 babies died from a fire in a newborn unit.

Sar will be replaced by Marie Kemes Ngom Diaye, the current director general of the Ministry of Health, as stated in the presidential decree.

Wednesday’s deadly fire was reportedly caused by a short circuit and spread rapidly, killing 11 babies at the recently inaugurated public hospital.
