    Sierra Leone’s President Julius Maada Bio has dismissed his Justice Minister and Attorney General less than two months after he appointed him to the post.
    Although no reasons were given, the dismissal of Charles Francis Margai, a former presidential candidate comes amid dissatisfaction by some members of the judiciary over his apparently combative posture.
    The former Justice Minister has been replaced by Dr Priscilla Schwartz, the first female holder of the post.
    WADR’s Sahr Komba explains more about the dismissal of Mr Margai.
